The apartment was excellent. The weather factor was the only reason for not 5 stars, but it’s an exposed beach town. The apartment was Very spacious and the lani with bbq great. Local market and restaurants more than adequate. It’s a tremendous value, even more so when the weather cooperates. The local beach is very exposed and not for beginners. However the lagoon is shielded and has great beaches. The location allowed us to get to various ‘tourist spots’ quickly, Nazare, Peniche and Batalha to name a few. For families with children Peniche has a ton of surf schools on a huge beach. For us it was a great base to explore , return then relax on the big lani.
