Hilltop Paradise in Central Portugal
Our trip to central Portugal with home base outside of Pombal was greatly enhanced by the opportunity to meet Helen and to rent her exceptional property. Helen's house is a jewel. This 3 bd/2 bath house is impeccably designed and furnished, situated on a hill with superb outside space, beauty, and privacy. We have stayed in VRBO homes across the world, and we were impressed and pleased to find such a perfect house with outstanding cleanliness. No dust bunnies or dirty corners marred the contemporary beauty and comfort of the home. Helen is kind, sweet, and genuine, guiding us as we needed, but maintaining our privacy at all times. For those who have never visited this part of Portugal, it is a unique historical and geographical destination. Within minutes to the spectacular Atlantic coast where fishermen still net fresh sardines during the summer, to the ring of medieval castles that defended the populace, the age of discovery still permeates the air and enriches the culture of the region. And, Helen's house is the perfect home from which to discover the beauty of the landscape, people and culture. We highly recommend her house and this destination. The only very small downside was the occasionally spotty internet service, however, we compensated by hotspotting our phones. Thank you, Helen, for your exceptional hospitality!
Ruhe und Enspannung
Tolles geräumiges Haus das alles hat was eine vierköpfige Familie braucht um eine schöne Zeit, in einem schönen Land, zu verbringen. Es wirkt auf den Bildern größer als es ist aber Platzprobleme gab es nie, im Gegenteil den Raum mit Esstich hatten wir nicht genutzt. Der Zentrale Punkt war ein großer Tisch auf der Terasse, davor ein gepflegter Rasen mit angrenzenden Garten. Alle Schlafzimmer haben eine Glastür zum Garten hin so konnte man direkt zur Terasse und musste nicht durch das Haus. Helena war eine super Gastgeberin die uns mit allem versorgte was wichtig war und hatte auch immer gute Tips um die Gegend zu erkunden.
Danke für Ihre Afrechte recensie. Sie und ihre familie und ihre Freunden sint immer Welkommen.
Tolle Woche im Vale Cottage
Wir haben uns für das Haus entschieden, weil es eine sehr gute Ausgangslage für unsere Unternehmumgen geboten hat und weil wir von den Bildern zum Haus neugierig geworden sind. Man ist in einer Stunde an allen wichtigen Sehenswürdigkeiten, z.B. Coimbra, Fatima, Tomar und am Strand von Nazare. Für einen Tagesausflug nach Lissabon oder Porto benötigt man auf der Autobahn 1,5 Stunden (Mautkosten ungefähr 20,00 Euro).
Das Haus von Helena ist nach einem ereignisreichen Tag ein wundervoller Ort zum Erholen.Die Einrichtung ist hell und modern und läßt keine Wünsche offen. Besonders hat uns gefallen, dass die Schlafzimmer zur Talseite liegen und man so einen ungestörten Schlaf hat, trotz Nähe zu einer Schnellstrasse. Auch Helenas herzliche Art hat sehr zum Gelingen des Urlaubs beigetragen.Sie ist sehr daran interessiert, ihren Gästen den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu gestalten.
Wir können das Vale Cottage ohne Vorbehalte weiter empfehlen.
Dear Petra, thank you so much for choosing my house and for the very positive references. It was a great pleasure to have met you.
You will be always welcomed to Vale Cottage.
We are a couple with a little daughter and we love staying in this house.
Very quiet and pleasant place to rest.
The house is beautifully decorated and fully equipped with everything needed for a family with children. The outside space is large and pleasant.
The welcoming way Helena welcomed us makes us feel at home.
Certainly a place to stay again.
You were my first clients and the experience was very positive, because you were very nice people, who gave me the courage to continue to open the doors of my house to people from all over the world.
You will be always welcome
Points of Interest in the Central Zone:
Coimbra city with one of the oldest Universities in Europe dating from 1308, with a much appreciated Library. The city is crossed by the Mondego River. Just a few kilometers away, there is an ancient Roman city called Sesimbra, very well preserved.
We have several mountain ranges with very interesting walking routes and varying degrees of difficulty.
Among them is the Serra da Lousã with its famous stone villages, such as Piódão - Arganil.
Serra de Aire and Candeeiros, which make up the Estremadura limestone massif. There are several caves, such as the Mira de Aire and Moeda caves.
Serra da Sicó is the right place for those who like climbing, is only 13 km in Redinha, has routes between 15 and 25 meters high. The levels are between III and 8a and are well equipped. Here you have a huge range of walking routes you can do.
For those who like kayaking and canoeing there is the Mondego river and its mouth (Gala), the Cabril Dam with its reservoir, the result of one of the largest dams in the country, and also the Pedrógão Grande Nautical Club, which offers tours. by boat, canoe or kayak. The site also has a boat access ramp with capacity for about 20 boats.
We have many river beaches, the nearest is 25 km Fragas de São Simão, also with several walking routes.
Nazaré is a very famous beach, for its giant waves, for lovers of this sport is a place not to be missed on your trip to Portugal.
The Atlantic Coast is only 25 Km, here has Figueira da Foz a long white sandy beach. Costa de Lavos A white sand beach with its traditional fishing, made between April and October, where the fish is sold on the beach, this fishing is called Arte Xávega. Osso da Baleia, is a vast sandy beach out of sight that extends in front of the National Bear Forest. Very quiet and hidden by the dunes, which separate it from the road, it is a little frequented beach that has been distinguished for its environmental quality, still has São Pedro Moel among others.
For those who like to visit monuments, we have Batalha, Alcobaça, Leiria, Montemor o Velho. Obidos medieval city.
If you like to visit religious sites, you have Fatima 40 km by car, but if you want to make a walking route is 30 km to the Sanctuary, for me it was a challenge.
Valley Cottage will be your port.
