quiet place with a wonderful surrounding

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a retired, quiet place in the middle of nature, with wonderful surrounding, original interior design. It was easy to find with the precise indications of the owners, who are very friendly and helpful. We didn't feel the absence of anything.

The house is very well located at the Serra da Estrella foothills. Also there are a lot of fortifications in the neighborhood, in a convenient driving distance.

Me and my o'team stayed there a week and we enjoyed every moment of our stay.I warmly recommend this property for everyone.

Du calme dans un endroit de reve.

  • 5 of 5

Un gite qui a répondu parfaitement à nos attentes pour toute la famille. Un accueil chaleureux. Une piscine à la fraicheur bienvenue.

Un spot parfait pour visite le Parque Natural da Serra da Estrela: Une visite sur le toit du Portugal s'impose.

Paradise on a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fabulous. We enjoyed the nature and the quietness. The cottage is not big - but you don't need that in summer, and there's a big roofed terrace with outdoor kitchen: wood ovens, barbecue, gas furnace, and some toys. Don't expect luxury (except the wellcome airco in the hottest sleeping room), you should come here to enjoy nature and quietness. Around the cottages is an enormous 'park' with fruit trees, berries and a fantastic swimming pool. Paulo was a very friendly and helpful host! About 10 km is the nice little town Belmonte where you can do shopping, find some museums (we visited the jewish museum), and there's a very cheap and good restaurant (O Galo) next to the intermarche supermarket. A little further is the village Valhelhas with a nice river beach and a superb restaurant Soadro do Zezere. In the region, there are a lot of fortified little towns (we visited Sortelho, just one of them). Vela is located at the east side of the Serra da Estrela, we also enjoyed the drive to Coimbra right through the Mountains via Manteigas.

It's a pity we only stayed 5 nights there, we should have stayed longer.

Many thanks to Paulo.

Si quieres desconectar este es el lugar ideal

  • 5 of 5

Ha sido una semana muy relajante, el lugar invita a ello. La casa es fresca y cómoda, la piscina estupenda y con juegos para niños y adolescentes (dardos, ping pong, futbolín). La zona es bonita, tiene pueblos interesantes que visitar. Los dueños de la casa han sido muy amables y hospitalarios. Volvería sin dudarlo.

Paradijsje achter de bergen

  • 4 of 5

Verwacht niet teveel materiële luxe, maar wel de luxe van een eigen prachtplek onder de zon en sterren, met alles wat een vakantie leuk en onvergetelijk kan maken.
