Geres is one of the most natural environments in Portugal and Pousada do Geres is a very good place to stay while visiting the region.
It has an amazing view over the valley, whilst not being on the "confusion" of Geres (ok, confusion and Geres in the same sentence is a bit exaggerated).
The place is a bit old-fashioned, but it's worth cause of the location, service and coziness of the whole experience.

Room Tip: always choose the lake-view ones: price diff is worth!

Amazing hotel, great staff and top of all is the view of the amazing lake.

One slight issue is the Wi-Fi is not available in rooms. Overall excellent location and lovely hospitality. Will surely return soon for a personal trip with wife.

The Pousada ist wonderful located, the view ist breathtaking and the nearer surrounding perfect to discover the nature (the lake, the hills, the national park) and for sports (hiking, mountainbiking...). The Pousada itself has so much character. The rooms are beautiful, the lounge invites for a cozy get together, the meals in the restaurant are delicious. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I felt very comfortable.

I've spent my honeymoon 25 years ago in this Pousada, and every time I go back I find new details that enchant me. Also something that never changes and still marvels me every time, the beautiful view over the Caniçada Dam while savouring a drink sitting outside.
