Welcome to Casa das Letras

The construction of Casa das Letras – Rural Tourism in Peneda-Gerês took place over 50 years ago. It was an elementary school, where every day the letters circulated on the blackboards. In 2018, we appeared. We fell in love with the land and felt it was the ideal place to build the holiday home of our dreams. These walls have many stories to tell.

Ponte da Barca is the ideal place for a weekend getaway or a long stay. Whatever your choice, our Casa das Letras – Rural Tourism in Peneda-Gerês, offers the ideal conditions for a peaceful holiday filled with experiences, where you can rest your body and mind.

An old primary school, completely remodeled and adapted, with a large space and modern decoration, today gives life to Casa das Letras – Rural Tourism in Peneda-Gerês. A tourist accommodation in rural areas, surrounded by nature, which becomes the ideal destination for those looking for a peaceful and lively retreat just a few minutes from the Peneda-Gerês National Park.

Rest and go sightseeing in the Peneda-Gerês region and in the stunning environment of its unique nature. Come and discover the region Peneda-Gerês, take a deep breath and be happy here!

We want Casa das Letras to be for you what it is for us, a perfect retreat to enjoy nature and recharge, allowing for a memorable stay in an intimate setting.

The house exceeded our (high) expectations. The decoration details make the house very welcoming. It has outdoor furniture for all meals and the pool has very good sun exposure. It is possible to go to buy bread by bicycle. The possibility of harvesting the vegetables (always fresh) from the garden is very nice. Ideal space to rest and with the possibility of visiting Gerês.

Surprisingly nice house and location. Comfort and well-being in every room. Young and friendly owners always available. Excellent option for a holiday with family or friends. We recommend and intend to repeat.

Fantastic local accommodation, with excellent conditions, as well as a good location. Well equipped house and well-prepared amenities (eg Grill and pool). The ideal to get out of the routine and enjoy with friends or family. Mr. André was a super kind and friendly person, always offering his help for whatever was needed. Certainly to repeat!
