The Villa

The ValleyThe villa is situated on the slopes of a river valley, overlooking a lush area of small-scale agriculture (maize, vines, a wide range of vegetables, and just about every European fruit that you can think of) with wooded hills beyond. The villa is the penultimate house as you leave a diminutive cluster of buildings and is bordered by a eucalyptus and pine coppice

The Local ChurchA short walk away is a delightful little village where you will find a selection of café-bars, a lovely church, a monthly market and a few small shops.

A little further a field you will discover a number of small towns, each with a character of its own, and within a 40 minute drive is Portugal's third largest city, the former capital and university centre of Coimbra.
