VENUE FOR ALL SEASONS

Activities / Nature / Relaxation

Most people when considering Portugal for a holiday think summer / Algarve. Having lived in Central Portugal for the last ten years I’ve discovered that this country has so much more to offer, and having made my home in the very centre of this beautiful country I know that there is so much on offer on my doorstep.

Yes high summer is great but there are the wonderful periods of SPRING and AUTUMN which offer very different types of vacation. ‘GOOD WEATHER’ normally starts in APRIL and MAY can be so lovely, remember the seasons here are at least one month ahead of the south of the UK. The countryside is so fresh and green and alive with herbs and spring flowers. The skies are crystal blue and temperatures are warm enough to eat out of doors. Yes early mornings and evenings can be chilly but nothing compared with what you have endured back home, plus evenings around a log fire can be great. It’s also a quieter time to visit cities such as Lisboa and Porto, both of which can be a day's visit by train or car and overnight stays need not be expensive. We also offer to escort you so you discover the ‘locals view’ of cities. SPRING is also a great time to drive through Portugal’s highest mountain range, maybe even with snowcapped peaks. Then there’s the coast just 40mins easy drive (Portugal’s road network is very good with light traffic). Here you may even have some sunbathing weather on the mile after mile of deserted golden beaches, backed by pine forested sand dunes. Not that you will encounter many Portuguese as they consider any period either side July / August as winter !

Then there is FUN AUTUMN, feel like taking your UK frustrations out by ‘beating olive trees’! All part of the traditional way of olive picking which takes place during the end of OCTOBER / early NOVEMBER. You can even take home a bottle of your own pickings. But before that in late SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER comes the grape harvest . So if you feel like helping with the picking and sampling some of Portugal’s great and inexpensive wines (avoiding we suggest the local's homebrew !) just get picking. But the AUTUMN season offers so much more, whilst you can squeeze lemons all year and make marmalade both in summer and winter – did you know that orange trees produce twice a year ? How do you fancy eating figs straight from the tree, and have you ever picked a pomegranate? Sweet chestnuts abound in OCTOBER, great for log fire evenings.

Whilst this all sounds very charming don’t forget that most of the local people live off the land, cultivating small areas between the rocks, it’s hard and they are amongst the last of a dying breed as the youngsters head off to the cities – shame.

Then there are the other outdoor pursuits ranging from rock climbing to 4x4 offroading and even Lisbon’s famous Mini Marathons across the two beautiful bridges in March and September . Throughout the year there are Festivals of all sorts in cities and most towns. Full details of all the above on request.

THEN THERE IS CHRISTMAS / NEW YEAR

How about getting ‘Away from the Madding Crowd’ with log fires, country and beach walks and maybe Christmas lunch on the terrace in warm sunshine. Just avoid the local's invitation for Christmas Eve dinner – boil salted cod!

So for whatever season we will do our best to help you tailor a fantastic holiday, just get in contact.

The Costa de Prata/Silver Coast/Central Portugal region

Whilst Holiday Lettings show our location as Costa de Prata the more accurate positioning is the Pinhal Interior Norte area of Central Portugal in fact if you stuck a pin in the central of a map of Portugal you would be hard to miss us.

The small mountainside village of Salgueiro da Lomba (Willows on the Hill) with its stunning views near the charming town of Figueiró dos Vinhos, has five properties rebuilt by English designer Robert Conway who over the last few years, together with a small team of local craftsmen has lovingly restored these properties. One of the properties, Casa da Lomba has been featured in Portugal's leading house design magazine, Casas de Portugal. With the village situated in the very centre of this beautiful country its location offers a great jumping off point to explore so much that Central Portugal has to offer. Lisbon and Porto are approximately one and a half hours by car or train from the local station, 20 minutes away, thereby making daytrips easy and overnight stays need not be expensive. The trains are great and very inexpensive. For those wishing to potter locally there are a wealth of interest and activities. The Costa de Prata (Silver Coast) is an easy 40mins drive and has mile after mile of golden sand backed with pine clad dunes. Beira Litoral the old name of this region which spans inland as far as Pedrogão Grande and adjoins there the old regions of Beira Alta and Beira Baixa, all three areas are now known as Central Portugal. The west of the region contains more or less flat countryside and then gradually climbs eastwards as far as the spectacular Serra da Estrela, Portugal’s highest mountains with a peak of just under 2000m, and this just two and a half hours away.

Figueiro dos Vinhos

SOME IDEAS OF WHAT WE HAVE TO OFFER

Our nearest town is Avelar (5km) offering the essentials and for supermarkets you have Ansiao (15 mins) and Pombal (30mins) together with mainline railway station. Figueiró dos Vinhos (15 mins) the local administration centre has a great Saturday market plus supermarkets, and its backstreets are worth a wander.

Locally is the historic world heritage city of Tomar (30 mins) plus, Batalha (60 mins) Alcobaça (90 mins) and Òbidos the charming medieval walled city (90mins) deserve a visit. Then there is Coimbra (45mins) Portugal’s University City with Conimbriga, Portugal’s Pompei on route. The countryside in this area and eastwards is cloaked with a variety of trees including eucalyptus, cork oaks, mimosas, wild cherry, sweet chestnuts and pine making for a heady mixture.

ACTIVITIES / NATURE / RELAXATION
