Sallie purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Sallie chose São Martinho do Porto
Plenty of apartments but none are furnished like this one! I've taken no shortcuts in setting up Apartment X - i've invested in you, my guests, to ensure you have the best possible holiday. Our track record is faultless for the 9 years we've been running. We have bought the best beds, best linen, best fluffy white towels, luxury furnishings and quality kitchen equipment. We also have an extremely kind and conscientious manager, Teresa, who looks after the apartment for us. Why settle for squeaky beds? A PVC beanbag and one rock hard two seater sofa? For the same money - if not less - you can enjoy Apartment X's deluxe three and two seater sofas, with the best mattresses and bed linen in town for a great nights sleep! We look forward to welcoming you :) Sallie Owner Apartment X

Thank you Sallie & Teresa for the wonderful stay. The apartment had everything you could ask for and more! The beds were amazing and had the best nights sleep which was especially needed after a long flight. The apartment was spacious and very clean, equipped with everything we needed and more. The internet service was great and allowed us to communicate with friends & family back home and the tv selection was great too! Best of all, unbeknown to us, we had booked the apartment directly next to our cousin. He invited us to dinner and we realized we were right next to each other; it was great! Everything about the holiday rental was perfect, from the location, the amenities, cleanliness, and comfort; we will definitely be back! Thank you ladies for everything; you really made this a wonderful vacation! A special thanks to Teresa for arranging everything so last minute and having it ready for us as quickly as she did and meeting us to go over everything for our stay.
What a kind review and so appreciated Michelle! Apologies for the late response as ive been travelling! You were an absolute joy to have as a guest and we both hope you return soon!

Lovely well equipped comfortable appartment
The accommodation worked really well, very clean, well maintained, we made full use of underground parking swimming pool and ping pong. Great location 10 mins walk to beach and 5 mins to supermarket. Our host was very helpful too. Definitely recommend this property.
Thank you so much for your kind review. I'm so delighted to hear you had such a great time !
Very nice apartment
The apartment is in a good location, the fantastic beach was only a short walk. The shops & local market were also close by, with a good choice of food (vegan). Also a great Indian restaurant on the sea front called Kinara.
Spacious house on walking distance to sea and shops, bus nearby for day trips in the surroundings, heated pool which was much loved by our children and used a lot. Our children were even provided with some toys to use in the pool by the lovely house manager who did a big effort to welcome us.
Sao Martinho do Porto has for centuries been a popular holiday destination for the wealthy Portuguese. It's natural shell-shaped bay provides one of the warmest and safest areas for swimming on the Silver Coast. Cobbled streets and welcoming coffee houses sit comfortably alongside marvellous restaurants and even a cocktail bar! Shops and restaurants stay open all year round so even at Christmas there is plenty to do and see!
Sao Martinho-Do-Porto has a stunning and natural shell shaped bay providing the warmest and safest waters in which to swim on the Atlantic coast. Other fabulous beaches in the area include: Salgado - a near deserted beautiful white-sanded beach, Nazare - a vast stretch of sand alongside a thriving town with plenty of bars and restaurants, Foz do Arelho - the Atlantic on one side and a calm lagoon on the other with great beach bars! Also Peniche nearby is the number one surfing spot.
The nearest airport is Lisbon, just 50 minutes away. Porto airport is a 2 hour drive. Hire car is not necessary to enjoy your stay as everything you're ever likely to need is within easy reach (max 7 mins walk!) However, we highly recommend having a car in order to fully explore this lovely part of Portugal.
The apartment is just a 7 minute walk to the beach, 5 minute walk to a large supermarket and a 2 minute walk to the farmers market for fresh local produce such as fish, fruit and vegetables. For sight see-ers, Obidos, one of Europe's most romantic medieval villages, is just 15 mins by car. Alcobaca with its ancient monastery and restaurants overlooking the charming main square, is just 20 min by car.
The apartment and its location has everything you'll need for a fabulous holiday providing easy access to everything.
However, we also suggest you try and go further a field too as the variety of things to do and see in the area is endless. Horse riding, cycling, golf, swimming, paragliding, boat trips, surfing etc. Within the village itself, there is a bank, restaurants, a large supermarket, hairdressers and even a place for afternoon tea and cake! Oh and a cocktail bar! Sao Martinho is a seafood lovers dream where the catch of the day can be eaten as you look out over the water. It you want to go cosmopolitan for the day, then don't forget the colourful and vibrant city of Lisbon, Portugal's capital city, is only 50 minutes away by car and 1hr 30 mins by bus (pick up is from the centre of Sao Martinho-do-Porto). After a vibrant city visit full of tram rides, live music, museums and shops, you can then retreat back to your seaside village haven and luxury accommodation! Grutas da Moeda: (Coin Caves) are situated just outside the nearby town of Fatima. And we think these stunning limestone caves are well worth a visit too!
