Day away in Sandomil

When was the last time you had a day away? Away from routine, concerns or busy schedules. And, I don´t mean just away from work or home, I mean away from endless commitments, social engagements or pending errands that occupy your mind when you just need some time to unwind.
Plan a leisure day that will allow you to start a productive week!

I had a very enjoyable day away to Sandomil, swimming in the calm waters of River Alva. With the Roman bridge, the old water mill and the deep forests at the back, so relaxing…

Where is Sandomil?

Sandomil, Portugal

The lovely Alva River flows through the quiet village Sandomil , 917 inhabitants only. Located in Seia county, right in the center of Portugal. Between Estrela and Açor Mountains.

You can bring some picnic or treat yourself at the Snack Bar!

And because a picture is worth a thousand words…

Sandomil, Portugal

“Every person needs to take one day away. A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future. Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence. Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.”
