Later in life we worked in social care.With our savings we decided to embark on a new,exciting adventure in Portugal.Mark & I moved to the beautiful central region of Portugal in 2015. We began renovating an old farm ,completing Casa Lerryn in 2016.The Portuguese life is slow,friendly and embraces fresh food,excellent wine and wonderful,welcoming locals.

Lerryn Bry purchased this house in 2010

Why Lerryn Bry chose World

Sertá is an undiscovered region,offering a retreat from the hustle and bustle of busy lives.

Rejuvenate and unwind. Casa Lerryn feels miles away from anywhere,nestling in a valley,surrounded by woodland and olive groves,yet is only a 3 minute drive to the town of Sertá.

Our town dates back to roman times,with old ancient cobbled streets,as well as modern shops ,banks,libary and health centre.

Sertá has two rivers running through it,offering scenic walks and relaxed bars where you can sit for hours admiring the views.

Sertá has most facilities available,as its a regional tourist hub,as well as providing services for local commerce and industry.

The most relaxing holiday we have had in a longtime. Our 6 year old even said it was the best holiday ever! The location is just stunning and the local town has everything you need to chill out. Lerryn and Mark are the loveliest couple as well, we have made some new friends. Definitely going back again next year 😀.

Wonderful Villa set in a fabulous setting.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 2 weeks at Casa Lerryn. The location is fabulous just set outside the friendly town of Serta.

Easy to get to from Lisbon Airport with a number of great days out within easy reach, Tomar, Aviero to name just 2.

Mark and Lerryn who own the villa make sure you need for nothing whilst you are there, they are on hand to offer advice of where to go, eat and take a scenic drive, but never intrusive.

The villa is very well designed and stays very cool during the day with its thick walls and shutter that keep out the son but let through a cooling breeze.

The pool is fantastic and many an hour can be spent relaxing around the pool on the loungers provided taking in the beautiful scenery that surrounds the villa.

This villa is ideal for a relaxing getaway for couples and families.

We had a fantastically relaxing fortnight at Casa Lerryn and look forward to going back in the future.

great location with friendly and helpful owners

Peaceful valley situation, very quiet. Very nice pool although too cold for us to use it much. Fantastic log burner and BBQ to warm up on the colder days! Owners were very helpful and friendly without being at all intrusive.

Peaceful, private property with lovely pool

  • 5 of 5

Casa Lerryn is in a lovely quiet spot, and we enjoyed total privacy, with the comfort of knowing that Mark and Lerryn were next door, to deal with any problems or questions. The property is well-equipped, and we greatly enjoyed the outside terraces and pool. Lots of lovely trees and active birdlife! The property is well-located for access by road, from the north or south; and the nearest Intermarche is very close by - tho we came to prefer the home-grown Pingo Doce supermarket in town. There are lots of pretty routes to nearby river beaches, and we enjoyed going to Tomar and to Coimbra. We also visited Lousa in the mountains, and found the trail of the 'Schist Villages' which travels through the mountains. Mark and Lerryn were exceptionally kind and hospitable - nothing was too much trouble.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having Jenny and Nigel stay at Casa Lerryn. They appeared to enjoy the Serta's local amenities as well as venturing to nearby local towns and areas. We enjoyed our conversations and appreciated the great respect that they both displayed with regard to the property and features made available to them. We thank you both for your visit , hope that one day you might pass through Serta and look us up in the future and wish you both happiness and good fortune !
