About Yves & Arjen
We live and work in Holland. As we love Portugal so much, most of our holidays are spent there.
Yves & Arjen purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Yves & Arjen chose Municipality of Salvaterra de Magos
We have chosen to build our holiday homes where we have, because of the fantastic facilities in the area, the natural beauty and the easy access to the cultural heritage of the region. So many beautiful things to see and visit. The Atlantic coast lies within reach, a visit to Lisbon is well worth a trip and doable in a day. The village of Salvaterra de Magos is small and traditional. It is simply a wonderful part of Portugal.
What makes this Villa unique
The most beautiful golf courses in Portugal are a maximum 2 hrs drive from our holiday homes. Wishing 20 minutes you fine Riba Golf 1 & 2 and St Estevao Golf. After a day of sight seeing you come home and enjoy the peace and quiet of your own retreat.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Six of us had a lovely relaxing holiday at Salvacasa. It is very well equipped and very comfortable. Spotlessly clean and very good beds.
The pool is beautiful and we were told it is a salt water pool so no smelly chlorine.It was not warm enough for us to swim but it looked very tempting. There is plenty of outside furniture for all, even soft armchairs to sink into with a nice glass of wine and a good book. Plenty of places to eat out at a very reasonable prices so we didn't bother to cook except for breakfast. I would certainly recommend the villa for families and large groups.
Lovely Property fully equipped and finished to a very high standard. We stayed for a few days with friends and had a great time. Quite isolated but not far from major routes and places of interest although a car would be necessary.
The Atlantic coast is only a 45 minute drive away from your beautiful location.
Your holiday home is just a 55 km drive from Lisbon airport. We can arrange a transfer for approx. 75 € one way. Because of the beautiful area we are in, we do recommend that you have your own means of transport.

An approx. 10 - 15 minutes walk from the villas will take you to the river; it is lovely for a picknick and a swim. There are small beaches for you to enjoy. You can book a fun day out on one of the river boats that can take you to a lovely island in the river. You may bring a picknick and you can also BBQ on the island.
The surroundings are perfect for a hike or a cycle tour, it is quite flat where we are....small lovely towns are close by.
Very close to the villas there is a local supermarket well stocked but simple. They do fresh bread and meat as well. Bigger supermarkets are a little further away. In the village you will find a very nice restaurant that serves simple but good quality food and drink. Drive just that bit further and you will find a diversity of restaurants serving fresh crab and fabulous steak, shrimp and local food. In your villa you will find more information.
The region has vast pine forests and bright green forest with small streams. In the soft rolling hills lies a medieval castle, Castelo de Leiria.
The monastery, also known as Mosteiro da Batalha, is one of Portugal's most beautiful Gothic structures.
Slightly further east, the peaceful town of Tomar is located. Each stone breathes a large number of historical events. A place that deserves to be visited so you can see the beautiful façades of houses, churches and other wonderful buildings. You will find many shops where ancient crafts are still being practised.
Obidos and Santarem are beautiful. Other attractions are the Largo do Seminario, the Largo Central and Portas do Sol. And the nineteenth century gardens with the magnificent Belvedère from which one overlooks the Tague. You have a beautiful view over the city from the Tower das Cabacas. This tower, called Torre do Relogio, means Watch Tower. The view from here on the set of beautiful windows, campaniles and Azulejos is truly overwhelming.
