House and surroundings
Casa do Lago is a spacious modern bungalow, situated on a branch of the large reservoir of Caniçada. The bungalow is fitted with all modern conveniences, and the contemporary architecture, makes it a very pleasant spot to spend your holiday. Immediately adjacent to the kitchen is a partly roofed patio with a fixed barbecue, so you can truly enjoy the outdoors!
The sunny garden with some olive and fruit trees, borders directly on the lake where you can access the water; there is also the possibility for mooring canoes. From the bungalow and the swimming pool you have a beautiful and free view over the Lake.
The white part (the top floor), visible above the bungalow is not rented or otherwise used. The owner has this in use as storage space.
At the reservoir (about 700 hectares) are ample opportunities for water sports. You can hire canoes, jet ski’s, pedaloes or learn how to water ski.
The lake is also the southern border of the national park Peneda-Gerês. In the spa village of Caldas do Gerês is an information centre. They provide information on the flora and fauna of the park, archeological finds (among which the Roman road that once lead from the city of Braga to Rome), walking routes, etc.
In the village of Rio Caldo (6 km), at the “cross” of the lake, there are some shops, cafés and restaurants. More choice is to be found in Caldas do Gerês or Vieira do Minho (all facilities, ± 10 km). A baker passes the bungalow each morning.
The distance to the city of Braga is 30 km and to Guimarães (Unesco World Heritage) 60 km.
