This was our second visit to Casa da Roda, this time with teenagers in tow. It's a great place to stay, so peaceful, with amazing views to soak up while you eat on the terrace or relax by the pool. The adults enjoyed a ride out on the motor bikes (this is a biker's paradise, all the curving mountain roads), while the younger generation had fun with the off road bikes, mountain bikes, canoe and swimming pool games. There are beautiful walks round the lake, and you can swim in it- swim shoes advisable though as it's rocky to climb in and out. Geoff and Lin, the owners, are incredibly friendly and helpful, and explained to us how to keep the villa cool even when it was scorching outside. The nearest supermarket is 15 minutes drive away (there is a Lidl and an Intermarche) so we ate in most evenings. There is a new hotel 5 minutes drive away that we tried one evening- good food but we had to make a special request for vegetarian!
We shall definitely be going back, this is a really good find!More
