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.
Casa Almanzor is an absolutely beautiful villa, situated in a small valley overlooking vineyards and farmland. With mountains in the distance the situation of the villa is perfect! The house itself is immaculately furnished and has everything you need for a perfect stay. The pool is a great size and has plenty of sunbeds and sunshades and overlooks the valley. There is a separate barbecue area with patio furniture and large parasol.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Almanzor and the owners were so welcoming and on hand close by if we needed anything. I can not recommend this villa and the area of Alcobaça enough. Thank you!
