We spent a three-days stay at Casa do Alferes Curado in August 2011 and we had beautiful time there, thanks to the hosts, Gerard and Wilma, who gave us a warm welcome and make us feel at home, really.
The house is located in Maças de Dona Maria, a nice village in the Portoguese countryside, and is surrounded by quiet woods: there you can find complete calmness and spend some time in the pleasant pool, but in less than one hour by car you could reach many beautiful places to visit, such as Leiria, Coimbra, Tomar, Batalha, Ourém; in a little bit more even Alcobaça and Nazaré.
Our room was located at the first floor, with stone walls and wooden beams; it was very large, well lit and perfectly clean. The furniture was completely new and the bathroom had a wonderful modern look. The breakfast was large and tasty.
We really loved our stay there.
