Guestbook comments from the owner
Arriving for the second time this year in Foz do Arelho, we were on a mission to buy a property for our next home. Location was important as we wanted to experience where we were buying. Selecting this condo was such a reward as it is only two blocks from our lot. First, the condo was presented by Maria, who welcomed us with fresh fruits from her gardens as well as fresh flowers. The condo is well appointed with everything one would need in a home. It is clean, spacious, bright and light. The views are amazing. Sipping wine on the terrace, overlooking the ocean and the Obidos Lagoon was such a treat every evening. The underground parking was a nice plus. The location proved that the car was rarely needed though as we could walk to the coffee shop in the mornings, continue on for a walk along the beach and in the evenings we could walk to a number of very good restaurants. The location of Foz do Arelho in Portugal is so central to everything. Just an hour from Lisboa, minutes to Caldas das Rainha and Obidos, close to Nazare and then just a couple hour drive up to Porto. The area is filled with so many day trips, but if you just want to relax by the beautiful pool, walk on the beach and feel totally at home, this is a wonderful unit to enjoy. I might add that the building is well built, thus it is totally quiet inside. The cool ocean breezes flow through, keeping it fresh all day and night. The well stocked kitchen allows for you to go to the markets, return a prepare the smallest or largest feast you could want. As we build our home in Foz do Arelho, we will return to this wonderful unit on our visits.

BEAUTIFUL ACCOMMODATION IN A FANTASTIC LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
This accommodation was even nicer than we expected.. The lady who greeted us was very patient about our delay in arriving (car hire hassles) and very helpful... The accommodation was perfect and especially the kitchen, as we all love to cook and it was really well stocked with utensils, dishes etc.... The area is one of the best we've ever stayed in with the most amazing beaches.... And because of the lagoon you have a choice of sitting by the calm sea or by the pounding waves only a few hundred metres away. The beach is really clean and well looked after and there are lots of beach bars/ restaurants....
The drive to and from Lisbon is really easy and quick - about an hour and we really enjoyed the aquarium especially
The pools are great and the view over the beach is amazing.... Highly recommended - we hope to visit again ourselves....

FANTASTIC AND HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  • 5 of 5
What a great trip! The place was spotless and met all our needs (family of 4). Kitchen was clean and well equipped, never had the sense of missing anything. Rooms were warm and cozy (Portugal is a bit chiller in Feb). Bathrooms were clean and had heated floors (what a plus!!). And the views topped anything I've seen before. Being able to wake up and have my morning coffee in the morning, looking out to the wide ocean was just breathtaking. It truly made me feels stress-free and able to really enjoy my vacation. The location was local to many great cities. Obidos is a must see! Licinia was also very helpful in providing recommendations on places to eat and visit that was fun and safe when traveling with small children. Would definitely return and recommend to friends!!

WONDERFUL,RELAXED FAMILY HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We travelled as a family of four; the kids are 4 and 6 years old. Delighted by apartment. Fantastic view from balcony over the swimming pool to Lagoon beyond. Comfortable and clean. Felt like a home and had all the mode cons we needed, WIFI, broadband, DVD player, washing machine and dishwasher. This made travelling with kids much easier. The two bathrooms were handy and had lovely heated floors. There was no noise from outside so we had no trouble getting to sleep. The apartment was easy to cook in and had all the equipment you would need to make a meal. The pool is lovely if not a bit on the cold side for us but this did not seem to bother anyone else. We loved the beach and particularly appreciated the use of beach towels, wind breaks and a parasol for our trips to the beach. The temperature suited everyone as the coastal breeze kept my husband and daughter cool and the wind breaks meant I could toast nicely on the beach too. The beach is 5-10 minute walk from the apartment and the quickest way is down two large flights of stairs although if using a buggy there is an alternative route past the ice-cream shop.
When booking Licinia was extremely helpful and responsive to any queries we had. She was easy to contact and swift to respond. The booklet she provided about the apartment and surrounding areas was extremely helpful for providing directions to supermarkets and suggestions about places to eat. Our favourite was Pescador a brilliant seafood restaurant in Foz Do Arelho. Maria was also on hand if we had any queries during our stay.
I would definitely recommend the apartment to families wishing a relaxed holiday The resort is not overly touristy but has a great relaxed and authentic Portuguese feel to it. We loved the beach which felt quite safe as the lagoon did not have the big waves that you can find on a beach by the sea. However, if seeking thrills in the waves you can find them over the sand dunes from the lagoon or if you take a drive to nearby Nazare. There is also a water sports centre in Foz Do Arelho where we took out a canoe but there was also a chance to do a Wind/Kite Surfing and other water activities for more adventurous family members.
We would definitely recommend hiring a car. We visited many places including taking a day trip to Lisbon where we went to the Knowledge Pavilion- an interactive science centre and the Ocenario de Lisboa to see the sea turtles and other sea life.
