Cavalo de Madeira

We opened our guesthouse and artist’s residence in August 2015 here in Arelho directly at the Lagoa de Obidos, a beautiful natural reserve with lots of birds, a rich flora and fauna and a great place for many activities like sailing, kiting, running, swimming and biking.

The remains of the old farm-house and vinery are integrated in the new guesthouse and create together with the modern architecture and art a fascinating atmosphere.

We used as much as possible natural and untreated materials as wood, cork and stone to create a harmonic and healthy place for a relaxing stay in the middle of this natural paradise.
