Casa Lagares in Beira Litoral, central Portugal, makes a perfect holiday home for those seeking beautiful countryside off the tourist trail but within easy reach of sea, mountains and lots of places of interest.

This pretty, rustic house nestles among pine forests between the white sandy beaches of the Atlantic and the high peaks of the Serra da Estrela mountains. The house is located on the edge of the sleepy hamlet of Lagares where families rear animals and tend their fruit and olive groves much as they’ve done for centuries. Beira Litoral is the real Portugal - an area of outstanding natural beauty only 35 minutes from the historic university city of Coimbra and an easy drive from Porto (1 hour 45 minutes) and Lisbon (2 hours 30 minutes.).

Privately owned and sympathetically renovated Casa Lagares boasts glorious views of forests, hills and mountains from every room. It combines the charms of a traditional Portuguese house with all creature comforts.

Thinking of Buying
in Portugal?

FelipeMeet our friend, builder Filipe Francisco who renovated Casa Lagares. There are many properties for sale, and it's often cheaper to renovate an old house than buy a new one - especially if you are buying a new one via an estate agent. Portugal properties go at bargain prices compared with Spain and France. Why not spend a week looking, and stay at Casa Lagares rather than a hotel? We'll put you in touch with Filipe, who will show you the ropes and lots of properties.
