Casa Guadiana is located in an area where there is a wide variety of birds never or rarely seen in the UK – too many to list here. All the aficionados agree that this is a fine location for bird-watching. In the immediate vicinity of the house you are likely to see Hoopoes, Bee Eaters, Golden Orioles and the rare Azure-winged Magpie. On the river, Kingfishers, the Purple Heron and flocks of Egrets are frequent visitors. You have a great view of these birds from river level from one of the boats or canoes. Further afield the ubiquitous and magnificent Stork can be seen with its distinctive nest on top of telephone poles and nestled against church towers.

Real tranquillity is rare - you have it here. We've had a wonderfully relaxing time interspersed with exploring the beautiful surroundings. We went to 'Hannah's Pool' in the Vascao and the girls loved swimming there and jumping off the rock. Picking fresh pomegranates off the tree was a joy. We've been upriver twice and explored the Vascao by canoe. The house is well-equipped and very comfortable. The view of the river is superb - the perfect spot. Thank you.
