Hi Graham, just to let you know we had a fantastic holiday at the villa. What a wonderful spot! the boys could see the surf almost from their beds! Foz was just what we wanted, not too touristy but great beach with cafe/restaurants and plenty to do close by.

Graham, the location and views were stunning and we had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

Impressive location - good family space 10 of us stayed without intruding each others space

  • 5 of 5

The villa has an amazing view - we were all taken back by the picturesque views as we arrived and pressed the button up for the electronic shutters - aged from 17 to 81 in our family . the villa had everything that you need - warm and welcoming

There are plenty of good bars and restaurants nearby and i felt every one was VFM - value for money, The most we spent was 6 euros for a speciality cocktail at Caias del Pria - also ate there and not one complaint from 10 of us 24 euros a head starters mains pudding and drinks -

There is a bbq and i went to the local shop and butchers - 1/2 the price of the UK - great to stay in - great to go out

What more can i say -

best to have a car to get around as there are many good local towns and attractions

Obidos - AMAZING !!!!!

I will be definitely returning

The whole family say the same- i have recommended to so many work friends - i think it is an unknown treasure- peaceful but happening if you want it -

Superbe maison, superbe vue

  • 5 of 5

Une semaine parfaite, maison tres spacieuse, bien équipée, vue imprenable. Se reveiller avec la magnifique vue de la baie. Un peu venteux, mais en été cela doit être un avantage. Il y a beaucoup à faire aux alentours. Nous recommanderont cette location à nos amis.

Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

This area is fantastic for those who love water sports. Body boarding, kite surfing, wind surfing, canoeing and swimming. There is a Sailing School based 5 mins drive from the villa on the lagoon at Foz. Sea fishing is very popular amongst the locals, even at night.

There are several marked walks with a 10km, 14km and 16 km walk mapped out along the coast and through the nearby forest.

The Silver Coast has many vineyards and there is a wine route where many reds and whites can be sampled.


We have the Beach at Foz which is only 5-10 mins walk from the villa. Another beach is situated just a 5 min drive up the coastal road. Further along this same road is the town of Sao Martinho which has a protected bay with sandy beach and protected sand dunes. Further along the coast is the fantastic town of Nazare with another sandy beach and restaurants with sea views. In the other direction the fantastic beaches at Peniche are worth a visit (approx 30 min drive).


Lisbon Airport is only 50 mins (88kms) by car. Oporto Airport is 3 hours by car. A hire car is an essential tool to fully enjoy the surrounding areas.


Caldas Da Rainha - Market Town 10 mins by car.

Obidos - Historic Town with cobbled streets 15 mins by car.

Lisbon - Capital City 50 mins by car.

Historic Monastry's at Alcobaca and Batalha and Fatima are all easily travelled to via the brilliant motorway network.

Further Details:

There is a fruit and vegetable market in Caldas Da Rainha as well as banks, shops, 3 hypermarkets and restaurants. There is a couple of small supermarkets and shops in Foz as well as bars and restaurants that overlook the beach and the sea. A welcome pack will be provided on your arrival. This will consist of essentials such as bread, milk, tea and coffee, sugar, water, fruit, cheese, butter, orange juice and wc rolls.
