One-Off Feature

With its stunning veranda, mountain views, large lush garden and traditional terracotta tiling, Casa Branca is the ultimate rural retreat in the heart of the Portuguese countryside.

General Info

Spacious, stylish and surrounded by spectacular scenery, Casa Branca is a perfect example of an authentic yet contemporary Portuguese country cottage. The house itself is tasteful and homely, with cool living spaces and all the home comforts you could want. The gardens, part private and part shared, are truly gorgeous. And the setting is wonderful, with walks, swimming spots, beaches, market towns and outdoor pursuits all at your fingertips. Whether you’re here as a family or a group of friends (there are three additional houses on site) you’re sure to relax and unwind here.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

The pretty village of Salgueiro da Lomba is a haven of peace and tranquillity, but it is also the ideal jumping off point for discovering the many sights and activities of Central Portugal. There are lots of beautiful walks which start directly from your doorstep, there are mountains and valleys all around you or you can swim in the spectacular gorge just a few kilometres away. If you want to venture a little further it is still only a short drive to the long sandy beaches of the Silver Coast and the historic university and Templar towns of Coimbra and Tomar. Or you could wander round some of the closer neighbouring towns – Avelar (5km) offers all the essentials, Ansião and Pombal have good supermarkets, and Figueiró dos Vinhos (15 minutes) has a great Saturday market.
