The Costa de Prata/Silver Coast/Central Portugal region
The Ribatejo is the most central of the traditional provinces of Portugal, with no coastline or border with Spain. The region is crossed by the river Tagus (Ribatejo = "Shores of Tagus") and is home to some of the richest agricultural lands in the country. The region has many vineyards and produces a wide range of exceptional Portuguese wines.
Throughout the summer, the surrounding villages hold local festivals, often with live music and entertainment and always with plenty of barbequed chicken and fresh fish on offer. There are castles, potteries and beautiful caves plus many vineyards see. For the more adventurous, watersports, horse riding and golf can be arranged. The Castelo do Bode river beach is 0.5 km - 5 mins by car.

"A wonderful 'getaway' from it all....."
My wife and I stayed at Casa Do Vale last September for a week. We basically wanted some sunshine after the miserable UK summer - and we were not disappointed.
The villa is large and well equipped. The kitchen has everything you need to self cater, and we also made good use of the BBQ there.
We spent plenty of time lazing by the pool, which is huge, but also made use of our hire car to explore. The owners have left a folder at the villa of suggested trips - so we just chose a couple of those. Tomar is a must-see, and is only 20 minutes drive away - with cobbled streets, restaurants, shops and a couple of big supermarkets (excellent fish for the bbq!). We also took a picnic to a local lake, which was a great afternoon out.
Everything about the holiday was really enjoyable - except we only had one week. We are returning later this year - for two!

"Look no further than Casa Do Vale"
I have stayed at Casa Do Vale four times now, and each time it is more lovely. We always arrive to a hamper full of goodies, and have our first alfresco meal sitting on the terrace, glass of wine in hand, looking at the amazing views.
Last time we holidayed with extended family, so there were 7 of us, but there was still plenty of space with each bedroom having its own bathroom.
The pool is gorgeous with a large patio to enjoy the sunshine. The gazebo provides welcome shade in the middle of the day for little ones to enjoy an afternoon nap.
The teenagers that were with us spent plenty of time in the games room, watching dvd's and playing various games. They also enjoyed strolling into Serra for lunch (the cafe does wonderful toasties, aswell as eveing meals).
If you are looking for bright lights and nightclubs, then then this is not the place for you, but if you are looking for a luxurious villa, a pool of your own, some sunshine, and complete peace - I can highly recommend Casa Do Vale.
