About Philip Chantry

My name's Philip Chantry and I originally bought the apartment as I wanted somewhere for our family of five to go back to again and again. I since thought it would be nice to allow others to enjoy it as we have done since 2007!

Philip Chantry purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Philip Chantry chose Alcobaca

We chose this apartment as it had a great sea-view and it was large enough for our family. Also, the town and beach are both very child-friendly and safe.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely holiday. The afternoons were surprisingly hot for this time of year and I liked that it was so quiet around the bay. And I have to say my favourite restaurant was Portabello's – We loved it. It was very reasonable at all the places we visited, so it so didn’t hurt the pocket too much!

Spacious, quiet, comfort beside the beach

  • 5 of 5

We have three children of 17,15 and 12. So we were looking for accommodation that would give us enough room to enjoy our holiday at a price we could afford. This apartment ticked all the boxes. Philip was polite, pleasant and prompt to deal with. The wifi kept the teenagers in touch with their friends and the pool table amused the 12 year old. The town was safe yet had enough going on to keep all ages amused. The welcome pack in the apartment guided us to good places to eat and visit. We were close to the beach do we could come and go easily as we don't like lying out all day. Perfect apartment,

Within walking distance of everything you need for a relaxing or active holiday.

Best holiday apartment we have stayed in

  • 5 of 5

Always apprehensive when booking an unknown, however, 1st contact with Philip put us totally at ease, very helpful informative & friendly attitude put us in a good mood before the holiday started. very comprehensive info pack gave us lots of food for thought & directions made finding the apartment very simple.

Absolutely loved the apartment, very spacious, very well equipped, more like a home than a holiday apartment, 5 minutes walk from a lovely beach, lots of restaurants within a very short walk and lots of places worth a visit close at hand, will definitely return.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! Really pleased to know your be coming back again at some point! I think the common theme amongst the feedback we've had about our apartment, is how simple it is to find your way around, and to get from A to B while you're there. Everything is on the doorstep too, which means you don't necessarily need to hire a car. All in all, a really stress-free holiday!

Fantastic large apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 had a brilliant 2 weeks staying at Phil's apartment. The apartment is very well equipped and had everything we needed. It is in a superb location on the edge of town but minutes away from the beach and all the restaurants.

The town of Sao Martinho do Porto is a very pretty place with enough amenities to satisfy a 2 week stay. There are plenty of different restaurants to choose from although we did end up visiting our favourite, Portobello, on 3 separate occasions.

The weather was not wall-to-wall sunshine for our first few days but this enabled us to visit a few nearby places, all of which I would re-visit again. Highlights were Nazare, Obidos, Lisbon and Buddha Eden.

I would recommend this accommodation to anyone looking to stay in the area. We would stay there again without hesitation.

Thanks Phil,

Mark + family

Absolutely Fabulous - Five Star Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was absolutely superb, definitely five star accommodation. The apartment was beautifully well equipped, the sofas very comfortable (and we have very comfortable Reid sofas at home), the blue tooth sound bar was brilliant, the TV and DVD player were great and the communal pool is absolutely massive. Last but not least………… the views from the balcony \ apartment are absolutely stunning. We are a family of five and it is probably the best holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in.

The location of the apartment is great, 3 minutes to the beach and town, close to pubs / restaurants / supermarkets… Also Sao Marthinho Do Porto is a stunning town…

Regarding the booking process, everything from start to finish was so refreshingly efficient and professional and all emails and enquiries were typically answered in minutes rather than hours \ days. Well done Philip.

One note of caution… The underground parking space is very big but getting in and out of the car park is very tight, big pillars (and lots of them). You will need to be a decent driver to get in and out safely. Please note, lots of parking spaces also available on the street.

Loads of amazing restaurants, our favourite two were :

- Portobello ( amazing Italian restaurant)

- Pesca no Prato (fish restaurant)

Would we stay here again ? Absolutely, we have already booked in for July 2016.

Large apartment in a lovely small town

  • 4 of 5

The description was very accurate about the apartment, it's location and facilities. The rooms were large, the beds were comfortable and the sea view was great. The owner was prompt with email communication and the local manager was helpful even though we had no contact after the first day.

Sao Martinho was a great little town that was close to lots of things in Central Portugal and provided all the necessary stores and a great daily market for a nice week. We visited a number of beaches and historic sites in the area and ate at a number of good restaurants in Sao Martinho. We especially liked Boca del Mar, Cais 24 and Royal Marina.

The reason for my four star rating was the comfort of the living room furniture, it still looks ok, but is a bit worn and very uncomfortable to sit in. The bathrooms could have been a little cleaner and the ensuite bathroom was very tiny.

But I would still recommend the apartment and we had a very nice week in Sao Martinho.

Owner's Response: Thanks for letting me know how you got on Kathryn! Pleased you enjoyed the wonderful sea view and the local restaurants which are amazing. Thanks too for your constuctive comments. We visited the apartment ourselves the week before you and found the furniture really comfortable still. All I can assume is that your furniture back home in the States is really amazing! I take your point though about the ensuite bathroom being small, but hopefully that did not come as a surprise to you as the photos on the site are an accurate representation of the whole apartment. I will have a word with the cleaner though as we expect nothing less than 100% when it comes to cleanliness. They have never let us down so far in five years though as readers will see from our other guest comments. Thanks again Kathryn, and despite the minor issues, we're happy you're recommending our sea-view apartment to others! Muito obrigado!

Car: recommended

Wide stretches of sand and deep blue sea. An enchanted island with an ancient fortress. Fragrant orchards and fruitful vineyards. A lagoon bordered by pine trees. Gentle rolling hills. City walls enclosing the white houses of the medieval town of Obidos. Historical monuments and museums. A rich gastronomy with numerous fish and shell-fish dishes. The Silver Coast has a lot to offer for children and adults alike!
