About Ulf & Ilse Larsen

Owned by Ilse Hillewaert (Belgian) and Ulf Larsen (Norway). We currently live in Belgium, having lived in various parts of Europe, including a long stint in the UK, and Africa in the past 20 years. We have a 7 year old daughter who loves visiting our property in Praia d'El Rey.

Ulf & Ilse Larsen purchased this house in 2004

Why Ulf & Ilse Larsen chose Praia D'el Rey

We bought the townhouse in Vila dos Principes for several reasons. We love the Silver Coast, the beaches, the forests and the Atlantic climate. Also, the VdP condominium is an oasis with the benefits of being set in a bigger resort. Being less than 1 hour's drive from Lisbon airport and close to the towns of Obidos and Peniche are additional benefits.

What makes this house unique

With VdP set within the golf course and with a 10-15 minutes' walk to the beach we really love spending time there. The fact that it's a minute or two to walk to one of the 3 swimming pools is awesome for our daughter and any friends visiting.

Excellent Property and Location

  • 5 of 5

The property is located in a quiet area of the resort, within a short walk from the main Clubhouse. In addition it benefits from daytime security. The town house is well equipped and has all the facilities you should require. The swimming pools are within close proximity and were very clean and well maintained.

Overall having stayed on the resort before I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to friends and family.

Ideal Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

I could not recommend this villa enough! We stayed here 20th July 2017 for 7 Nights with my 2 children aged 9 & 6. If you want a quiet family holiday then this place is perfect. The Villa, complex and the 3 Pools were well serviced, beautiful and value for money. We went on trips to Obidos and Obidos Lagoon which were both within 20 minutes drive of the Villa and well worth a visit.

Séjour très agréable

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons été très satisfait de notre séjour, la maison est très spacieuse, confortable et propre, le golf resort est beau et agréable, le quartier est calme et reposant. De plus nous avons eu tout ce qu'il faut pour notre bébé, à savoir une chaise haute et un lit pliant très pratique.

Nous recommandons cette location pour tous séjours en famille ou entre amis, à refaire!

Great retreat in wonderful setting, but a drive away from the beach

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house and the condominium, both very comfortable and well appointed. It was very calm and there was lots of green and nice flowers. It was particularly nice for the children, especially the green areas and the pools! It was also useful to have the club house a couple of minutes walking from the area of the house, as they do take out. the greatest downside is the distance to the beach, which is much more than 500m; its more like 1.5km from the condo to the beach. So, you need to drive, which we originally thought we would not be doing. In fact, the exact location of the house does not match what appears in the homeaway map. Other than the distance to the beach, we loved our stay and would very much recommend the house.
