About the property

Sun Drenched Family Friendly Beach Villa For 4-8 People, Perfect For Relaxing

Casa Pinha is a private home away from home set in a private, exclusive and gated development called Vila dos Principes managed by its owners. Vila dos Principes is build in traditional highest quality Portuguese style with cobbled lanes, Portuguese tiling’s and extensive use of Portuguese marble. Well kept private gardens are mature and grown with extensive range of pine and palm trees lining the private lanes together with extensive flowerbeds. The small private 5* development has 3 (seasonally) heated pools with children pools separate. Each pool has an extensive number of sun loungers and umbrellas for its owner residents or guests. The Development is part of the larger Praia d'El Rey Resort with a 5* Marriott Hotel. Praia del Rey has received many prestigious awards.

Casa Pinha is the only house that gets sun all day and has total un-obtrusive privacy. It is literally seconds away from golf and minutes from some of the most glorious and unspoiled beaches in Europe. The house and area makes for a perfect holiday away from it all with fun for all. The climate is highly pleasant (not too hot), has plenty of local traditional restaurants, local markets selling local produce, one of the best wine growing areas in Europe and lots of fun activities for children and the whole family. During summer months there are extensive kids club activities as well as tennis and golf academies for children /teenagers. All kinds of personalized activities can be arranged for you as well incl bicycle rental, tours, canoeing on Obidos Lagoon etc.

There is an extensive Insider Guide and tips available in Casa Pinha for guests and we can provide assistance in pre-planning your trip as we know the area inside out. This helps you get the best from your holiday right from the first day.

The area is full of World Heritage Sites such as Obidos, a real well kept Jewel Hilltop town with castle and a year-round program of activities like Piano, Opera, Medieval or Chocolate Festivals. Close by Surfing and Fishing town Peniche offers Fishing tours and Boat Trips to for example “Berlinga Grande”, a nature reserve island where dolphins can be spotted and breeding grounds of seldom birds be seen. And so on. There are so many things to do and explore in this unique area, best to check out all the possibilities.

Casa Pinha with its high quality furniture and attention to all details is very relaxing and furnished as a home, not a 'holiday rental'.

About Christiane & Helmut Schoen

We are a German couple living in Switzerland and have owned Casa Pinha since 2003. We lived for over 20 years in London and moved to Switzerland in 2007. We have 4 children, 2 of them have finished their studies in the UK (Imperial College and Durham) and 2 still go to school in Switzerland.

Christiane & Helmut Schoen purchased this villa in 2003

Why Christiane & Helmut Schoen chose Praia D'el Rey

We have holidayed in most typical areas in Europe where we have intended to maybe buy a place as well. We have been to Tuscany, Ibiza, Majorca, Spain and more - all had one problem: it was very touristy during main seasons, mostly too hot and mostly everything was overpriced. We did not have Portugal on our list originally until we stumbled across this part of Portugal. That seemed to have what we were looking for. Beautiful nature, unspoiled and vast beaches, great food, local markets for the locals, pleasant and reliable climate but not steaming hot during summer. This was it.

Originally we always wanted to have a stand alone villa, but heard from friends that with children it is best if all can do different things without needing to drive them around. Casa Pinha offered all that as we are minutes away from different activities and we have not regretted a single day of it.

The kids and us have and still are thoroughly enjoying our home here and we like to invite like minded couples of families to come and enjoy it as much as we do. It is equipped like a real home to feel relaxed and comfortable in and enjoy this beautiful and unspoilt area that has everything you wish for to offer: great golf, tennis, 5* Marriott, unspoiled beaches, water-sports of all kinds, fine food, amazing vines, local festivals, fruit & vegetable markets, steeped in history and World Heritage sites.

What makes this villa unique

We both have high standards and can be picky, but we were convinced when we saw the build quality and specification list for Vila dos Principes / Casa Pinha: only finest and quality materials, use Portugues marble, highest quality doors, double glazing windows and more. It was clear that this was based on quality. The craftsmanship continues to impress us. We have owned Casa Pinha for more than 10 years now and the house has no cracks, no issues, nothing. This list of unique benefits is long, but lets start:

- Quality build houses and materials

- Sun all day and privacy in an exclusive owner management 5* development

- Furnished like a home not a 'rental' - you walk in and relax immediately (we do at least)

- Pools are seconds away, always perfected looked after

- Golf driving range, Club House, 1st tee 2 minutes walk away

- Tennis courts are a few minutes away - we are a tennis family

- The beaches can be reached in a few minutes and never stop to amaze us: nobody there on endless stretches of white sand - hard to find in Europe

- The air is wonderful and tiring - nowhere do we sleep better then here

- Local Restaurants and fresh fish: unspoiled traditional cooking in family restaurants

-Great world class wine growing area

-Region steeped in World heritage sites including Obidos

- A walk by the beach during sundown stays with you for many months

-Local Markets where farmers sell their produce at ridiculously low prices and amazing quality

-Kids Club actives, golf and tennis academies for those sporty kids

You can be as active or as lazy as you like, Casa Pinha is the perfect setting for both

Wunderbarer Ort zum Erholen und Entspannen

  • 5 of 5

Wir (Familie mit 2 Kindern) waren bereits das zweite Mal hier und sind begeistert von der gepflegten Anlage, dem großzügigen Haus und der tollen Lage. Unsere Kinder halten sich am liebsten am oder in einem der drei Pools auf, wir liegen gerne auf der Terrasse oder auf dem Balkon und gemeinsam verbringen wir viel Zeit am Strand mit langen Spaziergängen...die Lage der Ferienanlage ist prima für Tagesausflüge in die Umgebung, zum Schwimmen in der Bucht von Obidos, zum Segeln und Joggen. Das Haus ist großzügig, sehr schön und geschmackvoll eingerichtet, die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet und hat alles was man sich wünscht. Gerne kochen wir gemeinsam am Abend und genießen die Terrasse.

Der Kontakt zu den Besitzern und der Verwaltung nett und unkompliziert. Wir haben uns wunderbar wohlgefühlt und kommen sehr gerne wieder. Unser achtjähriger Sohn machte die treffende Aussage: "Es ist hier wie ein zu Hause."

Cominh Home!

  • 5 of 5

Vor 2 Jahren waren wir (4-köpfige Familie mit fast erwachsenen Kindern) das erste mal im Casa Pinha. Nun sind wir mit einer befreundeten Familie und damit insgesamt 7 Erwachsenen zurückgekehrt und es war wie nach Hause zu kommen! Das Haus und die gesamte Anlage haben nichts an Ihrem Charme und an ihrer Anziehungskraft verloren. Wir haben zu siebt eine völlig entspannte Woche mit viel Zeit beim Surfen in Peniche, beim Golfen, am Pool oder auf der Terrasse mit Kaffee und Bolos oder einem Porttonic verbracht. In der Regel haben wir gemeinsam in der toll eingerichteten Küche gekocht oder die tollen Produkte des örtlichen Metzgers gegrillt. Wir kommen wieder. Casa Pinha hat einen Spitzenplatz in meinen persönlichen Alltagsfluchtdestinationen.

The perfect escape

  • 5 of 5

If you are prepared to travel independently in Portugal this is the perfect escape - you will want for nothing. Ideally located between Lisbon and Porto, all you need to keep your fingers crossed about is the weather!

Booking was smooth - communication was great from the word go and the system in place was clear and simple.

The information available was tremendous - detailed and something to inform all the family. No issues finding the agents and then the house.

The House: It is as you can see online.- truly a home from home. It had everything and was in a perfect setting. A welcome pack awaits and there are plenty shops within a short drive away. Surrounded by golf courses and beaches there is something for everyone - our teens spent a lot of time surfing while we walked for miles on the beaches.

Steeped in history, local attractions, sights and restaurants are plentiful and Helmut & Chrsitiane the owners dont leave you in the dark - they have prepared a great local guide and maps are ready to use.

A special mention - The agents/cleaners are very helpful and attentive - we didnt have a probelm but I was absolutely confident that nothing would presented any difficulty for them. We'll be back!

12 days of bliss for all the family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Pinha for 12 days in mid September. The villa is exactly as described on HomeAway with fully equipped kitchen, spacious living area, and 4 bedrooms. The villa is furnished to a high standard, and we found everything that we looked for.

Our party comprised of 1 baby (12 months) a child (3 years), ourselves, and my parents. The villa included everything you needed for the baby, from the cot and high chair to the plastic cutlery and plates. The guides for the area, things to do and directions from the airport are very welcomed, and the welcome basket of food essentials (including wine), is a very nice touch.

The villa is located close to one of the pools, the grounds are beautifully maintained, and all within a gated community.

The club house is a short walk, they were happy to have children there and we found it to be affordable. The golf course was excellent and staff all friendly.

In arranging the stay I reached out to owners, they were very friendly, spoke good english. We would definitely recommend a stay at Casa Pinha.

Wunderschöne Tage in Casa Pinha

  • 5 of 5

Casa Pinha ist ein sehr entspannender Ort für die ganze Familie, in einer landschaftlich reizvollen Umgebung, die vielfältige Aktivitäten von Sport und Kultur erlaubt. Die Vermieter bieten den Gästen ein Haus mit geschmackvoller, persönlicher Einrichtung von hoher Qualität in allen Bereichen an. So lässt z.B. die komfortable und umfangreiche Ausstattung der Küche keine Wünsche offen. Selbst für einige Lebensmittel zur Ankunft war gesorgt worden. Das Informationsmaterial zum Resort und der Region war wirklich beeindruckend. Die private Anlage ist hervorragend gepflegt und die Betreuung vor Ort ausgezeichnet. Ein wunderbarer Aufenthalt, der lange in Erinnerung bleibt.

Vielen herzlichen Dank an die Vermieter!
