What a find! A delightful place to stay just a few kilometres outside Guimarães in northern Portugal. With only 10 chalets which were very spacious and well appointed, the service was really personal. It was also lovely and quiet too. There is a very good restaurant and a great Spa/Wellness Centre on site which included a gym and pool, and... More

Each of them has 2 bedrooms, being suitable for 4 persons. They have also a kitchnet in the room with a view to the fields. Very... More

This is a good hotel with relax and natural surrounding. Very silent and cosy. Rooms are large and you can stay up to four in some rooms. Good for family visit also. Prices are affordable and have a nice restaurant in the hotel. You can enjoy lunch and dinner.

We stayed here for 4 nights and were very comfortable. The apartment was spotlessly clean with maid service and clean towels every day. Certainly if you can look past the sports complex the views to the mountains are spectacular. Receptionist Joanna went out of her way to help us with maps, timetables and lots of useful information. All the staff... More

We spend there a weekend for the European Capital of Culture. It's not close to the city centre, however it's a very nice place to relax and enjoy the view. The apartments are made of recycled wood. Very good sleep quality. Breakfast is made in a typical house and the pool is great!

The first impression was indeed not positive at all. Instead of the nice green grass around the houses (as pictured in the web site) just dried out weeds and grass left overs. The houses (now grey instead of wooden brown) face a car parking with big waste containers that were completely over full. And the view is completed with the... More

The first impact isn't positive as you see the huge electric towers above the place. You can ear the noise of electricity cables above your head !! If you can get over this, and forget it you will enjoy it. The apartment lack of kitchen utilities but you can ask them at reception and they were able to hand us... More
