Apartment in Foz do Arelho, Obidos, Silver Coast - 2 minutes walk to the popular surfing beach Foz do Arelho
Hello my name is Kate and I look after the apartment which my parents own in Portugal. We as a family bought our sea view apartment in a quiet area of Portugal, Foz do Arelho, in the summer of 2006 whilst on holiday there. We have travelled all over Europe each year on family holidays to many different countries yet we always seem to return to Portugal for it's friendly hospitality, fantastic local food, lovely beaches and restaurants and great vino! Please get in touch to see if we have availability for you to stay in this lovely area of Portugal. We look forward to hearing from you
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2006

Resting after walking the Camino Portuguese
The view of the Atlantic Ocean and the lagoon is exactly as pictured. The first days the views were excellent; day 2 was foggy which gave another perspective. We chose this rental based on location and views. The apartment was adequate and as described. The kitchen was adequately equipped although basic supplies were lacking. For example, there was a washing machine that we used but needed to buy washer soap. We were not able to get the oven working. There was a coffee pot but no coffee to get us started. Other rentals that we have stayed at in the past (England, Scotland, France, US) have had small amounts of supplies to get the travelers started. There are cafes and restaurants close by to access within easy walking distance. Easy check out and good communication prior to arrival.
Excellent position overlooking the beach
We very much enjoyed our stay in the apartment. Perfectly situated with great views from the balcony, it had everything we needed and was close to lovely restaurants and bars. Would definitely stay again.
Really pleased Jackie you enjoyed your stay, come back any time, thank you 😊
Perfect in every aspect
The apartment was perfect, it’s view and position, in relation to the beach was perfect. Just the right amount of walking distance to the beach and the bars. Foz itself was beautiful. The restaurants where excellent and the sunsets where breathtaking.
The only downside was from the apartment below, they had two dogs, which were left out in the heat all day. Always barking at any passers by. As dog lovers this was distressing to witness.
However, this would not stop us from returning, Foz is without doubt the most magical place we’ve stayed in
Great location close to the beach
The apartment is in a small block on the hillside at the end of Foz. The beach is just a few minutes away down the hill. There is parking immediately outside the apartments. The apartment has a spectacular view across the bay from the balcony which is accessible from both the lounge and bedroom.
The apartment was clean and tidy, although the towels and bath mats could do with replacing. There is a great shower, which does leak a little but it was easy to mop up afterwards. The bed is comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. The apartment is homely if a little cluttered.
We found this to be a good base to visit local attractions and spent a day on the excellent beach in Foz, although we were driven inland on several days to find the sun, due to the fog and low cloud which sometimes persisted all day!
Alison, who looks after the apartment was very helpful and easy to communicate with.

Kommunikation was very good, the accomodation is nice, it is all there, what you need , even an umbrella for the beach and a wall against the wind😊orry for my english.We enyoid the stay and want to come back.
Excellent apartment. We spent there few days in July-August 2016. The apartment is very comfortable, with full equipment. Bed room for children includes very funny bed with 3 floors- it is big fun for children! The apartment has big balcony with amazing view on the bay with lagoones! We love this view!!! The apartment is located in very quite area, close to the beach 5 min, and close to the point view, which was excellent to observe stars after sunset😊 . I hope we will come back here someday... Thank you, Kate😊! Anna, Piotr and Jula from Poland
