In the heart of Gerês, next to the Caldelas thermal springs, Casa do Rancho was born out of Marta pimenta and Renato Costa desire to live in the countryside and create a unique place where we could welcome people from various corners of the world in a family atmosphere, in total respect and harmony with tradition and nature.

The refurbishment of the house was developed with a strong historical awareness, the rule was to have the least impact on the pre-existing architecture of the building. Two cosy houses with large and bright rooms have been restored.

Integrated in a magnificent landscape, the stone patio displays a typical Minho granary next to a threshing floor that reminds us of old times. The pool overlooking the houses mirrors the green hills, and a garden with barbecue area extends a panorama of great beauty.

The concept of Casa do Rancho is based on a policy of environmental sustainability, which extends throughout the life cycle of the house's activity in order to reduce its ecological footprint.
