Welcome to ZororoRetreat, a relaxing haven set in the heart of central Portugal's Beira region, frequently described as the most attractive corner of this special country. Located on the borders of a traditional village in the Serra Lousa hills with the Ceira River and beach a short walk down the valley side, just 3 minutes by car is the beautiful town of Gois.
We offer luxurious accommodation to those who would benefit from time away from the stresses of everyday life.
Our 5-en suite double bedrooms are air-conditioned, with central heating and generously sized; each has a balcony with views across the valley. A large kitchen, lounge and games room are downstairs. Outside there is a good sized, gated pool, our own vineyard and private tennis/games court.
We also offer a 6th twin bedroom on the middle floor, again with ensuite bathroom and step in shower. This 6th bedroom is optional and is ideal for those with mobility issues as it reduces the need to use the stairs. The room is also ideal if you have a number of younger children, with the addition of 2 fold-up beds this room can sleep upto 4.
Zororo's location: The area around ZororoRetreat provides a wide variety of country activities, including horse riding, hill walking, nature watching, canoeing, cycling, etc, as well as a unique opportunity to see and experience the 'real' Portugal that is little altered from a century ago, in the farming communities, people and way of life of the region.
Only slightly further a field is Portugal’s old capital and university city of Coimbra, with the often deserted sand dune backed beaches of the Silver Coast beyond. The Knights Templar last European stronghold at Tomar and the Roman ruins in Conimbraga are easily reached, as is the Serra Estrella (‘mountains of the stars’) National Park.
