Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Pombal, Portugal your home away from home

The town of Pombal on the Silver Coast of Portugal is tucked between the Atlantic Ocean and the mountains. It was founded in the 12th century by the Knights Templar and is dominated by a stately castle which was built by the Master of the Templars, Gualdim Pais. According to legend, the name of Pombal, which means “dovecote”, was given to the town when the king saw many pigeons on the castle’s battlements.

We can only agree with all other reviews - the house is great, location perfect and the hosts are the best. We enjoyed literally every minute we spent there. If one is looking for a quiet countryside holiday, look no further. Although it's located in a peaceful and quiet location, it is close to the Atlantic ocean (fantastic beaches - 35 km), Lisbon and Porto is 1,5 hours away, different activities and supermarkets are close by. The house itself has 3 great bedrooms, excellent wi-fi, private pool and big hot tub. The house is obviously meant for 6 people to sleep in, but the outdoors and living area are great for entertaining. Everything works great, kitchen has every imaginable appliance and you will never run out of plates, glasses or utensils. But, as all other reviewers said, the best about this house is its owners - they are honest and hard-working people with true hospitality in their hearts. All three of them met us despite us arriving late at night and had purchased food for our family - it was so touching and thoughtful! They respected our privacy during all stay, but we could notice they had been taking care of all the little things to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Thank you, Otilia, Antonio and Miguel for letting us stay in your beautiful home! Many houses are great, but they lack a true heart. It was you who added to our much needed holiday something more than we could have expected. Thank You and may God bless you!
