Il y a beaucoup de beaux endroits à voir: Braga, Viana di Castelo, Santiago di Compostella, le parc national de Peneda-Geres, etc. Il y a aussi de belles plages à moins de 30mn de conduite (y aller la matin, l'après-midi, il peut y avoir du vent). L'accueil des propriétaires fut formidable. Le petit déjeuner du premier jour nous attendait dans la maison, Hjordis nous a aidé à préparer nos visites, etc.. Merci Hjordis et Robin!

The views are spectatular and eating our evening meal on the terrace looking down over the valley was a real highlight of the day. The pool is large and carefully fenced in. The children had many happy hours there. Northern Portugal is a great place to be and Adria was always on hand if we needed her, as a good host. Many thanks. We would love to come again one day.
