Portugal is a country of diverse landscapes, festivities, friendly people and a wealth of history. It is the westernmost country of Europe and has a population of 10.5 million people and is the nation with which Britain enjoys its oldest alliance dating back to the late 1300’s. A link between England and Portugal goes back to the recapture of Lisbon in 1147, but it becomes particularly strong in the late 14th century. It is formalized in May 1386 AD as the Treaty of Windsor. Binding in its terms, and never revoked, this treaty is the reason why Portugal is often described as England's oldest ally.

Silver Coast

The Silver Coast stretches from just south of Porto till the northern parameter of the Lisbon coast is know as Costa da Prata or Silver Coast. This is to do with the shimmering quality of the Atlantic waters in the sunshine. Some of the country's most impressive architecture, historical and religious sites can be found in this region. On the coastline, large and spectacular beaches mix with little quaint fishing towns and villages, of which Nazaré is one of the finest examples. Further inland, fertile country stretches along the banks of rivers like the Tagus, producing livestock and crops from grapes to fruit and rice.

Coimbra, the birthplace of six kings and the seat of the country's oldest university, fascinates with its historical associations, and nearby you can visit the largest escavated Roman site in Portugal, Conímbriga. The Silver Coast is still regarded as quite special for the average tourist or traveller because it offers a unique and enchanting view of an older more gentle country completely at ease with itself and the outside world. Visitors will feel a sense of ease and complete relaxation as the pace slackens and the mind takes in all that clean fresh air and fine weather. The great pilgrimage town of Fatima lies just 90 munites north of Lisbon and is within easy reach of a clutch of other world heritage sites like Tomar, Alcobaca and Batalha.

“Portugal Rental Cottages” is dedicated to meeting customer needs by providing a range of superb accommodation and support services such as local car rental, wine tasting tours, Sight-seeing tours and airport transfers from Lisbon or Oporto to various Silver coast destinations.

We specialise in the Silver Coast region, but are more than happy to arrange accommodation in other areas of Portugal, if required, to make your holiday experience a truly memorable one. The comfort and convenience of our customers is foremost in our minds when we make recommendations for villas, restaurants or any of the other services we offer.

If you are looking for a villa, townhouse, apartment or chalet, we are able to provide detailed information on each property, so you can finalise and book what makes you most satisfied. Most of the staff you talk to will have already spent time at the property they are describing, and are therefore able to give competent and accurate information that will help you decide what is best for you and your family.

We would be happy to collect you on arrival from Lisbon Airport and save you the trouble of standing in long queues during the busy period and having to hire expensive vehicles just because you have luggage. Most destinations from Lisbon are reached within 75 minutes. We use a very modern fleet of vehicles of varied capacity in which you will be comfortable and have no worries about luggage and our price for the transfer are really competitive.

We are also able to provide local car rental on a per day tariff, to keep your options as open and flexible as possible. Many of our visitors do not wish to be encumbered with a vehicle for the entire period of their stay, when it will get some, but not heavy use during their stay. For those who wish to take a lot of sight-seeing, then choosing smaller, cheap to run vehicles is ideal.

For those who do not wish to drive locally at all, we would recommend you use our taxi service for grocery shopping or getting to restaurants in the evenings. If you like the idea of visiting the main tourist attractions and do not want to drive; we provide excellent sight-seeing tours at great low prices, to various destinations, including Lisbon, Sintra, Cascais and Fatima with collection and drop- off at your villa. These are accompanied tours that are fully licensed and insured.
