We will try to update this section of our website on a regular basis as information and dates become available, but we should point out that the Portuguese are notoriously poor at advertising their events and activities, despite them usually being of excellent quality. However we can tell you the following:-
Festas (Parties) are held by many villages in the area, for the three evenings over a weekend, with food and live entertainment, the former being typically Portuguese and inexpensive, the latter being amazingly good quality and great fun.
We can organise the following activities and experiences (all at extra, usually modest, cost) for our guests
A day out on Castelo de Bode Lake, with private motorboat, wakeboarding and a picnic.
Water Skiing, kayaking and canoeing with professional local companies.
Off-roading/4×4 experience (subject to availability)
