Buarcos apartment description
The apartment is on Portugal's silver coast. It has 3 double Bedrooms one with balcony, 2 Bathrooms, a Large Lounge with a dining area and balcony, a large Kitchen / Dining room with fireplace, and a garage. It is 5 minutes walk to the superb Blue Flag beach, 15 minutes drive to the beautiful fresh water lagoon and a 10 minute drive to the well equipped and well managed seasonal water park. The apartment is backed by the Pinhal de Leiria - the Royal Forest, a vast 700 year old forest planned by the King Dom Dinis over 700 years ago. The village is a quiet location with all the necessary day to day amenities, but only 15 minutes for the new A17 motorway.
Pinhal de Leiria and its beaches: Some of the most idyllic spots on the stretch of coast west of Leiria are in the Pinhal de Leiria a vast 700 year old pine forest stretching from Sao Pedro de Moel to Pedrogao. Since its planting this forest has grown into an area of great natural beauty, with sunlight filtering through endless miles of trees and the air perfumed with the scent of pine resin. All the beaches and lagoons in this area are superb, largely spared development and with pollution free bathing.
Pedrogao is close to the many highlights of the region Obidos - a superb medieval walled town, Nazare - a simply classic seaside resort, Alcobaca - 12th century monastery, Grutas de Mira de Aire - the most spectacular underground caves in the country, Fatima - one of the Catholic Churches most popular shrines, Tomar - Home to the knights Templar and the Manueline Convento , Batalha - Battle Abbey a UNESCO world monument, Coimbra a beautiful University town, the Ribatejo vineyards and several National Parks.
Activities: The area is ideal for long walks in the forest, on the beach or in the adjacent hills. Several golf courses are within easy reach of Pedrogao inc. the best golf course in Portugal Praia del Rey, voted 13th in Europe and in the Worlds top one hundred. Outdoor, Indoor swimming pools and water parks are available 10 minutes drive away. Surfing is also popular at all the resorts along the silver coast.
The cost of living in this part of Portugal is low, so your euro goes much further

My family of 2 children and i stayed in the Silvercoast Beach apartment in September 09 and had a fantastic holiday. The accomodation is clean and well maintained and of good quality and is also in a good location. The resort area itself was ideal for us and we will definitely be returning this year !

Review of apartment in Pedrogao
Review of apartment in Pedrogao
The apartment was good value for money: spacious, light, and within a very short walk of the beach. While we stayed at the apartment the toilet in one of the bathrooms leaked when flushed. This causes a puddle behind the toilet and an awful smell. The hot water plumbing and heating were very poor. If the weather had not been warm, it could have become very annoying not being able to have a reliable hot shower. The owner should fix the toilet and plumbing. Check on whether this has been done before choosing to rent here. Although the apartment was a short walk from the beach, it was not located overly well. There was no view, limited space on the balcony to sit out, no space outside to pleasantly sit, no garden. There was no where to BBQ. The resort of Pedrogao has a fabulous beach of it's own, and is well located for many miles of other beaches. The beaches are very well managed with life-guards, showers, etc. They were delightful. The resort has many cafes/bars/restaurants. There were many choices of excellent fish, and a few meat options too. While the cuisine was always edible and generally tasted good, it was invariably served without style and presentation: fish was always accompanied by boiled potatoes and veg.; meat always with chips; etc. The restaurants were good values for money, but will not be remembered for their cuisine. The daily market in Pedrogao was superb. An excellent choice of fruit, vegetables, meats, cheeses and probably also of fish was available. I recommend making day trips to: Tomar, Nazare, Obidos. There were a few minor short comings which the owner could easily remedy: 1. The kitchen could be better equipped. More utensils, especially sharp knives for preparing meat, vegetables, salads, etc. A method for filter coffee would be good. 2. The apartment had a visitor's information folder. This was exceptionally short of information on the resort itself. It would have benefited from, amongst other things: a map of the resort; a list of restaurants/cafes/shops with ratings/costs/locations/etc.; times/distances to places of interest; etc. There are likely many lovely walks in the extensive pine forests of the area, but there was no information on these, neither in the apartment, nor at the tourist office. 3. It would have been preferable to have supplied more than one set of keys for a six-person apartment. 4. It was not obvious where one was supposed to park.

Owner response: Thank you for confirming that the apartment wasspacious, light and good value for money and that Pedrogao's beaches are fabulous . Our advert does not claim that the apartment has sea views, but it is only five minutes walk to the beach. The plumbing has been purdged and the water pressure increased. The toilet leak was repaired as soon as it was pointed out. Outside the property we have a garage, a parking space and space to BBQ. Portugal is a laid back country and as such printed details of walks in the woods, picnic areas and the layout of the town are limited - we suggest having a scout round, visiting the tourist information centre ( centre village ), the municipal market ( north end ) and most of all having a bit of a wander . I confirm that we are open to any visitor request either before or during your visit. Please email me Andrew or phone me and ask anything - thanks.
We like very mutch staing in this apartment in Pedrogão. It was full of space and while we were a big family we had arranged very well to stay there. The price is very good related to the time we spend there. We considered to repit the experience. We are Portuguese and we have already knowing the place and the beach. The apartment is near to the beach, more or less 5 minutes, só it's ok to us to walk there, drink a coffe before and then go to the beach.... I recomend! Family Jorge
