Peaceful and tastefully renovated, with stunning mountain views, Casa do Pomar is an authentic yet stylish house in the heart of the beautiful Portuguese countryside.
Whether you’re here as a family, a couple or a group of friends, Casa do Pomar is sure to offer you the tranquillity and escape you’re looking for. The house has everything you could need for a relaxing home-from-home experience, the views from the terrace have to be seen to be believed, the swimming pool within the grounds is a wonderful oasis and the surrounding countryside is full of walks, swimming spots, beaches, market towns and outdoor pursuits. What more could you want?
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.
Lisboa and Porto airports are 190km away and the nearest train station, Pombal, is 25km from the house. The owner can arrange transfers but it is advisable to hire a car so you can get around during your stay. Detailed driving directions can be provided.
