The Costa de Prata/Silver Coast/Central Portugal region

Central Portugal has the beauty of the hills and forests, the scents of eucalpyptus and pine, fresh clean air and plenty of lakes and rivers.

The university city of Coimbra is just 40 minutes drive away, the seaside town of Figueira do Foz about an hour and a half.

A drive to Coinimbriga will allow you to explore a large site of Roman ruins.

The climate is usually very pleasant and the temperatures can get hot in the summer months - a good excuse for a dip in a crystal clear river!


Gois is a pretty riverside town which attracts tourists in the summer months. It has lots of attractive old features, including a water wheel. There is an active tourist office with lots of local information.

The local area is good for cycling, fishing, swimming (river beaches), walking, cafes and restaurants within a short 5 minute drive.

There are horse riding stables too.

It is possible to have a holiday here without a car if you like walking as local amenities (15 mins) and river beaches (30 mins) are close. Also there are local taxis. If you are property hunting, a car would be needed.
