Everyone stayed in Solar da Vacarica and enjoyed a beautifully renovated rooms, spacious garden with big swimming pool, tennis court and excellent service from the owners. There is a lot to do in the area. Visiting Alianca caves with its underground museum and champagne tasting is a must.
Bussaco Palace Hotel has been build between 1888 and 1907 and resembles the 16th-century architectural style characteristic for the peak of the Portuguese Age of Discovery.
After dinner, everyone headed back to the after party and dancing in the gardens of Solar da Vacarica. I managed to cope with the poor lighting conditions while still working with the ambient light as much as possible. It has been a wonderful experience for everyone, and I'm sure we'll be back someday.
