Car: Necessary

Coast / Beach: About a 10 - 15 minute walk from the house there are miles of unspoilt and very quiet sandy beaches - great for walking and popular for surfing. A 10 minute drive in one direction takes you to the small town of Baleal with some great beach bars and small restaurants and a very safe beach with its own surf schools and life guards. A 10 min dirve in the other direction takes you to the Lagoa de Obidos with shallow tidal waters - great for anything from paddling to rock-pooling to wind surfing and my newest addiction - paddle boarding!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We live in the UK and have our holiday home in Praia d'El Rey. As a family we have been coming to Portugal since we were young children 30+ years ago and have always loved the kindness of the Portuguese people and the beauty of the country. Since growing up and now having young families of our own, we love being able to spend time at our house in Portugal. We like to explore, have a bit of beach time - all the children have learned to surf and play golf in the last couple of years - and pool fun and relaxation. We adore the food and culture of Lisbon but more than anything, have found that this is the one holiday destination where we truly relax.

Why the Owner Chose Coimbra:
We bought the house here in Praia d'El Rey because it still feels like the 'real' Portugal in this area. It doesn't have the intense heat of the Algarve, but regularly hits 30 degrees in the summer - plenty hot enough with our young children! The beaches are fabulous - miles and miles of sand, and many of those miles with hardly a soul on them - and with our family members being keen tennis players, golfers and surfers, there is masses for us to do in the area. We have explored the immediate vicinity and love the beaches, restaurants, small pretty towns, and further afield have rather fallen in love with Lisbon. We have yet to explore Porto - maybe next year. For teens, as well as the golf and tennis, there is a go-karting, paint balling, bowling, sailing, surfing and a vibrant night life in the nearby towns of Ferrel and Baleal.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The house is well laid out. We usually go on our own as a family of 4 or with another family, when each family can have a floor to themselves, or the adults can be on one floor with all the children on another. We have set the house up to be flexible in this way - with twins made up as a superking bed on the ground floor if required. We had the pool heated about 7 years ago and don't regret that for a second. Unheated pools on the resort can be very chilly and I for one prefer a balmy 29 degrees before I will swim! We like to keep things simple when we are in our home from home. Some good music on, getting the guitar out, or grabbing wetsuits and heading down to the beach for a surf then a bbq with friends when we get back, and a movie for the kids - a perfect way to spend a holiday!
