Day 6 - The national park Peneda Geres should not be missed even at a glance.
Pousada do Geres is strategically located, gave us the feeling, that it has its special character perfectly blending with the countryside scenery. When we were at the reception, i can feel this special character of the hotel. It could be a former historical building as i gathered, transformed into something that gives the air of luxury and comfort to the clients.
We stayed overnight. The room was spacious, clean and well furnished . There was a partial view seen from the room, so it urged us to hurry down and get started to explore. From the terrace downstairs the awesome scenery was overwhelming the blue sky and the mountain landscape gave a perfect setting.
By car we went close to the lake up to the mountain passing by the gate to the National Park. We went up more to get the birds eye view of the whole scenery from a different perspective. Awesome. A day was not enough to be here and commune with nature. We can not even make it halfway with our time left.
Were happy we came here, though this was already an expensive choice. No regret at all. Money is well spent. Breakfast in the morning was sumptuous at our own choice. Morning breeze from the valley was alluring. We have to content by not exploring the whole park. but happy with our stay. Time will come we will come back. Wonderful place. Great experience.
