Things to do in Viseu Region, Portugal

During your stay at a Viseu Region holiday rental it would be well worth exploring the region’s capital. Viseu is renowned for its history, and sits on a hilltop. At the historic centre you’ll be able to explore a tangle of narrow, cobbled alleys lined with attractive, centuries-old buildings. The city is known for its Renaissance and Baroque culture, with a host of impressive examples to be seen throughout Viseu. You’ll also be able to find portions of the original city walls – the city gate Porta do Soar de Cima dates to the 1400s. And one of the most essential sights in the city is the Se Cathedral, which boasts Gothic and Romanesque elements. If you’d like to find out more about Viseu’s past then you’ll find interesting museums at Casa Almeida Moreira and Grao Vasco, which is a 16th Century Episcopal Palace.

The countryside surrounding Viseu Region holiday villas is known for its wine production. If you travel south by road from Viseu to Nelas you’ll encounter some beautiful scenery, with hills and valleys covered with vineyards. Meanwhile about 45 minutes to the east is the city of Guarda, which is also very attractive. Here you can find the spectacular cathedral, which dates to the late-14th Century. Elsewhere there’s the keep of Gaurda castle, which sits atop a hill above the city and dates to the 1100s.

It is extremely spacious and it has a well-equipped kitchen. The garden is delightful with a long vine clad pergola and numerous productive fruit trees. There is a wonderful selection of places to sit and have meals outside, either up by the pool or on various lawns. The nearest supermarket is about 20 minutes away and we drove to Porto and the Douro vineyards (both about an hour and a half away in opposite directions from the house. ) Alexandre is a wonderful host giving us a tour of the house, recommendations for eating and visiting, and a selection of port and biscuits on arrival. We really did not want to leave and felt very relaxed and content in this beautiful location. Highly recommended for large groups and families.

There were some local items for us to try and there was someone nearby to help if we needed it. We loved the pool which was very welcome on the hot days and we were also grateful for the shade provided by the barn. We tried some local restaurants and also did some of our own meals which we ate outside. We visited Coimbra and also Batalha, a favourite from a previous trip, mixing these long trips with some local places. Our daughter joined us for a few days and we were able to visit Porto when we collected her from the airport. We would like to thank Marta for her directions and information about the area. If you like peace and quiet in a very non-touristy area, then this is for you!
