Get out of the house and you will be on the beach! :-)
Seaside / sea view house in Figueira da Foz / Coimbra (Cova-Gala beach), Portugal, between Figueira da Foz Hospital and Orbitur Camping.
The house has east/west sun exposure, a big private two-car garage and is included in a private condominium of 7 houses, with a common barbecue area.
Dunes House has 3 floors:
- Ground floor: living room, kitchen and small toilet;
- 1st floor: 2 rooms (quad and triple) and wc (bath);
- 2nd floor: triple room and wc (shower).
Note: 2 extra single beds can also be provided.
All rooms have wardrobe and balcony - see photos and comments for details.
The surrounding area provides different leisure environments, perfect for water sports (surf, kitesurf, bodyboard...) and others (football, basketball, skating), cycling, walking tours and fishing.
A picnic park is located a few metres from the house (ideal for meeting friends or reading a book under the shadow of the umbrella pines).
You can find all facilities you may need in a short distance (100-500 metres): restaurants, cafes, small market, pharmacy.
You can also find a catholic church near the hospital (+/- 800 metres from the Dunes House).
Do not forget to visit Coimbra, the old university city!
Remember that the University and surrounding areas are now inscribed on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
