“Fiona and Steve - thank you so much for your friendly and helpful hospitality. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house, which was extremely clean, tidy and very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped, the bed super comfy and the use of an Amazon fire stick made it feel more like a home away from home. We absolutely loved the eco pool, especially when swimming alongside tadpoles and admiring the frogs on the lilypads! We would also suggest to opt for the delicious pizza evening that Fiona and Steve offer, which are freshly cooked in the pizza oven. Overall, we would 100% recommend their house to stay in, if you fancy a home away from home/relaxing break accommodation. 5 stars!!! Thanks again 😊”
Situada no centro da vila do Avelar, esta espaçosa casa é perfeita para famílias ou grupos. Encontra-se fora da envolvente urbana mas com boas acessibilidades a pontos de elevado interesse natural como a aldeia do casal de São Simão, praia fluvial das Fragas de São Simão, Cascata da pedra da ferida, castelo de Penela, entre muitos outros.
“We had a wonderfully stay!!! They were waiting for us when we got there to give us a house tour and also delight us with some local goodies. The place was impeccable. Beds were comfortable and plenty of blankets to keep us warm. We spent some quality time as a family and were able to enjoy the great deck for a BBQ. I would definitely recommend this place. Thank you for the hospitality!!”
Stone house set in the beautiful surrounding countryside, located between Tomar and Coimbra. 100 sqm, 3 bedrooms, 6 people, large plot of land with spring water, olive and fruit trees. PORTUGAL REAL! Alojamento Local n° de registro: 16281/AL.
“The residence is easily accessible by car and is completely as described in the advertisement: a renovated, typical Portuguese cottage where all modern accommodations are available, with a beautiful garden where fresh fruit is abundant during the summer, located at the end of the street, which ensures peace and tranquility. The welcome is very cordial; the host lady, her husband and her brother are fantastic people who try to make the stay as pleasant as possible and who know the area perfectly - which is particularly interesting both for the purchase of food and for excursions. The location of this property is perfect for those who want to get to know central Portugal better: the cities of Coimbra, Tomar, Figuera de Foz, Nazaré, Pombal and Fatima are all about an hour's drive away, and Porto and Lisbon are only an hour and a half away. In the village there is a bakery that is open every day, there are two small shops where you can buy the basic necessities, and there are a few bars where you can have a drink. There is also a pharmacist. The people are very friendly. Casa das Oliveiras is perfect for those who really want to experience Portuguese life for a few days or weeks.”
