The Berlengas Islands nature reserve can be visited by boat from Peniche and are an ideal location for scuba diving. There is a wide variety of activities such as water sports, bike rental, go karting, bowling etc. There is a sailing school in Foz. There is also a tennis academy within the resort with 7 tennis courts. The medieval town of Obidos is well worth a visit with its medieval festival in July, Opera in August and a chocolate festival in the Spring. Caldas da Rainha is 30 mins away and has lovely shops and a great farmers market every day. Lisbon is only an hour's drive. This area is also one of the major wine producing areas of Portugal and wine caves and vineyards are only 10-30km away. The 5 star Marriott hotel has 3 restaurants and a very good spa and is an easy walk along the beach. There is also a courtesy shuttle bus available in the resort which will bring you to/from the clubhouse, tennis club and hotel. There is a restaurant and bar food available at the clubhouse. During the summer months there is an adventure club for kids and adults which runs activities such as surfing lessons, football, paint balling, tennis etc. Free WiFi is available in the property. This area is very different to the Algarve. It is much less touristy and being on the Atlantic Ocean, does not have the extreme heat experienced in the Algarve during the summer months. If bars and nightclubs are your thing, then this place is not for you! However if you are looking for a relaxing, beach based holiday with a wide range of other amenities, then look no further!
About Louise Carroll
Hello there! We are a family of four based in Ireland. We have enjoyed coming to this part of Portugal for 18 years and purchased our townhouse in 2008. With two children we unfortunately don't get to play much golf (!) but we find there is an abundance of activities and things to do in the area. It's a real chill out holiday and we enjoy nothing better than having a glass of wine on the balcony watching the fantastic sunsets and listening to the sound of the ocean.
Louise Carroll purchased this House in 2008
Why Louise Carroll chose Praia del Rei
Our reasons for buying here were pretty simple. We wanted somewhere that was quiet, not as touristy or as hot as the Algarve and somewhere beside the sea. We have got all this and much more.
What makes this House unique
We really believe we have one of the best locations in the resort. We are so close to the beach and the views are truly stunning. The house is really comfortable and if you like to cook, we have equipped the kitchen with every cooking utensil we could think of! We are very fortunate in this part of the resort in that we are only one minute walk away from the Vila da Praia Square where you will find Mare which is a very good seafood restaurant with welcoming staff and great views of the ocean. In the square you will also find the grocery store and Kids/Adventure Club We never tire of coming to Praia D'El Rey and really love it here. We hope you will too!
