“Couldn't be better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Fantastic B&B! We enjoyed our stay from start to finish: very friendly welcome, clean and beautiful room with comfortable bed, delicious breakfast, excellent location, refreshing pool with amazing view, ... What we loved the most was the warm and helpful approach of the hosts, Angelique and Frederik. They give amazing advice on what to do and where to eat and they really make you feel at home!

This is by far the best B&B we have ever experienced, we can't wait to go back!
Thank you, Angelique and Frederik, for making our stay so lovely.

This stay was not planned. We had spent a 3 days in Lisboa and we were heading back to Porto. We stayed 4 days with our teenagers (16/14) in the B&B of Angelique and Frederique. We enjoyed very much our stay. Nice clean rooms, good breakfast. Very nice pool.
Close tot the B&B you have a couple of good restaurants at very very democratic prices.
We recommend this address.

My husband and I spent two nights here in early June. After spending time in Porto and Lisbon it was nice to get away and into the mountains. The house has been modernized and is spotless. Our room was very large and quiet. Angelique and Frederic were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome. They gave us great recommendations for the local restaurants as well as things to do. They also provided a nice breakfast each morning and were very accommodating to each guest's morning schedule. Easy to drive to Coimbra and Serra Do Buscaco for a day trip from there. Had we more time, we would have spent a day just lounging by their pool as it looked very inviting.

After three days in Lisbon we were delighted to stay at this peaceful well appointed guest house. It was handy for day trips and welcoming to come home to. Angelique and Frederic gave us excellent and varied suggestions for dinners out. We extended our stay a further two days as we were enjoying ourselves so much. We even chose this as a base to explore Porto rather than move on. Breakfasts on the terrace were memorable. We would love to return.

Room Tip: They were all excellent. I would prefer one of the lower eones with a terrace and each of those had...

We would highly recommend this B&B. The rooms are nicely decorated, the breakfast is delicious and the view is beautiful. There are a couple of very good restaurants within a few minutes drive and a couple of day excursions with fantastic views. It was such a treat to be off the tourist path after several weeks of traveling to all the hot spots in Europe. It was very calming.

Talented and friendly Frederik and Angelique are a charming couple who have created a pristine oasis in the countryside outside of Coimbra. Just use your GPS-it's a pretty 30 minute drive from and/or the historic treasures of Coimbra! This is a deluxe bed and breakfast at a reasonable price. I really appreciated the tranquil and soothing accommodations, amazing breakfasts, and warm hospitality of this couple.......as did many other reviewers!

We spent three days at Casa nas Serras and loved this place from the very first moment. It looks just as great as on the website's pictures, and Angelique and Frederik make you feel like being at home. We very much enjoyed the rich breakfast on the terrace with a splendid view into the green mountains, and a swim in the big pool. The room was nicely decorated and the bed was just amazingly comfortable. As the surrounding area offers many things to do (we drove to Coimbra and went canoeing on the Mondego river), Casa nas Serras is a great starting point for excursions. A place to remember and a place to recommend!
