The best surfing spot in Europe: Baleal beach is boasting the reputation of being known as one of the best if not the best area to surf in Europe. In October is the Rip Curl World Surfing championships right on our stretch of beach in front of my house. All year round is great for surfing because the temperature is good and the waves are spectacular. There are lots of surf schools if you are a beginner and we can arrange lessons for you as we know good qualified teachers locally.
The area is very natural and unspoilt, beautiful and relaxing.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2006

                              About the owner: I am an actress from England and I am currently living in Portugal because I wanted to give my daughter some freedom to grow up away from the busy often tough streets of Hackney, London. I teach drama and Performing arts here to mainly Portuguese kids in a city called Caldas da Rainha. There are English speaking students as well so that helps me a lot. I love the natural unspolit beauty here in the Silver Coast area and the nature is wonderful. The sea and coast line here is very dramatic and it attracts more and more surfers every year with a growing reputation of one of the best places to surf in Europe. I like to train and keep fit and there are lots of great runs or cycle paths here you can take and follow. And if you go to one of the horse riding centres they can take you out on hacks for miles all through the wonderful countryside. This definately has been a great 6 years living here, I wouldn't change the experience for anything.

                              Why the Owner Chose Coimbra:
                              Well I choose this property because of its amazing location definately. All round there are sea views. The cliffs and rocks are just 2 minutes walk from my house. Sometimes the landscape and scenery from the sea to the land is so dramatic its like a moving work of art. Early morning you see the tiny, little fishing boats navigate there way out to sea to go catch their daily dinner and you see the divers looking for lobster and the old and young alike on the rocks collecting all sorts of strange and wonderful shellfish. My dog came back from the rocks once with a starfish the size of a small pig, it was very beautiful and being a vegetarian and animal lover I had to be super brave and carry it back down to the rocks and give it back a safe home tucked quietly away from more playful dogs eyes. The view is priceless and I feel blessed when I look out across to the sea and not a dirty dusty London bus lane!

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Breathing fresh air, having more time to create, write and develop the ideas I want to one day bring to light and produce myself as a performer. Eating fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables that is grown and produced locally. Forgot to mention the enless wonderful cheeses, types of bread, wines and Ports! If you want extra cleaning it can be aranged with my cleaner who is 100% trust worthy for just 6 euros per hour and she works very fast because she knows my house well as she has been cleaning it for several years. She does get very busy in the summer so it's good to know in advance ifyou would like her. If you would like some fitness and personal training I can arrange for you to work with one of the best fitness and nutrition experts in Portugal with over 20 years experience. You can work individually or in a pair for 25 euros per hour. If you would like surfing lessons or to hire equipment I can arrange this for you also through one of the best and longest running surf schools in Baleal. It is better to book a taxi locally to come from the airport to Baleal than to get one at the airport, it's cheaper. I can arrange this for you also if you don't plan to hire a car or get the buses. If you want the buses you have to go to the site for Rede Expresso in Campo Grande or Sete a Rios bus stations in Lisbon. The get the bus for Peniche and then a local taxi.
