Arganil is the closest town with shops, supermarkets, restaurants, cafes etc.

The ancient university city of Coimbra is 45kms from here.

Approx. 60 kms away is the Serra de Estrela is the highest mountain in Portugal with spectacular views and ski slopes in the winter.

For those of you who have stayed at Casa de Xisto and those who are thinking of staying there I would like to let you know that after the terrible fires in our area the house remains undamaged! The land below the garden was burnt down to the bottom of the valley but there are already seeds growing through the ashes and we are beginning our replanting project with fruit trees, vines and olives. Please do not give up on the house as more than ever we need people to come and visit the area and bring with them some trade to the area. The calendar has been blocked untill the beginning of December but for anyone interested in staying there please get in touch.

Um óptimo lugar para relaxar com os amigos

  • 4 of 5

A proprietária fez com que nos sentissemos em casa. Decoração simples e de muito bom gosto. Casa com grande conforto térmico, sossegada e com uma fantástica vista. Perfeita para uma estadia de até 6 adultos ou 6 adultos e uma criança (em cama extra). Zona espectacular para quem gosta de turismo de natureza.

Trés agréable lieu de séjour

  • 4 of 5

Casa de Xisto est un gite rural tout confort et joliment décoré. Bien que situé dans un hameau reculé, en 1h à 2h de voiture nous avons pu visiter Porto, Aveiro, Coimbra pendant les quelques jours que nous y avons passé. Nous avons apprécié le calme et le charme de l'endroit et profité de l'accueil sympathique de Jane. Merci encore à elle.

Owner's Response: Obrigado por tomar o tempo para escrever uma recomendação para Casa de Xisto. Estamos satisfeitos que vocês gostaram do casa e da paisagem que o rodeia. Casa de Xisto é uma ruína reconstruída, que foi adaptada a oferecer condições de férias confortáveis em um ambiente relaxante. Esperamos que os nossos futuros hóspedes também podem desfrutar da paz e da bela paisagem rural envolvente. Esta casa de férias é anunciado com 3 quartos e 1 casa de banho para 6 pessoas. Muitas famílias em férias juntos ter nenhum problema com o compartilhamento de uma casa de banho, no entanto entendemos que algumas pessoas preferem mais privacidade e tem duas outras casas de férias na região de Arganil com 3 quartos e 2 casas de banho. Ambos os Casa de Alagoa e Casa en Coja são anunciados em Home Away e Abritel, talvez possamos recebê-lo para uma dessas casas no futuro.

Très agréable e calme.

Très agréable. Il était très facile de réserver et le service était très sympathique. Le rapport qualité / prix est très bon. La manière d'obtenir est un peu difficile, mais elle est payante. Je recommande.

Uma casa muito acolhedora, confortável e com uma paisagem encantadora. Ideal para uns dias de descanso e de pausa na vida agitada que todos levamos.

Adorei aquele cantinho maravilhoso e vou voltar ...
