Caldas Da Rainha house description

Beautiful villa, light, airy, spacious in immaculate condition . Set in the picturesque tranquil town of Sao Martinho. Why squeeze everyone into a small property when we offer 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.This area is very suitable for family and romantic holidays as this AA rated beach (top 12 beach in Portugal) gently slopes with lots of golden sand. Enjoy a romantic evening stroll on the promenade. Let the children enjoy climbing the nearby sand dunes the largest approx 50m. This area is still very unspoilt and offers great value for money. Enjoy meeting the locals and sitting watching the world go by at one of the beach front cafes. Enjoy a meal and a few drinks in the evening and leave the car at home. A fully equipped kitchen, outdoor BBQ, deck and large table allows self-catering and outdoor living. The Silver Coast offers the genuine Portuguese holiday with unspoilt countryside and towns. Lots of sights to see and things to do something for everyone, pool, sun, culture & history.

Pool : This property includes a pool which is shared with 5 other properties. In our experience our guests have almost a private pool as the majority of the residents are Portuguese and go to work everyday. The pool has steps and gradually slopes to a depth of 1.6m. We provide various ball and toys for children to use in the pool. The pool is at the end of the complex about 30m from the house and is south facing getting the sun all day long.

Closed condo great base for beach & day trips: The house is in a small closed private condominium of only six houses. The gates are locked and are therefore very safe for families and small children. We provide both electronic fob plus keys for side gate. The house has a designated parking space within the small complex, there is extra parking outside which we have found to be very safe. The pool is accessed through a small gate which we recommend you keep closed for the safety of small children.

There great places and historic sites to visit as day trips. The heritage town of Obidos is only 15 min drive from the house, 5 min further on from there is Buddha Eden and Loridos vineyards, Buddha Eden is a 35 hectare site with giant Buddha, terracotta soldiers and beautiful walks, in the grounds of vineyards. Other places to visit are Alcobaca, Batalha, Peniche, Nazare, Fatima and Marinha Grande (hand blown glass demonstrations) to name a few. There is always something to do.

Location - beach & retaurants: The house is about 800m from the town and beach though if you are bringing a lot of equipment to the beach we suggest you drive. The beach is very accessible you can choose to go to the busy end in Sao Martinho which has beach huts, showers, etc., or further around the bay where it is quieter and less crowded. There is a board walk which stretched for 1.5kms, providing a lovely walk in late evening to watch the sun setting over the bay. There is a lovely local cafe/restaurant 3mins walk from the house which is extremely reasonable €5-6 for main course, €1 for a starter, beer 80c. There is an excellent more up market restaurant 5 min walk from the house which again is very reasonable. Portuguese food is very similar to northern European cuisine with lots of fish, meat, chips, potatoes, salad and veg. There is a huge variety of restaurants and cafes in the town a 10-15min walk away.
