Why Vivien Gibbings chose Foz do Arelho

We love the property because of its quiet location on the edge of a small seaside town, yet within 2 minutes walk of shops, bars & restaurants. The town has a friendly Portuguese feel to it and there's so much to see in the wider area, historic towns/castles and differing scenery - we're still exploring.

Exactly as described!

  • 5 of 5

This house is exactly as described.

In a quiet location so a car is very useful.

Very clean and well presented property on 3 floors with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. All rooms have a balcony/terrace with the room on the third floor benfiting from an ensuite and a large sun terrace.

A shared swimming pool with the other properties.

Not far from the beach which has a lagoon so safe swimming for children. We drove to Peniche/Baleal beach which is 20mins away which had more waves and larger beach. Perfect location for various sights to see in the area including the Obidos medieval festival which is well worth going to.

The property has everything you need- beach equipment such as body boards, wind breaks etc are found in the basement as are bikes and other items you may wish to use. Also a wide selection of DVDs (which were useful on a cloudy afternoon)

The owner is extremely helpful.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

superbe maison

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette maison très agréable avec une vue superbe sur le lagon.

La piscine extérieure est un plus et doit être appréciable en été et le village dispose de tous les commerces et restaurants pour passer des vacances reposantes.

Je ne peux que recommander cette maison de ville.

Foz do Arelho
Car: recommended

Travel to Foz do Arelho:

Lisbon airport is approx 50 mins drive, 88km. Porto 3 hours. Faro 4 hours. Flights to Lisbon: Easyjet from Luton and Bristol, Ryanair from Stansted, Monarch from Gatwick, BMIbaby from Birmingham. Flights also from Heathrow.

Car hire is recommended to take full advantage of the area.

Local Amenities:

Foz do Arelho centre is 2 minutes walk. There is a post office, bank, cafes/bars, restaurants, bakers, butchers, 2 small supermarkets, fishing tackle shop and surgery.

Beaches:

The lagoon beach at Foz (2 minutes drive or 20 minutes walk) is perfect for young families, as it is a very safe and calm bathing area. It has numerous bars and restaurants. For the more adventurous, the Atlantic beach, which is a further 5 minutes walk has large waves for surfing. There is beach entertainment in the day and evenings during the summer weeks. However, the beach is so huge you can be far enough away not to know it's there!

Place to visit:

Obidos - beautiful, historic, medieval town - a walk around the walls with views over the rooftops and surrounding countryside is a must! 20 mins drive.

Buddha Eden - the largest oriental garden in Europe, a hidden gem in the Portuguese countryside. The 35 hectare garden was created as a reaction to the Taliban's destruction of the Buddhas of Bamiyan, in central Afghanistan. Buddhas of all sizes, pagodas, terracotta statues and modern sculptures can be found throughout the gardens. There is a large lake containing koi carp and streams and waterfalls in the tranquil woods. Entry is a modest 3 euros (as of end 2016). Another absolute must! 20 mins drive.

Caldas da Rainha - main shopping centre with supermarkets and a daily, open-air fruit and vegetable market. The tranquil park and museums are worth a visit. 10 mins drive.

Sao Martinho do Porto - resort in a beautiful shell-shaped bay. Go for a walk along the boardwalk over the dunes and take the free lift in the tourist office to the cliff tops for gorgeous views. 10 mins drive.

Nazare - larger resort with funicular railway to the citadel. Visit the fort with spectacular views along the coast and an exhibition of world-record breaking surfing in the area. Huge sandy beach and waterpark. 30 mins drive.

Peniche - visit the water park or take a boat trip from here to the island of Berlenga Grande, part of the Berlenga nature reserve. 30 mins drive.

Alcobaca Monastery - dating from the 12th century, it was one of the most important of the medieval monasteries in Portugal. Well worth a visit to see its chapels, royal tombs, cloisters and especially the Room of Kings with 17th-18th century statues representing the Kings of Portugal & walls decorated with blue-white tiles that tell the history of the Monastery of Alcobaça. It was listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1989. 40 mins drive.

Fatima - the Catholic shrine where the Virgin Mary appeared to 3 shepherd children in 1917. Fatima attracts thousands of pilgrims from all over the world, particularly on the pilgrimage days in May and October. 1 hour drive

Lisbon, with all its attractions is approximately 1 hour's drive.

Sintra - further afield but an amazing place to visit . Climb up to Pena Palace, a fairytale castle, located almost 500m above sea level, with spectacular views in all directions.There is also the beautiful National Palace with its lavish interior. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 1 hour 30 minutes drive.

Escola de Vela da Lagoa sailing school is just 5 mins drive away, on the Obidos lagoon. Windsurfing, catamaran sailing or kite-surfing is available in a safe environment, well away from bathers.
