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 owner couldn't have been more helpful and location worked perfectly for us. We could walk to the club house or beach or drive a short distance to local villages or main town of Peniche. We loved relazing by the large pool. Beautifully maintained gardens with so many flowers and fruit! We hope to return next year!

It is set in a quiet, beautifully maintained complex and the house itself is spacious, very tastefully furnished and well equipped. A perfect place to spend a holiday even out of season, we spent some very cosy evenings in front of the log burner in the comfortable lounge. We were very fortunate with the weather considering the time of year - temperatures reaching 22 degrees on some days. This allowed us to spend time exploring this fascinating area. Debbie's guidebook is really useful for ideas. Within about an hours drive there are numerous interesting towns, both on the coast and inland. We loved Nazare, where we watched fishermen mending their nets and women putting fish out to dry by the sea. Another favourite was Alcobaca, with its impressive monastery and excellent cafes selling delicious cakes in a beautiful setting. Obidos is a nearby town not to be missed. We enjoyed a wonderful meal in a restaurant there - unfortunately I can't remember its name but it is featured in Debbie's guidebook. Having never visted Lisbon, we were pleased to be told by Olga, the very helpful property manager, that we could get there by bus from Obidos. It was just an hours journey and well worth the trip. We had several hours to have lunch and explore the city. In all, we had a wonderful holiday and we would not hesitate in recommending this property to anyone looking for accommodation in the area.

We decided to holiday here after our Wedding on the Tuesday to give ourselves a little treat before returning to work. It exceeded our expectations! The villa was very well kept, clean and everything was easily accessible. The pool was just delightful and we spent most days lounging by the pool as it was heated and therefore very much needed in the warm weather we were lucky enough to experience. When we ventured out into the surrounding area we enjoyed dining at Cozinha D'el Rei, walking along the nearby sandy beach and lunch at the golf club. We particularly liked popping to the local butcher's and buying a huge selection of meat to cook back at the Villa on their built in BBQ. All in all, we experienced such a lovely time while staying in Villa Chloe and would definitely recommend it to anyone wishing for a relaxing break. Although we chose to relax, we noticed many activities very close by for those who choose to be slightly more active! We hope to return soon to spend a longer amount of time here. Thank you so much Sara and Richard for renting your beautiful property to us.
