Caminho de Santiago - Facha
Our story begins when cousin Rute entrusted us with this legacy, consisting of the house, the property and adjacent fields, namely the chestnut plantation that has 15 years and previously were fields of corn and vine. The house where the rooms are today, the hall and the kitchen were used to store the crops and agricultural material. In 2004 the rehabilitation works that we present today to our distinguished guests were finalized and thus allowed us to improve the art of receiving.
