Tranquility, Comfort, Authenticity, Detail…

These are the elements that define the essence of the charming and flavour houses – Casas da Li, where we put at your disposal customized experiences, programmed to the measure and according to your expectations. We select our best room, we suggest our best recipes, with our most authentic products, we prepare themed workshops and unforgettable adventures in the mountains and rivers of the region.

The Casas da Li are made up of two traditional small houses, located at the top of the village of Santa Cristina, remarkably recovered from abandonment, harmoniously combining rurality with materials and traditional architecture , with the comfort of a contemporary interior design.

The stone of the region – granite, wood, iron, stylized bathrooms and cozy rooms with large light wood surfaces – give these houses brightness and comfort. In the living room, the fireplace, the magazines, the books and our bar service, make the laziness last longer without blame. The outdoor areas, the swimming pool, the chestnut trees, the herbs allow you to stroll, feeling the dew of the morning, the midday sun on your face or the breeze that hangs in the air in the late afternoon. The landscape that Casas da Li glances over the Lima valley is dizzying and out of sight.

The meals are an unforgettable experience, moments of full talk or romantic dinners by candlelight, we prepare the perfect environment for you. In the morning, the bread from the oven, the freshly baked apple pie, the various fresh fruit juices, homemade jams, the various types of tea and cookies are a real treat for the senses.
