A really lovely property in a great location.

  • 5 of 5
We had a great fortnight at your house, thank you. It really is a lovely property in a great location. The house is beautifully furnished and, as we had read in other reviews, very clean and well equipped. The pool was most welcome as we had some very hot weather. We also found your comprehensive local information extremely useful in planning our sight-seeing. We managed to cover most of your suggestions and your comments were very helpful. We visited some great places - coast, rivers, mountains, towns & cities - all very different and surprisingly unspoilt and quiet. A great day out was the kayaking trip.

Note for fellow coeliacs - pleasantly surprised to find gluten free products in the supermarkets, the Continente chain having the best range.

Optimo!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! We have travelled around Portugal on holidays, for almost 30 years, and this definitely ranks as one one the most memorable. We do enjoy cooking & using the BBQ and have rarely found such good facilities in a rented property. The house is beautifully, & tastefully restored, very comfortable! We didn't want to leave! The weather was fantastic, so it was hard to tear ourselves away from the delightful pool, & views. We did however venture to Pedragao beach, & would highly recommend Retunda Restaurant, near the roundabout at the S end of the beach. They do peche em sal ( fish baked in a salt crust) if you book a day in advance. We also enjoyed swimming in the lake at Cabril Barragem, & rented kayaks there, only 10E per hour for a double kayak. They have canoes & small motor boats too at reasonable prices.
In short, this is a taste of the real Portugal! Rural, & friendly. A few words of Portuguese help!
We certainly would recommend this lovely house to anyone & hope to return!
Ate a proxima!

Wonderful !

  • 5 of 5
Perfect villa. We were impressed by all the details, both indoor and outdoor, that make a stay in the villa enjoyable, . The villa is spacious, clean and well equipped. There is everything you need for good holidays, including a beautiful swimming pool. There are a lot of things to see or to do all around (e.g. sea and river beaches, nautical centres, roman ruins, Coimbra, Tomar and monasteries) and all facilities in Avelar 5mn drive.
One of the best locations we ever rent (certainly the best one) ! Highly recommended.
