Located in the central part of Portugal, the municipality of Lousa, is part of the old district of Coimbra (the old Capital of Portugal). The house is located in a typical rural village, quiet with friendly people and places to walk along the river or in the woods. The ambience and spaces of the house invite to relax, reading to contemplation or just idleness. Coimbra city is 30mins away. There are gorgeous historic walking trails near the home such as 'Aldeia de Gondrama' and there is the must-see Lousa Castle.
