Amazing Natural Park area with protected species (eagles, vultures, foxes and other wildlife).

Ancient roman lost city of Ammaia (5 minutes driving).

Marvão Castle and village (10 minutes driving).

River Sever with natural and artificial pools.

Unique landscapes.

Similar to Tuscany (according to our Guests :) )

Nice place to make a pause from the city, watch an incredible sky at night, have some nice rest and sun, enjoy nature and quietness and eat a lot of unforgettable and affordable real quality food.
