                                                                  • Casa Sulo and Alombada provide a wonderful and safe environment for children of all ages. Guests are encouraged to pick the fresh oranges, lemons and other fruit, as well as the salad and vegetables from our extensive vegetable patch and gardens. For the more energetic, there are plenty of woodland walks and a visit to our local Rio Alombada with a picnic is a must for the whole family to play 'Swallows and Amazons'.

                                                                    1 Reviews

                                                                    Latest reviews

                                                                    Perfect

                                                                    Graeme C.

                                                                    I say "perfect". It certainly was for us. We were looking for peace and tranquillity, and we found it. This is not a place to stay if you're looking for nightclubs, beach bars or supermarkets on your doorstep. In fact, the doorstep is in a village on the top of a mountain. You need to drive down the mountain to find a shop. But that means that if you want a quiet time on the patio or in the pool, you can have it without interruption.

                                                                    One of our favourite aspects of this holiday was being able to relax in the pool surrounded by amazing views of the surrounding mountains and countryside - and barely any background noise.

                                                                    The accommodation itself is comfortable, with enough room for most sizes of party - the adjoining chalet can be opened up to form one large one. I have experienced it in both formats.

                                                                    There are some excellent walks on the mountain, if you don't want to stray far, but if you want to explore the area there are a range of different activities including the beach on the Costa Nova - certainly amongst the best I've experienced - and Aveiro, a nearby town which is well worth a visit.

                                                                    Ken and Sue are very welcoming and helpful. They encourage you to sample the fruits (and veg) of their own garden, and if you don't want to go to the trouble of going out for a meal or making one yourself, even provide a "take away" service - which we have taken advantage of and thoroughly enjoyed.

                                                                    I have stayed here three times now, and look forward to visiting again.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    Many thanks for your kind words. We remember your visits and we too enjoyed yours and your party's company. With your review it is obvious that you have taken on the whole ethos of Casa Sulo, "peace, tranquility but within easy reach of the main towns and beaches". We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your visits and we look forward to welcoming you back one year - possibly for the grape picking and wine treading in September/October

                                                                    Location

                                                                    Municipality of Águeda, Portugal

                                                                    A car is essential for your stay. Albergaria-a-Velha is our closest town (10 minutes drive away) with several good cafés en route. It has plenty of first class traditional restaurants at affordable prices: a two course meal for two with wine will normally be under €20, or a local dish of the day, including wine and coffee, around €7 per head. There is plenty to do and see throughout the region with many local markets to visit, full of atmosphere and fresh produce. The city of Aveiro, known as the “Venice of Portugal,” boasts every modern amenity but still retains its old charm. Take a boat trip in the traditional brightly painted moliceiros, relax and watch the world go by or wander through the myriad of narrow cobbled streets bustling with life. The Costa Nova and Barra has miles of beautiful unspoilt golden sandy beaches waiting to be discovered – here you can participate in all types of water sports. Porto and Coimbra are within a 45 minute drive.
