Villa Azul is located within the idyllic country club resort of Praia D'el Rey. The resort sits atop the fabulous Atlantic coastline in Portugal's unspoiled and historical Oeste region.

The villa, which is close to a local shop and tennis complex, is tastefully decorated and is only a five minute walk from the club house. The resort owns its beautiful private beach, only a ten minute walk away. The beach is great for sunbathing, walking and favoured by surfers.

The Costa de Prata/Silver Coast/Central Portugal region
Located in central Portugal, between Porto and Lisbon, and in the Estremadura region, the stunning Silver Coast or Costa da Prata is so-called because the Atlantic Ocean turns to silver as the sun sets. The sandy beaches, attractive seaside towns and quaint fishing villages, rolling hills and valleys make this a and a popular holiday destination for the Portuguese themselves. It's home to some of the country's most impressive historical and religious sites, breathtaking views of the rugged coastline and largely-deserted beaches all combine to offer a perfect holiday setting.
With an average of 275 days of sun each year the average daytime temperature in the Summer is an agreeable 27 degrees with a very pleasant 17 degrees in the Winter months.
One of the better ways of exploring the Silver Coast is to follow one of the wine routes established by the region's tourist board. The Silver Coast offers three established wine routes that take in not just some of the leading vineyards of the area, but some of its historic sights as well.
The Silver Coast is one of Portugal's hottest golf destinations. With the world-class course of Praia d'el Rey setting the standard for some exacting golfing among the spectacular scenery of the Atlantic Coast this is the region that more and more discerning golfers are turning to. Other nearby courses of Bom Successo and Royal Obidos offer equally challenging spectacular golf.
The Silver Coast is widely recognised as the best area to surf in Portugal. This is because quality waves are available all year and the variety of locations and conditions mean that there is something for everyone from beginner to potential world champion.
There are many surf schools along the coast where qualified instructors and guides can help surfers of all skill levels to teach the basic techniques or develop those you may already have and provide valuable information of local tides and conditions.
Praia D'el Rey Golf and Country Club
The villa is situated only a 5 minute walk from one of Portugal's finest golf courses. Tee off and meet the challenge of a links front 9 with stunning views over the Atlantic Ocean, followed by a beautiful tree-lined back 9. Golf buggies can be hired.
Driving range, putting green and golf lessons available.
10 minutes further up the road are 2 new courses offering fantastic golf for all. Bom Successo has an 18 hole golf course, designed by Donald Steel. This championship course has already been heralded as one Portugal's golfing gems. A demanding course with spectacular views. Royal Obidos has been largely recognised as a championship course to be reckoned with. Its perfectly undulating fairways are truly world class.
40 minutes inland near Rio Major is the Golden Eagle Golf course designed by Rocky Roquemore. This championship course is unique due to its beautiful natural setting and the Golden eagles that circle overhead in the late afternoons.
Praia D'el Rey boasts its own fabulous stretch of long sandy beach, which is great for sunbathing and walking. Strong currents and a constant sea swell, however, make it unsuitable for swimming in areas without a life guard. The nearby Obidos lagoon and Peniche beach are much calmer and great for kids. There are several great spots for surfing and other water sports. South of the resort, the beaches of Baleal, Peniche and Supertubes offer superb surfing conditions. Board hire/lessons available.
Nearby towns include,
Obidos, a beautiful, historical, medieval town 15 minutes drive.
Obidos lagoon, calm waters offering sailing and wind surfing, ideal for kids, 10 minutes drive.
Peniche, great fish restaurants, boat trips to the nearby Berlenga Islands, a national nature reserve, 10 minutes drive.
Caldas da Rainha, spa city offering shopping, open air fruit and vegetable market and restaurants, 20 minute drive.
Lisbon, a 45 minites drive and a must!

""Great place to stay""
We had a great time staying at Villa Azul. Location was great and central to all amenities on the resort. Kids loved the pool and we liked the privacy. The onsite staff were really helpful when we needed to know good restaurants and shops. Villa was very clean and well equipped, just what we expected. Golf courses were very nice and clubhouse was family friendly. Will be returning to PDR and Villa Azul sometime soon!
