“Paradise- seeing is believing, an absolute must....”
Reviewed 25 October 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This is a truly magical place - wonderful, quirky and utterly charming. "The house in the sky" is literally sat above the clouds. The sunsets from the roof terrace are spectacular. A great place to sit with a glass of vino after a day of walking in the hills! These amazing trails start right outside the front door.
Hilary (the owner), is the perfect host. She is always on hand if needed, but never intruded into the peace and tranquilly of my fabulous holiday.
Looking forward to coming back next year.

“Mountain air, good food, absolute contentment”

Take your walking boots and explore the beautiful mountain scenery. The views are breathtaking and exhilarating, but at the end of the day you can sleep with peace in your heart

“fabulous!”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

this place has breathtaking views from the rooftop terrace. In the morning s the clouds come down and surround you like cotton wall and then afterwards a kaliedescope of colour emerges. In the evening you are treated to the most wondrous sunsets.. makes you feel like you are in heaven!

The owner is always on hand to give you advice and help and her welcome pack is full of goodies like homemade jam and bread and all the basics and she even bakes a lemon cake which is absolutley delicious. She has a little dog too who also welcomes you with a very waggy tail!! The surrounding area is also beautiful and lots to do and see. if you are a walker there are walks if you are a painter it is a place to inspire you... I and my mate we loved this place accomodation is warm and comfy a real home from home feel ... Definitely worth the visit and stay and we will be returning again next year!

“Out of this world- sublime place”
Reviewed 8 October 2013 for a stay in May 2012

Had a fabulous holiday with friends in an incredible setting. Hilary's attention to detail is second to none. The right balance of helpful advice and information and just being left to chill and relax. save yourself the trouble of cooking and take advantage of home cooked meals, plenty to choose from. Outstanding views from the terrace and a fab setting. Don't be put off by the narrow roads through the villages on approach. We got a nine seater people carrier up there! Great place to walk, cycle. Excellent places to visit nearby, Coimbra for example.
