If you prefer to relax at home, you can take in the views from the shaded verandahs and sunny patio with salt water swimming pool

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

A little piece of heaven in the mountains

  • 5 of 5
This is our seventh time to visit Casa Da Roda so that must tell you something.
The villa is superb with all the facilities you would want. The swimming pool is ideal for floating around and relaxing. The views are superb across the hills down onto the river and lake. The owners, Lin and Geoff, are in their house in the grounds, but can not be seen, but are nearby should you need them. They are also a font of knowledge of the area, recommending places to see and places to eat. A holiday here, is like stepping back in time, but with modern amenities at the villa. The locals are extremely welcoming and friendly and we have spent many an hour in the village cafe/bar with the locals. , All together, this is the ideal place to relax and chill out. I am now in the process of booking again for next year, I would recommend that you do the same, you will not be disappointed.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Having arrived in Portugal on the previous Saturday to find our original place was not as expected we spent the next 48 hours lokking for alternative place to stay. Casa Da Roda was just what we needed as we had quite a busy two weeks ahead. Peaceful, private, excellent accommodation, lovely terrace and swimming pool area, brilliant views, we really did not get the opportunity to fully experience this lovely place and area. Linda and Geoff were great. They both went that extra step to make us welcome at short notice after our other experience. Variety of food stocked for us including wine. If we needed any help or advice they were on hand but they also respected our privacy (they live next door but you can't see them). You do need a car. We would certainly recommend this place and have already done so to our friends. Thank you both for everything we really hope to see you again.

Idyllic

  • 5 of 5
We spent a very relaxing two weeks with our 3 children in Casa Roda. Geoff and Lin couldn't have been more friendly & helpful, they were on hand if needed, otherwise not intrusive.
The property was perfect for us, very clean and the most amazing views. Plenty of different areas to sit in the sun or the shade, and so quiet.
We found the location suited us, being quiet and secluded, but also handy for the shops in Arganil when needed, and day trips into the mountains, river beaches and surrounding areas.
Our children swam every day in the pool which was perfect for them, and we enjoyed barbecues most days, and walks down to the river.
A perfect relaxing holiday!

Superb villa, superb location, excellent

  • 5 of 5
This was our fifth visit to Casa da Roda and without doubt it gets better everytime. The villa is superb with everything you could need for a relaxing holiday. The owners Lin and Geoff are nearby if you should need them and are a font of knowledge about the local area with where to go, where to eat and what to see. Although living near to the villa, you can't see them and they are not obtrusive at all. The views from the balcony are to die for and there is nothing better than eating meals alfresco looking at the lake or relaxing in the swimming pool. The local area is not 'touristy' and if it is that sort of holiday you want, go elsewhere. What you have here is the most peaceful place you could imagine, with the locals being extremely friendly. It is like going back in time. There is nothing to dislike, infact there is everything to like. If you want a relaxing, superb villa holiday in an idyllic location with sunning views, Casa Da Roda is for you. A massive 5 stars from us.

The Beiras is an area of contrasts, both ancient and modern with villages perched on mountain outcrops and endlessly appealing views of terraced olive groves and cool forest streams.

The villa is situated 7km from the town of Arganil and is a 2 hour drive from Porto and 3 hours from Lisbon.

The nearest café and shop is less than 2 miles away in Sarnadela; there is a Post Office less than 2 miles away in Pombeiro da Beira. The nearest supermarkets are in Arganil which is about 15 minutes drive from the villa – Intermarche and Lidl are the main supermarkets but there are also many cafes, restaurants and small shops including take away pizza, etc.

You will be spoilt for choice with the selection of destinations to enjoy on your trips out which can include the University City of Coimbra (for shoppers and lovers of architecture), the broad white sandy beaches of the western coast and, to the east, the highest mountains in Portugal at Serra da Estrela.
