Where is it?
This property is one of the closest to the beach that you will find in the resort of Praia D'El Rey on the Silver Coast of Portugal. 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 WiFi is available in the property. 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!
