“Exceptional in every aspect, an outstanding villa and first class service from the estate manager"”

Together with friends (a couple and 2 young children) we have spent 2 weeks last August at Casa do Pomar. It has been a wonderful, 5-star satisfaction luxury stay.

Casa do Pomar is a very charming, comfortable and clean spacious house, with 2 large and very comfortable bedrooms, in addition to a sofa-double bed located in a nice room adjacent to a panoramic terrace. The living room is spacious enough to allow children to play and the kitchen is perfectly well equipped, with plenty of space for cooking.
There is a second terrace, next to the living room, which leads to a wonderful garden. This terrace is perfectly suitable for romantic dinners under the stars as well as sunny lunches, in addition to rest time in the provided garden-arm chairs under the trees. In the garden you will find spices like rosemary or wild mint, to add taste to your BBQs. The cottage’s surroundings are extremely quiet, to such an extent that even our children woke up very late in the morning every day!

Next to the house there is a path which leads to the “+++” of the stay:

- first of all what my friends and I called the “paradise garden”: plenty of fruit trees where all summer-long you can find mature figs, oranges and lemons (you will also find such trees uphill in an open, public field outside of the village);

- then the eco- swimming pool, a very large pool where you can both swim and play water polo (if you wish, this is just to let you imagine how spacious the pool is…), surrounded by plants, flowers, dragonflies, frogs, … The pool is totally chemicals-free and extremely clean, water is rather warm and both in the morning or late afternoon it benefits from sunshine. We spent hours in that little paradise, surrounded by beautiful nature, just listening to the birds.

In addition to all this perfect environment, the other “+++” of the stay was the estate manager: Robert, Andrew and their team took care of our stay with a lot of attention, providing very useful advices on shops, restaurants and places to visit (they also indicated to us the route to an amazingly beautiful wild ocean beach, Osso do Baleia, which was not listed in any guide, where we spent 2 wonderful afternoons).
We particularly appreciated the possibility to share conversations with Robert, who showed everyday a lot of sensibility, humor and generosity, and progressively gave us the feeling of being part of our family (we will miss him…). He also provided many additional free services that were not mentioned on the web site: free umbrellas for the beach, free games for rainy days at home as well as for the beach, etc. On the day of our departure, his team offered to us two generous bunches of grapes… I could list other gifts and careful attention that we benefited from Casa do Pomar, the stay was just fabulous and the client relationship management is absolutely exceptional!

Casa do Pomar is located in a very small village, 5 km from motorways and main roads which lead you in 30 minutes to Coimbra or Tomar, and approximately 1 hour to Batalha, Alcobaça or the beach. There is no traffic on those motorways. If you manage to wake up early, a full-day journey to Lisbon or Porto is also feasible (we did not do it as it was not the purpose of our holidays; we wanted to visit the other cultural sites). Avelar, the nearby main town (a 5 minute-drive), provides all what you need (food, cafés, etc.). If you come by car from France, the UK or Spain, Casa do Pomar is very conveniently located (2 hours from Spanish border, almost 100% motorway to reach the village).

We do 100% recommend Casa do Pomar, which really deserves a 5/5 rating!

“splendid location and great house for a perfect holiday!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

It is a real joy to spend a few weeks in this beautiful house and surroundings. And within an hour drive at most, many different outdoor activities can be done, or beautiful towns or cities can be visited.

“Great holiday in a great location”
Reviewed 7 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We had a wonderful week in Casa do Pomar. The house was excellent - clean, tastefully decorated and with all the amenities required for a good holiday. The setting is wonderful with views out onto the mountains, and was peaceful and quiet. Robert, the owner was on hand with good tips and ideas, and clearly wants to make sure his guests have a good holiday and yes we too fell in love with LBD, the dog! The swimming pool was just as beautiful in reality as it appears in the photos and was refreshing at the end of a day of sightseeing. Although in a quiet countryside setting you are near to a good road system and we had no problem finding our way around and had great times at the beach (Whale beach - excellent), rock pools and Tomar (great castle). No hesitation in recommending this property.

“A little piece of paradise”
Reviewed 23 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We were a family of four and this was our first time in Portugal. The area was beautiful, it felt remote and close to the land, but at the same time was well served by good roads. The eco pool was a high, so fresh and lovely to swim in and to sit by and watch the dragon flies! The house was very well equipped, light and airy, and a pleasure to stay in, with a well thought out garden to look over or sit in as well. Robert was a wonderful source of thoughtful suggestions, good information and ideas of what to do and where to go. We went to the beach which was an easy trip though longish trip, and it was clean and family friendly without being touristy. We took day trips out to various cities and sites and there was a lot more to do than our week allowed so we certainly hope to return. I have no hesitation in recommending this idyllic holiday spot and its gracious host.
