Beautiful house and great service

  • 4 of 5

Me and my family had a great stay in this house! It had everything we needed and more. It was clean and well-kept. John provided us both with detailed instructions for everything in the house and a guide for the surrounding area which was very helpful and appreciated!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We are glad you and your family enjoyed your stay and all was to your liking. I cannot take the credit for the guide. My property manager, Alison, who is local, worked on it quite extensively. We are pleased that you found it useful. Hope to see you again in the future.

Relaxing Break

  • 4 of 5

The villa is clean and well equipped. The heated pool was a real bonus, and was certainly well used during our stay. It is well placed to explore the Silver Coast. For is Tomar was absolutely stunning and the whole family enjoyed the experience. Foz was lovely and for us we enjoyed it,

as not over commercialised. Alison the property manager was very efficient in resolving issues, and the owner has been very responsive to emails. Can recommend the villa

Superb accommodation and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 10 days in this super accommodation. It is a spacious property and well equipped which was ideal for a family holiday with 2 teenage boys.

The heated pool is ideal, clean, well maintained, which we used every day.

The house is in a lovely, quiet, relaxing setting with pine trees at the rear of the property and is an idea base for exploring the area. Good restaurants are not too far away especially in Foz (recommend Tavolá & Cais do Praia) with supermarkets(Leclerc), shopping & petrol in Caldas.

Gets very busy for parking on the beach front in Foz but a short drive takes you to the beaches of Peniche and Baleal where parking was easier. Lovely sandy beaches with lots of room for sunbathing and good waves for body boarding and surfing. Recommend the Special Surf 78 surf school at Peniche if you get that way.

Definitely would recommend this property for a very enjoyable holiday.

Ideal accommodation in Foz

  • 5 of 5

Had a great girls weekend away at this spacious property. We were very impressed with the size of the rooms especially the master bedroom with balcony. The house felt like home from home, the kitchen was well equipped and we found the dish washer, washing machine and washing line, very handy . There was a play station and a double swing (handy if you go with children). We enjoyed our days relaxing round the pool, and playing table tennis, then off to Foz beach bars to watch the sunset whilst enjoying a nice glass of wine. Had a great night out at the Vintage Club in Foz, and a nice day out in Obidos town. Local supermarkets are 10 mins away by car and cheap.

An enjoyable stay and we will definitely go back.

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property with everything you'll need, it's spacious, comfortable, clean and well maintained. I have stayed at Casa Amarela twice, my first visit was with a Family group and my second was with a group of friends and suited both parties well.

We had a great time using all that this property has to offer, we especially loved the heated swimming pool and the table tennis tournaments we had. The house is in a lovely, quiet, relaxing setting with pine trees at the rear of the property. There is a welcome book with lots of information to help you get the most of out your break so it's worth taking a look.

Foz has some good cafés, bars and restaurants, the locals are very welcoming and it's not expensive. The boys in the group used the sail school in Foz and went kayaking on the lagoon.

We headed to one of the beach bars in Foz for drinks while watching the sunset - stunning! We also had a fun night out at the 'Foz Vintage Club' for late night drinks and dancing.

I would recommend visiting Foz and the area before it's gets touristy and expensive.

Love Foz, Love the Silver Coast and Love Portugal !

spacious and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

This is a fantastic home from home accommodation, very spacious throughout with modern fixtures and fittings, could easily sleep more people than recommended and still be comfortable! The garden boasts a welcoming swimming pool, bbq and table tennis equipment which was fun!! The area surrounding is quiet and relaxing and if you have a car watching the sun go down along the Silver Coast is a must see and also where you will find friendly bars and restaurants!

Foz Do Arelho
Car: recommended

The property is on the edge of a quiet village. There is a cafe bar within 7 minutes walk. It is a 5 minute drive from the wonderful beaches of Foz do Arelho, where you will also find a bank, cafes, restaurants, food shops, newsagents, a butcher, a baker, etc.. 10 minutes to the north is the beautiful shell-shaped bay of Sao Martinho do Porto, with a plethora of shopping, cafes, restaurants a daily market and much more. Caldas da Rainha, a larger town with shopping centres, a cinema and much more is also a ten minute drive.

Foz do Arelho has an excellent sail school where you can learn to kite surf, windsurf, sail and kayak, all with English speaking instructors. Also available in the area is horse riding, fishing, tennis, beach volleyball and cycling. The Atlantic side of the beach has high rollers and is ideal for strong swimmers and surfers. For those looking for something altogether more gentle, the lagoon side has safe shallow waters and is a wonderful safe place for children.
