The space

Converted house with a perfect mix of comfort and style, while still keeping many of the old features and fixtures. Totally equipped with everything you need for your stay as well as extensive cooking. Owners where absolutely delightful and went way out of their way to accommodate our needs and special request. Private fruit and vegetable garden will provide for lots of your needs [depending on season, of course]. Excellent location allows for the exploration of Marvao region, national park and local attractions. Lots of day hikes around allowing for a couple of hours exploration as well as long days in the mountains. We are "regulars" to vacations in Portugal and find this region to be one of the very best for an "off the beaten track" vacations. The pool is on the small side and you share it with a good number of frogs and toads [delightful for the kids as well as for adults] - we found it to be great but one should know and be ready. House and its extensive grounds are totally quiet and you find yourself immersed in nature. A village 5 minutes drive from the house has a playa fluvial [a river bed converted to a beach with ll services] and it is a great way to end a hot summer day. We highly recommend the region, location and the property - thanks so much for having us as your first guests.

Come here to taste the countryside. It is very private and you will sleep well. Bring ear plugs tho as the local dogs get excited at full moon. The house is very pleasant and the area is serene. The supermarkets are only about 25mins away which is useful. The hosts are consider…

We had a wonderful time at Casa de Vigia. Stunning scenery and a much needed dip in the pool every day. The grounds were safe and our two-year old really enjoyed exploring. She particularly enjoyed the herd of goats who visited most days! Castelo de Vide and Marvão made for great…

Beautiful house, beautiful location. Francisco and his colleague were very nice and helpful. We loved it! We hope to return at a cooler time of year. Was high 30s during our stay and we wilted, but the pool made a big difference in helping us cool off.

We had a wonderful stay. The villa is in a very quiet area which is surrounded by fantastic countryside. I can honestly say that there wasn't a sound at night and only the occasional car during the day. The nearest town doesn't have much except for a basic bar if you fancy a drin…

We were made to feel very welcome and the host was very friendly and helpful. This is a lovely house, in a beautiful place, with lots of enjoyable walks, a great garden and vegetable plot, and near some great places to visit. The location is ideal for a relaxing and quiet time.

We had a great time at the house. It is well located if you want to be in a quiet and private big space. The view is fantastic. Nice fireplace to warm up after being in the pool. We would go back again. Thank you!
