About David Owen

We are David and Elizabeth. We both enjoy Portugal but were looking for somewhere a little less commercial and British than the Algarve. We found this on the wonderful Silver Coast. Unfortunately we have to work otherwise the apartment in Foz would be occupied by us year round.

David Owen purchased this apartment in 2008

Why David Owen chose Foz do Arelho

Village centre location, near restaurants and bars, but very quiet. We love sitting on the balcony looking out over the rooftops of Foz.

Foz Village retreat

  • 4 of 5

Having stayed around this area for many years we were looking forward to actually staying in the village. We were not disappointed. 3 super markets and a butchers enabled us to get all our shopping done without the need for a car. Caf? central is very convenient but a lesson in pizza making is needed. We used it the evening of our arrival day for convenience then not again. Instead try the tapas restaurant on the corner before you walk down to the beach. A great selection and very reasonably priced. It is a 10 minute walk down to the first part of the beach which offers lovely lagoon views and sheltered bathing via the pay for tents. Worth every penny and we took a lagoon facing one every day. Down to the rest of the beach bars takes another 5-10 minutes (with a 5 year old) but a pleasant walk looking at the sea and lagoon. This was our first visit in peak season and although busier than usual it was still more than calm. Just don?t try and park after midday, walk.

The apartment was as described and the balcony actually larger than the pictures suggest. More than comfortable for a family of 4 to BBQ and relax. The villa was clean and felt very safe, modern and well appointed. There are stairs to the apartment but the staircases are constantly turning and have 3-5 steps each time so it doesn?t feel like you are walking up many stairs. Not a problem each day for us even with child and shopping. Television was modern and free sat gives you sufficient channels for a holiday. DVD player supplied if needed. Only request from us with smart phones and ipads was to offer wi-fi in the future.

Having the village location meant very quiet evenings, as the apartment is right in the heart of the small twisting and turning road come alleys. Parking outside or nearby was never a problem either.

Would we return? Yes is the easy answer to that. Great location, great accommodation and at a great price.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words concerning the apartment. We would like to offer wi-fi but given the price for a year round supply compared to the frequency of occupation we would have to pass the cost on to our guests and then the price may not be as competitive. However, the beach front bars do offer free wi-fi should you need it. We hope you get the chance to visit us again. Elizabeth and David

Muito boa experiência, correspondeu às expectativas

  • 4 of 5

Adoramos a experiência, um local bastante sossegado, o que é ótimo para recuperar energias, com uma boa localização, pois encontra—se perto da praia (3min de carro) e de outros sítios a visitar, como Peniche e S.Martinho do Porto. Esse era o nosso objetivo e a escolha foi a melhor. A casa é acolhedora, pois apesar de não ter grandes divisões, tem o ideal para férias, principalmente a varanda com churrasqueira.
