Francisco Sá Carneiro no Porto
Wooden house and old stone typical of the region, inserted in an area of about 30. 000 m2 of land with front to Albufeira Caniçada. All rooms of the house overlook the Reservoir and open onto a balcony that surrounds the entire home, allowing permanent contact with all of nature and magnificent scenery. All around there are no other houses, thereby allowing a great seclusion and privacy, only dense vegetation that conveys an immense serenity. Within the property there are fruit trees and a small garden where you can go get some seasonal vegetables for immediate consumption, numerous paths that allow nice solitary walks and streams with small waterfalls, which come together in one that flows into Albufeira.
Beyond the pool, terraces also integrated into the Reservoir can be used for bathing, since its waters are of extreme clarity. Not far away, can be rented boats, canoes, jet skis for touring or for water sports.
In the surrounding mountains there are numerous walks clearly marked and signposted, some of them inspired by the paths taken by the famous writer Miguel Torga that spent their holidays here and whose silence inspired him for his writing and poetry.
