Grandma's House has everything you need for a peaceful holiday. There are three spacious bedrooms , a comfortable living area and kitchen, whilst outside there is an enclosed garden , complete with barbeque area , where you can pick your own oranges from the tree . There are numerous walks in the area and the local town of Proenca A Nova is only five minutes drive away. It was our first visit to the area and it will not be the last.

                                                                                                    Casa Marques is a charming holiday cottage nestling on a south facing hillside with uninterrupted views stretching as far as the eye can see over wooded hills and valleys. A large swimming pool with comfortable loungers is where we spent most of our days taking turns to climb the dozen steps to replenish glasses of gin and tonic with ice from the freezer and lemons and limes plucked from trees in the garden. Shopping presented no problem whatsoever there being a well stocked supermarket with helpful staff, including a butcher who advised us on the best choice for the barbecue,only a few miles away. We also topped up our provisions when stopping at our "local" minimarket/café for a coffee or beer. Here despite their English being on a par with our Portuguese we always came away with a smile and exactly what we needed! The villa's purpose built barbecue we found invaluable being so easy to light and to cook on. We found driving in this part of Portugal no bother at all with motorway access about 100metres from the airport, stretching to about 15 minutes to Marques itself and minor roads practically devoid of other users. All in all a great holiday for chilling out and one that we wished we had stayed longer

It is beautifully presented and equipped and is the ideal location for quiet lazy days by the pool with a chilled beer and something sizzling on the bbq. It is also well located for days out - during our stay we sampled the buzz of Lisbon, the culture of Coimbra, the excitement and beauty of kayaking on the Mondego river and the affordable and often excellent local restaurants. The holiday achieved the near impossible - leaving adults, teenagers and young children all agreed that they had a great time and keen to go back. Thanks very much.
