Everything is newly renovated, no neighbors more than the host couple's house on the plot, home-grown olive oil is available to buy
Feel free to try the restaurant below where Paulo will welcome you with a Portuguese menu and good wine. Three small supermarkets are in the village. Market every Monday in the village.
  • Wow! What a nice place! Hospitality plus. We wanted a quiet stay and experience a small village. Tord and Elizabeth were super friendly and helpful. Visiting towns in the area was really easy, everything was within a half hour away. Our host made sure we had plenty of oranges and he supplied us with his own olive oil in the kitchen. Nice touch. The town had coffee shops and food mart. There was a wonderful restaurant across the street . Needless to say we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back hopefully in warmer weather so we can enjoy your beautiful pool.

  • Neat cottage, pleasant decoration Very bright the apartment is spacious. Tord and Elizabeth are lovely hosts very attentive. Very nice stay, we will come back.

    Hubert2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • We came to this place to rest. And to our astonishment it was better than we imagine. Housing 2 minutes from the center of the village, several small local restaurants, activities along the river (15 minutes), not to mention the beautiful saltwater pool. Tord and Elizabeth are very hospitable. Upon our arrival, we had homemade olive oil in the accommodation, small touches ... The cleanliness of the housing and the environment is irreproachable. To believe that we are the first to come! It is 100% recommended Thanks again to Elisabeth and Tord for everything!

    Prisca2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Tord and Elisabeth are hosts of great kindness. The house is set back from the road, and is perfectly quiet. The saltwater pool is just exceptional. It really changes compared to more traditional pools. In addition, no vis-à-vis to use it, it's just happiness. The attentions offered on arrival complete all to offer us a great stay. Thank you very much Tord & Elisabeth, for all that. I highly recommend this address: to know and to share!

    Philippe2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Tord's and Elisabeth's place. The house is comfy, clean and is totally conformed to the pictures. And the pool and home-made olive oil were just great ! thanks for hosting us :)

    Elise2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • Hospitality 5 *, very clean and warm. Good access to Figueiró dos Vinhos and Ferreira de Zêzere for those who want to visit the river beaches. Totally recommend it! Sure we will be back.

    Tânia2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Tord and Elizabeth are great hosts, they are friendly and are very aware of all the needs and questions that may arise. They left us welcome details and were attentive upon our arrival. The house is ideal to spend a few days relaxing, you have all the necessary amenities to enjoy quietly and disconnect. Everything is in perfect condition. The area is beautiful and easily accessible by car to nearby towns and excursions.

    Rego Da Myrtle, Leiria, Portugal

    Lovely 2 bedroom cottage located close to the market town of Alvaiazere. Situated in a quiet village setting but with all amenities close to hand. The cottage has its own private swimming pool for guests to use, barbecue area and off street parking.
    Located in a quiet village close to town and not far from the cities of Tomar, Pombal and Alvaiazere. Although most amenities are within 3.5km, a car is strongly recommended. The surrounding area is rural and quite mountainous.
    The immediate neighbourhood is located at the foot of the mountain serra de alvaiazere which boasts an amazing view point. It is located approximately 3km from the town and has many interesting walks to explore. Alvaiazere itself has numerous bars and coffee shops, 2 supermarkets, restaurants and petrol station. In the summer the outdoor swimming complex is open to the public which is a great place to spend the day. Pombal aquaparque is also only a 40 minutes drive for a fun day out .
  • We love everything about Jim's house. I recommend it to anyone who needs rest.

    Vanessa2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great house, small but with the essentials for a peaceful stay. Fantastic pool.

    Rui2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great holiday week, ideal for those seeking tranquility in a quieter location.

    João Tiago2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • It is a simple house, but with everything needed, especially in the kitchen. It is very well equipped. It is a small house with small rooms but is very cozy. It was clean when we arrived. Even the pool was very clean and is an asset on hot days. The house is in a rural area, but in 5mins by car we are in the center of the village, where there are supermarkets, restaurants, pharmacy, good gasoline, etc. Alvaiázere is a good starting point for visiting other places nearby, such as Tomar, Ferreira do Zêzere, Leiria, Coimbra. I recommend Jim's house

    Joana2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Jim's house is so much better when we arrive than when we see the pictures! Jim is always available if you have any questions or problems and we can always count on him. We are close to several areas of incredible beauty (Agroal, Dornes, Zêzere ...) and at the top of the street there is a cafe "Tasca da Ti Maria" that is worth going, owner five stars.

    Fábio2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect space to relax, be with family and bigeye. The barbecue area is very good. There is a dining table in the kitchen (indoor), near the barbecue area and by the pool, which allows us to walk around to eat where it is best or to look at the sunset if we want. The pool is amazing. The house is small but perfectly suited to a family of 3/4. The kitchen is very well equipped. We liked a lot. The rear space of the house has potential for much more! Check in was friendly and informative.

    Sara2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Nice small place ,suitable for 2+children. A summer rental as it has a nice pool. Compact accommodation

    Philip2019-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very cosy house, I was there in november so too cold to use the swimmingpool. And I had wood to make it warm and cosy in the house. I loved to be there and would like to come back. Helle

    Isabelle2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Big house and nice backyard with fig trees. Great help with tips recommendations. We came with a small child and had bit difficulties with he stairs in the house, but it's a great place to stay. The hot water in the shower ended a bit fast. Bottom line - we really enjoyed it and recommend it

    Nizan2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really good time in Marias house, especially we enjoyed the garden and the little "pool", since it was some warm days. Marias brother met us for check in. He didnt speak any english but we managed to communicate in a fair mix of spanish and french and he brought a botthe if wine from his own produktion 😊 Maria communicated with us daily via whatsapp and gave some good tips on what to see in the area, we especially enjoyed the river beaches near by!! Note that the area is very rural and therefore expect some noise from dogs and roosters through the night. Earplugs are recommended if you are a light sleeper

    Amanda2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful and simple country house in the sweet village of Maças de Dona Maria. We thoroughly enjoyed the house, the garden, the BBQ, the local hospitality and above all - meeting Maria and her family. The house is well equipped. The garden is such a treat - all that space for the toddlers! The village is quiet with friendly and accepting locals. The locality exceeded our expectations hugely. So much to see and do! The river swims, the lakes, the nearby town of Tomar which is gorgeous (unfortunately we ran out of time to visit Coimbra).... we were a family of mum, dad, toddler and baby. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and most importantly we actually got to relax. Thank you Maria for sharing your beautiful country house and gardens with us.

    Amy2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    Walter2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Superb address full of charm! Ideally located between the cities of Coimbra and Tomar, this house is a true haven of peace with its garden lined with olive trees and its stone house with authentic charm. Maria Palmira and her husband welcomed us very warmly, gave us plenty of local addresses, took us to the city center ... amazing welcome! The house is beautiful and immaculately clean. There is everything we need! We highly recommend. Go ahead without hesitation!

    Simone2019-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • What a paradise!

    Kurt2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • Maria’s place is a lovely old place in a gorgeous quiet part of Portugal. The house is quaint, with a rambling garden, plunge pool and outdoor bbq area. Maria is very responsive and full of great local tips to explore the area. The bakery in town is excellent, and the takeaway shop has a small but great daily selection of home made food, but best not to leave it too late in the afternoon it it will be sold out! We had a lovely time in the country and really felt we were part of true “non touristy” portugal!

Good location to explore the region - Tomar, Bathala, Fatima, Coimbra, ...Our advise - don't hesitate, just book it! Katrien & Filiep

    Katrien2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Casper and Monique have put their heart and soul in this place and are probably the best hosts we’ve ever encountered!

    Mark2019-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely week in the B&B of Casper and Monique, who share a great level of hospitality and who feel the level of interaction and needs of theorie guests. The little cottage feels new and fulfills in all necessary needs. It's located on the B&B's compound with a nice pool and other 'attractions' like a pingpong table, a small playground and the area for the goats and chickens. It's quiet atmosphere and green hills reminded us a bit of a jungle feeling, which was very relaxing. Together with the hosts' attentiveness and cooking skills for breakfast and diner, it was all we needed for a good week.

    Stephan2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed 4 nights in the two-person house of Casper and Monique. It was by far the nicest and best stay of our 2.5 week vacation in Portugal. The cottage has a wonderful bed, a spacious shower, and there is a fantastic swimming pool and patio for relaxing. Casper loves sports so he also gave a master class table tennis and boxing training. The little kids next to the house were also hugely cuddly, fun for small and large children. The breakfast was very extensive with home-collected farm-fresh eggs, fruit, yogurt, and bread. And their little Joshua, 2 years old, provides entertainment. If you really want to relax, this is the right place.

    Jens2019-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • Monique and Casper are amazing hosts and the room is clean, comfortable and well equipped! The breakfast is exceptional and they also catered well for a vegetarian diet. A great place for a relaxing holiday :)

    Aleksi2018-10-29T00:00:00Z

    Olli2018-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Monique and Casper built their own little paradise. You can feel in every detail, that they love what they do and they do it with passion. We enjoyed the relaxing time on Portugals countryside a lot, beaches arent far away though so that it is located very nicely. Amazing garden, animals, homegrown vegetables and fruits (still dreaming of those figues) and Monique and Casper were very generous. Breakfast is perfect!! Thanks!

    Charlotte2018-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • We loved this place and the host. Casper is very helpful and greating.

  • WONDERFUL WONDERFUL WONDERFUL!!. Thank you so very much for such a wonderful visit and stay. You were all so welcoming and thoughtful and so very helpful and FUN! What a great visit. We wish we could have stayed longer. We will most certainly will return and visit Tomar the next time! We booked so last minute and I really appreciate your quick responses to all of our questions. It was super helpful to know that the restaurants were closed in the area on the night that we arrived so that we could grab some dinner on our way there. And we want to thank you for sharing your wonderful space and kitchen with us. The glass of wine with our dinner was so appreciated after the long drive from the Algarve. Breakfast and visiting and learning about your adventures was super fun. And your property was glorious.! I just can't say enough!

    Areias, Santarém District, Portugal

    We are Daan, Leentje and Juulke. A young Belgian family with a passion for adventure. As avid travelers, it was only a normal step to open a guesthouse where people can feel at home in a place far away from home. We found this beautiful 200 year old house in April 2017 in the middle of the olive trees in the region of Alvaiazere, Central Portugal. Let you be our first guest to step into the story of Ti' Ladeira. Together we can make it great for fellow travellers!
    This room overlooks the garden.This room is finished with the original old stone with which the house was built. The bathroom is next to the bedroom and is shared with one other room (if booked). In the room a place is provided to store all your bathroom items. Towels and sleep covers are included. The towels are not replaced daily. If you like to have new ones, they can be asked to us. We also try to think a bit about nature. Breakfast (included) consists of a mix of regional products such as local cheeses, meats and jams, but also the more well-known types of spreads. Eggs can be prepared on demand and as long as the chickens can follow they are free range. Of course there is a choice between coffee, tea, water and fruit juice. On a few evenings a week you can put your feet under the table for a family meal. This will be communicated during breakfast. You then let us know if you are interested or prefer to eat outdoors. We provide us with local wine and beers so you do not necessarily have to find a cafe if you feel like it. Tips about the environment and activities can always be obtained from us. We are happy to help you to make your holiday as pleasant as possible.
    Ti 'Ladeira is a small-scale tourism stay in a purely typical Portuguese setting. Located on the 'Caminho de Santiago de Compostella' with delightful little paved roads with olive trees and old fairytale oak forests. Ideal for a small evening walk or long hikes. We can provide you with all the tips. Would you like to seclude yourself in the garden and relax? Or would you like to share a glass with the other guests? Travel and vacation are concepts that have a different meaning for each individual. We like to create an atmosphere where all guests feel good. In our area you can eat out, but you prefer to stay on our yard then you can put your feet under the table and enjoy a delicious homemade meal. Our environment has a lot to offer. We are located between Coimbra and Tomar. Both certainly worth a visit. Ancient Roman sites, relics of the Templars, walks in nature. We also have a lot for the sports enthusiast. Or you can just quietly drink a coffee 'Bica' in our village (five minutes drive) and enjoy a typical Portuguese life from a terrace. A refreshing dive? You have a choice between river beaches or a quiet spot on the lake. All this at a 15 minute drive. Driving here is a pleasure, no crowds and a beautiful view. We provide a plunge pool that is large enough to have a few strokes in. Ideal for children or overheated parents. The seaside is one hour from our house, ideal for a day trip. More information about the environment can be found on the website (www.tiladeira.com).
  • Although the airbnb card did not work and we therefore arrived much later than expected at the location it was immediately made up on arrival. A beautiful quiet place, beautiful house, lovely people (and dogs) and delicious food! Everything we needed and more

    Liz2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re not travelling through the area, make the detour here. Stunning countryside views and exceptional hospitality. We’ll be back!

    André2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very beautiful and has been recently tastefully restored! It is situated in the middle of an olive grove, in a quiet area, close to other farms where we can still find very old oak and oak groves. Leentje and Dan are very friendly and welcoming and it was very easy and pleasant to talk to them! The room was comfortable and the breakfast and dinner were also very good! I will be back for sure and recommend this home to all who like to be silent and in close contact with nature.

    Filipa2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Ti'Ladeira, the place is peace and quiet, perfect to relax in the middle of nature. The house is cosy and comfortable, and the garden is absolutely beautiful. Many thanks for your hospitality, and for your kindness. Victoria and Ben

  • My brother and I stayed here for one night and we loved it! We had a delicious home-cooked meal and breakfast, and enjoyed playing with the dogs and checking out the beautiful view. Highly recommend staying here :)

    Hana2019-05-13T00:00:00Z
  • Leentje and Dan are awesome hosts. They created a warm atmosphere, it almost feels like you're part of the family. We had a great time there. The house has a lot of charme and the garden is lush and green. Since we don't eat meat we were super happy that Leentje acommodated us. Not only that, the food was fantastic. If you're in the area, this is the place to go. No question about it.

    Wonderful house to stay: spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, swimming pool, barbecue area, garden with 90 olive trees, 6 figs, an orange, lemon, apple etc. Fiber optic wifi, tv, modern decoration.
    During your stay at Casa Anna, there are many options for getting around. But it is not absolutely necessary! The house, swimming pool, terrace and garden offer so much, that just staying at home is a real option. What you can do – for example – is: Read a book under one of the many olive trees in the large garden of 8000m2. A refreshing swim in the pool and then relax on one of the sunbeds around the pool. Have an extensive lunch at the big table on the terrace or inside in the dining area. Walk around the village and have a drink at Cafe Simoes. At night you can see the huge starry skies. Or float a bit in the illuminated pool. During your stay you get access to all rooms except storage room, linen room and the shed. During your stay, the only people other than yourself who will occasionally be on site is the one to maintain the pool. Casa Anna is located one hour 20 mins drive north of Lisbon, in the Portuguese countryside. From medieval castles, river beaches to local markets: the region has a lot to offer! Tomar: ancient castle Convento do Cristo, headquarters of the Knights Templar and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site Castelo do Bode Lake: for hiking and watersports. Coimbra: 45 min drive to this medieval capital of Portugal and one of the oldest universities in Europe. Nazaré: lovely seaside village at about an hour’s drive. Fátima: pilgrimage You need your own transportation.

  • We (9 Finns in our thirties) had a great week at Casa Anna! The villa was beautifully renovated and there was a lot of space (to cook, eat, store our clothes and toiletries etc) yet it still felt cozy. The garden was blooming and the pool was big and steep enough for also us adults to enjoy. We highly recommend this place and hope to return! ☺️

    Anna-Maria2019-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very stylish. The outdoor areas are versatile and beautiful. Pure relaxation! The area is very rural and to the next town you drive 30 minutes. However, there are great sights and pretty little towns: Tomar, Coimbra, Fatima. And nature is also worth seeing.

    Vera@Die-Pfefferkoerner.De2018-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • The house is a wonderful place to relax and to stay with much persons. Comfortable rooms nearly each with an own bathroom and a very big and nice garden with old trees. We recommend Casa Anna.

    Nina2018-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Very spacious house with all the convenience, adapted for 12 people (7 adults and 5 children). The big garden and the swimming pool are just fantastic. There are games for children and for adults (ping pong table, bowling (pétanque), board games...) We spent really good times. I strongly recommend it for perfect holidays! Merci !!

    Nicolas2017-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay at Casa Anna! Accommodations perfectly suited for groups, the rooms are beautiful and spacious, the bathrooms superb and the kitchen functional and well equipped. The welcome from Miranda is warm and efficient, the small basket with the products made in Casa Anna top! The outside facilities are adapted, the swimming pool very pleasant and the track of pétanque has made the joy of the amateurs. In short, to recommend without moderation.

    Agathe2017-08-12T00:00:00Z

    Small Stone House (Centenary) Typical of the Center of Portugal, in an area of a Hectare 5, with swimming pool, Olive trees, figs Oak A room in mezzanine opened on the room to be lived, Shower Spacious and Wc down, kitchen equipped with Wood stove and all the comfort Pleasant terrace overlooking the estate with orange trees, lemon trees and various fruit trees Access to the swimming pool with deck chairs available Private Parking A ground of shaded balls (balls provided)
    This cozy little house, The Bedroom consists of a bed of 160x200, for the 3rd sleeping a sofa 110x250, mattress very comfortable A supplementary heating for the winter, a ventilator The living room is bright with a small wood stove Godin for winter and house fresh summer Kitchen equipped with an oven, plate, fridge freezer, Small Electric Appliances, and all necessary utensils The terrace is spacious and very pleasant
    Small village typical of 7 houses, very quiet with stone path (in Calçada Cabaços is 5km away where you will find a bakery, bar, restaurant, post office, petrol station, bookshop, a printing shop and a small supermarket. On Thursdays a hauling truck of fruits and vegetables On Saturday a traveling fishmonger passes in the village honking to warn of his passage towards 12H30 and13H Supermarket in Alvaiazere (5km) or Tomar 27km You can also go hiking on footpaths
  • Large paradise garden, perfectly maintained (immaculate lawn, pear trees, apple trees, lemon trees, orange trees, plum trees ... vegetable garden!) Without being artificial, with many different corners (in the shade of the olive tree or under the small grove of oaks or in the small place Zen or under the porch near the swimming pool or on the beautiful terrace), small house very comfortable and super well equipped for cooking, and finally beautiful swimming pool of 18 meters! In short we came in "retirement" mode (in search of solitude and silence) 12 days with our 8 month old daughter (room in mezzanine solid and pleasant but potentially dangerous for young children, our do not frolic yet so was perfect!) and we were filled: perfect days of silence, swimming, reading, tanning and ... bird watching. In addition, warm welcome from Manuela and her daughter, and also a friendly visit from Ana always available if needed and quick to give you good advice on the area or local products. If you add the opportunity to get a massage on site (!), And Tomar, Coimbra or Alcobaça not far, you have an ideal holiday, and a tight heart when you leave.

  • Wow! Wow! Wow! Ana and Thierry's place is superb. We had the most marvellous time there. The house is very stylish, extremely comfortable and homely; the grounds are fabulous; the swimming pool is beautiful and a pool for real swimming, but the best part is the welcome. Ana and Thierry know how to be discreet (so you can relax alone), but they're also incredibly welcoming if you want to chat, share a meal or learn how to play boules like a true French person (in a Portuguese setting, of course!). The house is perfectly clean and very well-equipped. The bed is really comfortable, the shower great and the kitchen a joy to cook in. Nearby, there are so many places to visit, but you might find it hard to leave the gorgeous garden and terrace. We had a brilliant holiday here and would love to go back. Highly recommended!

    Rebecca2017-09-11T00:00:00Z

We were very well received by Ana and Thierry. We had a great time enjoying all the space of the property (fruits and vegetables at will) surrounding the house: ideal for rest and relaxation in absolute calm.

We recommend you hire a car, to get around and do weekly shopping also to visit the amazing country villages in the area.
  • The location of the house was surprisingly easy to find, following the directions that they provided. We arrived a little late and Tony and Ross were very nice about it. They also gave us a complementary bottle of wine. We enjoyed the peacefulness of the place, that it had a/c in every room. The shower head was a success. Also, the house was beautifully decorated, it had interesting books in every room and games like Monopoly, a deck of cards, Scrabble, etc.

  • Bernadette and Pedro are fantastic hosts and we enjoyed 8 weeks at Casa Franco from mid-December to mid-February. The accommodation had everything that we needed. Bella, our dog, really enjoyed it too and she had her own garden to enjoy as well as being able to curl up in her basket in front of the wood burning stove. It was also good to have regular visits from the lovely Ruby and Max. Bernadette and Pedro were always available for help and advice, including information about all of the local attractions including the wonderful beaches at Nazare and Sao Martinho do Porto. We also enjoyed Dornes, Foz de Alge, Coimbra, Tomar, Penela and the many other beautiful places. The Louçainha outdoor pool is fantastic too (not in January though!). We also enjoyed time in Alvaiázere itself. Most days we walked into Alvaiázere and spent time at the Benfica cafe then calling at one of the Supermarkets for the days supplies, then walking back. It’s a very friendly place and that was the case wherever we went. Amigos Bar just over the road from Casa Franco is a good place to call at too. It’s good food and if you go there say ‘Hi’ to the lovely Jenny and say that Mark & Ann told you to come! Book with complete confidence and have a great stay as we did. We may well be back. Enjoy running around up there Max 🐕.

  • What a lovely place- in a fantastically peaceful location, yet within close proximity to the town of Alvaiázere with all its amenities. Pedro and Bernadette are so friendly and welcoming, and the cottage is really nicely finished, with a nice balcony and access to the pool area. We recommend Amigos bar down the road for great food and service too! Thanks again for a great stay.

    Mickael2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place to stay and what lovely hosts! We've just returned from a week at Casa Franco in central Portugal. The house is in a really peaceful spot but only a few minutes drive from the local town of Alvaiazere. It's not a big place but you can find supermarkets open seven days a week for supplies as well as facilities you'd expect to find in a much bigger town such as a sports centre and swimming pool. There's a super place called Duchy's too with fabulous high quality burgers at really good prices. The house itself has everything you'll need for a comfortable, relaxing holiday. It's design means that even on days when it's 30+ degrees, the bedrooms remain cool. Very welcoming after a hard day by the pool! The hosts who live next door are so kind and friendly but the house and pool area still feel private when you stay there. There were lots of practical things supplied like toilet paper, washing up liquid and fresh sponges as well as an abundance of pool towels to use. There was also a welcome pack of things to drink in the fridge. Really thoughtful. As dog owners, it was great to meet Max and Ruby too who are both adorable (but kept away from guests if you prefer) There are lots of interesting places to visit nearby including Coimbra to the north and Tomar with it's Monastery to the south. We had an excellent lunch of freshly caught fish from the river at Dornes (Cafe Restaurante Fonte de Cima, approximately 25 minutes away) followed by a swim in the river our lunch came from. Excellent. All in all a great holiday experience with lovely hosts. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Casa Franco to anyone thinking of visiting the area.

    Mark2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Pedro and Bernadette are great hosts, so welcoming and hospitable. A lovely couple. They are always on hand to help with any queries and offer great tips for things to do in the area. Communication was excellent. Their house is just perfect. It was spotless, and had everything we needed for our extended stay of 5 weeks. It was like a home away from home. Nicely situated for a relaxing break away, and also within an easy drive of the beautiful town of Tomar, with its excellent tourist sites. Thanks again guys. We will have fond memories of our time at your place. Highly recommended!

    Tom2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a little country getaway then this is the place for it! The hosts are very welcoming and friendly, the quest house is super cozy, rustic and with a lovely view. They have two lovely dogs, who are extremely joyful and adorable. We had a rental car to visit nearby places and restaurants, so consider that a must to get around easily. The most unfortunate thing was that we could only stay there two nights and not more because we had a roadtrip already planned.

    Risto2019-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place. Everything you need is supplied, we cooked dinners nearly every night and had all we needed. Log burning stove made the place like toast on cold nights - and smelt great too. A really good balance of private and communication, Pedro & Bernie were there when we needed things or information but gave us all the privacy we needed. Our dog loved the back garden to explore. View form the balcony is a great way to start the day - and the stars from the back yard a great way to finish the day. The garden was just beginning to bloom as we left (in mid-March) - felt sad we didn't get to see it the spring and summer colours that are coming through. Temperatures in February and March were warm. Bernie and Pedro were excellent hosts - and the dogs Max and Ruby were welcoming too - the good separation means the dogs are there if you want to meet and play with them, but kept away if you don't. And just down the road is Amigo's Bar - English run, great tapas and always friendly conversation from the owners and patrons. (And English football and British rugby on the TV).

    Ivor2019-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • We really loved it here. Close to the town which has everything, but a really quiet location. Beautiful calming olive groves all around, really friendly neighbourhood. The fire was lit for our arrival and Pedro picked us up from the bus stop late at night.

    Mansion of the late nineteenth century that has on the ground floor 5 bedroom two and a dormitory with 4 beds, all of them served by 4 bathrooms. Dining room for meals located next to the kitchen and two living rooms to.
    Quiet and perfect for holidays. House in perfect harmony with nature. Tomar and the Castelo de Bode dam quite close. Unique conditions for practicing water sports like wakeboarding.
  • This is an absolutely amazing place. Pictures do not do it justice. It is magnificent and steeped in history. It’s like staying in a museum (in a good way!) The place is huge with many places to relax and enjoy your holidays. The bathrooms are modern and everything was in perfect working order. We also catered a meal, which I highly recommend. The on-site villa hostess, Luisa, is very accommodating and kind. She keeps this place spotless which is quite a feat considering the size. She is truly wonderful. We were very sad to leave! We only wish there was a book describing the history of the place and the beautiful artifacts.

  • We spent in Manuel’s place unforgettable week in September. This house is absolutely special. It’s huge and full of character and amazing details. Makes you feel like you live in a fairy tale palace. Luisa, a house keeper, is helpful and friendly. She keeps the house clean and shiny. Nice touch is that you get fresh bread every morning. You can also order breakfast , if you wish. Rooms are cleaned every day and beds are made every day as well. The house has several outdoor patios and a beautiful pool. We were staying with a large group of people and had more than enough space. Location is good but you need a car to get around and see the country. This place is amazing and I would definitely come there again.

  • Quinta do Tojal surpassed all our expectations. We were a group of 10 people and the house accommodated us all comfortably and beautifully. This historical house offers great facilities such as a large swimming pool, barbecue grill, pizza oven. A wide choice of dining spaces, large and comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms, all very well cleaned and maintained. Luiza, the house keeper is a fantastic help giving local tips (her cousins’ homemade olive oil is delicious - definitely worth ordering some from her!) and brings lovely bread every morning. We also loved the wine from quinta da alorna given to us by Manuel at arrival. There is a wide choice of activities in the area around the house - visits to river beaches, lakes, historical xisto villages, foraging walks.

  • This is a very special house, the rooms were amazing. The pool and outdoor spaces were gorgeous. Louisa the on-site manager was so helpful and kind and her dog Sushi was adored by my children. We loved our stay.

    Abby2019-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • This place is very special. Actualy fabulous! The house is very old, has it's own spirit - have to become friends with it, but eventualy you can feel good vibes there. The athmosphere is enriched by Luisa - hostess of the place, who is always ready to help. We were also suprised that despite the age of the house all bathrooms were fully refurbished and very clean. Thank you for hospitality. Thank you for sharing the possibility to enjoy such a beauty. I strongly recommend it to all my friends.

    Kristina2019-07-01T00:00:00Z

    Guest Caroline V said: ‘We highly recommend this location!!!’ John's very spacious and pleasant house is located between Lisbon and Porto ... we had a great stay: the pool and the terraces with breathtaking and unobstructed views of the hills ... we appreciated the tranquility and calm. There is everything you need in Alvaiázere and plenty of activities nearby: beaches by the river, caves, hiking ... and that's without counting on the kindness and accuracy of the information given by the owners.
    The villa’s kidney shaped swimming pool measures 10.5m x 5.25m is completely private and secluded. Also completely secluded is the courtyard with outside steps up to the large terrace which gets all day sunshine. The large kitchen with breakfast bar has a rustic dining table which seats 8 and has 2 comfortable settees. The sitting room including 3 sofas, one of which is a sofa bed, has access to the rear garden and to the courtyard. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom, king sized bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers etc and sliding doors to a small balcony. In addition there are 2 good sized twin bedrooms with fitted wardrobes. All 3 bedrooms have window fly/mosquito screens. There is a family bathroom adjacent to the twin bedrooms. There’s a downstairs WC. There’s private parking for several cars. It’s just a 5 minute drive to Cabaços with cafés, bakery, restaurant, mini-market, butcher, fishmonger, pharmacy, bank/cash point and other local stores. Monday is market day.
    The centre of Portugal has some of the country’s finest beaches, many of which are well known for surfing. Central Portugal has major monuments, wonderful scenery and ancient remains. The Romans described the centre of Portugal as the Garden of Eden as much of Central Portugal is covered with lush, green and beautiful mountain scenery. The blue flag beach Praia do Osso da Baleia with free parking is 1 hour’s drive. Casa de Sandoeira - Things to Do: Our self catering villa is situated near Alvaiázere in Central Portugal, close to unspoiled countryside with river beaches suitable for swimming and historic world heritage sites. It is 20 minutes from the beautiful city Tomar and within 30 minutes of Portugal’s stunning third largest city - the University city of Coimbra. Lisbon and Porto are just a train ride away or 1.5 hours by car.
 Horse riding, hiking, kayaking, river trips and spa days are all available locally. Sandoeira The locale around Sandoeira is unspoiled, natural and often stunning - surrounded by mountains, rivers, gorges, forests, picturesque villages and miles of sandy beaches. The nearest large town is Alvaiázere which has everything a small town should have: restaurants, pharmacy, doctors, a football team, shops and bars. It has a market once a week, where you can buy anything from furniture to rabbits or a pair of jeans! Tomar Tomar is dominated by the Convento de Cristo which sits high above the city and is crossed by the Nabão River. Its chequered history tells stories about its wealth, trading, religion and atrocities. The Convent is an incredible 'must do’ place to visit. River Beaches Portugal’s river beaches are gems of tranquility tucked into gorges, along rivers or created in picturesque towns and villages. The clear river waters in this part of Portugal are often warmer than the sea and with no hidden undercurrents, making river beaches perfect for beautiful summer days. Highly recommended is the Fragas de São Simão river beach. A twisty drive through the forest, takes you past a spectacular view point, down to where the River Alge has been dammed to help provide pools of varying depths. It is a beautiful natural setting, with dappled shade and swimming in the crystal clear water.

  • Great location in middle of village, friendly place, very much in Portugal rather than tourist spot. We were there for festival so lively. Host family are fantastic, friendly and helpful. House has lovely family home feel to it. Pool very much enjoyed. Garden enormous and full of fruit trees, great terrace for end of day relaxing .

    Annabelle2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great house, with all the utensils, a beautiful garden, a large pool, convenient location, many interesting things nearby, 2 supermarkets in front of the house, I highly recommend

    Nadya2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • We loved it! The garden is immense, our dog enjoyed a lot. The house inside is super wide, you have everything you need to cook, and relax in the living room, the TV has internet and a USB port. It has a fireplace, brazier, electric stove and a butane stove, that is, you do not go cold. The WiFi works perfectly. The hosts are lovely, it is a very welcoming family, as we arrived we received a warm welcome, and they were on us the necessary time to give us directions on how to get to the places we wanted. As for the location of the house, it is opposite two supermarkets and a cafeteria, and by car you are next to many points of interest. We were super comfortable in that house, when we arrived we had cold water in the fridge, they are small details that make it an experience of 10. If we return to Portugal we will repeat. 100% recommendable.

We are a mile away from the Castelo do Bode lake on the Rio Zézere and only 7 minutes from Cabaços (for banks, chemist, cafe's etc). Motorways and main access roads are minutes away.

  • Our family enjoyed a wonderful, unforgettable vacation with David and Wendy. The view from the house is spectacular, the atmosphere peaceful and relaxing. David and Wendy are the most welcoming and generous hosts and went out of their way to make our stay the best possible. Our two girls loved feeding the chickens, picking fresh oranges and berries, playing with Yogi the dog and Coco the cat, holding the baby rabbits – just to mention some of the highlights. Located centrally in a quiet part of Portugal, this place is ideally located for a family vacation that includes both relaxing by the pool, exploring the beautiful countryside, and cultural sightseeing, for example in Tomar and Coimbra. Lisbon is also easily accessible. We heartily recommend staying with David and Wendy!

    Ulla2018-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • David and Wendy's guest house was well appointed and located steps from a beautiful infinity pool that our children used every day. In addition to the comfortable space, our children were thrilled to feed chickens every morning, watch baby bunnies grow and play in the fields surrounding the guest house. David and Wendy went out of their way to make sure that our family had everything that we needed and we enjoyed two beautiful meals with David and Wendy's family and neighbours. If you are looking for a relaxing space that is well suited to families, we highly recommend a trip to Maçãs de Dona Maria. You won't be disappointed!

  • Staying chez Dave and Wendy can be summed up in two words: lovely and relaxing! The guest house is spacious and equipped with all a visitor might need (inc. a big proper kitchen!). The views are stunning, the garden has plenty of fruit, veg and berries for all - and the pool, well, it is even better than in the pictures. And you could not ask for better or more welcoming hosts, with years of local knowledge to share! It's a great place to enjoy Portuguese countryside, with plenty of beauty just around the corner or max. 1h drive away. Warmly recommended!
