Easily accomodates and caters for 10, private, secluded, beautiful
The villa sits on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean with panoramic views of the sea. It has recently been refurbished to a very high standard. The whole side of the villa, facing the sea, was opened up with glass panels and large sliding glass doors to make the most of the stunning ocean views. The spacious open plan living area on the ground floor includes a large kitchen/dining room and a generous and comfortable lounge with limitless views of the sea. The1st floor includes 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The en-suite master bedroom with a large secluded terrace offers panoramic views of the sea.

Pedra do Ouro is a small friendly beach village. It has wide sandy beaches that go on for miles and there are beautiful treks along the coast, on the beach or along pedestrian walkways. There are special cycling and rollerblading routes along the coast and many other sporting facilities. There are several surf schools nearby. This is the location were just recently the worlds no. 1 surfer rode the largest wave in the world on the North Beach in Nazare a traditional fishing village only 10km south. Nazaré is a must to visit and offers many very good restaurants. Nearby there is wonderful Obidos and its walled castle and medieval town. The whole region is steeped in history including the cathedral in Batalha, Monastery in Alcobaca and the Leiria Fatima region. Nearby there is also the thermal waters of Monte Real. There are several wine routes in the area and for the serious shoppers Leiria has everything. Our neighbouring villages, Sao Pedro and Paredes have excellent seafood restaurants, several bars and lovely beaches. Pedra do Ouro itself hosts a beach bar, a local pub and a couple of traditional Portuguese restaurants, it's local hotel has recently reopened and also offers bar and restaurant service. We would like to make a special mention of the fabulous food and wine in Portugal and still att affordable prices.

Villa holiday at its best
About the Owner
We are a large, cosmopolitan family ranging in age from baby to senior citizen. We all meet up at the villa whenever possible,with family members arriving from Australia, the USA as well as more nearby UK and Sweden. My husband and myself have our main home in London and our family is a good mixture of Swedish, Estonian, Brazilian, English, American and Australian!
Guestbook comments from the owner
We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in this idyllic villa ! None of us wanted to leave, I can't praise it highly enough. The description doesn't do it justice - it's even better. It is fabulously light, airy, comfortable and modern, with fantastic sea views almost everywhere.
The villa was spotlessly clean and very well equipped, we had everything ( and more) that we needed. We made full use of the equipment including tennis rackets ( tennis court literally across the road) and used the bikes to enjoy the safe cycle routes along the coast......when we could tear the kids away from the pool!
Kerstin provided excellent customer service, both before and during the holiday, a minor TV query was resolved immediately; we could not have asked for more.
When we weren't enjoying the evening sunshine and BBQ'ing on the terrace, we enjoyed some great meals in the local restaurants.
This spacious villa, with it's various sitting / living areas ( outside and inside) really suits families or groups - I can't recommend it highly enough.

Villa holiday at its best
We had a wonderful time in this lovely house. Situated right besides the ocean with breathtaking views. Plenty of room for a group of 10 and the pool was great, especially for the kids. You can lay back, relax and soak up the sun or drive around. The owner has made a great overview of the surrounding places, restaurants, shops and other activities with really good and helpful suggestions. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable experience and would definitely come back for a holiday. A big thank you for everything.
A week looking out to sea
Perfect villa, perfect location, almost perfect weather. The owner was extremely helpful too.
Home from Home with a difference
As soon as we saw the villa we realised it was different. The front garden of alliums and agapanthas made the villa look more like a home than a holiday let - and we ere not disappointed inside . The villa is generously furnished with the icing on the cake being the master bedroom overlooking the sea.
Six bedrooms - all of good size, a well equipped and spacious kitchen for all to contribute to the menu and a choice of three eating spaces depending on breeze and sun !
The pool is great - big enough and deep enough for all needs and various inflatables to satisfy young and old. But best all is the view - constantly aware of the magnificent ocean and the treat of a stunning sunset over supper. Wonderful !
The settlement is a ready made tourist estate of up market villas so don't expect to be in the heart of a Portuguese community but you are within reach of some great beaches, good eating places and towns and villages which reflect Portugal's rich historical heritage.
The family both young and old had a brilliant holiday here.
Lovely modern villa stunning views over Atlantic
Lovely villa with stunning views over Atlantic. Very modern and well equipped and superbly maintained. Pedra do Ouro is a nice little place with beach bar, restaurant and another couple of bars. Nazare about twenty minutes away is excellent with all facilities. Cheap food and wine and very friendly local people. Accurate description and would definite recommend.
Lovely modern villa stunning views over Atlantic
We spent a lovely week here. The villa has glorious views over the Atlantic. The house is very modern, well equipped and luxurious. Pedra Do Ouro is a nice little village with good bars and restaurants and friendly people. The Silver Coast is a lovely area to visit. We loved Nazare.
Exceptional vacation spot
I can't say enough about this rental. I've stayed in a number of Home Away and AirBnB places, and this was the best by far. The view is breathtaking; the house is beautifully decorated; and the terraces, garden, and pool area are all exceptional. There were nine adults total and one dog, and there was plenty of space for us to chill out on our own or hang out together.
The kitchen is well-equipped with pantry staples and cooking essentials, as was the bar and grill area. And there were even bikes and helmets for guests to use, and a tennis court nearby.
It is the ideal rental for a group looking to stay along the Portuguese coast and visit the surrounding beaches and villages, or just take in the sun and a book overlooking the ocean. I highly recommended it, and I'll be looking for an excuse to return again soon. Thank you, Kerstin!
From the Owner
“After having visited this area several times a year over a long period of time in business, we decided we definitely wanted to be a more permanent part of life here. We love the outdoors and the sea and it couldn't be better than this! Although a tiny village, the social life is hectic with lunches, dinners, festivals, outings to the most wonderful historic sites, wine yards to visit, you name it! The language is easy for me as I am fluent in Portuguese. Our other family members who are not have had no problem in communicating with the local population. The Portuguese are very helpful and friendly and will always have encouraging words to say to someone struggling with a dictionary. I have to mention the lovely fish and seafood and the gorgeous wines, still at very affordable prices.”
Activity and Interests
The beach in Pedra do Ouro is right in front of our house with fishermans trails running down to the sandy beach. The main route to the beach is approximately 400 meters, 7 minutes walk, or a minute car ride. There is a genuine family run bar and restaurant, serving light meals, on the beach as well as beach volley, changing and other facilities. There is a local pub and a couple of good restaurants just around the corner from the villa as well as a convenience store. Pedra do Ouro is linked by cycling/roller-blading, by car or by walking along specially built pedestrain walkways with neighbouring Sao Pedro de Moel 4km north and Paredes 3km south. Alternatively, the wide sandy beach connects the villages and also makes a lovely walk! Here are a number of excellent seafood restaurants, bars, minimarkets, pharmacy ATM and very popular surf schools. A lilltle further away you have, Nazare, Marinha Grande and Leiria the regions capital, with fresh food markets, large supermarkets, restaurants, bars and vast varied shopping on offer. The Silver Coast is rich in archeologi from pre-historic caves to Moorish castles and Roman villages, offering a spectacular choice of sight-seeing. Portugal has 13 locations classified by UNESCO as World Heritage sites, several in this area. Among others - Tomar, Convent of Christ founded in 1163, the Monastery of Alcobaca, the beautiful cathedral in Batalha and the walled medieval town of Obidos. Natur plays a big roll in this area, with its protected pine forrests, and of course it's spectacular wide sandy beaches that just go on for miles and miles.

From the Owner
“It sits in a unique setting, with a splendid view of the Atlantic Ocean, totally uninterrupted. The sea is always changing and it is mesmerising looking at it, in calm and stormy weather. The large furnished terraces all around the villa, makes outdoor dining easy and comfortable any time, again with spectacular views. The spaciousness and layout of the villa makes it easy to accommodate 10 guests which must be a unique benefit! The villa has always worked marvellously for us and as the villa is in use most of the year, as there always seems to be someone visiting, we have made sure that it has everything that makes life easier. Such as excellent internet, cable TV, full functioning kitchen with all kinds of appliances, etc. We also hope you will like the interior decoration which is contemporary and classy. The outdoor unique benefits are of course the wide, long sandy beaches which go on for km after km and all the sporting facilities.”
