From abbey house to agritourism place

First mentioned in the 13th century as belonging to the abbey of Vila Cha, which employed labor for livestock and agriculture, Casa d'Augusta has remained rooted in its agricultural past.

Today, the estate has become a place of vacation and meetings around the good practices of agritourism. The vegetable garden and orchards are still cultivated with the ancestral techniques of permaculture. Casa d'Augusta has even been awarded the Biosphere Committed Portugal certification.

A relaxing environment to recharge your batteries

In the summer, enjoy the outdoor pool to relax and recharge your batteries after a great day of sightseeing. Young and old alike will love meeting the farm animals : ducks, chickens, 2 donkeys, a dog and a cat live at Casa d'Augusta.
