Peneda-Geres is the only National Park in existence in Portugal. The mountainous protected area is located in the north part of Portugal and it is a transboundary protected area with Xures Nature Park, Spain. Founded in 1971, it covers an area of 72,000 hectares and has an extraordinary diversity of climate, environments and scenery. Having once been the home of the brown bear and the mountain goat, Peneda-Geres is today one of the last refuges of the great predators, such as the wolf and the royal eagle. The magnificent Peneda-Geres National Park is a wild and dramatic place consisting of two main mountain ranges Peneda and Geres with rural villages scattered around. An important feature of the landscape is the constant presence of water because of proximity Atlantic Ocean. Brooks and waterfalls are common at every mountain slope and the park is crossed by several rivers. The PGNP is situated in a rough mountain region usually above 700 metres high, going over 1500 metres high in Nevosa (Serra do Geres). The predominance of granite rocks accounts for both the rough relief and the bare character of the hills, as seen in the cliffs, troughs, blocks and ball shaped granite rocks. Whether you want to relax in the clean mountain air, take in the wide range of flora and fauna or take part in extreme activities, Peneda-Geres National Park is an amazing place to visit.

Terrible 3* Hotel, I've never paid so much for such a terrible accomodation, cleaning conditions are disgusting, it does not even reflect a developed European country, for sure inspection does not come to such remote place to evaluate the conditions of this hotel. Dust on the

This Hotel is located in such a nice place and it is a pitty. It needs urgent renovation!! Our room was smelly (mold smell) and we had to open the windows constantly. The bed was not confortable at all and general furniture needs renovation. Besides that, breakfast was so weak!

Agradecemos a crítica e atenção sempre para nós construtivas. De facto a quando da estadia,nada nos foi chamado á atenção pois teríamos imediata intervenção para qualquer inesperada situação. Somos um Hotel de montanha e com base nesse conceito,procuramos servir sempre pelo melhor. Assentamos também num princípio relacionado entre a qualidade e o preço que pretendemos manter. Somos todavia a agradecer as observações sendo que o corrigível assim será.
