The Costa de Prata/Silver Coast/Central Portugal region
The Costa de Prata (Silver Coast) is a lush, unspoiled and traditional area of Portugal with a beautiful coastline and a variety of beaches and bays for bathing and surfing.
Praia da Areia Branca is a traditional Portuguese coastal village, with a variety of local activities and amenities.
The closest larger town is Lourinha, 5km away (5 minutes by car) and offers a wider selection of traditional shops, restaurants and bars. The larger holiday town and fishing port of Peniche is 15km away, approx 10 mins drive.
The delightful medieval walled town of Obidos is only 15 mins by car (25km) and the larger ancient spa town of Caldas da Reinha is just 20 mins drive from the house.
For a city day-trip for sightseeing and shopping, Lisbon is only 45-50 minutes away.
The local beach, Praia da Areia Branca (5-8 mins walk), is a long, sweeping sandy beach suitable for bathing and surfing. Idyllic sheltered and peaceful coves can be found just minutes drive along the coast.
Excellent surf beaches both north and south of the area, including the famous "Supertubos" and "Baleal" near Peniche (10 mins drive).
There are 2 all-weather tennis courts, available for public use, next to the house, along with the colourful children's' playground.
There are 3 excellent golf courses within a 20 minute drive, including the award-winning Praia del Rey (18 hole) championship course, the Seve Ballesteros-designed Royal Obidos (18 hole) and the newly-opened Bom Successo (18 hole) courses. Also nearby are the Atlantico (9 hole) and Termas do Vimeiro (18 hole) golf courses.
There is also mini-golf available in the village and two local surf schools. A go-kart track is a short drive away.
Lourinha has a fantastic "dinosaur museum" - delightful for children! And Lisbon's "oceanario" aquarium is well worth a visit too.

"Great Town House"
We had a lovely time. The Town house was exactly as the picture showed- very stylish. The pool was lovely although very cold at the time we went. We were slightly out of season (october) but still had excellent weather and there were enough shops, cafes and retsaurants open. My partner surfs and the area is really good for that. Overall we thought the booking was really efficient and the owners didn't mind my silly emails asking about small matters. We would certainly go again

"Perfect All Around!"
We`ve had the most wonderful family holiday.
The accommodations are excellent,clean and modern.
A really safe and fun place for children both at the pool and nearby beautiful beaches.
There are so many different and interesting half-day trips from this base on the Silver Coast.
Add to this the sunshine and sea breezes with the local,friendly restaurants serving fresh fish and wonderful wines.Perfect all round !

"Ideal family holiday on the lovely Silver Coast - we look forward to coming back soon"
The Townhouse is perfect accommodation for a family holiday - a really quiet, peaceful location, but close to beaches and other facilities. The house itself is spacious, modern and very well furnished, and equipped with everything necessary (we could even watch the Olympics on BBC!). Most important, it is a very safe environment for families with young children, with loads of space inside and out for play, and a great pool.
There are lovely sandy beaches nearby, some almost deserted even in July, and the Atlantic breeze makes for a perfect climate.
All the restaurants locally we ate in were good value, very welcoming, and served fantastic fish and seafood, and excellent local wines.
There are some great sights nearby: Obidos is a must-see, and Lisbon is within easy reach - one of Europe's most charming and best preserved cities.
Finally, and best of all, the Silver Coast remains a relatively unknown region of Portugal in international terms, despite being so easily reached from Lisbon, and as such has not been impacted by mass tourism. The people are very friendly, the rugged coastline is beautiful and unspoilt, there are loads of things to do, whilst the prices are excellent value.
We'll definitely be coming back.
