We loved this apartment. Very luxurious and the beaches amazing. We will be back! Sue and Pam, Manchester (2012)
We have just returned from 3 weeks in Apartment X. The owner has gone to great lengths to make the apartment as welcoming as possible. Incredibly comfortable beds and settees. Beautifully furnished in every way! For us "retirees" it was perfect. Mr & Mrs T Woods, Sussex (Feb2011 & May 2012!)
We went there with our 6 year old daughter and had a great time. The accommodation was absolutely fantastic with amazing beaches nearby!

From the Owner
“Plenty of apartments but none furnished like this! This property has had no shortcuts taken - we've invested in you, our guests, by ensuring you have the best possible holiday. We have bought the best beds, best linen, best fluffy white towels, luxury furnishings and quality kitchen equipment! Why settle for squeaky beds, a PVC beanbag and one rock hard two seater sofa? For the same money - or less - you can enjoy Apartment X's deluxe three and two seater sofas, with the best beds and bed linen in town for a great nights sleep!”
Activity and Interests
Sao Martinho do Porto has for centuries been a popular holiday destination for the wealthy Portuguese. It's natural shell-shaped bay provides one of the warmest and safest areas for swimming on the Silver Coast. Cobbled streets and welcoming coffee houses sit comfortably alongside marvellous restaurants and even a cocktail bar! Shops and restaurants stay open all year round so even at Christmas there is plenty to do and see!
Sao Martinho-Do-Porto has a stunning and natural shell shaped bay providing the warmest and safest waters in which to swim on the Atlantic coast. Other fabulous beaches in the area include: Salgado - a near deserted beautiful white-sanded beach, Nazare - a vast stretch of sand alongside a thriving town with plenty of bars and restaurants, Foz do Arelho - the Atlantic on one side and a calm lagoon on the other with great beach bars! Also Peniche nearby is the number one surfing spot.
The nearest airport is Lisbon, just 50 minutes away. Porto airport is a 2 hour drive. Hire car is not necessary to enjoy your stay as everything you're ever likely to need is within easy reach (max 7 mins walk!) However, we highly recommend having a car in order to fully explore this lovely part of Portugal.
The apartment is just a 7 minute walk to the beach, 5 minute walk to a large supermarket and a 2 minute walk to the farmers market for fresh local produce such as fish, fruit and vegetables. For sight see-ers, Obidos, one of Europe's most romantic medieval villages, is just 15 mins by car. Alcobaca with its ancient monastery and restaurants overlooking the charming main square, is just 20 min by car.
The apartment and its location has everything you'll need for a fabulous holiday providing easy access to everything.
However, we also suggest you try and go further a field too as the variety of things to do and see in the area is endless. Horse riding, cycling, golf, swimming, paragliding, boat trips, surfing etc. Within the village itself, there is a bank, restaurants, a large supermarket, hairdressers and even a place for afternoon tea and cake! Oh and a cocktail bar! Sao Martinho is a seafood lovers dream where the catch of the day can be eaten as you look out over the water. It you want to go cosmopolitan for the day, then don't forget the colourful and vibrant city of Lisbon, Portugal's capital city, is only 50 minutes away by car and 1hr 30 mins by bus (pick up is from the centre of Sao Martinho-do-Porto). After a vibrant city visit full of tram rides, live music, museums and shops, you can then retreat back to your seaside village haven and luxury accommodation! Grutas da Moeda: (Coin Caves) are situated just outside the nearby town of Fatima. And we think these stunning limestone caves are well worth a visit too!
