Make a holiday villa in Nadadouro your home away from home

There are few places in Portugal, or indeed Europe, that combine a rich heritage, natural beauty and beautiful weather like the northern Portugal municipality of Leiria. Visitors to this locale will enjoy abundant sunshine as they bask on the golden sands of the beaches. As they stray from their Nadadouro holiday homes, visitors will be able to find majestic castles and other ancient monuments. They will also find a lovely selection of restaurants and bars where they can seek refreshment. The Nadadouro holiday rentals offered by HomeAway mostly consist of luxurious villas which yield spectacular views over the Atlantic. Some of these come with extras such as heated pools and satellite/cable TV. Dishes and clothes should not be a problem with a washing machine and dishwasher available in most of the houses. A number of the Nadadouro holiday villas are situated next to golf courses, theme parks and other places of amusement.

Things to do

-Beaches: Leiria has excellent beaches such as the Praia do Pedrogao which offer the holidaymaker miles of soft golden sands for leisurely promenades. And when they want to put their feet up, visitors can stop at any one of several beachside restaurants and grab a cocktail to sip as they watch the waves crash ashore. Visits to the Berlangas Islands, not too far from the coast, are also recommended.

-Food and drink: Beachside restaurants offer not just smashing frigid cocktails to keep the summer heat at bay, they present holidaymakers with an array of repasts made from fresh fish. Like any other Portuguese eatery worth its salt, the establishments here offer the popular Leitao da Boavista. If they scour the environs of their Nadadouro holiday rentals visitors will inevitably find a shop where they can buy freshly baked local pastries.

-Castles: The Castle of Leiria is one of the symbols of this city. It is only a few minute’s walk from the city centre which means those staying Nadadouro holiday villas and apartments won’t have to travel too far. And when they get there they’ll be entranced by what they see; one of Portugal’s most beautiful castles. Not only has this structure been well preserved over the years, it has an amazing collection of artefacts in it, including medieval weapons.

-Cultural events: Leiria is a place brimming with culture. Among the events hosted here is the annual festival of music held in the Church of Saint Peter, not far from the Castle of Leiria. Live musical and theatrical performances can be caught at the Miguel Franco or José Lucio da Silva theatres. For a dose of Leiria’s café culture, visitors should pay a visit to the city square and those looking for bargain antiques should make a point of attending one of the monthly antiques markets.

This will remain one of our most memorable European Holidays.

We know from a lifetime experience of overseas travel that pictures can be deceiving. In the case of property ID 478277, the pictures of the accommodation do not quite serve justice. The Villa was far more than we expected. The the home was absolutely magnificent. Beautifully maintained, cleaned and furnished. All the equipment was modern and worked well. Stunning patio with swimming pool, protected from the wind. The Home is in the Village of Atalaia on the outskirts of Lourinhã, and was simply a breath of fresh air. The local people, not may of whom spoke English, where very warm and friendly and made us feel very welcome. The local beach a few hundred meters from the Villa was sensational. Not a long drive away north up the coast we found more beautiful beaches, Pubs and Restaurants. The most interesting part of our stay was to find how cheap the local prices were for Wine, Beer and of course food. A really good bottle of White wine from the Grocer was Euro 1.50. Mind boggling. We loved every minute our visit and will certainly pass this information on to all our friends in South Africa.
