Foz do Arelho
Serra do Bouro lies right behind the dunes of the Atlantic coast and near Obidos Lagoon. It is a protected agricultural area not yet disturbed by tourism. Ideal for walking or cycling.
The Obidos Lagoon is a peaceful oasis that is perfect for an evening stroll, for exploring on the new cycle path or for safe swimming from the inshore beach. It has a nice boulevard with pretty terraces and restaurants. All kinds of watersports can be done at the Escola da Vela (www.escoladeveladalagoa.com).
Famous is the disco Green Hill at Foz d'Arelho: fun till the early hours!
The best surf beaches of Europe are to be found at Peniche, at Baleal (www.penichesurfcamp.com).
A superb golf resort is pretty nearby, in the hills of Obidos, called Serra del Rey. The golf course runs along the coast of the Atlantic ocean, a golf experience rarely to be found in Europe. http://www.praia-del-rey.com/

"lovely place in a nice setting"
Me and my family (7 persons) spent 14 days in this nature paradise not far from lisbon, We enjoyed the cottage like house, the large garden and a huge pool. The house offers privacy, cosiness and calmness although various beaches, restaurants and nice portuguese villages are nearby. Lisbon is on one hour distance and nice for a daytrip or two. We can suggest any one to spend his holiday at this place as a group of friends or as a family either with young or with older children.
