This large excellently maintained luxury apartment is situated on the exclusive Praia del Rey Golf and Country Club Resort. The apartments were awarded a Gold Medal for the best construction in Portugal by Home Overseas. It is fully furnished to a very high standard with an end south facing sun terrace that is not overlooked giving total privacy. All bedrooms open on to their own balconies and the apartment is centrally heated and wood burning stove for winter months.
The apartment is next to the 1st Tee also overlooking the 18th Green, Driving Range and with views to the sea. The apartment has the use of a heated communal and children's pool and is also located close to a beautiful beach. Praia del Rey is Portugal's No. 1 golf course (Peugeot) and is ranked 13th in Europe by Golf World. The Club house is located within a minutes walk and offers a restaurant, bar, snacks and lounge area with plasma screen cable TV and games room. There are also all weather tennis courts available.
Flights/Car Hire: The closest Airport is Lisbon and is serviced by flights with British Airways, Monarch, TAP and Easyjet. Booking as early as possible will enable you to get some very reasonable rates. For Car Hire it is best to book car hire before arrival and this will again secure the best rates. The drive to Praia del Rey is about 50 miles and nearly all of it is on a motorway and is very easy. If you take a taxi from the airport it will cost approx. 70-90 euros.
We do have the telephone number of a very helpful taxi driver (who speaks English well) in the village and you can phone him from this country and make a reservation and he will be at the airport to pick you up. We have always found him to be very reliable and this will be a cheaper alternative than picking up a taxi from outside the airport.
Activities: Within the Praia del Rey complex is an 18 hole Championship golf course rated No.1 in Portugal by Peugeot's 2003 guide - lessons/driving range available. Clubhouse with restaurant. 5* Marriot Hotel with restaurants, spas and fitness rooms. Seven all weather tennis courts. Childrens activity playground. Swimming pool. Beach for sunbathing or long walks. 3km is Obidos Lagoon - ideal for paddling with very small children.
Day trips to the Berlengas Islands, which is a National Park, can be taken in the summer months from Peniche.
There is also a Club Adventura for children up to the ages of 16 whereby they can undertake activities, under strict supervision from qualified staff, from surfing, sailing, paint balling, etc.
The Area: Obidos and Peniche are the two nearest towns. Obidos dates from 300BC and a world heritage town with narrow streets leading to a castle at the top of the hill surrounded by a walled town. It is very pretty with its whitewashed walls and blue paint with bourganvilla's and hanging baskets of cascading flowers. Peniche is a working fishing port where day trips to the Berlengas Islands (National Park) can be taken in summer. Other towns Bombarral (wine), Caldas da Rainha (ceramics- who supplies Harrods of London with some of their wares!, good shopping, market and restaurants), Foz do Arrelho (alternate beaches) Fatima (religious shrine) Lisbon (museums, shopping and nightlife).
We are happy to provide visitors new to the area with additional information on places to visit, restaurants, etc.
Have just returned to the apartment for our second visit and it was just as good as we remembered! Perfect loaction for golf course which was fantastic and very quiet compared to other golf resorts in September. Beach is close by and great for long walks. Food in club house (restaurant and bar) is very good and reasonably priced. Apartment is very clean and comfortable and equiipped with everything you need. Best feature is the huge balcony with barbecue which has the sun all day and there are other balconies if you prefer the shade. Obidos is a great place to visit for the day with wonderful restaurants and the lagoon is good if the sea is too cold on the local beach. Overall a great place which we would highly recommend.
Drei großzügige Schlafzimmer, riesiges Wohn-und Esszimmer, eine fantastische Terrasse und zwei kleinere Balkons, perfekt ausgestattete Küche, alles geschmackvoll und sehr sauber.
Gute Nähe zum bewachten Strand, viele Sehenswürdigkeiten und Städte in der Nähe für Tagesausflüge.
Familie war rundum zufrieden, sehr erholsamer Urlaub.
Nous avons passé une semaine haute en couleurs dans l'appartement de Mandy à Praia Del Rey entre golf, piscine, surf et mer.
Endroit résidenciel magnifique
We had our holiday planned at Praia D'el Rey after been there seven years ago with great memories, our expectations were in that respect. We are with 5, two adults with three grown ups, so there must be something "to do", especially for the kids. We rented this wonderful penthouse with great terrace's on each bedroom, spacious, therefor good for each to retreat when necessary, 2 bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen. So it was a little bit like home and it felt comfortable. There is a lot to do, at first the swimming pool downstairs, the beach at 400 m, golf, with two other golf courses at 10 min of with the Royal Obidos ( designed by Seve Ballesteros ) is awesome, lovely cities at aprox. 50 km.
We made several trips to Lisbon, and good advise is to make a trip by boat to the Berlenga Islands, anyway we loved our stay at and it its worth every penny, thanks Mandy, we had a fantastic time.
The apartment is wonderful. Quite big rooms, very well decorated, very nice furniture, but what makes it special is the terrace. No other apartment at the condo or even at PDR has such terrace. You get sun the whole day (in Portugal it is very important because otherwise it can be cold), nice views and many meters to enjoy.
My husband I and our two boys (7 &4) stayed in the apart. for two weeks, we had great holiday, aparment was really nice especially the Balcony. Apartment was big and had great facalities for the boys, swimming stuff, balls, buckets shovels, DVDs, Puzzels, board games. There is a playground,driving range and putting area ittle bit up the road which was great for us all. Lovely walks too, down to beach and really beautiful beach. Eating out in nearby Towns is very cheap though pity the club house is so expensive, 7euro for one G&T, 15Euro for a bottle of Wine that cost 4euro in resturant in Piniche. We definitly plan to go back next year. Really great holiday .
Praia del Rey is located about 1 hours drive from Lisbon on the unspoilt West Coast between the ancient towns of Obidos (World Heritage Site) and Peniche. A visit to the walled town of Obidos is a must for not only the history and views from the castle walls but also for the shopping in the narrow cobbled streets. There are also some very good restaurants within the walls of the city.
Peniche, a historic picturesque fishing town with its 16th century fortress is known for its seafood restaurants which are excellent and inexpensive.
Baleal is between Praia del Rey and Peniche and this is a very popular bay for surfers from all over the World. A welcome sheet is available, to those renting, to give you additional information about the area, restaurants, nightlife and places to visit.
Also, a visit to nearby Bombarrel to the Vineyard of Quintas de Loridos and the large Buddha garden set in the grounds with Buddha statues and terracota soldiers and their horses is excellent.
Other Activities: go-karting, historic sites
Golf: An excellent 18 hole championship golf course with a mix of links and forest holes. The course has spectacular views over the Atlantic. Tee off times can be arranged in advance at Praia del Rey and there are at least 10 other quality 18 hole courses nearby. There is a pro-shop, driving range and English professionals available to give advice and lessons. You will need an official handicap. Buggies, trolleys and clubs are all available to rent.
Golfers who've played the Praia D'El Rey course will know that it is regularly ranked not just among Portugal's top courses, but among Europe's top courses. Danish tour operators have just voted Praia D’El Rey among the top 10 courses in Europe, and we've also just learned that the US's prestigious
The Golfer magazine has now ranked us among their Top 10 in Continental Europe.
And that's not all. Famous US golfer Greg Norman has just written the foreword to a new book, Planet Golf (ed. Darius Oliver 2007) which defines the 'great golf courses outside the USA'. Only 5 Iberian courses were chosen, two of which were in Portugal. One is, Praia D'El Rey...
