This 4 night holiday gives you the ideal opportunity to explore a region that is completely unspoilt – it is not the easiest place to get to but your efforts will be well rewarded with some of the best walking in Portugal. Your base is a beautifully restored country house located in the heart of the Park with heated swimming pool where you will be well taken care of; all you will need to do is concentrate on having a good time and enjoy the fabulous walks.
