The Ceira River runs along the boundary of the village, here the local Council have built a bar, barbecue and picnic facilities. Every summer they bring in beach sand to place along the river for swimming. Varzea Pequena (little fertile valley) is a 5 minute drive to the town of Gois. Gois is a 45 minute drive from the University city of Coimbra and 2¼ hr drive from Porto and Lisbon Airports. The area is rich in history with numerous historical places of interest to visit. For those looking for somewhere different to relax and explore, then here is the perfect holiday to discover the real Portugal.
