La maison du bonheur

  • 5 of 5

Pala Luar est vraiment la maison de vacances idéales, surtout pour une grande famille.

Avec ses deux maisons séparées, elle offre l'intimité nécessaire à de belles vacances.

Et que dire des prestations ? magnifiques et conformes à la description du site web.

Les maisons sont tellement agréables qu'on s'y sent tout de suite chez soi. Au point que nous n'avons pas trop visité la région (que nous connaissions déjà) tellement on était bien dans la maison et sa grande piscine (12x5).

Nichées dans cet ilôt de verdure surplombant le rio Cavado, elles offrent une fraîcheur idéale pour supporter la chaleur.

Les 15 jours de vacances ont été trop court. on en redemande et on vous la conseille fortement

Merci à Joao et isabel pour l'accueil, et à M. Viera pour son miel !

The house is located near the only national park in Portugal - the Peneda-Gerês. A five minutes walk it´s Cávado river and access to beaches. The house overlook the river and is surrounded by a dense and diverse forest comprised mostly of chestnut, oak, ash, walnut, etc.. Near the House Pala Luar (10 minutes by car) you will find a playground with Marina, where you can enjoy various activities in the river and find many typical restaurants. In Peneda-Geres National Park you can do some of the recommended tracks and know more about one of the largest reserves of fauna and flora of Portugal.
