This house was beautifully renovated from a ruin in 2014. Situated in the heart of the Portuguese nature park, furnished and fitted to a high standard. You will not be disappointed. Sumptuously spacious, modern and superbly comfortable. Thick walls keep it cool in summer, but warm in the winter. Surrounded by cork, olives and oak, the house was protected by these deciduous trees when the fire of October 2017 hit the area. You can still see burned pine across the valley. There is excellent Wifi.

The space
Please note children under 12 stay for €5 per night, payable on arrival. A Cot, bedding and freshly washed baby toys are provided on request. Please pay €8 for this addition to cover laundry costs only.

This property won't feel like a rental because it's just too lovely. You will feel, 'at home' here. The house is gorgeous inside and fully equipped for family living. During the winter, the whole house is very warm, with very comfortable sofas and a large well stocked open fire as well as wall radiators.
In the summer, because the walls are thick and every window and door has additional mosquito blinds, you won't feel hot or be bothered by insect bites. If you have little children, there is a high chair and cot. (Please give me notice for the cot to be prepared) I add age appropriate toys such as lego and a large brio train set.
If you like cooking, the kitchen is properly equipped for just that with additional gadgets for juicing, blending, crockpots, coffee maker etc. Bed linen is always cotton or Egyptian cotton. Both beds are new. The second bedroom has a large brand new bed and mattress July 2017. Curtains are heavy and lined to keep out the sun and to keep the house warm in winter. There is satalite TV and wifi. The open plan lounge and kitchen are very comfortable and has wonderful views of our valley.

Where you’ll be

Pardieiros, Coimbra, Portugal

When the fire storm passed through central Portugal, our small community took a terrifying hit. We have become very close and very supportive. We know every family who lost everything they owned. You will be welcomed here with such gratitude. The local Portuguese have been burned too and the love and care we feel for each other is something quite special.

You can walk to the waterfall Fraga da Pena in less than 20 minutes from the house. The waterfall pool is warmest late evening!
All the wonderful walks around us now reveal many previously hidden terraces and steps as the deep undergrowth has burned away. However now, a year on, everywhere is greening up and the undergrowth has recovered . Autumn has arrived again and it is beautiful here!

We are a family living in Central Portugal. We are both nutritionists and hair analysts. We live a very busy life with our profession, organic vegetable gardens, many hens, ducks, a dog and cats. Our youngest child is 3 years old, so late airbnb arrivals are difficult for us!!
