Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Enter Praia D'el Rey (which translates as the beach of the King), through the pinewood and eucalyptus forests and you will discover the reason why the resort has won so many awards by the travel industry. Tatonka is situated overlooking the 9th fairway of the magnificent, award-winning Praia D'El Rey Championsip golf course.
The villa actually is a 5 bedroom villa all with en-suite bathrooms although the owners keep one bedroom reserved for their personal storage.
The Master suite on the first floor consists of a large bedroom with a Super King-sized bed (6' x 6' 6") and bathroom with both a large bath and large separate corner shower. There is a private door onto the first floor terrace.
There is a further large double bedroom (with 2 extra single beds which can be moved if required) on the first floor with en-suite bath and separate shower. On the ground floor the 3rd double bedroom has an en-suite shower and also a door which opens onto one of the outside terraces.
The twin-bedded room with ensuite and shower is also situated on the ground floor. In addition there is also a separate 5th bathroom.
The bespoke fully fitted kitchen and utility room contains all the amenities one would expect from a villa of this quality.

The Costa de Prata/Silver Coast/Central Portugal region
Just 50 minutes north of Lisbon is the magnificent medieval walled town of Óbidos which lies at the end of the 6km long Óbidos lagoon. Walk along the castle walls with their breathtaking views or wander along the cobbled streets with their quaint shops selling locally produced artifacts, and wine from the region.
This western region of Portugal (Oeste) is the “real” Portugal situated in the fertile green valleys between the Atlantic Ocean and the rocky massif of the Montejunto mountains.
Within just a short drive one can discover the varied history of the region – visit the museum in Lourinhã where there is the largest collection of dinosaur fossils and dinosaur eggs in Portugal; or for something slightly more recent visit the Ceramic Museum in Caldas Da Rainha which features collections from the 16th Century.
The region hosts a number of ancient palaces and monasteries. Of great historical importance are the battlefields of Roliça and Torres Vedras where Wellesley (later the Duke of Wellington) defeated Napolean's invading troops during the Peninsula Wars – so much to see within short driving distances!
The agreeable climate is ideal for all year around outdoor activites – mild in the winter and pleasantly hot in the summer but without the searing heat of the Algarve and southern Spain. Enjoy the magnificent unspoilt coastline with miles of white sandy beaches.
Praia D'el Rey Golf and Country Club
Praia D'El Rey Golf and Beach Resort is a multi award-winning jewel in the crown of Portugal's Costa de Prata(Silver Coast). It has recently won the prestigious World Travel Awards for the Leading Golf Resort in Portugal.
The fantastic standard of the golf course is well documented however mention must be made of the quality of the practice facilities which feature a driving range, large putting green, dedicated chipping green and a green to practice bunker play.
For serious golfers you will also want to play the magnificent Royal Obidos golf course. This was the last course designed by the late, great Severiano Ballesteros. This course only opened in January 2012 but it has already become one of the greats - it has not yet been officially recognised as such but it will not be long - yes, it is that good!
The Clubhouse at Praia D'el Rey features a fully equipped pro-shop and excellent showers and changing rooms. There is a fine-dining restaurant together with a bar serving snacks, pizzas and take-away menu. See the attached picture of the breathtaking views from the Clubhouse terrace.
Within just a few minutes walk is the beachside 5* Marriott Hotel with its numerous bars and restaurants. There is also a deluxe health club featuring: State-of-the-art gymnasium; indoor and outdoor swimming pools; jacuzzi and steam baths; a complete range of massage therapies and facial/skin treatments.
