This house is spacious, lots of seaside touches, light and bright, with enough room to sleep 8 comfortably (10 at an aditional charge) The top of the house is great for kids with it's own shower room, like a loft apartment because it's so big, and the views from there are stunning. Sea views nearly all around this house. You can see the spire of the 5 star Marriot Hotel which is about 5 minutes by car up the farm lane with one of the best golf courses in Europe, and voted 8th best in the world. It's so easy to relax in Baleal, yet your close enough to wander over the road to the cocktail bar and game club or down the road for a great meal at great prices. And you can walk to the beach along by the cliffs for some stunning scenery and down to the beach for world famous surf. Baleal is now reconised as one of the best surfing beaches in Europe. Lagiodo is where everyone wants to surf

Further details indoors

A three storey traditional house with central heating for the colder evenings. Sleeps up to 8 people. 10 can be accomodated at an extra fee. The top of the house is like a big open plan loft space, great for children & it has it's own children's size shower and toilet with great views for miles around and a secluded balcony area. There are 3 single beds up there with a double futon & lots of room to spare

Coming down the marble staircase from the attic entering the first floor bedrooms you will find one has a grey slate tiled en-suite shower room with views out to the sea, the fields, even the spire at Praia d'el Rey on the Marriott Hotel. The other two rooms have there own balconies, they all have fitted wardrobes & cupboards. There is also the family bathroom with bath & fitted shower

Coming down to the ground floor you immediately enter into the living room which is very light & spacious with stone flooring, easy to sweep clean with all the sand from the beach. The living room has a real fire with a glass front door which is made to keep shut once alight. There are two sets of patio doors in the living room which open out to the front of the property & that has a little patio area to sit at if someone wishes to. It's very quiet up our lane, you see the occasional surfer coming back from the beach or the local farmer selling his fruit and vegtables.

Back inside is the down stairs shower room & toilet, easy access from the beach to shower off the sand. Through to the open plan Kitchen & Dining room with lots of Kitchen utensils & enough tableware & glass to cater for ten people. The Dining table seats six but extras can be added on with the garden furniture which is stored in the garage.

Further details outdoors

In the garden is the patio area & barbecue. There is also outside lighting, to sit out under the stars and relax. You can reach the Marriott hotel by driving up the beach road at the back of the house in just over 5 minutes. The road way to Praia D'el Rey and the Marriott, is 10 minutes for great pool facilities and the water park is in Peniche, which opens the end of June. You can also hire bikes in Peniche and at the Marriott and then there's the golf, the course was voted 2nd best in Europe and 8th best in the world. Our house is right on the doorstep of all the windsurfing schools, it's great for surfing at Baleal. They all hire out surf equipment, one even does kite surfing.

We have internet or you can get it just over the road in the "Game Bar" which is a local bar with big screens for all the football matches and snooker and a snack bar. It's very family friendly and they make a great veggie omelette (I'm veggie)

There are lots of Golfing opportunities locally not just at the Marriott Hotel in Praia d'el Rey. Also at the Marriott besides the great indoor & outdoor pool, there's a fitness room as well as spa & leisure facilities, tennis courts, football pitch, you get a lot of famous football teams going there to train. They are very welcoming at the Marriott

There is also tennis courts in Peniche. Down on Baleal beach the bars often have discos & live music. Caldas da Rainha is bigger than Peniche for shopping, about 20 minutes away passing the beautiful walled city, world heritage site of Obidos, a must visit for holiday makers

Obidos lagoon is a big attraction in the summer I like to view it from Foz do Arelho sitting in one of the relaxing bars especially at sunset. Sintra is also a magical place to visit with it's mixture of fairytale & gothic palaces, beautiful woodlands & streams. And of course you can't go to the Silver Coast and not visit Lisbon. Jumping on and off a plane at the airport is not good enough. A bus goes frequently through out the day to Lisbon for 7.50€ and the open bus tour of the city is highly recommended, as well as the Zoo with the dolphin and seal show, the kids will love that, and the Oceanarium at the Vasco de Gama centre is a must

And then there's the shopping. If you like to shop till you drop then go to Lisbon in your most comfortable shoes. It has everything from the old town & designer shops to the great big Columbo Shopping mall. On returning to Peniche on the bus relax in one of the bars or highly recommended fish restaurents for a beautiful meal and wine which won't cost you much more than a Mc Donalds (yuck) in the UK

The Portugese people of this area are warm welcoming people and normally from Peniche the Taxi driver only charges 7€ home, bliss.

Further details

I would need to be asked about pets? Strictly No smoking allowed on the property. Someone with a wheelchair would certainly be able to have access to the house because we have two french window doors at the front of the house, but the stairs could be tricky unless someone was prepared to bring the futon bed down stairs, it's a possibility, which I would be open to. If my house isn't always available I can rent out my next door neighbors also. It's just like mine but more traditional in style. I have pictures.

If you want extra cleaning it can be aranged with my cleaner who is 100% trust worthy for just 6 euros per hour and she works very fast because she knows my house well as she has been cleaning it for several years. She does get very busy in the summer so it's good to know in advance ifyou would like her.

If you would like some fitness and personal training I can arrange for you to work with one of the best fitness and nutrition experts in Portugal with over 20 years experience. You can work individually or in a pair for 25 euros per hour.

If you would like surfing lessons or to hire equipment I can arrange this for you also through one of the best and longest running surf schools in Baleal.

It is better to book a taxi locally to come from the airport to Baleal than to get one at the airport, it's cheaper. I can arrange this for you also if you don't plan to hire a car or get the buses. If you want the buses you have to go to the site for Rede Expresso in Campo Grande or Sete a Rios bus stations in Lisbon. The get the bus for Peniche and then a local taxi.

As you drive round the area you get beautiful views of a land and coast line that's not yet been trampled on by progress, but it's coming. The Marriot Hotel and Praia Del Ray with it's first class golf course is less than 10 minutes away by car, and at least another 3 big hotel chains are moving in. Obidos is about 15 minutes away, it's a World Heritage site, and full of morish history.Obidos Lagoon is a big attraction in the summer, I found the water there a bit cold, but my daughter loved it, so I sat outside a bar in beautiful Foz do Arelho over looking the beach while she swam. Caldas da Rainha is great for shopping, about 20 minutes away. Peniche is an old fishing town which is growing rapidly and developing into quite a busy shopping and eating area. Baleal where our house is has great surfing beaches and the world famous Supertubo beach is 5 minutes by car. Surfing schools are busy all year round, and the main Baleal beach has a lifeguard in the summer months which is great for families.

It's surfers paradise and our house is on the doorstep of what is now reconised as one of the best places to surf in Europe. only 2 minutes walk down to the beach. Lagido beach in Baleal and Supertubos are visited by the best surfers in the World and we hold the Rip Curl World surfing championships here every year.

What is a bit strange though is don't go anywhere looking for a romantic restaurant because a lot have lights on and the telly, mainly with football, my partner was completely in heaven, no romance, lots of Arsenal and beer the same price as bottled water in the UK. There are ofter discos at the beach bars in Baleal. For people who like to relax out our back windows you see the farms and the coast, beautiful. Our neighbours are locals and twice a week a farmer comes up our lane in his lorry and toots his horn and sells his fruit, fresh and delicious. There's lots of lovely walks and you can hire bikes in Peniche and at the Marriot hotel if you feel like a bike ride around. The weather is nice mainly all year round we had Christmas dinner in the garden and in t shirts in January on the beach.

"A perfect place for a winter break"

We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely villa, it is a lovely place and so close to everything we wanted to do and see. We enjoyed some lovely country walks and had great fun on the huge empty beach. My husband also had several rounds of golf at the nearby Praia D'el Rey course which is only 5 minutes away.

Our friends came with us and rented Casa Luisa, the house next door, (as recommended by the owner of this villa) which worked out perfectly for all of us.

We are planning a summer trip this year and can't wait to go back!

Thanks for your nice review, hope to see you all again soon.

"First class can't wait to go back made my xmas"

Went for Xmas weather nice sunny need jumper jacket for evening lovely villa so clean and modern fresh feel about it.
Location first class lovely bars restaurants ideal for walking along beach time stood still 10/10 for location and villa. Bale all is the most beautiful place ever just relax with coffee / wine and watch the waves crashing onto the rocks loved hope to book again in near future.
L

Yes Christmas can be fantastic, beautiful and sunny in the day time and the surfing santas and fairys and snowmen on the beach are wonderful for the kids to watch. Unfortunately snow men don't last to long in the water, and santas big fat belly normally means he sinks pretty quickly but its fun to see :) Come back and visit us again soon. Have a great summer and remember we have the Rip Curl World Surfing Championships again this year in October, your family would love that. Now they do a big music festival at the same time "Mosche" in Peniche near Supertubos, it's very exciting and all the celebs come.
