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.

Tivemos uma excelente recepção por parte da proprietária , que foi sempre muito simpática e atenciosa. Both the house and the garden are very charming. We had a wonderful few weeks relaxing with the family. Thank you Lidia, see you again in the near future! Noemia, Mark and family

We had two weeks of great weather enjoying some of the recommended walks and places by Dave and Corrine. This is our third visit to the Silver Coast and hopefully not our last, the people are very friendly and helpful even though we cannot speak Portuguese . The villa has everything you will need for your holiday, the information book supplied by Dave and Corrine is an excellent idea that we have never come across in all the years we have been renting. It is a very comfortable villa, clean and well equipped. I would have no hesitation in booking again.
