Hotel situado na serra do Caramulo, que resulta da recuperação de um antigo sanatório. É um edifico algo austero, mas que resultou num excelente espaço de conforto para descansar e desfrutar as magníficas paisagens da serra do Caramulo.
Os quartos são grandes e confortáveis, com varanda para a vista fabulosa da serra.
O pequeno almoço é servido em buffet, com uma variedade e qualidade que não desaponta. O
restaurante do hotel também tem um serviço excelente, com comida muito bem confeccionada.
Relativamente a actividades, o hotel dispõe de ginásio, piscina interior aquecida, piscina exterior e SPA. Do SPA recomendo que aproveite a piscina activa que fica num espaço privilegiado do hotel, donde se pode avistar uma paisagem panorâmica para a serra, é mesmo um excelente momento de relax.

We had wild pork with beans and rice, pork belly (nowhere near as fatty as we would make it), vegetables, and another bean ...
... the franchesina... Which is like a slaughtered menagerie on a plate in between 2 slices of bread covered in cheese , with a chickens period (egg) on top, for good luck?... See picture. Fortunately not all Portugese food is as assaulting to the vegetarian plight and we've has some amazing food namely from our favourite family restaurant Papavinhos. Papavinhos we discovered by chance after escaping being chased ...
After breakfast I take a walk down to see the archway we had had to negotiate yesterday in the car. I also climb up on to the city wall. No handrails or safety barriers. Its great. We check out. The road out of the walled village isn't as bad as the way in. The main difficulty is getting the throngs of tourists to get out of the way so we can get past. Its motorway all the way to our next stop, Coimbra. We are staying at ...
... it on a viaduct. We get good views of the vine terraces lining the banks. We arrive in Viseu and park up to have a look round and something to eat before checking in. We have a frustrating encounter with a parking ticket machine which is not working but eventually find another one. Its sunny now and hot but nothing like yesterday - maybe 28 degrees. There isn't ...
