About the property

House in Sao Martinho do Porto, Silver Coast, Portugal - On Small Private Condomium, 5 mins Walk to the Beach

This stunning newly built house is in the unspoilt, peaceful village of Salir do Porto, just 5 minutes walk from the beach and the famous Salir sand dunes. Only 3 minutes drive from the lovely resort of Sao Martinho do Porto, with its crescent shaped bay. The house is in enclosed grounds with a shared swimming pool. The house is on a small condominium of 7 houses with a shared 10x4m pool.

It has 4 large bedrooms on the first floor and also a separate room with sofa bed, which can be used as a 5th bedroom. Part of the basement has been converted into a games room with table tennis, darts and table football, plenty to keep older kids happy for hours! Fixed internet so free WiFi for all.

There are several traditional Portuguese restaurants within 5/10 minutes walk of the house and many more in Sao Martinho at the other end of the bay....a 5 minute drive or a 25 minute saunter along the boardwalk.

The area has so much to offer with the beautiful walled city of Obidos just 15 minutes away, 3 top quality golf courses within 40 minutes drive, lovely seaside resorts, 2 waterparks and plenty of opportunity for walking, climbing, water sports. The list is endless.

About Debra Shally

Tony and I (Deb) have a freight forwarding business in the UK. We decided to buy a house abroad and chose Portugal's Silver Coast as it is relatively unspoiled and not commercialised. We chose Sao Martinho/Salir as its very safe bathing for kids, we have a girl, now 17 and boy, now 14 The people are lovely, the food & drink are cheap and the sun shines a lot, what's not to like?

Debra Shally purchased this house in 2008

Why Debra Shally chose Salir do Porto

The house is spacious but we have tried to make it homely too. I thought of all the things I have liked when I stayed in holiday places and made sure we had them, e.g lots of games, DVDs etc. Also free WiFi which keeps the teenagers happy and UK TV too. We also have a games room with table tennis, table football and an exercise bike too. There are 3 adult and 1 child's bike which you are welcome to use, we hope to buy a 4th adult bike in May 2017. Although there are 7 houses in total on the condominium, only 3 are rented out so the pool is not used very much by other people. We are usually the only ones in it when we are there.

Salir has a lovely village feel and there are some great restaurants within walking distance. Sao Martinho is a little busier and has many more to choose from.

The beach down the road is great for kids and there are also great beaches, with and without big waves at Foz d'Arelho and Peniche. There's also the walled city at Obidos, Portugals 2nd most visited tourist attraction, 15 minutes away. It's only just over an hour to Lisbon too if you want a change of scene and about an hour and a half to Sintra with its gorgeous palaces.

A taste of the real Portugal

  • 5 of 5

The villa was great. It suited our family very well (2 adults and 2 16 year old boys) we loved how close it was to some really great local restaurants in Salir and it was nice to walk off some holiday calories by walking into Sao Martinho. The best beach we found was in Salgado just 10 mins by car it was stunning. The waves were a bit scary though so if you have younger children the bay in Sao martinho is ideal and the faculties second to none . Thank you to Debra and Tony you kept us informed from the time we booked and the great information left in the villa meant we experienced the real Portugal x

Very spacious property, all sports, beach & other equipment there, even a bike to go birdwatching!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Plenty of space for everyone to do their own thing and also to get together. Great terrace and seating with view to the pool. Even a blow up turtle to keep you company there! There was an ongoing table tennis challenge during our stay, barbeques, eating indoors on a cold evening, and a well equipped kitchen.

Lots to do in the area we enjoyed surfing, windsurfing, swimming, jumping waves, sand dune surfing, eating out, a local festival, old towns, museum and birdwatching.

Would totally recommend the house.

Lovely spacious house. Great for families

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious house which easily accommodated our two families. Teenagers loved the games room and we all enjoyed the swimming pool. Great book of ideas and suggestions. Too much to fit into a week! Beach was so close we could go back to collect forgotten items. Safe lagoon for children and adults to play in but not too far from the surf beach for more excitement. Had planned to eat in but close proximity of some great inexpensive restaurants meant we only lit the bbq once. The 48 flavours ice cream shop, where you bought by weight, was an instant hit with us all. Highly recommend as a base to explore the Lisbon coast. We will definitely be returning.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious house, clean with all mod cons & everything needed for a pleasant stay for a family. We were usually the only people in the shared pool. There is a playroom with many games & toys in. There is a basement with washer/dryer & games room with table tennis & darts. Owners checked in with us to make sure everything was ok. A fab place to stay & a great base to explore the area. Loved it

Fantastic House

  • 5 of 5

The house and setting was fantastic, great for 2 families sharing a holiday. It was spacious, clean and well maintained and would definitely recommend it. Everything you might want or need was there. Some great local restaurants within walking distance. Local town was great but also well located for trips to Lisbon and Obidos. Lovely pool area and terrace. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.

Salir do Porto
Car: recommended


The beach at Salir and Sao Martinho is actually all part of the same crescent shaped bay. The nearest beach is a 5 minute walk from the house. Here you will find the 50m high sand dune, climb if you dare! At high tide you can bathe right there at the estuary or cross the bridge onto the boardwalk. A short 5 minute walk will bring you to the beach proper which stretches all the way around to Sao Martinho. The beach is safe for young children, no big waves and shallow for a long way out.


Salir do Porto is about an hour's drive from Lisbon airport which is serviced by Easyjet, BMI Baby, TAP and BA. It's a very easy journey along a very quiet motorway, toll charges are about 5 euros. Ryanair and Flybe offer cheap flights to Porto, which is a 2.5 hour drive. Busy when you go through Porto itself but empty motorways all the way after that, toll charges are about 13 euros. We can recommend meet and greet car hire at both airports or arrange a transfer if required.


Salir is well situated for many places to visit. The nearest town is Caldas da Rainha 20 min drive with a lovely wooded park. Obidos, the 2nd most visited place in Portugal, is 15 mins drive away. The quaint seaside resort of Nazare is 15 mins by car, it has a water park for the kids! Further afield there are Alcobaca and Batalha with their monasteries, Fatima, the caves at Mira d'Aire and the Belengas Island off Peniche...to name but a few.

Further Details:

Salir do Porto has a small supermarket, ATM and free internet access in the village. Tennis courts, 2 minutes away, can be booked at the community centre and there is a brand new open air swimming pool 3 mintues walk from the house.

There are also several restaurants and cafes within 10 mins walk or less. It also has a brand new huge open air swimming pool which is 3 minutes walk from the house.

Sao Martinho is right on your doorstep has a lovely seafront with shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and ice cream parlours... so many places to choose from, you are bound to put on weight!

There are lots of activities local to the house. Walking on in the hills above Salir, surfing, paragliding, horse riding, mountain climbing, cycling, indoor swimming pool and bowling alley in Caldas da Rainha. We have provided details and contact numbers for as many activities as possible.

However if you want a restful holiday you have a large terrace on which to relax with a great view of the pool so you don't even need to move to supervise the kids!
