The accommodation consists of a self-contained unit within a cottage of 400 m2 in a private property of 10.000m2, guaranteeing peace and quiet for our guests in addition to all the facilities for an excellent stay. There is a 60m2 private pool set in extensive gardens and the house is equipped with central heating, cable TV and Wi-FI. The property lies next to the River Veade and just 500 metres away from the viaduct of the disused Tamega railway wich has recently been converted into a beautiful 40 Km cycle-path. This path linking Amarant to Arco de Baulhe, is excellent for walking or cycling and has great views over the Tamega valley. The River Tamega is only a 5-minute drive away, as the towns of Mondim and Celorico de Basto, so you can find authentic shopping, entertainment and leisure very close to hand. Leisure activities include trekking, walking, cycling, canoeing and paragliding. Several routes for tourists have been created in the region, including the 'Romanesque Rout' the 'Green Wine Rout' and the 'Viewpoints Route'. There are also several way-marked walks, several of which incorporate pilgrim paths of the Santiago Way. But the principal cultural and historical attractions are undoubtedly the hill of Senhora da Graça, the Alvão Nature Park, the Castle of Arnoia, the Refojos Convent, the Camelia gardens and various Manor houses. During the summer the region turns festive with a host of local festivals and traditional celebrations which are characteristics of Northern Portugal and are almost weekly. Come and experience a few days of rural peace and quiet. A great welcome awaits you! Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 25876/ALMore
