Very pleased with our visit
The house was very clean and comfortable and our hosts Ricardo and Anna were so kind and patient with us - we could not speak Portuguese.
It is situated right in the centre of the lovely village and the villagers were all so friendly.
Would definitely return again and would recommend it to anyone.

Seul point négatif, parle très peu le Français. Kin
Foi uma estadia simpatica !
As condições do alojamento são como diz excepto o facto de não termos tv durante a estadia. Dado que é uma casa que fica um pouco isolada, não existindo nada perto onde passar o serão, um café ou algo assim, e sendo uma zona com pouco acesso a rede móvel, torna -se um pouco aborrecido não ter tv.
Esta também um pouco distânte de todos os servicos, sendo necessario deslocarmo-nos de carro para todos os lugarea.
Não existiu visita as caves ....
Tem condições intsriores mas esta um pouco distante de tudo por isso n foi muito agradavel.
Special interest holidays:
If you come to our apartment in a special day you can enter in our event. We have already made Cuban nights and Fado of Coimbra Nights.
The coast is approx 45 mins easy and picturesque driving. Figueira da Foz is 45 mins and is the largest resort in the Central region. The beach is 1/4 mile from road to shore and has various cafes and bars halfway between the 2. The resort is really lively in the summer months as the Portuguese holiday here. Nazare is about 1hr drive. You will also find loads of unspoilt villages along the coast. We also have an inland beach at Figueiro dos Vinhos.
We are almost halfway between Lisbon (approx 200km) and Oporto airports. We are about 10 minutes off the main A1 motorway which is easily reached from the airports. We will provide you with comprehensive directions on booking.
Ryan Air and TAP fly to Oporto from various European airports and offer great bargains. BA, Easy jet, TAP and KLM are amongst the companies that also fly into Lisbon from various European airports.
Coimbra, historic and cultural 3rd City of Portugal, 25mins.
Penela, quaint market town with market, banks, post office, cafes, bars, restaurants, indoor swimming pool, cinema (all films are in English with subtitles-cost approx 4€), 10mins.
Condeixa, lovely town with fantastic outdoor pools, Intermarche and Lidl supermarkets, restaurants etc, 10mins.
Coinimbriga and Rabacal, recognised as some of the best Roman ruins ever discovered, 10 mins.
Our house is situated in the lovely village of Podentes. We have 3 fresh bread vans that call every day except Sunday. A friendly (and cheap) cafe/bar and a little shop for basics. We are very conveniently situated for Penela, Coimbra, Condeixa and Miranda do Corvo. Whilst we do not have a pool there is no shortage of swimming facilities available close by. Penela has an indoor 50m pool and a children's pool. Condeixa has larger outdoor pools and a cafe. Up in the hills above Penela you will find the natural lake at Louçainha which is free to use. There are BBQ and picnic facilities there and a restaurant which is open in the summer months. At Lousa we have another natural lake in the hills with a restaurant recognised as one of the best in the region. In Pombal (approx 30 mins) you will find an outdoor Waterpark which will provide all day entertainment for the whole family. This area of Portugal is simply stunning with a wealth of things to do and see, unrivalled anywhere else in the country. What's more, as it is relatively unknown and uncommercial you will find prices for food, drink, ice creams, entertainment, pools etc are very, very reasonable.
