Villa & Area Description
Foz do Arelho is a beautiful little resort town that used to be a simple fishing village not so many years ago. Located on the Silver Coast, and just about 1 hour’s drive from Lisbon International Airport, makes this town an ideal location, as it lies within 5 miles of the A-8 motorway, which connects towns and cities along a north-south axis; but is never more than a few miles from the coastline. Foz do Arelho has only low rise buildings; many of which are 200 or more years old and connected through little quaint lanes and back streets that would take you back to a different era. Essentially, the town has managed to keep all of its old charm and is sure to impress in a delightfully unstated manner.
The villa is tastefully decorated; designed and equipped to a very high standard.
Located only 150 meters from the beach at Foz do Arelho; the villa is within walking distance of all the amenities. There are several supermarkets, banks, a good choice of restaurants and plenty of shops just minutes away in Caldas da Rainha, but there also local grocery shopping, cafes bars and restaurants within walking distance of the villa.
There are also some fine restaurants serving international cuisine in the heart of Obidos.
The front of the villa has a modern and clean design but is essentially still a very Portuguese house. It has a front drive that leads up to a car port and the main entrance. The rooms are all spacious and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is very well equipped, bright & airy seamlessly connects to the rest of the house. The lounge, that faces out onto the rear garden and pool area gets plenty of natural light through large wrap-round French windows with a dining area for 6 to the far side, for those sumptuous meals enjoyed with friends and family.
Just outside the kitchen is a spacious BBQ patio with bread oven that is absolutely ideal for taking breakfast and tea, al fresco, whilst you enjoy the superb morning and evening sunshine. The other outside area that is really inviting is the pool area. Moving along the side of the villa is an open terrace that connects to the lovely private pool to the rear of the villa which has ample room for sun loungers and seating room for at least 6 and is very secure and private.
For the younger guests, the town of Foz do Arelho has the Silver Coast’s largest and best known night club 'Greenhill', whilst further up the coast in the town of Nazare you will find a vibrant nightlife of fine restaurants, cafes and bars.
The other famous towns of Fatima, Alcobaça, Batalha and Tomar are all about an hour’s drive northeast from the villa and are most enjoyable for their architecture and colourful history. Fatima is home to one of Catholicism’s most holy shrine and Basilica that was designed and built in the early 20th century and millions of pilgrims visit there each year.
Tomar has a magnificent old Templar fortress on the hill surrounded by acres of terraced gardens, natural springs and orange groves. A part of the monument has been used as a convent for some years but most parts are open to the public.

The Silver Coast of Portugal has managed to avoid the over development and over-commercialisation of Portugal’s other major tourist resorts. Its beauty and charm has therefore gone undiscovered amongst visitors from Europe, but has always been popular with the Portuguese. The soft, sandy beaches on the Atlantic coastline are cherished by the local population and provide welcome relief from the bustle of city life. As those busy resorts have become more crowded and expensive, the distinctiveness of the Silver Coast and all that it has to offer, stands in sharp relief, by offering a real slice of Portugal, superb stable weather and great facilities / amenities at affordable prices. It is not surprising therefore; that we are now seeing large numbers of European visitors, and some from far beyond, who are discovering what the Portuguese have known all along.
