House and surroundings
Casa do Ermal is situated on the outskirts of the hamlet of Rio Longo, close to one of the arms of the reservoir of Ermal. This recently built house is fitted with all modern conveniences, and the contemporay architecture, light and airy, makes it a very pleasant spot to spend your holiday.
Along the shores of the lake are beaches and lovely places to swim, and there is a facility for cable waterskiing called Tele-Ski. The nearest waterfront is only a few hundred of metres from the property. The surrounding area is also conveniently situated for walking and (mountain) biking.
