- 6 Sep 2018
We are a family of four who live in Yorkshire, England and lead very busy lives. We have two dogs who are not happy when we leave them to visit the house in Portugal! We love the house, resort and the Silver Coast and are pleased that other holidaymakers seem to also, as we have many repeat bookings.
Owner purchased this House in 2006
Why Owner chose Praia D'el Rey
We were interested in buying a property on the Silver Coast as an investment and did a lot of research before making a commitment. We did not for one moment realise how much we would fall in love with the country, the people and 'our place in the sun'. Praia del Rey is on a lynx golf course which the two male members of the family use as much as they can! However, the majority of people who rent our property are not golfers and have used it as a holiday home as the fantastic beaches and three swimming pools in Vila dos Principes offer all you need for a fabulous holiday - not to mention all the other characteristics of this unspoilt area of Portugal. The surrounding area boasts the most fantastic, sandy beaches, great choice of restaurants and Lisbon is only one hours drive.
What makes this House unique
The house itself is in Vila dos Principes, a gated community within Praia del Rey and is situated in a particularly quiet area. You immediately relax on arrival and there are facilities to do as much - or as little - as you like! The swimming pool is a minute's walk away so if you prefer to sunbath in private you can and meander down for a quick dip, but you are always able to get a bed at the pool if you prefer - even in the height of summer. Because we try to spend as much time there as we can we have a DVD in the lounge and bedroom 1 and have a good selection of films, books, games, etc. We also have a PS2 with a good selection of games and the kitchen is kitted out with every item possible! A friend commented when she stayed there recently "We all said we could live there!"

Local Services & Businesses
A wonderful stay in a great location. About 20 min drive to Baleal beach which is a great surfing beach. The accommodation has a master bedroom upstairs with a big ensuite and a gorgeous balcony. The second bedroom is downstairs. Very clean and all equipment provided. The closest of the 3 pools is a 1 minute walk and is great. This area is quite cloudy in the mornings but breaks out in the afternoon, especially at the coast! Wonderful holiday, thanks.
A wonderful home from home in a beautiful gated community which enjoys 3 swimming pools. Very well equipped villa in a lovely private, quiet area with views of the golf course. Furnished to a high standard. The owners have thought of just about everything including a good stock of books, DVDs and pool and beach equipment. The villa is ideally located for a number of excellent golf courses (particularly West Cliffs!). The area is blessed with loads of fantastic sandy beaches and great surf if you're a surfer. There is a good selection of restaurants of varied cuisine and high quality within driving distance. We, including our 2 kids (6 & 4) loved our extremely relaxing holiday and highly recommend the property.
A relaxing holiday
We spent a very relaxing and enjoyable week at this property. Everything you could possibly need for your holiday was provided. The property was very well maintained on a peaceful site. We used the pool to cool down which was just around the corner from the property- often being there on our own which was so relaxing. The surrounding area is really worth exploring with lots of pretty places to visit. The owners quickly and efficiently dealt with our reservation and were very helpful with our questions. We would certainly recommend this property to family and friends.
Relaxing stay in beautiful property
Very comfortable , superbly equipped villa in a quiet spot , a short walk from lovely big pool. Spacious rooms and lovely sheltered patio plus private sun terrace on first floor. Ideal for a relaxing break in the sun . Golf available within walking distance plus bar and restaurant and lovely unspoilt beaches .
The owners of the house were excellent to deal with, booking with them was very straightforward.
All the information given before we left and at the house when we arrived was very helpful.
The house was perfect for us as a couple, however would be ideal for families too. The owners really look after the property and it is maintained to a high standard. It was very well equipped with everything you might need.
The area was quiet with lovely maintained gardens surrounding Vila dos Principes.
We could not fault our holiday stay and would recommend the property.
Beautiful Praia del Rey
We are a family of five, who has been to this house three times. We like the area, which is quiet and safe, with no traffic to worry about. It's three pool-areas, which is nice, we can then vary between them. It's not far from the beach; we walk to the closest beach within ten minutes. It's beautiful; the view over the Atlantic ocean is spectacular. We often take our car and go to other beaches nearby, which is more children-friendly. There are also small villages near-by, which we go to by car.
The house is very well equipped, everything you would think of is there, like dvd-player and a barbeque.
I will highly recommend this to (quiet) families and couples.
