Casa Sulo's Portuguese Chalet is one of a pair of apartments, each sleeping 5 - 6 in 2 en-suite bedrooms. Open the insulated connecting door in the kitchen/living area, and larger parties enjoy an extensive 4 bedroom private villa. Booking both apartments for a week or more enjoys a 10% - 15% discount.
An idyllic location, set at the end of a small safe rural village. With undisturbed views across the Caramulo Mountains full of fragrant eucalyptus trees. Everyone remarks on how quiet it is here.

The space
Our fully fitted kitchen includes a fridge/freezer, cooker, microwave and washing machine. For your convenience, you'll find a few items such as tea, coffee, sugar, washing up liquid, cooking oils. In addition to salt and pepper, there are a few seasonings and bay leaves.

We adopt an honesty policy, meaning, if an item runs out during your stay, for the benefit of future guests, just replace it with a similar item.

We hope you enjoy the free starter pack we've provided for your arrival. This will usually include milk, rolls/bread, 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!

Shops are nearby, but we do have available a few items for sale (you'll find details in the apartment). For instance, the Alombada honey with its fresh taste of eucalyptus is the perfect accompaniment for your breakfast. Drizzle it over your fresh fruit and yoghurt. Please help yourself to some oranges and lemons you'll find growing in the gardens.

Each apartment has its own gas barbecue (gas included). Outdoor dining of an evening is very pleasurable. During the day if it gets too hot, just extend the electric sunshade!

When you are not out visiting the many attractions around us, there are lots of things you can do around your apartment. For the energetic, there is swimming and plenty of paths to walk. Please make use of the many indoor and outdoor games provided. For instance, all the family will enjoy the boules piste.

Maybe you like to swim, so come and enjoy the 10m x 5m saltwater swimming pool, although it is not heated, the sliding canopy makes it pleasurable for a lot of the year. We have also provided plenty of pool toys.
There is satellite television, so tune into the extensive TV, radio and music channels.

Free wifi available via our router.
Free car parking available on site.

Guest access
The gardens are very extensive, sloping away to the front, side and back of the apartment. Please feel free to pick some oranges and lemons that you can see growing.

There are many outdoor games to enjoy playing and a boules piste just up the slope.

From our property, there are many trails to walk amongst the trees that cover the mountains. Feeling energetic, why not walk to the river beach or have a picnic at the local leisure park.

Location

Aveiro, Portugal

Albergaria-a-Velha is our closest town (10 minutes drive away) with good cafés and traditional restaurants at affordable prices. It also has banks, ATMs and a variety of shops. Our 2 main supermarkets are here, Pingo Doce and Continente.

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.
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

Or just spend quality time at Casa Sulo by the pool unwinding while time drifts by.

Hi, we are Karen and Nuno an English and Portuguese couple who are managing the apartments for our neighbours Ken and Sue. They are taking a well-earned break from the day to day running after 18 years of welcoming guests to their property. Living next door we are well placed to meet, greet and look after you. When you come we are sure you will fall in love with Alombada and enjoy it as much as we do.
