Date of Stay: 07 to 11 April 2019 Mark and Cece were super hosts and really made us feel at home, they suggested places to visit, local shopping and local walks. The location is very peaceful and beautiful - a great place to unwind and chill out. It was a bit too early in the year to try the pool – we were the first guests of the season, but it definitely looked inviting on the hot & sunny Spring days during our stay. We stayed in the single bedroom cottage that had everything provided for a self-catering stay and the log burner was a welcome inclusion on the chilly, early Spring nights. Coimbra is a beautiful city to visit and only around 20-30 minutes from the Casa. There are mountain retreats and river beaches all within easy reach. Mark & Cece live in the main house, together with their lovely and friendly dog – Coco. They openly encourage you to forage in their extensive herb, veggie and salad garden with everything fresh to pick. Thanks also Mark for the superb Indian curry and home made rotis on our last night. We look forward to visiting Casa de Coco again and would certainly recommend as a peaceful and beautiful place to stay in nature.

Une star : Coco... ----------------------------------------------- Claas (DE) 2018-08-11 10.0 Nice quiet place to relax with nice people and a kind dog ----------------------------------------------- Flavio (PT) - 2018-08-13 10.0 A repetir. Do bolo de chocolate, da receção e da simpatia ----------------------------------------------- Sonja (NL) - 2018-08-13 9.2 Warm and welcoming. Great holiday feeling! The owners are super hosts and very helpful e.g when we missed a serving tray or had questions. They were great with our girls. Mark is a great cook and we enjoyed a lovely BBQ meal, prepped by the owners in the garden (amazing meat, homemade salads, humus, nice wine, dessert and much more). The location and the garden are very pretty and quiet. The atmosphere super relaxed. We stayed at the two bedroom place which was simple yet had everything we needed for a family with 2 teenagers. Excellent value for money. This place is like a true vacation. Pool is small but very nice! We enjoyed a day kayak trip on the Mondego river which was excellent. Coimbra is a must see and the science museum at the university area is very nice. The owners live on the property, they have a veggie garden that you can eat from. We can recommend the place! The beds are on the small side. We missed a place to eat outside, which was after we asked about it arranged by the owners immediately. Thank you Mark and Cece! ----------------------------------------------- Carla (PT) - 2018-07-20 9.2 Simplesmente MARAVILHOSO... queremos voltar... Fomos extremamente bem recebidos pela Cece, Mark e Coco (simpáticos, educados e muito afáveis), com uma excelente receção de Boas Vindas. Adoramos a casa a piscina e o confronto. propriedade muito bem conseguida e recuperada com excelente envolvente com a natureza. para nós faltou a Televisão para ver o jogo de Portugal. ----------------------------------------------- Elzemiek Zinkstok - 4 April at 19:12 5 star Our stay at Casa de Coco was fantastic! Mark and Cece do everything in their power (and more) to make your stay truly amazing. Their place is beautiful, peaceful and rural, but super comfortable too - the perfect mix! Coco is the friendliest dog in the world (who talks instead of barks) and even if you're not a dog person, you cannot avoid loving him…! Last but not least, you MUST try Marks cooking! His curries are seriously fantastic, and don't get me started on the chocolate pie…. Whether you're vegetarian or not, he will rock your world. We came as guests and left as friends, and will definitely come again! 🙂 ----------------------------------------------- Helena (PT) - 2018-07-11 10.0 Tudo maravilhoso: o conforto, a limpeza, localização, o espaço inserido na natureza. A receção amigável e simpática da Cecile, Mark e do Côco, que nos fizeram sentir em casa. A casa muito confortável, inserida na Quinta com imenso espaço verde e com piscina. Boa localização, perto de tudo. Disponibilidade total dos anfitriões. Adorámos! ----------------------------------------------- Pieter Van Der Walt - 7 April at 08:36 Mark, Cece and Coco are great hosts. Friendly, attentive, thorough and funny! The self catering units were built and furnished with care and thought, ensuring a very comfortable stay and lovely experience. And the garden is spacious and well kept. The area they are in is perfect for a city getaway, but with Coimbra just a short drive away. We loved it so much, we are already thinking about our next visit. ----------------------------------------------- Anne Neandra - 10 May at 23:16 · Wir hatten bei Cece, Mark und Coco drei wunderschöne Tage. Wir wurden selten so herzlich in Empfang genommen. Die kleinen Wohnungen sind mit viel liebe renoviert worden. Alles sauber und gepflegt. Beim Frühstück bleibt kein Wunsch offen. Selbstgemachte Marmelade und Chutneys sowie frischer Obstsalat. Mark ist ein sehr guter Koch. Ihr müsst unbedingt das phänomenale BBQ testen (bringt viel Hunger mit � ). Und dann noch Portugals liebster Hund Coco. Trotz seiner größe fällt es kaum auf, dass er da ist. So ruhig und verschmust. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Casa de Coco ist ein wunderbarer Ort die Seele baumeln zu lassen. Wer möchte kann von dort aus die umliegende schöne Natur bewundern oder das nahe gelegene Coimbra besuchen. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder. :-)) @ Cece und Mark: Ich kann es gar nicht oft genug sagen „Danke für die schöne Zeit bei euch!“ ----------------------------------------------- We had three wonderful days with Cece, Mark and Coco. We were rarely received so warmly. The small apartments have been renovated with much love. Everything was clean and well maintained. At breakfast no wish remains open. Homemade jams and chutneys and fresh fruit salad. Mark is a very good cook. You have to absolutely test the phenomenal BBQ (brings a lot of hunger ;-)). And then Portugal's favorite dog Coco. Despite its size, it is hardly noticeable that it is there. So quiet and cuddly. We felt very comfortable. Casa de Coco is a wonderful place to unwind. If you want, you can admire the beautiful surrounding nature or visit nearby Coimbra. We will be back definitely. :-)) ----------------------------------------------- Berenice Araujo (Spain) - May 2018 10 Relajante y super encantadores sus anfitriones... Excelente todo, quedamos encantadisimos... ----------------------------------------------- Beatriz Fino Loureiro The house was amazing, the garden mesmerizing, there was even a small river behind the garden which our dog Bella and their dog Coco used as their own private pool. If you're a nature/animal lover, this is definitely THE place. CeCe and Mark are incredible hosts. They received us with a (much needed) fresh bottle of champaign and always had genuine smiles on their faces. They honestly made us feel like part of the family. Their dog Coco is a gentle giant, just as friendly as his owners. He got along very well with our dog Bella. Mark's cooking is spot on! We had the cold brunch buffet and breakfast and trust me... It was sooo worth it! The guesthouse we stayed at was as cute as it was clean and the beds were super comfortable. Even had mosquito nets to prevent us from getting bitten at night. Everything was perfect but what made us REALLY want to come back were CeCe and Mark: they are genuinely great people and love having people around. They were thoughtful and understanding and as flexible as they could be when it came to arrival times and checking out. We'll be back to Arrifana as soon as possible! 🙂
