Previous visitors comments: 'Just to let you know we had an excellent week in Praia D'El Rey. Your travel directions, restaurant/food guides were superb and the area was as good as I had heard. The weather and surf spoilt us all week, the villa was perfect and it was shame to spend such little time there.'
'Just wanted to say thanks for the stay in the villa. It was a beautiful place and we all had a fantastic time.'
'It was just right for us and the children. Your managing agents had provided us with exactly the cot and highchair we would have wished for - thank you very much indeed ! The house was immaculate when we took it over. The welcome pack was excellent.'

                                  The Praia D’El Rey complex comprises 200 hectares of pine-forested terrain and sand dunes fronting a 2.5km long beach. Local places of interest include Obidos, a medieval walled town (15 minutes’ drive) with several good restaurants; Lisbon, an hour’s drive, with all the attractions of an ancient European capital; Caldas da Rainha, a market town 20 minutes drive north, providing many cultural interests, good shopping and restaurants as does Peniche, a fishing port 15 minutes to the southwest. Boat trips to the Berlenga Islands, a nature reserve renowned for its birds, sea life and diving, can be taken from Peniche harbour. Baleal is a 'surfers heaven' and is 15 mins from the villa. It is possible to hire all the gear and have tuition at several surf camps. The variety of restaurants in the area is endless with all price points being covered.

                                  Golf: The Praia D'El Rey course has been voted best in Portugal twice by the Peugeot Golf Guide. It has spectacular views of the ocean from the holes above the cliffs and it provides a challenge to both experienced and novice golfers. The English pro is there to give lessons and there is a driving range and practice ground available. There are several other golf courses within easy driving distance. A set of clubs and a trolley are provided with the villa, extra sets (including left handed ones), trolleys and buggies can be hired from the golf office.

                                   

                                  Owner info

                                  Year Purchased: 2004

                                  About the owner: The owner, Fergus, lives in London and often flies to Praia del Rey for some sunshine golf. He is the third generation of the family to play golf and with two very young sons is intending to introduce them to the game.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Coimbra:
                                  After spending 6 holidays in Praia del Rey we decided it was time to buy our own property! The golf course is one of the best in Portugal and the house is in a great position to watch golf as well as play. It overlooks the tenth fairway and green but there is no danger of stray balls reaching the garden or house. We have had non golfing members of the family to visit and they found plenty to do. The teenagers went to Surf school at Baleal, the Foodies went to the fish and produce markets in Peniche and Caldas de Rainah and the 10 year old joined the activity club run by the Golf Club.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                  The view of the tenth fairway and green decided us to buy the house. After playing it is fun to sit with a glass of wine and watch the golfers trying to get their ball onto the green and not in the pond that protects the green. It seems such an easy game when you are watching with a glass of wine in your hand!
