Guestbook comments from the owner

Arriving for the second time this year in Foz do Arelho, we were on a mission to buy a property for our next home. Location was important as we wanted to experience where we were buying. Selecting this condo was such a reward as it is only two blocks from our lot. First, the condo was presented by Maria, who welcomed us with fresh fruits from her gardens as well as fresh flowers. The condo is well appointed with everything one would need in a home. It is clean, spacious, bright and light. The views are amazing. Sipping wine on the terrace, overlooking the ocean and the Obidos Lagoon was such a treat every evening. The underground parking was a nice plus. The location proved that the car was rarely needed though as we could walk to the coffee shop in the mornings, continue on for a walk along the beach and in the evenings we could walk to a number of very good restaurants. The location of Foz do Arelho in Portugal is so central to everything. Just an hour from Lisboa, minutes to Caldas das Rainha and Obidos, close to Nazare and then just a couple hour drive up to Porto. The area is filled with so many day trips, but if you just want to relax by the beautiful pool, walk on the beach and feel totally at home, this is a wonderful unit to enjoy. I might add that the building is well built, thus it is totally quiet inside. The cool ocean breezes flow through, keeping it fresh all day and night. The well stocked kitchen allows for you to go to the markets, return a prepare the smallest or largest feast you could want. As we build our home in Foz do Arelho, we will return to this wonderful unit on our visits.

Great apartment in wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Lucinia's apartment which was spacious, clean and had everything you need for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. On site there is a swimming pool so you can chill out there but the beach and the lagoon is really something special, just a few minutes walk away down the hill. We spent a lot of time there, here you get a nice refreshing Atlantic breeze. Foz itself is a lovely place with several good seafront resturants very close to the apartment and others in the village a few minutes drive or 20 minute walk away where there's also a local supermarket. Everyone we met was very friendly. I have teenagers who were able to go out and stay out quite late perfectly safely and they made friends with some of the locals. All in all, a memorable week and I would love to return one day. You can't go wrong here and the apartment was a perfect place to base ourselves.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Would totally recommend this property if you are looking for a relaxing quiet vacation.excellent facilities.

Foz is off the beaten path but well worth a visit.It is hilly so If you struggle to walk up and down steps and slopes this may not be for you.

Home owner Licinia answered emails very quickly, great communication, even mailed the keys prior to arrival because we were not sure what time we would arrive!

Great little supermarket in town which is a short drive, plus we ate in the Pizza place next door a lot. We also tried surf lessons with the school in Caldas , Antonio picked us up from the condo! Totally recommended.

A Wonderful Apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a really good apartment for a holiday or break in Foz do Arelho and the surrounding area. The apartment is clean, well equipped, in a really nice development and perfectly located for the fantastic beach. Nearby are several excellent beach-front cafes and restaurants and the village of Foz, with further amenities and a choice of good restaurants, is within walking distance.

The owner provided comprehensive information which helped us immensely and we received excellent personal customer service throughout.

Really comfortable, well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just stayed for 2 weeks in August and found the apartment very spacious and comfortable for our party of 5 (3 adults and 2 children). We had a warm welcome when we arrived. The kitchen is very well equipped with plenty of cutlery, crockery and other equipment. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and there is a lovely open plan sitting room and dining area. The children loved the 3 tier pool which we usually had to ourselves in the morning/early afternoon despite it being peak holiday season. There are great views of the pool and beach from the balcony, with the beach and lagoon within easy reach. The underground garage was a bonus as parking is very difficult at peak times. We found the ability to use beach towels, sun umbrellas and beach toys at the apartment particularly useful. All round a great place to stay.

First of all, the house has an AMAZING view!

Rated one of the very best in Europe the stunning beach of Foz do Arelho is very popular with families as well as young couples.
