OUR (REMOTE) LOCATION
The farm is situated in, what I call, a pristine, rugged paradise! At 865 meters, you get to enjoy an all day long beautifull view and all the calmness and serenity you need.
However, this altitude also implies that the nearest town/shops are located at 8 kms, that all the social life is limited to the simple (yet everso kind) village bars (nearest at 4,5km), and that it can get foggy, windy and cold in the winter. (The landscape however, turns into a mysterious spooky fairy tale land) It’s amazing!! But only for those accepting and apreciating the farms unique location.
THINGS YOU MAY ENJOY DOING DURING YOUR TIME OFF
This all depends on whether or not you came with your own transport.
The little village of Juguelhe only has 15 inhabitants…you can imagine public transport isn’t all that present. This means that, should you want to visit one of the lovely towns or cities such as braga, amarante, barcelos, vila real, porto, guimaraes, that you will need an entire day to travel, visit and enjoy.
For those loving nature, old granite villages, old customs, mountains, simple life, making new friends etc., they will be just fine here! Loads of hiking trails, existing and new ones to be discovered, it’s also a paradise for horseback riders, mountainbikers, climbers, outdoor sport lovers, 4×4 drivers.
If you’re a kind and experienced horse rider and you get along with our Peruvian Paso horse, feel free to take him on a mountain adventure.
And anyone who can handle the donkeys and is kind to them, can take them on a walk.
