Overview

About the property

Rooms with direct access to the pool and gardens

Stay in this house is a unique family experience. It is located in a valley that has been crossed by the oldest Roman road in the country and has absorbed the influences of several generations of travelers who passed through here. Near the house, you can visit a dolmen pre-Roman visitors. The name of the village itself is evidence of commercial activity: Venda Nova, sales, local sales of local products. When other communication networks have been developed, the village became increasingly quiet and is now at the end of a broad valley surrounded by forests where abounds quiet but close to places of great cultural and artistic interest as Conimbriga and Buçaco.

Accueil généreux et tranquillité

  • 4 of 5

Nous venons de passer une semaine à cinq dans cette grande villa située dans une région montagneuse, tranquille mais non isolée ; le centre ville se trouvant à quelques minutes en voiture. Les propriétaires, Silvia et John, sont des gens extrêmement accueillants, réactifs et généreux qui ont su tout de suite nous mettre à l'aise et metttre à notre disposition un book de sites à visiter dont la région regorge.

Nous recommandons cet endroit à tous ceux qui souhaitent retrouver de l'authenticité et la chaleur humaine.
