Covilhã Cottage Rental Photos and Description

It is located in a natural park, known for its river beach of Duke Ferdinand, very pleasant place, with a fairly extensive body of water and a vegetable rich and diverse environment. The beach environment is characterized by a vast forest mantle, which makes the pleasant walks, bike or all terrain bike.

The House is part of a collection of buildings typical of the region, associated with flour mills powered by the force of the river. Even today you can see these buildings and also near the mill and the wheels of mills.

Great holidays!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 days in beautiful village of Casegas and we had fantastic time. The house is really lovely and comfortable. Thanks to the owners we felt like at home! They were very helpful and even organized a trip for us so we could explore area around Casegas. Our kids loved the river which is just near the house and they spend half of time playing in the water. We can definitely recommend it and we would love to return some other time! Many thanks for great holidays!

A beautiful place to visit, amazing hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my girlfriend enjoyed a week in this house set in beautiful Covilha. We were here in January - which meant it could be a little cold at times - but the heating system worked well, though the hot water supply could be problematic. The house was beautiful, a tradtional stone house which has been nicely modernised and was generally very comfortable. It was absolutely spotless on arrival.

What was most notable about our stay was the wonderful hospitality provided by the Marcelino family. They were incredibly friendly and helpful whenever we dealt with them and even gave us some home-grown fruit and vegetables which was a lovely touch.

The local village was also very beautiful and everyone there was extremely friendly to us, though we didn't speak Portuguese (and very few of them spoke any English) The general area is stunning, with loads of pretty villages throughout the mountain roads (which are absolutely terrifying to drive on!) Many thanks for having us, we had a great time.

Um fim de semana a repetir

  • 5 of 5

Passei um fim de semana espetacular com a familia. A D. Teresa é super simpática e atensiosa. A casa estava impecável e correspondia a 100% ao descrito. Muito acolhedora, confortável e simpática, com tudo para passar um inverno aconchegante e quentinho. O exterior é muito agradável, o local é sossegado e muito tranquilo. Os miudos adoraram os passeios que demos pelas redondezas e até conseguimos ver uma lontra, que apressadamente fugiu assim que nos viu. Também é de referir a proximidade da Serra da Estrela, com acessos fáceis. Definitivamente uma experiencia a repetir.
