About the Owner
About Janette Kay
We came to Sao Martinho with some friends who were buying a property. We fell in love with the place as it it reminded us of our other favourite place Cornwall, but in the sun.
We live in a small town called Ramsbottom that has fantastic walking but we love to holiday by the sea.
Janette Kay purchased this house in 2007
Why Janette Kay chose Alcobaca
The house is comfortable and spacious with all amenities near by, there is no trouble parking in summer during the busy months. It is within walking distance of the beach, town and local amenities such as the supermarket and market. The market is great for fresh produce and fish at a really reasonable price, it is where the locals shop. There is a bread shop near the market as well as a chicken shop so you don't need to venture far for all your needs.

Fantastic stay in Sao Martinho do Porto.
The property was new and the rooms very big. It's a wonderful house in a lovely place very calm. It's 15 minutes walking from the beach but that it is not a big inconvenience. Sao Martinho is lovely and the people of the village very friendly.
The house was big and spotless and the 3 bathrooms meant we could all shower quickly. The wifi meant kids could play on iPads and the availability in ps4 is just great.Nearby market sells fresh bread,pastries and fruit and veg.
The location is fantastic,close to cafés and 10 min walk from the beach. Fabulous ice-cream shop nearby selling the most marvellous ice-creams/waffles/crepes.
The kids had to most amazing time at the beaches' inflatable play in the water.
Highly recommend staying there,the owners are most reliable and helpful.
Will most certainly stay there again!!
Thoroughly enjoy the stay
We stayed at the house for 12 nights, 2 adults and 2 young children. The house is spacious, furnished to a high standard will all the necessary appliances. The children particularly liked playing in the garden and also the fact we had several barbrques during our stay.
The location of the house is ideal within an easy walk to the centre of Sao Martinho for the beach, bars, shops and restaurants. Also, there are numerous places to visit within 30 mins drive of the house.
We would definitely recommend Sao Martinho and this house for a relaxing holiday, we are looking to go back next year.
Thanks Janette and Alan for allowing us to stay.
Great place to stay
This was our second time staying at this house and in Sao martinho, we stayed last year, and once again can't fault it. Such a lovely place, lovely people and a great house to stay in. Janette and Alan who own this house are so helpful and make it so easy to book and enjoy your holiday. Thankyou once again you two for helping to make our 2015 holiday easy and enjoyable. And once again top restaurants too. Definatly would recommend to anyone wishing to holiday here.
- a very nice house
We stayed at this house at the end of the season. It is spacious and well equipped and has everything you would need for a lovely holiday.
It is a short walk to the beach - which has something for everyone, the children especially loved it and we're kept busy all day.
In all a lovely place to stay - we hope to return to very soon.
Great Holiday Location
This house is as described and more. Clean, comfortable, spacious and very well equipped. Sao Martinho do Porto is a nice little town located around a very safe horse shoe bay. There are also lots of fantastic beaches to visit along the coast both to the north and south as well as plenty on other interesting places to visit inland. Great communication from the owners who were on hand to answer any questions. We were met at the house by Alison, a very nice lady, who told us about the area and was contactable in case of any problems (we had none). Would gladly go back and would recommend to anyone visiting this part of Portugal. Great holiday, very sad to leave
