ABOUT THE CASA
The Casa is divided into 2 smaller casas to rent and finds itself at the dead-end of a peaceful street on the edge of the beautiful central Portugese town of Penela, most known for its medieval castle remains that can be freely visited. The casa is located in the shadow of this castle. The Casa itself is surrounded by Portuguese nature which can be seen from both rental casas as well as from the garden. A rolling landscape of hills filled with vineyards and scattered with walking/biking paths. The name 'Casa das Andorinhas' (Andorinhas = Swallows in Portuguese) comes from the many swallows in the area.
