Fresh air. Green landscapes. Rugged terrain. Genuine people. Tradition at the table.
An atmosphere to live intensely. Leave the commonplaces, flee to the mountains and live unrepeatable experiences. The Aldeias de Montanha (Mountain Villages) form a unique set of culture and nature, where the tangible heritage is perfectly integrated. Harmony dictates the pace of life.

Lapa dos Dinheiros river beach and the place of Senhora do Desterro.
