About Isabel

I'm Isabel and me and my family, we believe that travel and sharing experiences is what enrich us.

That´s why we decide to start a project and renovate an ancient family house. We created MEIO, so we can be able to share with our visitors the natural beauty of Alcanede and the Natural Park, the gastronomy, traditions and unique experiences that this region has to offer.

Why Isabel chose Alcanede

A slightly familiar atmosphere, green surroundings, fresh air, sounds of nature and the luxury of freedom. The space you will find is an ancient estate, renovated over generations in our family. The property has a small river that runs through it and over which there is still a Roman bridge. It keeps a stone tank and a noria which once gave life to a colourful orchard, extending for about four hectars. From Monte da Fonte we can see the whole village and its castle.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The sound of the birds and the river, the green tones. The brightness of stars in the evenings on the terrace.
