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: terrace, pool and salt minibar, large enclosed garden, barbecue, drink on the patio area and local bicycle. 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. Penamor in December is renowned 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!

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!

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.

Top Location

  • 5 of 5

Located in an interesting part of Portugal (great nature, beautiful old towns and castles, not a busy region) is this house with swimmingpool situated at the end of a small road. It is a silent place, no traffic. 100% privacy. The house is nice. Cool in the hot summer, as long as you close the doors and windows by daytime. There is a patio and a very large garden where you can find shadow on many places. The garden is surrounded by nature. The (very nice) owners of the house live near by but not too close. Their English and French is better than my Dutch. We had a wonderful time there. Bring your own dvd's to use the tv, and expect not to heavy internet, but that is normal in parts of Portugal.

Hetty and Peter from Holland.

nice House, also war in wintertime.

  • 5 of 5

We are orienteeres from Germany and competed in Portugal-Orienteering-Meeting 2016. We had nice stay for 6 nights. Every think was clean and we had enough space to dry the clothes after each competition. The heating with the wood was no problem and brings a nice and warm atmosphere into the rooms. The owners of this small house are living nearby (maybe 2min of walk) and we could contact them every time to ask for help. The final cleaning was down by the onwers. If you planning your holiday there you should go to the famous rock/stone-village "Monsanto" and also visit the small town "Penamacor" Both f them you will reach within 15min of driving. Afterall we enjoyed our stay.
