About Kate Malone
We live in the UK and have our holiday home in Praia d'El Rey. As a family we have been coming to Portugal since we were young children 30+ years ago and have always loved the kindness of the Portuguese people and the beauty of the country. Since growing up and now having young families of our own, we love being able to spend time at our house in Portugal. We like to explore, have a bit of beach time - all the children have learned to surf and play golf in the last couple of years - and pool fun and relaxation. We adore the food and culture of Lisbon but more than anything, have found that this is the one holiday destination where we truly relax.
Kate Malone purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Kate Malone chose Praia D'el Rey
We bought the house here in Praia d'El Rey because it still feels like the 'real' Portugal in this area. It doesn't have the intense heat of the Algarve, but regularly hits 30 degrees in the summer - plenty hot enough with our young children! The beaches are fabulous - miles and miles of sand, and many of those miles with hardly a soul on them - and with our family members being keen tennis players, golfers and surfers, there is masses for us to do in the area. We have explored the immediate vicinity and love the beaches, restaurants, small pretty towns, and further afield have rather fallen in love with Lisbon and Porto. For teens, as well as the golf and tennis, there is a go-karting, paint balling, bowling, sailing, surfing and a vibrant night life in the nearby towns of Ferrel and Baleal.
What makes this Villa unique
The house is well laid out. We usually go on our own as a family of 4 or with another family, when each family can have a floor to themselves, or the adults can be on one floor with all the children on another. We have set the house up to be flexible in this way - with twins made up as a superking bed on the ground floor if required. We had the pool heated about 10 years ago and don't regret that for a second. Unheated pools on the resort can be very chilly and I for one prefer a balmy 29 degrees before I will swim! We like to keep things simple when we are in our home from home. Some good music on, getting the guitar out, or grabbing wetsuits and heading down to the beach for a surf then a bbq with friends when we get back, and a movie for the kids - a perfect way to spend a holiday!

Worth the stay !
Everything was just great. The house is located in a wonderful place, close to many points of interest. A very wise choice if you want to stay in this area.
Thank you for your review - much appreciated. I hope the weather was kind and you got to try all the local golf courses. I'm thinking that West Cliffs may have been your favourite! Best regards, Kate
Great stay in a really nice property
Not easy to improve better service, facilities and environment. Many thanks
Thank you for your kind words. Glad you had a lovely holiday.
Best wishes, Kate
Wonderful classy villa. Catered for all our needs as a group of seven golfers. Loads of space for everyone . We used some of the games provided when we stayed in and had our pizza's!! Great location for the local golf courses which we all loved. Pool is great for a quick swim and heated!! Would definitely stay here again . Thanks Kate
Es ist ein absolut empfehlenswertes Feriendomizil!
Das Ferienhaus ist geschmacklich sehr schön eingerichtet. Bei der Ausstattung fehlt es an nichts. Alles ist sehr sauber und sehr gepflegt. Es gibt Ansprechpartner vor Ort, die immer sehr bemüht waren, uns jeden Wunsch zu erfüllen.
Thank you for your review. Veilen dank!
Coast / Beach: About a 10 - 15 minute walk from the house there are miles of unspoilt and very quiet sandy beaches - great for walking and popular for surfing. A 10 minute drive in one direction takes you to the small town of Baleal with some great beach bars and small restaurants and a very safe beach with its own surf schools and life guards. A 10 min dirve in the other direction takes you to the Lagoa de Obidos with shallow tidal waters - great for anything from paddling to rock-pooling to wind surfing and my newest addiction - paddle boarding!
