Sleeps up to 12 people. Great views. Peaceful.
Just 15 minutes drive from the magnificent Silver Coast beaches, the villa is located in a quiet hill top village. New heated indoor pool was built in Spring 2013 with separate terrace. The main house is extremely spacious with glorious views towards the sea and has been completely modernised, it is luxurious yet totally comfortable. Free Unlimited WiFi reception. The large open-plan kitchen adjoins a huge family room with newly installed cable TV in English, German, French, Portuguese and other European language. This room leads directly onto the southwest-facing terrace and is the perfect place to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. There are large gardens, large sun terraces and an indoor barbecue room.
The beaches at Sao Martinho, Salir do Porto and Foz d'Arelho have excellent facilities for families. Peniche is absolutely perfect for surfers. There are several historic sites of interest in the area.
Excellent local restaurants, the nearest 5 minutes drive away. Many large supermarkets are situated in the nearby town of Caldas da Rainha.

Beautiful villa with great views and super pool
This is a very spacious airy villa with a lovely garden and super views over the bay which is a couple of miles away. The new indoor pool was a great bonus which we enjoyed. The house is very well equipped with lots of space which should please adult groups as well as families. The resorts and local towns were within a short drive so we didn't have to spend long in the car to get to anywhere. We made a day trip to Lisbon which we did on the bus as parking is apparently bad. Overall, a great villa in a super location
I never want to leave!
I have stayed at this wonderful property several times and can highly recommend it. It is modern, spacious and well fitted out. To sit on the terrace with a glass or two of wine and watch the sun set over the Atlantic is bliss! The very extensive garden has many flowering shrubs and fruit trees. If you are lucky there will be lemons for a gin and tonic!
A car is essential but there are so many interesting and historical places in this very scenic area to visit. My favourite is the medieval walled city of Obidos. A walk on the walls gives great views over the countryside and the houses and streets are so photogenic.
Children of all ages are catered for. The enclosed bay at St Martinho has a very safe beach (great for sandcastles). Round the bay near Foz d'Arelho is a nature reserve and a huge sand dune which has to be climbed! On the main Atlantic coast there are plenty of places to surf.
Good fish restaurants are everywhere, especially on the quay in St Martinhu.
This is a great place to stay for two people or up to twelve. I never want to leave - what more can I say?
A Rare Experience
Don't be fooled by the modest aspect of this property from the end of the short country lane.
As soon as you enter the gate, you begin to realise that this is something special. First to hit you is the unexpected view West to the sea, from almost 400ft up.
Then, the beginnings of the long contour hugging, beautifully sculpted garden, which held a magical secret.
The house turns out to be huge and modern and could not possibly disappoint.
A car is definitely required. There are no restaurants or shops within walking distance and the nearest coast is a 20min drive.
Oh, the secret in the garden! At night, the fireflies in June turned it into a sparkling Christmas grotto. Quite magical.
Bonita casa, pero con deficiencias.
Este verano mi mujer y yo decidimos pasar nuestras vacaciones de forma relajada, con nuestros perros, sin tener necesidad de salir de casa salvo para hacer la compra, y para ello reservamos una semana en esta casa, con comodidades para nosotros como la piscina cubierta, mesa de ping pong, barbacoa, jardín, wifi, satélite...
Aunque complicado de llegar, al final localizamos la casa y el recibiento de Rowena fue magnífico, nos enseñó las dependencias, nos indicó donde están situadas las tiendas de alimentación y restaurantes, e incluso nos dejó la nevera con alimentos variados, lo cual agradecimos mucho después de un viaje tan largo.
Los problemas vinieron después, ya que en correos anteriores al alquiler de la casa le pregunté varias veces si el recinto de la casa estaba completamente cerrado, ya que mis perros tienen tendencia a escaparse, por lo que era una necesidad indispensable para alquilarle o no la casa. Su contestación fue que si que estaba completamente cercada y que los muros eran altos por lo que no habría problema alguno. La sorpresa fue cuando al enseñarnos el jardín me comenta fugazmente que un trozo de muro se ha caído, a lo cual me resigno pensando que eso ha debido ocurrir en el trascurso de los días entre que reservé y llegamos a la casa; pero nada más lejos de la realidad, porque no solo ese muro estaba caído, sino también otra parte en otra zona del jardín estaba abierta y una parte de la valla de la zona de entrada al recinto también estaba rota. ¿Resultado? dos veces en el primer día tuve que salir corriendo a buscar a uno de mis perros, por el bosque adyacente una vez y al terreno de los vecinos otra. Con lo cual ya no pude dejar a los perros sueltos por el jardín sin supervisión ni un solo momento y mis vacaciones de tranquilidad junto con mi mujer y perros se redujo a estar dentro d la casa. De todo esto avisé mediante mail a Rowena un par de días antes de abandonar la casa, para que supiese de nuestro descontento por sus mentiras, pero a día de hoy sigo sin recibir respuesta de su parte.
También comentar que es una casa grande, con muchas dependencias, pero aviso que la mayoría de ventanas no cierran y también muchas de las persianas están rotas (unas no suben, otras no bajan, otras tienen la cuerda rota...) por lo que dejar la casa sola con tus pertenencias dentro es una invitación a que te entren a robar sin necesidad de que fuercen nada. Y más deficiencias que no puedo contar por falta de espacio (duchas, satélite...)
Activity and Interests
The villa is located in a very quiet hilltop village with wonderful views towards the coast and inland.
The local beaches are all sandy, the nearest being Sao Martinho (10 minutes) and Foz d'Arelho (15). Sao Martinho is a cove and the sea is always calm. Foz d'Arelho faces both the Atlantic and a tidal sandy estuary. Peniche is idyllic for surfers and many new facilities are being developed. All have excellent facilities.
Nazare to the north is a very popular beach town with a funicular to the cliff top old town. Further north, there are many spectacular beaches hidden away.
There are many historic sites locally. The nearest is Obidos, a magnificent walled Medieval city with narrow streets, shops and cafes. It is a truly magical setting and it is possible to walk round the city walls, if you have a head for heights!
Shopping facilities are excellent with many large supermarkets in the nearby towns of Tornada and Caldas da Rainha making self catering very ea
