Property description

Casa Azul is a modernized traditional house in the Old Town of Peniche. Situated in a quiet road, all amenities are within easy walking distance - the marina, stunning beaches, coastal paths, historic attractions, restaurants, cafés, market, and coach station for Lisbon. Step inside to the spacious open-plan living, dining and kitchen areas, fully equipped and with satellite TV. Downstairs toilet and separate laundry room. Outside there is a good-sized terrace with barbecues for relaxed al fresco dining. Upstairs are two double bedrooms (one with a balcony, the other with an optional further single bed); the third bedroom has a single bed. Good-sized shower room with toilet and basin. Breakfasts are easy because fresh pastries and bread can be bought at the nearby bakeries, many of which have cafés if you prefer to eat out. Rental price includes linen, cleaning and the services of our on-call housekeeper. Helpful guide to area provided by experienced and knowledgable owners. A comfortable house in a great location. No car necessary.


Peniche: Peniche is a rugged peninsula fringed with beautiful sandy beaches, just one hour's drive north of Lisbon, Portugal's vibrant capital city. At its centre, is the old town with its narrow cobbled streets and ancient walls, lapped by the high tides. Peniche is a centre for lace-making and has an annual calendar of traditional festivals and carnivals.

There is a fabulous choice of beaches from the calm and family-friendly (Praia da Gamboa) through to great body-boarding beaches (Baleal) and the famous surfing beach of Supertubos. Excellent coastal paths for walking around the peninsula for bird-watching and Atlantic views. The nature reserve of Isle de Berlenga can be reached by boat daily from the marina.

Peniche is one of Portugal's main fishing harbours, and many of the fisherman still use small individual boats.

Fort Museum: A fascinating insight into 20th century Portuguese history. Here citizens, some of them very young high school students, were locked up and sometimes tortured if they opposed the country's dictator Salazar. In 1974, guards were dramatically overwhelmed and prisoners freed when the people of Peniche marched on the fort. Makes us look at the old citizens quite differently! Look out for squares and roads named after significant dates in Portuguese history. An excellent local history museum with wonderful ocean views.

Gastronomy of Peniche: Peniche is a gastronome's delight. Visitors will enjoy the fruits of the fertile surrounding Estramadura region - wines, olives, cheeses, meats and of course fish - the daily catch from Peniche harbour - in the many restaurants. The Municipal Market runs daily except Sundays- upstairs are marble slabs of fish brought in straight from the Atlantic.

Many cafes produce a delicious vegetable soup at lunchtime. In the evening, relax in one of the beachside bar/cafes or restaurants and watch the sun set.

There are coastal walking paths around the peninsula, for bird watching and Atlantic views. Daily excursions from Peniche Marina to Isle of Berlenga, a nature reserve in the Atlantic Ocean. You can also hire a boat for deep sea fishing. Peniche is a traditional town with many small shops and the daily Municipal Market. Peniche is well placed for day trips around the lovey region, including Obidos, Caldas da Rainha, Sintra and Lisbon, with many destinations reachable by public transport.There are excellent air-conditioned bus connections to Lisbon, Obidos and further north to Coimbra and Oporto. A taxi can meet you at the airport and within an hour you are in the house. Cost about €90. Alternatively, there is an excellent air conditioned bus service from Sete Rios Bus Station in Lisbon to Peniche which takes about 90 mins. Cost about €9.There is a bus every 30 mins from Lisbon Airport to Sete Rios Bus Station, cost €2.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We live in Sussex, near London. We have two children and a cat. We discovered Peniche for ourselves in 2001.

Why the Owner Chose Peniche, Portugal:
We wanted to find a place neither of us knew, and we didn't want to be dependent on a car. We stayed a few nights in Lisbon, then caught the coach to Peniche. After just a few days exploring, we realised it was the perfect place to find a house. We love the town and the people, the weather and the food! Our Portuguese friend helped us find a traditional house in need of renovation. This one was in its original condition with no indoor plumbing. He organised local contractors to moderinse the interior and within just five months, we were ready to for our first stay in Casa Azul.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Staying here means being part of the local town life, rather than being in a specially built holiday development. Yet at the same time all the visitor attractions are close by, and there is no need for a car. The best of both worlds! We like going to the indoor market and the small shops to stock up on ingredients for an evening meal, if we are not planning to eat out. All that exploring and going to the beach means we have healthy appetites in the evening! If we want to explore outside of Peniche, we can go by local bus or coach to places like Obidos and Lisbon.
