VACATION APARTMENT - 5 MINUTE WALK TO BEACH

Moinhos da Gandara Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Casa Eugenia, a 2 Bedroom Holiday / Vacation Apartment in a private residence in Buarcos, Figueira Da Foz.

The apartment is on the first floor/ground level in a private residence. It has 2 bedrooms (each with their own closet), 1 bathroom (with shower), living room, and large bright kitchen with a large eating area, and a walk-in closet. The living room and kitchen is an open concept design.

The apartment has access to a terrace overlooking a picturesque valley and has views of the ocean. Patio table and chairs with umbrella available on the terrace.

As soon as you walk into this place you won't feel like you are staying at a hotel. It's like being at home, away from home, and without the hotel prices. Feel free to wonder around the grounds, the garden, the vegetable garden and the fruit trees.

The property is located at the top of the hill near the castle ruins of Buarcos (Castelo de Buarcos). The 5 minute walk down the hill to the beach will take you through the narrow quaint streets of Buarcos.

Buarcos, a suburb of Figueira da Foz, in the Beira Litoral region, Silver Coast, is on the Atlantic coast. It is a picturesque fishing village, well known for its' beautiful extensive white sandy beach and deep blue restless sea. The surrounding beaches are well known for its windsurfing and surfing. It has an abundant number of cafes and seafood restaurants in the surrounding area.

It is 3 kilometers from Figueira Da Foz city center; a lively cosmopolitan city at the mouth of the Mondego River. A walk to Figueira along the promenade will provide you a view of esplanades, hotels and access to the casino. Parallel to the road is a cycle lane along which cyclists and skaters glide. It’s worth cruising Buarcos/Figueira's seaside road in summer or winter, from one end to the other. It’s a long beach where you can play football and basketball - it even has tennis courts.

If you enjoy the forest, within a few minutes drive toward Quiaios, you will have access to picnic areas and enjoy cool summer breezes.

This location is centrally located on the coast of Portugal it can be conveniently used as a base stay for all your visits to other parts of Portugal.

EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
Our week at Casa Eugenia in Figueria da Foz exceeded our expectations. We were meeting up with our daughter who is studying in Russia and needed a place to relax and reconnect with family. Casa Eugenia was perfect. The apartment is immaculately clean, equipped with a top quality kitchen and thoughtfulness given to details. As beautiful as the pictures are, they aren't able to do justice to the magnificent views. We enjoyed produce from Eugenia and John's garden, walking through the garden and watching the sunset from the patio. Although travel to tourist attractions was easily available, the quick walk down to the beach, dining and local shops was all the entertainment we needed. We were especially grateful for the helpful advise prior to travel we received when we made our initial inquiry about the property. We have already recommended Casa Eugenia to friends!

CASA EUGENIA

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Casa Eugenia for the entire month of May. We had never rented anything in a foreign country and had heard many tales of disappointment. Upon our arrival, we were so relieved to see the smiling faces of John and Eugenia welcoming us into accommodations that were just as advertised, if not more! The little touches that Eugenia provides make you feel like more than just a guest renting a room. The place sparkles with cleanliness, and our hosts made every effort to make us feel at home. It was the perfect home base to take day trips all over Portugal. Their son, David, was a wealth of information, and we cannot thank him enough for providing answers to our many questions prior to arrival. We would highly recommend Casa Eugenia.

We planned to use this property as a mid point to travel, when we arrived it was so clean the owners were amazing people and we found it hard to leave for day tripping. The views magnificent, so clean and welcoming. It was better that we ever expected and it made us feel very safe staying here. Cannot wait to go back.

MIKE AND SANDY, BOSTON AREA, USA

We stayed at Casa Eugenia in July of 2011 and would recommend it without reservation. The tiled apartment was clean, spacious and a 5 minute walk through a quiet neighborhood to a great beach. A large patio/deck off the full kitchen has long views to the water and overlooks the orchard of which John and Eugenia Carvahlo, the hosts, are so proud. Guests are welcome to stroll through about four acres of fruit trees and vegetables and take what you need for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The work the Carvahlos put in from dawn to dusk is amazing and matched by their genuine good humor and hospitality. We had several tremendous seafood meals in Figueira da Foz and, when I mentioned that my son and I enjoyed grilled fish John came home the next day with sardines and mackerel, fired up ther grill and fed us along with a couple of families staying in other on-site accomodations. Fresh grilled sardines and vegetables overlooking the orchard: the best meal we had on the trip and no doubt the one made with the greatest care. These are good, decent people who take care of their property and their guests.

If you're looking for a place in central Portugal to use as combination beach and base of operations, this is it. Close/short drive to Coimbra, Conimbriga, Aveiro, Seirra de Estrella/Monsanto, and even Sintra. Can't wait to get back.

We stayed at this property for a week and we were made most welcome. The apartment was spotlessly clean and every thing we could possibly want was provided. The hosts really made us feel welcome and we were well looked after. The property is a short walk from the lovely beach and there are bars and restaurants all within easy walking distance. There is also several supermarkets in the area including the fresh market on the front. The property had massive garden and terrace to the back with provided view of the hills and the sea, great for watching sunsets! There was plenty to do both in the town and it the surrounding area although a car would be an advantage if you wanted to go further afield. The beach in this town is its main draw and would be ideal for families. We made most of the sights identified as near by and enjoyed them all. We would certainly recommend this property for those seeking a holiday in Portugal.
