About our home

Our lovely home in the mountains of Central Portugal is a uniquely and artistically built split level design Bungalow.
Built in the attractive local stone with thick walls the house remains cool in the hot summers and warm in the winter.
The main entrance from a quiet lane is through an open courtyard into the upper level.
It has 3 double bedrooms on this level all with arched windows looking over the garden with views of the surrounding forested mountains and a good sized bathroom with modern shower, washbasin, bidet and toilet.
The lower level reached by 4 steps has an office area, large cloakroom/bathroom with bath, washbasin and toilet.
The spacious lounge area with large modern wood fired stove leads through French doors onto a double sided covered verandah and patio area.
The stone clad lounge also leads through an archway into a wide and bright kitchen/dining area. The kitchen is well fitted throughout with fitted cupboards with granite tops, large fridge, freezer, dish washer, gas oven and hob, washing machine, bar fridge etc. the dining room furniture seats 8/10 in comfort and is made from Rhodesian Teak.
The house is tiled throughout and features wooden beamed ceilings.
The patio leads down through the landscaped garden and colourful garden to the saline treated pool and patio area. The garden and pool are very private being secluded and not overlooked.
At the bottom of the garden is the tiled garage which doubles as a boathouse as there is a safe and private parking garden standing outside the main gate.
The newly built 17ft. Sailing dinghy and trailer would be available for use by agreement as there are lovely lakes nearby and the coast only just over an hour away.


More about us

  1. After 40 years farming in Africa we decided to try the peace and quiet of a Portugal with all it had to offer and it's friendly peoples.
    We return to the UK often to visit relatives and head for Norfolk.
    We would mainly be interested in exchanging homes either in Norfolk or France for longer periods in 2015 but would be interested to hear from like minded folk who own peaceful homes preferably in the countryside also for shorter periods and possibly over Christmas.

Where is it?


This area of Portugal is delightful, tranquil with beautiful scenery yet easily accessible on the excellent Portuguese roads to many places of interest. We are situated just 15 minutes from the pretty country town of Arganil, 35 minutes to the lovely and picturesque old University City of Coimbra on the river Mondego with plenty of cultural things to see and excellent shopping malls; an hour from the coast, with beautiful beaches and little fishing villages; an hour and a half from Porto on the river Douro with the Port Wine houses and many vineyards and the iconic City of Lisbon is easily reached in just over two hours drive or an hour and a half it the excellent Alfa Pendular train service out of Coimbra.

The stunning scenery of the high Serra D 'Estrela mountains is lovely drive of just over an hour and offers the highes point in Portugal with views to match and of course the popular ski area in the winter and the City of Braga and beautiful mountains of Northern Portugal well worth a trip.

Based here in Central Portugal you are never far from a good days outing.
