Casa Saramago – PD0457
Property in central Portugal
This sale is of a delightful property, one tucked away on a cobblestoned lane but only 5 minutes’ walk from the bustling centre of Gois.
With a footprint of 56m2 – accommodation includes 4 bedrooms; 3 fully tiled bathrooms and 2 kitchens – a total habitable area of 158m2. To be sold furnished, the building has been well kept and is in lovely condition. Though there is a little work remaining, mostly a revamp to personal taste, past refurbishment has been thoughtfully done, retaining many of the original features, plain walls, wooden floors and ceilings – it’s very simple, very classic and maintains the true character of the house.
Set in a quiet corner of this pretty market town, bordered by open green space, there is no garden, but there are two balconies, the upper running the length of the house and big enough to comfortably take a table and chairs, the views are terrific. If you’re looking for a holiday home it’s a perfect lock up and leave, everything you want, café/bars, restaurants, shops, a river beach, are all close by. There are festivals, both traditional and modern, sporting activities, cultural events – it’s peaceful, but with plenty going on. The major airports at Porto and Lisbon are both less than two and a half hours away, the coast is little more than an hour.
If your plans are for full time relocation the area is equally suitable. There are schools, a medical centre, a pharmacy, banks, petrol station, public transport – including a school bus service, everything you require for daily life. Access to the major road networks is good; the University City of Coimbra is 45 minutes’ drive.
The region, the Ceira Valley is stunning, a clear river, with access for swimming, tree covered hillsides – ideal for outdoor pursuits, hiking, biking; not far are small villages with markets and little cafes where you might get home cooked lunch made with local produce, you’ll certainly get a good cup of coffee – life is slower, but it isn’t dull; there are views you’ll never get tired of and you’ll never be quite sure what’s around the next corner. This is a lovely house in a quiet street in a pleasant town – no matter you have in mind that’s a combination which makes viewing worthwhile.
