Reborn from the ruins 30 years ago, the house is the result of the passion for history and conservation of the values of Minho region.

The great breakfast balcony, common area to all the apartments, invites to a perfect start day, with panoramic views over the village.

Upon arrival, and after a visit to the house surroundings, the guests are greeted with a welcome drink and traditional pastries in the room of the old furnaces, the reception of the house.

In addition to all the amenities of the apartments, guests can also make use of outer space, where they can find a heated pool and a barbecue area with wood oven. In the gardens, the pleasant tables in stone promise to be the perfect retreat of summer afternoons, along with a little playground. There is also free wireless network throughout the property.

Fim-de-semana maravilhoso na Casa da Pousada

  • 5 of 5

Foi um fim-de-semana muito agradável na Casa da Pousada, fomos muito bem recebidos, ficamos numa kitchenette que numa palavra definiria como perfeita, muito asseada e airosa, um espaço muito agradável de se estar.

O ambiente exterior é muito bonito, o jardim é magnífico e tem bancos e mesas de pedra o que nos permitiu usufruir de um jantar romântico num ambiente maravilhoso.

Os donos da casa são muito simpáticos, acolhedores e manifestaram-se sempre disponíveis para o que precisássemos.

Gostamos de tudo, mas particularmente gostamos da zona da piscina, tem uma exposição solar excelente, desde manhã até à noite, e a água é aquecida, o que nos proporcionou um prazer ainda maior deste espaço.

Foi um fim-de-semana 5 estrelas!

Vou aconselhar a amigos e familiares a visita desta casa e na minha próxima visita, quero ir por mais tempo para poder usufruir melhor deste espaço.

Agradecimentos aos proprietários deste espaço.
