Overview of Area: The Oeste (West) Region of Portugal, just an hour north of Lisbon, is an area of protected and outstanding natural beauty with spectacular cliffs, pristine beaches and local towns and villages steeped in history. Sample mouth-watering local cuisine, in particular the seafood - accompanied of course, by the Region's excellent local wine. The natural attractions of the Atlantic setting include great surfing and the clear waters around the dramatic Berlengas Islands make this one of the best diving locations in Portugal. Those seeking a less energetic way of life will enjoy the abundance of flora and fauna, grand ocean views, and vast stretches of golden sand conducive to relaxing, whilst the historic nearby towns of Óbidos and Caldas da Rainha are a timeless reminder of the area's rich cultural past. The nearby fishing ports of Nazare and Peniche have a string of sea front fish restaurants where its possible to choose your dinner from the day's catch.

About Michael O'Dwyer

My wife and I live in Dublin, Ireland and have a family of 4 children ranging in age from 12 to 18. We have used the apartment each year since we bought it as our family holiday base. There's lots of equipment for sports and leisure which we have used to maximise our enjoyment and this is available to you for your holiday.

Michael O'Dwyer purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Michael O'Dwyer chose Paredes da Vitoria

We bought this property because of its location. It sits on top of a clifftop overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. It has fantastic views and you can watch the sun set over the ocean each evening from the apartment. The apartment complex has lots of facilities (pool, tennis court, games room, private path to the beach) and is situated between two popular beach towns. There are ample cycle tracks, walks and forests close by. It's a real 'get away from it all' location and ideal for family holidays.

For us, its where we dream of retiring to when our family is grown up.

What makes this apartment unique

The location is fantastic and is what you dream of when you think of living beside the ocean. The area has everything you require for a family holiday and is also a great location for surfing enthusiasts. It's a quiet location and perfect if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle.

Paradise in Portugal !

  • 4 of 5

Having arrived late at night,to the sound of breaking waves, we awoke on Thursday morning with great anticipation of our 2 weeks in Portugal. We were not disappointed as the view which greeted us from the front door was superb. Looking out over the sea and quiet beach we were almost speechless at the spectacle. As we were west facing the sunsets were awesome.

The property and surroundings were clean and secure with our car in an underground car park with access straight into the property.

With tennis, squash, racketball, pool, table tennis and the swimming pool all close safe and clean we were soon into a healthy regime.

The children inform me that there are 240 steps down to the beach which at that point was very empty. 800 metres along the beach were a couple of bars and changing huts, but there was still a massive expanse of virtually empty sand.

On our first foray into the hamlet on the beach we found a superb restaurant on the main street which was heaving every night with people coming from upto 40 kilometres away. Fantastic fish dishes.

The nearest town of Nazare was an interesting place to visit and on our way found a good supermarket.

For eating in, the kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils.

It is not a place to go if you want a busy holiday of bars and noise, it is peaceful and not spoilt by too much commercialism.

We have already recommended the property to our friends and we would most certainly return.

A wonderful time.

We really enjoyed the house and the view.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time in there. The house is quite big and the swimming pool and the beach were great. Our kids had a lot of fun, despite the long stairway to the beach. It was the price to pay for like "our private beach". We had good weather most of the time . We will be back for sure.

Vacances très agreable

  • 4 of 5

Appartement dans résidence très calme. Un jardin donne directement sur l océan. Il est très bien équipé: jouets pour la plage, vélo, jeux de société. La résidence est fermée, place de parking couvert. La piscine est très agréable. Un petit sentier mène a la plage où il y a peu de monde. Coucher de soleil sur l océan: tous les soirs!

Idéal pour un séjour en famille avec petits enfants. On est loin des bords de plage animés.

Seul bémol : les deux chambres sans fenêtres sentent la moisissure car humide.

the best view over the Atlantic you have ever seen

  • 5 of 5

The appartment was exactly as shown on the HomeAway website. The only thing that was really different was the view. It is simply impossible to give an impression of this by showing a picture.

The owner left the house with a lot of things making the stay more comfortable, there are some bikes, beach stuff, tennis gear and a lot more so you don't have to take anything with you. its fully equiped!

The area is rather quiet, if you want to meet a lot of people and go out every day don't go. If you want to experience the local beach live and enjoy a real see do come over. This is the best spot you can find for that.

In the direct area of the appartment you can find a really good surf school (Twins) and they offer a class of 2 hours for only € 15 including all gear.

Flying to Lisboa is also a very good connection, the drive did cost us 1.30 hrs.

Bottom line a surprisingly good Holiday for our family (2 adults, 2 kids 17 and 13)
