This lovely pousada overlooks a deep valley with a beautiful river / lake - fabulous countryside - the pousada is attractive, clean and nicely appointed.
The staff are very friendly and the food in the restaurant is very good indeed, and not over-priced.
Make sure you book a room which has a verrandah or balcony.
The pousada is quite difficult to find - my state-of-the-art gps kept taking us to a certain hamlet on the mainroad leading north away from the lake, but no sign of the pousada - it is actually located further on north up the hill on the left about 2 miles away from where the gps says it is.
It is an enchanting place to stay.
