Make a holiday rental in Leiria, Portugal your home away from home

Leiria holiday rentals are set in and around a city in Central Portugal. It’s a location known for its history, with a number of important monuments, while the surrounding countryside is also attractive, and the Atlantic Coast can be reached within half an hour in the car.

Things to do in Leiria, Portugal

One of the must-see landmarks close to self-catering holiday accommodation in Leiria is the castle, which dates to the 12th Century. In the subsequent centuries it was transformed into a palace, and today you can climb the walls and towers to gain impressive views of the city and countryside beyond it. Elsewhere you can visit a host of churches, including the impressive 16th Century Gothic cathedral. There are also plenty of visitor attractions to see in Leiria – The Moinho de Papel is among the most recent – it’s based around a paper mill from the 1440s. Elsewhere you’ll find the Museum of the Moving Image, which was established to commemorate 100 years of cinema in Portugal and features a range of exhibits.

Just 20 minutes south of self-catering accommodation in Leiria is the small town of Batalha, which is home to a UNESCO World Heritage Site – the renowned Batalha Monastery. Construction on this magnificent building began in the late-14th Century, and it’s considered to be one of the foremost examples of late-Gothic architecture, known for its highly ornate decoration.

Alternatively the beach is just half an hour in the car from Leiria self-catering villas. One of the best can be found on the waterfront of the town, Paredes da Vitoria, which offers a large expanse of golden sand, complemented by a range of amenities and featuring remarkably shallow waters.

There were 10 of us in total 8 adults and 2 children and we fitted comfortably in the villa. The heated pool was fantastic as it meant we could go in the pool all day every day. Carlos (the owner) was incredibly helpful and always available when needed. The supermarket was a 10 minute drive and had everything we needed. There were inflatables for the pool at the villa which the little ones were really pleased with. Little ones also loved the fact they could get cbeebies. The pool gate was fab as meant we could keep the children in the shallow end although my 5 year old could stand up in just over half the length of the pool which was great. Amazing views,amazing villa, amazing communication with owner. Thank you Carlos!

It was really lovely to have a range of areas to sit, relax and eat in. All of the bedrooms were large and opened on to the pool so everyone felt that they had a luxurious room. We were a party of six adults and two children (ages 1 & 2.5yrs) and it was brilliant having a little play area as well as a stair guard to take the stress levels down. Walking to the lagoon every day was a nice chance to get out and was close enough to take pushchairs and sometimes even the bikes that were there. Andrea met us when we arrived and was fabulous at giving us the right amount of info to make the most of the villa and the surrounding area.
