There is also the Holy Shrine of Fatima, the Knights Templar castle of Tomar, the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Convento De Christo, Constancia and Castelo Do Bode. Portugal's largest caves at Mira de Aire, a Dinossaur Footprints and the Gothic Monastery at Batalha are also a pleasant drive away, as is the walled city of Obidos.

The coast is a little over an hour away with the beautiful beach at Nazaré, the walled town and fishing port of Peniche, and the lively Figueira Da Foz with its superb beaches and surf, café bars and casino.

In the ancient city of Conimbriga you will find some of the largest Roman ruins in Portugal.

Pombal is a 75 minute drive west. It is a small city and provides an excellent modern train service to the main cities and to the north, south and east of Portugal.

The castle sits on a hill surrounded by woodland overlooking the town below and was built originally in 1161 by Gualdim Pais, Grand Master of the Orders of the Knights Templars.

Coimbra, Portugal's 3rd city, is a 75 minute drive and home to one of the world’s oldest universities, founded in 1290 by King Dinis.

Coimbra sits on the edge of the River Mondego. In the old town narrow cobbled streets lead to hidden squares with cafe bars, shops and ancient churches.

This festival is celebrated in remembrance of the offer made to Jesus Christ by his followers, when Christ came down the Olive trees Hill, after having stayed there, in solitude, for 40 days in meditation. People get a small bunch of olive tree branches and rosemary, they then go to the church in procession. Then, in the church, the priest blesses the branches with the holy water and says Mass.

Portugal's National Day and Camões Day: takes place on the 10th of June.

"Laid back and spoiled"

Bill and Jude Thanks very much for sharing your idyll with us during our stay. We arrived as strangers and left as firm friends.
The welcome pack left us with little shopping to do making more time for leisure pursuits, and the accommodation was faultless from the well equipped studio to the BBQ and pool. For the first time ever we truly did not want to leave.
The area itself is beautiful - mountains, trees, clean air and that amazing view of the river everyday. All of which is taken in your stride with no rush and friendly, generous locals you really are spoiled. Long may it continue.
