I went to visit Areia Branca with and my girlfriend for 10 days in may 2016.
We've loved the area around the house because we're beach and surf lovers and we really needed to find a place like the Portuguese west coast to surf properly!
The house is about 7 minutes by car from Areia Branca Beach, and about 15 minutes from Peniche - Super Tubos Beach. We ate very good fish and seafood in Peniche, Lourinha and Porto Dinheiro. In spite being May the weather was already great and we've had some great sunny days at the beach!
About the house we also loved it - super comfortable, very well equipped, fast internet wifi, HDMI cable available, and Catarina and Ulisses also left lots of movies (and Classics) and books.
Great terraces and barbecue! Super clean.
Catarina and Ulisses showed us around and were always available for any question. We'll come back for sure!
For those who travel with babies or small children this house is excellent! It is fully equipped and we did not have to carry almost anything there!
Catarina and Ulisses made everything available for our 1 year old daughter! The baby cot, high meal chair, baby park, baby bath, bottle sterilizer, cutlery and toys , etc! The house is super safe for babies and children: Stairs with protective nets and safety gates.
In addition they provide sun hat to the beach and windbreaker!
Housed in everything and very clean! Highly recommended accommodation for travelers with babies and children.
The location is really good: 10 minutes from the nearest beach - Areia Branca and 15 minutes from one the best places for surfing in the world, "Supertubos - Peniche". There's little market near, (2 minutes walking) and nice coffee shops as well. The house is cozy, really warm and perfect for a good time of rest in family. Really enjoyed the barbecue in the yard and my little daughter loved to play outside in the garden. The hosts, Catarina and Ulisses are an amazing couple, who really know how to receive and appreciate people, always helpful and with a good advice or suggestion about surrounding. We recommend this place to everyone who want as a nice and cheap place to stay and specially who loves beach and surfing: there are loads of options near (Peniche, Nazaré, Santa Cruz) with all kinds of waves for all level of experience. We hope to come back soon. Cheers
Myself and my girlfriend, stayed at Catarina and Ulisses place for 1 week this August.
Everything was perfect and they were very kind and helpfull.
Everything corresping as the pictures provide it from the house, personally i am a big fan of barbecue and their barbecue place is perfect.
The initial idea was relax , run away from the caos of the city ( Zurich) and we reached that fully.
For us as a sports couple we enjoyed jogging at the beach, we tried some surf classes and for the ones that like tennis there is also a very cool tennis courts in the city of Lourinha, which is 5 min by car.
Enjoy the the sunset at the beach bar drinking one sangria.
We will definitly come back.
Thank you very much Catarina and Ulisses, i hope we can see you soon.
I visited the house with my husband and the house is simply excellent. With internet and TV, fully equipped kitchen with everything we needed. The terrace with BBQ allowed us to make excellent local grilled fish! Catarina and Ulisses are very friendly and super helpful! They provided a very complete guide with all the information necessary to know the area.
The surrounding area is spectacular! Fabulous restaurants and great food, especially fish and seafood.
Beaches to lose sight! To visit: Praia da Areia Branca, Natural pools of Porto Dinheiro, Óbidos Lagoon and Obidos Village, Lourinhã (Capital of the Dinosaurs), Baleal and Peniche.
