A house in a rural setting, ideal for three couples

  • 3 of 5

This house is situated in a rural town in the hills below Miranda do Corvo. It has 3 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms. This makes it ideal for 3 couples to stay there. You are close to Coimbra, but in 45 min you can also be at the beach. You can also hike through the forests. Unfortunately it had no wifi, but if you go to the Cafe Avenida in the centre of Miranda do Corvo you can have a cheap drink in a very relaxed environment and check your mail with the free wifi.

From the Owner

On retiring I wanted a renovation project, after viewing several houses in different countries I found this house in a Sunday paper advert, and knew it was exactly what I wanted. There were four walls and a roof, enabling us to create a living space to our own specification .

From the Owner

The house is rural but not isolated, the addition of a turret containing the stair way creating a charming unusual feature. The walled garden with solid gate makes the property safe, enabling security if young children are in the party. West-facing terrace allows enjoyment of the spectacular views and watching the sun set below the horizon. The village setting gives the feeling of being part of rural life...bread sold daily from a van, villagers working in the fields, elderly gents stopping for a chat, all form the rich tapestry of life in the mountain.
