We spent the most memorable period at Casa do Castelo Novo during our two-week family trip. The scenery and the village are absolutely breathtaking and we'd like to praise our hostess, Alice. She's thoughtful and has plenty of suggestions regarding any questions.
We arrived with a long list of attractions we wanted to visit, especially the surrounding historical villages and the Serra da Estrela park. With her help we managed to see most of them and also got to authentic places we'd never even heard of.
With two parents and two students we really appreciated the freedom that came with the accomodation. We slept in a comfortable building in the garden with our own dining area. The breakfast was always substantial and delicious, containing something to suprise us each day.
We enjoyed every minute of our stay and couldn't recommend more this amazing house and hostess.
