Early summer holiday

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time staying in this recently renovated stone cottage in Sobreira, near Pedrogao Grande. Very much enjoyed the hospitable people, tremendous mountains and gorges with river beaches. The food and drink everywhere was superb and great value. All in all combined with temperatures in the mid 20-30oc what is there not to like.

very nice cottage+ lots of hiking possibilities

  • 4 of 5

Last summer we spent two weeks at the cottage. Our idea was to find somewhere far away from noisy and stressing places, with few people, but also well connected to scape to the closest beach and some cities for sight seeing. And we reallywere lucky to find it. The four of us enjoyed it, also Argos, our golden Retriever dog, who even made some friends with neighbouring dog. Our kids really enjoyed exploring the town and the sorrounding tracks, inclusing a long hike we did to the river. The house offers you a quite confortably stay, with breakfast and BBQ in the patio. The housman and his wife were always ready to help for anythng we would need. they also recommended us not to miss some interesting visits. Definately, if you are looking for a country place, sorrounded by nature, lots of river beaches. quiet and with beautiful night skies because of no light pollution, this is a real good choice.
