Make a holiday rental home or villa in Santarem, Portugal your home away from home

The Santarem region of Portugal lies inland from the Costa de Lisbon and the Costa do Estoril. A rarely explored region, Santarem is a region of real charm and solitude, where visitors are rewarded with a chance to explore the heart of Portugal, without tourist traps and large crowds.

Things to do in Santarem, Portugal

No other region of Portugal has so many historic monuments of such importance. The whole region is steeped in history, from the monuments of the Knights Templar to dinosaur footprints in the rocks. Soaring cathedral spires dominate the skyline, and there are more castles, historic caves and elegant villas in Santarem than you could possibly explore in a single trip.

The open countryside is a joy to explore too. There are numerous walking, horse riding and mountain biking trails leading throughout the region, allowing you to truly explore local nature, as well as stumble across a variety of sensational historic and natural attractions, such is the density of attractions in the Santarem region. Fishing also thrives on the many rivers that carve the countryside, and the river beaches provide beautiful spots on which to relax in the midday sun, take a refreshing dip and enjoy a picnic of the finest local produce.

Food is very important in the region, and the slopes and plains of the region are covered in vineyards and farms. Each season brings with it new crops and delicacies, which, in turn, cause huge celebrations, festivals and fairs to be held. Some festivals last through the night during the summer months, and are excellent fun to join in with.

Places to visit on holiday in Santarem, Portugal

The city of Santarem itself is one of the earliest settlements in the region. Sitting high above the River Tagus, Santarem has a huge amount to tempt visitors, from the spectacular rose windows of Gaca Church to the elaborate tomb of Duarte de Meneses. The huge, 10 day festival in June is a fantastic time to be staying in Santarem, Portugal.

Tomar is a charming city of twisting medieval streets, the majority of which look as if they have come straight from a chocolate box lid from Switzerland! The history of the Knights Templar is strongly intertwined with the town, and there are several spectacular monuments to explore. The Castle of Tomar is especially impressive, but it is the Convent of Christ that really draws the crowds.

The quaint fishing village of Ericeira is a charming place to stay, especially during the summer months, when the cafes and beach restaurants spill out onto the pavements and the long, sandy beach are lightly covered in bronzed sunbathers. Famous for the fantastic lobster caught here, Ericeira is a real favourite with local holiday makers looking to enjoy the best of the Santarem coast.

Peace,tranquillity and relaxation

5 of 5
My husband and i stayed here for 5 days. The photos do not do this place justice. The farm was so clean and our host was beyond helpful. The garden was full of fruits including oranges,pears,mangoes and best of all the fig tree. The privacy was amazing and it was like being on our own island. Shops are a 2 minuet walk away and there is bikes at the property that you can use. I honestly could not recommended this propery enough. A true taste of heaven. We cant wait to come again and have a barbecue by the pool side. Thanks so much for making our experience so special.

Lovely family holiday

5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in this home from home villa. It truly felt liked staying at a friend's house, rather than a rental. We couldn't have asked for a better host in Joao. A lovely, friendly man who truly wants you to have the best experience in his country. The villa was spacious and offered privacy for each family. Incredible well stocked and very clean. The pool was lovely (albeit quite cold sometimes) and the gardens well tended. We enjoyed many days out and would recommend Sintra, Obidos, Palmela and of course Lisbon itself. Thank you Joao for helping to make our holiday such an enjoyable one.
