Spacious top floor apartment with south-west facing balconies giving uninterrupted views overlooking the 1st Fairway, large heated pool and Atlantic coast. Furnished to a very high standard with WiFi and situated in the centre of the Praia D'El Rey Golf and Country Club (apartment is in 'Aldeia Portucale' - best location in resort!). Only a minutes walk from the well equipped clubhouse providing both a la carte restaurant and bar menu, along with a relaxing lounge and large screen TVs. An easy five minute walk brings you to the glorious 2 mile deserted white sandy beach. The resort also offers all-weather tennis courts, shops and a Five Star Marriott Hotel offering fine and casual dining, state-of-the-art Health Club facilities and Spa.

RESORT & ACTIVITIES: Situated amongst pine woods and sand dunes with two & a half kilometres of sandy beach frontage, the Praia D'El Rey Golf & Country Club is an ideal base to enjoy many of the leisure facilities this five star resort has to offer. These include the 18 hole championship golf course, driving range and clubhouse with bar, lounge and games room. Tennis centre with seven all weather multisport courts. A children’s activity playground is also located near the clubhouse. Water sports, including surfing and sea fishing locally, with the opportunity to windsurf, paraglide, sail & paddle in the more tranquil waters of the lagoon (ideal for very small children), in neighbouring Obidos. Horse riding & mountain bike hire can be booked & there are countryside & cliff top paths along the unspoilt coastline. Day trips from Peniche to the National Park at the Berlengas islands can be taken in the summer. Alternatively, there is a PS2 available for when the outdoor activities don't appeal!
THE SURROUNDING AREA: Obidos and Peniche are the two nearest towns. Obidos dating from 300 BC is a medieval walled town with narrow streets and bougainvillaea covered houses leading to the castle at the top of the hill. Peniche is a working fishing port where day trips to the Berlengas islands (a national park) can be taken in summer (May to Sept). A castle, museum and excellent seafood restaurants complete the mix. Other interesting towns are Bombarral (wine), Caldas da Rainha and Foz de Arrelho. Further afield are the religious shrine at Fatima, historic Coimbra,Sintra and of course Lisbon. Lisbon is only 1 hour away and has all the museums, shopping and nightlife you would expect of a thriving capital city.

It is only a minute from the Clubhouse and is within easy walking distance of the sandy beach. The apartment has use of a communal heated pool (possibly resorts largest).

Located west of the medieval fortress town of Óbidos and close to the picturesque fishing village of Peniche. Offshore lie the Berlenga Islands designated as a national nature reserve. The area is also renowned for its wonderful seafood restaurants and delicious wines.
The apartment is centrally located within the Praia del Rey resort with all facilities being close at hand including the clubhouse, children's activities club, beach, 5 star hotel, tennis courts, and children’s play area.
