Rua da Capela, 13 - Rendufas da Estrada
Casa das Rendufas is 17 km from Fátima, Ourém, Tomar and Torre Novas. Golegã, known for its equestrian tradition, and Almorol Castle are also around 17 km away.
Only the occasional chiming of bells from the chapel next door disturbs the peace at this tranquil rural hideaway. Perched prettily at the top of a narrow village street overlooking olive groves, fig trees and mountains, the imposing whitewashed house combines traditional style with great comfort. Light, airy bedrooms filled with antiques are divided between the main building, an annexe, a converted barn and a studio cottage. All have super mattresses and simple decor; choose between a cosy, beamed room with a porthole window, sleeping on a mezzanine in the rustic studio, or in a wonderful wooden sleigh bed. Immaculate bathrooms with slick fittings firmly belong to the 21st-century. A lovely continental breakfast including delicious fig confit made at the Casa, is offered at a couple of tables in the elegant dining room, but if you'd rather self-cater, the barn and studio both have little kitchenettes. Outside, there's a sparkling pool surrounded by ancient olive trees.
The thoughtful owner is full of inspired suggestions for exploring the local area; among the highlights are the medieval castles at Tomar and Ourém.
