Maison de charme dans une région merveilleuse

  • 5 of 5

Comment ne pas tomber sous le charme de cette maison, de ce village, de cette région ?

Nous n’arrivons pas à trouver les qualificatifs qui correspondent à ce que nous avons vécu cette semaine mais les souvenirs emplissent notre mémoire…

Ne manquez pas de déambuler dans les rues en pavés à la découverte de l’ancien lavoir et de la borie (cabane de berger en pierre au toit de chaume); de saluer le berger qui rentre et sort ses brebis chaque jour. Emerveillez-vous de ses gigantesques chênes-liège qui ont déjà renouvelé plusieurs fois leur ”peau”, de ses oliveraies, écoutez les oiseaux chanter, prenez du bon temps…

Nous avons également parcouru les nombreuses curiosités de la région notre préférence va bien sur à Marvao au coucher du soleil, mais nous avons également grandement apprécié la route de Vale de Rodao et la traversée du petit village de Escusa; celle de Castelo de Vide et ses paysages de cailloux lunaires, les petites rues hors de temps de la ville médiévale de Castelo de Vide; la sympathique promenade à cheval avec ”Caballos Marvao” et leurs guides polyglottes.

Un site à ne pas manquer également : la piste d’envol de parapente sur la route de l’hermitage de Castelo de Vide (Penha); lieu privilégié pour observer les rapaces (aigles ?), profiter de la vue exceptionnelle sur toute la plaine et du coucher de soleil.

Dans la casa do Brasao même, n’hésitez pas à acheter des produits du Bar Honesto; ils sont délicieux, bios et pas chers, une bonne idée pour faire vivre l’artisanat local.

Nous terminerons en remerciant chaleureusement Luis pour son accueil et son dévouement. Une chose est sure, nous n’oublierons pas de si tôt Barretos et la casa do Brasao…

Patrick, Marie-Luce, Antonin et Céleste
