Overview

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.

Why Vera Marques chose Almeirim

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.

Très agréable maison

  • 4 of 5

Accueil très chaleureux dans cette agréable maison, très très bien équipée (il y a toute la vaisselle, le linge et l'électroménager qu'on peut souhaiter) et idéale pour les enfants: tout est prévu pour qu'ils s'amusent dans le jardin, même pour les tout petits. Nos enfants de 4 et 1 an y ont tous les deux trouvé leur bonheur.

En léger bémol, je dirais que le bruit des camions passant la nuit sur la route est parfois gênant, mais cela ne gâte pas le plaisir de profiter du jardin et l'impression de loger chez des amis tellement l'accueil est bon et la maison bien équipée (lits fait à l'arrivée, serviettes préparées, nappe sur la table).

Les sites touristiques sont à minimum 1 heure de route, mais cela ne nous a pas gênés, car la circulation est facile et de plus la localisation est assez centrale pour aller visiter aussi bien le bord de mer qu'Evora ou Tomar.

Très bonnes vacances en résumé.

A recommander

  • 5 of 5

Un petit coin de paradis dans le sud du Portugal, une maison accueillante, dans un écrin de verdure, baignée par le soleil.

Le lieu idéal pour des vacances reposantes en famille. Les enfants sont en sécurité dans la propriété et la piscine est toujours la bienvenue.

La description de la location est conforme, la maison bien entretenue, la propriétaire Dona Vera très attentionnée.

De plus, la région offre une multitude de choses à découvrir.

"Um pássaro,dois pássaros,três pássaros,muitos pássaros,muitas árvores,muitas flores,muitas ovelhas,um gato Manuel,um jardim muito verde a meter-se pelos nossos olhos adentro,o cheiro do campo e o ar sempre renovado pela pureza das coisas belas,o vento que sopra e se junta ao sol que invade todos os recantos onde a vida vai crescendo devagar,sem pressas,ao ritmo próprio de uma natureza que não se preocupa se amanhã será outro dia,outra noite,outro sol,outra lua,e que apenas nos quer fazer felizes e estar ao nosso lado,para que a alegria de viver a "Herdade da Raposinha" seja uma lembrança que perdure nos nossos sentidos,e nos faça dizer,como dizia o poeta Agostinho Neto ;" Á nossa terra havemos de voltar" . Esta não é a minha terra, é apenas um lugar no meu coração,por isso havemos de voltar."

"Antes de mais gostaria de agradecer a disponibilidade para nos receber na sua confortável casa de campo. O espaço era agradável e para quem aprecia a calma do campo, foi uma experiência agradável. De certo que no Verão poderemos repetir com a vantagem do clima e da piscina.

Apenas de notar, algumas das vedações envolventes não se encontravam íntegras."

"Les plus : Jolie maison ancienne, très bien équipée, superbe terrasse abritée par une glycine

Les moins : proximité de la nationale (un peu bruyant la nuit)."

The entrance, a large, green metal door, is signalled with a plaque indicating “HERDADE DA RAPOSINHA”, at KM 95+800.

For those who love horses, the farm has a privileged location, close to equestrian centers:Convento da Serra(1 km)and the Quinta da Alorna (12 km) where you can practice or learn to ride.Santarém´s history goes way back to the beginning of the Portuguese kingdom.Kings lived in Santarém,princes were born there and fearsome battles took place in this region.Some of the most beautiful Portuguese towers,monasteries and palaces are located in Santarém and its surrounding region.The city itself,a magic daedalus of small and sinuous streets,is known as the capital of the Gothic.Its magnificent heritage“Portas do Sol”,door of the sun;the archaeological museum of Saint John of Alporão;and several other churches and museums)is just part of a dense 10 square miles area of world heritage:the Almourol Castle,built on a tiny island in the middle of the Tagus river;Museum of Patudos;Roman bridge,at Muge; picturesque village of Arripiado,with its white houses reflected on the Tagus water;Constância,home to Camões,poet of the Portuguese epic Lusíadas.Further away,Tomar is also a sanctuary for heritage visiting:there you can admire the fabulous Convent of Christ,the Castle of the Templars,Roman“Ponte Velha”(old bridge).Should you prefer nature,there is plenty of choice in this region of the fertile Tagus Valley:the fluviarum of Mora;the barrage in Montargil,the ideal place to go if you are a nautical sports lover;the natural park of the Sorraia,where you can observe the wild horses running free.You can also buy local handicraft made of cork,or wood, and tast excelent cuisine.
