  • Beautiful place, loads of nice touches inside and out, well equipped, very quick responses from Hazel to questions. Bella Vista was everything we envisaged and more. Felt like we were on retreat as other than food, everything provided for in the most peaceful and beautiful setting. As a place to escape to its perfect and we both said that its one of the few places we'd hope to return to. Thank you for helping make it an unforgettable holiday.

    nicola2017-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Hazel's directions made it easy to find Bela Vista and the views justify the name. The unexpected and generous 'welcome pack' she provided made me feel...welcome. Bela Vista is extremely well appointed, private, and a relaxing place to be.

    richard2015-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Bela Vista is a stunning cottage with incredible views. Easy access and Hazel direction are spot on. We were made welcome with a warm house as Hazel made sure to fire the wood burner prior to our arrival. We will definitely be back, thank you so much Hazel and Adam.

    A Junior2015-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • This place is absolutely magical. If you are worried you might want to leave your normal life behind and move to Portugal, then don't stay here. We didn't want to leave. Hazel provided a cot and in addition left some toys for our two year old which he loved. We had a wonderful few days. Would absolutely recommend.

  • We had an extraordinary experience at Danielle and Marc's home. These good people opened their home, their lives in conversation and their kitchen and dining table to us and we ate beautifully, talking into the night. The house was amazing, modern, with views of the sunset over the hills. Danielle took us on a hike through the surrounding villages. Marc made us the most delicious meals we had in all of Portugal. This was a air b and b experience we will never forget.

  • Dear Dani and Marc, It was a real pleasure to be hosted in your place for a three nights. If only we will be back to Portugal we are definitely planning to visit you once again! Coja area is very beautiful and peaceful rural part of Portugal. It has a lot to offer: stone villages, beautiful paths for hiking or traveling by car, vicinity of mountains and most importantly - it S not as touristic as the coast. House of Dani and Marc is beautifully located on the hill above Coja with a beautifuly terrace exposed to south-west with an amazing view and unforgetable sunsets! It is a piece of amazing architecture and it is a must to see and experience for an architecture freak! It has all necessary facilities starting with a swimming pool and finishing on every single item needed when traveling with a baby! You will definitely be amazed by that! Also Dani and Marc and their dog Azul were playing often wit our kid who loved them and we had some minutes for ourselfs! Thanks for that! After arrival we were wholeheartedly welcomed by our hosts. Dani and Marc are lovely and very kind people and once you're they guest - you will feel like at home and you will feel like no one has ever took care of yourself so much and so professionaly :) it's kind of something you learn along your life and Dani and Marc mastered this ability perfectly. Info about area, local people, places worth to visit and plenty of interesting stories - that is what you will get once you are there! Completely different story is the art of eating you will experience. The very best food which beats 2 star Michelin restaurants at the very beginning. Both Dani and Marc are great cooks and enjoy it a lot. it's kind of another must to try as it is difficult to describe with words. If you consider staying in Coja area - there is no better place! People, food, place, ambience - don't hesitate, just enjoy! Thank you for a great time! Basia, Miki and Mat

    Mat2015-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • Dani & Marc have a extraordinary house on the top of the hill surrounded by a wonderful garden. They make you feel welcome from the very beginning. Every morning your day starts with a delightful breakfast including a magnificent view! During the rest of the day they make an enormous effort to make your stay as pleasant as possible. They have a lot of knowledge about the region so they can help you plan your activities. We would recommend this place highly!

    Anaïs2016-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Actually it is extremely difficult to find the right words for this experience that my girlfriend and I had at Dani&Marc's House! All in all everybody should meet those lovely people and especially their warmhearted dog! There should be an extra star, because five stars can not even reflect how satisfied we have been at this beautiful place! We highly recommend Dani&Marc as Airbnb hosts!!!

    Tine2017-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • Dani and Marc are the most hospitable people we have ever met, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with them feeling at home instantly! Having dinner at their table is a true feast, we savoured their delicious cooking worthy of a star restaurant and delighted in their choice of Portuguese wines. And let’s not forget to mention the yummy breakfast each morning while enjoying the fabulous view. We also profited from Dani and Marc’s extensive knowledge of the beautiful countryside around Coja and Portugal in general - we even received helpful suggestions from Dani about good spots to eat in Lisbon before we even met them in Coja(URL HIDDEN)As to the house, what can we say that is not already mentioned by other guests… Please include us in your will and leave us your absolutely fabulous house, we will be ready to move in anytime!!! xx Ingmar & Denise

  • Casinha de pedra is a magical place. Perfect for those seeking tranquility and nature harmoniously combined. Bruno is very good host, and we could enjoy privacy and peace we needed on our holiday. Ideal!

    Cris2016-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Our experience in the "Casinha de Pedra" was a perfect airbnb experience, "Total 5 Stars"!!! Bruno is an excellent host, ready to help you with any issue or info you may need. The house was absolutely renewed a month ago, it has excellent conditions, very cosy, full of sweet details, perfect for a couple, and perfectly located a few metes from the magical Rio Alva. It´s that kind of place so well located, that you can go for a adventure, relaxing or romantic weekend, or you can even stay for weeks as there are so many beautiful attractions on that region of Portugal. Tracking, bicycle riding, jogging, swimming, river sports and visiting very interesting local attractions are some of the possibilities you can explore. Bruno also offers very affordable bicycle or kayak rental, we had great fun riding kayak through the Rio Alva, and we´ll surely come back someday to continue exploring that region. Thank you Bruno!

    Rodrigo2017-04-06T00:00:00Z
  • bruno's place is located at a very scenic and secluded area that offers 1-4h walking trails (bring long pants and good shoes due to the undergrowth) and swimming in the dammed up alva river (which has excellent water quality). bruno is very helpful and his place is compact but offers everything you need. if you need wifi, you can go to the bar/restaurant next door at any time, which also serves great food. we enjoyed our stay a lot, thank you bruno

    Michael2017-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • bruno is a nice guy who gives us a warm welcome. the cottage is small but charming near the river, a watermill and a small waterfall. the view is lovely

  • Great guy. Very welcoming, just feels like it all yours....

    Niall2016-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Aleija, Bruno's wife, was lovely and provided us with additional cooking equipmemt (pans) on our request. The tiny house is a perfect little spot for a couple, in the middle of s small paradise with a waterfall that can be swum in and a watermill, the mill is a bit rusty so a bit noisy in the night though! There is a nice restaurant in close range, not open on sunday and monday ( when we were there)but we had a great dinner on saturday. If you want the paradise strictly for yourself we advise to book in weekdays, because the locstion is also populsr with the Portugese in the weekend. We had a great time, can recommend it.

    Jiske2016-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • The Casinha de Pedra is more charming than expected. It is a great location to just relax, breath in the fresh air and reenergize, or you can be adventurous and take advantage of the hiking routes. Situated near a natural park, with a small dammed river at your front door, where you can go swimming and take in the sun. Jose and Ginette Montreal, Canada

  • No tuvimos el placer de conocer a Maria porque estaba de viaje, pero en todo momento estuvo muy atenta con nosotros y resolvió todas nuestras dudas por email rápidamente. El apartamento es muy grande, está lleno de detalles y decorado con mucho gusto. Estuvimos 5 personas y fue como estar en nuestra casa. El apartamento es muy tranquilo, espacioso y tiene de todo, y está en una muy buena zona, cerca de supermercados, bares y panaderías. Si volvemos por esa zona, sin dudarlo volveremos a este apartamento. Gracias por todo Maria.

    The apartment at Casa do Pisao is the ground floor of our home, a granite farmhouse, set in 4+ hectares of mixed woodland and terraces overlooking the water. The property has a pool, and offers the use of fishing equipment, 2 mountain bikes and 2 kayaks.
    The farmhouse Quinta do Pisao sits on the side of a valley, overlooking a tributary of the River Mondego. The apartment "Casa do Pisao" is on the garden level of the main house, with a small terrace reserved for guest use.
  • We had a good time staying at the apartment. It is well equipped, nicely furnished and really cosy. We had some butter, eggs and jam in the fridge as well as essentials like oil, coffee, salt and spices, etc which is not to be taken for granted. The property is so beautiful! There are several terraces and different placed to sit and relax. You can go for walks starting from the house along the river and can discover the area. You will definately need a car to get there and to go shopping etc. But the remote location makes this place so calm and relaxing.

    Nicole2016-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely spot and lovely hosts. House, garden, pool, view, it is all perfect. You could not wish for more. The only regret we have is, we didn't stay longer.

    Peter2015-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and surrounding. You can feel that Claudia & Leon love what they do. The whole property is very well maintained. We got a warm and friendly welcome and at our arrival we had fresh organic eggs, homemade jam and some butter in the fridge. We got some more organic veggier from the garden and really enjoyed our stay. The pool as well as all sitting and relaxing areas are perfect to just enjoy and relax. The BBQ was set up and we used them every day. Claudia and Leon always respect our privacy and it was like having everything for us. Great place and location!

    Ralf2016-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • What a magnificent place to stay! The accomodation exceeded all expections. Claudia and Leon gave us a warm welcome and good guidance. The accomodation was superb: fully equiped kitchen (with 'homegrown grapes, vigs and marmelade in our fridge), very comfortable and large bed, luxurious bathroom and cosy living area. That what topped it all: the view and environment. During our stay we had the feeling we had the whole place to ourselves. Claudia and Leon respected our privacy, but were also very helpfull if needed. Definitly a place to visit if you like comfort, nature, the typical Portugese country live and everything it has to offer!

    Belinda2015-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect place to relax and hide from dailey stress! Beautiful accomodation and amazing landscape! Thanks a lot for Claudia hospitality!

    Paulo2017-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • After a wonderful stay here nearly 12 months ago, it was a no-brainer to come back again for an even longer stay. Casa do Pisao is an utterly wonderful place to remove yourself from the hustle of daily life, and allow the beautiful surroundings to completely relax you, even if for a few days. Claudia and Leon did their utmost once again to make ourselves feel comfortable and relaxed, and we even dragged ourselves away from the pool to use their bikes and kayaks. The location is nestled in the central Portuguese mountains; there's a decent couple of supermarkets about 10 mins drive away should you need it (the pastries from Lidl are great), and is also a great base for exploring further afield by car. The studio is well appointed with plenty of pots, pans and utensils to cook with. Tip: do your shopping before you arrive, so you can get settled into one of the sun loungers with a good book straight away on arrival! Big thanks to the hosts for another amazing stay.

    Paul2016-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Can not recommend enough!!! Leon and Claudia are wonderful hosts, friendly but unobtrusive and very generous with their vegetable garden and eggs. The property is exactly how it looks in the photos and the views are breathtaking! Car is essential but roads are quiet and it's easy to get to the shops! However you could easily never leave this place as it has everything you could hope for!

  • We spent the most wonderful days in Petra house. The house is perfect for a family stay and magical, with warm and beautiful details and has the most wonderful outdoor space. Petra was so kind and let us use her pool she and her husband were always so helpful, nice and kind. Arganil has wonderful places to visit and keep everyone busy. It`s one of those places that stays to your heart and we will for sure repeat.

    Daniela2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, as in pictures if not better. Very friendly, Petra and her husband greated us like family. Kitchen is fully equipped, quiet, beautiful landscapes and located in small village. Location might be remote for certain, but for those who wants to experiment Portugal in a small village, its perfect. I would recommend and go there again!

    Olivier2017-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • Petra and Bert's house is very charmant and sweet. They were great hosts, very nice and friendly. The place is very quiet and perfect for some peaceful days in nature. We've travelled with our 3-year old grandaughter and considered the house a bit unsafe for small children, specially upstairs. Nevertheless, we've loved it.

    Margarida2016-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • Petra and Bert are very nice host, very welcoming and very friendly, available to help or to answer any question about what to do in the area. The Country house is cute with its wood-burning stove and interior decoration. If you like nature, rustic farm house and very cosy, this place is for you. If you prefer, a bit more modern accomodation but arranged with taste, the new guesthouse they are busy finishing should fulfill your wishes. The shower water was sometimes a bit cold for a few seconds from time to time, but generally that was not an issue. The place is still a bit unsafe for small children but all is okay if you watch them and if you don't let them alone upstairs. The kitchen was well equiped. The countryside surroundings are great. We enjoyed a lot our short stay by them.

    Frederic2017-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you, Petra for all the warmth, kindness and beauty you provided us. I will never forget this experience and will definitely come back to the amazing little cottage. Congratulations for your work there! It is a house with soul and many stories. Loved the little bees who welcomed us every morning and all the delicate nature surrounding the place. As an artist, I highly recommend it to all those nature loving people and all those who have sensitive hearts. I even produced a photographic series there. An enchanted and inspiring place, no doubt.

    Cristina2017-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • In general, we loved our stay in Petra and Bert's Country House! The negative point (if there is any) is the access to the house, it was made by country roads (but Bert told us it was going to be tarred soon!)! So...soon it will not be a problem anymore! The house is located in a small village surrounded by nature and a few miles away from Arganil (supermarket, pharmacies, etc), so it is isolated but has everything nearby. Ideal to spend some quality time in the woods or relaxing by the fireplace! The house is even more beautiful than it seems in the photos! It is perfect for a couple stay. The bedroom and bathroom are in a beautiful loft upstairs. Below it there is an open space with the kitchen, dinner table and a small bed to relax. The house has everything it is needed to spend a great time! I would like to thank Petra and Bert for the hospitality, joy and all the help provided! Hope to see them in a near future!

    Guilherme2017-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Het charmante huisje ligt op loopafstand van het eigen huis van Petra en is van alle gemakken voorzien. Je hoeft maar erg weinig in te pakken, alles wat je nodig zou kunnen hebben lijkt aanwezig. Buiten zijn de ligbedden en de tafel heerlijke plekken om een deel van de dag/avond door te brengen. Er is de mogelijkheid mee te eten in Petra's huis waar bedandbreakfast-gasten verblijven, maar wij hebben daar geen gebruik van gemaakt. De keuken in het huisje biedt alles om zelf te koken, fijne pannen, voldoende servies en (hoera) mooie wijnglazen. Voor boodschappen moet je 20 minuten rijden, maar dan is er ook volop keuze. Hetzelfde geldt voor uitstapjes ook daarbij is een auto onmisbaar. Petra en haar partner zijn leuke spontane mensen die met zorg het huisje hebben ingericht en je het gevoel geven welkom te zijn.

    jan2017-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Os 4 dias que passamos foram fantásticos, Petra e Bert são um casal extremamente acolhedor, puseram-nos a vontade logo que chegamos e ajudaram-nos sempre que precisamos. A casa é lindíssima, decorada com muito gosto, melhor ainda do que na fotografia e equipada para todas as eventualidades. O sitio é isolado o suficiente para desligar e descomprimir e ao mesmo tempo está perto de vários sítios de interesse. Um sitio a voltar.

  • A really nice house with a fantastic view in the picturesque and sleepy village. You will need a car to go sightseeing but the food available within a short drive on almost deserted mountain roads is superb. I wholehearedly recommend staying here in Soito.

    Andy2017-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Firstly good communication from Antonio and directions. We have an great few days, the house is charming with the most incredible view, it is finished to a high standard. We saw the sunrise over the mountain. The terrace was fantastic for star watching and the afternoon sun. Natalie who welcomed us could not be more friendly and helpful. We were sad to leave.

  • We were looking for a place to explore the local mountains and nearby Piodao and this place was a perfect fit. The place is stunning and is in an equally stunning village. The drive from the place to Piodao was jaw dropping and would recommend anyone to stay here if they want to visit Piodao. The host was excellent, everything was great. My only heads up is that I think the inside of the house looks better in person than the images listed!

There are ample opportunities to take walks in the surrounding forests, by simply stepping out of the door, into the valleys or the forests surrounding the apartment. May brings splashes of purple lavender and yellow and white daisies, which cover the fields.The climate is especially good for the masses of gorgeous roses which adorn virtually every Portuguese garden in this region of central Portugal during the summer months. At the start of summer you will hear the call of the cuckoo in the valley. The night-time summer skies are star-studded, while the silence is interspersed by crickets chirping, and the song of the frogs in the stream below. Watch the moon rise over the hills, when it's full moon. Guests love the crystal clear nights (telescope provided on request) and the beautiful call of the owls in the valley. Listen to nightingales and even wild boar as they go about their business. In the distance you'll hear the deep, peaceful sound of church bells ringing. Come and watch the 'shooting stars' in the clear night skies in August and make your wish!

    The area is beautiful and serene, total peace and tranquillity abound here. There are many interesting places to visit, within the region.
  • House of Stars is a very comfortable place to stay in a beautiful spot. This self-contained flat has it's own private sun terrace in a herb garden, with a view over the valley. All you can hear is the sound of birds and if you listen very carefully, the rushing of the river down below. The breakfast starter pack provided was excellent, as were the sight-seeing tips. The place was immaculately clean with all linen and towels included. It was wonderful to get to know our warm and welcoming hosts Gillian, Ingo and Ingo. We would give more than 5 stars if it were possible and we will definitely be coming back here! Abi & Pete

  • We had a great stay with Gillian and Ingo. They did a very nice job restoring the home that we stayed in, the one they live in, and are now working on a neighboring place. We thoroughly enjoyed the location as it was peaceful and off the beaten track (you access it by a dirt road through the forest which had us second guessing the address on our GPS when we first arrived). That being said it was still quite close to a couple decent sized towns where we got our groceries and it made a great base from which to explore a number of historic sites all within about an hours drive. However, for us the real joy of this place was recharging our batteries and spending time with Ingo and Gillian. They were both a wealth of knowledge about the local area and very well travelled so we had lots of engaging conversations over a drink in the evenings. A big part of travelling is being immersed in the local cultural and seeing how things tick on a day to day basis and our stay here made that possible. Thank you Gillian and Ingo for opening up your home and being such exceptional hosts. Until next time - be it in Canada or Portugal! Marcus and Gail

  • We loved our stay at the House of Stars and it was certainly one of the highlights of our holiday in Portugal. Gillian and Ingo are wonderful hosts. It is amazing to see how much time, effort and love they have put into this very special place.

    Aino2014-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible house at an incredible background. Gillian and Ingo have made themselves a wonderful and cosy place where every detail is just amazing. We enjoyed our stay there very much: the apartment, the stars at the courtyard and walking through the eucalyptus forest. Gillian and Ingo helps with everything and have a lot of interesting recommendations on what to visit. We look forward to meeting them again!/// Gillian e Ingo han construído una casa maravillosa en medio de la montaña. Lo mejor el patio y sus millones de estrellas y pasear por los bosques de eucaliptus. Para excursiones tienen todo tipo de ideas. Volveremos pronto!

    Luisa2012-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Gillian and Ingo were lovely hosts -- the home was very nice and the gardens were beautiful! We enjoyed our stay very much, and appreciated being in the countryside of Portugal while also having access to towns and the nearby Coimbra.

    Rebecca2013-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at the "House of Stars" for three nights at the beginning of June. Gillian, Ingo Sr. and Ingo Jr. were wonderful hosts, and by the time we (reluctantly) had to leave we felt like they had become our friends. The guesthouse which they rebuilt from a ruin with their own hands is a marvel of efficiency and comfort and is ideal for a couple. It backs to the garden with young trees and wild flowers, and a wine-covered terrace perfect for contemplating unobstructed views of the forest-covered hills beyond. The location provided a good base for exploring Serra da Estrela (don't miss the village of Piodao!), Cohimbra, and Bucaco palace and gardens... that was our itinerary but there are many other interesting places within easy reach by car. At the end of each day it was nice to return to the place that, for a short time, became our home away from home. We hope to return some day, and see our wonderful hosts again.

    Ian2014-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • House of Stars was a magical place and Gillian and Ingo were wonderful hosts. What we appreciated so much about the place, the entirety of which they restored themselves, is how clearly it is a family labor of love, filled with personal touches—from beautiful paintings by Gillian hanging on the walls to the amazing flower and herb garden designed by their son. The feeling of warmth extended to the kind welcome we received, including a bottle of champagne to help celebrate our honeymoon, and their generous treatment throughout, even when we accidentally went off with the keys! We felt truly cared for, and reading all the glowing reviews here, we were not alone. Gillian and Ingo clearly make everyone feel that way! The location was simply breathtaking, looking out over a lovely peaceful valley, which was full of all different kinds of birds. The garden, complete with fruit trees and a grape arbor, is so wonderful to relax in during the day, and at night you realize why it is called the House of Stars…the sky was glowing with them! Gillian had many recommendations about where to eat and what to do—during our stay we ate some of the most delicious grilled chicken of our entire lives at a local restaurant and enjoyed a hike in the mountains and taking a dip at a local swimming pool. The drives around the place have sweeping peaceful views. Next time we will come back and stay for longer! A truly special place.

    Annie2015-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • It has been a pleasure to stay at House of Stars for Easter Holidays! A tiny little village in the middle of the woods, total silence and the incredible smell of flowers was all we needed to come back to the city fully energized! Gillian welcomed us with white whine and local cheese, a big smile and great recomendations for a lovely stay. At first we thought we would be cold since the weather was not so nice, and there was no heater except for the chimeney. We soon realized that the chimeney, the super confy duvet and the house coats provided were more than enough for a very confortable and warm stay. We won't forget the incredible breakfasts in the patio nor the relaxing reading time near the chimeney! Thank you so much!

  • When I first booked this place I didn't know what was awaiting us! Can't describe how beautiful the location was, Soito is a beautiful tiny village and everyone we met there was very welcoming and warm hearted! Beautiful walks through the pines and waterfalls.. Definitely will come back, fell in love with the place. Liliana's house was perfect for us, very spacious and nicely decorated, very comfortable and great for cooking. Thanks for hosting us Natalie, we had a great time at pizza night too!

    Marlene2016-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Very beautiful and peaceful place. Everything was perfect, from the location to the warm welcome to the comfortable house. Highly recommend.

  • A house located in the peaceful Schist Village of Soito, close to river beaches.

    Rita2015-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • A Casa da Amoreira e a aldeia do Soito superaram as nossas expectativas. Trata-se do local ideal para quem procura sossego, descanso e o sentido do autêntico. Acordar e tomar as refeiçóes em frente a montanhas verdejantes e uma amoreira cheia de andorinhas é um previlégio. A Casa da Amoreira tem todas as comodidades de uma casa moderna, sem perder o encanto das casas de xisto. Altamente recomendável.

    Cristina2015-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Quel endroit magnifique dans l'arrière-pays montagneux du Portugal! Belle petite maison bien équipé dans un petit village charmant. Natalie nous a bien reçu et les directions sont claires. Il faut noter que c'est quand même loin des services (marché le plus près à 30 minutes) et les routes sont superbes mais peuvent faire peur à certains.

    Grégoire2016-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Nuestra estancia ha sido genial. La casa tiene de todo, lavadora, lavavajillas, cacerolas, platos, hasta secador de pelo. Las camas son muy cómodas, se duerme genial. Las vistas son increibles, todo lleno de eucaliptos,pinos y arboles frutales. Aunque la aldea es pequeña, hay bastante gente joven y todos han sido muy majos con nosotros. Seguro que volveremos!... Destacar que Nataly es un amor, super dulce, tiene una energia especial. Muchas gracias por todo.

    Raquel2017-04-16T00:00:00Z

    Quiet village with schist houses and welcoming inhabitants, where we intend to be a small place of choice for your travels.
  • Beautiful house at an amazing place, great to relax or visit other locations. Natalino and Teresa are the best hosts I have ever seen, very welcoming and helpful. I hope to come back!

    Kristyna 2016-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic week at the Casa do Vale. It's a very special and peaceful place and the house itself is very comfortable. All amenities that you might need are included and Natalino and Teresa are the best hosts we have ever encountered on Airbnb. We were a bit unsure about what to take as the location is quite remote but when we arrived, there was a wonderful selection of delicious food and drinks ready for us. There's lots to see and do in the area and we would definitely come back again.

    Sandro2015-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Casa do Vale was fantastic. Natalino and Teresa welcomed us personally with nice food (local cheese, sausage and the wonderful nata de leite) and drinks (wine and port). They are very charming people with a great heart. The next day they surprised us with home made soup and a nice desert ! Also the house itself pleased us very much; it is located in the very quiet village of Bocado, with a stunning view on the surrounding woods and hills. The silence of the place makes it perfect to get fully disconnected from the daily rush we live in. And the wild pigs came very close to the house during the night. A great place to stay !

    Alain2015-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect peaceful getaway and the sweetest hosts we ever had! Beautiful, spacious house with epic view and stocked with everything you might need and more. Would definitely go back to explore the region some more and have some more of Teresa's anazing fish soup! Thank you!

    Laura2017-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time staying in Teresa and Natalino's refurbished schist house. They couldn't have been kinder or more friendly. From the pastries, sausage, cheese, bread and wine waiting for us to the figs and grapes from their garden, we felt very welcomed. The house is comfortable and the view lovely. We enjoyed walking in the area and the drive we took through the hills, stopping for lunch in one of the small towns. It's a beautiful area.

    Katie2016-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Teresa and Natalino are very nice people! They will do everything to make you feel at home. We had a great stay and will definitely will come back one day. The house is very big and clean and has a great view. We enjoyed ourselves bbq-ing at the patio and loved the welcome appetizers and the soup and dessert that Natalino and Teresa cooked for us. It was the best fish soup we've ever tasted :) We could really relax and enjoy the quiteness of nature.

    Hermannus2016-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • Above all Teresa and Natalino are wonderful hosts and only to know them was an amazing experience. They welcomed us with lots of warmth and love. The apartment was very clean and had everything you need, including cheeses, cakes, water beers and many other surprises. So it's true that this is a tiny village and the internet communication is not great, but it is also the exact advantages of the place and for those who want to travel in this area is a wonderful spot to sleep and go for walks and trips in the area. Also the apartment itself has a wonderful view and the value for money is simply excellent. In short, strongly recommend

    Etiel2017-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a lovely weekend at Casa do Vale. Our hosts, Teresa, Natalino and Onil, the dog, were very friendly and tireless in making us feel welcome. The listing is everything we were hoping for and more. The house is very comfortable, with all the amenities you can expect. Set in a little quiet village overlooking the mountains, this is the perfect spot for a relaxing retreat. Close by, you can enjoy the wonders of the beautiful mountains, either walking or by car, great food and picturesque villages.

  • El alojamiento de Luís nos gustó mucho, la casa es muy bonita, reformada y limpia, está situada en un pueblecito muy pequeño y es todo muy tranquilo y agradable. Luís fue muy accesible y comunicativo en todo momento y nos ayudó a llegar al pueblo donde nos recibieron unos familiares suyos muy amables. Recomendamos el alojamiento para descansar tranquilamente unos días, así como para realizar viajes de naturaleza y/o rutas por los pueblos cercanos y ciudades como Coimbra.

    Durga2017-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Quando estivemos na casa do Luís, o interior já estava totalmente renovado, com parte do exterior em remodelações, o que não perturbou a nossa estadia. Adoramos a decoração interior. A casa tem um misto de antigo com moderno, e mostra que o Luís tem muito bom gosto para a remodelar. Tem uma varanda simpática, que convida a olhar para as estrelas. O Luís foi fenomenal. Muito responsivo e simpático, notando-se que quis garantir que tivemos uma boa estadia. O local é isolado. Vale pelo silêncio, mas atenção que tivemos grande falta de rede móvel (MEO), se bem que ainda se consegue algum sinal. No geral, uma excelente surpresa!

O Luís foi muito atencioso e preocupado com o nosso bem estar, garantindo que tudo se encontrava como desejávamos. A senhora que nos recebeu foi extremamente simpática, também. Ficámos muito contentes, pois sentimo-nos em casa, com um ambiente tão familiar e acolhedor, numa aldeia sossegada, com uma excelente vista.

  • I kind of fell in love with Isabel's cute and quirky townhouse. They are renovating it bit-by-bit so it is a sweet blend of old and new: There's no hot tap in the kitchen so you boil a pot of water on the stove while the morning sun streams through the (double-glazed) french doors in the kitchen. The bathroom has a super-low ceiling and you'll probably have to crouch if you're tall. My little boy loved it - it's a bathroom built for him! And we loved it too, it's just as charming as the rest of the place. The beds are really comfortable (I mean seriously comfortable, probably the best sleep of our trip) and everything is impeccably clean. There's a bar opposite the house and they love to party. It didn't bother me at all but if you're a light sleeper take some ear plugs (or go out and say hi to the locals!) Coja is a great spot - the river beach is about 7 minutes walk from the house. Keep the river on your right and look for the sign that says Camping Tourismo to find the beach. It's lovely, and the restaurant on its banks is a nice place for lunch. The village has everything you need - mini-mart, pharmacy, and a village square where the kids can run around and €6 will buy you a couple of beers for each adult & a toasted sandwich. Highly recommend Isabel's hospitality (she lives locally so it's very easy to drop her an SMS if you have questions), her cool place, and Coja in general.

    Imogen2017-05-02T00:00:00Z

  • A Casinha do Arco é mimosa e muito limpa. Tem todos os apetrechos necessários e a funcionar. Os quartos são confortáveis, abrigando quatro ou cinco pessoas. A casa de banho teve sempre água bem quentinha e a dona forneceu uma boa quantidade de toalhas. A praia de Coja fica a cerca de 600m da casa e é agradável, tem nadador salvador, casa de banho e um bar muito agradável e em conta. A vila de Coja é pequenina mas tem tudas as lojas necessárias incluíndo uma farmácia. Coja e arredores têm outros pontos turísticos, tal como a aldeia de Piodão que é uma verdadeira beleza. O único problema foi a existência de um café frequentado por pessoas que gostavam de festejar até mais tarde...

    Paula2017-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Ya conocíamos el pueblo. Con respecto a la estancia, hemos encontrado lo que estábamos buscando, una casa muy bien situada, con unas vistas maravillosas al río Alva. Es cierto que la casa necesita algunas mejoras, aunque a nosotros para dos noches ha satisfecho nuestras necesidades. Hasta el bar que está enfrente nos ha venido de lujo, con gente muy agradable y hospitalaria. Esperamos volver.

    Lourdes 2017-09-10T00:00:00Z

    Our quinta is situated in central Portugal, near the river Alva, between the cities of Coimbra and Viseu, at the foot of the mountain Serra da Estrela. The house has a special atmosphere because of its history and all the old details. The house is in an enclosed garden Our B & B can be reached by car in 2 hours from Porto and 3 hours from Lisbon. From Salamanca, it is only 3 hours away. My room is suitable for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers and families (with children).
    Our home is very special for the region because the house was built by the architect Marques Abreu. We were lucky to buy it from falling furniture so the house has its own character. In addition, the bathroom is fully equipped.
  • Casa das Eiras is a hidden gem, a beautiful renovated manor house in a small village. Myriam and Henk did a great job refurbishing not only the house but also the lovely garden, harmoniously combining the old and the new. Expect to see delicate tiles, carved stones and stained glass. The B&B on the first floor is comfortable, luminous, with traditional furniture, cool and quiet. The breakfast served in the balcony is abundant and tasty. So, if one is looking for a great stay in the countryside, combining tradition and quietness with plenty to see in the region (river beaches, schist villages, waterfalls,etc.), this is the place! Last but not least, you'll be welcome by great hosts:) Thank you, M&H!

  • We had a wonderful stay. Mirjam and Henke are very nice and helpful. The house is magnificent, recently renovated and very quiet. We had excellent breakfasts served under the tree in the garden. The house is in a small village, not that easy to find, but Mirjam sent us precise information to reach the place. There is a good restaurant at 5 min drive,and nice beaches at the river not far. A very enjoyable stay, highly recommended

  • Die Casa das Eiras ist ein Ort der Ruhe. Myriam und Henk haben mit viel Feingefühl und Herzblut einem alten portugieseschen Herrenhaus seinen Glanz zurück gegeben und dabei Altes und Moderne perfekt kombiniert. Myriam und Henk sind fantastische Gastgeber, bei denen kein Wunsch offen bleibt. Das Haus liegt in einem kleinen ruhigen abgeschiedenen Ort in den Bergen. Mit dem Auto sind Coimbra sowie Naturausflugsziele gut erreichbar. Wir empfehlen ein Bad im nahegelegenen Fluss, ein Besuch des Wasserfalls oder einfach den Tag im schönen Garten zu verweilen. Restaurants und Supermärkte finden sich in näherer Umgebung.

    Spacious, sunny and welcoming family. Equipped with all modern comforts and furnished with vintage furniture and homemade items. Both rooms have a view of the surrounding garden and forest. Located at the end of a small and quiet farming. In our village there is no through traffic. Near refreshing rivers, picturesque villages and culturally interesting cities: Piodao, Coimbra, Viseu, Aveiro, .... The pool is scheduled for July 1, 2017.
  • During one of our shared dinners on our 10-night-stay at Petra and Berts wonderful home, Petra explained: "We want to have a nice life here, meet nice people and share." That describes the warm and wellcoming atmosphere that overwhelms you when you open the door. We felt like visiting friends. In their huge new house you find a big kitchen, a nice patio, a big livingroom, kamins, bathroom with bathtube... and a lot of light! And soon even a swimming pool! Everything is very tastefull and warm furnished, a mix of portuguese and belgian retro style. The house is located at the end of a village, next to the woods with a beautiful view of the sunset - only the holes in the street might hurt your car. Petra and Bert are really joyfull hosts, happy to live their romantic vision of life, love and work - so it is easy to get in a wonderfull holiday mood. During our dinners we had wonderful conversations about Portugal, Food, Love and all the important things in life. The dog and the cat they have are well behaved and just cute. Our 1 year old became friends with the dog (thou it was only because of the food she gave ...) Petra has a lot of very good suggestions for hiking- and biking tours nearby, beaches at the river, local markets ... or you just rest in the shadow of the patio, smell the orangetree and forget the rest of the world. And when Petra cooks for you - you will probably miss your flight back.

    Marianne2017-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • Petra and Bert went above and beyond to make our time with them memorable. Bert even drove to find us when we got lost. They are perfect hosts, with a beautiful home, in a great location, offering excellent food, and a pool too. What more could you want? Stayed three nights, didn't want to leave.

  • Bon accueil et rapide, maison propre, terrain propre, piscine propre, espace barbecue couvert, même après une douche on peut se le permettre car le barbecue est bien ventilé, bonne connexion wifi, juste un petit détail la pelouse est jolie mais nous ne pouvons pas l'utiliser car arbres fruitiers (kaki, clémentine, citron vert) donc risque de chute de fruit, j'ai un bébé qui n'a pas pu faire du quatre pattes sur la pelouse car il y a quelque dalles en pierre un peu partout dans la pelouse donc juste pour la vue mais c'est plaisant d'avoir de la verdure. Hôte toujours disponible et fait le nécessaire pour votre confort, nous avons eu une rupture de gaz, le remplacement de la bouteille a été fait le lendemain matin sans problème. Prévoir un attrape mouche ;) mais aucun moustique. Endroit calme et jolie, nous avons mis de la musique dans le jardin les après midi, les voisins ont été tolérant, aucune remarque. Pour les courses vous avez Lidl et Intermarché à 6km. Merci pour ce séjour

  • Nous avons passé 15 jours dans la maison. Nous étions 4 adultes, 5 enfants, 1 bébé et un chien. Nous avons été déçu de constater une fois sur place qu il nous manquait une chambre car d après la proprietaire (qui parle bien français)il y avait une invasion de guêpes. Nous nous sommes donc contentés du RDC avec les 3 chambres. La maman de Fernando nous a mis des matelats à disposition afin d installer les 5 enfants dans la même chambre. La maison est fonctionnelle avec 2 sdb (une 3ème douche à l exterieur ), lave linge, lave vaisselle et grand frigo. Nous pouvions rentrer les voitures. Il y a un portail électrique avec une télécommande et un chenil. La piscine est agréable il manque peut être une sécurité enfant en bas des marches afin d empêcher les plus petits d y accéder. La maison est à 40 mn de Coimbra et 1h30 de Porto au final on a fait pas mal de voiture pour les visites.

  • Formidable séjour dans cette maison où nous sommes restés 2 semaines! Nous étions 7 personnes, 4 adultes et 3 enfants et il y a tout pour se sentir bien. Nous avons passé la majeur partie du temps à l'extérieur avec la piscine, la terrasse et la pièce aménagée à côté avec tv où nous pouvions déjeuner etc... La ville est très bien située, on est à 1h de la mer ou de la montagne avec de très beaux sites à visiter. Bela est adorable, très facile à joindre et prête à nous aider durant le séjour. Je recommande vivement !

    Vumba’s estate has a unique set of conditions which offer our guests the quiet enjoyment of a true rural experience. The renovation of the old winery gave birth to a snug little cottage, ideal for a family or a group of friends, with two rooms, a cozy living room, a bathroom and a nice and well equipped kitchen with a fireplace. The estate has several trails and idyllic ponds. Isolated from the outside world, here you'll find the ideal combination of natural resources to let you enjoy nature.
    Vumba is a 140 hectare property which occupies a beautiful valley of green pastures and charming groves. The beauty of the landscape is emphasized by the imposing mountains surrounding the region. On the horizon you can see, in a full, 360º uninterrupted sweep, the peaks of the Estrela Mountains (to the east), the Açor and Lousã Mountains (to the south), the Buçaco Mountains (to the west) and the Caramulo Mountains (to the north).
    Our estate and the surrounding area are a hikers and bikers paradise. In fact, one of the region's most important assets is the great beauty of its landscape. The most famous landmark of the region is the village of Piódão, but there are many other natural resources in the municipality which are virtually unknown, such as the Margaraça woods, the Fronhas dam and the river Alva, the best kept flyfishing secret in Europe. Outside the municipality, but within a radius of 40 km, are the cities of Coimbra and Viseu, the historic and beautiful Buçaco mountain and the Luso thermal springs.
  • We spent a lovely week in the Alhembric at Vumba. The Alhembric is a tastefully decorated cottage that suited our family of four – it’s compact but well equipped. If you want to do more ambitious cooking than you can do on its two electric rings and small oven, there are cooking facilities in the communal living area, although we didn’t ever feel the need. We enjoyed being able to retreat to our own living and dining room, but also being able to go to the airy, large communal area with its wifi and glorious view over the valley. Vumba is a beautiful, peaceful setting to stay in, set in fragrant pine and eucalyptus woods. It’s possible to walk for miles through the woods and fields on the estate and round the quiet neighbouring villages without having to get in the car, especially in the cool of the mornings and evenings. The swimming pool is beautifully landscaped and equipped with comfortable chairs and loungers, and there’s always some shade to retreat to. We enjoyed foraging in the vegetable garden. The large, sweet tomatoes in the vegetable garden were delicious. One evening we made a ratatouille with them and the aubergines, peppers, courgette and onions we picked in the garden. we made tea from the lemon verbena bush. Joanna gave us delicious eggs from the Vumba chickens; we also enjoyed the Vumba cheese, particularly the soft variety. Joanna was unfailingly helpful and friendly, always available to answer any queries. She told us about a candlelit procession one saints day evening in a nearby village, which turned out to be very atmospheric. She kindly gave us clean towels sooner than scheduled. We enjoyed her tour of the farm and cheese making buildings on the back of the tractor. We’d love to come back to Vumba one day.

  • We are very gratefull for the stay at Vumba and thank you, Joana and Patrick, for your excellent hospitallity and welcome. We really enjoyed the house, swimmingpool and the visit to the farm was inspiring. We feld very welcome!!!

    Sandra2017-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • We (my husband, our three kids between 4 and 8 and myself) had the best time at Vumba! Vumba is such a beautiful farm, a lovely place to enjoy your holiday in every way. Joanna and Patrick are very sweet and gave us valuable information about the surroundings (we went to Bucaco and to Avo, both very beautiful places to visit) and provided us with fruit, vegetables and we also had the possibility to collect more to a low price. Joanna arranged for us so we got bread in the morning and the best yoghurt. The swimmingpool-area was also very tastefully decorated. We took a goatsafari on the farm that was wery apprecisted by all of us. We saw sheep, goats and got a little tour in the the cheese-factory that is situated on the farm. We would definetely go back, it was perfect!

    Eva2017-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Very cozy and relaxing place. Secluded in a small town, surrounded by forest. The pool is very nice and with comfortable seating around it. If you're looking for a getaway from city life to relax, this is the place for you.

  • Adorámos a nossa estadia na Vumba. Foi eleita pela família como o destino preferencial das férias "campestres" da família Lopes. A quinta em si e a acomodação são fantásticas, com potencial para fazer um leque muito variado de actividades, que satisfazem quer miúdos quer graúdos. Durante a nossa estadia participámos no safari das cabras, na visita às ovelhas, no piquenique na Barragem Lúdica e no Sundowner, todos eles proporcionando experiências fantásticas. Em Julho/Agosto a queijaria está de "Férias", mas nos restantes meses do ano poderá ser ainda outro ponto de interesse. A Vumba possui instalações muito bem decoradas e funcionais, plenamente adequadas à experiência "campestre" pretendida. Os espaços comuns são muito simpáticos e dão oportunidade à interacção com outro hóspedes, se for esse o pretendido, mas também são suficientemente espaçosos para manter alguma privacidade. O pão fresquinho, deixado no saquinho de pano, logo pela manhã, facilita bastante o pequeno almoço familiar. A piscina, local preferido pelas nossas 3 crianças, de dimensões muito adequadas, esteve sempre em perfeitas condições, e proporcionou horas e horas de diversão e relax. A localização da quinta é também muito favorável, com supermercados, cafés, farmácia e restaurantes a "walking distance". Saliento ainda a proximidade a locais interessantes a visitar - quer as aldeias próximas como Piodão, quer as praias fluviais. E para finalizar agradecemos a amabilidade, simpatia e disponibilidade da Joana e Adélia, com quem mais contactámos. Por todas estas razões e mais algumas, vamos certamente voltar.

    Carlos2017-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Embora já tivesse consultado várias vezes, decidi usar o Airbnb pela primeira vez quando comecei a organizar uns dias de férias com os meus filhos adolescentes e encontrei o espaço Vumba. É uma quinta dedicada à produção biológica e as fotos eram inspiradoras. Fica perto de várias praias fluviais, tinha piscina e no geral apresentava uma óptima alternativa às rotineiras férias no litoral. Quando chegámos fomos muitíssimo bem recebidos pela Joana que nos mostrou prontamente todo o espaço e nos deixou completamente à vontade. Sem qualquer hesitação, à mínima suspeita de que a força da água corrente na casa onde vamos ficar alojados não estivesse nas condições habituais, mudou-nos para uma casa maior, com um pátio e um quarto extra que para nós era melhor e que não ficava atrás da primeira em cuidados com a decoração, conforto e condições. Ambas muito bem equipadas! A quinta tem vários espaços comuns e o mais agradável de todos é sem dúvida a piscina. É uma piscina antiga mas em fantásticas condições que mantém uma personalidade e encanto diferentes e está rodeada de vegetação. Não faltam espaços para estender a toalha e tomar banhos de sol e de água. Outro espaço comum que aproveitámos muito bem foi a sala e cozinha da adega. Todos os pormenores são encantadores, o espaço é amplo, luminoso e super confortável - ideal para jantar num ambiente diferente ou para tomar um café expresso (sempre disponível) pela manhã. Existe ainda uma lavandaria, uma enorme mesa exterior óptima para refeições ao ar livre e uma horta onde se encontram os melhores ingredientes para uma bela salada ou uma sopa. Podemos tirar o que quisermos e apontamos numa folha. No final fazemos as contas juntamente com o pão e os ovos frescos. Pudemos ainda ir visitar as ovelhas e as cabras mas não assistimos à produção do queijo que é interrompida durante o mês de Agosto. Perto da quinta existem várias praias fluviais e a Joana aconselhou-nos a do Vimieiro seguida de uma ida ao restaurante com o mesmo nome. Recomendo vivamente! Estas são informações genéricas mas a verdade é que há coisas que não se explicam, sentem-se. Estes dias foram uma experiência muito enriquecedora e cúmplice para nós possível também pelo amor e carinho que se sente nas mais pequenas coisas e que é, sem dúvida, transmitido por quem cuida delas. Muito obrigada e até breve!

  • A estadia na casa Alambique, foi agradável e super relaxante. Gostámos especialmente da piscina. Fizemos algumas caminhadas pela herdade, ficando ainda muito por ver, sendo tão grande. O espaço envolvente é muito verde e podémos experimentar alguns produtos da quinta, os quais recomendamos. Foram umas férias bem passadas e relaxantes, infelizmente, o tempo não esteve a nosso favor, mas deu oportunidades para conhecer outras coisas. Estadia 5 estrelas.

    Hello! My house Quinta da Fonte is nearby to family friendly activities, restaurants, shops, cafes, beautiful views across the valleys with river walks and swimming! You’ll love the outdoors space, comfy beds, roomy ambience of the house, spacious spa-like bathroom, fruit trees including orange, lemon, fig, plum, cherry and apple, the morning sunrises, evening sunsets and the quinta’s peaceful atmosphere. The house is good for couples, families with children and large groups!
    (Rental options of parts of the house available for a smaller budget) The house features wooden and tiled floors, a fireplace, large kitchen with all manner of cooking gadgets (soup, bread, juice, coffee makers etc), Rayburn, washing machine and dryer, decked veranda, office spaces, cinema projector and speakers, Xbox 360 games room, dvds, books, Apple tv, satellite tv and various bluetooth speakers dotted around the house for your holiday music playlists! At the end of a busy day you can relax in the spa bathroom looking up at the stars or watching the sun set against the mountains through our huge bathroom window.
    It's very peaceful here, rustic in feeling and a great escape from city life. Whilst it has an air of space and quiet, the house is a short walking distance to a small convenience store in the local village and a very short drive to Carregal do Sal where you’ll find everything you need including 5 different supermarkets, lots of local stores, restaurants and cafes. Hiking paths go straight from the house through beautiful landscapes towards great valley views and a stunning trek along a river. In the summer the river is great to swim in for cooling off during your exploring! ☺ Search for the 6 minute video on YouTube entitled Carregal do Sal.
  • This family house is indeed BIG! A lovely house on a perfect location to explore quite a big part of Portugal. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Our 1,5 year old son really loved running around the house and exploring the garden. Also Casper - the incredibly friendly and quiet family dog - was perfect company. Thanks for the lovely stay!

  • The house is even more beautiful than you expect, well decorated, comfy, cosy and Sinash is a really nice girl, very friendly and hepful. I recommend the house for a family or a group of people want to visit Viseu , Coimbra or just enjoy the countryside. If you are very fond of Pre-historic monument you can visit Fiais/Azeña which is quite near. A marvellous house!!

  • We spent two amazing weeks there. The house is extraordinary, big, confortable, very well located, quiet and well equipped. The parental room is stunning. Views are beautiful and the garden offered us daily some good oranges. Our hosts were wonderful, always available when necessary and very nice. Including Casper who protected us and accompanied us during walks ;-) We highly recommend this place!

    François2017-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • The accomodation was AMAZING. We loved it so much to spend our time there, even to have a lazy time or go out for hiking. We enjoyed it to have that big house on our own with Casper (the house dog - we would loved to take him with us) and the cats. Lemons and grapes in the garden. Amazing view. We could have stayed there for weeks. Communication was perfect and check-in totally flexible. Thanks a lot.

La casa estaba espléndida cuando llegamos y muy bien preparada. La piscina es una gozada y el clima y el sol da todo el dia. El único problema que habia mas de una avispa pero es algo normal al ser una casa rural. Una experiencia inolvidable

House was in the best state when we arrived. Very beautiful, autentic, clean, spatious.

  • We enjoyed our stay in Ivan's house very much. Ivan is friendly and helpful. The house is comfortable and well equipped and in a good location for activities on the Mondego river. The surrounding area is very beautiful. It is quite secluded so a car is definitely needed. The only small gripes were the kitchen was a little in need of cleaning and the plumbing is a little bit in need of an update! We would recommend for anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing holiday.

Os nossos anfitriões, antecipadamente, enviaram-nos vários documentos sobre a região que facilitou o planeamento da viagem. Esperamos voltar e repetir a estadia pois gostámos muito!

  • Un lugar estupendo donde pasar unos días de tranquilidad. La casa es muy bonita y acogedora. Las habitaciones son espaciosas, la zona de comedor y cocina tiene mucho encanto, preparado todo para estancias tanto de verano como de invierno, una amplia terraza con vistas hacia la sierra .. genial. Y los anfitriones muy amables, facilitando la estancia en todo momento. 100% recomendable

  • Ficamos hospedados apenas uma noite, mas adoramos tudo. O cuidado, atenção, hospitalidade com que fomos tratados foram absolutamente incríveis. A casa dava perfeitamente para 6 pessoas + 2 crianças e estava muito limpa e cuidada. Fomos recebidos sem que nada faltasse. Agradecemos à Margarida pela hospitalidade. Recomendamos. A zona é muito sossegado e mesmo junto ao rio é muito perto de Piódão e perto de Arganil.

  • A D. Margarida e o Sr. Jpão receberam-nos como se fossemos da família. A casa é exatamente como nas fotografias e impecavelmente limpa e com todas as comodidades necessárias para umas férias em família. Quando chegámos tínhamos fruta do quintal e bolinhos delicosos feitos pelo Sr. João. Recomendamos este apartamento!

  • La casa de Peter tiene TODO y mas de lo que puedas precisar para cocinar, o estar cómodo y confortable, es una construcción moderna dentro de una casa típica de Aldea de Xisto, bonita y con unas vistas increibles, en ese aspecto fue una experiencia perfecta! Lo único mejorable sería el estado del jardín que está muy abandonado y sobre todo saber que la piscina natural no es de la casa, por el anuncio pensamos que era de uso exclusivo pero es comunal del pueblo, es perfecta para darse un remojo y quitarse el calor y está a pocos metros de la casa pero no en la propiedad. Ahora vienen los peros... lo principal es que no está en Goís, si no en una aldea a 40 minutos (para 12 kilometros) de curvas y conducción por valle y montaña que se llama Soito que es increiblemente bonita pero no tiene ni tienda de alimentos, ni bar ni un café (tiene un centro comunitario con bar pero no abre ni todos los días ni en un horario amplio) por lo que los usuarios deben saber que deben llevar hasta la última cosa o alimento que crean que van a necesitar para su estancia, por lo demás siempre en coche pero está rodeada de aldeas de Xisto, playas fluviales y un marco natural incomparable después de hacernos a la idea de tener que usar el coche todos los dias y para llegar a cualquier lado la estancia ha sido buena y es un lugar ideal para descanso y naturaleza.

    Vumba’s estate has a unique set of conditions which offer our guests the quiet enjoyment of a true rural experience. The old home of Vumba’s foreman is now a very comfortable country house, ideal for a family or a group of friends, with 3 good bedrooms, a big living room with a cozy fireplace, a nice and well equipped kitchen and a bathroom, with a beautiful view of the garden. The house has an inviting patio ideal for relaxing after a walk in the woods. A second bathroom is located in an annex.
    Vumba is a 140 hectare property which occupies a beautiful valley of green pastures and charming groves. The beauty of the landscape is emphasized by the imposing mountains surrounding the region. On the horizon you can see, in a full, 360º uninterrupted sweep, the peaks of the Estrela Mountains (to the east), the Açor and Lousã Mountains (to the south), the Buçaco Mountains (to the west) and the Caramulo Mountains (to the north).
    Our estate and the surrounding area are a hikers and bikers paradise. In fact, one of the region's most important assets is the great beauty of its landscape. The most famous landmark of the region is the village of Piódão, but there are many other natural resources in the municipality which are virtually unknown, such as the Margaraça woods, the Fronhas dam and the river Alva, the best kept flyfishing secret in Europe. Outside the municipality, but within a radius of 40 km, are the cities of Coimbra and Viseu, the historic and beautiful Buçaco mountain and the Luso thermal springs.
  • We stayed two weeks at House of the Lizard, and it has been wonderful. Everything was perfect what we looked for. This traditional house, situated on a great location, offers all the desired comfort : a well-equipped kitchen, a cosy sitting area with a fire place, three spacious bedrooms, a very nice pool and few amazing views. Joana (and everyone around her) did everything to make our stay comfortable and nice. Really great !
