This villa is absolutely fantastic! It is spacious, comfortable and has everything you could need!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this villa. It is very spacious, comfortable and extremely well equipped. There are various seating areas outside so that you can enjoy the sunshine at all times of the day, plenty of tables and chairs for inside and out, plus there is the beautiful pool! It has everything!
The location of the villa is great to be able to get out and explore some amazing surroundings. We did lots of 'wild swimming' in the most stunning locations, kayaking, walking and it is not too far from the coast.
Tomar, which is only 20 minutes drive away, if steeped in history of the Templars which (if you like your history) is a great place to visit and has the largest Templar castle in the world!
You will not be disappointed if you stay in this villa - we absolutely loved it!
Superbe maison pour des vacances au calme !
Nous étions un groupe d’amis de 6 personnes.
Nous avons passez un séjour formidable grâce à cette superbe maison : grande, bien équipée et confortable. Nous avons profité de la piscine mais aussi de la vue sublime et du temps magnifique !!!
Ce que nous avons apprécié c’était surtout le calme !!
La maison est isolée mais à 20 minutes des grandes villes (Tomar..) et à 5 minutes seulement des petits commerces ce qui permet des courses rapides.
Nous recommandons cette maison à tout le monde (famille,amis ...)
Belle villa de qualité
Villa spacieuse et agréable à vivre, propriétaire à l'écoute (via mail) Située au centre du Portugal, nombreuses visites possibles : Porto, Lisbonne, Tomar, Coimbra et son Fado... Nous avons passé d'agréables vacances au soleil ! Nos 4 enfants ont apprécié la piscine.
Seul bémol, l'absence de lave-linge.
Our self catering Portugal holiday villa is situated near Alvaiázere in Central Portugal. It is close to unspoiled countryside, river beaches that are suitable for swimming and historic world heritage sites. It is only 20 minutes from the beautiful city Tomar and within 40 minutes of Portugal’s stunning third largest city - the university city of Coimbra. Lisbon and Porto are just a train ride away or 1.5 hours by car. Horse riding, hiking, kayaking, river trips and spa days are all available locally and can be arranged for you. There is plenty to do and see and something for everyone!
The locale around Sandoeira is unspoiled, natural and often stunning. Surrounded by mountains, rivers, gorges, forests, picturesque villages, miles of sandy beaches, this area has it all.
The nearest large town is Alvaiázere which has everything a small town should have: restaurants, cinema, pharmacy, doctors, a football team, shops and bars. It has a market once a week, where you can buy anything from furniture to rabbits or a pair of jeans!
Tomar is dominated by the Convento de Cristo which sits high above the city and is crossed by the Nabão River. Its chequered history tells stories of wealth and trading, religion and atrocities, peace and cultivation and it was especially important in the 15th century when it was a centre for Portuguese overseas expansion under Henry the Navigator. The Convent is an incredible place to visit and is open every day except various Bank Holidays. It really is a 'must do' place to visit and you will not forget its stunning beauty if you go.
The Romans, Moors and Portugal’s own Gualdim Pais have all set their mark on this beautiful city. Its beautiful churches, old town and Convent are visited by many tourists each year, showing visitors its mysterious, wonderful and often colourful past.
Portugal’s river beaches are little gems of tranquillity tucked into gorges, along rivers or created in picturesque towns and villages. Each one is unique in its setting and offering, but all bring you into proximity with nature.
The clear river waters in this part of Portugal are often warmer than the sea and with no hidden undercurrents, make river beaches perfect for beautiful summer days. The clearly defined swimming areas offer grass or sand for relaxing; sunbathing or playing and ancient trees provide dappled shade in the heat of the day.
Many river beaches have slides, rope swings, jumping platforms and ladders for your enjoyment and most have cafés and picnic areas. In the height of the summer many have a lifeguard on duty and most have a first aid point.
One recommended is Fragas de São Simão. A twisty drive through the forest, takes you past a wonderful view point and brings you down to where the River Alge has been dammed to help provide several pools of varying depth. It is a beautiful natural setting, with dappled shade and swimming in the crystal clear water. There is a communal BBQ area, toilets and a café open in the summer.
