The village is surrounded by countryside but the following towns are still within a 15 minute drive.
• Obidos. The medieval walled town of Obidos. Recently voted as one of the seven wonders of Portugal. This magical town comes to life early evening during the summer months. Wander through the cobbled streets lined with white washed houses and restaurants.
• Peniche. Every evening the fishing boats leave harbour and return to port during the early morning with their catches. The catches are on sale that day in the big covered market in the centre of town and in the many fish restaurants throughout the town. You can book fishing trips and day trips to the Berlenga Islands in the harbour.
• Bomborral. I use Bomborral for everyday needs. It has good restaurants, the best piri piri restaurant where you can eat in for around £7 a head for all food and wine or collect and take back to the villa on your way home from a day out. It is also famous for its wine making. There are two vineyards you can tour before sampling and buying to take back and enjoy in the villa.
Further afield, in less than 30 minutes drive, you have the Foz da Arelho lagoon with its beautiful beach and many bars and restaurants, also the market town of Caldas da Rainha. Here you will find the best selection of shops and also a daily market selling basket ware, flowers, fruit, veg and other foods.
You have at least four beaches less than a fifteen minute drive and several golf courses less than 30 minutes away.
There are also two go karting tracks within a 10 minute drive of the villa.
