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.

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.

The view is glorious from the balcony and waking up each morning to the sound of the sea and overlooking the beach was our idea of heaven. A short walk across the beach for drinks at the Club House and Hotel is a must. The Townhouse itself is definitely five star, luxurious, clean and homely with a very well maintained kitchen. Customer Service is excellent and would thoroughly recommend!
