Casa da Taberna Velha ... In the old Taberna House there was an old tavern that inspired its name and served drinks and snacks until the 60's, when the business was closed, and later it was inhabited. The building became degraded having been acquired in 2006, when it began to be recovered for housing, respecting its popular moth. The garden, very degraded, has been recovered, has 2 spaces for meal abroad. The upper floor was intervened and made habitable. In 2016/2017 the house was the subject of a second intervention and registered as Local Accommodation. The garden, currently has two patios and grassed area. The tavern was preserved as a memory of the activity of other times and could be used as a convivial space. Accessibility ... In the center of the country: 200 Km from Lisbon; 130 km from Porto; 25 Km from Coimbra; 15 Km from Figueira da Foz. The Casa da Taberna Velha is located in the historic center of the old and quiet village of Montemor-o-Velho whose origin is linked to the presence of the imposing castle that was once part of the defense line of the city of Coimbra. Inside the castle grounds and in the center of the village, one can admire sculptural examples of the Renaissance master João de Ruão. Through the narrow and winding streets, the medieval layout of the village is discovered, towards the castle where Inês de Castro's order of execution began, among other episodes in Portugal's history. The proximity of the city of Coimbra allows a visit to Quinta das Lágrimas, the scene of the loves of Pedro and Inês, important historical monuments and urban areas recognized as World Heritage. In the heart of Baixo Mondego, the village is dominated by the attractive landscape of maize and rice crops. The presence of the Olympic rowing lane provides another reason for interest, and the proximity of Figueira da Foz feeds the sun and sea. At 4 km the river beach of Ereira is another space to be enjoyed by visitors in summer. Known for the excellent convent confectionery originated from the Convent of the Carmelites, the village of Tentúgal is located 10 km. Nearby are also the cities of Leiria and Aveiro 48 km and 52 km, respectively. The modesty of this village and the characteristics of the Casa da Taberna Velha allow the tranquility of the family or friends, and are excellent spaces for rest, reflection, reading and writing. There is in Montemor-o-Velho an excellent municipal library, also having the house of a small Room / Library. Pedestrian or bicycle tours allow the discovery of the village whose annual festival takes place in the first week of September.

Todo perfecto y seriedad
Todo muy bien la verdad es muy recomendable y tiene un buen tamaño
Spacieux et charmant
La maison est en plein centre, en dessous de la magnifique forteresses. Bel espace :
en montant l'escalier (raide !), on découvre 4 pièces au premier étage de la maison: deux chambres, une bibliothèque, et un grand espace salon, salle à manger et cuisine. C'est meublé a l'ancienne, la bibliothèque est très jolie. 2 salles de bain. En plus de ça, il y a une terrasse (on peut manger dehors) et un jardin à l'arrière.
On a passé 2 nuits. On serait bien resté plus longtemps, le village est agréable et bien situé, pas loin de la mer et pas loin de Coimbra. Bonnes liaisons par la route.
Le propriétaire, Raul, parle un excellent français et nous a accueilli très chaleureusement. Nous avons très apprécié ses explications sur le vin et le porto.
Vivement recommandé : aux amateurs de vieille pierres, de calme, de contact humain.
Je ne savait pas que l´on pourrait faire des commentaires dans cette plateforme, je vien de le découvrir...
Merci, merci beaucoup de vos mots, très gentilles et sympas.
Il a été très agréable de vous recevoir chez nous, vos parents sont aussi très, très agréables, peut être un jour on se retrouvera pour un autre verre de Porto et échanger nos expériences de vie…

Montemor o Velho is located in the central zone of the country, in the Low Mondego, a fertile region where rice and corn crops predominate, shades of green from where the view spreads, from the top of the Castle of Vila. The proximity of the beach of Figueira da Foz also allows the visit to the old warehouses and Museum of Salt. The central location and ease of access makes this Vila an excellent starting point for visits to nearby cities such as Coimbra, Aveiro, Leiria, Viseu, Lisbon or Porto, rich in historical and cultural interest.
