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.

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

Beautiful Rural Retreat

4 of 5
Well furnished and equipped, set in the heart of rural Portugal. A peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of life. There is so much to see and do provided you are happy to drive everywhere. Fortunately the road network is amazing and incredibly quiet. We would have loved some bikes to use on the quiet local roads and explore the local area a little more. I think for us we were too far from the coast but that was a choice we made. There are river beaches locally. Tania was amazing; she went out of her way to get maps tor walking and nothing was too much trouble. Most helpful host ever!
