Villa from sundeck

Gois, Coimbra District, Central Portugal
This is an area for individualists. If you enjoy lager louts, noisy bars, tacky shops, rip-off restaurants, burger gases, traffic jams and impossible parking, this is not the place for you.

But why be stampeded into overcrowded, overpriced tourist ghettos? Instead, enjoy this beautifully restored (from a watermill) and luxurious villa, on an island, right next to the best stretch of swimming river in the region - far warmer and safer than the ocean. Exclusive use of private swimming pool with sundeck in walled courtyard. Free use of kayaks and rowing boat - an easy row/swim/walk to the river bar with diving platform - children especially adore it. Modern fitted and fully equipped kitchen with island. Riverside herb garden with barbecue. Quality upholstered furniture in good-size rooms. En-suite bath to master bedroom.

The villa was spacious and comfortable for our family of six people. The boats gave us enormous pleasure and the views of kingfishers, herons and otters were a bonus. The trips to the river bar were most enjoyable and the diving platforms gave the boys...More

About the neighbourhood
The Serra da Lousã is arguably the prettiest in Portugal, with certainly one of the country's finest beauty spots - the gorge at Arouce Castle, c. 10 - 12 mins from the villa. The river is the best for swimming in the region, being warm, clear and calm. Many of the rivers and lakes have bars and restaurants on the shore; others you might have all to yourself, even in summer.
The town of Lousã, about 8 mins by car, has supermarkets, restaurants, shops etc.

How to get there
Full directions will be sent. Porto airport is c. 1 hr 45 mins, Lisbon c. 2 hours,. In both cases it's motorway nearly all the way. Easyjet and Ryanair run budget flights to both these destinations from Edinburgh, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Luton, Stansted, Gatwick and Bristol.

Orbitz seem able to offer far better deals with reputable car rental companies than do other agents
