This is no 'ordinary' resort villa - the owners have invested much thought and energy into this holiday villa. Traditional yet modern, Escarlate offers a great package of benefits to its guests:

  • Stunning 13 m pool for swimming proper lengths!
  • A genuinely short walk to the local sandy beach of Praia D'El Rey
  • All 6 bedrooms are en-suite
  • Sunset roof terrace
  • Tasteful, traditional furnishings, Portuguese tiles and floorings - you're on a resort but you'll find touches of real Portugal at Casa Escarlate
  • Enjoy resort facilities - golf, tennis, spa, fitness, kids' clubs, restaurants, etc (local charges apply)


Generously sized, the villa is perfect for larger group gatherings whether it's 2 or 3 families sharing the house or an extended multi-generation family.

In the mid & low seasons it's a great choice for groups of golfers.


  • Toddlers - note there is a low boundary wall in the garden and high quality furnishings inside. The owners prefer not to take young children aged between 1 and 3
  • Teenagers - wifi, dvd player, walk to beach, sports facilities on the resort
  • Reduced mobility - not suitable due to lots of steps


Groups with young children should be aware of the delicate nature of furnishing inside the villas and the low boundary wall by the pool - please contact us for guidance.

There is wifi in the house but because it's so vast, the signal is limited tho the ground floor area.

There is an adjacent villa quite close to the low boundary wall, however, the outside space & pool of that villa is on the other side of the property (zoom in on the map using satellite view).


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.


Vast villa in a traditional style with superb pool, terraces and charming Portuguese interior

We're used to seeing a lot of 'resort villas' which follow a certain template so it's refreshing to find a villa where the owners have taken the time to instil a genuine flavour of Portugal. The beautiful Portuguese furnishings display genuine craftsmanship, complemented by marble floorings and locally sourced materials.

What's more, the villa is cavernous! It can easily soak up two families such that you would still feel a sense of space and privacy.

All bedrooms have aircon.


As expected the entrance hall is of a generous size and this leads into an attractive kitchen and a vast open-plan lounge & dining room. This room is naturally lit through its numerous French doors and feels bright and fresh. From the living room you have access to a sunny terrace overlooking the lovely pool. The kitchen features azulejos portuguese - beautiful hand-painted tiles.

Also at ground level you have three bedrooms:

  • Bedroom 1 - ensuite bathroom; bed can be double or two singles
  • Bedroom 2 - ensuite bathroom; beds can be double or two singles
  • Bedroom 3 - ensuite shower room; single bed

On the ground floor is a separate guest WC.


  • Bedroom 4 - stunning master bedroom featuring: hand-made traditional wood (double) bed; french doors to terrace overlooking pool and golf course with the ocean beyond; study area; ensuite bathroom with jacuzzi bath
  • Bedrooms 5 & 6 - both with: hand-made double beds; ensuite bathroom with hand-made Portuguese tiles; terrace overlooking pool.


The top level of the villa features a roof terrace with stunning views of the resort and ocean towards the Ilhas Belengas. This is the best place to enjoy the amazing sunsets.


The villa enjoys one of the largest plots on the resort - a double plot in fact. 

  • Stunning private swimming pool, 13 m in length and depth to 2.1m
  • 6 sun loungers
  • Outside shower
  • Large lawn for children's games

House Rules

No pets on the resort. No smoking


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. 

The villa enjoys a very convenient location on the resort, just a short walk to the beach, hotel and clubhouse. Situated on a large, double plot, the villa has one close neighbour whose pool/outside space is on the opposite side of that property.

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
