All farms have a history. This one begins in 2007, with a couple, Luis and Lurdes returning to their roots, through a sustainable project that respects nature, man, art, and traditions. The trips they made with some regularity to Lurdes’s mother’s village – Vinhó, municipality of Gouveia, at the foot of the Serra da Estrela – they made their decision to acquire a property there. In the region the scenery is stunning: authentic live portraits dominated by valleys of fertile lands.
The dream emerged with the acquisition of the farm Madre de Água – Hotel Serra da Estrela, with 16 hectares, that had some buildings in granite stone, a 40 year old vineyard plot, many olive trees, oak trees, chestnut trees, pine trees, century-old cherry trees, rock formations from the Ice age and many water wells. This is the farm that gives the name to the project Madre de Água, in which the logo represents an image of water crystals.
