Pięknie miejsce.

  • 5 of 5

Miejsce dla osób lubiących spokój i kontakt z naturą. Gospodarze bardzo mili, domek dobrze wyposażony, czysto. Dodatkowo wielki stół na zewnątrz, grill, hamaki i duży leśny teren do własnej dyspozycji. 12 km do bardzo ładnej plaży nad Oceanem. Dobre miejsce dla chętnych odwiedzić Fatimę, można też wyskoczyć do Lizbony. Uwaga - wbiłem do nawigacji miejsce na mapce z HomeAway, lepiej podać dokładne wsp. N39.64813, W008.95592. POLECAM !

Hidden paradise close to popular touristic spots

  • 5 of 5


This is a great house for nature-lovers and adventurers, but also for people who love mainstream tourism including shopping and the sea. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and feel like this house has it all! Nature, culture, relaxation.

The house itself is not the most spacious or well-equipped house we ever visited, but it was comfortable enough, especially during summer season when you will mostly be outside anyways.

The kitchen is very basic with two little electric stoves and a few pans. We did feel like an electric water kettle would be a quite essential addition. The kitchen is good enough for cooking basic meals, and on other days the relatively cheap restaurants in the surroundings are a nice alternative.

A more comfortable couch and chairs in the "living room" would be great for the evenings, but during the day the hammocks are amazingly comfortable for a quick nap or just chilling with a glass of wine.

The garden and BBQ area can use some tidying and cleaning, but we didn't mind it that much.

The location of the house is gorgeous, in the middle of a pine wood and next to a very cold and crystal clear little stream. Lots to explore by foot around the area, including a forlorn village in the middle of the woods, interesting plants and butterflies. Great for nature-lovers!

Do bring some ear plugs for the neighbours' dogs, which are barking constantly.

We went to Intermarché for our groceries, and loved the huge Chinese store next to it. For absolutely stunning beaches we visited Praia de Vale Furado, Praia de Paredes and more. We went to the market in Nazaré, which was absolutely crowded.

We also enjoyed driving around the area and exploring the little authentic Portuguese villages, culture, nature and monuments.

Overall, we found the house to be extraordinary, in its quiet and natural location, but still very close to so many places to visit including popular and crowded spots! We regretted having to go home after a few days, and definitely consider coming back next year!

Cet endroit est magique. C'est tout à fait ce qu'on avait imaginé! Le ruisseau rafraîchissant, la petite sieste sous les pins, le barbecue...

Très bon accueil.

En plus il y a plein de belles choses à voir dans la région.

Le seul petit hic à été les chiens du voisin qui ont aboyé la nuit parce que seuls...

Très bien mais.......

Dommage que ce petit coin de paradis soit entouré de voisins peu scrupuleux qui considèrent être seuls au monde et laisse leurs chiens rompre en quasi permanence le silence promis à un repos mérité
