The Central Portugal region
Many sights of historic and scenic interest are within easy reach of the villa. In addition to shopping, Caldas has an ancient spa and is renowned for its pottery. Slightly further afield are the impressive 13th Century monasteries at Alcobaca and Batalha.
Most spectacular, however, is the medieval walled town of Óbidos (click link below) , a national monument dating back to the Moorish occupation of Portugal and now a UNESCO protected site. Largely unchanged over the centuries, its narrow cobbled streets and whitewashed houses exude a charm remarkably unaffected by the ravages of 20th century tourism.
On the coast to the north lie the seaside resorts of Sao Martinho and Nazare, while the important fishing port of Peniche lies to the south. Inland can be found the famous pilgrimage centre of Fatima while day trips can be made readily to Lisbon and its environs, about 60 minutes drive to the south.
To the west of Lisbon are Estoril and Sintra, both well worth visiting. Sintra, in particular, is an attractive old town with two magnificent old royal palaces.
Foz do Arelho
The surrounding area is ideal for water sports in the safe, sheltered Óbidos Lagoon or at the superb beach at Foz, only 5 minutes by car. Water skiing and wind surfing are available in the Lagoon or at the nearby resort of Sao Martinho.
Other locally available sports include fishing, horse riding, golf, tennis and a water sports complex near to Peniche.
The local beach at Foz is good for surfing. It is only a 30 minute drive to the world famous surfing beaches at Peniche, generally recognised as one of the best area to learn to surf. There are many surf schools and board hire available in the area.
