Taste the best Serra da Estrela cheese!

There are many questions regarding the cheese-making tradition in Serra da Estrela region and you can get the answers to all of them while visiting an organic farm, close to the garden city town Viseu, during your holiday in the Center of Portugal.

At the farm with an excellent view over Serra da Estrela, the family will be there to welcome you at the cheese factory and will guide you and share the recipe for the most delicious cheese in central Portugal.

The farm is organic and produces not only cheese, but also vegetables, chestnuts and eggs from free-range chickens. During the visit you can meet the pigs, chickens, dogs and cats. Encountering all these animals makes this tour ideal for groups and families with children.

What is included:

  • Arrival to the meeting point and welcome by the hosts
  • Special Cheese Tasting (long-maturing sheep’s cheese, and a buttery sheep’s cheese, Serra da Estrela)
  • Taste of smoked meats and various savory snacks, accompanied by bread and jams
  • Drinks (wine, juice and water)
