Olho Marinho Cottage


Lovely semi-detached countryside cottage in Portugal’s Silver Coast, located in the village of Olho Marinho, in a quiet green area, close to the exclusive world-class Praia d’El Rey Golf Resort.

You will also be delighted with the impressive natural environment here. The region is a tranquil, rural wine-growing area, with pine and eucalyptus woods and sand dunes rolling down the Atlantic coast making it ideal for walking, horse riding and mountain biking. The lovely golden sandy beaches are great for swimming and water sports – Baleal beach attracts surfers from all over Europe, and is only a short drive from the house. The area has many interesting market towns and unique fishing villages worth exploring, not least the picturesque medieval walled town of Óbidos, which is a five minute drive away, as well as Caldas da Rainha – noted for its ceramics and thermal spa.


It is 50 miles from Lisbon International Airport, an easy 45 minute drive northwest on the A8 motorway. While a car is essential here, there is a reliable bus service Lisbon/Óbidos /Lisbon if you prefer to take the scenery en route.

The countryside cottage is very welcoming, clean, ample and modern. We had lots of barbecues in the garden and our children loved playing outside while we chilled out enjoying the tranquillity of the setting with perfect Portuguese wine. The house is an excellent base to discover the many spectacular sandy beaches around the area, it’s just a few miles from the stunning Praia d’ElRey golf course, the charming medieval town of Óbidos and top quality wine estates. The whole area of this part of Portugal is of outstanding beauty and we plan to come back.
