“What a wonderful break”
Reviewed 29 April 2017 for a stay in October 2016

We were looking for family time, peace and tranquility but with stuff to do in the day time. We found it all here. The house was gorgeous, the pool area was perfect. The boys didn't want to leave the accommodation.
But it's well worth checking out the extensive book of things to do that Marta and George have prepared, its full of ideas. We can thoroughly recommend the Bussaco Palace for afternoon tea/lunch and a wander. And hire bikes for a trip along the wide meandering river, its glorious.
We had everything we needed in the house, infact we even came home and bought the same coffee machine it was so good.
Thanks Marta and George and your fab team. We will be back x

Hi Vicky! Thank you for your lovely review! I think your boys have passed into village folk law, swimming in late October! You would be very, very welcome to stay again at any point - just book your flights! Marta :)

“Mrs”
Reviewed 15 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

What can I say about this gem , other than beautiful. Fell in love with it as soon as we walked through the gates. This is not a holiday let, it is a home and as such was really well equipped. Not 6 of everything and threadbare sheets. Well stocked kitchen, lovely bedding and towels. Couldn't fault it. The views from the bedrooms stunning, the pool and BBQ area a delight, and the games room a bonus. Didn't want to leave.

“Heaven on Earth”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We fell in love the minute we opened the gate. This charming home offers an in ground pool, well furnished living area, games room and lots of outdoor seating.
We spent lazy days in and around the pool and beautiful evenings enjoying dinner on the bbq under the stars. Centrally located for access to Viseu (we loved) Coimbra (university city) and day trips to the coast and Duoro Vally.
Highly recommend this lovely home.

“Gorgeous house in a beautiful peaceful setting”
Reviewed 1 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed for a week in May and had a fantastic time; the house is beautiful in an idyllic setting-so tranquil and peaceful. The house is tastefully furnished and equipped, making it feel more like a dream holiday home than a holiday rental! We made good use of the pool (gorgeous) and the BBQ (tasty local steaks!). We explored the surrounding area a little, we drove down to Coimbra and went to Quinta da Conchada but mainly spent our time relaxing and unwinding. My abiding memory will be reading my book by the pool where the only sounds to be heard were the bees buzzing and the birds singing. This is a really special place.

“Quiet and pretty house”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Casa do Limao is very pretty and comfortable, with everything needed available (also a washing-machine which I think is not mentioned in the house description) and in a very quiet neighbourhood. We appreciated a lot the closed courtyard where we ate everyday.
Only one thing to prevent us from concluding that all was absolutely perfect: a petrol smell just in front of the entrance door, which enters the living-room when the door is open. Marta provided us with very kind and useful indications before our arrival. A very nice place to be recommended.

Thank you for your lovely review Nadine - I know from your emails that you enjoyed your break at Casa do Limao! I am fairly sure that the petrol smell has now gone, as it was a treatment for the stone work that was applied a couple of weeks before your visit, but hope that it didn't affect your stay too much - it sounds as though you were able to make great use of the courtyard and alfresco dining and relaxation opportunities that it offers. You would be most welcome to stay again in the future! Kind regards, Marta
