Attractively Restored Country Cottage With Pool And Garden - Casa de Muro (The Wall House)



Updated: 02-Dec-2016
Cottages in Santarem, Ribatejo, Central Portugal - Idyllic Countryside Base For Touring Central Portugal

These are a pair of rural cottages that have recently been restored by their Anglo-Portuguese owners in this delightful country property about 50 minutes north of Lisbon airport on the main A1 motorway. The cottages are both tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished with plenty of space. There is also an ample garden with fruit (when in season) from the trees for the guests to enjoy. There is a good size swimming pool and large sun deck together with a Barbecue area and tennis table and other games in a traditional open sided barn. There are several bicycles and other equipment necessary to complement an excellent holiday. The cottages are on the edge of a small hamlet with two cafés and a small general store all within 100 metres of the property. Fresh bread can be delivered daily to the house by the local baker, and the fresh fish supplier also calls once a week to the village. Close by (10km.) on the banks of the Tagus river is the famous castle town of Santarém. The cottage is fully licensed with the local Council under the Alojamento Local scheme which ensures compliance with safety standards.

Thanks for a wonderful holiday. The garden and the pool kept two young children very happy for two weeks. We met friends in xxx for a day but were glad to get back to the peace of Sinterra. S. loved the figs!

Great for relaxation and as base for exploration

  • 5 of 5

We choose the place based on description and pictures on OwnersDirect. Nearly everything was better in reality.

We especially loved the garden with the fantastic combination of places to enjoy sun, places with shadow below e.g. palms, places with shelter and places with nice breeze. A favorite spot was our terrace with the nice shadow below carob-like vegetation and fantastic views.

We can really recommend this property and would love to stay there again.

This is an excellent area for touring. It is strategically located for access to the West coast beaches and resorts yet is close to the historical monuments and beautiful countryside of central Portugal. Santarém is a particularly beautiful thriving market town with a good supply of historical monuments, cultural activities, shopping centre, cinemas, swimming pool and waterslide park etc. The twice monthly market is also well worth visiting. Close by are several important sites to visit.


Lisbon airport is about 80km. away with very simple motorway access. The car journey shouldn’t take more than about 50 minutes.

A rental car is recommended unless you intend to stay put in the village.


Santarém is about 10km. away, and the centre of Lisbon 100km.

They are reasonably cool in the summer due to their traditional thick walls, and are heated when necessary by permanent wood burning stoves located in the living rooms. Electric oil filled heaters are also provided. Internet access is available on request - we can provide you with a pre-paid mobile broadband USB.The location is excellent for touring, for walking, bird watching and other rural pursuits. Bicycles, games and other equipment are available to help add to the pleasure of this property for family holidays. The properties are in the "real" countryside and there maybe tractors ploughing neighbouring fields and other countryside situations which we can't control. Outside: The large south facing lawn is the focal point of the garden which leads on to the small olive orchard. The garden has several trees and guests are welcome to eat the fruit when in season. The swimming pool (10m x 5m) which is shared by the two cottages is adjacent to the lawn and has its own spacious sun deck area, which is furnished with lounging chairs and small tables, together with sun shade. There is also ample additional garden furniture for sitting and eating outdoors. The Barbecue area with its own large table and bench seats is in a traditional open sided barn which also houses the tennis table, darts board etc.
