House and surroundings
Casa de Lemos is a beautiful, late 19th century, country house on the outskirts of the village of Várzeas (Sobradelo da Goma). The House is beautifully restored, with many original features intact. The House is tastefully and modern furnished and consists of a spacious living room with fireplace, a dining room with a modern open kitchen and three bedrooms, each with private bathroom.
Next to the House is the partially covered terrace with barbecue, where you can find shadow on a hot day. The landscaped garden with swimming pool and large lawn has wonderful places to enjoy the summer days, the view and the outdoors. Above the garden are some terraces with fruit trees and grapes, where you can pick your own fruit.
The nearest town is Póvoa de Lanhoso (12 km, all facilities), with a lively centre, a choice of restaurants and a large weekly market. Worth visiting are the 12th century castle and a restored castro (prehistoric settlement). In Sobradelo da Goma is a café and a small shop with groceries. The baker has his daily round in the village itself.
