A newly renovated farm cottage with character.

Casa Rustica

  • 1 of 5

Casa Rustica is kleine (1/3) en intieme (maar donkere) helft van twee onder een kap.

Inrichting is goed maar erg gedateerd. Het grotere buurhuis is inmiddels gerenoveerd, update zou ook hier geen kwaad kunnen.

Zeker voor verblijf met kinderen is huis (zeker als het warm is) minder geschikt: geen zwembad of zwemwater in de buurt. De in de beschrijving genoemde rivier is weliswaar (kruipdoor/sluipdoor) op loopafstand maar daar niet geschikt om te zwemmen. Eerste goede (en mooie) gelegenheid is in Goïs, zo'n 20 minuten rijden.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay at Casa Rustica. The weather was particularly hot while you were there and I understand that this influenced you to leave before the end of your holiday to go to the seaside. Unfortunately this did not give you enough time to discover other the beautiful places in the area like Avo and Coja and yes Gois is very nice too. The cottage is advertised as a rustic 2 bedroom cottage and the photos do show that the decoration has an antique charm, this is reflected in the price as the cottage is much cheaper than the larger farmhouse next door. I understand your comment that the living room is a little dark but this also has the advantage of keeping it nice and cool when it is very hot. I have now added an extra lamp for the evenings. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Portugal which I believe is a very beautiful country.

Maison Rustique Alagoa

  • 4 of 5

Maison facile à trouver à la campagne proche de la ville, propre et confortable. Propriétaire accueillante avec qui il fait bon parler anglais. La région est magnifique et le centre d'Arganil est agréable. De proches plages fluviales magnifiques permettent de se baigner facilement et l'eau n'est pas froide. Comme d'habitude, les portugais sont sympas et accueillants ! De bons restaurants également .A recommander.

Un séjour très agréable et reposant!

  • 5 of 5

Un gîte spacieux et très bien équipé. Les équipements extérieurs sont complets également. La région est très reposante et on peut rayonner autour d'Arganil assez facilement.

L'accueil des hôtes fut très agréable.

Le village est agréable et les portugais sont adorables.

Nice house with lovely views.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house that had been recently renovated and was absolutely charming with everything that we needed for our 2 week stay. We spent a lot of our time at the various river beaches in the area and made good use of the BBQ in the garden. Definitely recommend for a family or group of friends.
