Coimbra apartment description

This large excellently maintained luxury apartment is situated on the exclusive Praia del Rey Golf and Country Club Resort. The apartments were awarded a Gold Medal for the best construction in Portugal by Home Overseas. It is fully furnished to a very high standard with an end south facing sun terrace that is not overlooked giving total privacy. All bedrooms open on to their own balconies and the apartment is centrally heated and wood burning stove for winter months.
The apartment is next to the 1st Tee also overlooking the 18th Green, Driving Range and with views to the sea. The apartment has the use of a heated communal and children's pool and is also located close to a beautiful beach. Praia del Rey is Portugal's No. 1 golf course (Peugeot) and is ranked 13th in Europe by Golf World. The Club house is located within a minutes walk and offers a restaurant, bar, snacks and lounge area with plasma screen cable TV and games room. There are also all weather tennis courts available.


Flights/Car Hire: The closest Airport is Lisbon and is serviced by flights with British Airways, Monarch, TAP and Easyjet. Booking as early as possible will enable you to get some very reasonable rates. For Car Hire it is best to book car hire before arrival and this will again secure the best rates. The drive to Praia del Rey is about 50 miles and nearly all of it is on a motorway and is very easy. If you take a taxi from the airport it will cost approx. 70-90 euros.
We do have the telephone number of a very helpful taxi driver (who speaks English well) in the village and you can phone him from this country and make a reservation and he will be at the airport to pick you up. We have always found him to be very reliable and this will be a cheaper alternative than picking up a taxi from outside the airport.

Activities: Within the Praia del Rey complex is an 18 hole Championship golf course rated No.1 in Portugal by Peugeot's 2003 guide - lessons/driving range available. Clubhouse with restaurant. 5* Marriot Hotel with restaurants, spas and fitness rooms. Seven all weather tennis courts. Childrens activity playground. Swimming pool. Beach for sunbathing or long walks. 3km is Obidos Lagoon - ideal for paddling with very small children.
Day trips to the Berlengas Islands, which is a National Park, can be taken in the summer months from Peniche.
There is also a Club Adventura for children up to the ages of 16 whereby they can undertake activities, under strict supervision from qualified staff, from surfing, sailing, paint balling, etc.

The Area: Obidos and Peniche are the two nearest towns. Obidos dates from 300BC and a world heritage town with narrow streets leading to a castle at the top of the hill surrounded by a walled town. It is very pretty with its whitewashed walls and blue paint with bourganvilla's and hanging baskets of cascading flowers. Peniche is a working fishing port where day trips to the Berlengas Islands (National Park) can be taken in summer. Other towns Bombarral (wine), Caldas da Rainha (ceramics- who supplies Harrods of London with some of their wares!, good shopping, market and restaurants), Foz do Arrelho (alternate beaches) Fatima (religious shrine) Lisbon (museums, shopping and nightlife).
We are happy to provide visitors new to the area with additional information on places to visit, restaurants, etc.

                  Praia del Rey is located about 1 hours drive from Lisbon on the unspoilt West Coast between the ancient towns of Obidos (World Heritage Site) and Peniche. A visit to the walled town of Obidos is a must for not only the history and views from the castle walls but also for the shopping in the narrow cobbled streets. There are also some very good restaurants within the walls of the city.

                  Peniche, a historic picturesque fishing town with its 16th century fortress is known for its seafood restaurants which are excellent and inexpensive.

                  Baleal is between Praia del Rey and Peniche and this is a very popular bay for surfers from all over the World. A welcome sheet is available, to those renting, to give you additional information about the area, restaurants, nightlife and places to visit.

                  Also, a visit to nearby Bombarrel to the Vineyard of Quintas de Loridos and the large Buddha garden set in the grounds with Buddha statues and terracota soldiers and their horses is excellent.

                  Other Activities: go-karting, historic sites

                  Golf: An excellent 18 hole championship golf course with a mix of links and forest holes. The course has spectacular views over the Atlantic. Tee off times can be arranged in advance at Praia del Rey and there are at least 10 other quality 18 hole courses nearby. There is a pro-shop, driving range and English professionals available to give advice and lessons. You will need an official handicap. Buggies, trolleys and clubs are all available to rent.

                  Golfers who've played the Praia D'El Rey course will know that it is regularly ranked not just among Portugal's top courses, but among Europe's top courses. Danish tour operators have just voted Praia D’El Rey among the top 10 courses in Europe, and we've also just learned that the US's prestigious

                  The Golfer magazine has now ranked us among their Top 10 in Continental Europe.

                  And that's not all. Famous US golfer Greg Norman has just written the foreword to a new book, Planet Golf (ed. Darius Oliver 2007) which defines the 'great golf courses outside the USA'. Only 5 Iberian courses were chosen, two of which were in Portugal. One is, Praia D'El Rey...
