I have had a small beach built around an upright swimming pool measuring 3.23 metres by 0.9 metres deep. This is perfect for relaxing in on those hot days, drink a beer, admire the fantastic view from the pool and when you have finished cooling off you can get out and relax on the sun loungers situated on the beach next to it, good ay?

|Further details outdoors|
The pool is an upright pool. 3.2 mtrs wide by 0.8 mtrs deep. Not a huge pool but more than adequate to relax in and sunbath in if you wish. This is surrounded by a small man made beach giving the perfect surroundings for relaxation on the doorstep without the hassle of driving to a beach.
Completely safe for children.
The outside of this property is beautifully designed. There is a large cobbled stoned courtyard leading to a side gate into the garden. Double gates to outside the property and of course to the converted barn where 3rd bedroom and bathroom is. There is garden around the courtyard with varied flowers and shrubs and of course the patio table and chairs. These chairs now live on a large patio/deck area off the back door, this measures 5mtrs X 4.5 mtrs making it a very big area making plenty of space available for sun loungers on it if you prefer to not sit on your very own beach.
Last but not least, the absolutely amazing views of the Eucalyptus trees and in the distance the famous mountains can be seen on a clear day.

"Great Holiday from Start to Finish"
From the initial contact I was impressed by how easy the booking process was and how helpful the owner was. Having not been to this area of Portugal before I found the directions from Lisbon airport very precise and located the property without any problems.
As arranged I visited the nearby bar to pick up the keys to the house from the owners of the bar and took the opportunity to partake in some light refreshment following the journey. During this initial visit it became apparent just how friendly these people were affording us every courtesy with offers of help with any problems we might encounter.
We entered the property from the courtyard into the lounge and were immediately impressed by the size of the room and the homely feel with the furnishings and pictures adorning the walls. In this room were two large leather sofa's, six seater dining table, large television with satelite connection, various small tables and lighting. Our next area to visit was the kitchen/diner which was very well laid out with a six seater table and a welsh dresser housing an ample supply of glasses with which to entertain if needed. The kitchen itself housed a large cooker with six ring hob which we found to be more than adequate for our needs floor and wall mounted cupboards housed all the crockery, pans and cutlery that we required leaving plenty of room for dry googs storage. Just off the kitchen was an appliance room housing a rather large fridge/freezer which was more tham large enough to hold a good supply of beer on top of other refridgerated goods. Further off this room was the laundry room housing the washing machine and ironing area.
Up a short flight of stairs we had two bedrooms of very good size both with double beds and wardrobes. Leading off from the landing was a shower/toilet room with a shower that was powerful for our needs.
Across the courtyard was a barn conversion which housed a very large bedroom complete with double bed, wardrobe, chests of drawers & two seater sofa. All this furniture and there was still ample room to move around which was a blessing as one couple from our party used this as their accomodation throughout our visit. The view from the window in this barn conversion looked down into the valley which was substantially planted with eucalyptus trees. Off this room was an enormous walk in shower room which also housed a toilet and large wash basin unit. The shower which was able to be locked from the main room became a must use every day for all in our party due to it's size and large shower head.
The accomodation combined with the ease of booking made this holiday one of the most enjoyable we have ever taken anywhere and I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone who requests it.
Thank you very much for your review. I am so pleased that you found everything enjoyable. Casa De Vista De Montahna is, as you say, in a lovely location and lots to do in and around it. I look forward to hearing back from you for your next booking as arranged.

"What a great location, Fantastic stay!"
I, my partner, and a couple of close friends stayed at the Casa de Vista de Montahna last year and we were all very happy with the holiday overall!. The location is overlooking these beautiful mountains and eucalyptus trees, (didn't see any Koalas! ha).
The inside is very spacious and well designed. Large Kitchen area with all pans, utensils, (more than enough) cutlery, and crockery supplied. Great oven and VERY large hob top (again to easily cater for larger parties), and microwave. Didn't need to think about anything other than getting the food. (very big fridge and freezer also for bigger parties.)
Good sized, utility room for washing, ironing, drying etc but we tried to use this an minimally as possible of course! (it's a holiday!)
Has two dining tables, one in the kitchen which is suited for breakfast, and lunch (if you're not outside furniture lapping up the early sun!), overlooking the courtyards and mountains and another for dining table for dinner. Lots of nice painting on the walls also making it feel very homely.
Lots of seating areas, sofa's etc when watching TV or DVD's, (also has Satellite!) in the lounge area.
Good sized bedrooms and plenty of storage with wardrobes and draws in all. Nice bathroom inside the house with shower but not a touch on the one outside in the converted Barn room.
This is a great room/ area with an en suite bathroom and large walk-in shower/ wet room.
There are two bedrooms inside the main house anyway but having a third converted Barn area just the other side of the courtyard is perfect for larger parties wanting to sleep more than 4 in the main house, or just 2 couples who want a little privacy from the other couple when going off to bed after a few wines ;). (this also has a great little window in it the overlooks the back of the forest on a big slope so absolute privacy with a complete open window, lovely!
The location is great access from the main road, but very private also because of how it is set back in the side road. It has good (safe) parking area around the back for at least two cars. (also an area out front for one more car if necessary, right next to the cherry tree you can pick from!)
Within stumbling (yes, stumbling is an accurate use of the word) distance of the side road is a GREAT little bar and cafe. Does breakfast in the morning if you want to eat out of the house or is your first morning there and you haven't gone to the supermarket yet.
They are such good costs, free WiFi and everything is soo cheap, you almost want to tip and pay more for everything when they tell you how much it is!? Beer is very cheap and Wine is soo good and soo cheap as it is all home grown out there.
Such friends owners for the bar cafe and before you have any concerns, the outside of the cafe / bar is very clean, and very quiet.
The side road is opposite a bus stop that takes you straight into town, (Mortagua).
There are recycling areas a little bit back from the bus stop, (so minimal walking with the big black bin bags of empty beer and wine bottles!)
We went to a place called Luso which was a great town, lots of history and only around 45 minutes away, definitely worth a visit!. (the opposite direction to Mortagua).
The town of Mortagua where you'll find everything you need, (including supermarket, more bars, restaurants, patisseries/ bakeries etc) is only 10 minutes away.
Would DEFINITELY be returning here again and also recommending to others, (hence my essay above, was worth every minute of writing!)
Thank you Maggie!
Thank you very much for a fantastic compliment for Casa de Vista De Montahna.I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and everything was there for your requirements. I look forward to welcoming you again when you are ready.
