The Costa de Prata/Silver Coast/Central Portugal region
Casa das Poetas lies on the celebrated Silver Coast of Portugal, in the hills of historical region of Estremadura, which derives its name from the Latin Extrema Durii (beyond the Douro), which once was the border between Moorish South and the Christian Kingdoms of the North. The area is steeped in history. Juxtaposition of Islam and Christianity during the Middle Ages, Portuguese wars of independence from Spanish Crown, all left their mark on architectural and cultural diversity of the region. Cistercian abbey at Alcobaca (UNESCO heritage site and the biggest active monastery in Europe), Templars headquarter of Tomar (another Unesco heritage site), Holy grounds of Fatima, cathedral of Batalha (yet another UNESCO heritage site), medieval castles of Leiria and Porto Mos, fully preserved medieval city of Obidos are all within 40min drive from the villa.
City of Alcobaca is 5 km from the house. This old charming town has two wonderful points of interest: the fabulous old Cistercian Abbey, which is a UNESCO heritage site; and the most famous pastelaria (confectionary store) named Alcoa (after the river which gave the town her name) with cakes and sweets to die for. However, if nature is your game, coming here you will be spoilt for choice:- Wind surfing and paragliding on the beaches of Peniche and Salgado, sunbathing and swimming in the mondaine resorts of Foz de Arelho and Sao Martinho de Porto, climbing the mount of Sao Bras, walking or exploring the caves of Serra de Candeiros, all within easy reach from the property. In addition to the above you can also enjoy the game of tennis on a professional court 7 minutes by car from the house, pamper yourself at the Spa nearby, book private horse riding lessons 20 minutes away. Information on all the above is provided in your welcome package. And last but not least - Nazaré! The old fishing town is reinventing herself. Fishermen still go out every morning on their boats, and the town still preserves its old charm, yet you can enjoy here the most innovative cuisine, get fabulous cocktails by night, watch Bertolt Brecht play in Chaby Pinheiro theatre. However, as of last November 2011 Nazaré was truly put on the world map, when Garrett McNamara broke the world record for the largest wave surfed, by successfully navigating a 90-foot wall of watery death in Nazaré.
Come and enjoy!
