The area of Central Portugal is very beautiful with winding rivers in green valleys and small villages dotted along the hill sides. There are lots of river beaches to be discovered along the river Alva, the nearest is 3kms away in Folques with one of the prettiest in Coja approx. 7 kms from the house.
The main district town of Arganil is approx. 7kms away where you will find a selection of shops, supermarkets, butchers, bakers, restaurants and cafes as well as banks and a Post Office.

The house is situated on a hillside in a quiet little village location with spectacular views down the valley and beautiful sunsets. An ideal retreat for a relaxing and peaceful holiday!
