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.

Service: The service was excellent. I had several queries about the property both before and after booking and all my questions were answered swiftly and comprehensively. I was really impressed by the friendly but professional way in which all my emails were answered. I couldn’t fault this company and would definitely book with them again.
Product: A lovely villa with a fantastic pool. It had everything we could possibly wish for although we weren’t too sure how we were supposed to cook on the barbecue (appealingly rustic but maybe a little too rustic!!) so only used it once. It could almost be a 5 star villa but I get easily frustrated by silly things like lack of space to store groceries in the kitchen (loads of cupboards but all filled with utensils) and the fact that the mosaic tiles kept coming off in the pool. Really trivial, I know...It is a beautiful villa which I would thoroughly recommend.
Product Comment: I agree it's a lovely villa, one of my favourites on the Praia Del Rey estate. I've noted your comments about the kitchen storage and pool tiles - we'll follow these up with the local property manager. I like your comments about the BBQ too - thank you!
