About The Owner

Hello my name is Kate and I look after the apartment which my parents own in Portugal. We as a family bought our sea view apartment in a quiet area of Portugal, Foz do Arelho, in the summer of 2006 whilst on holiday there. We have travelled all over Europe each year on family holidays to many different countries yet we always seem to return to Portugal for it's friendly hospitality, fantastic local food, lovely beaches and restaurants and great vino!

Please get in touch to see if we have availability for you to stay in this lovely area of Portugal.

We look forward to hearing from you

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2006

Why The Owner chose Caldas de Rainha

This sea view apartment is in an idyllic location, close to all amenities and has stunning views. A great place to relax and also explore other nearby towns and attractions.

Inside the apartment is maintained with traditional Portuguese decor which has been described as a 'home from home'. It is cosy, well maintained and modernised throughout to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

What makes this apartment unique

Foz do Arelho for us has everything in a nutshell. Golden sandy beaches a short walk away, many restaurants to eat out, stunning Atlantic ocean views, local town with Portuguese tavernas and delicacies, great fishing spots, water sports and a short drive from many exquisite golf course resorts including the famous Praia del Ray.

The apartment is located in very quite area, close to the beach 5 min, and close to the point view, which was excellent to observe stars after sunset😊 . I hope we will come back here someday...

Great location, beautiful view of Foz beach.

  • 5 of 5

Alison greeted us upon arrival and gave great advice on the towns and beaches within an hour's drive. The beaches we particularly liked were Baleal, Sao Martinho do Porto and Nazare, The historic towns of Obidos, Tamar and Alcobaca are also well worth visiting. Lovely 2 bedroom apartment overlooking Foz do Arelho beach, a great central location for visiting the many attractions of the Silver Coast. The 2 bedroom apartment was very well maintained and had everything you need for a comfortable stay. A balcony with a fantastic view of Foz beach can be accessed via the main bedroom and living room.

Foz de Arelho

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is lovely: clean, compact, well furnished and with a beautiful view. It is very convenient for the beach end of Foz although some way from the shops and other facilities in the village. However there are plenty of restaurants within a stone's throw. The only recommendation I would make is some TV instructions in the apartment. I could not get it working, and am not particulalry technologicaaly backward. I am sure Alison, who was very helpful on meeting me, would have put me right with a phone call. I did not make one because I only really watch Bom Dia and not doing so made me read more.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We are looking into the television to check for any problems and I will try to get an instruction guide as you suggested. Apologies for any inconveniences.

Epic views, home from home!

  • 5 of 5

For anyone who enjoys stunning coastline views, peaceful surroundings and amazing food, do not hesitate to book a stay in Foz. We arrived with ease, hiring a car from Lisbon airport...The roads and driving (if you have great direction's. ..as we did) are super easy. Arriving in Foz you will be welcomed with outstanding views of the coastline. We are a (reasonably) young couple with a 2 year old toddler in tow. Our main aim was to find somewhere we could relax, my partner could surf and our toddler to play. Foz is a quiet little town with a great beach and restaurants...Our favourite being 'cais da praia' the service is great, fresh fish dishes and perfect for our little one to play in the sand whilst we sat back and enjoyed the sunset with a bottle of wine! If we are completely honest we didn't spend a lot of time in Foz...just because we like to explore and the surf was particularly wild at our time of visit. This wasn't a problem, we spent a lot of time about half an hour away in a place called 'Baleal' which is extremely close to Peniche (Surfing central). The beach there is perfect. ..close to amenities, great surf and brill beach for little ones with little rock pools for them to explore. During our time we explored Nazare (where we had an amazing fresh fish lunch) took a ride on the hill tram to the top of the town where the views across Nazare are truly breathtaking, casa da rainha and also took a little trip to the romantic town of Obidos (also had an amazing lunch in a little Italian restaurant...sorry can't remember the names) our little one particularly enjoyed the walk around the castle walls. Regarding the apartment it was a home from home with everything you needed, clean, great shower and also felt safe to be in. I would also like to add the lady who greated us on arrival was so helpful and nothing was to much trouble. You really do get value for your money at this apartment. Thank you again for the most relaxing holiday we have had in the past 2 years!!
