Helene Properties

Houses in Portugal

Casa Helene is a well equipped ‘home from home’ with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and sleeps 4 guests very comfortably. This traditional stone built cottage lies in the heart of Central Portugal, on the edge of a small quiet village called Vale de Vide, surrounded by forests and is the perfect place to get away from it all and completely unwind. Whilst it retains all the original characteristics, Casa Helene has recently been renovated to a high standard.

As our guests you will enjoy exclusive use of the property and gardens.

The property has a modern interior with kitchen/diner/lounge, one bedroom and bathroom all on the ground floor; creating an easy access living space for those people with limited mobility. This a great space to dine and relax, equipped with a log burning stove, flat screen TV, DVD, and Wi-Fi with unlimited internet access.

Guests are welcome to pick seasonal fruit from the mature fruit trees, (we have figs, olives, cherry, peach and persimmon). There is private access to the cottage, which has its own patio area, and the gardens are open to all our guests. A car is essential to explore and enjoy everything this area has to offer and there is a private parking space at the cottage. Parking for additional cars is available close by.
Vale de Vide is 7 km away from Mortagua where you will find all of the amenities you could need. Train station, banks, swimming pool, supermarkets, restaurants and bars. While, hopefully, you will not need them, it is reassuring to know that there is both a medical and dental centre in Mortagua. A ten minute walk [uphill] or a 2 minute car ride takes you to Barracao where there are three restaurants, a bar and a shop. These are truly local establishments i.e. you will need a little Portuguese or your phrase book to order anything!
