Elegantly Furnished Apartment adjacent to 7th fairway & close to the Beach
- english, portuguese
Hi. We came to live and work permanently in Portugal in 1991 and have grown to love this quiet and unassuming country. In 2006, we purchased the apartment also rent out a house in the Coimbra area.
Steve purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Steve chose Praia D'el Rey
At the time of purchase, Praia Del Rey resort was already established and well developed which gave us confidence to buy the apartment off plan. We were delighted with the finshed result and particularly pleased with the beautiful gardens and pool area.

a wonderful 10 days at praia del rey !
Just got back from this lovely apartment, which is well equipped with everything you need to enjoy your stay. It's just a few minutes by car to the beach, which can be accessed through the marriot hotel on the resort. If you speak nicely to the hotel staff they'll let you use the hotels pool also! Several other beaches are only 10 - 15 minutes away , but you could equally stay on the resort and find plenty to do, from golf, tennis, table tennis, mountain biking, even paintball!
Steve, the owner, made the booking very easy and very easy to deal with, and one of the few apartments I found that allowed a 10 day stay. All in all thoroughly recommended!
Great for young families!
Relaxing holiday enjoyed by all in a top notch apartment. Open the lounge doors and step into tranquil, manicured gardens and a lovely private swimming pool. We could not get our 5 year old out of the pool! 5 star golf course on resort and world class surf beaches all within a 5km radius for sporty types. Highly recommended.
Very gratifying to hear you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again one day.
So relaxing and feeling like at home
This was our second stay at this appartment and we enjoyed it once again a lot. It was a bit like coming home.
Our children (4&7) and we had a big pleasure by swimming in the pool, on the beach and during our trips to the various great monuments to be visited in this region.
The appartment is spacy and with nice furniture and has everything to spend real good holidays.
Quite possible that we will have somewhen a third stay.
The apartment is spacious, comfortable and well appointed. The kitchen has all the modcons you don't expect from a holiday let, and they all work. There were 3 adults in our party and we had more than enough space.
The position is ideal with doors from the kitchen and living room giving out onto the garden area and the pool which we had almost to ourselves.
The apartment is at the end of a quiet road at the start of the large Praia del Rey complex and once you are familiar with the area it is easy to get around. There also seemed to be a shuttle bus stopping nearby (but we had a car so didn't use it).
There are several restaurants in nearby Serra del Rey which are good. I recommend the Tribeca. Peniche is a short 20 minute drive away where you are spoilt for choice of fish restaurants.
It's about an hour from Lisbon depending on traffic so an easy journey.
Once again a very comfortable and relaxing apartment of a very high quality which I would recommend.
Greatly appreciated comments on your holiday and our apartment. We hope you will return one day as our guests again. Thanks for your kind words.
Lovely apartment - would go again!
I've stayed in the apartment 2 times now, and have enjoyed both times thoroughly. First time was for our wedding anniversary weekend in September 2010 with just my husband , and the second time we brought our 2 teenage sons along too - both are mad keen golfers and they had a ball. The boys loved cafe Zanzibar and met up with other teenagers there, giving us time to explore the quaint little town of Obidos and the lagoons.
Apartment is light and airy and furnished to a high standard. Well equipped too and was spotlessly clean both times . Would certainly recommend to friends and family and hope to be back again in September
Golf: Golfers will not be disappointed with the course and its manicured quality, suffice to say it has ratings of Nº1 in Portugal (Peugeot guide) and Nº13 in Europe (Golf World). The views as you walk around the course are stunning and constantly changing from cliff top ocean views, local countryside and pine forest bordering the lush fairways. A truly great golfing experience.
Club hire and PGA proessionals are available for lesson. If you are planning on quite a few rounds of golf, then have a change of venue and play Bom Sucesso or Royal Óbidos, both close by.
The clubhouse is well equipped with a well stocked shop and a bar and restaurant for light snacks or full meals with a choice of local or international cuisine.
For discounted golf rates, there is a range of websites with special offers.
Besides golf, there are other ways to enjoy yourself. Relax and read a book or just unwind in the sun by the sheltered pool before an alfresco dinner on the terrace . Take a day trip and do some leisurely sight-seeing around the fascinating nearby historic sites, browse the local shops and markets, play tennis on one of 7 all-weather, floodlit courts. No need to bring your rackets, they can be hired. In Peniche, don’t forget to stop and sample some freshly caught fish seared on the grill washed down with a bottle of 'vinho verde' a white wine unique to Portugal. Of World Heritage claim, the walled medieval city of Óbidos is close by with it’s enchanting narrow streets and picturesque houses adorned with hanging baskets laden with geraniums. You will find orange trees and purple bougainvillea around every corner. Take a panoramic walk around the battlements if you can handle the heights.
