Overview

About the property

Large grounds, 2 terraces, garden, old fruit trees

A beautiful, typical quinta house for those who are looking for a real special location rather than a normal hotel room with a balcony. The house is located in the village of Espinho, between Miranda do Corvo and Lousa, near the city Coimbra. Here in Espinho, time stands still, many old houses and lanes scratch the picture of this nice part of Portugal. In the village you can finish your beach day or city trip in one of the two loca. bars - between the portuguese inhabitants and not the tourist crowds! Here you are really in the middle of Portugal, among Portuguese! If you want to cook yourself, you can do your shopping in the village shop, on wednesdays on the market or in one of the big supermarkets in Miranda (Lidl, Intermarché). If you prefer eating out, you can do this every day in one of the approximately 20 restaurants in the area, the addresses of the best restaurants can be found in the kitche of our house. However, it is advisable to book in advance. Calculate for dinner about 30 euros including drinks for two people. The beautiful beach of Figueira da Foz is about 30 minutes away and, getting there, you drive through the nice innerland. Figueira offers plenty of bars, restaurants and nightlife locations. The old part of Figueiras is Buarcos, with a beautiful wide sandy beach. We recommend arriving here at lunch time. The historic city of Coimbra invites you to walk through centuries of art, culture and architecture. In the house itself you can enjoy a beautiful view with stunning sunsets. Behind the house the forest, which invites you to stroll around and discover. In short, there is plenty to do for young and old (mountain biking, hiking, fishing, swimming and sightseeing), for those who want to spend an extraordinary holiday. Long term tenants are welcome, pets upon request, extra fee 5 euro per day. Final cleaning 25 euro. Deposit 100 euro.

About Christiane Koschinski

Since we live and work full time in The Hague, NL, we still cannot enjouy the house as much as we want to. Therefore, we do rent it out to those who like and appreciate it!

Christiane Koschinski purchased this house in 2005

Why Christiane Koschinski chose Coimbra Region

Real Portugal, country and friendly people. No mass tourism. Nature, culture, good roads and highways. Public transport in progress, own car necessary!

Very relaxed and quiet

  • 4 of 5

We spent two very relaxed weeks in the house, or mostly on the terraces. We fell in love with the setup of the garden and the lovely interior. The view is amazing and my personal highlight was the overall silence. Our 2.5 year old was also old enough to handle the many small stairs, and he loved the sheep coming by on the neighbours ground. We did only very little hiking, but the areas seems great for it.

The hosts where easily reachable and helpful with upfront information and getting us an extra key during the stay.

Small downsides: You might find the garden difficult for smaller kids running around. Once in a while the silence was interrupted by the choir of the village's dogs..

Tolles Ferienhaus in den Bergen

  • 5 of 5

Wir , 2 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder, verbrachten eine sehr schöne Zeit in diesem wundervollen Ferienhaus. Das Haus liegt am Rand eines alten Dorfes, Espinho, mit engen Gassen und alten Häusern. Der Ort liegt am Berg und man hat vom Haus aus einen wunderschönen Blick ins Tal. Ein anspruchsvoller und sehr pittoresker Wanderweg verläuft direkt am Haus vorbei.

Das ganze Anwesen bestand ehemalig wohl aus drei alten Häusern. Es ist komplett neu renoviert mit einer großzügigen Terassenlandschaft, einer grandiosen Eßküche und zwei gemütlichen Schlafzimmern. Das Haus ist mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht und noch ein wenig darüber hinaus. Sehr großzügig und urgemütlich.

Es gibt gute Restaurants, wunderbare Naturflußbadeanstalten und schöne Regionalstädte.

Ideal für Leute die gerne wandern, gut essen wollen und Portugal von seiner wahren Seite kennen lernen wollen.

Man sollte ein Auto haben, möglichst nicht zu groß.

Wir hatten einen wundervollen Urlaub, danke!

Sehr schöner Urlaub im Norden Portugals 😀

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei sehr schöne Wochen in diesem Haus verbracht. Viel Natur und wunderschöne Naturbecken. Ein Auto sollte man aber schon haben. Trotz der ruhigen Lage war man nicht ab vom Schuss und konnte alles Sehenswerte gut erreichen. Das Haus war wie beschrieben, in einem sehr guten Zustand, sauber und frisch gereinigt...so wie man es sich wünscht. Wir waren gut betreut und bekamen vom Vermieter viele gute Tips die uns das Leben dort einfach gemacht haben. Bedingungslos weiter zu empfehlen für den, der das echte Portugal kennenlernen möchte, abseits der Touristenhochburgen. Wir kommen gerne wieder. Claudia und Rolf

Sehr schön, gerne wieder

  • 5 of 5

Die Lage ist sehr schön, einsam, mit einem super Blick in die Berge. Die Zufahrt zum Haus ist wirklich eng aber zu schaffen.

Der Kontakt war sehr nett und immer verfügbar. Das Haus ist mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht, evtl fehlt ein Backofen aber wir haben ihn nicht vermisst. Die Umgebung ist sehenswert. Wir haben einige der Flußschwimmbäder aufgesucht, in der Nachsaison sind die meisten ohne Bar oder Gastronomie aber dafür hat das Becken fast für sich alleine. Falls möglich werden wieder kommen.

Une location de charme

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable dans la villa de Miranda do Corvo. L'endroit est délicieux et très calme, l'idéal pour se reposer et visiter la région centrale du Portugal.

La maison est vaste et possède plusieurs terrasses, dont une ombragée d'une treille, ainsi qu'un petit jardin très agréable. L'ensemble est propre et bien équipé tant au niveau de la cuisine que du confort général (il y a une climatisation dans la chambre et un Wifi qui fonctionne parfaitement). En bref, une adresse à recommander pour les amoureux de la tranquillité et de la nature. Nous espérons pouvoir y retourner.

Fully renovated stone house in Espinho, close to Silver Coast and about 20 km south of Coimbra. Espinho is an old village with very friendly neighbours, tw0 bars and a grocery shop for all daily needs. Bread is daily delivered to your door! Our house is located on a hill near the forest, from where you can enjoy a beautiful view onto Miranda do Corvo and the mountains of the Serra da Lousa.

Lots of shopping and leisure facilities in Miranda and Lousa (3 and 5 km far). Lots of natural swimming pools (piscinas naturales) all over the area. The highlight is Figueira da Foz, a seaside resort on the atlantic coast about 35 minutes away. Location and surroundings offer a lot to those who love unspoiled nature, but no mass tourism.
