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.

A lovely piece of rural Portugal

4 of 5
This quirky Villa is surrounded by farmland in a rural part of Central Portugal. The garden and pool are lovely with lemon, orange and Avocados gowing on the trees. Also there is a lovely outside cooking,dining and seating area close to the pool so al-fresco living should be easy in the summer. We stayed at the villa in January so needed the electric radiator and fire especially after dark. Ana the owner was delightful from begining to end; providing good information on how to access the villa and quickly dealing with any queries we had whilst we were there. The position of the villa was ideal for visitors with a car but most things were a short drive away rather than within easy walking distance. Best of all a train link to Lisbon is available in the nearby town which makes a visit to the Portuguese Capital very stress free. Rooms in the villa are light and airy with an abundance of tiles as is traditional in the area. There is room at the dining table for up to 8 people but for winter stays be aware that the lounge area only seats 4/5 (During the summer I suspect most of the time will be spent in the lovely area aroud the pool so this should not be a problem) All the basic ammenities are there but some (such as the fridge with its very small (for 8) freezer compartment and the chipped crockery) are becoming a little dated. This would seem to be an excellent Villa for dog lovers as without really trying I counted a dozen dogs roaming the surrounding farms. Conversely if you do not like dogs or indeed the noise they make this might not be your number one choice for a summer holiday. Overall a quirky villa with a lovely host. An authentic taste of rural Portugal
