it is a very beautiful house, I am glad we could do the walking and went to see it, it deserves a visit, but only from the outside, I would not recommend paying to go inside.

Interesting Chalet, it must have been "good to be the king,". Why not have your place and chalet down the hill to enjoy with your wife. This I guess was sort of like camping for royals.

We went to the Chalet on foot from the Pena Palace, it's not very far away and it's all downhill (there is also a bus transport available). All the way you are walking through an amazing park. The Chalet is a small wooden structure, quite...More
