Casa De Vista De Montanha
This property is available for short term i.e. holiday rental only – from £650 per week for up to 8 people
‘Casa De Vista De Montanha’ or ‘Mountain View House’ is a beautiful villa surrounded by eucalyptus trees, clean air and amazing views. With tranquil settings it is situated in a small village called Barracão near the town of Mortágua in Central Portugal.
This spacious home has 3 main bedrooms, 2 indoor bathrooms (+1 outdoor bathroom), an upstairs lounge with dining table and pull-out bed couch (4th bed), a large dining room/ downstairs lounge, a utility/ laundry room, and a large kitchen.
Outside there is a Patio, 2 x bay Parking, a Courtyard with brick built BBQ, Decorative garden with home grown vegetables, leading onto an amazing Infinity pool which overlooks miles of landscape and mountain view.
All bedrooms have large double beds with wardrobes and bedside drawers. There are plenty of towels and bed linen for each bedroom, (with additional linen and towels supplied if the 4th bed is needed).
The 1st indoor bathroom has shower, toilet, drawers and large vanity mirror. (There is also a hair-dryer and hair straighteners there for your convenience.)Whilst the 2nd indoor bathroom has fixed shower fitting inset in a relaxing candle-lit bath. The 3rd bathroom is outside next to the infinity pool and has a shower and toilet.
The lounge speaks for itself, it is huge and has a 2 seater as well as a 3 seater leather sofa. With a cosy log burner in the lounge for any slightly more chilly (or romantic) nights, which also acts as central heating for the rest of the house.
Patio doors in the downstairs lounge also lead out to the lower level of the enclosed courtyard.
In the large open plan Kitchen we have plenty of cook-wear, cutlery and table-wear; a large fridge freezer, as well as a small breakfast bar and (most importantly) a local wine rack. There are 2 indoor dining tables and 1 outdoor dining table on the patio (all 6 person tables).
From the enclosed Courtyard past the brick BBQ and the outdoor beer fridge you will enter the decorative private garden, which contains herbs and vegetables to eat (as well as a few orange trees dotted around). That leads onto the poolside area that has sun loungers, outdoor shower + bathroom and an amazing infinity pool.
“The aroma of the Eucalyptus first thing in the morning is unique.”
There is a very friendly bar a short walk from the house, which has friendly locals, good wines, beers and local spirits; plus football and pool tables. Although there are a couple of shops for bare essentials and some local bars and restaurants there is also a bus service that stops at the top of my road, one going to Luso and the opposite direction goes to Mortagua. This is of course if you do not have a car.
