Overview

About the property

Studio, sleeps 4.

This is a luxurious, spacious studio apartment with its own American slate bed pool table that provides first class accommodation in one of the most desirable locations in Sao Martinho do Porto.

Benefiting from a fantastic view of the complex pool and situated in the heart of the town, just 2 minutes walk away from the beach; the apartment offers guests a superb location from which they can really make the most of everything Sao Martinho has to offer.

The main sleeping area has two single beds. A sofa bed in the lounge area allows sleeping facility for another 2 people, therefore the studio sleeps 4 in total. There is underground parking for the apartment and a lift up to the 3rd floor (apartment is on the 4th floor) so only one floor of stairs to climb.

This charming studio apartment has been built into the loft space of the ever-popular Bayside Resort, a development noted for its quality and for having the largest swimming pool in Sao Martinho. The apartment has been equipped and presented to an excellent standard with a genuine attention to detail. The property benefits from satellite television with over 100 channels. There are also plenty of DVDs to enjoy and Nintendo WII & games and a Play Station 2 & games.

The accommodation is perfect for couples wanting a luxurious break in this picturesque town or for families looking for a fantastic holiday that won’t break the bank. This apartment would also be ideal for anybody considering visiting the Silver Coast for a longer stay off season.

Sao Martinho Do Porto : Retaining it's Portuguese charm and character, Sao Martinho do Porto is a remarkably picturesque seaside town. The town is built around the sheltered bay that provides for safe bathing away from the strong Atlantic currents. The bay also benefits from warmer waters thanks to to its sheltered location. There are life guards on the beach during the summer and the beach is cleaned most days showing off its beautiful iridescent silver sand which is where the area gets its name. Surrounding the bay there are numerous cafés and restaurants where the majority of the food on offer is typical Portuguese (superb seafood) though there is also a very good Italian & also a Swiss restaurant along the front of the bay too. In the surrounding area a number of excellent golf courses have been built, and more are planned.

Climate & vicinity: Sao Martinho do Porto enjoys an idyllic climate that tends not to reach oppressive extremes of hot or cold. Daytime temperatures mid-summer tend to range between 26ºC and 34ºC. Mid-winter daytime temperatures typically range between 14ºC and 18ºC.

Within the vicinity of Sao Martinho is the beautiful historic town Obidos (approximately 15-20 min drive) and the Obidos lagoon. Figueira da Foz is located about 10 min drive from Sao Martinho, it overlooks the Obidos lagoon (the largest lagoon in Europe) and similarly to Sao Martinho it provides safe bathing away. Sao Martinho's neighbouring town is called Nazare , it is a typical Portuguese seaside town which offers a good number of cafés, bars and excellent restaurants.

Further details:

Many water sports are available on the beach.

There are 2 or 3 small supermarkets nearby and a larger supermarket - Intermarche (10 mins walk).

There are lots of lovely restaurants which feature Portuguese food (with English translation on request) and there are Italian restaurants too.

Our recommendations -

Acasa – Excellent service & fresh fish you can choose.

Carvalho – In Main St – Old Town centre. Level with the back of Hotel Atlantica. Very good value.

O'Farol - located on the beach itself with the best views and good value.

There is also a very good Swiss restaurant, and a great Italian along the bay.

Also try Hotel Capitao – afternoon tea on the veranda is accessed at the side/rear of the building.

There is a market daily in Sao Martinho offering fresh fruit, vegetables, fish and bread amongst other local produce (mornings only).

Car: not necessary

You can get to Sao Martinho Do Porto from Lisbon airport by coach and rail (via central Lisbon) or by car or taxi.

Driving time is around 1 hour and there are plenty of hire car companies to choose from. Alternatively if you don't want to take the car then we recommend the coach from central Lisbon which is a comfortable ride costing around 9 Euros each way. You'll need to get a taxi to the coach station from the airport which would cost around 20 Euros.

There are direct trains from Lisbon too but they have so many stops en-route to Sao Martinho Do Porto that the journey takes a much longer time than is necessary.

See for flights to Lisbon. Or alternatively you can fly to Porto (2.5 hour drive) or Faro (3.5 hour drive).

Calm and quiet holidays in beautiful place.

  • 5 of 5

We have been in Saõ Martinho do Porto in June 2013 for two weeks. It's a nice and quiet place for holidays. It has one big beach with shallow water in the centre and two others (wild and beautiful) in walking distance. The season not started fully so beaches were almost empty.

The apartment was really pretty, comfortable, clean and equipped with all necessary accessories. Pool table and TV games don't let you boring even during cloudy days. If you don't want to go to the beach you can cross the street and you are at the swimming pool where you can spend time sunbathing and swimming. Pool is quite big and very clean with free sun-beds.

In the neighborhood there's a supermarket and a couple of grocery shops. It's possible to buy an organized trip but you can easily find a bus connection to Lisbon, Porto, Fatima and other cities by yourself.

We can recommend this place for everyone who loves calm, relaxing holidays, without city rush and noise.

Gutes Apartment, aber nicht luxuriös

  • 3 of 5

Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt in dem Apartment, jedoch fehlen einige Kleinigkeiten, um das Apartment luxuriös zu nennen - wie einen Mülleimer in der Küche, Weinflaschenöffner, WLAN, mehr als 3 TV-Sender, eine nicht verkalkte und saubere Dusche (obwohl die "Party-Dusche" mit eigenem Radio und Licht schon sehr spaßig ist), eine funktionierende Toiletten-Spülung, funktionierendes HDMI-Kabel für den DVD-Player, etc.

Ansonsten ist das Studio-Apartment aber super gelegen und ist Freizeit-technisch extrem gut ausgestattet mit Poolbillard-Tisch, Wii, Playstation, diverse Spiele, DVD's. Der Gemeinschaftspool ist extrem groß und wird kaum benutzt, man hat ihn je nach Tageszeit fast für sich alleine. Der Vermieter und die Property Managerin sind auch sehr nett und gut erreichbar.
