The Costa de Prata/Silver Coast/Central Portugal region
Portugal's Western region is blessed with a mild year round climate typical of southern Europe creating ideal conditions for all sorts of outdoor activities. It is a land of vinyards and lush green valleys set between the Montejunto mountains and the Atlantic ocean.
The Silver Coast, a gem of largely undiscovered beauty and fine sandy beaches, gets its name from the effect of the sun on the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. You will enjoy spending time in a protected area of such outstanding natural beauty.
Eating out in this region is both affordable and satisfying. There are top-class restaurants, which are excellent value for money. Seafood is obviously a speciality and can be enjoyed with a good white wine of the region.
This is an exceptionally friendly and welcoming area, you will find it pleasurable to spend time in quieter part of Portugal less frequented by tourists.
The Praia D'el Rey Golf and Country Club area
The luxurious Praia D'el Rey Golf and Beach Resort (Portugal's Leading Golf Resort 2011, Europe's Leading Golf & Leisure Resort 2009 and 2010, Portugal's Leading Resort 2007 and 2008 - all World Travel Awards) is set in natural pine woodland on the beautiful pristine shoreline of Portugal's Silver Coast, just 45 minutes drive (via motorway) from Lisbon's International airport. See www.praia-del-rey.com for more details about the resort.
An exclusive and attractive award winning resort with a top ranked 18 hole championship golf course, a 5 star Marriott Hotel with spa, gym, restaurants and bars, shops, tennis academy, football centre (often used by Portuguese national team), children's activity centre/games room and miles of unspoilt sandy beaches.
Golfers will enjoy the course for both its spectacular views and overall quality; in 2009 it was ranked 13th in Europe by Golf World magazine. Praia D'el Rey was also voted European Golf Resort of the Year 2007 (International Association of Golf Tour Operators) and Best Golf Development 2008 (Homes Overseas Awards).
With the Championship Bom Sucesso course and stunning new Royal Obidos course just five minutes drive from Praia D'El Rey, golfers can play 3 top-rated courses during their stay.
Beach Balcony is situated in the new Vila da Praia (Beach Village in Portuguese) part of the resort; an area of cobbled squares, fountains, gardens, stunning ocean views and 3 swimming pools.
This is a real outdoor playground, ideal for walking, cycling, swimming, surfing (at the resort or nearby at the famous surfing beach of Baleal) or kite surfing. Excellent sailing, windsurfing, scuba diving, sea fishing and horse riding also available in the vicinity.
The nearby (15 mins) medieval walled town of Obidos is in a magnificent state of repair, and enjoys World Heritage status. Within the walls are fascinating alleys which have become home to high-class handicraft and gift shops as well as excellent bars and restaurants.
Close by is Caldas da Rainha, famous for its spa - for 4 centuries only the noble and those with royal patronage had permission to enjoy it! This is also the best place for shopping in local area, with several supermarkets, banks, street markets and quality shops.
It is also enjoyable to walk along the sea wall at the local fishing port of Peniche before visiting one of the many harbour-side restaurants for fresh fish cooked on a barbecue.

Wonderful accomodation with great views of the Atlantic ocean. Very comfortable with great facilities and mod cons. Very close to beach, small supermarket and cafe. 20 mins to the lovely town of Obidos or fishing and surfing town of Peniche. 2 x good golf courses nearby and lovely lagoon for swimming. Lots of organised activities if you can tear yourself away from the balcony. Very friendly and helpful owner. Great holiday!
