More about us

  1. We are a very active family of 4 from Ireland, living in Dublin.As our children are now in their early twenties, we generally holiday as a couple. The apartment in Portugal is a second home, so a non-simultaneous exchange would be fine for us. We love exploring new places. Main interests are running, golf, tennis,walking (rugby and flyfishing). We also appreciate good food and service. While we do enjoy visiting new places and rarely go back to the same place repeatedly, places we have returned to on more than one occasion are Scotland, USA (particularly Boston and New England area ), The Alps, West of Ireland and Donegal. We fell in love immediately with the Praia De'El Rey resort and surrounding area immediately because there was something for everyone - amazing golf course, spectacular unspoilt scenery, sport for all, activities and company for the kids as well as five star facilities, good restaurants, history, culture and the exceptional friendliness of the local Portuguese people.

    Aisling and I (Cathryn) are competitive runners and usually enjoy training when away on breaks,so it is generally a priority that there is good running in the vicinity of wherever we stay. It is usually our preference to be able to run from the house. We all find that running is a great way of exploring new areas and of really appreciating the scenery!
    We are currently looking for somewhere on
    Lake Garda, Italy late Sptember/October 2021., or another lake/mountain area in Italy or Austria. We also like to do a few trips to the UK at any time of year, anything from a long w/end to a week in for example the Cotswolds, Devon, Cornwall, Lake District, Scotland, Wales (Snowdonia). Other places of particular interest to us would be Croatia, Italy, Austria, Greece. and Maastricht, Netherlands.

  2. Pascal works in the pharma industry and Cathryn is a career & performance coach.

  3. We love variety in our holidays, with lots of outdoor activity, combined with good food, wine and comfortable accomodation!

The Costa de Prata is located between Lisbon and Oporto, with the country's largest motorway (the A1) crossing it in the north-south direction is Central Portugal and its Silver Coast. 2 of the most appreciated aspects of the area are the mild temperatures and the white sandy beaches which offer the choice between practicing water sports and the calm life of the seaside.

The curative springs and the lush vegetation of secular forests have preserved all the rewards of their unspoilt nature. The convents, monasteries, castle, museums and churches witness the historic and artistic heritage of renowned universal value.
