A unique Swiss-like experience in the middle of Portugal! After the rush of Porto, we really enjoyed the peace and quiet of the mountains at this fabulous family-run hotel. The restaurant menu was a nice change after having had to do with tapas for two weeks, with a very good vegetarian platter for a change. Also try the big humps of local Serra cheese which they serve. Excellent! The local cheese-maker passing the hotel with his herd of goats made us thought we were in the Alps! After watching the Portugal against Greece match in the 2012 Soccer Euro Cup with Rafael and his family, my husband is now an equally passionate supporter of Portugal... obviously only until they meet up with Bafana Bafana!. Next time we hope to stay longer, to explore the beautiful surroundings a bit more. Wish we could retire here. Stephan, Bruce, Christa & Madelaine - South Africa
