WHAT MAKES CASA CANDEEIROS A GREAT HOLIDAY RENTAL?
Ideal for younger families as well as older couples who prefer the peaceful setting.
ANYTHING TO WATCH OUT FOR?
This is a traditional casa and the accommodation is comfortable rather than contemporary (the kitchen is new though).
WHY FOZ DO ARELHO?
The small village of Foz do Arelho is an area of great natural beauty, with the Obidos Lagoon curling alongside it to meet the sea. It is a quiet, peaceful and relatively undiscovered location, perfect for relaxation. There are plenty of activities to try: sailing, SUP or kayaking in the lagoon and surfing in the Atlantic Ocean are on offer here. A short drive north along the Estrada Atlantica takes you to Salir & Sao Martinho do Porto with it's lovely curve of child-friendly beach.
If you are willing to go a little further afield, the historic castle town of Obidos is 15 minutes away by car and Lisbon is just over an hour’s drive.
Character casa in a private and peaceful location
This is a more traditional holiday home that will appeal primarily to younger families thanks to the secured private swimming pool.
The accommodation is comfortable and relaxing and the colourful gardens provide a relaxing space with plenty of shade and sunny spots.
The house has 3 bedrooms (1 double and 2 twins) all of which are en-suite.
New Scavolini Italian kitchen/dining room.
Spacious living room with leather suite and Satellite TV.
1 x double + 2 x twins
All bedrooms are en suite
Private heated pool approx 10 x 5 m
No pets & no smoking
The casa lies between the seaside villages of Foz do Arelho (5 km) and Salir do Porto (7 km). In between the two resorts is the coastal road - not that long ago it was a mere donkey track! This is most definitely a corner of Portugal that is 'real' and off-the-beaten track.
The house is found in a small hamlet, quite private and enjoying some fine countryside views.

What we also love about Foz & Salir:
The beach at Foz has Blue Flag status. It's easy to find your own space and you'll certainly feel this is an authentically-Portuguese seaside resort, undiscovered by mass market tourism. The Atlantic water is relatively cool so a wetsuit is a good idea. The shallow waters of the lagoon are warm though.
The lagoon is of course a perfect spot to practise your sailing skills or try it for the first time. Head to Escola de Vela da Lagoa. In fact, windsurf, kitesurf, catamaran, optimist, canoeing, wakeboard and water ski.
The beach at Foz is pounded by Atlantic waves although in summer the wave height is typically only 1 metre. The beach is lifeguarded in sumer. Families with younger kids 'into' surfing often head down to Baleal where the waves are better for beginners. The surf school - Foz Camp - are a fountain of knowledge regarding local currents and conditions.
Village shops include 3 mini supermarkets, pharmacy, pastelaria for fresh bread and pastries, bank with ATM, tourist office, florist and fishing tackle shop (fishing is very popular amongst the locals).
Salir & Sao Martinho do Porto
The half-moon bay of golden sands is protected by two headlands and subsequently this is an ideal place for younger kids to enjoy the ocean safely (the lagoon beaches at Foz are perfect also).
Both towns are relatively undeveloped and there's a good selection of restaurants and pastelarias to keep you fuelled for the day!
For a superb Portuguese meat-treat try Naco Na Pedra at Salir where they cook your steak to order on a hot stone - delicious!View More Foz do Arelho Rentals
