Activity and Interests

Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

Perfect for those who love walking, there are some amazing local walks, with translated guides in the house.

Exploring, local culture, painting and relaxing.

It is sometimes possible to provide riding by prior arrangement. For those who like this but require a little more, Reriz has good accessibility to larger towns such as Castro Daire, a 15 minute drive away, which offers a supermarket, shopping, cafes, bars, restaurants, banks, a children's playground and daily fresh fish and fruit and veg markets. The modern city of Viseu, a 30 minute drive away, offers not only large air conditioned shopping malls including a large cinema and indoor ice rink! Large international supermarkets, designer boutiques and restaurants but also history by way of a cathedral, museums, traditional shopping streets and restaurants - the Cortico is highly recommended. Lamego, 20-30 minute drive, offers spectacular views, an amazing climb up hundreds of ornate steps to churches, restaurants and shops.

Each individually worth visiting and enjoying.

Coast/Beach:

Aveiro is an about hours drive away along the motorway. The city offers modern restaurants and boutiques, combined with traditional buildings and canals which can be enjoyed on boat trips. The beaches just beyond Aveiro are clean with white sandy beaches and offer a the more typical attractions of beach holidays.

Travel:

Porto airport is approx 1 1/2 - 2 hours drive. Lisbon airport is approx 3 hours drive. Reriz is approx 380 miles from the Spanish ferry port of Santander and is an easy days drive.

Distances:

Castro Daire is a 15 minute drive

Viseu is a 30 minute drive

Lamego is a 20-30 minute drive

Porto is a 1 1/2 - 2 hour drive or you can catch a train from Regua (30 minute drive) which takes you on a stunning riverside trip directly into central Porto.

Further Details:

The weather has a Mediterranean climate, with normally hot summers of above 30 degrees during July and August. As the house is in the mountains it is usually cools to around 15C at night. Little rain falls during the summer, but the winters are usually quite wet so we only let the property during the 'good' season from April - September. Mobile phones do work in the house, although reception can be a little patchy depending upon network!
