Guestbook comments from the owner

A beautiful apartment, which is fully equipped for anyone to stay.



With a 15 month old, sitting around wasn't really an option. Walks to the park, beach and around the resort, time spent in the pool and, trips out were all very much enjoyed.



Adult time on the balcony once Grace was in bed, enjoying the last of the sun with a book from the bookshelf was lovely and relaxing.



Thank you for sharing your fantastic apartment with us.

Home comforts just minutes from the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well located with a great view to the ocean from the balcony. The balcony is very well sheltered and overall the property is extremely well appointed and comfortable The location is terrific for exploring the region in a totally underrated country. We have visited P del R more than once before and will certainly return in the future.

Fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

We got a great first impression the moment we opened the door, which lasted our whole stay. The apartment is beautifully presented and very well equipped and spotless. We found it easily from the airport, following directions provided well in advance. The beach was pleasingly close-by and we had some great days out in Obidos (Medieval festival was great!), Peniche, Lisbon aswell as by the nearby lagoon. I even enjoyed reading of couple of books from the in-house "library"! All in all a very lovely holiday.

Toller Erholungsurlaub in fantastischer Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine tolle Zeit in der sehr schön gestalteten Wohnung verbracht. Hervorzuheben ist die wirklich schöne Aussicht von der Terrasse aus Richtung Meer. Durch die etwas zurück gesetzte Lage ist man auf der Terrasse auch gut vor dem Wind geschützt.

Das Ressort Praia D el Rey ist ziemlich abgelegen. D.h. wer Trubel oder Party sucht ist hier falsch.

Wer jedoch auf Erholung vom stressigen Alltag aus ist und z. B. lange Strandspaziergänge ohne viele Menschen schätzt ist hier richtig.

Was man wissen sollte wenn man in der Vorsaison und nicht direkt im Hochsommer anreist. Der Atlantik ist hier doch schon ziemlich heftig vom Wellengang und Strömung und auch ziemlich frisch. Das baden im Meer ist um diese Zeit eher etwas für Hartgesottene.

Allerdings gibt es in der Anlage einen beheizten Pool, insofern ist das nicht weiter tragisch. Wenn man wie wir mit einem Kleinkind unterwegs ist gibt es in ca. 10 Minuten Fahrtdauer mit dem Auto auch einen wunderschönen Strand (Lagoa de Obidos) an einer Lagune. Hier ist das Wasser ziemlich niedrig (Kniehöhe) und auch für kleine Kinder zum plantschen geeignet.

Hier ist auch sehr das Restaurant auf der Düne oberhalb des Strandes zu empfehlen (außen mit Holz verkleidet, der Name ist mir leider entfallen). Gerade wenn man nach einem Aufenthalt am Strand hungrig ist und zeitnah etwas essen möchte.

Hier gibt es tollen gegrillten fangfrischen Fisch (teilweise auch aus der Lagune) zu fairen Preisen. Auch ist die Bedienung sehr freundlich und entgegenkommend. Auch die Inneneinrichtung ist stimmig und stilvoll.

Wir waren auch noch bei dem Italiener direkt in der Anlage (Argento, ca. 3 Minuten zu Fuß). Wir waren hier nur ein mal. Aussicht ist traumhaft. Preise allerdings im Verhältnis zur Leistung ziemlich hoch. Wir hatten jeweils Pizzen. Diese sind jedoch nicht zu empfehlen.

Wir haben zudem 3 Ausflüge unternommen.

Peniche: Eher zum essen gehen geeignet, zum ansehen unspektakulär. Gibt aber viele gute Restaurants.

Obidos: Geeignet für ca. 2-3 Std. Kurzausflug (mit ggf. anschließenden Einkauf im Supermarkt Pingo Doce). Ist auf einem kleinen Hügel gebaut. Man schlendert diesen zur Burg hinauf. Entlang der Gäßchen verschiedene kleine Läden die u. a. den lokalen Sauerkirsch Likör verkaufen (welcher wirklich sehr gut ist).

Santarem: Städtchen ca. 1 Stunde von Prai D el Rey Richtung Inland. Auf jeden Fall lohnenswert. Nicht übermäßig touristisch. Gibt aber viel zu sehen und man kann auch etwas shoppen.

Great vacations in Praia del Rey

  • 5 of 5

The days in Praia del Rey was really a great pleasure. We went in your property and felt like home. It's perfect equiped in an excellent style and with an absolut fantastic view to the sea. We loved to sit outside on the huge terrace and enjoyed the silence and the sound of the ocean. The close pool in front of the appartement is perfect if you stay with children. With a car you are very central to visit a lot of very popular highlights and nice beaches.

We are sure to come back!!!!

Great relaxing vacations!

  • 5 of 5

Great relaxing vacations!

The weather was fine. We had sunny days during the whole week (1st week of September).

We found the apartment very nice, comfortable, clean and very well equipped. The balcony is a must!

There were very few people in the neighborhood, what was really good because we were looking for a a quiet place.

The whole village is very clean and very well maintained.

I had an excelent communication with the apartment owner (Simon), and I recomend this place to everyone.

This apartment is excellent, with a amazing location and with a very good view over the sea and the golf field.

It is very well mantained and with good facilities.

Praia D'El Rey
Car: recommended

Praia D’El Rey is a 50 minute drive north of Lisbon located on the idyllic silver coast. The beautiful medieval walled town of Obidos, with its castle, quaint cobbled streets, local shops/markets and year round festivals/concerts is within a 10km drive, as is the working fishing port of Peniche which has many excellent seafood restaurants and a waterpark. Lively markets and shops can be found in spa town of Caldas Da Rainha. The Obidos Lagoon (5mins away) offers many watersports. The Berlenga Islands nature reserve, visible off the coast can be visited by boat from Peniche (May-Sept), and are also a major attraction for Scuba Diving. The area has wine caves & vineyards where you can taste the wines of the region. The award winning surfing & bodyboard beaches of Baleal and Foz Da Arello are a 15 minute drive away. Further afield are the religious shrine at Fatima, historic Coimbra, Sintra and of course Lisbon, which offers everything you would expect of a major European capital city.

Other Activities: Kite-Surfing, Scuba-Diving, Wake-Boarding, Microlites, Football, Basketball, Go-Karting, Gym/Spa, & Wine Tasting

Golf: Praia D’el Rey was selected by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) as European Golf Resort 2010. Also identified by ‘Golf World’ as the 13th Best in Europe, and Gold Award winner for Best golf development by ‘Homes Overseas’ magazine. The course is a mixture of links and mature woodland, and the views are constantly changing hole to hole, from cliff top ocean views, local countryside and lush scented pine forest. Golf can be booked direct through the PDR Pro Shop or (more reasonably) using internet-based booking services. British golf professionals are available for lessons and the practice facilities are outstanding with short and long game areas, and several putting greens. There are other excellent golf courses along the Atlantic coastline and inland from Praia Del Rey within a short drive to add variety, the Bom Successo course literally a 10 minute drive away opened mid 2008. Conditions are exceptional throughout the year. Full hire services at the clubhouse pro shop. The clubhouse also has a bar/restaurant.

Please be aware that the pro shop may ask for handicap certificates.
