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.

Those who would prefer cooler climate while still having enough sunshine to bask in should bring forward their holiday to somewhere between April and May as temperatures are 20-24°C then.

Despite our late arrival due to a long wait for our hire cars at Lisbon airport, we received a very warm welcome from Andrea and Martin, who were so helpful advising us of places to visit, eat and shop. The villa is extremely well equipped, the owners have thought of absolutely everything which made our visit so comfortable. Even visits to the beach were catered for with kayaks, towels, chairs, windbreak, small tent, cool box and importantly for our 3 year old buckets and spades. The pool was a real bonus and to be honest we found it difficult to drag ourselves away from the villa. The welcome pack provided was indeed very welcome especially the cold 'superbok' beers. The weather was fabulous helping to make this a truly exceptional two weeks in a truly exceptional property. We would love to return and highly recommend a visit.

Directions to find the apartment were clear & easy to follow , Alison the manager was very helpful and provided us with a lot of interesting information about the area. We both enjoyed a lovely stay at Chris & Carole's apartment and hope to return again in 2017. Thank you.

There is a kitchen, living area, a double bedroom and bathroom on the first floor. The view from the first floor balcony is good but the lagoon view from the roof terrace is even better. The house has no proper drive but car parking in the turning circle presented no problems. The swimming pool is a reasonable size but was quite cold (in early September).The pool area is overlooked by one neighbour's window and could be overlooked if the other neighbour looked over the wall. We found it gave the impression of seclusion. Strangely there was no door access immediately by the pool area from the house and the main door had to be used on the other side, so we felt we had to lock the house each time. There are no shops or restaurants within 3 km of the property. There is a good but unlit path that follows the road alongside the lagoon to Foz beach. There are some cafes and restaurants at the Foz beach area, some are better than others. We didn't explore Foz do Arelha town itself. The nearest supermarkets are on the outskirts of Caldas da Rainha, a 15 minute drive away. Recommended places to visit are Obidos walled town (scary), Buddha Eden sculpture garden (quirky), Peniche and Baleal, Nazare (O Sitio). We will return to the area again.
