Overview

Azoia de Baixo Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroomed semi-detached rural cottage in a charming village with pool

The recently (2008) restored semi-detached rural cottage is in a delightful country village, about 45 minutes north of Lisbon easily reached from the main A1 motorway. Located in a typical Ribatejo village with 2 restaurants/cafes, it is ideal for touring central Portugal. There is a small garden with some mature fruit trees (lemon, pomegranate, kaki, walnut) and a magnificent linden tree under which you can spend a lazy summer afternoon by the 6m x 3m swimming pool. There is an open sun deck area with a barbecue and pool shower and a covered area for relaxing or eating outdoors. The house was completely refurbished in 2008 keeping the original façade but the south side of the house is in glass and rustic bricks, which prolongs the kitchen/dining area and the living room into the garden. It is a great location for touring, and Santarém (known as Portugal’s Gothic Capital) is 4km to the South with plenty of shops, cinemas etc and direct motorway link to the beaches 30 minutes away.

Enjoy a lazy and relaxed afternoon in the hammock by the pool before a soccer table match with your party. If you prefer some action, nearby there is a small horse riding stable providing lessons and carriage rides or play in one of the several golf courses in the area ( Óbidos - 35 mins, Rio Maior - 30 mins. Campo Real and Bom Sucesso - 50mins and 6 courses in Lisbon - 50 mins.) The beaches are about 30 minutes away however, the journey is very easy with a good motorway link.

If the size of your party is too big for this house, we also own the adjoining Property 1126401 which may be available.

We all enjoyed our stay. Very confortable, spacious house staying cool on hot days. We visited Lisboa, Sintra,... the beaches of Nazaré and Guincho, Cascais, but also enjoyed l-a-z-y days by the pool. Thank you. TP, August 2014

Lovely holiday in Azoia de Baixo

  • 5 of 5
We spent a delightful 2 week holiday in this gem of a house. It was true to the description, roomy and pleasantly decorated, clean and well maintained. It has everything you need. The garden is a real haven and the pool much apreciated in the summer heat. The village is quiet but easily accessible(you need a car) are the lovely nearby town of Santarem and many other towns, historical sites, the coast and Lisbon. We particularly enjoyed visiting the medieval festival in Obidos and bellyboarding at the coast. This area of Portugal has a lot to offer and the people are pleasant and very helpful, Stay in this house if you want to relax in the sunshine but also like to explore the places Portugal has to offer. You won't be disappointed with either.

Lovely villa - recommended

  • 4 of 5
The villa is situated in a small village near to the town of Santarem and within a short distance of a major motorway junction, so road connections are excellent. Santarem is great with excellent places to eat (down market but very good), a daily farmers market and a biweekly travelling market which sells quality shoes and clothes at bargain prices compared with the UK. The village of Azoia de Baixo is very sleepy with a daily bread van, a cafe which occasionally serves people and not much else. Barking dogs are a nuisance but not enough to spoil the holiday. From the village there are interesting walks in all directions on road and across fields but if your sense of direction is as bad as mine then take a satnav. From Santarem station you can park for free and take the train to Lisbon which is definitely worth doing.
The villa has high walls on all sides, so you're not overlooked, and a great pool. This means swimming costumes are optional! There's a nice place to eat outside and the small garden has a very relaxing feel. Inside the villa everything is as you'd expect with a well equipped kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a sizeable lounge. No internet and only four Portuguese language TV channels means this place is not for techno freaks (though my company blackberry worked fine through the cellular network, sadly).
If you want a base to visit and explore central Portugal then this villa is perfect. The only factors which knocked it down from 5 stars were the night time barking dogs, the paucity of activity in the village and a minor problem with the hot water which the owner is now addressing. But none of these things detracted from thoroughly enjoying the holiday and recommending this villa to anybody who wishes to visit this part of Portugal. We'd happily go again.

Santarem cottage great value

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage. Very light and cool, the pool was brilliant for the children in the hot weather. Friendly village and great place from which to explore Fatima and Lisbon, as well as being only 1 hour from the beach and within easy reach of Santarem and Obidos. Arrangements with Maria Helena were very smooth and she was helpful and available to offer advice. Would thoroughly recommend it.

Perfect summer holiday property

  • 5 of 5
Two families +55, sister & brother.
We spent five wonderful days visiting nearby places. Late afternoons perfect relax on the pool, garden and terrace. Everything clean and well maintained except few corners of the terrace. Accurate pictures and description of the property. Communication with Helena was excellent, many thanks. It is one of the best property which we rented in the last years. We already recommended it to our best friends.

Vacaciones en Azoia

  • 4 of 5
Pasamos una semana estupenda en Azoia,un pequeño y coqueto pueblo de carácter rural.

La casa y Jardín estaban muy cuidados e invitaban al reposo y la tranquilidad después de las jornadas turísticas. A escasos kilometros de Santarem y en el centro de un amplio radio turístico( Tomar,Sintra,Lisboa...)

Fué un acierto ir a casa de Helena a pasar las vacaciones.Gracias

Schönes Haus - aber bitte nicht im Winter!!

  • 4 of 5
Wir waren vom 9. - 16.01.2011 in diesem Haus. Es liegt sehr ruhig in einem typischen Ribatejo-Dorf und sieht wirklich toll aus. Die Einrichtung ist hochwertig, die Betten klasse und der Garten auch im Winter wunderschön. Es gab nur ein Problem: das Haus ist nur mit 3! kleinen mobilen Heizgeräten ausgestattet und das bei der Größe. Es war ca. 16 Grad, als wir dort waren und in dem Haus sind hohe Decken. Es war völlig ausgekühlt und wir haben sehr gefroren und wurden alle krank. Draußen war es tagsüber wärmer als drinnen. Selbst als wir uns einen zusätzliche Gasheizung kauften, wurde es nicht viel besser. Im Sommer isolieren die dicken Wände sicher toll, aber im Winter kann man dort nicht wohnen. Trotzdem ein tolles Haus und von Frühjahr bis Herbst bestens zu empfehlen.

Owner's Response: Dear Benita6,
Thank you for your comments about your stay in our cottage. I am very sorry to hear about the heating problem you suffered. As you know, there are 4 big oil heather (one for each division of the house) and each bathroom has its own towel rail heather. Although more efficient, I opted not to use gas heather for safety reasons. I am surprised you did not use the open fire for the coldest nights as I am sure your stay would have been much nicer and warmer! Hope to have you and your party back in the cottage, but this time during Summer!
Best regards,
Helena
