Modern holiday home at a world class golf resort. This new apartment is in the exclusive Praia d'el Rey development, the best resort in the region and one of the best in Europe. It is a few minutes to the golf clubhouse, with its view and good food, is about 300 metres to an uncrowded golden surf beach. The tennis centre is about 150 metres away. Absolutely perfect for a cheap golf and beach break in Portugal.
Obidos and Peniche are the two nearest towns. Obidos, dating from 300 BC, is a medieval walled town with narrow streets and bougainvillea covered houses leading to the castle at the top of the hill. Peniche is a working fishing port where day trips to the Berlengas islands (a national park) can be taken in summer (May to Sept). A castle, museum and excellent seafood restaurants complete the mix. Other interesting towns are Bombarral (wine), Caldas da Rainha (with a delicious family, seafood restaurant) and Foz de Arrelho. Further afield are the religious shrine at Fatima, historic Coimbra, Sintra and of course Lisbon. Lisbon is only 1 hour away and is one of the gems of Europe.
Golf: The excellent coastal 18 hole championship golf course was ranked 1st in Portugal by the Peugeot Golf Guide. It is rated 13th in Europe and 80th in the world by Golf World. This apartment is only 200 metres from the clubhouse.
The course is very beautiful. It is on the coast (links style) for half of it, and through a pine forest for the other half. There are spectacular views over the Atlantic and the Berlenga Islands beyond. The par 72 is a good test for both the high handicapped golfer as well as the more advanced player. Each hole is very different.
There is great clubhouse with excellent practice facilities including a short game practice area. The clubhouse has a beautiful view for your post-round refreshments! There are very good English speaking professionals. Buggies / carts, trolleys and clubs are all available to rent. You will need an official handicap of 28 or less for men, 36 for ladies.
There are also other very good golf courses nearby - Bom Sucesso (10 minutes), Royal Obidos ( 10 minutes), Golden Eagle (30 minutes). You can have a wonderful Portugal golf holiday here, and it is so much more authentic and peaceful than the Algarve.
Please note that wifi (internet) is available in the clubhouse and Marriott but not in the apartment.
Year Purchased: 2008
Why the Owner Chose Coimbra: This is a large, new, modern, quiet home in an excellent location in the resort. It is about 200m from the golf club, 100m from the tennis centre, the pool for the apartment is on the other side so there is no noise. The main road through the resort is on the other side so again there is no noise. It has many balconies and a peaceful view.
