Caza da Cabaza was originally a farmhouse used by two families about a hundred years ago. Its various rooms and cellars accommodated people and livestock, and provided storage for produce and animal feed.
Its unusual name goes back to when the house was inhabited by an old woman who wore wide, traditional petticoats. The children of the village nicknamed her Tia Cabaza, or Auntie Pumpkin, and thus the house acquired its name. Years later the house was abandoned and fell into ruin. It remained like this until the early 2000's when it was rebuilt as a casa rural, a country guest house. In 2016, we bought Casa da Cabaza, completed the restoration work and added our personal touches to make this B&B the unique place that it now is.
