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.
This really is a magnificent manor house. It's actually much bigger and even more splendid that the impression the pictures give! It's very well equipped with everything you could need for your stay and wonderfully clean too. The garden area has a lovely pool that must be about 8m x 4m, a bbq area and lovely big table for lunchtime and evening meals. When we arrived in Golega, Helena and Alex met us in person to show us around the house and also took us on a tour of the village to show us their local recommendations. There is a fantastic restaurant 5 mins walk away overlooking the main horse training square. There are also museums, parks , cafes, the beautiful church and perhaps most impressively the house and studio of the famous photographer Carlos Relvas. We spent a fantastic 10 days at the house and it was a real highlight of the holiday. We would thoroughly recommend it and would love to return again ourselves one day. Thank you!
