About the Owner

I live in England with my husband and two children. We love to spend holiday time in Foz. We drove the coastline from Porto to Lisbon in search of a holiday home and we completely fell in love with Foz do Arelho. Foz has the most magnificent beach with acres of sand, a shallow lagoon which is perfect for the children and dramatic rolling Atlantic waves.

Our apartment's position is unique in that we have a breathtaking panoramic view of the beach, the lagoon and the ocean. We love hearing the waves of the ocean, watching the surfer dudes and spending quality time with our family.

The journey from Lisbon airport is quick and easy approx. 1 hour in the car or by coach into Caldas to Rainha (nearby town). The area is charming and unspoilt offering many great places to visit and shop, a sailing school, nearby golf courses, great restaurants and a relaxed approach to life.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing! Alison the owner is very friendly and professional. The apartment was spotless and exactly as advertised. There was an information pack with all the information you could ever need, as well as all the appliances required.

Would definitely recommend and most certainly going to stay here again!

Apartment review

  • 5 of 5

This really is the most special location. The apartment is comfortable and well equiped and just a stone's throw from Foz do Arelho beach and the lagoon. It is a pleasure to watch the lagoon ebb and flow each day from the apartment's large balcony. The beach never gets too busy - and we visited in August - because it is so big. The apartment complex also has a set of lovely tiered pools and our boys were often the only ones using them (depending on the time of day). A car is recommended but you can walk into the village for day-to-day supplies. Be sure to visit the walled town of Obidos. All in all, a beautiful place we hope to return to.

Flott utsikt

  • 3 of 5

Leiligheten hadde en fantastisk utsikt. Ble mottatt av en dame som ga oss nøkler til leiligheten. Spurte etter skifte av håndklær og sengetøy, forstå det slik at det ville bli skiftet en gang i uken. Men det stemte nok ikke, så vi vasket selv, vanskelig å få tørket klærne. Jeg påpekte at jeg syntes gulvene virket skitne, men dette ble avfeid. Startet med vasking av gulv og kjøkkenskap, her var det meget skittent. Soverommet med to senger var nok bare for barn. Nesten hver morgen var sengebunnen falt i gulvet. Jeg har et råd til eieren av leiligheten , den bør oppgraderes og ryddes

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Lisbon at 88 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : A la Norte Beach Bar at 0.2 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Santander at 800 Kilometres Nearest Train : Caldas da Rainha at 8 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A8 at 6 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Restaurant Europa at 0.2 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Foz Do Arelho at 0.2 Kilometres Car: recommended

The Sailing School on Obidos Lagoon offers the following activities; windsurfing, catamarans, kitesurfing, waterskiing and canoeing. You can choose to join a course for a few hours each day or take private lessons.

The Silver Coast is also one of Portugal's most exciting wine producing regions - via its wine route some excellent reds and whites can be sampled.

Coast/Beach:

Foz Do Arelho's beautiful white sandy beach is just a few minutes walk from the apartment. The lagoon is warm, calm and safe for children. The beach is enormous and never feels overcrowded. The Atlantic rollers are dramatic to watch and popular with surfers. There is often some sort of inpromptu beach activity such as football or volley ball.

Other nearby good beaches include Sao Martinho da Porto (13km) and Salir do Porto (10km), Peniche and Baleal.

Travel:

Lisbon airport - 86km (55 min). Oporto airport - 2 hrs. Car hire is recommended to get from the airport to the apartment but once there, you can walk to beach, restaurants, bars etc. If you prefer not to hire a car then there is a regular coach service from Lisbon to Caldas da Rainha and then you can take a short taxi ride from Caldas to the apartment.

Distances:

The town of Foz do Arelho is a 10 minute walk/5 minute drive and offers a bank, bakery, pharmacy, doctor, mini-supermarkets and more bars and restaurants. The charming town of Obidos is a 15 minute drive to its cobbled streets, spectacular ramparts, white washed houses and shops with handicrafts. A 10 minute drive to Caldas (famous for pottery) offers hypermarkets, shopping and daily market offering fresh produce. Peniche (40km), a beautiful old fishing village, offers a water park and surfing.

Further Details:

Flights are available daily from Easyjet, Ryanair, Tap, BA. If you book early then prices are very reasonable.

The apartment provides a super place from which to explore some of the unspoilt Silver Coast. The Silver Coast remains alluringly Portuguese in its cuisine, language and pace of life. Not far away are three Unesco World Heritage Sites; the monasteries of Batalha and Alcobaca and the town of Sintra to the south.

Facilities

From the Owner

The property is just a 2 minute walk down the steps to the magnificent beach. There is a big box of beach equipment for guests to use so that you can travel light. Great restaurants and cafes line the promenade of the beach. We love walking up from a happy afternoon on the beach and enjoying a sun downer cocktail in one of the beach bars whilst our children build sandcastles and play with new found friends. The 3 swimming pools provide plenty of entertainment for all ages. Our terrace is arguably the best of the condominium as it is really big and a great place to sunbathe, chill out, eat outdoors, read a book, enjoy a glass of wine and just sit back and enjoy your holiday. The terrace has all day sunshine (we have umbrellas so you won't burn) and is sheltered from the wind.
