Romeira Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Wall House - sleeps 4+1 Gate House - sleeps 2+1

These two recently restored rural cottages are in a delightful country setting about 50 minutes north of Lisbon easily reached from the A1 motorway. The property has beautiful uninterrupted open country views to the South yet is located on the edge of a small hamlet with 2 cafés and a small shop only 100 metres away to the North; an ideal situation. There is an ample garden and you can also enjoy the fruit from the trees, when in season. There is a large swimming pool shared by both cottages, a sun deck area and a barbecue. There are several bicycles, a tennis table, croquet set and other equipment to add to the pleasure of your stay. Internet access is available – on request we will provide you with a pre-paid mobile broadband USB.

It is a great centre for touring, and Santarém (known as the Gothic capital) is 10km. to the South with plenty of shops, cinemas etc. There is a straight motorway link to the coast about 40 minutes away and good restaurants all around.

Linen: House linen and towels are provided. Swimming pool/ beach towels are not provided.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We have had a wonderful time relaxing here at the Wall House. Really enjoyed the pool, garden and terrace with superb views across the country side. We visited Óbidos and walked the walls. Swam in the Atlantic Ocean at Peniche, Lagoa de Óbidos, Foz do Arelho and São Martinho do Porto – the water here was really warm but no waves. We also went to Luís dos Leitões for a meal – he gave us a bottle of “home made spirit”. …

GREAT GETAWAY IN A NON-TOURISTY AREA!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa do Muro. The cottage is comfortable with a wonderful garden and pool with sweeping views of the countryside - very atmospheric. We particularly enjoyed staying in a non-touristy area as a contrast to our earlier stay in Lisbon which we also enjoyed enormously - the combination was perfect for getting to know various aspects of Portugal on this our first visit. While Sinterra is small and nobody speaks English, it has two tiny cafes with shops attached, bread delivery and great coffee! Despite being in the countryside, the drive from Lisbon is very easy and there are many great places to visit nearby such as Tomar, Obidos and Santarem. We had great traditional food in local restaurants too, especially suckling pig at Luis dos Leitoes in Portela Padeiras. The local wines were also excellent. The owner was extremely helpful, both before we arrived (thank you for the hair dryer Helena!) and afterwards and we were able to communicate very easily by email and phone. We had a great time. Thank you!

NICE STAY IN THE SMALL VILLAGE SINTERRA

  • 4 of 5
After a dull and rainful spring in Belgium, we really enjoyed the sun in Sinterra.
The stay in Casal do Inglès – Casa do muro was very relaxing and enjoyful. The
nice garden with astonishing view, the swimming pool which is big enough and a real
luxury, fruit falling from the trees, the silence,….all contributed to a successful holiday.
The house in itself has good beds, a big enough bathroom (powerstream of the water is
not high) , a living room and a fairly small kitchen. Eating outside on the terrace is the best
to do. As the direct area is not touristic, you can learn to know the real Portugese life.
On the other hand, a visit – like we did – to Santarem, Obidos, Alcobaca, Batalha, grutas de
Mira de Aire, Nazare and Peniche, Tomar, Lisbon, Constancia (Canoe trip) is possible without driving for hours.
Before, during and after the stay there is adequate information from the owner and the neighbourhood is friendly.

PORTUGESE PARADISE!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to Portugal and we wanted somewhere quiet to live. The Villa was exactly as described and perfect. It was clean, well maintained and simply stunning! It is set in absolutely beautiful Portuguese countryside, yet only an hour from Lisbon.

All the e-mailed instructions, prior to arrival were easy to follow and explained exactly the location and situation for when we arrived.

The owners left a really useful Villa handbook which describes the best local restaurants and the other local places to visit and surrounding towns and villages. It also gave local inforation on Cafes and bread deliveries.

Swimming pool was fantastic as were the fruit trees that we were invited to help ourselves to!

One final word - Lisbon Zoo is simply awesome - if you have a spare day, you should visit it - we saw an advert for it on the plane in and were captivated.

This property is highly recommended...... We can't wait to go back! A true Portuguese Paradise.........

GREAT FIND IN TRULY RURAL LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5
We wanted a peaceful, relaxing holiday away from the tourist trail but not too far that we couldn't make a day trip to Lisbon or the coast. Sinterra was perfect - no English spoken, daily bread deliveries and two very small traditional cafes - and Santarem not far away with supermarkets, shops and cafes serving great inexpensive pastries/coffee.

The sun shone every day during our 2 week visit and Caso do Muro's great pool (no chlorine) and garden with perfect naturally shaded spots was ideal. Teenagers entertained with table tennis in barn, bikes, pool and, when just too hot, by watching our dvds on dvd player which owner kindly organised in advance of our visit. The house is furnished in a traditional style with a small kitchen area and is not overlooked with open views to the rear.

We made a number of trips including Lisbon, Peniche, Obidos and would have done more if the weather hadnt been so hot! Some restaurants were closed due to holidays but still we ate well. Eat where the locals eat and you can't go wrong!

Thank you Helena - our first visit to Portugal was a success.

The property is in the Ribatejo region, on the Tagus river north of Lisbon. It is known for its farming, horses, bull-fighting and wine production but is also a region steeped in historical monuments.

The countryside is ideal for walking and cycling. This is not an area of mass tourism. The people in this region are very honest and friendly and you are assured of a warm welcome.

The regional food is excellent.

There are open markets every weekend somewhere close by, and the towns have large supermarkets and all the other likely needs for your stay.
