Vista Mar Apartment
São Martinho do Porto - São Martinho do Porto Reference: PRCAP23
São Martinho do Porto is a little Silver Coast gem that sits along a horse-shoe bay just a few kilometres north of the other beautiful resort town of Foz do Arelho and just 10 km south of the ancient fishing village of Nazaré. Nestled in between these two towns’ lies beautiful São Martinho do Porto. Protected from the Atlantic by a naturally formed, shell shaped bay, this delightful resort town offers white sand and calm blue waters to a small but ever growing number of sun seekers. We can’t think of any reason why you would want to leave Sao Martinho, but it is an excellent base from which to explore the rest of the Silver Coast. What sets São Martinho do Porto apart from most other towns is its’ relative tranquil waters, that makes it an instant favourite with families who have small children. The other wonderful thing about the place is how really close all the amenities are in relation to the apartment. Everything is literally accessible on foot and yet, despite this, the town is still so much quieter and more peaceful, even during the peak summer period, when you would normally expect a resort of this high quality to be noisy and a bit boisterous. The cobbled streets that surround the bay are home to a splendid selection of bars, cafes and restaurants that specialize in the freshest seafood and the warmest of welcomes. The UN World heritage town of Obidos is home to some beautifully preserved medieval buildings within the walled bastion that has a history going back to the Roman occupation of the area confirmed by archaeological excavations that reveal the existence of a Roman city called Civitas near the hilltop on which the Obidos village and castle were established. This Roman settlement is most certainly the mysterious Eburobrittium. The Obidos Lagoon and Bird Sanctuary are of national importance (a stunning location with elevated bird observatory and local bird list – accessible by travelling south along the A8 motorway) There are 78 resident species; 46 visiting species and 40 Migrants species so it is a most unusual treat for most. One other really popular use for the Obidos Lagoon, far removed from the sanctuary of course, are the many high-octane water sports it offers. You could spend the whole day water skiing, snorkelling, canoeing, paragliding or simply fishing quietly in some of the more quite sheltered spots along the lagoon. No fishing licence is required so you simply choose your spot at random and enjoy the beautiful and stress-free environment around you. There are a number of little restaurants nestled among the trees along the shoreline where you can get refreshments and also have lunch and dinner at superb low prices. For Surfing enthusiasts, this stretch of Atlantic coastline has long been revered by the surfing community for the outstanding quality of its waves. Peniche is home to “supertubos” and the largest wave ever recorded, rose to 30 meters high near the charming fishing village of Nazaré in 2011. If Golf is your thing, then you have a fantastic selection of 18-hole championship courses to choose from. Praia D'el Rey golf course, which was voted European Golf resort of the year 2007, is a 30 minute drive away and the Atlantic Golf course located in Peniche is about a 35 minute drive due south east from the apartment. In addition, we now have the superb new golfing complex of Bom Sucesso just 6 km away from Praia D’el Rei which offers unparalleled access to a whole range of other sporting activities and some fine restaurants and dining clubs. Vista Mar apartment is in close proximity to the A8 motorway which makes it easy and convenient to explore the whole area by car by striking north via Alcobaça and Batalha en-route to other well-known attractions such as Fatima and Tomar. If you were to travel south on the A8, then within a few minutes, you would arrive at Obidos, the old agricultural town Bombarral in the wine growing region north of Lourinha. The apartment is in the centre of town just over the railway track into the more tranquil zone. It is just a short walk to the beach and literally takes 3 minutes to get there. The beach area, which is alive with activity, has some good quality shops, cafes and bars along the promenade that is so convenient for visitors. Most Portuguese speak some English or French so communication is easy. Do experience some of the finest Portuguese cuisine and wines in town and most particularly the fresh sea food, including lobster, squid, prawns, sea bass and many other varieties. One of the great joys of visiting Portugal is that you can dine in most good places for under GBP £10/- per head for a 3 course meal. Most cafes will do light lunches that are the mainstay for the locals. The quick meals are usually for GBP £5/- or less depending on the wine you choose.

Villa Planalto
Foz do Arelho - Caldas da Rainha Reference: PRCV46

The nearest town of São Bartolomeu de Galegos has a few shops where you can do grocery shopping and sample some nice local restaurants and cafes bars. 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.
