Tasteful decorated, provide common areas very well equipped. Breakfast is sublime. Very good for a relaxing escape. People are very nice. We had the opportunity to participate in a game card championship - Sueca - occoring in the village. 5 stars :-)

We stayed just one night in Retiro da Avó Lídia, but it was more than enough to recognize the qualities that make this such a highly rated gem. Located in a valley in between the mountains, this cozy 4 bedroom house, tastefully restored with clear reverence for its past, traditions and ancestry is not by any means large or ostentatious, but equiped with both the conforts of the modern age as well as time-honored cuisine, with locally sourced ingredients including jams, teas and in our opinion, the star of the show, the Açorda de Peixe, served inside hollowed bread.

Retiro da avó Lídia is special. The two grand-daughters of "avó Lídia (grandmother Lydia)" really made a good job on the recovery of the house. Located in a very relaxing place, it's wonderful for recovering the vitality.

Recommended for young couples with children and older couples looking for a nice place to relax.

Room Tip: The "charme" rooms are larger and you get a very good value for money.
