An excellent stay. Daniel the host is charming. The area is very interesting and Marvao is not to be missed. Do not miss also the bar/restaurant that I understand opened about 1 year ago down the hill and a short stroll away. The old town of Galegos is also fantastic. In addition, if you like cats, this is the place for you.
