Helene Properties is a combination of Casa Helene and Villa Helene, and together they have 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. These co-located properties share a fully walled courtyard, a barn, and gardens. As well as providing a large party [9 – 12 guests] with a fantastic base for a sun-soaked holiday – our log burners make these properties a great choice for a winter break too!
Both Casa and Villa Helene, which have recently been renovated to a high standard, lye 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.
The courtyard is entirely enclosed and creates a safe and private place. Here the children ( and adults ) can play without supervision. It is also an ideal place to sunbathe and eat al fresco. The courtyard has an above ground plunge pool. Access to the barn comes from the courtyard, where amongst other things the wood for the wood stoves is stored. Under the barn there is a room where all the leisure facilities are stored, e.g sun loungers, umberellas, tables, chairs etc.
The gardens contain a number of mature fruit trees, we have figs, olives, cherry, peach and persimmon.
A car is essential to explore and enjoy everything this area has to offer and there is sufficient parking space at Helene properties for four cars.
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, shops, bars and parks. 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 general store. These are truly local establishments i.e. you will need a little Portuguese or your phrase book handy to order anything!
Helene Properties is an ideal base for a wide range of activities and sightseeing opportunities. You will be spoilt for choice with the selection of destinations to enjoy on your trips out, including the University City of Coimbra (for shoppers and lovers of architecture), the broad white sandy beaches of the Silver Coast to the west and to the East, the highest mountains in Portugal at Serra da Estrela. Details of these and many other destinations can be found on the Places to Go page.
Activities in the area include swimming, tennis, cycling, canoeing, hiking/walking etc. Again details of these and many other activities can be found on the Things to Do page.
Helene Properties can be accessed via Porto [1.5 hours by car] or Lisbon [ just over 2 hours by car] Airports.
