Situated near the city of Penafiel and at 40km from Oporto, the "EIRA das CARVALHAS AL" welcomes you to a traditional place where the ancients keept and produce the cereals. You can enjoy the local fauna and flora, breed the fresh air in the morning and see and ear the singing birds, the woodpeker, the frogs or the butterflies...
The "EIRA das CARVALHAS AL" is part of the "Quinta do Carvalho" farm, old and traditional portuguese place where you can assist and participate in the ordinary day of the farm wich produces "vinho verde" wine.
We have two pools, a traditional treated one and a natural (fresh water from mine) pool.
Near us are the ancient place of "Castro Monte Mozinho" (it is the largest of the Iberian Peninsula Roman Castro) and the renewed "Termas de S. Vicente" where you can take a thermal bath with special health-giving properties.
Also, for the kids, Penafiel offers a new 2012 "Magikland" amusement park at 5km.
(pools recommended only between May and September)
