Things to do

-Monuments: Among Coimbra’s most celebrated monuments is the Biblioteca Joanina at the Paco das Escolas. You don’t have to be a bookworm to fall for the charms of this beautiful library. Its construction began in 1717 under the watchful eye of architect Gaspar Ferreira. With ceilings covered in intricate murals and lavishly decorated doorways, it’s little wonder this centuries-old library is considered one of the prettiest in the world.

-Ancient churches: As evidence of the strong bond between religion and Coimbra’s history there are several medieval churches dotting this part of Portugal. The Igreja e Mosteiro is one of the more fascinating of these edifices and has been made a national monument. Visitors will be enchanted by the lovely arches and ribbed ceiling of this 12th century monastery. The Old Cathedral of Coimbra is one of Portugal’s most important Romanesque churches.

-Museums: More on this region’s heritage can be found in the museums of Coimbra. Materials used to teach Mathematics and other subjects in the 17th century can be seen in the Cience Museum. These materials mainly consist of Azulejos, decorated square tiles. The Museu Nacional de Machado de Castro contains a lot on Roman history.

-Concerts: To get a taste of Portuguese culture, residents of Arganil holiday homes will want to visit the fado houses of Coimbra. These are places where they can enjoy live music by talented local artists as well as rub shoulders with locals in a lively atmosphere. One of the more popular of these establishments is the aCapella on Rua do Corpo. As they snap their fingers to the captivating tunes, revellers can also feast on bitings and sip their choice poison.

-Nature: Coimbra has its fair share of greenery and those who are nature lovers or just need the verdant serenity of trees to relax can visit the Choupal National Forest. Here they can walk through the trails at a leisurely pace drinking in the peaceful ambiance or stop at the cafeteria and have a drink. Another place in this locality that can serve the same purpose is the Jardim Botanico. This park is particularly popular with romantic couples.

Beautiful location. Great for peace, quiet and walks.

4 of 5
My wife and I had a really relaxing time. Hazel was very helpful and accommodating, with excellent recommendations for things to see and do. The only slight downside is there's nowhere within walking distance to eat or drink in the evening, but Arganil has some nice eateries (about 15 minute drive away).

Warm welcome - beautifully clean property

4 of 5
Martine and Dirk kindly waited for our delayed arrival, and welcomed us warmly with a lit fire and plenty of very much needed food and drink after a long journey. The house was exceptionally clean and well stocked with shampoo, Dove bars and loo roll. Also, plenty of towels and great kitchen equipment. We really enjoyed use of the bikes and proximity to lovely countryside and found umbrellas handy too! Although we had mixed weather, some of us braved the pool - and the BBQ was fun. We enjoyed the doors opening onto the exterior on both levels, and the garden's lawns and some lovely irises in flower in the raised beds and a young fig tree by the gate. Please plant an orange and lemon tree for the benefit of future visitors! We found this part of Portugal to be really interesting and varied - and very friendly. Many thanks.
