Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Almeirim
This cottage,part of a 3 acres rural property, is the perfect place for family holidays.Its charm owes both to the traditional rural architecture,which was left untouched,and to the simple but very comfortable furniture.The property being East/West oriented,there is plenty of sun throughout the day.Surrounding the front lawn a beautiful garden(0,075acres),with pergolas(0,025acres),provides the necessary comfort and freshness for reading,writing,painting or simply relaxing when the days get warmer.If you feel like eating out,a garden barbecue and outdoor furniture will allow you to do so.As the garden surrounds the cottage,you can also move next to the 18 inches wide and 5inches deep pool,in the back of the house.Next to the garden,you will also find many fruit trees and a vegetable garden,where you can pick yourself the fresh components of your meal.The cottage has a solar panel for heating purposes; and when it gets colder,the fireplace restores the comfort temperature in the bedrooms and the living room.If you want to bring your pet along,the cottage has appropriate lodging for cats and dogs.In the village nearby(0,3miles away),Raposa,you can find restaurants,a gas station,and a grocery store where you can buy the daily baked village bread.But if you want to visit the region and go shopping,you can drive or use a bicycle to get to Almeirim(7,5miles)or to Coruche(12,5miles),two beautiful and picturesque medieval cities,and taste its splendid cuisine,with such traditional food as“Sopa da Pedra”and“Ensopado de Enguias”.The regional wine is a must,so are the local fruits.

When I acquired this property in 1990, I had intended to live there with my family. For several reasons, this dream did not materialize but I kept it to spend my weekends and my holidays. It is very well located, with some excellent access, and offers an area for housing and storage houses, separated from the agricultural area. Over the years, I have made several improvements to the area of housing, implementing a large garden with trees, shrubs and lots of shade, a small pool and a large terrace, where I have an outdoor furniture that allows me to make my meals and spend my leisure time, reading, talking, or simply contemplate nature and the chirping of birds. Its privileged location allows me to tour the interior of the country, and enjoy the magnificent scenery of this region, and visit some of the most beautiful cities of our country, as Santarem, Coruche, Évora, Constance, Tomar, Obidos, etc. All of them less than 1 hour away. I still have to refer the most appreciated cuisine and the excellent wine, and also the regional fruit, such as melon and watermelon. This region is also known for horse farms, and for those who like to ride horses, it has a wide offer where this service is possible.
