About Helena Furtado

I have always loved nature and above all the sea and deserted beaches.

Baleal is one of the few beaches where on a few walks, even in mid-summer, we can be alone and feel the magical atmosphere that surrounds us. I am a psychologist living in Lisbon and my life has some very stressful moments. I escape to Baleal by the sea to ground myself.The soothing sound of the sea rocking me to sleep and the salty smell of the tide and the algae in the morning help me to cope with manic days in the city. I also love to dine on seafood or fresh fish accompanied by a fine wine and often take advantage of the great prices on offer in the area.

Helena Furtado purchased this house in 2006

Why Helena Furtado chose Baleal

Baleal is one of the most stunning beaches in the country with soft, white sands and clear waters.The natural scenery, the sweet smell of the tide, and the locals' simple friendliness are typical of this rural, fishing region and give it a special charm.Young surfers from all over the world give colour and liveliness to the beach. Here you can go on long walks through areas where your sole companions will the sea gulls and the waves. I have come on holidays to Baleal since I was little. It is still my favourite beach and is a big part of my life and now that of my daughters too who started bodyboarding from a young age here.

What makes this house unique

It is a privilege to be so close to non-polluted waters and a large beach, not to mention the wonderful fish.

Appartement vieillissant, mal entretenu

  • 1 of 5

Appartement calme très bien situé près de la mer. L'appartement a souffert de l'humidité ambiante permanente (forte odeur de moisi dans la maison). La cuisine est mal équipée (lave-vaisselle très bruyant, micro-ondes inutilisable, casseroles en très mauvais état). L'appartement n'était pas nettoyé avant notre arrivée : vitres des fenêtres très sales, joint du frigo moisi, intérieur du micro-onde sale, séchoir pour le linge rouillé (remplacé par la propriétaire à notre demande). Nous étions très déçus par cette location et nous n'y reviendrons probablement pas.

Owner's Response: Avec un commentaire aussi négatif et la notation la plus basse de la grille, je vous avoue que j'ai d'abord était sidérée, puis finalement choquée. Quoiqu'il en soit, je vais tenter de rester dans le pragmatisme et l'objectivité et tâcher de ne pas avoir de jugement de valeur. Tout d'abord, il est bon de noter que l'une des caractéristiques de cette maison, qui la rend d'ailleurs attrayante, est la proximité de l'Océan (50mètres). Cette région du pays est particulièrement humide et parfois secouée par de forts vents de l'Atlantique. L'entretien des maisons dans cette zone côtière doit être constante et les résultats ne restent visibles qu'un court laps de temps. Cela signifie que les fenêtres peuvent devenir moins transparente d'un jour à l'autre, que le mobilier peut retenir plus ou moins d'humidité, selon le temps pendant lequel l'appartement reste fermé. Ce sont quelques-unes des conséquences de l'emplacement du logement, qu'il est très difficile de contourner ou de contrôler. Quoi qu'il en soit, cet appartement est régulièrement nettoyé et aéré, de plus, il n'est pas inhabité pendant l'hiver. Le nettoyage de l'appartement et l'entretien du linge comme des équipements, relèvent évidemment de la responsabilité du propriétaire. J'AFFIRME que mon appartement est toujours CORRECTEMENT NETTOYE, RANGE et INSPECTE avant chaque "check-in". C'est un fait qui n'admet pas de subjectivité et il est donc totalement FAUX de dire que "la maison n'avait pas été nettoyée avant l'arrivée des hôtes". La cuisine est entièrement équipée, de plus le lave-linge et le lave-vaisselle sont neufs. Je n'ai jamais prêté attention au bruit du lave-vaisselle, car il ne m'a jamais dérangé et personne ne s'est jamais plaint. La cuisine étant suffisamment éloignée de la salle de séjour et encore plus des chambres. Par rapport au micro-ondes, je suis surprise de n'avoir pas été prévenue pendant le séjour, comme ce fût le cas pour l'étendoir. Je regrette que ce commentaire ait eu pour seul objectif de dénigrer, sur la base d'arguments douteux, voire faux. Heureusement qu'avec la plupart de mes hôtes, j'ai pu apprendre et améliorer ma prestation. Il est vrai que dans ce type de relation, c'est moi qui prends les risques et qui suis en position vulnérable. Il est facile, par la critique, de déprécier ma maison ainsi que ma réputation tout en gardant l'anonymat (les commentaires n'étant pas identifiés).

spacieux et idéalement placé

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine dans l'appartement. La vue océan est extraordinaire, la présence de jardins aussi. Cela permet à de jeunes enfants de s'amuser et aux adultes de faire un barbecue ou de faire des repas à l'extérieur.

La situation géographique est idéale, des sentiers de promenades avec accès à la plage à moins de 50m sont bien accessibles.

L'appartement est très spacieux, bien équipé, joliment décoré. les chambres à l'étage permettent de pouvoir respecter la tranquillité des uns sans empêcher les autres de continuer à passer d'agréables moments au salon et à la cuisine en rez de chaussée.

Helena, (la propriétaire) a toujours était disponible pour nous répondre si besoin. il y a de grandes chances que l'on revienne!!

Uma casa de Sonho num dos melhores spots de surf

  • 5 of 5

De facto foi uma excelente experiência acordar e ver a praia. A casa proporciona a calma necessária para um fim de semana de surf, praia e amigo. Com uma excelente decoração e acima de tudo muito bem cuidada. Foram os detalhes que fizeram também diferença, uma aparelhagem com uma óptima selecção musical, TV, cozinha ampla e uma sala espectacular e muito bem decorada. A voltar de certeza absoluta… Internet (é só ir ao café do lado - Buzio :) )

Owner's Response: Como é bom saber que ficaram satisfeitos e que pretendem voltar! Também terei o maior gosto em os receber de novo. Apesar de haver net gratuita no café ao lado vou tentar resolver essa situação . A questão é que sou obrigada a colocar uma parabólica que sinceramente considero inestético até porque com a proximidade do mar se vai deteriorar rapidamente. Mas enfim, vai ter de ser! Até Breve!

Wunderschönes Haus in herrlicher Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind in den Osterferien als Familie mit zwei Schulkindern zum Wellenreiten nach Peniche/Baleal gereist. Schlichtweg begeistert waren wir von Helenas Haus mit Meerblick. Es war in tadellosem Zustand und bietet, alles, was man braucht. Außerdem ist es sehr geräumig und wirklich hübsch eingerichtet und liegt in einer schönen grünen Anlage lärmgeschützt von der Straße. Der Blick auf das Meer ist grandios. In dem einen Schlafzimmer ist zum Einschlafen nur das Meeresrauschen zu hören. Die Jungs haben den Garten mit Begeisterung zum Kicken genutzt. Die Vermieterin ist überaus zuvorkommend und flexibel. Wir sind nachts angereist, alles kein Problem. Verschiedene Surfspots sind zu Fuß zu erreichen, genauso wie ein Supermarkt und verschiedene Restaurants. Wir waren erst zum zweiten Mal in Portugal und haben diese Region gleich in unser Herz geschlossen. Die Menschen sind freundlich, die Landschaft herrlich und nicht hoffnungslos verbaut. Helenas Haus empfehlen wir gerne weiter. Auch wir werden sicherlich wieder herkommen! Obrigada Helena!

Owner's Response: Os comentários que recebo são sempre muito importantes pois permitem sempre melhorar o que é menos bom e manter o que normalmente agrada. Tento receber toda a gente como recebo os meus amigos ou a familia e nada me dá mais satisfação do que ver e sentir um agrado genuino sobre as férias, o local, a casa e a forma como foram recebidos. Nada me dá mais satisfação do que me despedir com um "Até breve!" The comments I get are always very important since they allow to always improve what is less good and maintain what usually pleases. I try to receive everyone as I receive my friends or family and nothing gives me more satisfaction than to see and feel a genuine liking for the holidays, the place, the house and how they were received. Nothing gives me more satisfaction than to say goodbye with a "See you soon!"

"Grand appartement duplex très agréablement décoré et lumineux. Il est parfaitement situé avec une jolie vue sur la mer. Au bout du jardin, un petit sentier descend jusqu''à la plage. Si vous aimez la nature, c''est un endroit parfait pour de longues et splendides promenades le long de la mer. C''est également une plage de surfeurs avec de nombreuses écoles à proximité (dont une juste à coté de la maison ou j''ai pris mes cours sous les conseils de madame Furtado. Je vous les conseille vivement. http://www.dropsurfcenter.com/#

madame Furtado, la propriétaire, était disponible avant et pendant le séjour pour des conseils, infos,...

Avec une voiture de location, les villes de sintra, lisboa, obidos sont facilement accessible.

Un séjour parfait!!!!!

Baleal, Lagido surf
Car: recommended

Baleal beach with its fine white sands is one of the most beautiful beaches in Portugal. Surf enthusiasts will find an array of surf schools and enjoy clear waters that almost always offer optimal surf conditions.

Peniche, a seaside city, is 3 km away and is well know for its fresh fish and sea food that you can try in many restaurants. From Cabo Carvoeiro you will have clear views of the Berlengas archipelago, its rocks sweep down to meet the sea and it is a beautiful location; especially for sunbathing. You can catch a boat from Penich to visit Berlenga — a beautiful, wild nature reserve on an island.

Nazaré beach, well known for its huge waves, is about a 30-minute drive away. Culture enthusiasts will enjoy excursions to Óbidos Castle that is a 15-minute drive away.

Alcobaça, Batalha, and the S. Martinho do Porto beach are all in a 50 km radius and are well worth a visit.

You can play golf facing the waves on one of the most attractive golf courses in the country: Bético (8 km away).

Lisbon, the capital city, with its many places to visit, beauty, monuments, and history is a just an hour away by car.
