I'm a university professor, born originally in Coimbra. Have lived in this town for the last 25 years and although I've travelled the whole world I'm more and more in love with my hometown.

Jose purchased this apartment in 1996

In the heart of town, no need to commute and it is even possible to go home for your lunch break! Besides, it has a beautiful garden and the whole building was redone 4 years ago.

One apartment per floor, very quiet, large rooms, excellent overall conditions.

My usual home in Coimbra

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 8, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
Living in Lisbon, Portugal, and being an aficionado of 4 wheel drive sports and having to go at least twice a year to the mountains of Lousã in the center of the country poses some logistical problems when taking my family along while having one or two weeks of fun and mud playing.
All the other contenders in the 4x4 group will camp out in the mountain, while being spoiled by the little pleasures of life, I´ve decided to use Coimbra, 15 miles away, as a station/departure point for my off-road activities.
For our stay in Coimbra we excluded the hotel option. Instead we decided for the extra space and the use of a kitchen that we get on renting an apartment. Pricewise this is also a very appealing option. We met our hosts at a family gathering in this city and our logistic problems were then successfully solved.
In the last 4 years we have been using for our complete satisfaction at least twice a year their apartment in Coimbra. The two room apartment is adequate for our small family of 4. The location allows us to arrive quickly from the highway and also allows me an easy departure in the morning to go to Lousã for my hobby.
While I’m away my family stays in Coimbra where they can reach easily most touristic attractions, all located within walking distance from the apartment plus the shopping areas and coffee shops in the neighborhood.
Talking now about the apartment: it is so much rewarding to arrive from a hard day of sports and find an easy access (a half flight of stairs) to get home. This is of course also true when you are carrying your luggage from and to an apartment.
Home is quiet, with a peaceful atmosphere that allows me to relax in a more efficient way. In fact we really only notice after one week stay that we have not been disturbed at all by any city usual noises.
The apartment is in excellent condition. It is nicely decorated in a way that induces an easy living: you find intuitively things were they should be, just as if you were at home (very useful when waking up in the middle of the night and trying to find your way half asleep!).
In a nutshell: we highly recommend this property.
We will keep coming to this property in the future enjoying this feeling of being home away from home.

Over the years, we have spent several weeks in this apartment where we are treated as members of the family, while being left to our privacy when desired. Our most recent stay was in August 2012, when we spent a week revisiting our friends and favorite haunts in Coimbra, all within walking distance, and reliving our wonderful memories of this special city, returning at the end of the day to the comfort and convenience of this well-equipped and comfortable apartment. When we wanted to venture further, we were within walking distance of the bus and train stations.
The apartment contains all of the amenities one would need for being independent and self-contained. On the negative side, the apartment is furnished and encumbered with an excess of ‘antique’ objects that fill every nook and cranny. It would be better if it wasn’t so busy with valuable objects that can be knocked over and broken. The kitchen, already too small, is made even smaller with a table and chairs that we removed to the laundry room in order to be able to have enough room in which to ‘swing a cat’.
The appliances and cooking utensils are good and allow for being as adventurous in our choices of cuisine as we would desire. The owner is a knowledgeable wine aficionado and introduced us to the best of Portuguese oenological expressions from his own special cellar. His wife is also a superb hostess in the Portuguese tradition, blending special talents in the culinary arts and traditional Portuguese cuisine.
We look forward to our next visit to this magical place in the comfort and assurances that come from a wonderful apartment in which to stay.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments. Regarding the aspects you didn't like so much let me inform you that we have already take actions towards making the kitchen space more functional. It was a pleasure to have you here, as always. See you soon!
