Arganil, Coimbra District, Portugal

A newly built river beach is now open at Folques 3kms away and the main district town o0f Arganil is 7kms away with shops, restaurants, banks etc. Coja is a pretty market town and is 7kms away, there is a lovely river beach here where you can swim or just relax by the water. If you want to see more fantastic views or find snow in the winter then the Serra de Estrela is approx. 1hrs drive from Bocado.
For anyone wanting a peaceful holiday to recharge the batteries this is the place to come!

I moved to Portugal 16 years ago after falling in love with the area in which I now live, a cross between the Yorkshire Dales, Lake District and parts of Scotland but with sun! I live in one of the properties that I have renovated with my Portuguese partner and speak fluent Portuguese. I enjoy renovating old properties and now own several houses in the area which I rent out for holidays. All my properties are renovated sympathetically with many of the old Portuguese features kept as they were but adding the comfort and facilities enjoyed by todays modern standards. When on my own holidays I like to spend time in places with character and charm and aim to do the same with my own properties. If you enjoy beautiful countryside and lazy days then this area is definitely worth a visit!
