Plenty of room in a quiet spot
This really was a home away. We chose Yarra’s place because we wanted to be based in a rural area for a few days and do day trips from there. This place we perfect for that, overlooking a village. The rooms are large and there’s plenty of space for some alone time. Yarra is also a character and there’s no charge for her interesting conversations. We enjoyed.
Beautiful House in a Wonderful Setting
Just back from a great stay at Yara's place. The photos and description do not do this home justice at all! First of all the size of the property is the biggest surprise and secondly the location is quite stunning. Situated on an elevated plot overlooking the village and surrounding hills and countryside, the views are breathtaking from both floors. Yara herself is a fantastic host, nothing was too much effort from borrowing a box of matches to recommendations on places to visit. As a family of four we visited the coast, Sintra and Obidos, all superb days out. Driving & navigating around the area was simple and the house is only 35/40 minutes from Lisbon airport. Highly recommended and hope to visit again one day.
Rustic, beautiful, relaxing... fantastic!
Yara's place is quite large and instantly relaxing in its simplicity -- just what we needed -- and frankly, I wish we spent more time just hanging out but we were on a bit of a busy schedule running around to various places.
The time we did stay in the home was very relaxing (not much better for me than having my morning tea while reading a book in the hammock that overlooks the sloping hillside with fruit trees).
Yara, herself, was wonderful -- there when you needed her and not when you didn't. Enjoyed speaking with her and learning about the history of the place. Would definitely stay here again if given the opportunity.
REVIEWERS NOTE: why 4 stars and not 5? Star ratings are a subjective thing and I rarely give 5 for anything -- I know others give them out like water -- my best indicator for any place is whether I'd go back or tell my friends -- and this is a place I definitely would go to again and have already shared with others.
Great location and wonderful host.
A very warm welcome from the lovely Yara and our stay was off to a great start. Her recommendations of where to visit were spot on and saved us from making false starts. The nearby beaches are fabulous and great for walking. It's a windy coast and surfers abound so there's something to watch while you walk.
The house served us well and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Attentive Yara was on hand if required. A gas bottle change for the cooker was all that came up. Great to be able to pick fruit in the orchard: it reminded us of our years in Spain.
So, nice house, good location, lovely host, what's not to like? Highly recommended.
It was a pleasure to have you both!
You took such good care of my place.
Une maison incroyable
Un immense coup de cœur pour cette grande maison. Même si la propriétaire avait fermé les chambre que nous occupions pas (un peu dommage) nous avions l’impression de vivre dans un château. La vue sur le village et sur région depuis le 1er étage était splendide. Nous avons également profité du beau jardin et cueilli les figues qui nous étaient offertes. Notre anglais misérable ne nous a pas permis de parler beaucoup avec la propriétaire, Yaya, mais nous avons apprécié sa présence discrète. Et cette région est si belle que nous reviendrons certainement...
