This self catering farmhouse is in a quiet location in the village of Alagoa approx. 1.5kms from the main district town of Arganil. The house is approached by a quiet lane that leads on to the apple orchards and the local vineyards of the village. There are lovely views across the countryside to Arganil and the mountains in the distance.
Activities and attractions
Arganil is the main district town and has a selection of shops, cafes, restaurants, banks, chemists etc, there are also 2 large supermarkets as well as several smaller ones. There is an infants play park and a pretty designated walk zig zagging up the hill. During the summer months there is a free show in the town square on a Saturday evening and the large 5 day annual fair is held here at the beginning of September, usually around the 7th September.
There are lots of river beaches along the Rio Alva where you can swim in the clear waters. At Sarzedo river beach, less than 2 kms, there is also a council built outdoor swimming pool. At Secarias, 2kms, and Coja, 10kms, you can hire pedaloes and canoes or just swim and relax.. Fishing is also available along the river banks you will need a licence approx. €5.
Coimbra is one of the oldest university cities in Europe and has a large and very beautiful library that is open for visits from the public. Portugal dos Pequenitos is fun for children and alduts alike with minature houses depicting different types of housing from all over Portugal.
The seaside is less than an hours drive where you have the choice of the larger sandy beach at Figueira de Foz or the smaller resort of Tocha.
During the winter the Serra de Estrela has snow on its peaks where there is skiing, it is also worth a visit for the magnificent views, approx.60kms to the start of the uphill drive.

Tranquil and rural
A beautifully reformed house, perfect for those wishing to stay in a country setting. The house itself was very comfortable, and the owner was helpful and available to attend to any questions or needs. Arganil itself isn't a very interesting town, but the area gives good access to other more interesting places nearby. My month long stay in October proved to be warm and sunny for the first 2 weeks. As the weather became wet and cool, I made good use of the wood stove in the lounge area. The house is good for a family or group of friends looking for a place which combines rural charm and modern amenities.
