An amazing setting, near the highest part of Portugal - Torre with fresh bread every morning and lovely local foods. Surrounded by forest and gorgeous landscape. It is near many local river beaches, restaurants with traditional foods and locally resourced. Near Seia and the museu do Pão, and short drive away from Gouveia, Linhares, Folgosinho and the gorgeous river beach...

Very nice houses, in a beautiful little village, nice trekking paths around, very near Seia. A great place to stay and explore Serra da Estrela. The manager is a wonderful person, with some good stories and very good tips for exploring the surroundings. Highly recommended!

This is the real thing and for a couple of days you feel like you've always lived there. Like home, but on the mountain, halfway from the top and Seia. You should definitely try and find...
