Web Directories - Our Competitors

  • A lot of your time is wasted filling out forms and waiting for replies from multiple vacation rental owners. Many busy owners never reply.
  • The price shown always changes, you have to calculate it yourself and often changes once you communicate with the owner.
  • Most owners do not take the time to provide complete information on listings, so you waste time having to ask questions and wait for responses.
  • In a nutshell, "Web Directories" are cumbersome and time consuming, and if you have a problem, you are on your own.

Luxury Waterfront Villa, Private Pool, Kayaks, River Bar.

ID 256205 - 4 beds (2 double beds and 2 single beds). Base rent is for 6 occupants.
Coimbra Accommodation - Villa - 3000 sq ft / 278 sq m
This is an area for individualists. Why be stampeded into a rip-off tourist ghetto. Instead,treat yourself to a dreamy slice of a watery Eden,in Europe's 'forgotten' paradise. Try wild swimming in the tree-lined river. We have a 600-mtr stretch of calm water, You might spot a kingfisher or even an otter while swimming downstream to the river bar (open May – Oct).

The villa has just been stylishly restored without cutting corners, to make a roomy home of uncommon charm and elegance.
Hot water from solar panels. 43" SMART TV, Each bedroom has its own veranda.

(Note that during the course of a normal summer, on maybe three occasions groups gather in the daytime only for a picnic on the other side of the river. This will inevitably break the usual peace, perhaps for a few hours.)

In the private riverside garden is a pretty swimming pool with lounge shelf and large terrace around it. This catches a lot of sun and its lining is very high quality, with the warming sensation of cork on the feet.

A separate walled riverside garden has fruit trees and aromatic herbs for the kitchen. Guests can also help themselves to lemons and oranges, when in fruit.

From this garden a short path leads down to a small sandy beach - exclusively yours - from where you can swim in the normally clear and warm waters, or take a kayak downstream to the river bar or upstream to the cascades and rock pools.

It is a simple delight to walk to the river bar (takes about five minutes) and maybe take a leisurely coffee at the water's edge in lovely surroundings. Of course you could also row or even swim there. This river bar also serves snacks all day. A diving board hovers over the only deep part of the river.

The town of Lousã, which has several supermarkets, restaurants and one of Portugal's best beauty spots (at Arouce Castle), is less than 10 mins by car, in the Serra da Lousã. The medieval university city of Coimbra is barely half an hour. Also within easy reach are the vast golden beaches of the Silver Coast, gorgeous mountain scenery, warm rivers and lakes (far warmer and safer than the ocean).

British / Belgian owners

PLEASE NOTE: We have another, well established villa nearby. They are screened off for mutual privacy, but we politely ask guests not to play loud music in the pool and garden areas, especially at unsocial hours.

OTHER THINGS TO DO

*Lovely walks and drives through the hills and the 'lost' mountain villages;

*'Portugal Pequinitos' - a fantasy model village with Portugal's great buildings in miniature, but still large enough to walk through, plus humbler houses accessible only to children;

*Conimbriga - the ancient Roman capital with some of the best mosaics in Europe;

* World Heritage Tomar, a lovely old town with Knights Templar castle and convent;

*The vast golden beaches at Figueira da Foz,

*Horse-riding;

*Open-air zoo plus farm zoo;

*Gondola rides on the canals of Aveiro;

*The Holy Shrine at Fatima and nearby beautifully lit caves;

*The medieval university city of Coimbra

*Tree adventure park;

*Strange limestone caves at Casmilo;

*Nazaré seaside resort with celebrated seafood restaurant and cable car to 'hidden' town above.

The infrastructure is excellent, English widely spoken and restaurants amazingly cheap. This is the real Portugal, not a tourist ghetto rip-off.

NOTE THAT DESPITE THE WATERY LOCATION, MOSQUITOS ARE NOT A SPECIAL PROBLEM (though of course we do get them). IN FACT THE ISLAND SEEMS TO BE LESS TROUBLED BY FLYING INSECTS THAN PROPERTIES WELL AWAY FROM WATER.
