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.

The house is really clean, well equipped and beautifully located. Although the house is walking distance to the beach, the pool at the house is absolutely amazing. One of the great perks of the property that I personally enjoyed, was having a gym. Overall I would recommend this vacation home for anyone, a couple, family or friends gateaway. I am really looking forward to go back there sometime soon!

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      We were a party of 4 retired adults. The house is semi-detached and well situated above the ocean, the views and sunsets really lovely. One can hear the waves crashing onto the shore, very soothing. We visited in winter (mid February) so the rain did interupt at times. Nevertheless there is so much sight seeing to be done in the vacinity, so not a problem. It is a bit of a walk down steps to the beach below, coming back up slightly more strenuous... the beach is lovely and the surrounding clifs amazing. The central heating worked well so we were comfortable. The house is very clean and tastefully furnished. Because we were home most evenings the lack of English TV and finding them on a satelite system with 700 international channels was frustrating. We could not stream from our computer as the WiFi unfortunately was "less than slow" and at times practically non-existant!! I suppose in summer it would be totally different as there would be so much more to do outdoors. There is a small selection of dvd's and a ton of music cd's. The BBQ area is well appointed and would be fabulous in summer. João visited on the first afternoon to ensure we understood everything. Nazare is 10 km away with a wonderful promenade area, with abundant restuarants. Wonderful clean long sandy beach and the vibe good, even in winter. Overall the stay was very pleasant. Robert, as feedback, you could do with a few more dinner forks as there were only 2 normal sized ones and 4 rather small ones. We also wanted to make a casserole in the oven which needed a lid. You only have one large lasagne dish. The broom, had no handle so struggled to sweep... Otherwise, the kitchen has every thing that is needed. Would highly recommend this accomodation.

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.
