Central Portugal Villa Rental Photos and Description

Five large double bedrooms, all en suite, with pool, games 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/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.

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.

Why Michelle & Gordon Young chose Central Portugal

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

What makes this villa unique

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

Peaceful relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Set in a rural area it is very quiet but a 10 minute walk away is a local village with a bank, petrol station, butcher's (useful for the bbq!), supermarket, pharmacy, and some cafes also a short car journey takes you Gios which has some restaurants and river beaches. The villa is well equipped with a pool and good sporting facilities as well as a great games room.

Great house, great area.

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we expected and a bit more: the home cinema was really a plus for children and adults when weather outside was not so good. Rooms were large and the fact that all of them were suites was great. The outside area was excellent, especially for our dog. The football ground was enjoyed by the kids. We did not use the swimming pool, of course, but it should be a 'must' in summertime.

The surrounding area is great for walking and sightseeing. I had not been in Góis for a long time and it is gorgeous. Várzea Grande/V.N. Ceira (which I did not know before) is also beautiful, and people are rather nice.

All in all, great experience. Certainly to be repeated.

Just a short walk to the nearest river beach, which has a small sandy beach and nice cafe, BBQ facilities and loos.

One of the greatest attractions of the Góis region is the abundance of places to swim in the summer months. There are so many places dotted along the river Ceira where you can find a way into the water, and everyone has their own favourite. This place really does have something to suit everyone, from secluded spots that take a bit of hunting for, to river beaches with full facilities, café-bars and lifeguards, and everything in-between.

Loads of local woods and trails to walk through, lovely 100% Portuguese village and very friendly and helpful locals!
