The property is absolutely marvelous for those who are in search for peace and silence. The owners know very well the region and can show you the best walks and tell you about the good restaurants in the villages nearby. The house is all furnished with confort and good taste. The swimming pool is really big (this is not normal in many of the houses we've been to recently) and there are wonderful views to Marvão and its castle. There are bikes available and the roads around are perfect for a ride. I totally recommend it! Last but not least (on the contrary!): Peter and Rosemary, the owners, are wonderful hosts.
We stayed in the cottage for two weeks in August. Our stay could not have been more perfect. The hosts have created an idyllic getaway, and a true home away from home. As comfortable and welcoming as the cottage is, we spent most of our time lounging by the pool and taking meals on the covered patio. It must be mentioned that guests are welcomed and encouraged to pick fresh fruits from the trees in the garden. Our hosts topped our vacation off by giving us a personally guided tour of the region, complete with nature walks and interesting history lessons of Portugal. Who could ask for more? And if you need more incentive, imagine watching a spectacular sunset, sipping a glass of local wine, and listening to the musical clanging of the sheep and goat bells as they are herded home. We could not recommend this more highly. The only note is that you will need a car to reach the wonderful markets, towns and restaurants in the area. And there are many!
