A scenic area of rugged granite mountains, rivers, the Lindoso damned lake, pine forests, old-world villages. An authentic rural highland area, which in many ways belongs to a medieval era: note the old granite houses and country traditions.

Pursuits at the property

A highlight of Peneda-Gerês national park is the hiking. You could spend a lifetime exploring the area, always finding new trails and views. Gentle strolls through villages and fields are possible, as well all-day hikes high up in the mountains, where you'll see no others. Mountain-biking is also top-class and for those on road bikes, there are plenty of hills to climb up. Fishing on the river and lake. All of these, plus kayaking, canyoning, horse-riding, paintball, tree canopy rides, rock climbing can be arranged with a local adventure sports specialist. Super in the summer, but also come in spring and early summer for wild-flowers, autumn for the golden colours, winter for the mountain feel, walks, sitting by the fireplace.
