About the property

Ideal location to discover the birthplace of Portugal and Geopark.

In the middle of a very quiet hamlet, a renovated cottage, on one level, which can comfortably accommodate 4 people, including 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a large living room open kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and woodstove providing central heating in winter. Outside: shaded terrace, salt pool and minibar, large fenced garden, barbecue, cocktail corner under the patio. The village is that 5 minutes on foot, the property is quiet, the silence interrupted by the neighbor's donkey or cow in the next field.

Aldeia do Bispo is 8 km from Penamacor, recently attached to UNESCO for its "Geopark", 17km from Monsanto, "the most Portuguese of all Portuguese villages". Penha Garcia Idanha a Velha and Sortelha worth a visit. Aquatic activities: the dam of Idanha nova (where stands the Boom festival every 2 years in August) offers various activities including jet skiing, pedal boating, swimming, canoeing. The villages all have a specific holiday each year: cheese festival, soup, sausage or honey. Penamacor in December is famous for its "Madeiro". If you come in November or December, you can make your own organic olive oil and bring home ...

Beautiful calm and peaceful quiet only disturbed by our families laughter!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing hosts who so kindly attending to each of our requests with helpful good humour and this is no way explains the tranquility and beauty of the gorgeous cottage :-) Although the roads (/tracks) around the property are a little tricky to traverse by car, they make really lovely early morning run trails and in combination with the delightful pool, I think I have returned home slightly fitter as well as being very much more tanned and relaxed than when I arrived! I can not recommend this cottage highly enough and am very much looking forward to returning --hopefully very soon!

Lugar ideal para fugir da rotina da cidade

  • 5 of 5

O local é bastante agradável, no meio de uma zona rural e florestal. Tem 2 árvores únicas (que fazem as delicias dos curiosos!) no espaço de quinta existente, entre videiras e outras árvores de fruto. Aproveitando os dias de sol e calor, a piscina dá frescura à zona envolvente e é o local de eleição dos mais pequenos.

Obrigado à Lola e à sua família pelo acolhimento e pelas dicas de locais a visitar ao redor!

Knus, vrij gelegen comfortabel huisje

  • 5 of 5

Gelegen aan de rand van een rustig dorpje staat dit prachtige, idyllische huisje. Binnen lekker koel en buiten diverse plekken om lekker te vertoeven. Om helemaal tot rust te komen.
