Silver Coast - Unspoilt beaches and cultural treasures

North of capital Lisbon along Portugal’s western shores, our Silver Coast villas lend themselves perfectly to the relaxed lifestyle this region inspires. Historic cities, medieval towns and the wild beauty of the unspoilt Atlantic coastline awaits those who stray off the tourist trail.

  • Silver Coast Beaches

    The vast white sands of the Silver Coast, Portugal, meet the cool, sapphire waters of the Atlantic to form some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. A string of typically Portuguese villages, where time has stood still, and larger family-orientated resorts are scattered along the rugged and beautiful coastline. The region plays host to several world-famous surfing beaches, attracting water-sports enthusiasts from far and wide. Many of the most popular beaches have sheltered areas for swimming, patrolled by lifeguards.

  • Silver Coast History

    Visit the Silver Coast and you will discover a rich history and culture set amid the beautiful countryside and spectacular coastline. Various fascinating monasteries, convents and castles are open to visitors, scattered throughout the towns and villages. The historic cities of Lisbon, Coimbra and Oporto are well worth a visit and are excellent to walk around, absorbing their medieval atmosphere and marvelling at the beautiful architecture. A variety of interesting museums within the cities also play host to many local artistic treasures including porcelain and crystal artefacts.

  • Silver Coast Food

    The Silver Coast, Portugal, is renowned for its mouth-watering cuisine and variety of local wine. Many of the specialities are based around the delicious seafood from the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. You can sample one of the most popular of these dishes Caldeirada, a stew which combines a large variety of fish and shellfish with potatoes, tomato and onion. This area is also part of the largest wine growing region in western Portugal, where excellent red and white wines are produced. The sparkling Bairrada wines are very popular, and provide an excellent accompaniment to many of the traditional dishes of the region.

  • Silver Coast Activities

    If you enjoy exploring the great outdoors, you will love spending time amid the beautiful scenery of the Silver Coast. Take a walk along the tranquil coastal beaches and rugged cliffs and you may be lucky enough to encounter some of the abundant and diverse animal and birdlife. If you prefer something a little more energetic, a great way to explore the coast and countryside is by bicycle. Golf is very popular in this part of Portugal, with several world-class courses to choose from, with none better than the breathtaking courses in the Holiday Resorts of CampoReal Golf Resort & Spa and Praia d'el Rey Golf & Beach Resort.

Close to the beach. Spacious and clean villa.
Pool was quite deep at its deepest. Resort is a bit of a drive from the village.

Carlow Family (the eldest child is at school)
There is beautiful scenery and the area is not over- developed. The towns we visited were quite traditional and gave us an idea of what Portugal was like in the past. We holidayed in early June so resorts were quiet and we liked that.
There were not many large supermarkets close to our villa however, there was a small shop about 1.5 miles away which catered for all our standard needs.
