Thank you, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay, as you say it is a great base if you want to explore the area. You could have gone to Porto or Aveiro on the train from Mortagua if you didn't fancy the drive, it only takes an hour. We hope to see you again in the future. Viv

“Casa Vista Estrela Superb House, beautiful area.”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 for a stay in September 2013

My husband, sister her 2 grandchildren and I stayed in this beautiful homely house which has everything, space good decore and well furnished has large kitchen with dining area. The villagers are very friendly and try communicate if you dont speak Portuguese, there are rural forest walks or relaxing days around the pool with lots of sitting areas either in our out the sun, dine alfresco using the outside fitted barbecue, there is a large table so everyone can sit tog and eat, enjoy the home baked bread which is delivered reg along with fish, meat and veg. The nearest town is called Montague where you can stock up with groceries enjoy a drink or meal which are very cheap. We found some lovely places to visit up in the mountain or down the many river beaches around. I cant remember the name of these places but Phil and Viv the owners can give advice on the area without been intrusive, there are leaflets in regard to the area Coimbra is a university town with lovely views from the university looking down upon the river where you can also have a boat ride or sit enjoying a nice cool drink, there is a tour bus which takes you up to the university if you dont fancy the uphill walk but if you are able to walk up there are interesting sights and shops on the way. Another place to visit is Penacova you park in the square at the top walk over to the railings and marvel at the views again looking down on the river, the restaurant there is very nice more expensive than some but good food. If you want to swim or sunbath there is a man made beach on the bottom road youcan see from the view. We also went up the mountains and found this place with windmills which they converted into accommodation the views are breathtaking there is also a restaurant if needed. My husband and I love the area there is so much to see yet its quiet and relaxing roads very quiet feels very safe, cant wait to go again. This accommodation is superb one of the best we have ever stayed in yet it is a absolute bargain the cost of eating out so cheap, youl fall in love with it as we have done.

Thank you for your review, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. As you say the house is located in a quite village and you do need a car to explore the many beautiful places in the area, but what an ideal place to come back to, relax in the garden, have a barbeque and a dip in the pool in the knowledge that you are totally private. There are lots of festivals in the area in the summer months, if you wanted to explore the local culture a little more, we do try to get provide as much information as we can so you have that option if you wish, some of these go on until the early hours of the morning and normally have live bands and plenty of food. We hope to see you again in the future, once again thank you. Viv
