Faultless accommodation, with superb hosts in a beautiful rural setting

5 of 5
Our expectations were exceeded! We arrived to warm greetings, a fridge full of food and a roast chicken! The accommodation was superb with great attention to detail. From the lounge and the terrace we enjoyed wonderful panoramic views across the surrounding countryside. We stayed a week and found plenty to do including trips to Obidos, Buddha Eden, the coast and mountains and windmills inland - as well as walking in the extensive grounds of QBV. All in all, the best self-catering accommodation that we have ever stayed in!

Wonderful stay at Manuels beautiful house in Alcanede.

5 of 5
We had a wonderful 5 day stay in this beautiful house on a hilltop in Alcanede. The owner Manuel could not have been more helpful or friendly and we enjoyed both the house and the location as it allowed for short visits to the historic towns of Obidos and Tomar which are in close proximity. Our young daughter enjoyed feeding the fish in the small pond at the end of the garden and the views in the morning over the valley looking directly at Alcanede castle are breath taking. We highly recommend a stay at this house.
