“Perfect location to relax and unwind”
Reviewed December 21, 2011

I was on a solo bike tour of Northern Spain and Portugal and stayed in early Spring this year. The location of this house is beautifully secluded in a pine forest and felt like the perfect place just to get away from it all. There is a river right next to the house where you can swim and acres of surrounding woodland where you can get walk all day on your own or with the owners dogs, Donald and Mickey. The room I stayed in was quiet, overlooked the river and was very well equipped with everything you could need. Sandra and Lex, the Dutch owners, are typically relaxed and welcoming and will give you lots of information on what to do in the surrounding area.

Stayed in 'the house on the hill' for three days last summer. For me, this is one of the most beautiful places in Portugal. Close to Coimbra and Bucaco. The casa is really comfortable. Very good beds and fully equiped apartments with big terraces. I really enjoyed the company of our hosts, Sandra and Lex, as well. Laid-back people with a good taste for wine and spices. They can expect me back next year.
