Guesthouse Salgado, Portugal
By Hollie Wicks 

This week we’re sending you to Guesthouse Salgado in Gois, Portugal. It’s an elegantly renovated stone cottage hidden high up in the Ceria Valley in the tiny hamlet of Salgado. Its surrounded by beautiful countryside and striking mountains, making it the ideal rural retreat for you and your partner or brood.

Each Cottage has a South East facing patio with table and chairs, as well as a covered seating area with wonderful views – perfect for a glass of Chardonnay at sunset. There’s even a barbecue provided for every cottage, or place your order with the Cordon Bleu chef for home cooked organic meals.

If you simply want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life this is the holiday for you! It’s ideally suited for walkers, ramblers and wildlife enthusiasts too as there’s plenty of land to wander through and wildlife to discover. You can also enjoy a refreshing dip in the nearby river if you’re feeling brave enough (no skinny dipping please). Or be adventurous and join in with canoeing, hiking trails, fishing or horse riding. This is truly a holiday not to be missed!

/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
