The Costa de Prata/Silver Coast/Central Portugal region
Stretching from Lisbon to Fiqueira da Foz, Portugal’s Costa de Prata (Silver Coast) is a gem of largely undiscovered beauty and gets its name from the effect of the sun on the waves of the Atlantic Ocean.
Unlike its more famous and populous cousin in the south of the country here you can discover pretty villages and a real Portuguese way-of-life amongst stunning coastal scenery fringed with the best beaches in Europe.
Because much of this area of Portugal remains undiscovered by the mass tourism market you can guarantee a beach to yourself even in the height of the season if you are prepared to drive and walk a little way.
Like most of Portugal the Silver Coast comprises mainly small towns and villages. You will find the Portuguese people to be exceptionally friendly and visits to the many non-touristy destinations, which abound the area are immensely rewarding.
The region is temperate. In the summer months it can get up to the late twenties or more in the day so make sure you come prepared with sun protection. The evenings in the summer are usually very mild but sometimes there can be a slighltly cool breeze so it's always worth packing a lightweight pullover.
In the Autumn, Winter and Spring the daytime temperature is often very mild and when sunny can get warm enough to sunbathe. The evenings do cool down and so warmer clothes for night are recommended.
=== Lisbon ===
Lisbon is one of the most immediately likeable capitals in Europe. Located on the westernmost front of Continental Europe, its mosaic of terracotta roofed buildings cling both majestically and humbly to its seven hills. The Tejo River sweeps past the many character-rich districts which border it, carrying boats big and small and is straddled by two impressive bridges. Some ultra modern skyscrapers rise starkly out of the generally more low rise and higgledy-piggledy layout of buildings, reminding us that Lisboa is indeed a modern city.
However, what makes it attractive is the fact that, despite being very much a multicultural 21st century metropolis, Lisbon retains a foot in the past and a remarkably provincial feel. Small markets still abound, frequented by traditionally dressed women bearing their load on their head, wood-interiored trams still rattle up unfeasibly steep slopes and people from all walks of life chatter in unpretentious local bars and cafes.
Praia D'el Rey Golf and Country Club
To sit atop the cliffs overlooking the Atlantic is just one of the holiday attractions at Praia D'El Rey Golf & Beach Resort, one of Portugal's most exclusive and attractive resorts. The resort is tastefully built and dotted with a selection of attractive, low rise self-catering apartments, townhouses and villas.
Set in natural pine woodland, the 600 acre resort is surrounded by kilometres of pristine sandy beaches and dunes. Praia D'El Rey has gone to every length to ensure a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
Leisure is the thing at Praia D'El Rey. As well as the award-winning golf course, Praia D'El Rey has a tennis academy with seven courts, volleyball and handball courts, the international FIFA standard football pitch and numerous trails for walking and cycling offer the more athletic a chance to burn off energy. Praia D'El Rey also has an established kids club, so parents can unwind whilst yougsters have plenty of fun. For those who want to surf, windsurf or kitesurf, there is the thrill of the rolling Atlantic waves to keep you entertained. To finish off there are bars and restaurants for relaxed evenings with friends and family.
A children's games room and playground are provided and future plans include an equestrian centre. Also within Praia D'El Rey is a 5 star Marriott hotel with shops, restaurants, bar, health club with gym and spa, indoor and outdoor pools. The natural attractions of the Atlantic setting include great surfing and clear waters around the dramatic Berlengas Islands make this one of the best diving locations in Portugal. Those seeking a less energetic way of life will enjoy the abundance of flora and fauna, grand ocean views and vast stretches of golden sand conducive to relaxing. Whilst the historic nearby towns of Obidos and Caldas da Rainha are a timeless reminder of the area's rich cultural past.
Praia D’El Rey is immediately surrounded by beautiful and renowned pristine beaches that offer some of the best surfing conditions in the world.
Tee off on one of Europe's finest courses Praia D'el Rey is arguably the most picturesque golf course in Europe. It is set among extensive pine forests and undulating dunes, with spectacular views over the Atlantic and the Berlenga Islands beyond. Set with deep bunkers, sloping greens and sandy borders, contrasting sharply with lush fairways, it's the complete golfing challenge.
There are also opportunities to sample surfing, wind sailing, hire bicycles, horse riding.
Sample mouth-watering local cuisine, in particular the seafood - accompanied of course, by the Region's excellent local wine. You will find eating out is both affordable and satisfying. The West Region truly has something for everyone.

"Great Apartment - great resort !"
Stayed here recently and loved the apartment and resort.
The owner was very easy to book with and the apartment contained balls, buckets and toys for the children in the party.
All information provided was good and gave us lots of ideas for things to do.
It's a three bedroom ground floor apartment located around shared pool.
The children soon made new friends and spent plenty of time under water.
The beach at Praia d'el Rey was a big hit for wave jumping. It was a bit rough for swimming but enjoyable none the less.
The summer offer made playing a very good golf course a pleasure.
The golf clubhouse was a great place to eat.
We all enjoyed it immensely !
So pleased you had a lovely holiday at our place in PDR. Thanks for choosing us.
