Quiet Week Along the Coast

  • 5 of 5

Having seen the photos before renting we were impressed. One of the things you need to know if staying here is the time of year. We Just got back yesterday and stayed the Last week of March 2017. The check-in when smoothly and Directions were done well and had no problems finding the Apartment/Condo. Praia D'el Rey is Part of a massive Marriott Golf Course Development with beautiful homes, etc. During this time except for the Marriott Hotel 98% of all homes and condos are shuttered up, but it was like that everywhere we went as far as coastal locations. Our Building it seemed had the only occupants 4 condos. While it is kinda like a ghost town it was a very relaxing experience as the restaurants were not busy and no hustle and bustle that you would expect during the summer months.

The Apartment/Condo was just like the photos and we had everything as if we were in our own home. We shopped in Obidos at the main grocery store, but there is a small one just under the restaurant less than a block down from the Apartment/condo that has a lot of items you could need.

1 day drives from here took us to many sites of interest in a very short time frame.

Overall we very very impressed and would either stay again if going back to Portugal or recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Good Afternoon Joseph, Thank you for your review and we are really happy that you had a good time at our Portuguese holiday home and in the surrounding area, as you said March is a quiet month at Praia D'El Rey, with more guests starting to arrive for Easter. It is nice to have the restaurants a little less busy though, we arrived the day you left and we enjoyed a relaxed stay also. You will be always welcome back in the future. Best regards, Simon

Great, relaxing stay!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful property and well maintained. Everything listed on VBRO was accurate except for the extra charges billed to me from Home Away right before our stay. I think the customer should know about this before seeing the charges on their credit card.The unit was cleaned and had everything we needed for a week's stay. There were a lot of instructions on the appliances, but the washing machine booklet was on the wrong model. They did a fantastic job on a book with information on the property, restaurants, instructions on how to get to different places and activities around the area. Simon, the owner was always on top of things. He responded quickly to all my emails.

Owner's Response: Good Afternoon Chris, We are really happy that you had a great relaxing holiday. With regards the additional service fee payment, this has been introduced this year by HomeAway, where all guests are now charged an additional service fee (which is shown on your quote when enquiring and booking) payable direct to HomeAway, and therefore unfortunately this fee is out of our control. Although we will be contacting HomeAway in due course to make our views on this matter known. With regards the washing machine instruction manual, I must admit I am not sure what the issue was, as the instruction manuals are the documents that came with the washing machine and we have used them several times after installation to be able to understand some of the settings as our Portuguese was not that good when we purchased the property. I do hope that you managed to use the washing machine satisfactorily though. Best regards, Simon

Home comforts just minutes from the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well located with a great view to the ocean from the balcony. The balcony is very well sheltered and overall the property is extremely well appointed and comfortable The location is terrific for exploring the region in a totally underrated country. We have visited P del R more than once before and will certainly return in the future.

Fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

We got a great first impression the moment we opened the door, which lasted our whole stay. The apartment is beautifully presented and very well equipped and spotless. We found it easily from the airport, following directions provided well in advance. The beach was pleasingly close-by and we had some great days out in Obidos (Medieval festival was great!), Peniche, Lisbon aswell as by the nearby lagoon. I even enjoyed reading of couple of books from the in-house "library"! All in all a very lovely holiday.

Toller Erholungsurlaub in fantastischer Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine tolle Zeit in der sehr schön gestalteten Wohnung verbracht. Hervorzuheben ist die wirklich schöne Aussicht von der Terrasse aus Richtung Meer. Durch die etwas zurück gesetzte Lage ist man auf der Terrasse auch gut vor dem Wind geschützt.

Das Ressort Praia D el Rey ist ziemlich abgelegen. D.h. wer Trubel oder Party sucht ist hier falsch.

Wer jedoch auf Erholung vom stressigen Alltag aus ist und z. B. lange Strandspaziergänge ohne viele Menschen schätzt ist hier richtig.

Was man wissen sollte wenn man in der Vorsaison und nicht direkt im Hochsommer anreist. Der Atlantik ist hier doch schon ziemlich heftig vom Wellengang und Strömung und auch ziemlich frisch. Das baden im Meer ist um diese Zeit eher etwas für Hartgesottene.

Allerdings gibt es in der Anlage einen beheizten Pool, insofern ist das nicht weiter tragisch. Wenn man wie wir mit einem Kleinkind unterwegs ist gibt es in ca. 10 Minuten Fahrtdauer mit dem Auto auch einen wunderschönen Strand (Lagoa de Obidos) an einer Lagune. Hier ist das Wasser ziemlich niedrig (Kniehöhe) und auch für kleine Kinder zum plantschen geeignet.

Hier ist auch sehr das Restaurant auf der Düne oberhalb des Strandes zu empfehlen (außen mit Holz verkleidet, der Name ist mir leider entfallen). Gerade wenn man nach einem Aufenthalt am Strand hungrig ist und zeitnah etwas essen möchte.

Hier gibt es tollen gegrillten fangfrischen Fisch (teilweise auch aus der Lagune) zu fairen Preisen. Auch ist die Bedienung sehr freundlich und entgegenkommend. Auch die Inneneinrichtung ist stimmig und stilvoll.

Wir waren auch noch bei dem Italiener direkt in der Anlage (Argento, ca. 3 Minuten zu Fuß). Wir waren hier nur ein mal. Aussicht ist traumhaft. Preise allerdings im Verhältnis zur Leistung ziemlich hoch. Wir hatten jeweils Pizzen. Diese sind jedoch nicht zu empfehlen.

Wir haben zudem 3 Ausflüge unternommen.

Peniche: Eher zum essen gehen geeignet, zum ansehen unspektakulär. Gibt aber viele gute Restaurants.

Obidos: Geeignet für ca. 2-3 Std. Kurzausflug (mit ggf. anschließenden Einkauf im Supermarkt Pingo Doce). Ist auf einem kleinen Hügel gebaut. Man schlendert diesen zur Burg hinauf. Entlang der Gäßchen verschiedene kleine Läden die u. a. den lokalen Sauerkirsch Likör verkaufen (welcher wirklich sehr gut ist).

Santarem: Städtchen ca. 1 Stunde von Prai D el Rey Richtung Inland. Auf jeden Fall lohnenswert. Nicht übermäßig touristisch. Gibt aber viel zu sehen und man kann auch etwas shoppen.

Great vacations in Praia del Rey

  • 5 of 5

The days in Praia del Rey was really a great pleasure. We went in your property and felt like home. It's perfect equiped in an excellent style and with an absolut fantastic view to the sea. We loved to sit outside on the huge terrace and enjoyed the silence and the sound of the ocean. The close pool in front of the appartement is perfect if you stay with children. With a car you are very central to visit a lot of very popular highlights and nice beaches.

We are sure to come back!!!!

Praia D'El Rey
Car: recommended

Praia D’El Rey is a 50 minute drive north of Lisbon located on the idyllic silver coast. The beautiful medieval walled town of Obidos, with its castle, quaint cobbled streets, local shops/markets and year round festivals/concerts is within a 10km drive, as is the working fishing port of Peniche which has many excellent seafood restaurants and a waterpark. Lively markets and shops can be found in spa town of Caldas Da Rainha. The Obidos Lagoon (5mins away) offers many watersports. The Berlenga Islands nature reserve, visible off the coast can be visited by boat from Peniche (May-Sept), and are also a major attraction for Scuba Diving. The area has wine caves & vineyards where you can taste the wines of the region. The award winning surfing & bodyboard beaches of Baleal and Foz Da Arello are a 15 minute drive away. Further afield are the religious shrine at Fatima, historic Coimbra, Sintra and of course Lisbon, which offers everything you would expect of a major European capital city.

Other Activities: Kite-Surfing, Scuba-Diving, Wake-Boarding, Microlites, Football, Basketball, Go-Karting, Gym/Spa, & Wine Tasting

Golf: Praia D’el Rey was selected by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) as European Golf Resort 2010. Also identified by ‘Golf World’ as the 13th Best in Europe, and Gold Award winner for Best golf development by ‘Homes Overseas’ magazine. The course is a mixture of links and mature woodland, and the views are constantly changing hole to hole, from cliff top ocean views, local countryside and lush scented pine forest. Golf can be booked direct through the PDR Pro Shop or (more reasonably) using internet-based booking services. British golf professionals are available for lessons and the practice facilities are outstanding with short and long game areas, and several putting greens. There are other excellent golf courses along the Atlantic coastline and inland from Praia Del Rey within a short drive to add variety, the Bom Successo course literally a 10 minute drive away opened mid 2008. Conditions are exceptional throughout the year. Full hire services at the clubhouse pro shop. The clubhouse also has a bar/restaurant.

Please be aware that the pro shop may ask for handicap certificates.
