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.

Travel to Amoreira

Most of Amoreira’s visitors coming from outside Portugal fly into the country via the Lisbon Airport. Direct flights to Lisbon Airport are available from most any major European city both by low-cost carrier and mainstream airlines. 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.

We had a super holiday relaxing, walking and eating out. The house is set in a beautifully kept private development, which is gated, the only gated condominium on the resort. After reading previous reviews, the house fully lived up to all expectations - the furnishing and decoration were immaculate. I am glad to say the weather was perfect for the time of year (last 2 weeks of September, first 2 weeks of October). There was sunshine everyday for four weeks and the temperature was between 21 and 25 degrees. The owners had provided a lovely Welcome Pack, which after a late flight was much appreciated, as we arrived after midnight and also then for breakfast in the morning. It was the first time I've slept in a four poster bed and it was very comfortable. The sun area on the upper terrace outside the master bedroom was perfect for tanning purposes, and lunch time drinks and food. We didn't use any of the toys and games provided, although I did fancy trying the bodyboards out, until I was reminded of my age and state of health! Walks along the beach at Praia del Rey were a true delight. The internet was both a fast speed, reliable and easy to access. Dining out is a real pleasure in Praia del Rey and the surrounding area. The “Bible” (the book of recommendations supplied by Debbie) has numerous suggestions for where to eat and the places to visit. We can particularly recommend Gaucho's in Baleal, where they serve a superb “Steak on a Stone”. Obidos is a beautiful medieval town where the quaint cobbled streets are lined with bougainvillea. It was our favourite. We also loved Peniche which is a working fishing port with lots of fish restaurants to choose from, and Sao Martinho is a must to visit. A beautiful bay with a superb beach, and good restaurants. We went to The Shrine of Fatima, about an hour away to the North East, and I would recommend a visit, even for those of other and no religions. Be prepared for a shock. It is an eye opener. It was nothing like what we had imagined. All in all did we like the house and area? Definitely. Would we recommend it? Definitely. Will we be coming back. Definitely.

Great house, great views, great times. We did not see a lot of the traditional tourist sights (besides the surf), but it was still a great trip with seriously fun waves. We did travel to Nazare one day to witness some of the biggest surf ever ridden, which was stunning to see in person. Every meal we had in Portugal was delicious and very reasonably priced. We spent lots of time in Baleal and I would highly recommend the beaches there. We surfed out in front of the house also, but some days it was just too big (Hurricane Nicole swell), so we retreated to more protected breaks around Baleal. We also visited Obidos castle and the surrounding small enclosed fortress town, which we would highly recommend. This was the first time, but I firmly believe that it will not be the last time that we will rent this house. The location just cannot be beat and we cannot wait to return again soon. Great memories are built in houses like this.

                                                                                                We spent 2 weeks at the Pine Villa as a family of 4. The villa is extremely large and spacious with lots of outdoor space for the children to play. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything a family could possibly need, large seating area in the main living area plus additional seating in the kitchen/sun room. The pool was huge, with a safe shallow end for the children and deeper end at the opposite end of the pool. The villa is positioned about 35-40 minutes walk from the beachfront so is quite a walk (if you listen carefully, you can hear the sea). This is the second year running that we have stayed in the resort and the beachfront now has the addition of an ice cream parlour which the kids love. Praia del Rey beaches are some of the most beautiful we have ever seen and are relatively empty. Swimming though isn't recommend due to the rough waves of the Atlantic. The cleaning and maintenance company were excellent. Paula, who had overall responsibility for all of this could not do enough for us and we can't thank her enough for doing everything she could to help us to have a peaceful and relaxing holiday. The pool and gardens were also kept regularly maintained. There was only a few minor issues with the villa which didn't detract from the overall enjoyment of our stay. If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings then this is the place for you. Don't expect shops, bars etc within walking distance although there are restaurants etc at the nearby Marriott hotel and a small shop and lovely restaurant down at the beach front. A car is definitely recommended. Big supermarkets are within a 20-30 minute drive where you can stock up. Overall, would thoroughly recommend.
