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. 

Enjoy the private swimming pool in exclusive surroundings
(see Booking Information for details
).

The Chalet Apartments

The two chalet apartments each sleep up to five people

aptandpool

The two chalet apartments each sleep up to five people. An insulated connecting door between the two can be unlocked for larger parties or exclusivity, making a four bedroom private villa.

Each chalet apartment comprises one double and one twin bedroom, both with en-suite and shower, and a double sofa-bed in the lounge area. All bedding and towels are provided, except beach towels.

The fully fitted kitchen includes a fridge / freezer, cooker, microwave and washing machine. Cooler bags and ice blocks are provided for use during your stay. In each chalet apartment there are the usual consumables, for example tea, coffee, sauces, condiments, washing up liquid. We adopt an honesty policy – if an item runs out during your stay, just replace it with a similar product for the benefit of future visitors.

A free starter pack is provided on arrival for your convenience. This usually includes milk, rolls, cheese, eggs, fruit, etc., a bottle of white wine in the fridge and red on the table. We will also endeavour to fill the ice trays!

We also make a selection of jams and chutneys including fig and ginger jam, spicy apple pickle and mango chutney. Pure natural unsweetened yogourt and ice cream are also available, but we do need 24 hours notice for these products as, like the jams and chutneys, they are home-made from natural ingredients.  Alombada honey with a fresh taste of eucalyptus is the perfect accompaniment drizzled over your fresh fruit and yogurt breakfast.

For your entertainment a free-to-view UK satellite television is included for TV, radio and music programmes. Each apartment has a range of books and games. Free wifi is available via our router.

A gas barbecue is provided including gas - one per chalet apartment. The 10m x 5m salt water swimming pool is for the exclusive use of our visitors and a variety of pool games are provided.  There is a boules piste for all the family to enjoy. If you are going to the beach parasols and windbreaks are available.

The chalet apartments are non-smoking and no pets are allowed. for the comfort of future visitors. Central heating is available during the winter months.

Self catering breaks in beautiful surroundings

The peace and tranquillity that is found here will help you to relax and enjoy a perfect getaway from the rat-race. The knowledge that Ken and Sue have accumulated over their years in Portugal will help you to get the most out of your self-catering accommodation holiday. Graham, UK

SURROUNDING AREA

out and about around alombada

 

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.
