Forest fires of October 15th/16th have burned some of the surrounding area) please see updated photos. New laws preventing eucalyptus plantation should prevent this happening again. The undergrowth will recover fast but the trees will take time.
This house has been beautifully renovated from a ruin in 2014. Situated in the heart of the Portuguese national park. It is also a home, so is furnished and fitted to a very high standard. You will not be disappointed. This is a pretty special place.
The nightly price has been reduced for this period of regrowth to our valleys. Do not be dissuaded by this for you will find a very beautiful home to stay in. It won't feel like a rental because it's just too lovely. You will feel, 'at home' here. The house is gorgeous inside and fully equipped for family living. During the winter, the whole house is very warm, with very comfortable sofas and a large well stocked open fire as well as wall radiators. In the summer, because the walls are thick and every window and door has additional mosquito blinds, you won't feel hot or be bothered by insect bites. If you have little children, there is a high chair and cot. (Please give me notice for the cot to be prepared) I add age appropriate toys such as lego and a large brio train set.
If you like cooking, the kitchen is properly equipped for just that with additional gadgets for juicing, blending, crockpots, coffee maker etc. Bed linen is always cotton or Egyptian cotton. Both beds are new. The second bedroom has a large brand new bed and mattress July 2017. Curtains are heavy and lined to keep out the sun and to keep the house warm in winter. There is satalite TV and wifi. The open plan lounge and kitchen are very comfortable and has wonderful views of our valley.
Guests have the use of the entire house with the exception of one back room which remains locked. Besides the stunning open kitchen, lounge and dining room, there is a downstairs wash room and toilet. Through a back door from the kitchen, there is a small area for drying laundry (additional to the tumble dryer) and access to the boiler room and water tank room and steps up to the large sun terrace. Internal stairs take you up to two bedrooms with a large bathroom one bedroom has double door access to the sun terrace too.

Please park above the property on the track. Access to the parking space in front of the house is only suitable for 4x4 vehicles. I am happy to meet you in my Nissan Navana and drive you down if you have luggage. Please try to arrive before 8pm if you want my assistance. Our family is early to bed and early to rise. You will need to check in without meeting me on your arrival, if you do arrive after 8pm. The lights will be on and door unlocked in this case. To walk down takes 5 minutes but it is a dirt track and at one point a little steep.
No smoking inside the house please. No pets in the main house. (The separate listing for the studio flat, allows for small pets)
This is a beautiful national park and we are very fortunate to live here. All of the families living in our valley are kind, helpful and considerate. Please be respectful of noise control after 10pm.
