This semi-detached cottage is located in a well preserved typical Ribatejo hamlet which has 2 restaurants/cafes. There is a small garden (200 sq.m) with several mature fruit trees (lemon, pomegranate, kaki, walnut), and a magnificent linden tree under which you can spend a lazy Summer afternoon in an hammock by the swimming pool (6m x 3m) or have a Ping-Pong game under the shade. There is an open sun deck area with a barbecue and pool shower and also a large covered eating and relaxing area. The house was imaginatively restored to modern standards in 2008 retaining only the outer facade. The whole south side of the house is in glass and rustic brick projecting the kitchen/dining area and the living room into the secluded walled garden. It is a great location for touring, and Santarem (known as Portugal's Gothic capital) is only 4km to the South with plenty of shops, cinemas etc. The area is steeped in history and there is also a direct motorway link to the coast about 30 minutes away and good restaurants all around. The cottage is fully licensed with the local Council under the Alojamento Local scheme which ensures compliance with safety standards

Great cottage with excellent facilities. Cottage was clean and tidy. The boys loved the pool and the table tennis was a welcome addition. Lots of shaded space to take a break away from the sun. The locals in the village were extremely friendly, we felt right at home!!! .
Marvelous stay, great atmosphere.
Our stay at the cottage was fabulous, a lovely property, clean and comfortable, well maintained gardens and pool, The village was very charming with a couple of friendly and welcoming bars within walking distance. The nearest town was a short drive away and there are lots of amazing places to eat with friendly people - great food at very good value. A little further afield there are lots of places to visit, from the busy bustles of Lisbon to the amazing experience in the caves at Mira de Aire. We would highly recommend a stay at the cottage in this fabulous country - the weather was perfect!
A great Villa
great place, lovely location, pool great, villa great, you can't fail to enjoy yourself here.
beau gite rural
beau gite meublé avec goût et qui nous permet de nous immerger dans le quotidien des portugais. Avons apprécié l'ameublement. La piscine très agréable et le jardin boisé. Proche de tous les sites à visiter comme Sintra, Lisbonne, Fatima, Péniche, Nazareth, etc....La ville la plus proche est Santarem qui est une ville médiavale très agréable. Seul bémol les aboiements des chiens et la proximité de la route bruyante.

Azoia de Baixo is a perfect location for touring as it is very close to several places of interest like Santarem, Lisbon, Fatima, Obidos, Tomar and Coimbra, and also Nazare, Peniche, Aveiro etc. on the Atlantic coast, are all within 1 hours drive. Porto is only 2 hours drive away, and the Algarve also has a direct motorway access and is about 3 hours away.

The cottage is in the Ribatejo region located on the Tagus river north of Lisbon. It is known for its farming, horses, bull-fighting and wine production but is also a region steeped in historical monuments. The countryside is ideal for walking and cycling. In our road there is a small horse riding stable providing lessons and carriage rides. This is not an area of mass tourism. The people in this region are very honest and friendly and you are assured of a warm welcome. The regional food is excellent. There are open markets every weekend somewhere close by, and the towns have large supermarkets and all the other likely needs for your stay.
