The Central Portugal region
Located between Lisbon and Oporto, with the country's largest motorway (the A1) crossing it in the north-south direction is Central Portugal and its Silver Coast . The mild temperatures and white sandy beaches offer one the choice between practising water sports and the calm life of the seaside.
The historic city of Coimbra, classified as a World Heritage site by UNESCO, is located in central Portugal, 120 km south of Porto, 195 km north of Lisbon. One of Portugal's biggest crossroads, Coimbra is served by the A1. It is set by the Mondego River, about 40 km east of Figueira da Foz, a neighbour coastal city with several beaches, summer and seaport facilities on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Just outside the municipality, there are also several picturesque mountain towns such as Lousã and Penacova and spa towns and villages such as Luso, Buçaco and Curia.
Coimbra is famous for its monuments, churches, libraries, museums, parks, nightlife, healthcare and shopping facilities, but above all for its intense cultural life, centered on the University of Coimbra, one of the oldest universities in Europe. Situated on a hill overlooking the city, the University of Coimbra with its colleges grew and evolved over more than seven centuries within the old town. Notable university buildings include the 12th century Cathedral of Santa Cruz and a number of 16th century colleges, the Royal Palace of Alcáçova, which has housed the University since 1537, the Joanine Library with its rich baroque decor, the 18th century Botanical Garden and University Press, as well as the large “University City” created during the 1940s.
Lousã is a small town in central Portugal, with a natural beauty, but out of the main tourist circuits, being a good destination to the seekers of nature. Most people come to Lousã as a springboard for outdoor recreation. The Serra da Lousã mountain range is the nearest although it's easy to get into the Serra da Estrela Natural Park to the east.
The Serra da Lousã mountain range covers over 4,200 hectares with its highest point of 1,202 metres at Alto do Trevim. The underlying rock is dominated by schist which gives rise to a temperate forest habitat over much of the hillsides. Trees and shrubs in the woodlands include holly, laurel, birch, American oak, chestnut, cedar and pine with old coppices of oak around the villages. Cork oak and olive trees are more common on the lower slopes with heathers and gorse dominating the thinner soils on the upper slopes. The historic schist villages - Aldeias de Xisto - are a must see.
Apart from independent exploring of the area by walking and hiking around the Serra da Lousa and lazing around on the many river-beaches, the area is popular for all sorts of recreational activities such as canoeing, cycling and mountain biking, hang-gliding and 4x4 driving.

We stayed for 10 nights in August. 2 adults and 2 children. The villa was beautiful and comfortable. The pool was the icing in the cake. Nothing was too much trouble for Antonio and his wife, and we were made to feel very welcome. Located in a quiet village but not too far from amenities. We had a fantastic time exploring Central Portugal, which has lots to offer. I'd recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing time away from the crowds of the coast. I can only think of one small thing that could have improved our stay, which would have been better cooking facilities, however it did not detract from our enjoyment of the accommodation.
Thank you so much for your kind review. It has been a real pleasure to welcome you all. Regarding the kitchen, in fact, it isn't a fully equipped kitchen ready to prepare large dinners. It just have the basic to prepare breakfast and light meals: sink; refrigerator with separate freezer; micro-wave; a small electric stove; kettle and an automatic coffee pod machine.
