Relaxing, totally private villa with great views

5 of 5
The villa is situated on the edge of a small village overlooking the surrounding countryside. The villa is private and not overlooked. It is very spacious and very homely with nice personal touches. The ground floor is open plan but very large so the kitchen is well away from the seating area. We were there in April so the log fire was used every night - very atmospheric and there was no shortage of wood provided. Good selection of DVD's and games - we were hooked on Pulso so we are now buying it ourselves! The main bedroom was huge with separate dressing and sitting area, en-suite and large balcony. Two other good sized double bedrooms and a separate bathroom. Outside the pool was unheated, but even in April we were in it most days. Nice BBQ area with sink etc. Good selection of chairs, loungers and deck chairs. Separate laundry room with washing machine and dryer. The surrounding area is beautiful and drives into the hills recommended. Suggest you visit Fatima, Coimbra, Pumbal, Batalha. If you get chance further afield go to Aveiro, near Porto, the mini Venice.

Excellent!!

5 of 5
Casa Brigitte is a warm, welcoming, beautifully clean house that we didn’t want to leave. It is well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. It has private courtyard areas but with the option of using the pool and grounds of the stunning Quinta do Sobral. Bernhard and Brigitte are excellent hosts. We found them extremely friendly, helpful and always approachable. We would recommend Casa Brigitte to others without hesitation.
