The Casas da Encosta project consists of three schist houses that are under restoration in Cunqueiros, a village in the Proença-a-Nova district. 
Here you can relive the life, history and culture of the local people, in the comfort of a typical village in the Beira region. The property's owners, Nuno e Rita, tell us that the houses are being restored with respect to local building traditions where schist, clay and wood are the predominant features.

One of them, Casa da Lagariça, opened its doors in 2014 with a capacity of up to six people, and where a lagariça (a small wine press), one of the region's unique implements, is on display in the lounge. Those passing through can appreciate the region through walking tours, discover the river beaches and viewpoints, explore the Schist Villages and, of course, savour the rich and varied gastronomy with typical dishes such as Cabrito Estonado (regional way of preparing roast kid), Maranho (stuffed sheep or goat stomach and herbs) and Bucho (stuffed stomach).
