The Costa de Prata/Silver Coast/Central Portugal region
The Silver Coast is renowned for its unspoilt coastline and excellent golf courses. Only 5 minutes drive from the villa are three world class golf courses Praia D'el Rey, Royal Obidos and Bom Sucesso. The villa is equipped with two complete sets of golf clubs for the use of guests. The close proximity of three top class golf clubs makes the area particularly suitable for golfing holidays, particularly in spring or autumn when green fees are very competitive.
As well as the beaches at the lagoon and Bom Sucesso nearby, you can find more about 5 minutes drive away at Praia do Mar. Further afield are beaches at Foz do Arelho on the opposite side of the lagoon, Baleal, Peniche, Sao Martinho do Porto and Nazare. All are very picturesque and ideal for family trips as well as attracting enthusiastic surfers.
The mild climate with all year round sunshine makes it the perfect holiday destination in all seasons. In the summer the heat is refreshed by a gentle sea breeze.
The region has many places of historic interest well worth visiting, including Fatima and the monasteries at Batalha and Alcobaca. For a great day out further afield, the university town of Coimbra, palaces and castle at Sintra, Mafra Palace, and the city of Lisbon are all famous tourist attractions.
Nearby are three excellent golf courses - Praia D'el Rey, Royal Obidos and Bom Sucesso, located in beautiful scenery within 5 minutes drive. Praia D'el Rey, with sea views, was designed by the American golf architect Cabell B. Robinson. It was rated 13th best course in Europe by Golf World magazine, attracting both private and sponsored events as well as international tournaments and recently hosted the Portuguese open. Bom Sucesso, opened October 2008, is already considered one of the finest courses in Europe. It has stunning views over the Obidos Lagoon and was designed by Donald Steel. It's a PAR 72, with an area exceeding 6000m2. Royal Obidos has marvellous views over the sea water lagoon and to the sea. Also in the area are Golden Eagle (25 minutes) and Campo Real (30 minutes). Two complete sets of golf clubs are provided for guests at the villa.
The beautifully preserved medieval walled town of Obidos is about 10 minutes drive away. This is a 'must see' place to visit during your holiday. The town is lovely with narrow cobblestone streets full of whitewashed houses with blue or yellow borders, flower-laden window boxes and terracotta roofs. From the town walls there are marvellous views of the town, castle, Roman ruins and surrounding countryside. There are a good choice of restaurants, cafes and bars, and gift shops selling local handicrafts. You can also try the local Ginja liquer. The town hosts cultural events throughout the year including an opera festival in August, a medieval festival in July and a delicious chocolate festival in March.
The fishing town of Peniche has an old fortress overlooking the harbour and there are many seafood restaurants. Peniche and Lourinha also have water parks. For birdwatching, catch the boat from Peniche (takes about 35 mins) to the national bird sanctuary and nature reserve of the Berlengas Islands.
Leisure activities in the area include tennis, go-karting, ten pin bowling and horse riding.

"The Perfect Half Term Break"
Having had a busy summer my wife, daughter and I was looking for a relaxing short break and Casa da Lagoa was perfect. The house was ideal; spacious, mondern, comfortable and nicely furnished.
The lagoon and the beach are idilic, perfect for long walks or just looking out to sea. The bars and restaurants are reasonably priced and the food was good. Being out of season many of the activities were not available, but we never bored.
We certainly enjoyed our stay at Casa da Lagoa
