We hiked in the nationalpark, visited Fatima, Batalha, the caves in Mira de Aires and recommend it all. Remember to visit the local restaurant Recanto dos Sabores and take what you get. Very good food at a reasonable price.
We stayed at Casa da Nogueira near Alvados for seven days in late August. The location of the villa was great, about an 1hr 20mins from Lisbon in the hills of a national park region. It takes about 40 mins to drive to the beach at Nazare. The views from the villa were stunning. It was peaceful and the surrounding area was very charming. There are lots of areas around the house to relax with a great area for BBQs and eating outside with shade. We were two families totalling seven in total and everyone had a really great time. There are plenty of places to visit within a small distance by car and also lots of activities - walking, horse riding and playing football on the local village pitch. I would thoroughly recommend the place. As with comments from an earlier visitor, it would be nice to arrive with some basics provided eg dishwasher tablets and soap etc. The house itself is immaculate (newly renovated in a modern contemporary style) with great facilities, there is WiFi, a DVD player, all the usual mod cons and the swimming pool area is great.
