About the Owner

We wanted somewhere where he could relax from the usual stresses of life so when my husband and I found Foz do Arelho and our apartment we knew we were fortunate. Both of us love to bring family and friends to see our property and are delighted when they too find it as charming a location and well situated as we do. I have provided guests with recommended restaurants, local wines and places of interest as well as the wide choice of sporting activities available; golf, fishing, sailing, surfing, horse riding and more. I want you to enjoy and experience what is here waiting for you, so please feel free to contact me for any information that you think will help you to make your holiday choice.

Fantastic spacious apartment with wonderful views!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic 3 bed apartment, the pictures really don't do it justice. It is much larger than it looks, well furnished, well maintained and equipped with everything you need. The main balcony wraps around 3 sides of the apartment and is huge, giving fantastic 180 degree views to the Atlantic, lagoon and beyond. There is also a smaller balcony off the kitchen and master bedroom which overlooks the pool and looks out to sea.

The 3 tier pool managed to keep the children entertained for hours, with lots of fun racing from the top pool to the bottom pool and back again - managing to jump between the pools downwards and climb back up again! It is worth noting for families with younger children that the pools were all different depths, with the top pool being the shallowest and suitable for non-swimmers. The beach was also a big hit, only a 2 minute walk away, the lagoon constantly changing in it's appearance. The Atlantic side whilst great for experienced surfers was a bit too rough our boys age 9 and 11. But a short drive to Baleal / Peniche - about 30 minutes away - gave them lots of body boarding pleasure. The TV and wifi were fantastic for keeping our 2 boys occupied when we wanted some downtime from the pool, beach and them...

The apartment is well located with lots of fantastic places within easy reach - Peniche, Obidos, Sintra, Alcobaca, Leiria and if you're looking for cheap Portuguese football shirts then head to Nazare about 30 minutes up the coast.

Would certainly recommend and hope to return one day ourselves.

Wonderful beachside apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful apartment. It is so spacious and comfortable. We are a family of 5 with three teenagers. The wifi was excellent so the kids were happy! The bedrooms and storage were great. The master bed was extremely comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. However for me the winning aspect of this apartment is the incredible terrace. It is fantastic. The view and sound of the waves is magic. The terrace is so spacious and wraps around the apartment. Kathy was so pleasant to deal with. It was a truly great experience from start to finish

Spacious apartment with magnificent views

  • 5 of 5

Great 3-bed apartment. Much larger than expected and very well-furnished, well-maintained and equipped. Very suitable for our family of 5 which includes 3 teenagers. TV, wifi and lots of space for everyone! Huge terrace on 3-sides of apartment and absolutely wonderful views of lagoon and ocean. Just a 2 minute walk down to the beach with a small range of little bars and cafes - perfect as not too busy. Good base for excursions - Tomar, Batalha, Alcobaca, Obidos, Peniche - within a drive of no more than one hour (and Lisbon). Owner provided lots of good information/great customer service. Also provided beach equipment/sunshades and windbreaks - really appreciated this as well as so many sunchairs and cushions for terrace. Would definitely go back. Enjoyed this part of Portugal - lots to see and visit and excellent value for money. Sea is a little cold and the pool too - apart from this - wonderful!

Location

From the Owner

We bought our lovely apartment 8 years ago. It was difficult not to! The views provide an ever changing scene from day to day and entertain us constantly. We are close to excellent restaurants and bars so do not have to use the car to eat and drink locally. We are close to the village and village life, again within walking distance which enables us to get all our immediate provisions from the butcher, baker and small supermarkets as well as a coffee. Being so close by car to the town of Caldas da Rainha, I love to shop in its market place where almost every day I can buy local cheeses, olives, fruit and vegetables, flowers and plants and even a wicker basket! We are so close to so many places of interest, fun and culture that we felt we had to buy this wonderful apartment.

Facilities

From the Owner

The view from the apartment is spectacular as it not only has uninterrupted views of the ocean; looking across to the Berlinga Islands and Peniche but also you can while away peaceful hours viewing the Obidos lagoon. Our terrace extends round three sides of the apartment and is large enough to follow the sun all day long and still remain in the shade if you wish. It really is only a couple of minutes from the beach providing either fun for all or romantic strolls on the sand. This is not only an area for the summer months, we have been lucky to enjoy sunshine throughout the year and still the bars and restaurants remain open. The market for all your produce is always available so getting the taste of the region is never a problem for you.
