Our apartment is fully furnished to a high standard and is the perfect base for exploring the silver coast. It is opposite the local open market offering freshly caught fish, meat, fruit & vegetables, etc. And a small arcade of shops including two bakers, delicatessen, mini market, ironmonger and launderette. A supermarket is 500m away. We are just 4 minutes stroll from the promenade and beach in the beautiful shell shaped bay of Sao Martinho. Sao Martinho has numerous shops, bars, cafes and restaurants with inexpensive but high quality food and friendly service. Children are made most welcome. Within easy reach by car are the larger towns of Obidos, Nazare, Alcobaca, Caldas da Reina, Batalha and Fatima offering a variety of activities and architectural delights. The coast has many secluded beaches and opportunities for watersports. For golfers, there are three championship courses within 45 minutes drive at Praia del Rey and Bom Successo.
2 bedrooms, one bathroom in the old village near to the beach and promenade

About Ian Hunter
We bought our apartment as new in 2007 and have enjoyed many lovely holidays in Sao Martinho do Porto and the surrounding area which always turns up something new to see. We would like people who love beautiful and tranquil places to enjoy our apartment and this special part of Portugal with its friendly people and high quality food and drink.

Why Ian Hunter chose São Martinho do Porto
Beautiful scenery, friendly people and relaxing atmosphere. Never too hot and sticky like some places and no mosquitos! Lovely, safe, clean beach and sea.
What makes this Apartment unique
Close to local open market, and just 4 minutes walk from the beach. Supermarket within 500 metres and plenty of bars and restaurants. It reminds us of seaside holidays when we were kids.

Lovely apartment in a good location.
Everything we needed was in the apartment.

Thanks for the nice review Ian.
Excellent family appartment.
The apartment is situated in a fantastic area of the town. The resort is beautiful and not over commercialised with great facilities.
We were very comfortable and relaxed in this clean and spacious apartment.
Hiring a car is not essential as there is an easy walk to the train station and the beach is very near.
We will definitely be staying here again!
Thank you. We are so glad you had a great holiday and were comfortable in our apartment.
O apartamento é praticamente novo, muito funcional, perto da praia (3 minutos a pé) mas longe da confusão.Está perto de tudo mas pode-se desfrutar o descanso. Mesmo em frente ao mercado municipal e perto de uma grande superfície comercial. Perfeito para uma família pequena. Gostei muito e tenho a certeza que voltarei a repetir...
Gostei do apartarmento mas na cozinha havia munta falta de coisas para se servir em termos de louças e outras croisas mais mas o apartamento munto bom
Thanks for your review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed our apartment and we will address the issues you raised about better kitchen equipment.
4 minutes walk, 1 minute by car
Lisbon airport is 85 km away or one hour by car - easy driving up the A8 motorway; tolls around €5. Flights from the U.K. operate from Liverpool, Luton, Bristol and Gatwick with Easyjet and TAP from Manchester - look out for seasonal service changes.
Nazare/O Sitio - 11km
Alcobaca - 20km
Caldas da Reina - 8km
Obidos - 15km
All amenities such as supermarket, local market, banks, bars, cafes, restaurants are available in Sao Martinho.
For the "culture vultures" there are many places of interest within easy reach. Lisbon, the capital has a great "small city" feel and is just one hour by car as are the nearby towns of Sintra and Cascais, just along the coast from Lisbon.
The walled town of Obidos with its shops and restaurants is 15km away - you can walk all the way around the wall and take in the breathtaking views.
The monasteries at Alcobaca and Batalha are a must see as they are central to Portugal's history and its long alliance with England. Of course Fatima is a famous Catholic place of pilgimage and well worth a visit as are the vast Roman ruins at Conimbriga near Pombal.
Peniche and Foz de Arelho offer great beaches if you can tear yourself away from Sao Martinho.
