Dear David,

We are looking for lodgings to rent in Rio Maior as close as
possible to Golden Eagle Golf Resort. Our daughter is a
professional golfer with the Ladies European Tour and we are
coming from the USA to see her play. The dates are June 8 - June

We would like to find a place that sleeps 6 people, with a

Can you suggest something?

Hello Jane,

Not being a major tourist destination Rio Maior is not well served
with such properties, none that I know of. As I say in my post
on Golden Eagle Golf course...

"If you plan to play the Golden Eagle course I would recommend
staying at the nearby coastal golf resort - see Praia D'el Rey
Villa Rental.
But if you prefer to stay nearer to Golden Eagle
Golf resort there are a variety of Rio Maior Hotels to choose


Portugal Holiday Destinations

or drop an email directly to their local property management
company at:-


who may be able to personally recommend something a little
closer to Rio Maior than Praia D'el Rey, perhaps beside the
Obidos lagoon or on the beach at Foz do Arelho, both only 30
minutes from Rio Maior..

If you stay near to Obidos you are only 20km from Rio Maior, and
with the motorway connecting the 2 towns you are only 15 minutes
away. And Obidos is quite simply the loveliest little mediaeval
castle town in the whole country of Portugal.

See this post on Obidos for a couple of pictures of Obidos.

May I post your message and my reply to the Silver Coast Property blog?






Thank you for your prompt response. I'll check out your
suggestions and also keep searching. Yes, you may post this
correspondence on the blog.





Hello Jane,

I asumed you were talking about six adults, so I forgot to mention,
that my own villa apartment has an excellent view and is ideally
situated in Foz do Arelho for groups of 4 adults and 2 children.

Take a look at the page entitled

Silver Coast Villa for more details.
