Happy Friday, Escapists! This stone cottage in Portugal may look rustic from the outside, but the interior has been renovated to a beautiful standard. Next to a beautiful river and in a gorgeous area of the country.
I love the natural finishes in the interior – it feels like a perfect getaway. I can imagine a week or two with family in the summer here, enjoying fishing, maybe kayaking on the river and barbacoa in the evenings outside. Long, lazy mornings sleeping in, and afternoon adventures in the surrounding areas. Seems ideal! 15 minutes away from all convenviences in Tomar or Ferreira do Zêzere, two bustling towns full of Templar history.
