Localização excente.
A pousada é simples mas cumpre o seu papel. Cafe da manha foi Ok. Unico ponto que recomendo a pousada é uma modernização dos quartos com um conforto maior, os colchoes são desconfortaveis, principalmente pelo preço da diaria. De resto, tudo ok. Atendimento cordial e localização perto da Vila.
