About the property

Villa in Pousadouros, Nr. Arganil, Silver Coast, Portugal - Stunning Private Peaceful Location, Woodland Setting, Miles Of Forest Tracks, Close To River Beach

Quinta do Acor is a stunning luxury villa in a very tranquil, private location on the edge of the Serra do Acor mountains within the Beira region of central Portugal but still part of the silver coast. It's an unspoilt rural area of Portugal.The house is split into two appartments that are linked and can be used as one house but afford you a lot of privacy if needed. there is a modern kitchen with everything you could need and a really good portuguese coffee maker ! In the lounge there is a large smart tv with satellite and internet tv and a playstation so most tv is possible . There are books games and dvds . The bathrooms have different designs and are luxurious with large showers and baths and one with a large double Jacuzzi bath .The beds are all kingsize but large singles are available. The mattresses are handmade and are very very comfortable ,We use top quality cotton linen and towels.There are walk in wardrobes with plenty of space with mirrors and lights . In one of the apartments is a very large living room with a small kitchen run that Is now the fourth bedroom . The whole of Quinta Do Acor is on the internet and you can access it in most places around the villa .

Upstairs is another large four bedroom apartment but this is not going to be used until next year . The house is situated on the edge of a cork and pine forest and walking distance to the river Alva river beach which is sanded each year and well looked after and a great place to swim or to jump in by rope or diving board. Or just walk to the other side of the river across a wide shallow walkway come waterfall where you will find a very nice local food restaurant and bar. Or stay at the beach bar and have a snack and a drink. There is a small cafe in our village that is a ten minute walk by road or through the woods which can organise fresh bread if needed and they love to chat if you want to practice some Portuguese.

There are other cafes and eating places within walking distance via road or track and all other amenities are all in easy reach by car in three nearby towns,Arganil ,Coja and Tabua .All have hotels , banks, supermarkets of all types and plenty of shopping with lots of places to eat and drink .The closest Arganil has a small hospital and private clinic and doctors and dentists and vets.

We are forty minutes from the historic old capital of Portugal. Coimbra is one of the worlds oldest university cities with a preserved medieval old town and one of the largest excavated Roman settlements called Conimbriga is nearby.

Coimbra sits either side of the wide river Mondego and has the historical and modern woven together .There are good shops hidden away down alleys and large stores and markets all around with two large modern shopping centres with multiscreen cinemas .

Not far from Coimbra you hit the Atlantic coast and the fantastic sand dune protected wide beaches.

Back at the Villa you arrive from Porto in under an hour and a half and enter down a wooded track through gates into a space of total enchanting privacy .

The villa has a large parking area where there is one of four covered water wells . A fish man visits here wednesday and thursday lunchtime and toots his horn to see if you would like fresh fish and if you don't appear he leaves ,this area is cut off from the house by large hedging and walls .

On entering you can walk all aroung the villa on the cobbled and tiled walkways passing the organic garden with veg ,fruit and herbs and round the back of the indoor kitchen where theres a outside garden seating area that gets the morning sun and is a great place for breakfast .

From here you are looking down the garden and over your hectare of land and forest and up to the mountains ,these are beautifully clear most of the year with endless sunny blue skies but in January and Febuary there may be snow up there . The Serra Da Estrela mountains ( mountains of the stars ) are the only mountains in Portugal that you can go skiing and a great place to visit at all times.

Going around the path you go between two gardens. One is below the pool area and the planted banks up to it and the other is a shaded garden area and beds at the back of the villa.

Here you can go up some wide granite steps to the very large upstairs sun terrace which over looks the pool ,gardens and the other courtyards ,it's totally private and also a good spot to keep an eye on the children by the pool or down the land. Its a perfect sun trap but with shade provided and it gets the last of the evening sun so its perfect for an evening cocktail or a peaceful spot for early morning yoga or evening star gazing . Below is a covered balcony area leading from the house, a lovely spot to relax with a private shady garden and large cherry tree with a hammock and views to the mountains.

Across the path from here steps lead up to the large sun patio around the pool with sun beds and umbrellas,chairs and tables. The large 12 by 5 metre pool is on a raised area with beautiful views with flower and shrub planted banks on three sides which are colourful and fragrant . The banks unexpectedly and naturally help to keep the pool warm with the sun.

There are two sets of steps leading up to the pool from different ends and there is plenty of space around the whole pool for sunbeds and umbrellas to be moved with the sun theres also a small grassy shaded private area to just relax on and dig your toes into! The pool is a gently sloping 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 ft deep and looking out from the deep end its like an infinity pool with a fantastic view of the mountains , gardens and forests. The whole area is very private and not overlooked so you can sunbathe freely. At the back of the pool is the bar, wet room and toilet and to the front of this are large cork oaks, shrubs and planted beds amongst and under these are various shaded seating areas which are great places for reading or just relaxing . The trees , gardens and a large well and water feature here are all lit at night and make a fantastic area in front of your own private bar .This is well decorated and beautifully lit with a newly covered pool table. There is an amplifier for iPods etc and good speakers, air con, internet, ice machine and a wood burner just for the winter holidays or for the party evenings if you can stand the heat ! Out the side door of the bar is another courtyard with a large deep beautiful brick well safely covered by a lit metal structure so you can peer down into the depths. In this courtyard there is the washroom with a large modern washing machine and a tumble dryer with ironing board ,spare linen and towels plus a large freezer if you're having a party and want plenty of ice and cold drinks or ice creams.

Opposite this is the pool pump house . A pool man comes each week to check on the copper diode system that keeps the pool free of chemicals .

The villa is free from public water and is fed from a 110 metre deep borehole within the courtyard that can produce 1500 litres an hour at most times.

Out of this courtyard and down some wide steps you enter a very large portuguese cobbled courtyard that has the entrances to other parts of the villa . There are solar lights here and around the whole property that look magic at night .there is another large cobble covered well here with a water feature and beautiful raised gardens surrounding it .

In this courtyard is the outside kitchen , dining area with marble work surfaces , sink ,dishwasher ,fridge and a conventional double ovened six burner multifuel range but also a fantastic handmade wood fired bread oven .This is the place that our guests say they spend most of their time. It has a large communal table and chairs, and a great atmosphere . built onto this is a tiled bbq area underneath a delicious eating grape vine a rose and a kiwi covered pergola . This whole area is perfect for preparing shady lunches or candlelit evening meals. There are many different seating areas in sun and shade alike at Quinta Do Acor with plenty of space for everyone to relax and enjoy. The property has plenty of charm and space. A lot of clients say they did'nt venture far as they had everything they wanted but it's also great for explorers and perfect for nature lovers, with miles of country side for walking, mountain biking, and activities such as riding, kayaking, and abseiling, or as a base to explore the markets, historic towns and villages or to soak up the Portuguese culture.

About Clive

I live between England and Portugal, but wherever I am but heart is always in Portugal. I have enjoyed creating a unique space for people to enjoy, and although the property has only been let for a short amount of time I have enjoyed lots of positive feedback from my guests.

Clive purchased this villa in 2004

Why Clive chose Coimbra Region

We bought in this location because of the diversity of the countryside, in the foothills of the mountains but with wide clean rivers and river beaches and an hour from the Atlantic Coast it enjoys the best of all worlds. This is unspoilt Portugal, with a traditional laid back way of life, no traffic, a low cost of living and total freedom.

What makes this villa unique

The Quinta is unique in that it it enjoys a priviliged position in nature, set in an acre of its own land and surrounded by a cork and pine forest, with no neighbouring properties, but within a 5 minute walk from the local village of Pousadouros and a 10 minute drive from Arganil town. The emphasis is on quality, detail and space. There's plenty to keep everyone happy, floating on the freshwater pool while enjoying the mountain views, lying in a hammock with a book, sunbathing on the terrace, rocking the bar with a beer and a game of pool, or trying your hands at pizza making. There are plenty of outdoor activities such hiking mountain biking or kayaking or you could use the place as a base from which to explore the busy market towns, historical sights and cities, wine and food of the region.

Guestbook comments from the manager

16 Sept 2014 marknmand

Quinta do Acor is in an undiscovered, beautiful part of Portugal. The undulating tree filled landscape invites you to slow down and relax. There isn't a massive amount to 'do' and, if that suits you, as it did us, you'll be happy here. Having said that we seemed to 'do' plenty. Nearby Roman ruins at Conimbriga were magnificent; Coimbra was good too, wandering around the steep narrow alleyways around the historic University was the best bit. The river beaches steal the show though; there's one just down the road which is small but good. Further afield Avo and Gois were great, the former for jumping off small cliffs. Other attractions include the nearby small town of Coja where happiness can be found relaxing under a tree covered terrace sipping a delicious Portuguese coffee before popping into the boutique bakery for a delicious pastel de nata ( custard tart to die for!)

The Quinta is superb. It's a mixture of luxury and fun. The luxury is to be found in the 3 ensuite bedrooms, beautiful pool, outdoor dining kitchen and a whole bunch of other stuff. The fun in the fabulous pool room which has a pool table, bar, amp, speakers and even red fairy lights! Tacky it isn't quirky and fun it definitely is.

Phillipa is the perfect 'host'. She lives in a cottage which is screened away at the side of the property and is there should you need anything but ultra discreet and really friendly. She made us feel so welcome and made sure we were happy and had everything we needed.

The immediate surroundings of the house are fantastic. There are MILES of mountain bike and running tracks straight out the gate through beautifully scented pine and eucalyptus forests. The roof terrace is wonderful for star gazing - the night skies are amazing here. We saw THE brightest shooting star flash as it entered the atmosphere!

An altogether top place, we are delighted to recommend it to anyone who appreciates the outdoors and the simple life but from the comfort of a kingsize bed and a poolside sun lounger!

Out of this world

  • 5 of 5

Six of us (and our dog) had a wonderful two weeks here. It proved to be everything that the other reviewers of the property found so enjoyable. Nothing was too much trouble for Clive and his staff. The only downside was having to leave this magical place at the end of our holiday.

Fantastic Two weeks in Arganil

  • 5 of 5

This is an incredible property that is under sold in regard to the pictures and description given. The location is incredible, the pool and house fantastic. Each room is beautifully presented and of the highest quality. The garden is well tended, as is the pool, and the house is presented clean and tidy. A huge thank you to Clive who looked after us during our stay in addition to Lucy and Caroline who kept the garden well watered and looking its best. I would very much recommend this holiday villa. Many thanks John

Omg what a gem of a place - Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a place. Complete privacy with a fabulous poolside games room/bar. Loved every minute of the 10 days we stayed for a friends 40th birthday (10 of us). Plenty of room to be alone when needed with beautiful gardens and a fantastic outdoor kitchen too. Pool was divine and accommodation lovely. The perfect getaway from real life!

Silver coast and Central Portugals hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a short break and really needed privacy and quiet and definitely no neighbours near as we have two boisterous puppies in training and a Dad who is recuperating from an operation. We got all of this in spades at Quinta Do Acor ,what a beautiful hidden place . We didn't expect the weather to be so good but we had some good sunny days when we left the teenagers and Dad playing pool and watching films in the bar with the woodburner blasting away while we took the chance to go and see the snow up in the mountains and visit a spa and the city of Viseu .

Most days though we stayed at the villa and cooked and relaxed ,there is so much room around the grounds and out on the woodland paths that the dogs and I got plenty of walking and found some great tracks down to the river and a nice cafe for a coffee and a brandy ! .

Thankyou for having us there and thankyou to Kaz and Emily the gardeners come organisers etc for welcoming us and seeing us off and for giving us good advice on where to visit and showing us how to cook with the bread oven , which we mastered in the end ! We shall definitely be coming back later in the year .

Owner's Response: Thank you Jo I am glad everything went so well . I know you were worried about the kids at this time of year but with the snow and skiing available up on the mountain this time of year and the tracks and rivers around the villa to explore there is plenty to do if you can get them off the pool table and out of the bar ! It's also a great place for dogs and well done for getting to the cafe on the tracks . It's a nice place to have a good coffee and chat as a halfway rest point on a walk ! We look forward to seeing you again later in the year . Clive

Stunning, luxurious villa with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Quinta do Acor is a truly stunning, luxurious place and we had a fantastic holiday there. It definitely has the “wow” factor! We were welcomed and showed around by the lovely Lucy who was extremely helpful and friendly. The house and grounds are spacious and absolutely beautiful with a private swimming pool with mountain views and lots of secluded places to sit, relax and take in the breathtaking scenery. It is an idyllic place in which to unwind and enjoy nature whilst also taking advantage of the comforts of modern life such as the internet, English TV, films etc.

We found it spotlessly clean, comfortable and extremely well equipped. Everything has been so well thought out with great attention to detail. I enjoy cooking so having a choice of kitchens was brilliant. There is the spacious, well equipped kitchen in the main house plus the outside kitchen which has a pizza oven plus its own fridge, BBQ and dishwasher. It was also lovely to be able to pick organic tomatoes, peppers and herbs straight from the garden.

We loved sitting in the garden in the morning with a cup of tea, watching and listening to a variety of birds who also seem to love the quinta and as we had a hot, sunny week, we enjoyed swimming in the pool whilst taking in the beautiful mountain views.

The solar lights give the quinta a magical feel at night and having our own private bar was an absolute treat! We spent several evenings enjoying a drink, listening to music and playing pool then off to bed for a sound nights sleep in the comfy beds.

As Quinta Do Acor is so tranquil and comfortable, it would have been very easy not to have ventured outside of the grounds at all during our holiday. However, we wanted to explore the area and also put the Portuguese that we are learning into practice. Quinta Do Acor is perfectly situated, being private and secluded yet less than a 10 minute stroll into the pretty village of Pousadouros where there is a welcoming little cafe serving coffee, tea, beer and wine. Arganil with its shops, banks and supermarkets is an easy 10 minute drive and we also really enjoyed a day out at the beautiful Secarias river beach which is about a 15 minute walk or a couple of minutes in the car.

We would definitely recommend Quinta Do Acor and we look forward to staying again. Whether you are a couple, small family or bigger group, Quinta Do Acor is an amazing place for a holiday!

Owner's Response: Thank you Tanya for the review I am so glad that you had such a nice time outside our normal season.So many people don't realise that we sill have great weather in September and how cheap it is up here in central Portugal. I am pleased you enjoyed our gardens and that you found the little cafe just up the road as its a bit hidden away, they can get fresh bread for you if you want to order it for each day of your stay.which I'm sure they told you,Its a lovely old village and they are all very keen to chat if you can try a bit of Portuguese! we look forward to seeing you again thanks again Clive

Special interest holidays:

Also enjoy hiking, mountain biking, river swimming, river beaches, yoga lessons, riding, kayaking, jeep safaris, hot springs, waterfalls, xisto villages, wine tours.

Coast/Beach:

The beautiful 'Rio Alva" river is a 2 minute drive, or a 10 minute walk from the house, it is a wide tree lined river with weir, beach, bar and diving board. There are many local river beaches and bars dotted around, all very different with lots to offer, other local river beaches include Gois and Avo. A drive to the coast and the beaches of Figueira do Foz is about a 40 minute drive.

Travel:

The closest airport to the house is Porto airport at about an 1 hr and 30 minute drive, the roads in Portugal are generally very clear. Lisbon is approximately 2.5 hrs. We would recommend hiring a car, to get the most from your time in the area.

The fast train from Lisbon to Coimbra is about 1 1/2 hours and around 20 euros

Distances:

The local market towns of Arganil and Coja are each about a 10 minute drive. The ancient university city of Coimbra is around 45 minutes, with the charming coastal town of Aveiro about an hour away. An hr and 40 will get you to the beautiful laid back city of Porto, and heading in land from the house you can be on the highest mountain range in Portugal the "Serra da Estrela" or mountain of the star, within an hour.

Further Details:

Walking distance from the house are two cafes a restaurant and the river beach cafe in season.

Arganil is the largest town nearby with 2 supermarkets, banks, cafes, restaurants and shops. There is a bustling market every Thursday morning supplying fresh local vegetables, fish, bread and cheeses. Also on sale are clothes, shoes, local terracotta pottery and pretty much everything else you can think of! Eduardo's cafe on the way into town is a favourite for light lunches cakes and coffee. While by the local River beach at Secarias is the "Gota da Agua" restaurant, serving good traditional Portuguese food, and the proprietor, Dulce will be happy to share her expertise on the wines of the region.

Coja is charming town, with a lovely square, perfect for relaxing under the plane trees, whilst enjoying a coffee and cake from the famous "Tuxa" boutique bakery. Continuing on through Coja you can wind you way up to the beautiful "Fraga de Pena" waterfalls,well worth a visit. Also a good day out is the traditional "Xisto" village of Piodao.
