Located in the village of Orca, the house was built by the owner's grandfather around 1930 and rehabilitated in 2017. From the original house stood the thick stone walls and the balcony. The part of the house to rent is the old shop, where the grandparents kept the implements and the country products. The house is in the liveliest place in the village: next to the People's olive grove, with the public pool 200 meters away and the children's playground in front.
The house has a patio that borders the olive grove and which guests can use.

Guest access
The house is in the village and close to the local business. Free parking next to the house.

Where you’ll be

Castelo Branco, Portugal

Orca is synonymous with tapir or dolmen. In the Neolithic, the region where the Orca is located was populated by the peoples of megalithic culture, who buried the dead in temples built with huge stones. These graves are called orcas, tapirs or dolmens. The village evolved from a medieval farm. The medieval housing center would be next to the chapel of Nª Senhora da Oliveira. This chapel was built in the 19th century. XVI. Next to the chapel there is an olive tree that is thought to be 600 years old. From medieval times there are several graves excavated in the rock. The Mother Church, dedicated to Saint Francis of Assisi, marks the beginning of the Orca as a village from the XVI. Next to the road is Fonte Velha (now known as Fonte da Mina) and next to the chapel of Santo António is Fonte Nova. Other sources deserve a visit, such as Stuttering and Mulberry. Stuttering Fountain has a snack park. The bridge over the Taveiró stream is worth a visit. Built in the 16th century, it was rebuilt in the late 16th century. XIX. The regional products you can buy in the village are cheeses, sausages, honey and traditional cakes.

Sou licenciada em Antropologia e pós-graduada em História. Gosto de compreender a vida da gente comum, tanto do passado, como do presente. Adoro animais (cuido de quatro gatos). Reconstruir a casa dos meus avós paternos (e onde nasceu o meu Pai) foi um tributo que lhes quis prestar e é uma forma de reviver os felizes momentos que passei na sua companhia. Além de ser um prazer estar na Orca e conviver com os seus simpáticos habitantes... e ouvir passarinhos a toda a hora.
