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.

From the Owner

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.

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, pagodas, terracotta statues and modern sculptures can be found throughout the gardens & also a lake containing koi carp.

Alcobaca Monastery - dating from the 12th century, it was one of the most important of the mediaeval 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.
