Visitor Reviews of Serra da Estrela
Fletcher Christian from Pitcairn writes:
Serra da Estrela is very small, suitable for a one day visit only. But is very well equipped for it's size, with a ski-school, a large rental shop, piste-side restaurant/bar, sledding and a shopping center selling local handicrafts and produce. All of which makes it perfect for families with children and/or non-skiers.
The resort suffers from severe limitations such as unpredictable climate, insufficient altitude, flat layout and limited access (it is set in conservation area) which means that it is probably open less than half the season, but it is a miracle that Portugal even has a ski resort.
