Casa de Santo António de Britiande


Respect for nature is the driving force at Casa de Santo António. We not only strive to preserve and publicise the characteristic flora of the area but we have also classified all the birds on the estate through the project “Discover the birds in your garden” promoted by SPEA – The Portuguese Society for the Study of Birds. SPEA identified 26 different species around the House.


Within the property itself guests of Casa de Santo António de Britiande are invited to take part in activities that are conducive to rest and relaxation and to enjoy their contact with nature in an environment of peace and quiet.
