“Rural Portugal at it's best!”

Fantastic place in the middle of olive groves and great boulders with wild native pine forests. The small holding is down a long track. On the way from the village we turn a corner at the junction where 3 shepherds always seem to be sitting minding their sheep, they wave as we pass. We step back into a place with old values on the one hand, but all the amenities we could need on the other.
We were made to feel most welcome by the owners, who have moved here from the Uk and are now much involved with the Portugese local community. They have lovingly, over some years, restored the abandoned old Quinta and smaller house nearby, which is the guest house. We visited in January, while much of Europe had dismal weather. We basked in hot sun in the day time, and snuggled in front of the wood burning stove in the freezing evenings. There are two freindly dogs, a few farm animals, and interesting bird life flitting along the River Cobral which bounds the property on one side. We were given useful guidance on walks and interesting places to visit nearby. Ishbel cooked a delicious evening meal for us.

“A perfect stay”
Reviewed 15 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

For us, this place is heaven on earth. Peace and tranquillity tucked away far from the madding crowd. The owners offer a taste of the good life, we loved it, hope you do too.

“Beautiful, Serene Location with Lovely People”

We staid at Ishbel's and Richard's cottage for nearly a week and it was perfect. The house is really charming and unique, with lots of lovely details, and everything we possibly needed, including the wonderful homemade soap and their own olive oil. From the cottage terrace we had a beautiful view down the valley and the mountains. The area is great for walking and exploring, with the village Lagares da Beira close by.
Ishbel and Richard are wonderful hosts, kind people and they created a magical place.
Thank you for all your help, it was a pleasure to meet you!

“Great place for family vacation”

We've stayed at Quinta do Cobral/Casa da Bezerra for 7 nights and loved every second of it. Ish and Rich are wonderful and made everything to make us feel at home. The house is very nice, comfortable and has everything you need. No TV was also a plus. My kids, aged 4 and 2, enjoyed the freedom to play around with the dog, feed the animals, swimm in the river or jump in the pool. The weather was extremely hot then so to walk on the river was especially nice. The location is also great to explore the surroundings. We are definitely going back.
