Quando descobrimos o pequeno povoado da Daroeira, em 1999, apaixonámo-nos imediatamente pela magia deste lugar escondido. Longe das multidões, mas apenas a 15 minutos das infinitas praias brancas do Sotavento Algarvio e da natureza intocada do Parque Nacional da Ria Formosa, as Casas da Serra são o local perfeito para passar umas férias calmas no meio da natureza e sob o céu azul claro do Sotavento. A praia mais próxima, a "Praia da Fábrica" é também uma das últimas praias intocadas da Europa.

In 2000 we bought the country house “Serro da Volta” and began to renovate it in the traditional Algarve style, employing local craftsmen and using traditional materials such as handmade roof tiles, canes and hydraulic tiles. Serro da Volta is a detached house, a few hundred meters away from the village of Daroeira, in the midst of an ecological reserve. A small creek runs through the two hectar property and the house is surrounded by centenary olive and carob trees. At Serro da Volta it is just you and the wild beauty of nature.

11 years later, in 2011, we began to renovate a second house, “Monte do Cansado”, located in the middle of the village. Its bedroom and terrace offers breathtaking views over the hills and valleys of Tavira’s hinterland.

Em 2016, depois da nossa mudança de Berlim para Lisboa, decidimos partilhar a experiência única das nossas casas de campo na Daroeira com hóspedes de todo o mundo que procuram passar as suas férias num ambiente autêntico e individual, longe dos trilhos batidos do turismo de massas.

In the first years we met wonderful people, some of which even became friends, and decided to move our Casas da Serra project to the next level. “Casa do Troco”, our third house, used to be the trading point for the surrounding villages. At the same time, it was famous for its long ballroom nights. Until the 1980s, old and young people from the neighbouring villages came to Daroeira to listen and dance to the music of local accordion players. But as the young people started to move to the urban centres of Faro, Tavira, and Vila Real de Santo António, Casa do Troco was closed down and abandoned. We want to bring new life to this historic house, not only as a holiday home, but also as a place for friends to meet, cook together, play music, and get together with local people. Casa do Troco has opened its doors in June 2020. An opening party to bring together our friends, family, and neighbours and follow up on the house’s long and rich history had to be postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Em 2019 comprámos a Casa do Pátio, uma antiga casa no meio da aldeia, cujo enorme terraço oferece as mais incríveis vistas sobre os montes e vales do Sotavento. A abertura da Casa do Pátio está prevista para Junho de 2020. Casa do Pátio opened in June 2020.

Serro da Volta

Serro da Volta

Surrounded by a small creek, our country house “Serro da Volta” lies alone in a sheltered valley, close to the village of Daroeira. The main house has 5 bedrooms, 3 of which are “en suite” (one with a separate entrance from the terrace), a large open-plan kitchen and a bathroom. The second house “Casa Branca” is a separate apartment with a large living room/bedroom and a private bathroom. The 12.5-meter water tank is surrounded by olive trees and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding hills.

Com aquecimento central em todas as divisões, o Serro da Volta é um dos poucos locais onde se pode desfrutar do Sotavento Algarvio também no Inverno e na Primavera, quando as praias e trilhos para caminhadas estão vazios, as plantas estão verdes e as flores estão a florir.

Casa do Troco

Casa do Troco used to be an old trading house with a barbershop and a ballroom, where the inhabitants of the neighbouring villages danced to the sound of a local accordion player. Today it is a spacious house with a swimming pool, an old outside threshing floor turned into a terrace and a giant cooking and dining space with a kitchen island that invites you to cook with family and friends. Casa do Troco has 5 bedrooms for a maximum 9 guests.
