“A jewel in rural Portugal”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

We were looking for a place to stay instead of going all the way into Coimbra and discovered this fantastic B&B in the wilderness. Though we arrived late, Joke made us dinner while Wim served up a great apertif. The location and owners were just fabulous. Wim and Joke were great company and we had a fun discussing the US elections and how Wim and Joke ended up in Portugal from Belgium. We had to leave early the next day, so we didn't get to spend much time exploring. This location is on our must-visit list for our next trip!

Room Tip: All rooms have been re-done. I don't think you can go wrong with any of them.

Getting pampered by Joke and Wim really was the best way to finish our holiday in Portugal. Their B&B has the advantages of being in the middle of nowhere, while the nice cities are an acceptable drive away. Everything in Casa of Nascer Do Sol is well taken care of, from the rooms to the pool, and from the facilities to all the information on daytrips Joke and Wim provide. Worth mentioning separately is breakfast. That was simply amazing, and from a standard you expect only in the most expensive hotels. We had difficulties to choose what to eat because there was so much to choose from. In the end of course we ate everything and weren't hungry for lunch... Joke and Wim are fairly new to this business, but they already now exactly how to pamper their guests!

We had planned our holiday in Portugal and wanted to see the main cities and some time in Algarve. Our first stop was Casa O Nascer do Sol where we stayed for five days. Arriving in the small village we were welcomed by Wim and Joke. The room was perfect including terras with a view over the hills and swimming pool. From there we visited over the next days Coimbra (university city) Porto (one hour drive) and had a lovely meal in Penacova with view over the river. Breakfast was excellent. Great to be able to have a dive in the pool after visiting the area. Internet may not be a must for some, but for me very nice to stay in contact with home.

You couldn't ask for anything more. Lovely location, high standard of accommodation, and very welcoming hosts. We shared three greats nights here with Wim and Joke, who catered for our every need. Great food with evening meals on request, which we shared with the hosts. We were treated more like friends than customers and they could not have done more for us.

After a nice ride through the hills around Penacova we arrived at this house on the "mainstreet" of this small village. Wim and Joke had a drink with the neighbors, what means a quarter of the village was there :-) So it is very quiet there: you wake up with the sound of the birds and go sleeping with the sound of some grasshoppers...
The small swimming pool is a real pleasure when you come "home" after a day of visiting one of the many interesting places in the area: the forest of Bucaco, Luso, Coimbra, Mira, Aveiro,...
