A real gem of a place, a perfect for a family!

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse is one of seven units within a gated property with a large swimming pool and grass/tile surround. The complex, pool and lawn are fastidiously maintained. This modern unit is perfect, we had the best family holiday because of the weather, the pristine surfing beaches,

and Praia de Areia Branca-delightful, full-amenity town with everything at hand. A real gem of a place right on the Atlantic Silver Coast.

What a great holiday unit for a family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had our holiday at this unit in July or August in a last few years. The unit is perfect, very clean, practical, spacious and conveniently located to nearby stunning beaches, bakery, cafes, restaurants and super markets. The large size pool is kept clean and shared by 7 units with nice neighbors . It’s never crowded and it feels like our private pool. The unit is well equipped with all we needed for having our children’s family with little ones visiting us. We liked it here as it has enough activities are available at hand. We enjoy playing tennis down the street, walking to the beaches. It offers a very relaxing and fun holiday for all of our family members.

Great location for exploring the silver coast

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday the house is very well equipped and spacious minutes from the beach and an ideal location from which to explore the Silver Coast area. We visited Obidos,Sintra and Cascais, all within an hours drive and well worth a visit, we took the local bus into Libon from the village, well worth the 7 euro,s each way and so much to see and do.

The information Miki & Colin gave us on the house and surrounding area was exceptional, the local car hire company they recommend picked us from the airport to collect the car from their compound in the village and then took us back to the airport hassle free.

Although the restaurants were limited, the food was excellent and great value for money especially local fish and produce.

Many thanks

L & K

The local beach, Praia da Areia Branca (5 mins easy walk), is a long, sweeping sandy beach suitable for bathing and surfing. Idyllic sheltered and peaceful coves can be found just minutes walk or drive along the coast. Excellent surf beaches both north and south of the area, including the famous 'Supertubos' and Baleal near Peniche (10 mins drive).


Lisbon International Airport (LIS) is only 45-50 minutes drive away. Flights available from British Airways, TAP, Easyjet, BMIBaby, Monarch and Ryanair.

Although travel by bus to Lourinha is possible (1 hour), a hire car is recommended for convenience.


The closest larger town is Lourinha, 5km away (5 minutes by car). The larger holiday town and fishing port of Peniche is 10 mins drive. The delightful medieval walled town of Obidos is 15 mins drive and a perfect day trip! Capital city Lisbon, Leira and the ancient spa town of Caldas da Reina are all within a short drive (30-50 mins) and make for easy cultural days out for sightseeing, shopping and/or eating. The house is a great base for those wishing to see and explore the region.

Further Details:

There are 2 all-weather tennis courts, available for public use, next to the house along with the colourful children's playground. There is also mini-golf available in the village and two local surf schools. A go-kart track is a short drive away. Lots of local shops and markets mean that you don't have to leave the village, and there are all the variety of amenities you'd want and need a short-drive away in neighbouring towns.
