♥ casa das penhas douradas ♥

These last weeks it's been all about snow. Three weeks ago we spent the weekend at one of our favourite hotels in Portugal - Casa das Penhas Douradas - and last week we went on our annual ski trip to the Alps, where we enjoyed the biggest snowfall in recent years.

But more about this lovely hotel which is located near the top of our highest Portuguese mountain, Serra da Estrela. We'd been here for the first time a couple of years ago, and came back not only for the scenery, the very comfortable facilities, but also for the delicious food (which was not as spectacularly amazing as two years ago, but still very good, especially the desserts). We were also very lucky because it snowed. Quite a lot, in fact, which is not so common in Portugal, but made for a great weekend (I think the photos probably speak for themselves :-)

I still didn't manage to visit the Burel Factory this time, so I guess I'll just have to come back for a third visit next year ...
