  • The house, besides being beautiful and functional, is very comfortable and is located in a great place to explore the Serra da Estrela. Who received us was Paulo who was always very friendly and helpful. He even helped to arrange a workshop nearby for me to deal with the flat tire I had on the trip, thus saving my vacation! I would definitely choose to stay here again.

  • We had a lovely time in this beautiful house. Its clean and big. They where really friendly and its close to all the nice location by car!

    Yasmina2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very cozy and comfortable space. I emphasize Paulo's sympathy and attention. The regional products that sympathetically left us contributed even more to a fantastic stay.

    Rita2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Paulo and Célia's house is very beautiful and comfortable. Very well equipped we found everything we found. The big difference, however, is hospitality. I indicate with my eyes closed the stay in this beautiful region.

    Cecília2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • The little house is a real gem on the outskirts of Seia. Decorated with care and with all the necessary amenities to make us feel at home. Everything very welcoming. The friendliness of the reception reinforces the desire to return. Thank you very much Paulo and Célia for welcoming us

    Cristina2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Casa da Corga is very pleasant and cozy, starting with the welcome of the cat that seems to want to welcome you. The rustic aspect of the access contrasts with the modern decoration and equipment, as well as the impeccable cleanliness of the house. As we were there at the height of winter, there was plenty of cold, to the point of minimally surpassing the pleasant (even with the heating of the house), but nothing that the wine, cheese and ham (kindly offered by the hosts) does not attenuate. While the lower bedroom offers complete privacy, the upper bedroom gives us plenty of space. To summarize and conclude: we highly recommend the house, especially for those who seek the chill of the charming Serra da Estrela. Gabriel, Regina, Gabriela and Thiago

    Gabriel2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Paulo and Célia made us feel at home throughout our stay. They take care of every detail, they are very attentive people. You can breathe in that place, it was just magical and we want to repeat it soon !. Thank you very much Paulo and Célia !!

  • A great stay at Ute and Peter's farm. A little difficult to get home because of the dirt path. Besides, great stay! Thanks

    Ricardo2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Ute was extremely helpful and friendly. The space is pleasant but a typical country house and, therefore, the heating is pleasant for anyone with the spirit of experiencing this type of case. The house is clean and has the basics for a pleasant stay. It was a good experience.

    Daniela2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We felt very comfortable with Ute and Peter. The property is very nice. You can relax there and relax. We would love to come back and can absolutely recommend it!

    Alexander2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful place, it has been a perfect stay. The hosts are two lovely people, we have not missed anything. We will definitely repeat the experience, highly recommended. Very thankful. A hug

    Juan2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • In the top. Nothing to say, everything is perfect. Our best AirBnB during our road trip in the north of Portugal!

    Hélène & Thomas2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • The experience was second to none. The house is even more beautiful and pleasant than in the photos. The house was immaculate and comfortable. Even despite the bad weather, we never go cold, thanks to the large stove, which is able to heat the whole house. Peter and Ute are really nice. They were available at all times and made sure that we were well, that we knew how to make fire, gave us vegetables and eggs of their own harvest and even came to look for us with the car to a nearby town when we got lost finding the house. It was wonderful to talk with them and tell us their personal experiences, their way of life. On the other hand, the house is in the middle of the field, so the disconnection is assured. 10 bridge! Thanks for everything!

    Cristina2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Ute and Peter welcomed us so well that they made our stay very special! Getting home was a little difficult, even with gps, but as soon as we contacted them, they were immediately available to meet us and show us the right way. In addition to the beautiful house, which is set in a wonderful location, it is carefully cleaned and arranged, with everything needed. Ute and Peter are extremely friendly, good talkers, always ready to help us with our questions, they offered us delicious fruits and vegetables from their garden ... It's definitely a place to return!

    Inês2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is a special place to visit. We greatly enjoyed our time here with Ute and Peter and their home. There are many spots to relax, explore, and observe around their land, including nearby roads and paths. The cottage itself is spacious, comfortable, and well cared for. Ute and Peter were generous in their hospitality, offering food from their garden, stories, and a welcoming presence. The only difficulty we experienced here was finding our way to their house without GPS directions so do write them down beforehand or contact Ute. Thank you for our stay! We wish we could have stayed longer.

    Localizado no centro da cidade de Seia, todavia numa zona muito calma, o apartamento totalmente renovado disponibiliza acomodações muito confortáveis com 3 quartos e uma cozinha totalmente equipada. O apartamento tem a configuração ideal para acomodar uma família ou grupo.
  • To highlight the availability of host Filipe, namely, with regard to the information provided about restaurants in the area, allowing us to enjoy (in the best way) the great cuisine from Beira! The house is very comfortable and warm. It has the essentials for short stays. It is a little far from the center but, having a car, you quickly arrive.

    Maria2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The space is very pleasant and with all the amenities for a few days with the family. It is well situated and private parking is an asset. Mr. Filipe was available to answer any questions and indicated some very good restaurants where we could taste the local cuisine. I recommend!

    Ana2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • The reception is extremely welcoming, in which the host makes us feel at home in relation to all the facilities he offers. The house is well located and above all, the bedrooms and the living room have a good presentation, in addition to being comfortably warm. The kitchen also provided us with everything we needed in case meals are preferred at home. I recommend and certainly will be back.

    Pedro2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • I really liked the apartment, good space, all rooms very well equipped. Mr. Filipe very friendly and attentive and always available. Very satisfied with the stay. It is for sure to come back.

    Camille2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent and very quiet place to get away from problems and enjoy nature

    Ruben2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Adri and Petra was one of the loveliest hosts I’ve ever had! The chalet is super cozy with all amenities for a great stay. During the winter the cold could be a problem as it has only one portable heater... but everything was perfectly fine, so this was just a detail. Plus they provide warming blankets. :-) During the summer you can also use the pool. Serra da Estrela is really easy to get from the chalet, in less than an hour you will be on the top. Totally recommended. ❤️

    Gabriel2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • It’s a perfect place to relax away from the cities. The night is so quite that is unbelievable! Adri and Petra are perfect hosts. They are so sweet. It’s a place I want to stay again.

    Renan2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing surprise.. everything was special, they made us feel unique. We will never forget this little chalet, it was just perfect. Thank you so much. I recommend this to everyone.

Being a granite construction it is perfectly possible to notice the improvement of the temperature in relation to the exterior. To repeat.

  • Warm welcome, responsiveness; We enjoyed the bread delivered every morning - large spaces, swimming pool, the attentions brought by Lira (reservation of restaurant with menu in French for example), the fruits that could be picked, etc.

    Fidèle2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • A very special place to visit our family loved it. We stayed in a beautiful old house on the estate. It was really unique, beautifully restored. The estate is large and free, our kids loved rambling about and talking to the friendly cats and dog. The pool and ping pong table were great and much used. A surprise was how nice the village was (which the estate is actually in the middle of) so you could walk out for coffee etc. There is a super restaurant 'ze pataca' (sic?) that is minutes walk away. Food is extremely good and portions are enourmous, 1 between 2. Lira was a lovely person, we felt very comfortable staying there. There were supplies in the kitchen when we arrived so we could have coffee and hot choc straight away and home made jam and bread each morning. A very memorable and enjoyable stay.

    Kate2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • We liked a lot! The farmhouse is very beautiful, allows you to be in contact with nature in a pleasant space and with the conditions for a family reunion. The hostess is exceptional and always tried to make sure we had everything we needed. We love it and hope to return!

There are two entrances to the property, one into the kitchen on the ground floor and one with steps leading into the hallway on the first floor. Also available to you is our gardens and private swimming pool (Size: 9.5m x 5m). The pool is exclusively available to you and your party from 11am-6pm. Outside these hours we need to clean and maintain it. In the garden you will find a private outside eating area with a barbecue (BBQ) for your use. Near the poolside there are sun loungers, a table and chairs, shaded by a large umbrella. These are for your use. The house has some of the best views of the Serra da Estrela mountains in the whole town. The garden is a paradise for birds. During the day you will hear their songs. It is visited by green and gold finches, blue tits, black redstarts, Sardinian warblers, house martins, swallows, and so many more birds. There is always a red kite flying above. If you are a bird watcher then you could spend all day just sat in the garden! You can also enjoy our fruit trees, including orange, tangerine, lemon, fig, hazelnut, olive and walnut trees at certain times of the year.
    The house is located in the quiet and authentic Portuguese town of Cabanas de Viriato in Central Portugal. It has breathtaking views of the Serra da Estrela, which is home to the highest peak in Portugal. It is also the birth place and hometown of the Viriato, a Lusitanian chief. Casa do Passal, the mansion of WWII holocaust hero Aristides de Sousa Mendes, is located a 5 minute walk from the house. You are not allowed to go inside the mansion but this is definitely worth visiting if you have an interest in history. The town has two restaurants, three cafes, two local shops, bank with a cash machine, pharmacy and a post office. 4km down the road is Carregal do Sal where you will find a large supermarket, several restaurants, and shops. There is a large market there every 3rd Friday of the month. August is festival time in Portugal, where people dance in the streets and eat on long tables outside at the weekend. Each local village have their own festival week, but ours tends to be the first or second weekend in August. Everybody is in very high spirits, people tie bunting around the lamp posts, and processions go around the streets. The Portuguese enjoy fireworks at this time of the year.
  • Sue and Robert were the perfect hosts during our recent holiday to central Portugal. They gave us the perfect start with a tour of the beautiful property, pointing out all the facilities and providing us with a comprehensive welcome pack. Throughout our stay they were attentive towards our needs whilst affording a distance for our privacy. The pool was fabulous and helped immensely lay down wonderful memories of Nikolai's childhood. This was a really beautiful villa with the perfect hosts and we have no hesitation in recommending it to our family and friends. A sincere thankyou to you both Hannah and family

  • Well what can i say? From the very moment we arrived i was astounded by how wonderful Sue and Rob's restored Townhouse is. It looks great in the photos but simply stunning in reality. Sue and Rob are truly lovely people who made us feel very very welcome and instantly at home. They have carefully and lovingly restored this large house to its former glory with the addition of fantastic modern fittings. Beautiful bare granite walls and wood floors and luxurious bathroom, fantastic original ceilings and doors and shutters - if you love period properties this will be a dream come true as certain rooms are very grand! Sue spent a lot of time showing us around from room to beautiful room (the loft room is a dream for children!) and the property is much more spacious that you would think, set over 3 floors, we had ample room for the 3 of us and occasionally lost each other! The kitchen was wonderfully equipped with everything you need to make full blown meals if you want to and Sue and Rob had kindly left us a welcome pack in the fridge which was a really nice thing to do. Again in the bathroom there were supplies of shampoo and shower gel etc in case you had forgotten yours, also lovely big fluffy towels. Full of character, the garden area and pool is just simply amazing - where do i start! The pool is huge and clean and a delight to swim in - the view from the terrace is just mind blowing and is a full panorama that extends for miles! Lovely fruit trees in the gardens - Sue very kindly gave me some lemons to take home as i adore them! 4 good quality sun loungers and a table and chairs to dine at. We felt so relaxed here it was heaven. Sue and Rob were always on hand if needed with tips and advice on the local area. Cabanas De Viriato is a lovely traditional Portuguese town, we had a few good walks around and said "Bom dia" to the locals who were very friendly. Some of the older streets are cobbled and very picturesque and there are a few shops and 2 restaurants as well as a post office and pharmacy, so you can get everything you need in the village. Carregal do Sal is only a few miles away and has loads of big supermarkets and restaurants and is also very pretty in the old parts. It was here in Pingo Doce Supermarket we acquired some fantastic fish and huge king prawns the size of your hand and so cheap! they were absolutely delicious! The internet is fast and reliable! We didn't turn the TV on once but it is there if you need it! We had already been travelling around a little while when we arrived at Sue and Robs place and it really was great to relax and chill out. We loved the pool and also Sue's lovely dog Jasper and the lovely cat Barmy! We had been eating out every night of our travels but because we were so chilled out and only had 3 nights/2.5 days at Sues Place, we didn't actually make it to Piano, the main restaurant in the village - we have already decided to return next summer though and will definitely spend more time here! We also look forward to Kayaking for the day nearby. Sue and Rob we cannot thank you enough for providing such an amazing airbnb, we have now stayed in quite a few direct rentals over the years and yours is by far the best in every way! We cannot wait to return next summer and for longer! Heather, Isla and John xx

  • Very welcoming hosts, a nice house, a wonderful landscape : all the ingredients to spend a good journey in Portugal. We strongly recommend this address.

    Fabrice2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time at Sue and Rob's place, which surpassed our expectations in every respect. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable, with everything we could possibly have wanted. Sue and Rob are great hosts, thoughtful and attentive, always available but never invasive. We were so grateful for the lovely home-made lasagne waiting for us when we arrived late and exhausted. The outdoor area and pool are fantastic and we spent a lot of time lazing there, soaking up the sunshine. We really enjoyed discovering the local culture, with a bit of help from our hosts. There are amenities in walking distance - shops, café and a lovely restaurant, for instance. The area is very quiet, and we slept really well. Can't recommend highly enough!

    Fiona2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Rob & Sue have a very nice place to stay. Everything is right at the house and everything is there. Especially considering the warm weather we had, the pool is a very nice change. But there is also plenty to see and do in the neighborhood. If, after the bustle of Lisbon for example, you are looking for peace and nature, then this is the place for you. I can certainly recommend this house

    Menno2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • The house, garden and swimmingpool and the hospitallity of Sue and Rob was a real treat. Sue and Rob have give us a warm welcome. We had a lovely time here. If we ever go to Portugal again, this would be a place to return. The view from the window, to the highest mountain of Portugal is spectacular.

    Annet2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Fab place. Very well equipped. Lovely little town. Deffo worth a visit

    Dave2019-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I have just got home from a wonderful 10 night stay at Sue and Rob’s beautiful property. We loved the tranquility of the area and friendly welcome - a real home away from home! Thank you for looking after us so well (and being so understanding when we temporarily misplaced our key after too many vinho tintos!)

  • Matthew is a total dude. He and Celia are both genuinely lovely people. Their place is perfect, you have your privacy if you want it, or they are very sociable if you want to hang out. They made me feel so welcome and we had a brilliant evening together. Matthew also does canoeing excursions and rock climbing too. Next time I go I’ll try that too. It’s a beautiful piece of land they have as well. I couldn’t have been luckier to find them.

The kitchen is well equipped and the room very comfortable. Excellent value for those looking to explore the region between Coimbra and Serra da Estrela. I strongly recommend! =)

  • We spent as a family (2 children, 6 and 8 years) three nights in the house of Belchior. It was just wonderful! She and her parents welcomed us warmly, with a table full of goodies. The house is as described, has a great big kitchen, very comfortable beds and a gorgeous, covered with grapevines courtyard. After a small climb over a stone staircase to get to the pool, our favorite place. Our car was stationary for three days, we spent the whole time on the terrace, in the courtyard and by the pool, it was very relaxing. Thanks so much for your warm hospitality, it's a pleasure to meet you all! Best wishes from Germany, family da Silva Joaquim

    Alexandra2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • I can see why the reviews of Casa do Calhau are all so positive - this place is an absolute gem :) highly recommended. There are so many things to like: - a beautiful peaceful countryside location in Furadouro, with only 7 inhabitants - a very well-equipped house that's clean, spacious and very comfortable - an awesome pool - delicious and home-grown fruit and vegetables and homemade wine and port made by Alcina, Belchoir and friends - the most welcoming and lovely hosts - thanks again Alcina, Belchoir and Ana

    Dave2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • This little mountain village and our hosts have a really special place in our hearts now. The house is beautiful and so welcoming it’s easy to feel at home immediately. The hospitality and kindness surrounding our stay is something I’ve never experienced before and very grateful for it all. Having no internet forced us to wean off technology - both adults and kids - and allowed to create moments we don’t experience much anymore. Hammock and swimming pool life for the win. Our kids aged 7,5,5 loved everything from their attic bedroom to the 3 diff level and super interesting back garden and of course mostly the pool. I got up every morning at 6am for a run and that time of the day the mountains were half covered in fog and all asleep it was magical. Highly recommend for a unique, off the beaten track, authentic but in a 5 star way holiday.

    Dora2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • We were 2 couples staying at Casa Da Calhau and we enjoyed every second of it. The host, Ana and her parents were amazing and always present with good advices. The Dao region is full of very warm people and very generous. We would recommend for people with a car. They thought of everything -even some locally grown food and Wine. Everything was perfect and beyond what we could have imagined. We will definitely go back!

    Amélie2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • I’ve never experienced this wonderful hospitality and welcome table including gluten-free products which were picked up during our conversation upfront asking for gluten-free grossers stores. We enjoyed the location, the view, silence and the small river in walking distance. The house was very clean and has a well equipped kitchen. The most remarkable was their vegetable garden and fruit trees which were labelled to encourage kids to know more on fresh food AND out which you can take food from.

Our simple, but efficient self constructed solar water heating system will transform the sunlight into renewable energy for water heating. This sustainable energy system is designed to deliver hot water for the most of the year. In the winter you could use the gasheater for the shower. In the colder season the wood stove will create a homely atmosphere. The wood for the woodburner will be charged based on consumption. You will enjoy a fantastic view through the window into the garden with mountains in the background. During the summer the paved floor in front of the house is perfect for a personal yoga or meditation practice . WLAN is available and included in the price.

The Wooden Zen House is very cute & cosy and has a large terrace with a lot of privacy where we loved to hang around.

As we like to cook we were happy about all the equipment in the kitchen. We really recommend a stay at the Bamboo Quinta! :)

    Cara Creek Eco Lodge -- Come be nourished by nature! We maintain a low carbon footprint by being completely off grid. We use wood sourced from our land in our wood oven for cooking and to heat water for showers, and our hot tub. Electricity is powered by solar, and we're fortunate to have our own mountain spring for drinking water. From the natural swimming pool, which uses plants to filter the water, to the communal spaces and accommodations, each has been meticulously thought out and inspired by nature in it's design. In both our garden and our overall project, we have implemented permaculture principles. Our pigs and chickens have turned over our soil for our kitchen garden, and provide compost. We grow lots of our own fruit and veggies, raise chickens for fresh eggs and poultry, raise pigs for pork, and raise goats for milk and cheese. We use most of our own grown and raised produce in our kitchen and if we do not grow it or raise it ourselves, we source from the most local and organic source as possible. Our intention is to be fully self-sustainable. We have a mini farm which includes our lovely dwarf goats, Lily and Lola! Maintaining our permaculture principles, they eat the weeds to keep them down, whilst providing us with milk for us to drink and make cheese. We have beautiful pigs that enjoy roaming freely down by the river, and chickens for fresh eggs, too! We also have 4 lovely dogs and 1 cool cat on-site pets. They are all friendly and polite with our guests, and if welcome they love to join for a stroll along the river Mondego.

    The surroundings of Cara Creek Eco Lodge offer not only beautiful views in nature, but also the deep richness of the regional Portuguese culture. 5 minutes by foot from Cara Creek Eco Lodge to have the unmissable opportunity to see a derelict water mill set in the banks of the Seia River. If you're lucky, you might even get the chance to see the shepherd and his sheep passing or grazing in the local pastures. Whilst having a coffee and a typical pastry in one of the quaint villages of Ervedal da Beira or Azenha, you can't help but notice the region's culture and close-knit community. By sitting and having a chat with the locals in the cafe, you'll soon get a feel for the authenticity of both the people and the lifestyle that remain palpable here in the Beiras Region. You will soon become accustomed to the way of life and enjoy the innate tranquility that is forever present in the surrounding Portuguese villages. Nearby tours offer an opportunity to further immerse yourself in the native atmosphere that the area has so well preserved. Some include a visit to one of the regional cheese factories or a local olive museum. If you are a wine lover, maybe a visit to one of the local wineries is best suited for you. It will give you the opportunity to gain more insight into the long-lived wine making process that the community has used for generations, plus enjoy a taste! Or, alternatively, if you are a thrill seeker, perhaps a mountain bike or paddle board tour would be a better option for you. Regardless of the tour chosen, you will undoubtedly gain more insight into the rural Portuguese way of life, and see first-hand how the small agricultural businesses still manage to thrive today.

We grow lots of our own fruit and veggies, raise chickens for fresh eggs and poultry, raise pigs for pork, and raise goats for milk and cheese. We use most of our own grown and raised produce in our kitchen and if we do not grow it or raise it ourselves, we source from the most local and organic source as possible. Our intention is to be fully self-sustainable. We have a mini farm which includes our lovely dwarf goats, Lily and Lola! Maintaining our permaculture principles, they eat the weeds to keep them down, whilst providing us with milk for us to drink and make cheese. We have beautiful pigs that enjoy roaming freely down by the river, and chickens for fresh eggs, too! We also have 4 lovely dogs and 1 cool cat on-site pets. They are all friendly and polite with our guests, and if welcome they love to join for a stroll along the river Mondego.

  • The house was extremely cozy and beautiful and there were lots of nice details around the house. The garden was green with many colourful flowers. The pool was big enough for swimming and playing and the water was very clean. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. It´s a wonderful place for anyone looking for peace and quiet, nature and interesting sights. A car is needed to get around. Thank you Sofia!

  • We were 5 on a motorbike: arrived a little early we were warmly welcomed by a friend of the family. The house is bigger and more beautiful than it appears in the photos, it is very well equipped, we have not missed anything. We were able to park our motorcycles at the shelter. The outdoor space is very well arranged and very pretty! The communication before our arrival was easy and once there Sofia sent us messages to know if everything was going well. The house is in a small village where there is a bar and mini mini market. It was a great time and we will come back with pleasure !!!

  • Very cozy house with a super careful decoration and worthy of the place. House suitable for a peaceful stay in the middle of nature. Very easy and super fast communication. Breakfast was divine, thought out in detail. We love the stay and recommend it to anyone

    Joana2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • I have to highlight the excellent way I was received by Rui and the care he took in showing me and documenting the main sights, having even prepared a guide for the purpose I had in mind and that it was a trip to discover the route of the They do. The breakfast that is available is exceptional and with local products. I strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in the Dão / Viseu / Santar area.

    Jorge2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Rui was beyond our expectations. The apartment is beautiful, contemporary style with Japanese inspirations, in a traditional Portuguese village, it's original. Everything is perfect. Rui has been available to answer our questions and propose several activities to do in the immediate environment and in other villages of the region. Breakfasts made with local products are hearty, delicious and there is always something for the collections or the end of the day. The experience in this small jewel in Santar will remain one of the very beautiful that we have experienced so far. Rui is passionate, proud of his country and inspiring. Good luck for the continuation with Casa Luis de Camoes and all your other projects. Marie-Thérèse and Henri, Quebec, Canada

    Marie-Thérèse2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend staying at Rui’s place if you want to get to know the Dão region. The apartment is beautiful and stylish; perfect for two people. It is equipped with everything you need to feel at home, but Rui and Sara have gone above and beyond that! The daily breakfast provided by Sara was wonderful and even included some home-baked goodies. We also went on a guided wine tour of two of the local Quintas organized by Rui. It was great to learn about Dão wines in the heart of the region. We would absolutely stay with Rui again when we return to Santar!

    Carolyn2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Many have already said the same: great place, good value for money, all amenities you need, breakfast fantastic with local produce, clean, good hospitality, nice bed. 10/10.

  • Rui's place was awesome, one of the most unique and well designed apartments we stayed in! Both Santar and Viseu were quaint and charming. Rui had great local recommendations, I would especially say that Paco dos Cunhas was so good! Breakfast delivered in the morning was a very nice touch.

    A Póvoa Dão com o espaço que a envolve tem uma área de cerca de 120 hectares. Hoje é uma jóia rara, consequência de um trabalho de reconstrução feito com os cuidados propiciadores de um resultado muito positivo, podendo, por isso, dizer-se que, aqui, pode viver-se o presente à sombra do passado, ou seja, a dois passos das correrias do nosso século fica a tranquilidade, o sossego e a vida simples de séculos atrás.

  • Unique site, very rustic, had great pleasure with the inhabitants of the neighboring village. The Portuguese are very welcoming and their wine is excellent

    André2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Characteristic village, very quiet place and well equipped house.

    Erik2019-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed 2 nights in this cute but also complete house. Nice big terrace we also at. The village used to be a sort of holiday park with reception, bar, swimming pool and tennis court, but is now completely deserted. We stayed here at the end of May 2019 and we were the only residents, apart from a stray cat. Helenaal great of course but especially on arrival a somewhat strange sensation. Walks in the immediate area are beautiful but not well marked. So put your house in Google maps for a while and you'll always find your way back. Recommended for people who do not want contact with other people. Close to villages and a 20-minute drive from the city.

    Marika2019-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • I recommend that you like a natural space, isolated and very beautiful. Something to explore for a day or two and ideal for anyone who wants to isolate to write or meditate. The host, Mr. Joao, provided every detail, although he was not present. The house is not large but it is rustic and perfectly sleeps a couple and two children. The village is practically without one and allows magnificent walks. A few km we can find restaurants and everything is not far from Viseu. I consider it an experience to be repeated and I recommend it to anyone who likes this type of framework.

    Luis2019-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • To begin with, even if there is no direct interaction with John I have to say that he is an excellent host even remotely. The environs of space, it is impossible not to like, green spaces, river nearby, rails for the more adventurous, Cascata do Cachiço that is well turned, the pure mountain air and everything that is expected of a house in the middle of nowhere . The facilities, give a perspective to what really is needed, without great luxuries, but also lack nothing. Everything we really need is present. Definitely a place to come back to.

    Mico2019-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent house, very comfortable, cozy, the stove heats the space perfectly, at night there is no noise whatsoever, perfect for those who want to rest. The owner had all the attention with every detail. The village is beautiful and quiet. It has night lighting, security. The village restaurant no longer works and the pool is abandoned, but in the area there are river beaches and only 2 kilometers in Silgueiros there is the restaurant Cepa do Dão, very good quality and service and an affordable price.

    Ivan2019-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place! Transferred to the Middle Ages, as on a time machine, but the Middle Ages with the amenities :) Thanks to the owner for a wonderful house! Everything corresponded to the description. A place for those who want to relax from the hustle and bustle, but the Internet is always at hand, so that the connection with the world will not be interrupted.

The Wood burning stove brings cozy warmth in the colder months.The wood for the woodburner will be charged based on consumption. You will enjoy a fantastic view over the Mondego valley from the winter garden and sun terrace.

Laundry service at "Quinta Bamboo" and close by in Tábua/intermarché is possible. 2 bicycles to rent.
    We are located in the Center of Portugal by Póvoa de Midões, near Tábua and Carregal do Sal (8km) between Lisbon and Porto about 60 km from (URL HIDDEN) our village, Póvoa de Midões (approx 800mt) you will find a little supermarket (mini mercado), four cafes/bars, one bakery/pastery, a hairdresser and a garage.

The oscillating rock in Póvoa de Midoes with an amazing view over the Mondego river, also called Penedo C'abana, is an important monument in the county. One of the most unique natural resources of the protected landscape area of the "Serra do Açor" is the cascade "Fraga da Pena". 40 km from our place you can hike in the "Serra da Estrela", the highest mountain range in Continental Portugal(1993m) which is formed from a huge granite ridge. There is a fresh, charming and relaxing place for a walk, this is Forest "Serra do Buçaco" with its wonderful flora and biodiversity. Coimbra, the traditional university city with remarkable architectural monuments and art treasures you arrive in 50 min. Figueira da Foz this old port town is one of the most popular seaside resorts of Portugal’s west coast with its long and wide fine sandy beaches.We are located in the Center of Portugal by Póvoa de Midões, near Tábua and Carregal do Sal (8km) between Lisbon and Porto about 60 km from Coimbra.
  • Sometimes, when you travel, you wish to find a gem among accomodations. When you are looking for your few nights room or apartment you must spend some time. And when you find it, you even have to walk from parking for 100m too. And than - there it is - it was a gem for us: a place you can't admire enough (simple and special), peace and silence (nature all arround you), hosts with kindness from the beginning to end (from words to little attentions). Go and look for yourself!

    Zlatka2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Bernd and Martina were the nicest hosts we have ever had on an airbnb experience and were particularly good with Emily my daughter and even got her some easter eggs. The house is comfy and relaxing and the views were absolutly amazing. It felt like you were in a little piece of Amazonia.

    Callum2019-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely and charming space and landscape for anyone thirsting for serenity and natural beauty. Both the physical spaces inside and out, are welcoming and refreshing, and the feel of the land and hosts are kind, and easeful. We would love to stay again, if we have the opportunity.

    Sia2018-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • We were there last year and we went back this year because the place and the hosts are outstanding. Both hosts are excellent at teaching their respective discipline. Their level of competence is very high and my wife can testify: she is herself a yogi. The only downside is the barking of dogs at night. Those who are light sleepers may be affected. Otherwise, it was perfect and we plan to return a third time to go further in yoga classes and Wing Chun. Courses at this price, it is practically given. Our kids were with us -10 and 14- and they loved it (they did yoga). Thank you both for your availability and your discretion. The place might not be suitable for the younger ones though, as access to property requires some physical form.

    Catherine2018-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • The exceptional site of this high-pitched house has delighted us, not to mention the kindness and availability of the owners. A haven of peace really, ideal to relax after the possible visits to Coimbra, Porto or in the forest of Bussaco. Undeniable charm!

    Florence2018-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • This was the second time in 4 months, staying with Bernd and Martina. This time i stayed for a month. Bernd and Martina are super nice hosts. Both the wooden zen house and the guesthouse are the perfect magic hide away for anyone wanting to get away from stress and noises, in a place surrounded by nature. I would recomment this to anyone wanting to find a quiet place in the area. Will definitely try and stay there again in the near future.

  • Quinta Bamboo was just what we needed most to. A beautiful hideaway that featured plenty of rest. In the morning we cultured yoga with Martina and in the evening we enjoyed the sun's last rays of the perfect landscape terrace. The warm days we spent on excursions to the beautiful surrounding rivers and waterfalls. Again the family was very helpful to recommend good places to visit.

    The House of the Woodoven, with an independent entrance, is located inside a private estate, which belongs to an old family from Viseu. It is at about 5 min from the Viseu centre and 50 min from Serra da Estrela. As we are situated in the demarcated region of Dão, it is a great chance to visit the producers of wine some awarded Portuguese wines. (URL HIDDEN)
    This house, rebuilt especially for this purpose, has two bedrooms, one double and one single, one bathroom, a living room and a kitchen/dining room fully equipped, where guests can, comfortably, cook their own meals. The pleasant exterior area allows you experiencing a quiet rest, without the typical noise from the city, or to enjoying your meal in the fresh air.
  • Nice house and garden, parking is a bit tricky. Great location, a 10 minute drive from Viseu center. Great communication and Catarina speaks perfect English.

  • We like the location, the cleanliness, and the address, for sure if I return to Viseu I'll be back.

    Patricia Maistro2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • A nice house but a little neglected on cleaning. Bed very uncomfortable. Dirty sofa. Very difficult to find because no. Civic and no one on hand to greet us. It was necessary to make a call to the host in Porto to know how to enter the house. About 15 km from the activities. Really in the countryside.

    Gilles2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • The house is wonderful, super cozy and the location is really very quiet. The owner Luisa, who received us, is very friendly and very helpful, helped us a lot. My family is me and we had a great time here.

    Alexandre2019-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • A pleasant accommodation and location villa just minutes from the center of Viseu. Highly recommend the stay.

    Vinicius2019-07-05T00:00:00Z

    Cara Creek Eco Lodge -- Come be nourished by nature! We maintain a low carbon footprint by being completely off grid. We use wood sourced from our land in our wood oven for cooking and to heat water for showers, and our hot tub. Electricity is powered by solar, and we're fortunate to have our own mountain spring for drinking water. From the natural swimming pool, which uses plants to filter the water, to the communal spaces and accommodations, each has been meticulously thought out and inspired by nature in it's design. In both our garden and our overall project, we have implemented permaculture principles. Our pigs and chickens have turned over our soil for our kitchen garden, and provide compost. We grow lots of our own fruit and veggies, raise chickens for fresh eggs and poultry, raise pigs for pork, and raise goats for milk and cheese. We use most of our own grown and raised produce in our kitchen and if we do not grow it or raise it ourselves, we source from the most local and organic source as possible. Our intention is to be fully self-sustainable. We have a mini farm which includes our lovely dwarf goats, Lily and Lola! Maintaining our permaculture principles, they eat the weeds to keep them down, whilst providing us with milk for us to drink and make cheese. We have beautiful pigs that enjoy roaming freely down by the river, and chickens for fresh eggs, too! We also have 4 lovely dogs and 1 cool cat on-site pets. They are all friendly and polite with our guests, and if welcome they love to join for a stroll along the river Mondego. Our facilities include a wood-fired hot tub, a natural swimming pool, a body-weight gym, a river front yoga deck, a library, an outdoor kitchen, a café/restaurant, a small gift shop, and a private river beach! We have a yoga teacher and a Portuguese teacher on site, available for group and 1-1 sessions, if you're looking to deepen your yoga practice or better your Portuguese language skills. Our breathtaking place is completely immersed in the beauty of nature! *Free pick-ups can be arranged from Carregal do Sal train station, with regular trains running from Lisbon, Porto and Coimbra* *10% discount for those arriving by bicycle*
    The surroundings of Cara Creek Eco Lodge offer not only beautiful views in nature, but also the deep richness of the regional Portuguese culture. 5 minutes by foot from Cara Creek Eco Lodge to have the unmissable opportunity to see a derelict water mill set in the banks of the Seia River. If you're lucky, you might even get the chance to see the shepherd and his sheep passing or grazing in the local pastures. Whilst having a coffee and a typical pastry in one of the quaint villages of Ervedal da Beira or Azenha, you can't help but notice the region's culture and close-knit community. By sitting and having a chat with the locals in the cafe, you'll soon get a feel for the authenticity of both the people and the lifestyle that remain palpable here in the Beiras Region. You will soon become accustomed to the way of life and enjoy the innate tranquility that is forever present in the surrounding Portuguese villages. Nearby tours offer an opportunity to further immerse yourself in the native atmosphere that the area has so well preserved. Some include a visit to one of the regional cheese factories or a local olive museum. If you are a wine lover, maybe a visit to one of the local wineries is best suited for you. It will give you the opportunity to gain more insight into the long-lived wine making process that the community has used for generations, plus enjoy a taste! Or, alternatively, if you are a thrill seeker, perhaps a mountain bike or paddle board tour would be a better option for you. Regardless of the tour chosen, you will undoubtedly gain more insight into the rural Portuguese way of life, and see first-hand how the small agricultural businesses still manage to thrive today. Plus, you'll get to see more of the gorgeous Beira Region. Visit The Beiras Tour Co. for more details.
