Centred at the heart of the “Serra da Lousã” our cottage could not be located in a better place for hiking enthusiasts. Just at our doorstep there are countless forest trails leading into the valley and ultimately crossing our local river “Ribeira de Alge”. To our south The Great Route of the Zêzere offers amazing trails along Portugal’s longest inborn river, carved in between the mountains and two water dams there is over 100km of trails to be explored in our vicinity. To our North the altitude steadily rises through Castanheira da Pera towards Lousã offering several mountain hikes with scenic views that will surely take your breath away. Both areas are completely spoiled for choice in regards to river beaches and historical schist villages, in which case hikes can be combined with either or both to make for an idyllic day spent in natural surroundings.
