Why Debbie O'Brien chose Praia D'el Rey
We have endeavoured to create something special in a truly remarkable location which like minded people will enjoy.
This modern townhouse is located centrally and within walking distance of Praia del Rey's perfect blend of un-spoilt beaches.
Whether you enjoy active beach sports such as surfing, tennis, golf, family time in the security of peaceful gardens, or maybe just a bit of me-time, being pampered in the 5* Marriott Hotel.
Well this location has this and more!
The beaches here offer a true paradise with some being almost deserted. The difficult part is choosing which beach to visit.
If you are adventurous and like to explore, you will be surprised at the peace and beauty of Praia del Rey's beach, the perfect waves that can be found at the Super Tubos in Peniche, the tranquility of Sao Martinho do Porto or the simple natural beauty of Baleal beach.You really are spoilt for choice!
However it is at the end of each day when the silver shimmer on the ocean's horizon that shows off the Atlantic at its best and most beautiful.
What makes this house unique
This well proportioned townhouse has all the features for a great family holiday experience.
It has been furnished to reflect the standards of a 5* resort; elegant rooms, first floor and garden terrace dining, spacious gardens, with three private heated swimming pools. It's no wonder we loved it, from the first time we saw it.
Few resorts are more perfectly situated than Praia del Rey. Still within easy reach of the capitol Lisbon, this 230 hectare estate overlooks the wide Atlantic ocean and has magnificent views, making it one of the most desirable locations in Portugal.
Such beautiful surroundings also offer a host of activities; nature trails, horse riding, mountain biking and hiking are all on offer. Surf trips, sailing, windsurfing, scuba diving, jet-skiing, game fishing and many other water sports are all available from the resort or in the nearby Obidos lagoon.
Or why not simply leave your stresses behind, relax and enjoy your holiday with a wonderful glass of local wine in the beautiful surroundings of Vila dos Principes.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We have returned, rested and tanned (some more than others) back to a cooler, darker UK.
Debbie, we both have to say from the moment we opened the door the WOW factor hit us. It has taken a while to find a holiday accommodation that we truly felt was home from home and everything was perfect.
Pools on site were great, clean and relaxed, plenty to do within the area.
Weather was brilliant the only downside was that the 10 days went too quick.
We had a wonderful time in Lisbon, Obidos and Sintra but the best day trip was a boat ride from Peniche to the island of Berlengas.
The crossing took 25 minutes and we added a guide and cave tour to the excursion. The island had a small beach cove and it was idyllic. Beautiful clear water, gave wonderful views of many shoals of fish through a glass bottomed boat.
Although the sea was cold at first, many visitors took the opportunity to snorkel and swim in the bay.
A perfect day trip.
Thanks again, you have a wonderful home in Portugal
