About the neighbourhood
Casa dos Galegos is set in a very special location, overlooking a valley surrounded by mountains. It is near and easy to find it but at the same time it feels surprisingly far from civilization. Near the ancient village of Galegos, which still preserves traces of its rich history in smuggling and trading, you can discover some of the most incredible walking routes of the Natural Park of Serra de São Mamede, with the exquisite 'flying castle' of Marvão always on sight. Or you can simply rest, enjoy the views and the quietness of nature, by the private pool or by the log fire.
