Coimbra apartment description

Situated in an attractively landscaped setting, on the top floor with views down 10th fairway of Praia del Rey's golf course to sea beyond. Equipped & furnished to a high standard with central heating for winter months. Shared swimming pool & unspoilt beach a short distance away.

Within 1 hour of Lisbon and near the enchanting medieval walled town of Obidos. Sintra, Mafra, the great abbeys of Alcobaca & Batalha are within easy reach making this an ideal base for golfers and non-golfers alike. The area is renowned for its fish and many local restaurants provide excellent food - it is still a relatively unspoilt part of Portugal.


Built in 1999 the owner has taken great care with the attractive furnishings of this light & spacious home.

The large fan-shaped living has 3 lots of windows including a triple french window leading to the balcony - with its comfortable sofa, chairs, tables, TV, DVD/CD video+ tapes, it makes for a relaxing environment. Easy parking, babysitting available.

There is a small supermarket in the complex and local shops/supermarkets within an easy drive. Praia del Rey's golf course was voted 13th best in Europe by Golf World Magazine and 'No 1 in Portugal by the Daily Telegraph 2007. Discounted green fees can be arranged through the owner of the apartment here and at other nearby courses.

                          The lovely unspoilt beach is nearby and there are marvelous opportunities for walking along the coast, in spring the wild flowers are spectacular.

                          The Lagoa d'Obidos is a short drive away and provides very safe swimming for children and the opportunity to windsurf. Picturesque Baleal offers good surfing.

                          Peniche is an ancient fishing port with most of its old defensive walls intact - a visit there to sample grilled sardines in season is a must. Drive there via Cabo Carvoeiro for spectacular coastal views. From Peniche boat trips go to the Berling Islands, a haven for wild birds.

                          Obidos is a 'pciture postcard' small medieval walled town. You can walk through its cobbled streets, climb the ramparts, browse through its many shops and try the local cherry liquer.

                          Caldas da Rainha looks fairly unprepossesing on arrival, but it does have a nice town centre and an excellent daily market selling local produce. It is famous for its ceramics.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1998

                          About the owner: I was born and brought up in the Lisbon area of Portugal, married an Englishman, went to live in UK where I had my family, but now live permanently in Cascais (just outside Lisbon). I devised and lectured on Fine Arts tours to all areas of Portugal for many years, and know the country really well, having also written part of 2 guide books. I still write and do research work out here. I am also a golfer (rather a poor one !) but do enjoy it.

                          Why the Owner Chose Coimbra:
                          I bought this property because I felt it was an area new to foreign tourism at the time, was on an excellent golf course and I LOVE the largely unspoilt coastline. It is also still a very Portuguese part of the country. My apartment is light and spacious and I thoroughly enjoy my visits to it when it is not rented out.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          Excellent position, views, spacious and airy accommodation. An area of Portugal that I love, and if one is there during the winter and the weather is not so good, there are plenty of sites of historical interest to visit. I also much enjoy the local food, particularly the fish.
