Fabulous 3 bed apartment in Foz do Arelho

"We surfed every day" - "amazing waves"

We spent 3 weeks this summer (July & August) at David's apartment in
Foz. We found it to be a very spacious and clean apartment. It has
amazing views of the Obidos Lagoon from the balcony that you could
never tire of looking at.

The apartment is very well equipped with everything we needed for our
stay. There's even a cupboard in the hall that is fully stocked with
lilos, tennis rackets and balls, pool toys and boogie boards so
there's no need to have to buy these.

We had 2 teenagers with us (as well as a 9 year old) so the tennis
court on site is a real plus. You don't need to book these either so
if it's free you just go on in...

The pool is lovely and clean and well maintained and the children had
hours of great fun playing in it.

The other fantastic thing Foz has to offer are the amazing waves on
the beaches and we booked into the Fozcamp Surf School and Surf Camp
run by a guy called Martim which is located in the centre of the
village. We surfed every day of our holiday, having never tried it
before. The prices are very reasonable and you couldn't meet nicer
people in the surf school.

Generally we found Foz and the neighbouring towns to be very
reasonable to eat out and and drink compared to at home (Ireland).
There is lots to see and do and most places are not overrun with
tourists which is nice so you can get parking and nowhere is too busy
(even in July and August). I would definitely recommend Apartment
to couples or families.

Thanks for your review Caroline,

It's great to hear that you enjoyed your 3 weeks so much.

I'm glad you found Martim and his surf school to be so useful
that you surfed every day. He is really friendly and I'm told
that he does a really good deal compared to the other camps at
Baleal and Peniche.

We also have a list of good restaurants to suit every price
range in the apartment. There are of course lots in the Foz
village and on the beach and lots of fresh fish. But a special
treat for me is to go up into the hills to what we all locally
call "the steak restaurant at Guisado" which cooks your meat on
the open fire. Or the other one at back in the hills at Fanadia
which has excellent fillet steak on a kebab, which they call a
"trancha do novilho".

If steak is not for you then for good value, variety, and top
quality you'll find it hard to beat Solmar Canas on the road
from Foz into the town of Caldas - opposite the skate park..

Hope to see you all again soon.

warm regards,
