Casa da Toupeira (Mole Cottage) is a light, airy and very comfortable holiday cottage with fabulous open views over the local countryside. It has been tastefully decorated and furnished with exposed stone walls, wooden doors and windows and cool tiled floors. There is horse riding (lessons and trail riding) 10 minutes walk away.
The downstairs area is open-plan with a kitchen and dinning area at one end and the seating area at the other. The kitchen is fully fitted with a gas cooker, a fridge/freezer and a washing machine. All crockery, cutlery, pots and pans are supplied along with basic cooking supplies. The lounge has a large sofa bed (kingsize) and two easy chairs along with occasional tables and lamps. There is a wood burning stove to take the chill off the air in the winter months.
Upstairs there is a double bedroom with a door to a small balcony - perfect for morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening! There is also a small single bedroom. The bathroom has a white suite of toilet, wash hand basin and bath with shower over.
Outside there is a private, tiled patio with a table and chairs for al fresco meals and ample space for sunbathing. Close by is the natural spring and river beach at Agroal, the heritage centre of Tomar is 15 minutes drive away and the coast is about an hour.

The Costa de Prata/Silver Coast/Central Portugal region
Central Portugal is a wonderful area to visit and quite unlike the better known southern costal resorts. Small villages are dotted around, most with weekly markets where you can buy everything from fresh, locally grown, fruit and vegetables to a raucous rooster! The village bars serve delicious wine from grapes pressed the year before at the community lagar (wine press) at 75c a glass and you can enjoy a two course lunch, with wine and coffee, for €7.
There is a natural spring and bathing pool nearby at Agroal for cooling off and slightly further away the fabulous Castelo do Bode - Portugal's second largest reservoir - perfect for swimming and all manner of watersports. Tomar is well worth exploring, with it's maze of cobbled streets, numerous bars and restaurants and the castle which sits high above the town. Coimbra is just over an hours drive away, as is the coastal town of Nazare and the walled city of Obidos.
