We had a super holiday relaxing, walking and eating out. The house is set in a beautifully kept private development, which is gated, the only gated condominium on the resort. After reading previous reviews, the house fully lived up to all expectations - the furnishing and decoration were immaculate. I am glad to say the weather was perfect for the time of year (last 2 weeks of September, first 2 weeks of October). There was sunshine everyday for four weeks and the temperature was between 21 and 25 degrees. The owners had provided a lovely Welcome Pack, which after a late flight was much appreciated, as we arrived after midnight and also then for breakfast in the morning. It was the first time I've slept in a four poster bed and it was very comfortable. The sun area on the upper terrace outside the master bedroom was perfect for tanning purposes, and lunch time drinks and food. We didn't use any of the toys and games provided, although I did fancy trying the bodyboards out, until I was reminded of my age and state of health! Walks along the beach at Praia del Rey were a true delight. The internet was both a fast speed, reliable and easy to access. Dining out is a real pleasure in Praia del Rey and the surrounding area. The “Bible” (the book of recommendations supplied by Debbie) has numerous suggestions for where to eat and the places to visit. We can particularly recommend Gaucho's in Baleal, where they serve a superb “Steak on a Stone”. Obidos is a beautiful medieval town where the quaint cobbled streets are lined with bougainvillea. It was our favourite. We also loved Peniche which is a working fishing port with lots of fish restaurants to choose from, and Sao Martinho is a must to visit. A beautiful bay with a superb beach, and good restaurants. We went to The Shrine of Fatima, about an hour away to the North East, and I would recommend a visit, even for those of other and no religions. Be prepared for a shock. It is an eye opener. It was nothing like what we had imagined. All in all did we like the house and area? Definitely. Would we recommend it? Definitely. Will we be coming back. Definitely.

With only one bathroom though for 4 adults needed organising! Outlook not brilliant but 10 minute walk to town & also to beach so quite convenient.
