Superb place for Relaxation and Exploration of another Portugal

5 of 5
To see another part of Portugal that is more remote yet near towns of interest, to be almost alone with nature in a tiny town, yet to be in a large beautiful home with everything you would need...this house has it all. Located in a tiny town, it is down a narrow path nestled along a quiet river. To locate the house, if you are American, don't use the Degrees, minutes, and seconds (DMS) system but the degrees and decimal minutes (DMM). Enter it into your phone GPS with a comma and space between the coordinates. They are: 40.585958, -7.565383 . As you come into the small rural village of Vila Franca da Serra, don't be alarmed when you go down a very narrow one way street (which is really two-way!), you are on the right path. Go almost to the end, past the nice White House on the right and there is a driveway there. You walk past some old empty stone houses, not knowing what to expect. But what you find is wonderful! You are in a large two story contemporary house with a beautiful big modern kitchen with everything you need to cook. A deck faces the river, which is just feet away. Two modern bathrooms, a large master bedroom with a comfortable bed, another bedroom with two bunk beds and a double bed means a large group an be easily accommodated. But we were glad we had a very compact car for the drive. We were greeted with the most unexpected and generous spread of food: milk, bottled water, a bottle of wine, coffee tea, canned sardines and tuna, cheese, ham, bread, and a beautiful bowl of figs and plums fresh picked. Wonderful! And necessary. Be sure to buy groceries on your way there, perhaps in the town of Viseu if you are coming from Lisboa/Lisbon. From house, smaller market is a 20-25 minute drive away in Fornos de Algodres. We relaxed and walked around the village. It was very hot, but the house--not air conditioned--was cool and comfortable. The jacuzzi is solar heated so was not hot but looked refreshing given the weather. Beds was great.The house is also a wonderful base for exploring. You are close enough to the Spanish border, 60 minutes from the magical Sortelha and the more populated towns of Belmonte and Trancosa, 90 minutes from Monsanto--all historical villages with fortresses and centuries old houses. The hosts were very responsive at all times. We highly recommend this place to see a different side of Portugal and to find time to relax and unwind in a special location and wonderful home.

Beautiful, well equipped, peaceful, rustic and so much more

5 of 5
To say we had an great time is an understatement. If your looking for a beautiful oasis to relax in and to get away from the day to day stress this is a great option. We were a group of 8 with 2 seniors, 2 middle aged, 2 twenty somethings, and 2 children and all 8 had an amazing time. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and had all the emenites needed, a large kitchen and living room when we all wanted to be together and eat, cook, watch TV or chat, but when you wanted quiet time alone each bedroom was a nice getaway. The pool is beautiful and all ages enjoyed it, but certainly the children's screams of excitement were heard as they ran around (apologies to the hosts if they could be heard). The hosts provide bath towels, linens and even pool towels, my husband is the cook in the family and he found everything he needed for cooking indoors as well as outdoors on the griller. At night we slept with the windows and skylights open for an amazing cool breeze even on hot days. The views are spectacular of both the mountains and of the stars at night. The drive up the driveway to the house can be a challenge for an inexperienced driver or a car with a low clearing so keep that in mind, rent a car with a high clearing, but the host was extremely helpful with getting us to the top and bottom with loaded vehicles full of people and luggage. The small town at the bottom near the river has a lovely little grocery, cafe and butcher. If your looking for a night of no cooking and rather dine out there are 2 restaurants within 5-10 minutes, one in the hotel near the grocer (for fine dining) and one set aside down an incline before the small town (of coming from the house) for more casual setting. The hosts were close enough if we needed anything but not intrusive at all. We certainly will be back and plan to have more family vacations like this one and next time longer than 4-5 nights. Thank you for sharing your beautiful property with us.
