"THE PERFECT ESCAPE"
WELCOME TO THE VERY HEART OF CENTRAL PORTUGAL
Fabulous spacious 4 bed/3 bathroom villa, sleeps 8 people, within 1 minute walk to riverside beach. Ideally situated for wonderful day trips to Portugal's stunning historical cities, the National Parks and their beautiful Schist Villages. Harness the beauty of Nature and enjoy local countryside walks, water skiing, kayaking, swimming...all within a stones throw of this well equipped and characterful home.
“We really enjoyed our stay in your beautiful house!! The house is very well equiped and comfortable. The furniture and all the things there show a very good taste!! Your beautiful garden is really special! An extraordinary highlight for the kids was the possibility to rent a bananaboat and waterskiing! We were two families with four kids - and there was a lot of space there! My daughter told me she felt like in a fairytale! Thanks!”

"We were for one week over Easter at the house. The place is amazing and the little village Dornes lies beautifully between “two riversides”. Liz and Frans were very helpful to get to know the house and the beautiful garden. We had the feeling as it would be our little home, nothing was missing. For mountain biking and hiking is the surrounding more than ideal. Never saw such a place in Portugal, where the ways are so well treated and marked as at Dornes. Hope to go there for another holiday. Thank you very much!"

“We would like to thank you for our wonderful stay recently at Casa de Lis. Photos and reviews are one thing, experiencing this property is another! It is unique. It is a treasure. It is a piece of heaven with the most amazing lakeside views, resting in a stunning location! It was the perfect location for all our day trips to Portugal's historic gems such as Coimbra, Tomar etc. It was always delightful to return to Casa de Lis in the evenings. The house had everything that we needed & more! The owner has put so much thought and detail into making this a very special house to rent & she couldn't have been more helpful with our booking! It is definitely somewhere that I would not only recommend.......but that I would return to! Thank you Casa de Lis”
