Make a holiday apartment in Ovar your home away from home

Towards the western reaches of Portugal, along its central coastline lies a region that is not on the itineraries of most of the country’s tourists; Aveiro. This locale is however, well worth a visit as it is home to several beautiful monuments and has abundant flora and fauna. One of the sixteen municipalities in Aveiro is Ovar and in this tranquil corner tourists can find luxurious holiday homes in which to put up. HomeAway offers visitors to this part of Portugal lovely holiday apartments in Ovar that are near the sea and give stunning views. Most of them are in quiet, unspoilt villages where holidaymakers can enjoy the peace and quiet they escaped from the cities to find. The apartments come in different sizes to suit different groups and needs of travellers. Also among the Ovar holiday rentals are spacious villas, some of which have private pools and tennis courts.

Things to do

-Nature: Aveiro visitors who would like to be one with nature need to spare an hour or two to visit the Mata Nacional do Bussaco, one of the oldest forests in the country. There are a number of trails here that visitors can stroll along, savouring the shade of the trees that comes in handy in the 30+ temperatures of summer. There is a sweet silence about this place that tourists will love and there are several places where romantic couples or families can set up for a picnic.

-Monuments: One of the must-visit places in this area is the Palace of Bussaco, a majestic structure whose facade is laden with arches and beautiful, intricate patterns. Romantic couples will enjoy the chance to take leisurely walks through the beautiful gardens and woods surrounding the palace which lead up to a hill with excellent views. Another monument visitors will want to see is the lighthouse in Praia da Barra, which is the oldest in Portugal.

-Tour of Aveiro city: Tourists spending time in Ovar holiday apartments and villas will want to take time to wander through the streets of what is known as Portugal’s version of Venice. It earns this name thanks to the canal that flows through the city which is dotted with brightly decorated boats and bordered by uniquely designed houses. Visitors should take time to visit the city’s acclaimed traditional fish market as well. After traipsing about for hours, they’ll also want to relax in the chic cafes, sipping coffee and nibbling on ovos moles, a sweet local delicacy.

-Beaches: Being close to the sea, visitors will no doubt find picturesque beaches from which to enjoy the abundant sunshine. Apart from the Praia da Barra, holidaymakers can also enjoy sun and sand at the Praia da Costa Nova. Plenty of water sport facilities are available here.

-Food and drink: Not far from their holiday homes in Ovar visitors will find celebrated eateries where they can gouge themselves on traditional Portuguese specialities. At the popular Oxala’ holidaymakers can choose from a variety of seafood dishes, helped down with a good selection of vintage wines. The service here is spot-on. O Angelo is a great place for that family dinner with its cosy, uncrowded atmosphere.

Weather in Ovar

Aveiro’s temperate Mediterranean climate makes holidaying here an absolute joy. Those who are planning to make reservations in Ovar holiday rentals in the usual summer months can expect plenty of sunshine though average highs usually remain at 25°C. Rainfall during this time is almost unheard of. But in the succeeding months, as autumn gives way to winter, rainfall averages of over 150mm are the norm. However, even at its coldest, winter temperatures remain above the 13°C mark.

Travel to Ovar

Seeing that this region borders Porto, it only makes sense for visitors coming from outside Portugal to use the Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport. This is one of the country’s busiest airports, receiving direct flights from most European cities as well as from other destinations beyond the continent. From Porto visitors can get to their holiday homes in Ovar by a two and a half-hour bus ride. This journey should cost no more than 10 Euros. Even cheaper is the urban train which costs €3 and takes about an hour less.

Amazing house, beautifully renovated.

5 of 5
We rented the first floor of this house for 8 days. The house is beautiful and has everything you could want. The hosts, Margarida and Mercedes are lovely and very helpful. Lots of outdoor space with seating and BBQ and a great pool. The location is great, just a short walk from shops, bars and restaurants and well positioned for visiting Porto, Aveiro and many other places.
