The Annex is only available to rent as an addition to the main house. A cot and high chair are available upon request. The lounge has a traditional Portuguese stone floor and log fire, the bi-folding patio doors lead to the shaded pergola with dining table and outside cooking facilities and looks out at the swimming pool, Annex and paddocks. The sparkling pool (built within the old threshing circle) for your exclusive use, is located in a lovely sunny position to the rear, it is cleaned and checked daily. There are corner steps leading into the shallow end and another set of steps in the deeper end. The depth of the pool is 1.0m at its shallowest and 1.5m at its deepest, the average summer water temperature is approximately 27°c. The pergola and patios are equipped with sun loungers, table and chairs and a gas BBQ and burners for outdoor living. The back of the property is edged by cork oaks, elm oaks and pine trees. You will be surrounded by nature, finches, great-tits, blue-tits, crested-tits, woodpeckers, nuthatches, siskins, squirrels and many other birds, there are bird baths and feeders to encourage the birds into the garden. The small forest is also full of wildlife activity. The 2 meadows are fairly flat and filled with olive and fruit trees, such as orange, lemon, cherry, fig, plum, nectarine and grape vines which you are very welcome to help yourself to if the fruit is ready to eat. Minimum stay is for 3 nights, any guests staying longer than 7 nights will receive fresh bedding and towels weekly. Check out time is 10am. Check in is from 3pm, although we will endeavour to be as flexible as possible upon request. Within 1 hours drive you can visit the larger historic towns of Tomar, Coimbra and Castelo Branco. The nearest costal town is a little over 1 hours drive away. Directly from the property you can walk in the surrounding forests using the tracks and there are many other walking routes around local towns available on the internet. Sertã is a very pretty, bustling market town nestled in the hills. It has plenty of shops, supermarkets, restaurants, bars and cafes. You can enjoy a glass of wine or your dinner overlooking the river which flows through the town. The local wine, beer and food is good value, fresh and locally sourced. It has a tourist centre, chemists with English speaking pharmacists, a library with an English section and internet access and a sports centre boasting both indoor and outdoor swimming pools. There is also a small renovated 1930s cinema. Around the area are many beautiful river beaches, which are sections of river dammed off to provide safe swimming. They are provided by the councils, free to use and most of them contain changing, shower and toilet facilities and an on-site restaurant/cafe/bar. During the summer there are many local music, culture and food/drink festivals in Sertã and surrounding towns. There are weekly markets in all local towns.
