Customer Reviews

 

This is a delightful 4 bedroom apartment over the first and second floors of the Gilma Facho complex in Sao Martinho with far reaching views across the Atlantic. 

 

Perfectly situated in one of Sao Martinho’s preferred developments, this spacious apartment offers an unparalleled choice of facilities to its visitors. As well as three communal pools to choose from, outdoor amenities include a mini golf course, a small football field, and tennis courts. If you prefer indoor pursuits you can enjoy the rigours of the squash court and gym or enjoy a drink at the bar. Communal areas are equipped with a pool table and a ping pong table as well as complimentary wireless internet access.

 

The property is spacious, practical, and designed to a high standard. All of the bedrooms are generously sized and arranged as three double rooms and one triple room (sleeping 8 in total). Having 3 bathrooms is a big advantage for a 3 bedroom property and the main bathroom features a jacuzzi bath with shower over. The second bathroom is a shower room and the third is a WC. 

 

The large, open plan lounge has enough space to house a dining area and living area and the private balcony is a great place to relax. The kitchen comes with all modern conveniences and is a great place to prepare some of the excellent local produce that is available in beautiful Sao Martinho do Porto.

Sao Martinho do Porto is an easy 1 hour drive from the airport on the A8. Taxis and transfers are available (around € 75-100), as well as a number of car hire options. We will provide detailed directions for your car journey.

For Lisbon you can take the 10:23am Eurostar from London to Paris and then the 15:50 TGV service to Irún on the Spanish border. Then connect with the 22:00 overnight Sud Express to Lisbon which arrives at 11:03am the following day. The cheapest return fare is about £209 and can be booked through Spanish Rail (020 7725 7063).

About the area

A taxi costs around €3 from the centre of Sao Martinho and there is also a tourist train that stops at the complex many times in the day time in the summer. 

There is a bar on-site in the summer. 

 

This stretch of Atlantic coastline has long been revered by the surfing community for its outstanding waves. Peniche is home to “supertubos” and the largest wave ever surfed reached 90 meters high near the charming fishing village of Nazaré. Nestled in between these two towns lies beautiful Sao 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. The cobbled streets that surround the bay are home to a splendid selection of bars, cafes and restaurants that specialise in the freshest seafood and the warmest of welcomes.


 

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 Silver Coast. It’s proximity to the A8 motorway makes it easy to explore by car and there is lots to see and do. International visitors flock to the exceptional Praia D'El Rey golf course which has been rated as one of continental Europe’s best courses and it’s only 40km away. Among the many tourist destinations in the area, we recommend the stunning Obidos Lagoon which is only 10km and is home to a lovely nature reserve, excellent water sports and some outstanding scenery.

 

 

Portugal’s Silver Coast is the ideal summer holiday destination. Despite its exceptional beauty and fantastic climate, it has managed to avoid the overdevelopment of Portugal’s main tourist resorts. It is home to breathtaking stretches of soft, sandy beaches along it’s Atlantic coastline which are cherished by discerning Portuguese visitors. Visitors who explore inland are richly rewarded by a vast array of historical and cultural treasures, including a UNESCO world heritage site at Sintra, delightful medieval towns and villages and one of Europe’s top golf courses at Praia D’El Rey.

 


So if you are looking for is some beautiful summer sun, in magnificent natural surroundings, then the fabulous Silver Coast is the perfect destination.
