Beautiful spacious apartment with fab pool.
A beautiful apartment with fab size bedrooms and plenty of bathrooms for the kids . On a bit of a incline so wasn’t the best for my older mother as she couldn’t get around as easy as she would of liked. In a very quiet area but ideal base to jump on motorway to Peniche, Obidos , San Martinho and even Nazare. Had a lovely week even had English TV for the kids . Thank you for a lovely week in your apartment.
Good spacious villa with shared pool and own patio and bbq.
Great spot for families as 10 mins walk to gorgeous beach on the lagoon with bars and restaurants there. Villa well set up and nice pool.
Nice spacious vila in a handy location
We enjoyed our holiday in Foz and this villa was a good base. It was spacious, very clean and convenient for the beach, the village and the lagoon. Matt was extremely helpful through the booking process, as was the local agent when we were there. There is plenty to do in the local area and so would recommend.
Our one-week stay in the villa was very enjoyable. There was plenty of room for our party of five adults with a nice patio for evening BBQs. The "rep" was v.helpful and came immediately to help us with some settling in challenges. Parking on and off road and a nice little infinity pool for cooling dips. Would unreservedly recommend :)
Modern villa in a traditional Portuguese village
Fantastic, modern, spacious villa in a lovely traditional portuguese village!
The villa is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need, Great size bedrooms, plenty of bathrooms and a lovely open plan kitchen dining area..however as eating out was so cheap in the area that we didn't bother cooking!
The villa is on a main road but its a really quiet spot and only a short walk into both Foz or to the beach where there are a nice selection of restaurants.
The pool was lovely and very quiet, we had it to ourselves for the majority of the holiday.
Would highly recommend for anyone looking to experience traditional portugal in a lovely villa.
Good location, well appointed villa
The villa was just as we had hoped - well appointed with all the comforts of home, including very comfortable beds! The view of the lagoon from the villa is excellent too.
Its location is ideal for everything - an easy walk into Foz do Alreho village and also along to the beach and lagoon, with lots of choice of beach bars and restaurants.
We hired a car and explored the surrounding area - and enjoyed Peniche for the surf, Obidos, Nazare and Caldas de Rainha - all of them very accessible. We had a lovely relaxing week, but will remember next time that it gets a bit chilly in the evenings on the Atlantic coast!
The calm, tranquil waters of Obidos Lagoon are a 5 minute walk from the villa. The lagoon provides everything from safe bathing for children to water sports to the seafood on your plate for evening dinner! Venture a little further (10-15 min walk) and you will discover the rolling waves of the Atlantic ocean as a backdrop to the seemingly endless coastline.
Faro Airport - approx 4 hour drive south.
Lisbon Airport - approx 1 hour drive south.
Oporto Airport - approx 3 hour drive north.
Car hire is pretty essential, particularly if you would like to explore any of the surrounding towns/cities.
Obidos, a medieval, white-walled town is approx 12km away. It is well-worth seeing and was originally a wedding present to a Queen!
Lisbon is about an hour's drive south and is great for a day trip - a regular bus service is available from Caldas da Rainha and takes about 1 hr 20 mins
Coimbra to the north - 2 hour drive - is a 2 centre university city, with the old parts on the hill above the new. Cascais and Sintra on the coast to the west of Lisbon are superb places to visit too.
Immediate vicinity: Foz has a mini-market, bar/cafes, restaurants, health centre, tourist office, pharmacy, a bank and a fishing tackle shop. The Central Bar is a great place to watch any live sports events, including many live Premiership Football matches. The bigger centre of Caldas da Rainha is 15 mins drive and has restaurants, supermarkets, daily fruit and veg market, cinema, train and bus stations, hospital, hotels, a park.
Within half an hour:
Obidos – 15 km – 20 min drive - once the wedding present of a queen, the preserved medieval town of Óbidos is without doubt one of Portugal's most classic walled settlements. Walking the ramparts, visitors can enjoy views of windmills, vineyards and surrounding farmlands. In the residential area below, narrow cobblestone streets are lined with whitewashed houses sporting terracotta roofs. The shops are piled high with local handicrafts, while in spring the town is ablaze with geraniums, morning glories and bougainvillea.
Sao Martinho do Porto - 20 min drive - the main resort along the coast between Peniche and Nazare. This is very much a tourist resort that provides many activities to keep you amused. Sailing, surfing, parapenting, hang-gliding, canoeing, mountain biking, walking, rock climbing and golf are all available here.
Day Trips: Fatima – 104 km – about an hour’s drive inland - the small town of Fatima, with more than 2 million pilgrims a year, is one of the most visited Marian shrines in the world today. In 1916 and 1917 a series of apparitions were seen by three young children that were to profoundly alter both their own lives and the atmosphere of the peasant village.
Berlenga Islands - Boats depart from Peniche - 25 min drive - a marine reserve classified by the Council of Europe as a 'Biosphere Reserve'. The archipelago consists of a large island, Berlenga Grande, and some small granite islands and rocks 7 miles from land. Crossings take approx 30 mins.
