Environment ✧ rolling agricultural and mountains; hiking tracks on doorstep, 10km to ridge, good river 30 mins bike but very exposed route; barrage in mountains 30mins drive; coast/beaches 1h30

Services ✧ very basic, town 10 mins

Access ✧ station and coaches 10mins drive (2h30 Porto; 4h30 Lisbon)

Notes ✧ The village itself has cobbled streets and stone walls and the envionrment is much more typically Portuguese. Opposite side of the natural park as compared Covilha. The local town is Gouveia which was the second textile town of Portugal after Covilha, it is however tiny by comparison, yet has gardens, supermarkets and a good few cafes and some resturants; and more notably unlike Covilha its suburbs are almost nonexistant. There's only a couple of daily busses, but at just 3km/15mins cycling or a quick drive is easy. The next biggest towns are Seia (25mins) and Viseu (45mins) drive but not much better, leaving Coimbra at 1h40 by train.
✦ 10Km to top of ridge

✦ Has stream frontage, although not really suitable for swimming, a filtered pool could probably be created.
✦ 3000m2 of garden/veg land
