Casa da Chandeirinha
Reviewed 14 January 2016

An isolated old house up in the mountains near Belmonte.
The pool outside appeared great, but due to weather conditions we could not use it.
The rooms were very small! no windows and no place to put or open our luggage, very low ceiling and the toilets could be closed by a curtain only since there was no door.
The room was not so clean and cobwebs were spotted on the walls.
The room description and pictures on websites were deceiving, since the kitchen was shared for all rooms and unclean (very small rooms).
The owner of the house did not speak English at all.
In overall, it was a real disappointment and not comfortable for me to sleep there one night.

Room Tip: It's too expensive for what you get. For me it was very dirty there. It was a real disappointmen...

This summer we toured the Historic villages of Interior Portugal and stayed here. This is a home owned by a member of the Portuguese aristocracy, so you get a slight feel for history here (the huge property with wonderful vista, the coat of arms above the fireplace).
But alas, since the aristocracy has been in serious decline, tourists and commoners are now afforded first-hand glances and these old homes and Portugal is a really great country for this with so many pousadas and homes such as this one.

The house was very comfortable, the lady in charge was great and took care of every need (note that there isn't 24-hour concierge, she does not live on the property and leaves for the night). The breakfast was very good and the entire place incredibly clean. The room was beautiful as everything was restored lovingly. Our private bathroom in the bedroom did not, however, have a door (only closed off with curtains). Could be a little awkward if you have older kids staying in the room with you.

There is a swimming pool with a great vista of the region. I recommend calling ahead to advise what time you're arriving. They actually have two houses on the property and could see this as a great hangout place with some friends as the pool area can lend itself to a great party atmosphere!

Continental Breakfast included in the price not bad, slept with our window open (mossie screen shut) the road noise from the nearby A23 gave us a disturbed nights sleep so had to shut the window for the rest of the trip. Accommodation is rustic with a good size outdoor swimming pool and seating area. A good starting point for the Sierras das Estelas and some of the castles in that part of Portugal. Accommodation is very large we were a party of 11 and there was room to spare. The kitchen area is very small which didnt bother us as we had a bbq or ate out.

Room Tip: Rooms downstairs to the west are away from traffic noise
