  • A wonderful, warm and welcoming stay to a fabulous beach house located at Costa de Lavos
    5 of 5

    Hi, we are 5 Australians who have just enjoyed Helena and Carlos' beach house. The location is superb, directly on the foreshore and the views are uninterrupted. The beach house has 3 outdoor spaces to enjoy and relax and the fitout is a fully functioning home. Casa na Areia has all household equipment, utensils and as advertised the photos are 100 percent the truth. You will love to explore the small village of Costa de Lavos where the beach house is located. Do visit the local female butcher. So helpful and very good meat. Also do enjoy the daily the fishermen's boats morning and night and watch the local excitement of that day's catch being unloaded. Of course you will need a car to stay at this beach house and from this location we explored local cities such as Aveiro, Coimbra, Nazarre and Obidos. It was so nice to come home after a day trip and prepare a feast each night (great kitchen) and to enjoy the terrace and the sound of the Atlantic Ocean as we slept. Helena and Carlos are very efficient and so hospitable. Nothing is too much trouble for them to organise, including a welcome meal cooked by a local lady and a GPS address that Helena sent us to find the house. The beach house is immaculately clean and so comfortable. Thank you sincerely Helena and Carlos for the enjoyment that you gave us. Suzie, Charmaine, Kerry, Kelly and Tommy. June 2018

    The house is in a brilliant location, set up in the hills on the edge of Figueira, with absolutely stunning views across the bay. It was spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped with everything needed for self catering, including a great barbecue on the terrace. We did find the bed a little hard, as others have commented, but otherwise it was all perfect. The use of the pool was a real bonus and it's one of the nicest pool areas we've ever had. The owners, Daniel and Elisabeth, really do care about their guests, and we very much appreciated all the effort they have put into providing such a fantastic holiday home. Highly recommended!
