Guests at Casa do Limao enjoy exclusive, private use of the villa, pool and gardens. The property has been described by our guests as 'home from home' as it is so well equipped for a comfortable stay.

As well as providing guests with a fantastic base for a sunshine break - our log fired central heating makes the property a great choice for a winter break too! Popular as a romantic getaway and we also attract many house hunters in the off peak months.

What can I say about this gem , other than beautiful. Fell in love with it as soon as we walked through the gates. This is not a holiday let, it is a home and as such was really well equipped. Not 6 of everything and threadbare sheets. Well stocked kitchen, lovely bedding and towels. Couldn't fault it. The views from the bedrooms stunning, the pool and BBQ area a delight, and the games room...

Management response:

Wow - our reviews are always a delight to read, and this one is no exception! We love the place, and clearly you did too - it has been an absolute pleasure to have you as guests at Casa do Limao - thank you so much! Marta

We fell in love the minute we opened the gate. This charming home offers an in ground pool, well furnished living area, games room and lots of outdoor seating. We spent lazy days in and around the pool and beautiful evenings enjoying dinner on the bbq under the stars. Centrally located for access to Viseu (we loved) Coimbra (university city) and day trips to the coast and Duoro Vally. Highly recommend this lovely home.

Management response:

What a fantastic review - I am so glad that your stay was so memorable! It sounds as though you did loads, and relaxed too - please come again and thank you for taking such good care of our much loved house!

We stayed for a week in May and had a fantastic time; the house is beautiful in an idyllic setting-so tranquil and peaceful. The house is tastefully furnished and equipped, making it feel more like a dream holiday home than a holiday rental! We made good use of the pool (gorgeous) and the BBQ (tasty local steaks!). We explored the surrounding area a little, we drove down to Coimbra and went to Quinta da Conchada...

Management response:

Wow! What a lovely review! Thank you so much for letting us know that you had a wonderful holiday - you would be welcome again anytime! Kind regards, Marta

Casa do Limao is very pretty and comfortable, with everything needed available (also a washing-machine which I think is not mentioned in the house description) and in a very quiet neighbourhood. We appreciated a lot the closed courtyard where we ate everyday. Only one thing to prevent us from concluding that all was absolutely perfect: a petrol smell just in front of the entrance door, which enters the living-room when the door is open. Marta...

Management response:

Thank you for your lovely review Nadine - I know from your emails that you enjoyed your break at Casa do Limao! I am fairly sure that the petrol smell has now gone, as it was a treatment for the stone work that was applied a couple of weeks before your visit, but hope that it didn't affect your stay...

We stayed here for two weeks, it was a perfect villa so many say their kitchens are fully equipped but are not, this one is; the flattened screens on the ground floor speed and Windows gives good air flow minus bugs, WiFi was good, entertainment system could be better no Sat channels at all so take enough DVD s there are some there but also a few empty cases worth bearing in mind as the...
