About the property

Top golf and beach resort, one hour from Lisbon. Golf, beaches, pool.

Why come to Praia d'el Rey? It is beautiful! Peaceful! Real Portugal! Healthy! One of the best golf courses in Europe (Praia d'el Rey, plus two other great courses within 5km). Some of the best surf in the world (Google 'Supertubos').

My place is a large, new home, with a balcony from every room.

Praia D’El Rey is Europe’s Leading Golf &Leisure Resort (World Travel Awards 2009), and Portugal’s top golf resort 2011 (World Travel Awards). The region (Silver Coast) has amazing sites of Portuguese heritage, beautiful golden beaches, delicious seafood restaurants and local wine, and beautiful nature.

Praia D’El Rey resort occupies an enviable position on the Atlantic coast, with superb surf beaches, sand dunes, beautiful pine forests and a wealth of sport and leisure activities. The area is much less crowded than the Algarve – so you can enjoy your holiday with less stress.

The 600 acre resort is an easy 1 hour drive north of Lisbon Airport, on the A8 motorway. It is West of the medieval fortress town of Óbidos and close to the picturesque fishing village of Peniche. Offshore lie the Berlenga Islands designated as a national nature reserve.

The property is on the second floor (one up from ground). There is a car parking spot in front. Perfectly manicured gardens and pool surround the apartment.

Activities include golf, tennis, surfing, swimming, walking, sailing, cycling, fishing, horse riding, diving and wind-surfing.

Surfing information: Baleal is 5km from the resort, and is known as the surfing capital of Portugal. Supertubos is 7km away, and holds one of the World Surfing Tour events each year. There are surfing schools in the area, and plenty of beach and reef breaks.

Praia d'el Rey golf and beach resort's awards: Portugal's top golf resort 2011 (World Travel Awards);

Europe's Leading Golf & Leisure Resort (World Travel Awards 2009); Portugal's Leading Resort - European Winners of the 2007 Travel Awards (October 2007); European Golf Resort of the Year 2007 (December 2006); Voted Number 1 (10 Best Family Homes) - A Place in the Sun Magazine (December 2006); Top 10 Tennis Properties - A Place in the Sun Magazine (July 2006); Voted among the top 10 golf courses in Europe by Golf World Magazine (2006 January); Best Portugal Development 2005 by Bentley International Property Awards; Rated 80th in Golf World Top 100 golf courses (October 2005).

Why Rod Bryant chose Obidos

This is a large, new, modern, quiet home in an excellent location in the resort. It is about 200m from the golf club, 100m from the tennis centre, the pool for the apartment is on the other side so there is no noise. The main road through the resort is on the other side so again there is no noise. It has many balconies and a peaceful view.

Great apartment, lovely resort, gorgeous region.

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully equipped & situated, we were thrilled with Rod's apartment & the Silver Coast. When renting apartments for 6 in the past, we'd usually arrive & think, "hate to be squeezed in here in a group of 6". That was definitely not the case here; it was fantastic.

All 3 bedrooms are generous, the living/dining area huge & the kitchen spacious. Every room has a balcony except the bathrooms & the hall. The property has all you need & also has comprehensive info on supermarkets, restaurants, etc.

The wifi was quicker than mine. The tv had BBC1, 2, 4, ITV & all the news channels you'd get on a Sky package, as well as many local & international channels. We discovered that Portugal has indeed Got Talent.

We stayed late Summer; it was quieter in the resort than high season, I guess, but it meant that the pool was a private pool half the time. It's properly deep at one end (appreciated by swimmers), but plenty of shallow & also a waist deep shelf all the way around. Lots of sun-loungers.

The immediate surrounds were silent at night. It was a 2 minute drive to the clubhouse or the hotel. We only frequented the clubhouse, finding the two menus more than enough on our too-lazy-to-cook-or-drive nights. Take away menu too. People there (& throughout the region) were noticeably friendly, more so than the Algarve of which we are also fond.

The beach at the far end of the resort is endless, dramatically picturesque, backing onto low crumbling cliffs. It's lifeguarded, which meant I couldn't risk my life in the huge waves as the red flag was up. You'll find somewhere swimmable on one of Baleal's two beaches. Baleal is 15 mins away, dotey & seductively relaxed, we adored it. Surfing opportunities are everywhere too.

Google pics of Obidos & pick your favourite; it will still not come up to the loveliness of that town. We walked every lane and I walked all the ramparts (a bit hairy!) but we are left with the realisation that our photos just don't do it justice now. Be sure to have some Ginja in a chocolate cup (everywhere). We had a particularly memorable meal in Petrarum Domus, not least because we had to get a bridge to our table upstairs; so charming. We didn't have a bad meal out in about 20 attempts on this holiday. Obidos is a casual 20 minute drive away.

You will need a car unless staying solely on the resort. So much to see and do; can't fit half of it here.

We'll be back next year, so we'll tell you the other half then!

Thanks Rod!

O resort é muito limpo, tranquilo e cheio de verde. O apartamento é luminoso, espaçoso e muito limpo. A piscina é muito agradável e os jardins estão perfeitamente cuidados.

Passámos uns dias realmente revigorantes.

O contacto com o proprietário é muito fácil e as suas respostas são muito rápidas.

Já resolvemos vamos voltar nas próximas férias por um período mais alargado.

Endroit magnifique et paisible

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes ravis de notre séjour à Praia Del Rey. L'appartement est spacieux, et très confortable. Le "resort " est magnifique, très propre, belle piscine, terrain de tennis, terrain de jeux pour enfants sans oublié un magnifique golf avec des tarifs très corrects. De belles plages de sable fin sur des kilomètres. Contact facile avec le propriètaire, répond rapidement à toutes vos questions. Bon point de départ pour visiter le centre historique du Portugal.

Nous n'hésiterons pas à revenir. Un endroit à découvrir.

Very confortable apartment, with Wi-Fi

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very good, with three nice rooms and 2 WC. Lots of space and light in the living-room and in the kitchen. The house is very well equipped. It has everything we need. A balcony is perfect for meals outside. It was perfectly clean. Internet is perfect . The beach is at a walkable distance (15 min) but it is important to have a car to go to the supermarket, restaurants and to visit the wonderful places and monuments nearby. Clearly, a good value for money.

The apartment is clean, spacious and comfortable. Beach is beautiful and relatively quiet. Enjoyed sunset very much. Parking close at the beach was no problem.

Praia d'el Rey
Car: recommended

Modern holiday home at a world class golf resort. This new apartment is in the exclusive Praia d'el Rey development, the best resort in the region and one of the best in Europe. It is a few minutes to the golf clubhouse, with its view and good food, is about 400 metres to an uncrowded golden surf beach. The tennis centre is about 150 metres away. Absolutely perfect for a cheap golf and beach break in Portugal.

Obidos and Peniche are the two nearest towns. Obidos, dating from 300 BC, is a medieval walled town with narrow streets and bougainvillea covered houses leading to the castle at the top of the hill. Peniche is a working fishing port where day trips to the Berlengas islands (a national park) can be taken in summer (May to Sept). A castle, museum and excellent seafood restaurants complete the mix. Other interesting towns are Bombarral (wine), Caldas da Rainha (with a delicious family, seafood restaurant) and Foz de Arrelho. Further afield are the religious shrine at Fatima, historic Coimbra, Sintra and of course Lisbon. Lisbon is only 1 hour away and is one of the gems of Europe.

I have Wi-Fi (internet) in my apartment. It is also available in the golf clubhouse and the Marriott main cafe.

Golf: The excellent coastal 18 hole championship golf course was ranked 1st in Portugal by the Peugeot Golf Guide. It is rated 13th in Europe and 80th in the world by Golf World. This apartment is only 200 metres from the clubhouse.

The course is very beautiful. It is on the coast (links style) for half of it, and through a pine forest for the other half. There are spectacular views over the Atlantic and the Berlenga Islands beyond. The par 72 is a good test for both the high handicapped golfer as well as the more advanced player. Each hole is very different.

There is great clubhouse with excellent practice facilities including a short game practice area. The clubhouse has a beautiful view for your post-round refreshments! There are very good English speaking professionals. Buggies / carts, trolleys and clubs are all available to rent. You will need an official handicap of 28 or less for men, 36 for ladies.

There are also other very good golf courses nearby - Bom Sucesso (10 minutes), Royal Obidos ( 10 minutes), Golden Eagle (30 minutes). You can have a wonderful Portugal golf holiday here, and it is so much more authentic and peaceful than the Algarve.
