What you will love about this home
We have a 4 bedrooms stone house, with small private swiming pool (7x3x1,2 meters), in the foothills of the Serra da Lousa, Central Portugal. Nestled high up in the Ceira valley, surrounded by unspoilt mountainous countryside. 25km from towns of Gois and Arganil, 1 hrs drive from historic Coimbra.
We are looking for a holiday home exchange. Would you be interested in swap?
Our house is available all year around but the best for you to come is from May to October (best weather).
We only can travel in August, each year.
What you will love in the neighborhood
The spectacular, diverse landscape ranges from eucalyptus, pine and cork oak forests on the lower slopes, with tracks climbing up to heather clad hilltops where you have breathtaking views. We are well away from the tourist trails
Our house is perfect for people who enjoy walking, cycling, swimming in the river, or just relaxing. From our veranda you can see the river, and in summer it's a wonderful way to cool off .
A little further to the east (about one and a half hours drive) there are the Serra de Estrela mountains which are the highest in Portugal. To the west, about the same distance, is the rugged Atlantic coast with sweeping surf beaches and small fishing villages.
Staying more locally you can explore small mountain roads leading to stone villages perched on hilltops or nestled in steep valleys, some of which have hardly changed in centuries.
