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.

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.
