Many of the beach side restaurants have taken advantage of the stunning coastal scenery, positioning table to look out over the setting sun, far over the Atlantic horizon, making diner in one of Foz Do Arelho’s restaurants an unforgettable evening.

Despite our late arrival due to a long wait for our hire cars at Lisbon airport, we received a very warm welcome from Andrea and Martin, who were so helpful advising us of places to visit, eat and shop. The villa is extremely well equipped, the owners have thought of absolutely everything which made our visit so comfortable. Even visits to the beach were catered for with kayaks, towels, chairs, windbreak, small tent, cool box and importantly for our 3 year old buckets and spades. The pool was a real bonus and to be honest we found it difficult to drag ourselves away from the villa. The welcome pack provided was indeed very welcome especially the cold 'superbok' beers. The weather was fabulous helping to make this a truly exceptional two weeks in a truly exceptional property. We would love to return and highly recommend a visit.

Directions to find the apartment were clear & easy to follow , Alison the manager was very helpful and provided us with a lot of interesting information about the area. We both enjoyed a lovely stay at Chris & Carole's apartment and hope to return again in 2017. Thank you.
