Make a holiday rental house, villa in North Portugal your home away from home

North Portugal includes some of the wildest regions of Portugal. Many of the oldest, most unspoilt and beautiful areas of Portugal are hidden in the relatively un-discovered region of North Portugal. Consisting of green rolling hills, dramatic river valleys, a rugged coastline and a magnificently slow pace of life, holiday accommodation in Northern Portugal brings you as close as is possible to authentic Portuguese culture and scenery, away from the huge summer crowds which grace the more famous holiday regions of Portugal.

Places to Holiday in North Portugal

Walkers, hikers and nature lovers must rent a North Portugal holiday villa near the National Park of Geres, which incorporates mountains, abundant nature and clean waterways.

The Minho Region, the oldest in Portugal, is a great place to start your exploration of North Portugal. Holiday houses here benefit from the best of Portugal, lush countryside, historic towns, empty, golden beaches and peaceful rivers.

There is an enormous wealth of things to do in Northern Portugal. Holiday houses or villa in North Portugal allow you to lounge on the often empty Atlantic beaches, walk in the endless, unspoilt countryside, fish the long stretches of rivers, lakes, reservoirs or the sea, or investigate the national monuments and towns from which the Portuguese Nation first sprung. Medieval castles, Romanesque churches and ancient cave paintings cover the area, giving a real sense of history and community.

North Portugal is a rural haven, and as such, is the perfect location for a huge range of outdoor activities. Canoeing down the Douro River, or climbing the shear gorges which it has carved from the surrounding hills are popular activities, as well as the excellent golf courses and facilities of Vidago, which keeps golf enthusiasts returning to North Portugal holiday houses each year.
