Townhouse in Praia del Rey, Silver Coast, Portugal - Peaceful Location, 1 Minute Walk To The Beach
This is a spacious, high quality townhouse which is located in the Vila da Praia Beach Village area of Praia D'El Rey. The townhouse has been furnished and equipped to a very high standard. It has two very large terrace balconies (one off the living area and one off the master bedroom), where you can enjoy the spectacular, uninterrupted views of the Atlantic Ocean, beach and wonderful sunsets. The beach is only 1 minute walk away so you couldn't be any closer! There is a shared pool right beside the townhouse and two other pools within 5 minutes walk.

Fantastic location for first Silver Coast holiday
About the Owner
About Louise Carroll
Hello there! We are a family of four based in Ireland. We have enjoyed coming to this part of Portugal for the past ten years and purchased our townhouse in 2008. With two small children we unfortunately don't get to play much golf (!) but we find there is an abundance of activities and things to do in the area. It's a real chill out holiday and we enjoy nothing better than having a glass of wine on the balcony watching the fantastic sunsets and listening to the sound of the ocean.
Louise Carroll purchased this house in 2008
Why Louise Carroll chose Obidos
Our reasons for buying here were pretty simple. We wanted somewhere that was quiet, not as touristy or as hot as the Algarve and somewhere beside the sea. We have got all this and much more.
What makes this house unique
We really believe we have one of the best locations in the resort. We are so close to the beach and the views are truly stunning. The house is really comfortable and if you like to cook, we have equipped the kitchen with every cooking utensil we could think of! We are very fortunate in this part of the resort in that we are only one minute walk away from the Praia da Villa Square where you will find Argento which is a well priced Italian restaurant/bar with welcoming staff and great views of the ocean and the Saturday evening sunset market which is held in the summer. The latest event in this location was an open air cinema which was enjoyed by young and old alike. We never tire of coming to Praia D'El Rey and really love it here. We hope you will too!

Fantastic location for first Silver Coast holiday
Myself, my husband and 2 kids had an absolutely amazing holiday based in this fabulous townhouse. It is situated right on the most beautiful beach and the house itself has spectacular views from both of the very sizeable terraces. The kids adored the huge hammock on the downstairs terrace! We were brought directly to the townhouse by Priscilla upon check in, rather than being left to find our own way, and anything additional we requested was provided without question. I would most definitely recommend this place, a fantastic setting to recharge the batteries. There is a beautiful restaurant, practically next door, and we had almost exclusive use of the pool which is also literally 5 steps from the house. We'll definitely be back, delighted to have found this little gem!!
Fabulous family holiday!
Myself husband and 3 boys stayed in this beautiful townhouse for 2 weeks.
It was very spacious & comfortable.
WiFi was excellent. ( very important for teenagers!!)
Amazing views from the balcony.
Beach & pool ideally located from the house. Enjoyed excellent golf.
Also very good restaurant a minutes walk from the house.
Lots of lovely places to visit on the silver coast. Would definitely recommend it & hopefully will return.
Fabulous family holiday!
Myself, husband & 3 boys had a terrific holiday. The house is very spacious & comfortable. Gorgeous views from the balcony! Surrounded by excellent golf courses. Also enjoyed really good food in Argento right beside the house. Perfect WiFi very important for teenagers!!
Would definitely recommend it & hope to return.
My husband and I ended our trip to Portugal with a stay on the Silver Coast. Renting the beautiful townhouse on the beach was a perfect ending to our vacation. Sunsets were lovely, yoga on the beach daily, pool so near - it was just right for total relaxation before coming back home to the States. We will be back.
What a Beautiful Place
My family including 2 boys aged 11 and 7 had a fantastic holiday in Peter & Louise's beach apartment. It has everything and more required for a relaxing and fun holiday and is ideally based for touring this beautiful region. This was our first visit to the Silver Coast and will not be our last. The sunsets are amazing and waking to the sounds of the waves is priceless! Loads of activities to keep all ages happy and beautiful beaches like Baleal and Peniche within 10mins - Thanks again Louise & Peter for making our annual holiday a one to remember and for arranging everything so smoothly from the moment of first contact !!
A great week
We spent a great week at Praya del Rey last may. The weather was sunny and warm and everything was perfect.
First of all, the apartment is nice and confortable. Everything is already there so we didn't need to bring too many things in the luggage.
From the apartment's balcony, the view of the seaside is great and the sunset in the evening is wonderful. You'll love to have a beer or a glass of red local wine in front of it. To go the beach, it.s only a 3' walk !
We have a 1,5 year old boy and he enjoyed playng with the toys and for us, the protection fence for the stairs was a real plus to let him play in the living room without any danger.
Last but not least, thank you very much to Louise Carroll who provided us with useful information and tried make things as simple as possible so that we could prepare and enjoy our stay.
For us, it´s definitely a 10 !
We hope you'll enjoy your stay as much as we did.

Activity and Interests
This property is one of the closest to the beach that you will find in the resort. You will be on the beach in less than a one minute walk. The beach stretches for miles and even in peak season is never busy or overcrowded. There are several other beaches in the area such as the award winning surfing beaches of Baleal/Peniche/Foz.
Praia D'El Rey is a one hour drive on the motorway from Lisbon Airport. Porto is a 2.5 hr drive and Faro is 3-4 hrs. Car hire is advisable. Full directions to the property are provided.
Serra D'El Rei and Obidos lagoon, 5 minute drive. Obidos and Peniche, 10km. Baleal, 7 km. Foz da Arello, 20km. Caldas da Rainha, 30 mins drive. Sintra, Cascais, Estoril and Fatima approx. 1 hr drive. Vineyards of the region, 10-30km. There are ten 18 hole golf courses within an hour's drive.
There is a grocery shop and restaurant right beside the house. There are several supermarkets and restaurants in the towns close by. Obidos Lagoon is only a 5 min drive and several other beaches such as the award winning surfing beaches of Baleal/Peniche/Foz are all nearby. The Berlengas Islands nature reserve can be visited by boat from Peniche and are an ideal location for scuba diving. There is a wide variety of activities such as water sports, bike rental, go karting, bowling etc. There is a sailing school in Foz. There is also a tennis academy within the resort with 7 tennis courts. The medieval town of Obidos is well worth a visit with its medieval festival in July, Opera in August and a chocolate festival in the Spring. Caldas da Rainha is 30 mins away and has lovely shops and a great farmers market every day. Lisbon is only an hour's drive. This area is also one of the major wine producing areas of Portugal and wine caves and vineyards are only 10-30km away. The 5 star Marriott hotel has 3 restaurants and a very good spa and is an easy walk along the beach. There is also a courtesy shuttle bus available in the resort which will bring you to/from the clubhouse, tennis club and hotel. There is a restaurant and bar food available at the clubhouse. During the summer months there is an adventure club for kids and adults which runs activities such as surfing lessons, football, paint balling, tennis etc. Free Wi-Fi available at restaurant beside house, the tennis courts, clubhouse and hotel. This area is very different to the Algarve. It is much less touristy and being on the Atlantic Ocean, does not have the extreme heat experienced in the Algarve during the summer months. If bars and nightclubs are your thing, then this place is not for you! However if you are looking for a relaxing, beach based holiday with a wide range of other amenities, then look no further!
