Casa do Garrano is a charming mountain cottage located in a quiet rural setting in the heart of the Geres National Park. It is located inside a big garden propriety and just 200 metres from the Canicada Dam lake. It is the perfect place for those who look for a quite and charming place as well as for those who look for countless outdoor activities.

100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.
The pool was mainly shaded so cold and unusable. Also cluttered and old fashioned.
The pool was never more tha a third in the sun and only that for a couple of hours. We asked the owner before booking about sun on the pool to which his reply was almost all day day shadow 18.30. The seating area around the pool needed a good clean. The details let us believe that there were bicycles and canoe for use of visitors this was not the case. The casa needs a lot of maintenance the fridge shelves broken and missing, the shower leaks, generally in a sad state. The house is very cluttered with many ornaments, and vases of dusty silk flowers, and dirty plastic fruit and vegetables in the kitchen. I have contacted the owner on return but had a very uncaring reply. So in conclusion although the casa is in a picturesque area it is very shady and dark, there are a lot of barking dogs and noisy pleasure boats on the lake. I hope this is a helpful feedback.
The guests spent 15 days in the house never report any complainants when they where on holidays, that could give us a change of attend some of the compliments.
The pool has sun light.
There are no details that we provide bicycles and canoe, we let the guest know were they can rent them.
The house being clutter and old fashion, is a personal opinion that can be verified by the pictures we provide on the site.
The problem of the fridge having broken shelf's, was already rectify.
The house not be clean was never report, not even the housekeeper went to change the linen.
Unfortunately the guest contact me after more then 20 days, complaining about everything and asking for a refund.
I was anything but polite with the guest, but he just try to get a refund or else post a bad review, what he just did more then a month after the holidays are over.
Even so we take all opinions serious and will do the best efforts to attend all the complaint.
Sehr Ruhiges und Uhriges Cottage mitten im einzigen National Park Portugals .
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.
Un estancia maravillosa con mi familia,a casa muy acogedora y completa.
Sin habla de las vistas que tiene a casa espetacula disfrutamos muchos.
Um sítio fantástico escondido do mundo.
Pequeno paraíso na terra
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!
