Traditional, renovated farmhouse, within walking distance of Pedrogaõ Grande village, in the green heart of Central Portugal. The house is light and airy with high ceilings and spacious rooms, cool in the hot summer days. Set in a beautiful forest landscape with views of the Cabril Lake and surrounding hills. It has pretty, secluded gardens and a terrace, shaded by orange and lemon trees. Well situated for outdoor activities with ample parking and secure space for canoes and bikes.
“A beautiful place in the sweet village Pedrogao Grande! A nice garden where you can relax under lemontrees with a beautiful sunrise and sundawn athmosphere, 25 minutes walk away through a nice forest from the cabril-lake, great breakfast with delicious homemade marmelade and fresh fruits and Briony and Bob - two great and enjoyable hosts who were always there to give us good hints on possible activities, respected privacy a lot and even gave us a ride from time to time! Thanks a lot for the nice holiday at your place! (as a hint for people who would like to cook outside with a camping cooker: there is a public barbeque-area right at the lake - but watch out during summer-time as there is a high risk for forest fires, only use well protected stoves)”
This apartment is about 15 minutes by car to the river which is wonderful to bathe in and also to try on the paddle board or canoe available for rent in Dornes. A little further down the river there is also a wakeboard for rent .Light and newly renovated apartment with its own entrance and parking right outside.Great comfortable double bed (1.80) with mattress pad for extra comfort. 50 m to an excellent restaurant, many cafes within walking distance also a gym and post office.
“The house feels like it's new, with everything as great as it can be! The building is completely renovated, with all the amenities you would need for a short or a long stay, including heat and air conditioning, a fully-equipped kitchen, access to a washing machine, and a bathroom with hot and cold water. You also have access to the saltwater pool. The house is located in a charming village, in a very quiet location away from the road and traffic. I felt very much at home staying here! Tord and Elisabeth are the most wonderful hosts ever! They're happy to provide you with fresh lemons, oranges, and olive oil from their land ,and are there to exchange travel stories and answer your questions to make sure your stay exceeds your expectations! There are many hikes you can do around the area, and a river is a few minutes' drives if you care for a swim in fresh water. Overall, a very nice place to relax and reconnect with nature. I will definitely be back!”
The property is a studio house adjacent to our family house. Our studio house is cosy and would suit a couple or small family who like to hike, cycle or just relax. Canoeing is possible a few kilometers away. The apartment is next to our own home but with complete privacy. Access is separate from main house.
“Very good home and beautiful little house in the countryside of a beautiful region. Olga and her husband are wonderful people with whom it is perfectly easy to communicate (English / French). I highly recommend a visit to their home!”
