A Week in a Portuguese Village (translated by google translate)


A week in the village: this is the proposal that you drive here. Wake up at bedtime, five days filled with activities that will also prove that life flourishes in the field of opportunities, is also a way to transmit a set of practices. In between, meals are shared across a spirit of conviviality and a series of evening activities ranging from traditional tales to other arts of the fireplace ….
Outsiders do not get even the suberbas landscapes that serve as motto for many of the proposals that you drive here.

Where – Village Chao Sobral, a small village nestled between 600 and 700 meters in the Serra do Goshawk, which overlooks the Serra da Estrela and Serra do Caramulo. Dista 16 kms from the historic village of Piódão, 11 kms from Mount Colcurinho (viewpoint and place of pilgrimage to 1242 meters altitude), 3 kms of the remarkable Sanctuary of Our Lady of Prayer, and 10 kms of the Village Dec.
