About the Owner
Retired Engineer and former Director of a family owned security print company, with four married sons and thirteen
grandchildren living in UK and Australia! Villa Reggubo (name reversed is my wife's most used expression on the golf course!) is the third property we have built at Praia del Rey, each one being an improvement on the previous one. We have been renting our properties there since 2002. Before that, we used to rent out an apartment in Morzine in the French Alps. Our son Charlie and his wife Claire own an Alpine chalet in the same village, which they also rent out, all the year round. Details, if you are interested in an Alpine skiing or summer holiday, see Owners Direct, ref. FR7317
Guestbook comments from the owner
Sadly, our time in your villa has come to an end, but what a wonderful time we had whilst here. The living space, the pool, the kitchen all excellent. We loved having a drink before dinner on the balcony, with the ocean behind us! We also tried several of your restaurant recommendations and found them to be very good, and also your surf school and have all got the surfing bug! JP July 2013
This has been a tranquil oasis allowing a complete escape from our hectic exhausting lives! The sun, seaview, fresh breezes, beautiful pool and luxurious accommodation has made our stay perfect. Pure escapism at its best. PS July 2012

Activity and Interests
The beaches are within 5 mins. walking distance. Top level surfing and is at Baleal and Peniche (Supertubes) both about 15 mins by car. Or 20 mins by car away is the best windsurfing and kite surfing on Obidos Lagoon, a large sheltered expanse of water which also has dinghy sailing, and fishing. Generally, watersports require wet/dry suits, which are available for hire, as are surf boards. The Atlantic Ocean itself is very powerful with onshore winds, and local advice should be sought.
Lisbon is the nearest airport, about 60 mins by car, along A8 motorway. Oporto is about 2hrs 30 mins. A car is essential. Inexpensive rentals are available from both airports. If arriving by car from UK, Santander and Bilbao are 8-9 hrs drive away, now entirely on motorways.
