• Almost at the end of the Avenida Luisa Tody, we will see on our right a pannel indicating CASTELO-POUSADA, we will follow it towards the Rua Marqués da Costa, a few meters away we find another pannel indicating CASTELO-POUSADA towards the left, and we will follow it getting into the Rua de Sao Filipe.
• Continue uphill by the Rua de Sao Filipe, that becomes the Estrada do Forte de Sao Filipe, until we get to the fork in front of the CASTELO-POUSADA's main entrance. There we will find the first Moinho do Marco pannel, indicating towards the blacktop road on the right. Follow that road. You will find another pannel when it is necessary to turn, otherwise keep going.
When the blacktop road ends, you will see on your left handside the Moinho do Forte, then you may turn right following the portuguese stone road.

About the Host, Guadalupe Ramos -
Feliz esposa y madre de 3 hijos menores de 10 años que son lo mejor de nuestra vida.
Nacida en España, casada con un maravilloso francés y viviendo en Setúbal hace años...
No podría vivir sin sol, no podría sin las pequeñas cosas del día a día, no podría vivir si no existieram esas comidas que terminan con una eterna sobremesa compartida con amigos y buena conversación, si no se hubiera inventado el vino creo que yo por lo menos, lo hubiera intentado, y por supuesto mi familia... ¡eso sí que me da vida!
Como anfitriona intento que nuestros huéspedes se sientan cómodos, libres, bien acogidos, independientes y generar la suficiente confianza como para que puedan acercarse a mi puerta diciendo ... "Guadalupe, ¿me darías un diente de ajo, por favor?" ¡por supuestooooo! :)
