Holiday Rental House
O Ninho Do Rei is a perfect getaway for those who seak some peace and tranquility where the Portuguese life is famous for. The surrounding area has many walking tracks. Some are very easy and some are more for the advanced hiker among us. This small estate is located closeby the Zezere river where you can go swimming or kayaking, even wake boarding belongs to the possibilities. Amongst the Zezere river there are many riverbeaches where you can relax, most of them have a small bar or restaurant for refreshments. What we like to provide you is a place of your own where you can feel at home. Away from the tourist industry but amongst the locals. In a quiet and peacefull area where you can enjoy the real Portugal live surrounded by farmers and small villages in the green hart of the Country...O Ninho Do Rei is a perfect getaway for those who seak some peace and tranquility where the Portuguese life is famous for.

A gem of a place in River Beach Heaven!
This is a stunning place.  Look at the photos of the apartments on the official website, and that's exactly how they are...cosy, comfortable, clean and set in lovely surroundings with fruit trees around the estate.  Gorgeous and beautiful! What the photos can't tell you is the peace and tranquility this place has to offer you. And the owners are wonderful people. Truly wonderful, caring and trustworthy people. A very friendly Dutch couple who decided to make a new life in the exact centre of Portugal. You won't be disappointed staying here unless you are after a lively busier setting. Although it only takes less than 2 hours to drive from Lisbon to here (with a straightforward journey), you are probably not just coming here for some peace, quietness and tranquility to stay in O Ninho do Rei.  You are probably more likely to seek this destination to explore the beautiful nature and exotic places scattered around the area, with hills and mountains shielding the most gorgeous river beaches offering all kinds of watersports and activities, or indeed simply hiking or mountain biking around the place. No saltwater to wash off, but you can still enjoy sandy areas etc.  Perfect! I should conclude by noting that I am naturally a City person, enjoying the busy street life (minus the tourists if I could!) with all of the conveniences you usually have at your disposal. I had no idea or expectation that I would fall in love with this area, including Vila de Rei, Serta, and so on.  But now I can say that I'm hooked. A Ninho do Rei is simply the icing on the cake.  See you soon again.

Amazing area if you want to experience an authentic part of Portugal.
The apartements of O Nino do Rei are very confortable and beautifully restored by Kim and Stephan, very lovely and hospitable couple. We had a very warm welcome and were offered a glass of wine acompanied by olives, some bread and...OMG..the best oliveoil we have ever tasted!! (First harvest ever from their olivetrees...) Waking up with songbirds (singing; “Is dit alles” by Doe Maar 😂)and fresh orange juice from the trees in front of the house...Does life get any better than this? Ray & Marianne, Netherlands

Dear Ray and Marianne, It was lovely having you as our guests, it was a pity you only stayed with us for one night. We would be happy welcoming you again one day. Warm regards, Kim and Stef
