Family Holiday Inspiration – Top 5 Home Rentals in Portugal

If you’re looking for inspiration for your next family holiday, look no further. I’ve done all the hard work for you, and put together my favourite holiday rental homes in Portugal, all perfect for a family holiday.

I’ve hand-picked houses in my favourite places in Portugal, all full of character, but all still in spots yet to be discovered by masses of tourists. Each house has a unique décor, ranging from modern to rustic, and landscapes such as the lush Minho coast, the sunny (but quiet) Western Algarve, or historical Évora, you’re bound to fall in love with one of these places.

For a map of Portugal with all the location highlighted, please see the bottom of the post.

Don’t forget that if you decide to book, you can save yourself  €23 on your first booking by using our airbnb invitation.

Evaristo Villa | Design House in Evora


I have a thing for Minho. The beautifully un-touristic northern region of Portugal is home to the country’s most beautiful landscapes, lush green forests and mountains, and a coat steep with stunning beaches. This 4 bedroom villa with a private pool is the perfect location to explore the region or relax at the nearby Moledo beach (10 mins walk) facing the mountains. 10 min walk from Moledo beach.  Closest airport: Vigo, Spain (1h00 by car) or oPorto (50 mins by car) Nearby beaches: Moledo
