About the property

Secluded house in Serra d'Aire and Candeeiros National Park

5 bedroom isolated villa, sleeps 8, 3 bathrooms (one en-suite), fully fitted kitchen, living room and dining room opening to the swimming pool set in a landscaped garden with BBQ. The fenced property (14.000 square meters) is located in the Serra d'Aire and Candeeiros National Park, making it an ideal place for walks, birdwatching or just relaxing around the swimming pool. The views from the house are beautiful, punctuated by the olive and cork trees and surmounted by the medieval Alcanede Castle. The night sky is also breathtaking. All this, plus the friendliness of the local people guarantees a truly relaxed holiday, away from it all.

Golf Courses: There are two Golf Courses quite near the Villa. One in Rio Maior, Golden Eagle, which is 30 km away and the other one closer to Obidos (about 50 km away). We'll supply full details for both.

Relaxing and wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the house. Enjoyable and so relaxing. The House has everything you need during your stay. Clean sheets, towels, huge kitchen you can dance in with the so nice gas stove (!) and a gorgeous view ! Every single morning we were astonished again about that view. A very clean pool and a well-groomed garden!

Grocery shopping for the daily purpose achievable within 10min drive down into the village. Bigger supermarkets you'll find in 20km distance. Lisbon, Porto, Tomar and Batalha are very nice places to visit.

Our hosts Manuel and Sonia are the kindest persons we ever met. They stayed in contact with us and if we needed anything they were always helpful.

We definitely will come back!

Thank you so very much Manuel and Sonia for a vacation we 'll always remember! Got to love the Country and the People. We will see you again!

Estadia maravilhosa!

  • 5 of 5

Adoramos as nossas férias na Casa da Serra. Local perfeito para umas férias calmas e descontraídas. As áreas interiores são espaçosas, acolhedoras e muito bem equipadas. Os dias eram passados na fantástica piscina e as noites o ponto de encontro era na mesa de jogos ou a apreciar a excelente coleção de filmes existente na casa. As crianças, e os adultos também, aproveitaram bastante o espaço exterior- jogar à bola,à apanhada, alimentar os peixes no lago, caminhar, descontrair, beber um copo de vinho ao luar, admirar a paisagem de perder de vista...A casa perfeita para umas férias em família e em contacto com a natureza. O nosso agradecimento ao Manuel e a Sónia por terem nos recebido tão bem e por serem incansáveis para que a nossa estadia fosse impecável. Umas férias que deixaram saudades e a promessa de voltar.

A família Baeta - Henrique, Quitéria, Bernardo e Bárbara.

True relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Arriving late on Thursday we were greeted Manuel and his wife. they took us up to the property and gave us the guided tour. Thanks for the welcome basket and sorting out food for us at the local restaurant. Very friendly and outstanding food. A place for couples and people looking for total relaxation!!! Once again, thanks to Manuel for looking after us and apologies for the little Portugese!

Wonderful holiday in Portugal

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised by the very warm personal welcome by Manuel and Sonia on our arrival.

The house exceeded our expectations, especially the spacious kitchen where we found everything we needed (and more). It has been a very relaxing holiday in a house where we felt truly at home.

The sunny days we spent swimming, the evenings around the outdoor barbeque in the comfortable seats.

We stayed in the villa with 2 families (4 adults and 4 children) and we found we had enough space and enough privacy for all.

Alcanede, the closest village, is just 2 km away wih all the modern facilities: restaurants, banks, cafés, internet space, supermarket, post office and health centre. Santarém, 30 km away, is a small gothic town well worth a visit for its churches, manors and old Arab and medieval fortifications. There is a good reason to call it the Portuguese Gothic Capital. Peniche and Nazaré, both old fishing ports with miles of unspoilt beaches, are 70 km away. On a short ride from the villa, one can also visit the beautiful caves of Serra d'Aire with its underground rivers and lakes and thousands of multicoloured stalactites. Also at a distance of about 60 km lies the old medieval town of Obidos and the Holy Shrine of Fatima.
