Property was a really great deal, can be foggy
The apartment was excellent. The weather factor was the only reason for not 5 stars, but it’s an exposed beach town. The apartment was Very spacious and the lani with bbq great. Local market and restaurants more than adequate. It’s a tremendous value, even more so when the weather cooperates. The local beach is very exposed and not for beginners. However the lagoon is shielded and has great beaches. The location allowed us to get to various ‘tourist spots’ quickly, Nazare, Peniche and Batalha to name a few. For families with children Peniche has a ton of surf schools on a huge beach. For us it was a great base to explore , return then relax on the big lani.
Thanks for your kind comments, although we have no control over the weather I'm afraid. The sea mist can roll in, especially in the mornings. You are welcome to stay any time.
We stayed at the house for 12 days in late July 2014, and thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Foz.
The house is bigger than it looks in the photos, and had everything you need for a self-catering holiday. It was clean and well-presented. All the bedrooms are very spacious and the living area a great space, the kitchen is huge! We had three teenagers with us (two adults) it was a perfect size. We had an en-suite shower room and the teenagers shared the main bathroom.
The owners had thoughtfully provided some beachware. We did not miss not having a pool at all as the beach is a short distance away, we drove most days and it was a quick 2 minutes, about 15 minutes walking.
Each morning, we sat on the patio, basking in the warmth of the sun, enjoying breakfast whilst looking over the Lagoon.
Each evening, we sat on the balcony, sipping wine, looking out over the village, before heading out to one of the excellent local restaurants.
We particularly liked the food at the Tavola, and the both the food and view at the fish restaurant on the beach.
There is easy access to the beach and countryside, and the local towns and sights were amazing.
We recommend the Buddha Eden which is about 30 km south, with its landscaped gardens, lakes and incredible sculptures and monuments.
The beaches at Baleal, Sao Martinho and Foz itself are amazing. The only negative was the weather, which was unusually cloudy for the time of year.
This is Portugal at its best, far from the commercial and busy Algarve. Would certainly recommend the property and hope to return in the future.
Thanks for your kind words. You are welcome to stay any time.
A great "get away from it all" holiday.
The house was very clean, spacious and well equipped for a relaxing family holiday. It was quiet and peaceful with a couple of good restaurants within walking distance serving fantastic fish dishes.
The sandy beach round the lagoon went on for miles and although there was a car park we walked as it was not that far.
Access to the motorway was easy so we did a bit of travelling and exploring around the area. There are quite a few places round about to go and see.
Generally a good relaxing holiday, voted a success by the family.
Thanks for your comments. Hope to see you again in the future.
Lovely house for our holiday.
The house was lovely, clean and spacious. It was nice to be able to use the outside space and have BBQ's. The area is quiet and there are some nice resturants very close by.
Maison vaste et très propre. Intendance4/6 lits draps sales.
Instructions de ne pas faire de bruit mais voisinage très bruyant....
Je suis désolé que tu n'aies pas trouvé la maison à ton goût. Tout notre linge est nettoyé après chaque visite et je doute que tout soit «sale». Cependant, je demanderai à notre représentant de vérifier tout cela et de remplacer les draps éventuellement plus «fatiguées».
Peut-être que vous avez été malchanceux avec le bruit. C'est un quartier portugais normal avec des familles et des chiens. La plupart des gens sont des résidents plutôt que des touristes. Août est la saison des vacances au Portugal bien sûr. Personne ne s'est plaint du bruit avant.
Ein Haus wo man sich sehr schnell einlebt und genießt
Wir bedanken uns für die tollen und erholsamen Ferien in Foz do arelho. Das Haus war sehr gut ausgestattet (super Grill auf der Terrasse) und in der Nähe von Zentrum, in dem wir gerne die kleine Geschäfte besucht haben. Nach unseren Ausflügen in der Gegend haben wir die Ruhe auf der Terrasse genossen. Wir wären gerne länger in Ihrem schönen Haus geblieben! Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Nathalie und Ihre Eltern
Une Maison où il fait bon vivre!
Maison de vacances très confortable, appréciée notamment pour sa grande Terrasse. Bien située à proximité du centre ville et à 15 minutes à pied de la plage. Inoubliables grillades de poissons sur le Barbecue!

Foz Do Arelho is 2 minutes walk. The village is surrounded by Eucalyptus and Pine forests, and nestles on the large lagoon. There are acres of golden, sandy beaches. Caldas is the main town nearby (10 minute drive) and has all the usual amenities including banks, supermarkets and a market. Both are accessible from J18 of the N8 motorway. The historic walled city of Obidos is 8kms, and the wonderful monastery at Alcobaca is 30kms. The pretty port of Peniche is 15 km away. The amazing caves around Mira de Aire are 40 kms. Lisbon is a 1 hr drive to the South, Porto around 2.5hrs to the North.
Foz is a village but has mini-market, bar/cafes, restaurants, health centre, tourist office, pharmacy, a bank and a fishing tackle shop.
