Pousada do Lago is set around a lake with ducks and their chicks swimming around.

The property has a small lake with bungalows and buildings all around. Beautiful property and really comfortable rooms! The breakfast is very nice with fresh made breads and cakes. The ducks on the property make it a beautiful property however at times the noises from the ducks, birds and other beautiful wildlife made it difficult for me to sleep. (I... More

Great location (short walking distance to Santa's Village), very good breakfast, friendly staff, very comfortable rooms (the chalets can be a little small, but the apartments are huge and have bigger beds). Also the apartments have a fireplace for the cold night; lumber is available at low extra cost.
