The cottage was what we wanted - a traditional and rustic escape in the country. As such, it was decorated so. It was interestingly furnished with antiques and old artefacts and the beds were extremely comfortable. Clean throughout and well stocked with the essentials. No bath, but 2 clean and comfortable shower rooms. It was a little cold at first but being a stone cottage that is expected - the fire soon warmed the place up! Be aware that the kitchen is tiny, but perfectly functional. Manuel, the owner could not have been more helpful, delivering logs and bread daily and having milk and basic provisions there on our arrival. The cottage is perfectly placed for visiting the area...Tomar and the Convention do Cristo is 20 minutes away. We particularly loved (and thoroughly recommend) the Taverna Antigua, a medieval restuarant in Tomar... dams, lakes, mountains, caves, dinosaur footprints, Batalha, Fatima to name but a few all within 50 minutes. A very enjoyable stay that took us back in time!

Great assistance, before visit, from Simona and Wilf. Would highly recommend and would love to return to a magical part of real Portugal. Thank you, Simona!
