The local Market town of Figueiro Dos Vinhos is on 4 klm away, and has all amenities including, two supermarkets, a library, an indoor pool, shops bars and cafes. The internet space is open 6 days a week from 10am -7pm and is free to use.. The local market day is Saturday, where you'll find all manner of beautiful fresh food and an abundence of local 'colour' . We are well positioned for all of Central Portugal being 2 hours from Lisbon or Oporto, 45 mins from Historic Coimbra and an hour from the Silver Coast.

The whole of Central Portugal abounds with places of interest, historic sites, like the vast Roman Ruins at Conibriga only 30 mins drive away, and wonderful castles including Penela, Pombal, and not forgetting the jewel in the crown of the Knights Templars, fantastic Tomar, The Convento Do Cristo. All less than an hours drive away.

If just relaxing and taking in the scenery is more your choice, then the crystal clear lakes and rivers of the area, many with their own purpose built fluvial beach, are the places for you. Here you'll find peace and tranquility, fresh air and fragrant forests, wild flowers blooming most of the year round, the unspoilt Portugal that retains its own unique atmosphere and culture, donkey carts and women carrying shopping the traditional way... on their heads...

Here you can still eat out in a local restaurant for less than 10euros per head, and that includes wine. Fresh produce is to be found in the local markets, eating outside is common, we provide a large outside cooking and eating area specificly for you to do just that. The above ground pool and pretty sundeck are private and peaceful, and receive good sun exposure from early morning to late evening. There is a cool and shady vine covered seating /eating BBQ area when you wish to cool off... perfect for those warm summer evenings with a glass or two of our local wine...
