Casal de Ermio offers easy access to a wide range of leisure pursuits including kayaking, fishing, hill walking, horseriding, go karting and a range of other tourist activities. Casal de Ermio is a ten minute drive from the town of Lousa which is based at the foothills of the Serra Lousa providing excellent walking and a host of interesting Schist villages. Lousa has a wide variety of shops and supermarkets,restaurants, cafes, takeaways, a market, two museums, a castle with an excellent restaurant and river beach. Less than half an hour away is the beautiful city of Coimbra on the magnificent river Mondego. Coimbra offers boat trips, historical sites and fado entertainment in several restaurants and cafes.

Fun Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

A return visit for us. A fantastic area for mountain biking and a friendly village to stay in. Spend time exploring the local area or stay close to the farmhouse, where you can watch the river go by at the cafe and even take a swim. The house is big enough for friends or two families with great courtyard and BBQ area for outside dining. Highly recommended by us for anyone who loves the outdoors and getting away from it all.

Excellent place to stay near Coimbra

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in the house as a family of 11 for a week. The house was gorgeous, beautifully kept and well kitted out with everything that we needed and more than enough room. It was very hot while we were there & the pool was a great bonus. It was cleaned every other day and really made our stay. The house is in a lovely town with a lively river beach & cafe & is close to great towns, shops & of course to Coimbra. Spent a day kayaking down the mondego. The kids all got to ride bikes and go exploring in the hills. Overall a great place for a holiday and a truely lovely house to be able to stay in. Thank you to Patrick the owner, we had a great holiday with lots of happy memories.

Fabulous House for a family

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in the house for a week and it was absolutely fantastic. It had everything we needed plus more.

The pool was amazing, we were all in it at every opportunity.

My brothers loved the table tennis table. We also made use of the BBQ for an evening with friends and the courtyard areas offered ample seating and space for us to entertain our guests.

The location was quiet which we preferred and it was handy for everywhere we wanted to visit.

The owners are really helpful with any queries.

We would definitely return to use this house again if we were visiting the area again.

Fantastic 5 star home

  • 5 of 5

This property is a gem. Lots of space, fun things to do and in a quiet location. Central to many great walks or road and MTB rides if that takes your fancy. Or hide away and relax by the river. The local cafe is welcoming and friendly, we started and ended each day there.

We would highly recommend it to groups of friends or families. Have fun together, relax and re-charge. We will be back.

Very beautiful house, well maintained, spacious !

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful house with a lot of space, even with a big family or friends. We appreciated the big swimming pool with the transats. A lot of things to do around the place to combine nature and culture. Very good relations with the manager and the owner. We would recommend this property !!!

Follow directions from Coimbra for Lousa then at Foz de Arouce take the road for Casal de Ermio.

The nearby countryside is lovely with a river beach 250 metres from the house. Lousa is a superb small town with all the facilities you would want - good restaurants, bars, a wonderful market, evocative buildings.

Casal de Ermio is situation roughly half way between Lisbon and Porto and is well served by a number of airlines ( TAP, Easyjet, Ryannair and BA). Flexible changeover dates are available.
