Casa do Desassossego
The "Casa do Desassossego" compound is located in Lugar da Portela, parish of Riba-de-Mouro, municipality of Monção 20 km from the city centres of the villages of Monção and Melgaço.
The project began at the end of 2017, when Marcelo Oliveira founded Atmosfera Clássica, the promoter of this campaign.
The company was set up to develop a rural tourism project, in a 1948 dwelling. Since that date, the architectural project was started and completed, and the rehabilitation work began. The building will have the capacity to accommodate up to twelve people, spread over six suites. In addition to the suites, the villa will have a living room, a lounge, a kitchen and a leisure area that will consist of a gym, a sauna and a jacuzzi. The building will also be adapted for disabled users. The company estimates that the opening of the compound will take place within three months, in early October 2021.
The funds raised through this campaign will be used to finance a 3.6 kW solar power plant for self-consumption with a battery unit and a high-efficiency air conditioning system (heat pump for air conditioning and floor heating with solar thermal panels). The photovoltaic solar system will produce about 4.9MWh of energy annually, equivalent to reducing 1 ton of CO2 or planting 45 trees.
This system will make the accommodation practically self-sufficient in energy terms. The village of Monção has several tourist, cultural and leisure quality offerings. In particular, the Brejoeira Palace, inscribed in a vast rural property, famous for its architecture and the Alvarinho wine that is produced there, an entity with which "Casa do Desassossego” celebrated protocols to make available to its customers guided tours and tasting programs. It is also possible to visit the Monção Castle, erected on the left bank, downstream of Melgaço or the Alvarinho Museum, located in Casa do Curro.

MWh clean energy
The funds raised through this campaign will be used to acquire a solar power plant for self-consumption with 10 photovoltaic panels, a heat pump and two high-efficiency air conditioning systems (HVAC – the most environmentally friendly solution on the market).
This investment will eliminate the costs associated with energy consumption and position the compound as an "environmentally friendly" location. The occupancy rates foreseen for the first few years will generate sufficient means to meet the return of this loan.
