Brilliant villa

  • 5 of 5

We'd love to keep this villa a secret so that we could visit whenever we like! The accommodation is everything you could possibly wish for; immaculate with all the comforts of home. Steve and Chris, the owners, couldn't be more friendly. On hand, if needed, with helpful, local knowledge but never intrusive. Stunning views, an amazing pool, a perfect base to explore the 'real' Portugal. We will certainly return.

Fabulous family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully clean, well maintained and spacious villa. Wonderful warm welcome from Christine and Stephen, who were on hand for advice but never intrusive. We stayed for two weeks with our daughters (18 and 15) and made good use of the large private pool, as well as enjoying plenty of local sightseeing. Within easy drive of Coimbra and Tomar and we also took day trips out further afield to the coast. Would highly recommend and would definitely consider revisiting in the future.

We loved our time here

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was based around meeting friends from the US in Lisbon, then escaping to somewhere peaceful for some much needed catching up.

Casa da Floresta was perfect. Christine & Stephen were very welcoming, the apartment very spacious, really clean and perfect for the 4 of us wanting to spend some r&r time together.

It was a beautiful location, exploring both on foot and by car was exciting down all the little roads and through the tiny villages.

A great few days. Thank you.

Stunning Villa

  • 5 of 5

This lovely accommodation is spacious and very well equipped and maintained. It is exactly as described in the listing, with a private terrace and access to an excellent pool and sunbathing area. Chris and Steve were very welcoming and always willing to provide information regarding local attractions and places of interest. We can certainly recommend this property for a holiday in a rural area.

casa da floresta

  • 5 of 5

A spotlessly clean and tidy villa overlooking the valley worthy of a five star review.

The rooms are spacious and well equipped including freeview tv.

The perfect getaway for peace and quiet.

Christine and Steve welcomed us with a surprise welcome pack and were on hand for any local knowledge we required.

Nice places to visit locally and a fantastic large pool all to yourself.

We would highly recommend this villa for a great relaxing holiday.

Many thanks to Christine and Steve.
