Situated on a sunny hill surrounded by lush mountains and a valley, Quinta (farm) da Gândara is a peaceful and quiet place for having relaxing vacations.
The house is the result of the reconstruction of an 18th century building with rectangular windows, stone side seats, a chapel with an oratory of carved granite and an old wine cellar remodeled into a games room.
Approved by Turismo de Portugal, I.P. with the registry number: 1187.
The area of the Gândara is ample, with fields with diverse types of trees, areas for picnic and for resting.
The rooms and common rooms have a traditional look, however they also have all the comfort of a modern space.
A calm and relaxing environment is what you will find in the village of Silva Escura.
A few minutes away there is a fabulous natural waterfall in the middle of the forest. It is the ideal place for hot days where a cool water swim is possible in the small lake underneath. There are bathrooms, areas for picnic and it is relatively easy to access this place named by the locals as Cabreia.
The gastronomy of the region is famous: lamprey, roast veal and sweet regional desserts.
There is a river beach in Sever do Vouga, 20 minutes away from Silva Escura (driving time), where swimming and canoeing is allowed.
