ADDRESS

Paço Da Torre
Rua Rainha D. Amélia, 12
3670-102 Figueiredo das Donas, Vouzela
Portugal

The major access route to Figueiredo das Donas is the A25 highway (Aveiro, Viseu, Guarda-Albergaria-Vilar Formoso, Spain).
Driving east from Aveiro in direction of Viseu, take Exit 13 (Vouzela / S. Pedro do Sul), and then drive 10 km to Vouzela (town centre) and thereafter continue in the direction of Fataunços and Figueiredo das Donas for about 7km.
Driving westbound on A25 from Spain and Guarda, take Exit 16 (Tondela / Vouzela), and drive towards Vouzela. In Fataunços (just before Vouzela) turn right in the direction of Figueiredo da Donas.

Note: If you travel with GPS, this might advise you to turn in direction of Vilharigues about 4 km after leaving A25 at exit 13. We suggest ignoring this instruction and continuing straight ahead in direction of Vouzela for 3 km more until the town centre. It is merely a question of comfort, as the road through Vilharigues is very winding.

 

Description of route in detail

When leaving A25 at exit 13, drive until the centre of Vouzela. From here go in the direction of Fataunços (if you do not immediately see the sign for Fataunços, follow the sign for Parque de Campismo, which is in the same direction, but only until you leave the town of Vouzela).
