The Costa de Prata/Silver Coast/Central Portugal region

The university city of Coimbra, one of the oldest in Europe and once the capital of Portugal during the time of the Moors occupation. The city is on the banks of the Rio Mondego approx. 45kms from the holiday cottage and the ancient city centre has narrow cobbled streets that you can explore at your leisure.

The Serra de Estrela is the highest mountain range in Portugal and is approx. 50kms drive away with snow here in the winter months and skiing on the slopes.

Figueira de Foz is the nearest seaside town and is approx. 1 hrs drive from Bocado. The beach here is very wide with silver sands and there are some good fish restaurants in the town.


Bocado is a small village nestling in the foothills of the Serra de Acors. There are fantastic views from the front of the house across the valley to the mountains beyond.

Arganil is the main district town 7kms away where there are supermarkets, restaurants, bakers etc, a market is held here every Thursday.

If you tire of just lazing in the sun then the river beaches along the Rio Alva are just a short drive away where you can swim in the clear, cool water, there is a popular river beach in the ancient market town of Coja 7kms away. The nearest river beach is at Folques approx. 3kms away.

"It was home from home but with much better views"

Jane was very helpful and made us welcome, one day she showed us around the village.
The house was very nice, clean and comfortable and had everything that was needed and
plenty of logs for the fire. The views are breath taking and the fresh oranges from the tree
were heavenly.
This was our second time at one of Jane's cottages and both times we enjoyed our stay, we will book again anytime we plan to go there.
Many thanks for making us welcome !!!
