“Perfect accommodation, hosts and location”

We loved our time here, loads to see and do close by and a very comfortable base to relax in with everything you might need. The kitchen is so well equipped it was easy to cook a meal. Great shower, comfy beds, satellite TV, lovely outside spaces, parking, beautiful swimming pool, even beach/pool towels provided. We were grateful for the welcome pack which meant we didn't need to rush out to the supermarket. Ansiao is a lovely small town only a few minutes drive away with supermarkets, fuel, cafes, bars etc. A very non touristy area, it is very cheap to eat out and very good quality. Tania and Steve are great hosts - close by if needed whilst giving you privacy. There is a really useful info pack in the rental containing lots of tips and ideas for days out. Perfectly located to visit historic towns, the coast, rivers, local beauty spots, go for walks and a very easy drive from Lisbon on empty roads. Would recommend to anyone looking for accommodation in this area.

Situated in a rural olive grove but with easy access to major roads. The Estrella mountains and the coast are within easy reach by car. The town of Ansiao easily caters for your needs at the accommodation. This area shows true Portugal at its best.
Loved it.

“Wonderful welcome, very comfortable accommodation and peaceful location, perfect for a restful holiday”
Reviewed September 14, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Set amid olive trees and Portuguese oaks about 10 minutes drive from the small rown of Ansiao where you will find everything for your daily needs, Casa de Olival has virtually everything for a peaceful vacation for two or an energetic family holiday. We were greeted first by Eddie a very friendly dog followed hot on his heels by owner Tania, whose thoughtfulness and generosity are boundless. The welcome pack includes more than enough for your first breakfast and a bottle of wine cooling to greet you on arrival not to mention the 'accompaniments'. Towels are provided for the pool shared with the owners and local river beaches as well as regular bath towels. Tania provides excellent directions as to how to reach the casa as well as having a well-documented information file on everything within a wide radius.

P.S The Town of Ansiao is just over 2 kms away and only takes a few minutes to get to the centre.

Great place to stay for a family.this was my second time here and 3rd booked in october . Steve and tania are perfect host couldn't do enough for you the settings for the casa are perfect not to far from all the main routes to the high ways . I would highly recommend to stay here if on your own or with the family . The rooms are very cosy with a log burner for those early or late months of the year . Would go back in august but unfortunately it was booked . See you soon guys .

A lovely property surrounded by pines, eucalypts and small hamlets. Very clean and comfortable house, excellent Internet and close to Ansiao for shopping, good coffee and pastries.The swimming pool is pristine, and the two resident small dogs are lovely.
Tania was very helpful with organising our rental car and collecting it in Ansaio...much appreciated! It was an easy drive to exceptional sites such as Conimbraga and the hidden gems in Santiago da Guard castle and Roman house. The river "beaches" are beautiful, and driving easy on the very quiet roads.
