WHAT MAKES VILLA BERLENGA A GREAT HOLIDAY RENTAL:
Families with looking for an easy beach holiday with a few amenities on tap. Also a good choice for golfing couples.
ANYTHING TO WATCH OUT FOR?
A car is necessary to reach some amenities such as a supermarket and to explore the area - which we throughly recommend.
Please note pools in Portugal are not required to have child security protection.
WHY PRAIA D'EL REY?
Just to the north of Peniche is a string of superb sandy beaches including Praia d'El Rey.
Praia d’El Rey is a purpose-built resort situated on a fabulous stretch of Atlantic coastline in western Portugal. It is perhaps most famous for its championship golf course. However, you don’t have to be a golfer to enjoy this location. With the beach at your fingertips, activities such as swimming, sailing or surfing are available, or you could choose to just relax. The resort is beautifully maintained and because it's spread over a wide area it never feels crowded or busy.
If you are willing to go further afield, the historic walled town of Obidos is 30 minutes by car, and Lisbon is just over an hour’s drive away. There are many fabulous beaches to explore too.
Comfortable villa with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a private pool
Berlenga is a good value choice for a villa with its own pool.
The accommodation is not luxurious but very comfortable and with a 'homely' feel. The villa comes well-equipped for an easy, relaxing holiday by the beach.

Praia d'El Rey lies on the 'Silver Coast' between the fishing town of Peniche (15 km) and the beautiful walled village of Obidos (20 km). Lisbon is just under 100 km south and the drive from the airport takes little more than 1 hour.
PDR is a resort designed to give you everything you need (activities, beach, places to eat) in one place.
The resort is built around the famous golf links, fringed by the Atlantic Ocean and a glorious, wild stretch of silver sands backed by dunes and cliffs. Covering an area of 230 hectares, the resort has a large footprint but you never feel over-crowded.
Villa Berlenga enjoys an enviable location on the resort, just a short walk to the beach and hotel amenities. The villa plot is secluded and peaceful and thanks to its slightly elevated location enjoys fabulous ocean and sunset views.

And you can book excursions and local visits via the concierge staff at Praia D'El Rey resort.
We highly recommend visiting Lisbon during your stay on the Silver Coast. However, taking a car into the city is an unecessary stress - there are some relaxing options to think about, all of which the local team at PDR can assist you with:
FUN FOR THE KIDS
Don’t forget there’s a wealth of activities available on-site and activities which the resort staff will organise for you – see the Sports & Leisure tab. For fun days out, here's a few ideas:
heading north up the coast, just beyond Nazaré, is Norpark, a family friendly water park with water slides for kids of all ages. Allow 45-60 minutes to drive there. For the little ones, there’s also a large play pool whilst more accomplished swimmers will enjoy the semi-Olympic-sized. To round off a relaxing day, facilities also include a hydro massage pool, giant Jacuzzi and restaurant.
On the outskirts of Peniche is Sportagua. Younger ones will love splashing around safely in the children’s pool (max depth 60cm). It’s a fun place to try a variety of water chutes working your way up to the Kamikaze slide! Restaurant on-site.

The Silver Coast villa resorts are in close proximity to two karting arenas – a morning’s excursion for dad and the boys? Resort staff can help you make a booking.

Kiro-Karting go karting at Bombarral Portugal Silver Coast
10-pin bowling complex with pool tables, etc at Caldas da Rainha. Only a 20 minute drive from the villa resorts on the coast.
Also at Caldas da Rainha, this play centre is an indoor facility with soft climbing area, a bouncy castle, soft mini football pitch and a separate soft play area for toddlers. Handy café for adults!
The capital city justifies at least one day-out with the kids…
