About the property

Built and registered in 1947, by Antonio Galvao, where he lived with his wife children and grandchildren. Restored (according to Ordinance No. 937/2008) for tourist purposes and means of dissemination of the whole valley of Alvôco area. Situated in the Serra da Estrela Natural Park on the right bank of the river Alvôco, its waters are pure and crystalline, tempt the palate of those who pass by here, on vacation or simple getaway weekend. Enjoy climbing the tower, the highest point of continental Portugal or visit the tourist village of Piodão.

Schönes sauberes Haus.

Freundliche hilfsbereite Vermieter.

Die Umgebung ist traumhaft, das Haus sehr ruhig gelegen.

Sehr gut für Alle die eine Auszeit brauchen und oder wandern möchten.

Fantástico

  • 5 of 5

A casa estava fantástica, recomendo vivamente, fica no meio de uma aldeia onde o acesso é através de curva e contra curva, mas em 25min se chega a torre.

Tudo muito limpo e aconchegado. Fomos muiyo bem recebidos.

Certamente iremos repetir

Sossego

  • 4 of 5

A casa é limpa, confortável e tem tudo o que é necessário para uma estadia de vários dias em "self-catering". A Aldeia é fantástica e muito sossegada. O unico problema é que a casa não é acessivel de carro (tem de se andar um pouco desde a entrada da aldeia) e está no cimo de uma escadaria o que para uma familia com uma criança pequena dificulta um pouco as coisas.
