Sehr Ruhiges und Uhriges Cottage mitten im einzigen National Park Portugals .

  • 4 of 5

Ein gemütliches und mit viel Charme eingerichtetes Landhaus mitten in der Natur eines der schönsten Regionen Nord Portugals,nah am Rio Cavado Stausee und Serra do Geres,von hier aus kann mann Auto-Touren und oder Wanderungen ansteuern oder einfach den Tag am Pool geniessen und abschalten....(kein verkehr,flugzeuge oder sonstiges lärm).

Wir haben es GENOSSEN.

Man muss leider dazu sagen das seit der alte Herr des Hauses verstorben ist, dass es dem Grundstück und Garten-Anlage drumm herum an Pflege und kleiner Reparaturen fehlt zum.bsp. der weg von wo man das Auto parkt bis zum Eingang braucht licht oder draußen im Garten da könnte man viele der vorhandene Lampen und

Lichtschalter reparieren,auch ein Wasseranschluß draußen wäre gut....

Ich hoffe es werde sich jemanden drumm kümmern.! Es wäre schade dieser kleiner Ruheparadies zerfallen zu lassen.

Aber sonst fehlt es an nichts was man braucht einige Tage um hier in Ruhe zu verweilen, bevorzugt im Sommer aber im Winter mit Kaminfeuer auch.

Pequeno paraíso na terra

  • 5 of 5

Local mágico, ideal para quem quer esquecer-se do mundo lá fora e mergulhar na natureza em estado puro.

Apesar de não ter estado calor suficiente para usarmos a piscina, os baloiços ao por-do-sol e as noites aconchegantes à lareira superaram tudo! Acordar com os passarinhos e ter pão fresquinho todas as manhãs são pequenos pormenores que dinheiro nenhum pode comprar.

Saí de alma leve e renovada! Esperamos voltar! E se possível no Verão :)

Obrigado sr. Fernando por nos deixar entrar neste seu pequeno paraíso!

Casa do garrano

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place!

After 2 months of traveling in a camper van, on campsites through northern Spain, this was what we needed: a big house for ourselves, our own swimming pool and peaceful rest!

We enjoyed every minute and hope to come back again once...

Thanks a lot we could enjoy your warm, welcoming family-house!
