We had a wonderful stay at Casa Lerryn! Probably the best vacation house we ever rented. This recently renovated house is just gorgious. Both modern and full of character, it has all equipments you may need and the barbecue/outside dining area and pool deck are just perfect to chill out and have a great time with friends and family. The natural surroundings are simply amazing: pines and eucalyptus forests (what a lovely smell!), meadows, olive trees... The luxury of enjoying uncomparable confort while feeling in the middle of nowhere. And yet it only takes 5 minutes drive to get to the lovely village of Serta, where you will find supermarkets and both excellent and cheap restaurants. Last but not least, the hosts: Lerryn and Mark trully are great persons. Both available and discreet, they have done their utmost to make us feel at home and gave us a wealth of useful information to discover the region. Their kindness and hospitality have made our stay even more memorable. We will definitely return to Casa Lerryn in the near future to further visit Central Portugal, a region really worth discovering throughout all seasons with its sunny weather, mountains, forests, rivers, fluvial beaches and hiking tracks.

Amazing experience! The house is charming and comfortable, Sertã is a lovely area with plenty to do and see, and most importantly, Lerryn and Mark are fantastic people who truly do everything to make you feel welcome. Lerryn stocked the house with all the essentials, so we didn't need to go shopping right away, which we greatly appreciated. The house surroundings are gorgeous and quiet, not to mention the amazing pool deck, inviting you to just relax and unwind with a glass of wine. There is an incredible amount of things to do and see within 30 minutes or less of the house, and Lerryn and Mark were amazing hosts providing us with plenty of good tips and suggestions - the five days we spent definitely weren't enough! We can't recommend Lerryn's and Mark's property enough - we had a fantastic time and will be back for sure!

My husband Mark & I have started a new life in Central Portugal.
Previously we ran CD stores in the UK for over 20 years,and then worked in social care.
We love the culture and pace of life in Sertá,plus the sun,beautiful scenery and friendly locals.
Theres nothing better than relaxing in a local bar with a glass of wine ,good cheese and chorizo!
There are many restaurants in Sertá, all independently run using good local produce. Eating and drinking here is not expensive.
We love meeting people ,recommending places to visit and hearing life stories, but also understand that some people are happier doing their own thing.
Life is short, we have embarked on an adventure,everyday is different.
Try Central Portugal,discover the unexpected!
