About this location
Northern Portugal region
The Beiras and Silver Coast are our areas of Portugal, with the Costa Verde just north of us, so you can explore this whole region from Casa Sulo. It offers spectacular mountain scenery, miles of golden sandy beaches, market towns, castles, famous port wine, Coimbra which boasts one of the oldest universities in Europe. The Beiras region is well known for its distinctive Bairrada wines and these can be sampled at most of the vineyards in the region.
A car is essential for your stay here at Casa Sulo, although Albergaria-a-Velha is less than 10 minutes drive away with several good cafes en route. There are plenty of first class traditional restaurants at affordable prices; a prato do dia normally includes soup, bread, main course, dessert, wine and coffee at around 7 euros per person.
There is plenty to do and see throughout the region with many local markets to visit, full of atmosphere and fresh produce. The city of Aveiro, known as "The Venice of Portugal" boasts every modern amenity but still retains its old charm. Take a boat trip in the traditional brightly painted moliceiros, relax and watch the world go by or wander through the myriad of narrow, cobbled streets, bustling with life. The Costa Nova and Barra host miles of beautiful unspoilt golden sandy beaches waiting to be discovered - here you can participate in all types of water sports.
If you enjoy driving and finding, Porto is a wonderful day trip, taking in the River Douro and port wine lodges. Or take the back roads over the mountains to Viseu and Coimbra. Experience the spa towns of Luso and S. Pedro do Sul, and the magnificent forest of Bucaco with its spectacular hunting lodge hotel.
Fish for bream, trout and barbel on the river Vouga, or take a canoe down the river Mondego from Penacova to Coimbra.
For golfers, there is an 18 hold golf course at Montebelo Golf and Leisure Club, as well as a nine hole course at Curia. There are also local horse riding schools for those who enjoy riding. Or, more obviously, spend quality relaxing time at Casa Sulo by the pool, unwinding while time drifts by. We are off the beaten track and have a peaceful, quite and safe environment.

"Portugal's hidden gem"
We stayed with Ken and Sue during the end of June, beginning of July of 2014. We were the first Canuck (Canadian) guests they have had. We had quite the adventure finding the place, (to our surprise, … More
It was a delight for us to welcome our first Canadian visitors and we're so pleased that you found your "neighbours" equally good fun and good company. We remember the synchronised swimming and it almost tempted Ken to take up swimming as an exercise - but only almost! We were pleased when you arrived to discover that our directions were better than your satnav. Thank you for your kind review and we look forward to maybe welcoming you back to Casa Sulo sometime in the future.
Best regards, Ken and Sue

Many thanks for your kind thoughts and words. We too enjoyed sharing the heavens and shooting stars with you that week - they were quite spectacular. Your children obviously enjoyed the pool and the other first was your daughter learning to swim unaided.

Thank you Cassie and Chris. We too enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your kind review it is always good to know that our visitors enjoyed Casa Sulo.

Thank you for telling us of your experience at Casa Sulo. It means a lot to us to know that our efforts to ensure our guests are happy is recognised. The fresh bread on arrival is a bit of a hit and miss because we try to time it so that it's still hot when people arrive but sometimes flights are delayed. it's something we do to make their arrival special. Once again thank you for your review.

I say "perfect". It certainly was for us. We were looking for peace and tranquillity, and we found it. This is not a place to stay if you're looking for nightclubs, beach bars or superm… More
