The house was beautiful and from first glance as if straight from a fairytale. The surrounding area shows off the beautiful mountains and provides the perfect atmosphere for a calming meal inside or outside not to mention the possibility to have a grill in the backyard. Eating in the terrace gives you the feeling of having the entire world under your feet. The inside of the house is spacious and well kept providing a comfortable living space with large beds perfect to relax after a day of adventures. To add to the house itself only a few kilometers away you can go and see beautiful caves that will leave an impression for everyone as well as a good restaurant with amazing food!
The owner of the house is very friendly and helpful willing to provide advice on the best places to visit and makes anyone feel welcome and right at home during the stay. He will answer all questions and help in any way possible making this a very pleasant experience for all.
Overall if you are travelling with a car this is the perfect place to settle down during your trip and I highly recommend it to everyone wanting to visit Portugal
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.
