This authentic house, our holiday home “Serra da Lousã”, is located in the historical centre of Lousã with a beautiful view onto the Serra da Lousã.
The house was built in the late 1930’s. We have renovated it and have converted it into comfortable accommodation.
It comprises two floors, each with a separate holiday apartment with it’s own entrance. For those who want, the two apartments can be merged to one, bigger holiday house.
Our holiday home “Serra da Lousã” …
…is named after the mountains of Lousã and has two apartments. The top apartment has space for 4 people and the lower apartment has space for 2 people. We can merge both apartments into one holiday home for 6 people.
Opposite the house is a little park, with benches where you can enjoy the outdoor living. Here you can see the morning sun rising behind the mountains and, in the evening, enjoy the sun setting over the horizon.
Lousã has a historical centre with buildings from the 16th Century and is located at the feet of the Serra da Lousã. You can wander around the town’s old buildings and restaurants, and shopping opportunities. Our house is located at one of the many walking trails in the Serra da Lousã, the “Caminhos do Xisto da Lousã”. This trail leads up through the forest from the castle of Lousã, with its river swimming pool and the hermitage of Nossa Senhora da Piedade. From here there are several hiking trails into the mountains to the slate villages like Talasnal and beyond.
The apartment “Lousã” is situated on the ground floor and is prepared for 2 people.
The apartment “Trevim” is on the first floor. It is child friendly and prepared for 4 people.
Both apartments have their own entrance. We make the beds for you so they are ready for your arrival. Both apartments have central heating. We provide the house with towels. WIFI is also provided in this house.
…have a lot to offer!
Lousã has a very old town centre, with beautiful historic buildings like the Town Hall, the church, the 16th century chapel of mercy and numerous old houses, in the traditional style of the region. Besides the historic buildings, there are lots of cosy terraces and restaurants. Near the castle is a river swimming pool and the hermitages of Our Lady of Mercy, that are both worth visiting.
The “Serra da Lousã ” offers a lot of opportunities for walking or mountain biking. The highest peak, “Alto do Trevim”, has an altitude of 1200 metres. On a clear day, you can see from this peak all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. And you can swing on a large swing near the peak with views over the valleys and beyond. Or you descend like a bird, with a paraglider. For the daredevils on the bicycle, there is the downhill trail where the world cup is also ridden.
You can visit numerous old mountain villages made of slate, where the hard and lonely mountain life is evident. And in the “Serra da Lousã” you might even spot wild animals like deer, boars and foxes.
In Lousã and in the surrounding villages there are many possibilities for swimming, both on the Praias Fluviais and in unofficial places such as the Cabril in Rio de Ceira.
The University City of Coimbra is about 25 kilometres away from Lousã. You can get here with your own transport or by bus.
You can reach the white beaches of the Silver Coast in approximately 1 hour by car.
The Torre, in the National Park “Serra da Estrela” is the highest mountain of the mainland of Portugal and is only about 96 kilometres.
By prior arrangement, we can provide a shuttle service from the airport to our holiday home in Lousã. If you want to take advantage of this, it is possible to send us an email for information and costs.
Enjoy the environment while you swing
