Macedo de Cavaleiros, Portugal124 contributions33 helpful votes
The best discovery of this tour by our beautiful country. Cantinho da Gândara is a small oasis near Arcos de Valedevez which is another paradise in Portugal. We stayed in the hut because it is something unique / different and I can only say that whoever designed it knows what it does, because it has everything, 2 bedrooms, living room, full kitchen, full wc and a view over the fabulous mountain range, in addition to a small private pool, a support shed with an extra fridge and grill for the barbecues we made to dinner at the outdoor table with a pergula and a great view. D. Glória is very kind and helpful and every single day leaves fresh bread/croissants and regional sweets in a basket for our breakfast. It is about 10 minutes away from Arcos that is always worth the visit and is increasingly beautiful and has a fantastic river beach. It is about 20m from Porta do Mezio and about 25m from Sistelo and its walkways (must visit). Sistelo is indeed very beautiful, has some fabulous landscapes, where we can find small paradises and be completely involved by nature to the sound of waterfalls and the best, alone! Along the way we also find the cachena cows walking in the middle of the road... where we really have to swerve because they are not even there for those who pass 😃 Between Arcos de Valdevez, Ponte da Barca, Ponte de Lima, Viana do Castelo... it would take many more days to enjoy and see everything. About 10m walk from the farm we have the Vez River with a diving area next to a small waterfall and access to Ecovia that has about 30km and is excellent for hiking, running, cycling. For those who like meat, I recommend trying the Cachena meat at the restaurant Lagar or visit the Bar do Rio which has a small river beach. We'll come back because to enjoy everything we need at least a week.

Uma excelente opção, para quem procure sossego e tranquilidade. Muito próximo da ECOVIA, que proporciona vistas magníficas e praias fluviais praticamente desertas.Simpatia, qualidade e vontade e bem servir é o que encontra quando conhece a D. Glória, a proprietária. As casas são elegantes, funcionais e com bom gosto nota-se o toque de arquiteto. experiência a repetir.
