LUXURY IN THE GREEN HEART OF THE PORTUGAL, QUIET RURAL RETREAT WITH POOL

Gois Villa Rental Photos and Description

Five large double bedrooms, all en suite, with pool, tennis court and vine yard

Welcome to the Zororo villa, 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 pool, vineyard and tennis court. Several times each week Tanaka, co-owner, normally offers a delicious 3 course meal, including our own wine.

See our website for a video tour of the villa.

Zororo's location: The area around Zororo 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.

He is a school teacher, she is a nurse. Loved our time living in Portugal but family pressures pull us back to London for now.

Kevin and Tanaka Grant purchased this villa in 2005

Having fallen in love with the region. we looked around the area for a house that had a certain 'wow' factor and found it here! Countryside location on edge of a 'real' Portuguese village.

Properly in rural Portugal, placed on the edge of a popular but modest village just a few hundred metres above the River Ceira.
