Not your traditional Pousada..more like a Alpine style hotel. Room was modern,large, clean and comfortable and we could see clear across the valley. We had a very nice terrace and on our arrival we ate lunch outside.The breakfast buffet had a good variety of fruits, meats, buns, pastries, yogurt as well as eggs and very good bacon..The front reception was...

This was a 5 star experience in the middle of the mountains. The staff was so nice and polite, the food was incredible (although a bit expensive), the bedrooms were big and the beds were super comfortable and clean. The hotel is perfectly placed, as you easily get to the towns around and also get to enjoy a quiet place... More

Tucked away in the Geres National Park in northern Portugal this Pousada is a gem. Set on a hillside overlooking forests and lakes the views from balconies are magnificent. There is plenty to do in the area with many attractive villages as well as numerous walking routes through the park. Guides for these routes are available at local tourist offices.... More

The pousada is excellent situated to visit the National park and has a very nice view over it. The common areas are basic but cosy and so are the – very small - rooms. The air-conditioning didn’t work. The breakfast and dinner are nothing special but they have a nice wine list. Also remarkable is the excellent pool. In my... More

Pousadas used to have a reliably excellent reputation, but now that they've been privatised, it's hit and miss. This one, apart from the view, is one to miss. The bedroom smelled of damp mould -"from carpet cleaner" we were told but the carpets were all dirty and stained. The bathroom was poky with no functioning ventilation so our swimmers still... More

A charming hotel with a great view over the park and the river. The staff was very polite and gave us all the informations we needed. The beds were very comfortable and the room was clean and tidy. The best part is sitting outside enjoying all the green on the surrounding park.

First came here over 30 years ago and dined here regularly. Nostalgic trip to show my wife as we now live in the North of Portugal. Great food with very helpful service. The views are to die for!

This is a lovely building, almost feels like a ski chalet in its style. We stayed in two of the old rooms which are very authentic, extremely comfortable beds, if a little dark. The staff are all very welcoming but they do need to have someone to attend to the bar as we had to ask most days at reception... More

The Pousada is built to look like a typical mountain home. The view from the pousada is spectacular. The staff are very friendly and accommodating but too few to attend efficiently to the needs of the guests. The rooms are clean and comfy.
