Families with looking for an easy beach holiday with a few amenities on tap. Also a good choice for golfing couples. 


  • Toddlers – two steep flights of stairs lead down to the pool/garden area. Most of the garden is gravelled, decked, or on a steep hill.
  • Teenagers -  Praia d’El Rey resort offers beach and activities such as surfing, tennis & cycling
  • Reduced mobility – there are bedrooms at ground floor level, however there is a flight of stairs down to the pool/garden area and steps up to the terrace area which is on the first floor


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.


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.

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.

House Rules

No smoking inside


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.

Day Trip Ideas

  • Visit Obidos and split the day discovering the historic walled town and the beautiful tidal lagoon
  • Boat trip from Peniche to the beautiful Berlenga Islands & marine nature reserve for snorkeling or even scuba-diving
  • Definitely head for Ericeira, an historic fishing port about 45 minutes’ drive south, and explore the cobbled streets. There are lovely beaches with excellent surf either side of the town too – try Ribiero (north) and Lisandro (south)
  • Feeling beach out – several historic or religious centres are nearby, including Mafra, Fatima, Batalha and the remarkable Sintra palace & park near Estoril – if you only manage one pick this one!
  • Explore the cosmopolitan streets of downtown Lisbon - one of southern Europe's most historic cities

The Local Area

For visitors who like to explore the area where they are staying, the Silver Coast provides a variety of exciting things to do and places to visit for all the family, offering a superb blend of beachescuisineculture and activities.

Whether you want to discover another superb beach, visit an historic town, taste the local wines, take the kids go-karting or take a boat trip to an island, there are many opportunities to get out and about. 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:

  • Drive to Obidos station and then take a train to the city
  • Hire a taxi there and back
  • Join an organised excursion to the city
  • Tag a city hotel stay on to the start or end of your visit 


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:

Water parks
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.

Go Karts
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.

Dinokart go karting at Lourinha Portugal Silver Coast
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.

Soft Play
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!

Lisbon Attractions
The capital city justifies at least one day-out with the kids…

  • Oceanario de Lisboa – the second largest oceanarium in the world, built around a pier on the Expo site
  • Zoological park
  • Football-crazy kids will love a visit to the arenas of Sporting Lisbon or Benfica
  • The toy museum at nearby Sintra is a fun excursion too, as is the Jurassic museum at Lourinha which includes the world's largest collection of dinosaur eggs.


  • Mafra and Fatima are the best-known but there are plenty to choose from

Service: Very helpful staff. Always on end of the phone. We were able to check in to the property early in arrival day as it was not being used. Welcome pack was delivered and helpful advice given in addition to a useful file in house.

Product: Property was well equipped, spacious, comfortable with amazing sunsets from the roof.

Service: Having never been to the area, or the particular complex, they were very knowledgeable about both and their advice was both instrumental in us deciding to go ahead with the booking and was accurate once we got there.

Product: Excellent villa, really suited our group. It was well equipped and generally in good order. We had a couple of things that needed sorting out during our stay but the management company dealt with these immediately and to our satisfaction.
