Address: Casa cor de Roza, Caracol, Vila Nova do Ceira, 3330-413, Portugal

Activities/Attractions: The valley and the surrounding hills and mountains are some of the loveliest and most striking in Central Portugal. Much of the land is heavily wooded, only the flatter valley floors being cultivated on a modest and sympathetic scale. The area is dotted with tiny villages and a few more substantial towns.

Local people are incredibly friendly and helpful, particularly if you can learn to use a few Portuguese words. The climate is warm and sunny from late March to early November (temperatures peak around 37C in August), with enough rain in the winter to keep the vegetation green throughout the year.
