The Costa de Prata/Silver Coast/Central Portugal region
We stand in a strategic location that makes possible for you to enjoy some of the Potugal's must sees and do in a easy way, since we stand in the middle of it all.
Summers are dry and clear, with warm sunshine extending long into autumn. Portugal's weather ensures that its beaches and coastal resorts are packed throughout the hot summer months. Winter weather in Portugal remains mild (average temperature 11 degrees centigrade).
Moreover, we are situated in a true cross-sailing between ocean and land, hence the reason why many of the inhabitants of this region have made a living from both fishing and farming depending on the season.
Just 2 minutes drive away you have the immense Atlantic, with a beach (Praia de Porto Dinheiro) with lifeguard and awarded with the blue flag (just given to the beaches with outstanding water and surrounding quality). Also jnearby you have restaurants and lounge cafes, where you can taste our famous gastronomy or just relax in a sea breeze venue.
There are also many services around such as bakery, supermarkets, pharmacy, take-away, just to mention a few.
