Peniche: Peniche is a rugged peninsula fringed with beautiful sandy beaches, just one hour's drive north of Lisbon, Portugal's vibrant capital city. At its centre, is the old town with its narrow cobbled streets and ancient walls, lapped by the high tides. Peniche is a centre for lace-making and has an annual calendar of traditional festivals and carnivals.

There is a fabulous choice of beaches from the calm and family-friendly (Praia da Gamboa) through to great body-boarding beaches (Baleal) and the famous surfing beach of Supertubos. Excellent coastal paths for walking around the peninsula for bird-watching and Atlantic views. The nature reserve of Isle de Berlenga can be reached by boat daily from the marina.

Peniche is one of Portugal's main fishing harbours, and many of the fisherman still use small individual boats.

Fort Museum: A fascinating insight into 20th century Portuguese history. Here citizens, some of them very young high school students, were locked up and sometimes tortured if they opposed the country's dictator Salazar. In 1974, guards were dramatically overwhelmed and prisoners freed when the people of Peniche marched on the fort. Makes us look at the old citizens quite differently! Look out for squares and roads named after significant dates in Portuguese history. An excellent local history museum with wonderful ocean views.

Gastronomy of Peniche: Peniche is a gastronome's delight. Visitors will enjoy the fruits of the fertile surrounding Estramadura region - wines, olives, cheeses, meats and of course fish - the daily catch from Peniche harbour - in the many restaurants. The Municipal Market runs daily except Sundays- upstairs are marble slabs of fish brought in straight from the Atlantic.

Many cafes produce a delicious vegetable soup at lunchtime. In the evening, relax in one of the beachside bar/cafes or restaurants and watch the sun set.

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: We live in Sussex, near London. We have two children and a cat. We discovered Peniche for ourselves in 2001.

                      Why the Owner Chose Coimbra:
                      We wanted to find a place neither of us knew, and we didn't want to be dependent on a car. We stayed a few nights in Lisbon, then caught the coach to Peniche. After just a few days exploring, we realised it was the perfect place to find a house. We love the town and the people, the weather and the food! Our Portuguese friend helped us find a traditional house in need of renovation. This one was in its original condition with no indoor plumbing. He organised local contractors to moderinse the interior and within just five months, we were ready to for our first stay in Casa Azul.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Staying here means being part of the local town life, rather than being in a specially built holiday development. Yet at the same time all the visitor attractions are close by, and there is no need for a car. The best of both worlds! We like going to the indoor market and the small shops to stock up on ingredients for an evening meal, if we are not planning to eat out. All that exploring and going to the beach means we have healthy appetites in the evening! If we want to explore outside of Peniche, we can go by local bus or coach to places like Obidos and Lisbon.
