Cozy Xisto is a beautifully restored traditional village house. Hugo, the owner, has created a very comfortable, relaxing place to stay. It was perfectly situated for us - close enough to Castelo Branco, but in a very quiet village in lovely countryside. Hugo was very welcoming, and did all he could to ensure we had a good stay.
