About the property

Cosy And Elegant Cottage W/ A Fantastic Pool ( Rural Location- Paredes De Cour

The Space

Known as 'Casa da Cal', this XVIIth century rural cottage is extremely comfortable, after careful restoration to preserve the traditional character. The cottage is beautifully and comfortably decorated, with an important set of modern facilities. The cottage is composed by two different connected (but separated and potentially independent) wings, as you can see in the photos:

space 1 - a lovely and charming studio (with a living/dinning room, a small kitchen, a bathroom and a hidden double-bed);

space 2 - a beautiful and warm living/dining room + kitchen and two additional bedrooms (with private bathrooms).

This cottage is the ideal place for a couple, a family or a group of friends.

(The prices shown are for the entire cottage (studio + 2 bedrooms + living/dinning room/kitchen, ...). However, we consider to rent separately the space 1 - studio - and the space 2 - with the 2 bedrooms and the living/dinning room/kitchen - offering much more affordable prices. Please send us a note inquiring about this possibility.)

Guest Access

Both living/dining rooms (Spaces 1 and 2) are equipped with TVs, sofas and tables for dinner. Kitchens (Spaces 1 and 2) are fully furnished with a fridge/freezer, stove, oven, cooking plates, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and a kettle. We also provide, for your commodity, the basics for cooking: salt, kitchen herbs, olive oil, etc...

All the bathrooms are complete. You will also find a hair dryer and bathroom supplies.

Bed linen and towels are included. Flexible check-in/check-out. A house key will be provided at the check-in. During the check-in, you will receive a full tour of the house along with an explanation of how everything works: heaters, stove, etc. Any questions regarding the house (or the villages/towns around) can be placed to one of us (we live in a walking distance from the cottage) or by simply sending us a message or an e-mail, 24/7.

Interaction with Guests

The cottage is for rent and you will not be sharing the space with anyone else. The swimming pool is completely accessible to the guests and it is 1 minute walking from the cottage. It is situated close to the main house of the property.

(If you prefer, send us a note inquiring about availability before you try to book).

Casa da Cal

  • 5 of 5

Casa da Cal is a beautifully restored cottage in a lovely rural setting. The owner was extremely helpful and accommodating. The kitchen was well stocked with basics for cooking and fresh fruit, coffee, milk, and juice were there upon our arrival. Maps of local hiking and walking trails were provided. The house can be tricky to find for those unfamiliar with the area so arriving during the day is recommended. We had a wonderful stay and highly recommend Casa da Cal.

  • 4 of 5

Férias em família com filhos pequenos.

Pontos fortes: casa linda, muito bem recuperada e decorada; piscina; sossego; simpatia e disponibilidade do proprietário.

Pontos fracos: acessibilidade à casa, não é possível de carro, carregar malas e com filhos pequenos, não é agradável; mobiliário exterior junto à casa podia ser melhorado (ex. espreguiçadeiras, pufs), e o existente (mesa e cadeiras) podiam estar em melhor estado.

Concluindo: muito recomendável
