Hotel Story

Peneda Ecofarm

Peneda ecofarm, located on the fringes of the Peneda – Gerês National Park is dedicated to organic farming, integrating permaculture concepts. We are a couple, Pedro and Elisabete, with two young daughters. We lived and worked in Porto most of our lives. One day, we left the city, our jobs, sold the house and came to the countryside. We bought an abandoned farm and since 2017 we have been working to fulfill our vision: to create a multifunctional space and rehearse new ways of being and doing towards a more balanced, healthy, tolerant and happy model of life, at the ecological and human level...
