What a special place

  • Submitted: Nov 9, 2013

What a special place. As soon as we walked in and saw the view from the verandah, we were instantly “chilled”.

The view to the lake is absolutely stunning and one you would never grow tired of
The villa is superb with every attention to detail taken care of. It’s like home from home but better equipped!

The weather was a bit changeable this time of year but still warm enough for T shirts – end September/beginning October

Tomar is an absolute must for a visit. Without doubt, the best national monument we’ve ever been to. Just Euros 6 to get in and real value for money. Would go again and again if we could.

Bobi and Cleo were gorgeous and were both regular visitors – we were tempted to leave our belongings behind and smuggle them into each of our suitcases!

As our fortnight progressed the weather got worse – went to Piodao on a rainy day – not the best of weather to visit a village made of slate and granite but absolutely fascinating just the same – would like to go again on a sunny day

Of all the places we have visited, we enjoyed going to Arganil the most. The town is lovely with some quaint little gift shops spread around. Don’t forget to look around the quiet back streets where there are some hidden shops and café bars

We have had a lovely relaxing two weeks and are heading home to our own menagerie tomorrow. We will definitely be coming back to see the dogs, explore some more places and try our luck at fishing again – no luck this time!

Thank you Geoff and Linda for creating such a lovely place to holiday, for giving us privacy but being there if we needed you

Thank you too to Bobi and Cleo – will always remember you two with fondness.

Our second visit is just as good as the first

  • Submitted: Nov 9, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
This is the second time I’ve been to this villa and it was just as good as the first
I would say it was better!

We found lots of great places to eat – I tried chanfana (goat stew) for the first time and it was delicious – I would recommend it to anyone.

This is an amazing country and an amazing villa. The pool is nice because salt water is so much better than chlorine. The view of the lake tops the whole of the villa off.
Thank you Linda and Geoff for being so friendly and nice to all of us and for helping to make this the best holiday ever!

Hattie (Aged 11)

We love this place – our second visit is just as good as the first

The villa and pool are superb and the view of the lake excellent

We ate out a few times and enjoyed all the restaurants – the best being the Grelhada in Arganil – good traditional food and very friendly. The Argus Café in Arganil is also good for coffee and cake.

Thanks to Linda and Geoff for making our stay comfortable – they’re always on hand for advice without encroaching on one’s peace and quiet.

We hope to stay here again one day

A magnificent view and lots of nice quiet evenings

  • Submitted: Nov 9, 2013

We had a really nice time in this house – a magnificent view and lots of nice quiet evenings.

We went with our canoe on the lake, we swam every day in the beautiful clear and warm water

The children played around in the lake and the pool.

We did some sight seeing – we went to Coimbra, Luso, the national park Bucaco, Gois, Pampilhosa and tried some Portuguese restaurants.

The supermarket in Arganil appeared to be very complete and even health food was available and fresh fish.

The public library in Coimbra was astonishing.

Our walks along the forest (and our jogging) kept us in shape. We love the area and hope to come back
