Welcome to Casa SuloSelf catering accommodation in the Beiras region of Portugal
Sue and Ken, authors of "The Eucalyptus Dance", welcome you to Casa Sulo in the Beiras region of Central Portugal.Casa Sulo is situated in the safe, idyllic, rural village of Alombada, surrounded by the refreshing fragrance of eucalyptus forests and with uninterrupted views across the mountains. It is, however, within easy reach of the main arterial north/south and east/west roads with Aveiro and the Costa Nova and Barra beaches nearby. The two self catering chalet apartments are equipped to a high standard, each sleeping up to five people; for larger families or groups they open up into a four bedroom villa.
A car is essential for your stay. Albergaria-a-Velha is our closest town (10 minutes drive away) with several good cafés en route. It has plenty of first class traditional restaurants at affordable prices: a two course meal for two with wine will normally be under €20, or a local dish of the day, including wine and coffee, around €6 per head.
There is plenty to do and see throughout the region with many local markets to visit, full of atmosphere and fresh produce.
The city of Aveiro, known as the “Venice of Portugal,” boasts every modern amenity but still retains its old charm. Take a boat trip in the traditional brightly painted moliceiros, relax and watch the world go by or wander through the myriad of narrow cobbled streets bustling with life. The Costa Nova and Barra boast miles of beautiful unspoilt golden sandy beaches waiting to be discovered – here you can participate in all types of water sports.
The beautiful historic city of Porto on the banks of the River Douro is less than 45 minutes away. Visit the world famous port wine cellars for a tasting followed by a boat trip along the river.
If you enjoy “driving and finding” take the back roads over the mountains to Viseu, experience the spa towns of Luso and S. Pedro do Sul, or explore the magnificent forest of Buçaco before visiting Coimbra, one of the oldest university cities in Europe.
There are too many wonderful experiences in the region to detail; fish for bream, trout and barbell on the rivers Vouga, Dão, or Paiva. If you enjoy adventure, take a canoe down the river Mondego from Penacova to Coimbra. Or just spend quality time at Casa Sulo by the pool unwinding while time drifts by. We are off the beaten track and safe.
Golfers: there is the challenging 18 hole course at the Montebelo Golf and Leisure Club, as well as a nine hole course at Curia, both within an easy drive.
