The house has a capacity for six people, offering two suites with private bathroom and a double sofa-bed. Guests can enjoy the lovely living room and a fully equipped kitchen, plus laundry room.

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful little house where my great-grandmother was born. She was the daughter of the Quinta de Freixieiro caretakers, and was raised by the ladies of the “big house”.

When Freixieiro became my family’s home, we rebuilt the small house next to it. After getting married, Xico, the eldest son of a family that has been working with us for forty years, moved into this house. There, the often called “brave boy” in all senses of the word, raised his family, brought his dreams to life and helped take care of the Quinta de Freixieiro. Be it night or day, Sunday or a holiday, as soon as his name would be heard: “-Oh Xico!”, there he would come, immediately, to help those in need.

His new dreams led him away from the house (but not too far), and this house could not have any other name than – Casa do Xico!
Just like him, it is a beautiful, strong and welcoming house.
