Northern Portugal region
Casa do Limão is 20 minutes away from the famous Spa town of Luso, which nestles at the edge of the beautiful Bucaco National park (complete with Palace) and 30 minutes away from the vibrant and historic city of Coimbra. The wonderful city of Viseu in the famous Dão wine region is forty five minutes to the north.
There are numerous 'river beaches' in the area, and the Silver coast - Figueira da Foz, is an hour away - very popular with surfers and sun seekers.
The house provides a perfect base for those who love walking, beautiful scenery, varied sporting activities, and a rich and varied cultural experience.
The villa is situated in a peaceful, pretty village with mountain views. There are plenty of things to see and do in Beira Litoral, which is known as an area of outstanding beauty. The nearby market town of Mortagua (Just a 10 minute drive away) has all of the amenities you could need including a train station, shops, banks, supermarkets and a selection of restaurants serving a very high standard of food.
This rural retreat is a fantastic place to relax and unwind, the enclosed cobbled courtyard at the villa is perfect for BBQ's and al fresco dining.In the hot summer months there is a small splash pool to take a dip in and cool off.
There are several local markets where you can purchase cheeses, meats and sample some of the best piri piri chicken in the world! During the summer months there are frequent Saints Day Festa's in the various towns and villages locally, these are a great way to experience the local customs and the incredible friendliness of the Portuguese people.
The local area is perfect for a large range of outdoor pursuits including walking, cycling, canoeing, fishing and horse riding. There is also the amazing 'sky garden' experience, set within the beautiful botanical gardens in Coimbra old town - some of which is ideal for beginners, and others a definite challenge for thrill seekers!

"A well-equipped comfortable home from home"
We had a very enjoyable break at Casa do Limao in December. The house was equipped with everything we might need and was very comfortable. The central heating was welcome on wet days. The peaceful country situation of Casa do Limao was perfect, and the location made a good base for exploring this interesting part of Portugal. We would certainly recommend Caso do Limao to amyone who likes a rural retreat in a quiet location that is also not far from amenities.
Thank you for endorsing what we feel about this lovely and undiscovered part of Portugal! We really appreciate your positive feedback, and hope that you will come again! Marta

"Unspoilt haven of tranquility"
Fabulous country house in a beautiful unspoilt and largely undiscovered area of Portugal. The house has all the modern creature comforts, dishwasher, Internet, satelite TV, washing machine etc and is extremely comfortable and superbly equipped to a very high standard. It is in a stunning and naturally beautiful scenic area. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much for your lovely review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and you are very welcome back any time! Marta.
