Golf and beach fans will be delighted by the location of this immaculate, four bedroom villa! Located on a smart private complex within walking distance of the silver sands of Praia D’El Rey Beach and the Praia D’El Rey Golf and Beach Resort’s impressive 18-hole golf course. The golf course, designed by the renowned American golf architect, Cabell B Robinson, is set among extensive pine forests and undulating dunes with spectacular Atlantic Sea views which stretch to the Berlengas Islands on a fine day. The resort is 106km north of Lisbon and boasts an area of 240 acres between the fishing town of Peniche, in Oeste Subregion to the south and Obidos Lagoon in the north.

The nearby medieval UNESCO heritage town of Obidos has a fascinating history. It became home to Portugal’s queens after Afonso II gifted it to his wife Urraca of Leon in 1200’s. Many of the fantastic buildings and monuments were founded or funded by a queen. The town is set on a narrow ridge with cobbled alleys brimming with artisan shops, museums and churches and decorated with colourful bourganvillea. It is pedestrian only so you can meander and appreciate the beauty of this special town.

Villa Fante has been built to the highest standard with modern design. It enjoys wonderful living spaces and excellent bedroom suites, ideal for families or groups of friends. The villa also boasts a delightful swimming pool, garden and alfresco dining. For extra fees guests can enjoy the resort facilities which include a shared swimming pool, a spa, gym, tennis court, bike rental and a club house.

The ground floor is home to a bright and airy living space, an excellent kitchen, two bedroom suites and a cloakroom. The living space enjoys dazzling white walls, an enormous corner sofa and chairs, a dining area and two sets of doors opening to the terrace. The minimalist styling makes the space seem bright and spacious with clean lines. There is a wonderful flow between spaces and a large opening takes you through to the kitchen with its glossy white cabinets, excellent appliances and a smaller breakfast table. Another set of doors opens to the terrace. Two of the bedroom suites are also located on the ground floor. They both boast beautifully dressed, comfy double beds, direct access to the terrace and immaculate, contemporary ensuite bathrooms with walk-in showers. How lovely to be able to wake in the morning and pop outside for an early morning swim and a coffee!

The two remaining bedroom suites are on the first floor, both similar in design to the ground floor bedrooms and both with beautiful ensuite bathrooms. One of the bedrooms enjoys access to a large balcony.

Villa Fante enjoys an added surprise with a basement. Here there are several sofas, chairs and another shower room. It is the perfect space for children to play or relax at the end of a busy day sightseeing.

The triangular shaped garden and terrace are delightful. Guests enjoy the 9m x 4m swimming pool surrounded by loungers and shaded alfresco dining.

Portugal’s Silver Coast stretches between Lisbon and Porto and is becoming increasing popular for its pristine white beaches and fresh climate. Along with the sensational beaches of Baleal, Nazare, Santa Cruz , Foz de Arelho, Nazare and Praia D’El Rey, it enjoys some wonderful, historic towns including Caldas da Rainha, Peniche and Obidos. The brave and skilled head to the massive, hammering waves of Nazare to kitesurf the mammoth waves. The region also boasts some spectacular golf courses including the 18-hole course at Praia D’El Rey with its deep bunkers, manicured sloping greens and sandy dunes. The Silver Coast is also known for it incredible gastronomic feasts and excellent wines. Typical dishes are Arroz da Tamboril which is a monkfish stew with rice, Polvo a Lagareiro which is roast octopus, Caldeirada de Enguias which is fried eel stew and ‘Bacalhau’, the famous codfish dish. Villa Fante is located on a smart new development on the Praia D’El Rey Golf and Beach Resort, just 500 m from the beach and golf course. The villa is 9.6 km from Peniche and 11 km from Obidos.

Obidos is a magnificent UNESCO heritage medieval town with incredibly beautiful buildings and entertainment all year round. Obidos Castle is now a beautiful hotel though you can access the battlements and walk the perimeter walls which offer sensational views of the town, the castle and the countryside of vineyards and orchards. Notable exquisite buildings include Igreja de Santa Maria, Praca de Santa Maria, Santuario do Senhor Jesus da Pedra, the Municipal Museum and Porta da Vila, the southern gate. The Obidos Lagoon is a great spot for windsurfing and kitesurfing. There are also opportunites for tennis, golf and horse riding close by. Obidos hosts many festivals and fairs during the year including the Mercado Medieval de Obidos, an epic event that begins in the middle of July and continues into August and the Spring Festival Internacional de Chocolate de Obidos. Obidos is also famous for its cherry-flavoured Ginjinha liqueur.

The university city of Coimbra is also listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Its ancient buildings cling to the side of the hill that rises above the curves of the Mondego River. The famous university’s ornate buildings are its crowning glory.

Peniche is popular for its fabulous town beach and nearby surf strands. Consolacao and Baleal Bays provide good shelter for family beach days while the super waves off Medao Grande Beach are much sought after by surfers and bodyboarders from all over the world. The beach was elected one of ‘Portugal’s Seven Wonders’ in a national tournament. Together with Lagido Beach, it is the setting for the major world surf championship, Rip Curl Pro Portugal. Peniche is an access point for the stunning Ilhas Berlengas Nature Reserve. The reserve’s translucent waters are perfect for divers. Peniche is spectacular, set on a limestone cliff headland surrounded by sea. It is one of the largest traditional fishing ports in Portugal. The seaside fort, the Nossa Senhora dos Remedios Sanctuary and the Sao Pedro and Misericordia Churches are must-sees and Peniche’s handmade bobbin lace is gorgeous. You will see many nimble fingers at work. While visiting Peniche, you must enjoy its delicious bouillabaisse or the charcoal-grilled sardines, always accompanied by delicious local wines, followed by the almond cakes ‘Amigo de Peniche’ or the biscuits called ‘Esses’.

Other wonderful excursions from the villa are to Fatima, the UNESCO heritage monasteries of Alcobaca and Batalha, Cabo Carvoeiro, Berlenga Grande Island and the beautiful Medieval city of Tomar. There are excellent shopping opportunities with antique markets every 4th Sunday in the month at Sao Martinho do Porto, the 1st Sunday at Obidos and the 1st Saturday of the month at Peniche.

ABOUT THE SILVER COAST

The Silver Coast in Portugal, or Costa de Prata, is a stunning stretch of coastal towns on the western side of Portugal, neighbouring the Atlantic Ocean. The region remains largely unknown and therefore untouched by tourism, meaning those who do visit can bask in the extraordinary “silver” sand.

Another of the many reasons to love the Silver Coast in Portugal is its proximity to Portugal’s major cities. With Lisbon to the south and Porto to the north, the Silver Coast is well situated in between both of Portugal’s largest urban centres. At the same time, it is inexpensive, authentic, and relatively undiscovered.

The Silver Coast is home to some of the best beaches you’ll ever see in Portugal. Since it’s away from the main crowd of the country, the beaches here are wilder and more pristine. Also, being popular for fishing is a great place to try local cuisine and experience the culture.

The cuisine from the Silver Coast in Portugal is some of the finest that Europe has to offer and forms an integral part of the region’s culture. The area has a rich heritage, and tourists love the narrow, picturesque streets of the towns and villages that dot the countryside. The regional agriculture also adds an authentic touch, with numerous small farms, vineyards, windmills as well as fruit trees. Many local farmers grow soft fruits such as grapes, melons, pumpkins, and maize.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Children love the Silver Coast and all of its entertainment. Praia D’El Rey enjoys a fabulous beach within easy walking distance of the villa. Nazare Beach is a beautiful, thrill-seeking challenge but probably best for brave teenagers rather than young children.  Praia Tochu is a stunning beach with lovely sand dunes and exciting waves. The small Praia de Carriero do Mosteiro has fabulous, aqua water and plenty of fish to watch or catch. Foz do Arelho Beach is a stunning lagoon with crystal clear water, surrounded by cliffs and vibrant beach bars and restaurants. The lagoon at Obidos is fantastic for children wanting to learn to sail, windsurf, kitesurf or stand-up paddleboard.

Thrill seeking children will love Parque dos Monges Alcobaca. There is a speedy zipline, kayaking, horse riding, animal enclosures with monkeys, lamas, turtles and exotic birds, obstacle courses, gladiator areas and the high wire. It is such a great excursion!
 
Norpark at Nazare is a family friendly water park with thrilling slides for children over 6 and gentle slides for the young ones. There is a huge Olympic sized pool, children’s water playground, a hydro massage pool, giant jacuzzi and a restaurant.

Dino Parque Lourinha is an outdoor museum in a vast plot with life size models of the incredible creatures. There are four areas with Paleozoic, Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous ages. It is such fun as well as being educational.

If children are in Obidos in the Spring time, they will adore the Chocolate Festival! The July and August Mercado Medieval de Obidos includes re-enactments and jousts with convincing choreography and trained stuntmen which will be very appealing to children.
