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.
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 bougainvillea 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.
Our 3 bed apartment is situated in the award winning Aldeia Portucale complex on the exclusive Praia D'El Rey development and overlooks the 1st tee. It is only a minute from the Clubhouse and is within easy walking distance of the sandy beach.
