About Nydia Barardo
I am a 70 year old woman married to a Portuguese man and we have a beautiful family, praise God!! We both speak three languages and enjoy meeting and talking to people of the world. My family enjoys our house in Portugal, but we've decided to share it with you who come from all over. Welcome to our lives, enjoy our house and treat it as if it was yours. Thank you.
Why Nydia Barardo chose Baleal
Ever since our kids were little we would come to this part of Portugal to be with family. We love Baleal and so we decided to buy our own place. Our family owned farms in this area and decided to subdivide and sell lots. One street is named after our uncle Joaquim and the Barardo's are still owners of properties in this area. I always loved Baleal because the beach is safe for the children. The left side of the beach is calm and not deep, while the right beach is great for surfers and for those who like to play in the waves.
What makes this Townhome unique
I love sitting in the bedroom balcony and reading a book, or lying on my hammock in the backyard and taking a nap. I love opening the dining room doors and letting the breeze come in while i sit at my computer. I love walking down the ramp to my neighborhood beach or walking down the road to the main beach. The advantage is that i don't have to compete for parking. I can stop on the way for a cup of coffee or an ice cream cone at the many cafes along the way. I can have lunch right on the beach at the many restaurants there. I can take a walk around the beautiful island of Baleal, go to church there if I am Catholic or drive to Protestant churches in Peniche. I can enjoy the fishing city of Peniche, and eat the freshest fish you could ever have. I can enjoy the feast at Ferrel and other towns nearby which happen weekly in all Portuguese towns during the summer. Pastries in Portugal are out of this world. What else can i say???

Lovely house, great location!
We have just returned from a lovely week in Baleal. The house was lovely, had everything we needed. Fatima made us feel very welcome- even leaving Easter bunnies for the children. There is a little supermarket 2 mins walk away which has everything you need. It is lovely to be able to see the sea from the balcony. Thanks very much!
Very pleased this family enjoyed our house and found everything as expected. We strive to please and, yes, Fatima is the best hostess we can ask for. Thank you.

I want to go back!
This townhome was perfect for my recent visit to Baleal. Not only was the house beautifully maintained and decorated, but it really felt like we were at home. Waking up every morning to open the blinds and see the ocean and breath in the fresh air was truly inspiring. We spent every day at the beach, traveling to nearby towns and totally immersing ourselves in the Portuguese culture. The 2nd best part? The amazing pastries you will be sure to enjoy at any of the nearby cafes! My stay here was truly part of the best vacation I have ever had, and I would highly recommend it to others. You will not be disappointed!
We are so glad this young woman stayed and enjoyed our place, and especially that she immersed herself in the Portuguese culture, visiting nearby sights and taking pleasure in the cuisine. It is true, Portuguese pastries are the best!!
Views, Clean, Close, Easy
I visited Baleal Beach with my family last year and loved every moment of our trip! The house is modern, spotless, has all amenities, and is very comfortable. With amazing views from the house, an easy walk to the beach, Baleal Island, restaurants and bars, surf clubs and shops...it's impossible not to love it. The Portuguese people are welcoming and friendly. Nearby places to visit are a must- Obidos (walled-in castle village), Nazare (fishing village), Foz do Arelho (bay and beach), Peniche (fishing city, cliffs, lighthouse), Alcobaca (cathedral, pottery) and of course, only an hour away, Lisboa and Sintra.
I highly recommend this beautiful home for families, singles, surfers, adventurers, beach lovers!
We are so thrilled this family made good use of their rental time to visit all those beautiful sights. Since their stay we have covered half of the backyard with a tile roof, so we can now sit in the shade or in the sun when we are outdoors. We hope all of our tenants will enjoy our home and all that Portugal has to offer. Thank you for your review. Nydia
Nice house in good distance to the beach
The house is in a quiet neighbourhood, comfortable and well equipped. The enclosed courtyard is great for the kids to play in. It is only a short walk to the different beaches and surf spots as well as to a small super market and several restaurants. We generally had a good time there.
However, the pictures in the description we based our booking on did not reflect what we got. The views of the ocean were taken from the top floor terrace. After our arrival we were told that the top floor is not included in the rent. For us, travelling with small children and therefore with limited mobility, this extra sea view terrace was an important point in making our booking. The balconies in the first floor are smaller and only allow glimpses of the sea through gaps in the surrounding houses. And while the courtyard enclosure is great for providing a safe place for children, it made us feel hemmed in a bit. Also, the garage is not available for your car or gear, meaning you have to carry your (wet and sandy) beach/surfing equipment through the living and dining area to the back courtyard. The house merits a higher score but we wanted to express our dissatisfaction with how it was advertised to us.
What we offer in our listing is provided to our guests. As we said to this family, we keep our personal stuff in the attic and our car in the garage. We have nowhere else to keep our stuff but here. So sorry they did not get the view they were expecting. Glad their children were safely able to play in our yard. The cleaning is done before you come and after you leave. We expect some sand in the living and dining area, though the gear can be washed in the front before you enter the house. Thank you for your review. As you say, we deserve better. Thank you for coming.
Baleal is a quaint small island off the coast of Portugal that is now connected by a small bridge. Our house is on the mainland, within walking distance of the island and both sides of the small bridge. On the right side of the bridge the ocean is stronger and ideal for surfers and people who enjoy riding the waves. The left side is more family oriented, safe for children and swimmers. It is a beautiful beach with restaurants, bars, shopping. Places to see in this area are Obidos, Caldas da Rainha, the Buddha Park in Bombarral, quaint small villages with their annual 'festas'.
