Things to do

-Medieval buildings: Leiria is known for being home to a number of grand, well-preserved castles, fortresses and churches. The Fortaleza de Peniche was once an important military installation for the Portuguese. It fell into disuse after the end of the wars and was recently converted into a museum containing many interesting exhibits accompanied by information on Portugal’s eventful history.

-Ancient churches: Medieval churches form a huge part of Leiria’s heritage and the 17th century Igreja da Misericordia is one of them. The ceiling of this church is its key attraction as it is the canvas on which several paintings representing scenes from the New Testament were done by leading artists of that era. There are two monasteries in this part of central Portugal occupants of Amoreira holiday homes will also want to visit; the Mosteiro da Batalha and the Mosteiro de Alcobaca.

-Beaches: Not far from Amoreira is the fishing village of Peniche which leads to the sea. Apart from admiring the fishermen go about their trade in the traditional way, visitors can make the most of the sun and sand on beaches such as the Praia do Pedrogao. As they admire the sea views and promenade the stretches of soft sand, visitors can also savour fresh fish dishes from seaside eateries.

-Berlengas: While still in Peniche visitors will want to take a tour of the Berlengas Archipelago. It makes for an exciting piece of hiking and the views these masses of rock offer are second to none. There are also caves to be explored. Nature lovers and shutterbugs will not be in a hurry to leave.

-Food and drink: Tourists staying in Amoreira holiday rentals looking for a place to enjoy a meal in an intimate, romantic atmosphere should consider an evening in the aptly named Malagueta Afrodisiaca. Among the items on this restaurant’s extensive menu are vegetarian specialities. And apart from Portuguese cuisine, guests can taste the flavours from many other countries including Oriental and South American dishes.

Weather in Amoreira

This locale enjoys the excellent temperate conditions associated with Mediterranean areas. Those planning on making reservations for Amoreira holiday homes in summer should expect temperatures averaging between 27 and 35°C. Those who choose to arrive for their holidays a bit earlier should prepare for rainy weather as April and May experience plenty of rainfall. Summer visitors should have no such worries as Leiria is hot and dry between June and August. Winters are relatively mild with temperatures hovering between 15 and 7°C.

Most of Amoreira’s visitors coming from outside Portugal fly into the country via the Lisbon Airport.

From here visitors can travel to Leiria by road on the A8 via long distance buses. This trip usually takes between 1 and 2 hours.

The villa manager is friendly & accommodating & speaks perfect english. The villa is finished to a very high standard & has all the conveniences of home & more. It is situated an easy walk to the beach or golf club. We had a few days of poor weather but there was plenty of room in the house and internet services so it didn't matter. If you are looking for a luxury home away from home this property is for you. Would highly recommend it to anyone.

Everything we could wish for had been anticipated..... welcome pack when we arrived, Debbie's 'bible' of where to go, where to eat and how to get there and fantastic facilities in the house. Internet is great and the log burner is brilliant and Debbie's personal attention to our stay was exceptional. Thank you - fantastic time in a beautiful place, we will be back.
