The ‘Orange Garden’ villa is located in Foz do Arelho, a small and charming village near the famous lagoon of ‘Obidos’. At less than an hour driving by car or by bus from the Lisbon airport, you can enjoy one of the most beautiful natural reserves along the Portuguese Silver Coast.
Foz do Arelho is known as a popular place for (kite)surfers. In the local surfing school, that was opened in 1997 (http://escoladeveladalagoa.com/en/) you can take surfing, kite-surfing, catamaran, paddleboarding, canoeing, water-skiing or wakeboarding lessons.
If you prefer a walk on the beach or in the natural reserve along the Atlantic Ocean, you will be most welcome in one of the bars or restaurants and try the typical ‘tapas’ or the simple but tasty fisch dishes. By limiting the number of buildings and appartments along the beach, Foz do Arelho is kept very natural and anything but crowded with tourist.
Within walking distance of our villa you will find a bakery, a butcher, a mini supermarket, a book shop and a bike rental shop. In the main street of Foz or on the beach of Foz (at 15 minutes walking distance) there are several nice bars and restaurants where you can have breakfast, lunch or dinner at very reasonnable prices.
The bus that stops in our street will bring you to the next small city of Caldas da Rainha in about 10 minutes. On the way to Caldas you will see a bowling hall, an olympic swimming pool, a sports hall, a carting hall, bigger super markets (Pingo Doce, Staples, Intermarché, Minipreços, Aki, etc.) and the ‘La vie’ shopping center that is open until 21 p.m. In the city center there are shops for clothes, hair dressers, banks and fresh products at the daily market. In the movies theater all movies are in English. You can also go for a walk in the city park and enjoy a drink at the bar.
The Orange Garden villa has three bedrooms each with double beds and a private bathroom. The living room with open kitchen opens onto a spacious south oriented terrace with a private heated pool and outdoor shower. You will find everything you need for a confortable stay: air conditioning, electric operated sunshade, electric shutters on all windows, extra electric heaters in each bathroom, 2 televisions, WiFi, extra lighting for the garden, etc. An alarm system will keep you and your family safe.
