Unique and outstanding detached 3 bedroom house with heated pool and sea views
My husband, Gordon and I, first came to the silver coast of Portugal in 2002, when we fell in love with the area and particularly with Serra da Pescaria. So the following year we purchased a plot of land and designed this house which was built a few years later. Ever since we have been coming back several times a year, often with family and friends, and we never tire of the wonderful scenery and amenities and sights this area has to offer.
Elaine purchased this Villa in 2003
Why Elaine chose Serra da Pescaria
Our house is a beautiful individually designed property in an area of exceptional natural beauty. It's location offers fantastic sea and countryside views from all over the house and from the garden. Very spacious and comfortably furnished house with the luxury of a private heated pool and a well maintained garden.
What makes this Villa unique
Fantastic views throughout the living accommodation and the bedrooms. A one-off designed house which offers airy and spacious accommodation including larger than average bedrooms which very conveniently lead straight out to the pool and garden area.

Stunning views from a lovely villa
What a great stay we had at Serra da Pescaria! This villa should not be missed! Located so close to a Obidos, Fatima and Nazaré.
The villa has sweeping views that are inspiring. Communication was excellent, check in was painless and the furnishings and kitchen amenities were top notch. Do yourself a favor and book this home you won’t be sorry.
Thanks very much for taking time to post a review. We are so pleased you were all delighted with so many aspects of your stay, including the local area (as we love it too) and our villa and view. We can't really take credit for the view, but it featured heavily when we decided where to make our Portuguese home from home.
Cant wait to stay here again
I stayed here with my partner and 4 friends in June 2011, i must say after several years of package holidays i was a little skeptical about a villa holiday? This being my first time to Portugal and my first Villa holiday it was stunning, the Villa itself felt very comfortable i'd like to say it was like home from home but my house is nowhere near as luxurious as this, it was clean and very modern and the pool was heated which is a massive bonus for us,
the beaches are very close and theres plenty to do in the local area, some great little restaurants too, we did stay in most evenings though with plenty of great wine and some fantastic food again that we could buy locally, I felt so relaxed on this holiday and have spoke to Elaine (the owner) to book the villa again in the summer of 2012 for another week this time though i will be taking full advantage of some of the fantastic golf courses the area has to offer, if i were to give this Villa a star rating it would without doubt be 5 STAR*****.
endroit et vue fabuleuse
très agréable séjour , villa plus que bien équipé , et la vue et fantastique un vrai régal pour les yeux , sans compter la piscine chauffé , parfaite
Thanks for your review. It makes us very happy that you were so happy with your holiday at Villa Ceria !
Comme précisé dans l'annonce, la villa est vraiment exceptionnelle. Elle offre des prestations de qualité, la vue est superbe, que l'on soit dans le salon, dans les chambres, la vue sur la mer est magnifique. La maison est très bien équipée, spacieuse et très bien pensée. Il ne manque rien. La piscine est très agréable, l'eau est chauffée juste à la bonne température. Et nager dans la piscine et admirer la vue tout autour était un plaisir. La villa est très bien située, au calme, assez proche de Nazaré qui est une ville très agréable. Pas loin de la villa, nous allions acheter notre pain, la dame était fort sympathique.
J'ai beaucoup apprécié les échanges que j'ai eu avec Elaine. J'ai eu des réponses à toutes mes questions, jamais un mail n'est resté sans réponse. Nous avons également beaucoup apprécié le moment avec Alison, lors de notre arrivée.
Vraiment notre séjour a été un pur bonheur.

Thanks very much for taking time to review Villa Ceria. We are so glad you found so many things about the villa and your whole rental experience with us so pleasing.
Une vraie maison de famille
Au calme, spacieuse, vue sur mer. Très bien équipée. Une maison de famille plus personnelle que la foule de logements de vacances surexploités (à la deco universelle du géant suédois) qui inonde le marché!
Voiture nécessaire car éloignée des commerces.
Thanks very much for your kind review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Villa Ceria so much, including that you appreciated the individuality of the house and furnishings. It is our home from home and we hope our guests get to share that sense of comfort and homeliness whilst staying at the villa and it appears that was the case, which is great !
hemos estado 9 dias y ha sido perfecto. la casa limpia, con todo lo necesario (batidora, menaje de cocina, sandwichera, lavadora, plancha, secador,...) no hace falta llevarse nada porque todo lo tienes alli. incluso tiene una vajilla preciosa para la zona de la BBQ. las camas comodisimas, los baños grandes y espaciosos, la piscina climatizada,... a 5 minutos en coche de Nazaré, con un LIDL y un Continente abierto incluso los domingos a unos 10 minutos. 100% recomendable.
Thank you very much for taking time to post a review. We are very pleased you had such a good holiday and that you were so happy with the villa and the surrounding area.
A very unique, modern and spacious house with spectacular countryside and sea views in an area of outstanding beauty which has so much to offer on many levels. Situated in Serra da Pescaria, above the Salgado beach, with local footpaths and trails which can be accessed from the house. Nazare and Sao Martinho do Porto, are two traditional and popular seaside towns, 10 min away by car and there are many further unspoilt beaches just a little further away including Foz do Arelho. For those seeking culture there are plenty of places of interest, including Obidos, a completely enclosed medieval walled town and three world heritage sites (at Alcobaca, Batalha and Tomar) within easy driving distance. Local activities include walking, cycling, fishing, bird-watching and golf. If you already know this area you probably love it as much as we do. If you are new to the area, there is much to discover and enjoy for all ages and for people with varying interests.
Golf: Portugal is renowned for its quality golf courses and this area is no exception. These four courses are all high quality and offer different tests to players of all levels.
Praia Del Rei (30mins)is without doubt the premiere track, voted one of the best in Europe, and offers a memorable mix of true seaside links and pine tree lined fairways. Always presented in lovely condition it will test your handicap and offer a real test of your ability to concentrate to the end as 17 & 18 are tough finishing holes. A post round beer on the terrace, with views of the fairways and the ocean, is a well earned reward.
Royal Obidos,(30mins) our newest course, is next door to Praia del Rei but a totally different test of golf. Cleverly shaped fairways, elevation changes and water hazards lead to large fast greens. Its location and layout means you will face every shot you can imagine to score well. Highly reccomended.
Bom Successo,(30mins)is a parkland course with an open aspect and good views over Obidos lagoon. enjoyable with scope to score well, but beware as 17 & 18 are dangerous and could ruin a good score.
Campo Real,(45mins) is a 'resort course' and, although not long, is very demanding as you need to be straight, more important than length. Wayward shots will be severely punished. Good greens, good views and some great holes.
