Villa overview - owner's description

River Island, Luxury Waterfront Villa, private pool in walled courtyard, Boat, Kayak
On An Island In Warm, Clear River, 6 Mins Walk To River Bar On Stilts, 7 Mins Drive To Town
Sleeps 6

A dreamy slice of a watery Eden. Look around you and you might find it hard to believe you are in Europe, never mind just a two-hour flight from grey skies and rain-soaked streets.

The giant 'tropical' pool, the only one of its kind in Portugal, is made from and surrounded by white sand. It even has a beach, which children adore, and which helps warm the water, as it faces the sun.

Or try wild swimming in the tree-lined river. We have a 200-mtr stretch of calm water, about 1.2 mtrs deep, not as warm as the pool but still very pleasant, and full of little fish. If you stay still they will come and nibble at your skin – a recognised spa therapy! You might spot a kingfisher while swimming downstream to the river bar (open May – Oct), which as well as serving great coffees offers snacks, a diving platform and, children’s paddling pool; or you could paddle down in the wooden rowing boat or kayak; or just walk - it takes only 6 mins.

Spoil yourself with professional visiting masseuse service

Not far from the medieval university city of Coimbra and the Silver Coast (Costa de Prata)

"A little bit of island paradise" We had stayed previously at one of Heidi & Jamess other properties and when they said this one was better we were skeptical but they were right. Beautiful house, fantastic setting, amazing pool and all made truly perfect by Heidi, James and their family - the perfect hosts. The area we can also recommend for climate, scenery, sightseeing and water based fun. Our only other concern was being near the river there may be insects but we need not have worried as we had no bother at all. We had a beautiful week and will return soon.
