The SpaceThe Duplex on the Beach with Ocean View offers you the chance of enjoying life by the beach and ocean. The only way you will be closer to the beach and water is if you would actually sleep on the beach itself. The apartment is located on a calm "dead end" street right by the beach. You literally walk down the stairs from the apartment and onto the beach.
The apartment is located on the top two floors of a small building, in a calm and quite neighbourhood. It is impossible to be any closer to the beach and ocean. The walls of the building literally touch the sand on the beach and the only thing you will see through the windows is the ocean and the beach.
Inside of the apartment you will find the following on the bottom floor:
- a fully equipped kitchen, stove and oven, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge and freezer, toaster, microwave and coffee machine;
- a spacious and bright living and dinning room, fully furnished with tables, sofas, chairs, TV and fireplace;
- bathroom with a full sized bathtub;
- a large bedroom with a king size double bed;
- entrance hall;
- balcony overlooking the beach and ocean with a couple of sun chairs.
On the top floor you will find:
- a spacious multipurpose room whenyou reach the top of the stairs;
- 3 bedrooms fully furnished with double beds (one of the bedrooms has an extra single bed), bed side tables and closets
- bathroom with a small shower
The flat is prepared to accommodate up to 10 people (counting the couch on the living room where one person can sleep), with the necessary kitchen utensils such as plates, cutlery, glasses, pots, pans, etc.
Regarding the surrounding areas, Peniche is a peninsula, which means it is surrounded by water on 3 sides. You have beaches in the north side, beaches in the west side and more beaches on the south side. If you are coming to practice water sports, this is basically heaven on Earth. You will always find good conditions to do your favourite sport!
In case your sport is more in lines of laying down on the sand, enjoying a cold beer or two, don't worry either, you are also on the right place! Right in front of the flat you have a long sandy beach, 3 kilometers (1.9 miles) long, with white soft sand and a couple of cafés and bars that will serve you the cold beer you have been wishing for, as well as local traditional food dishes that will open your appetite the moment they are put down on your table. After all, Peniche has the biggest fishing port of the country, guaranteeing you fresh fish and fresh sea food every time you go out for a meal.
Price wise, a beer (ask for Imperial, 20cl) will cost you 1 euro, a small steak on bread (Bifana or Prego) will cost you 3-4 euros and a full meal will start around the 10 euros line. All this and much more at the bottom floor of the building where the flat is situated, in HotSpot restaurant, where the owner and chef will treat you like a friend and serve you tasteful local dishes. Plus, the restaurant has a large outside area with sun umbrellas, where you can look down into the ocean and hear the waves break while you enjoy your meal.
Once you are done eating, take off your shoes and enjoy a nice walk on the beach.
Besides having a restaurant conveniently under the flat, there are several cafés in the area, all under 5 minutes walking distance, where you will be able to buy freshly baked bread in the morning (they make it themselves right there in the cafe and it is amazing!) at 25 cents a piece.
There is also a mini market less than 5 minutes walking distance where you can purchase fresh locally grown vegetables and any other food item you might need to prepare a meal in the flat.
Finally, there are two more restaurants that serve great fish and sea food from the local fishing port, as well as tasty meat dishes for those that cannot live without animal protein. Both of them with a lovely staff and very affordable prices (great value for money).
For you that wants to keep busy during your time in Portugal, there are countless places to visit and enjoy around the surrounding areas of Peniche.
There is also the possibility to organize surf lessons or other water sports, together with a local school, if you wish.
Golf can be played at Praia D'el Rey, just 20 minutes away, in one of the best golf courses of the country, with spectacular views of the ocean right by its side.
Having a car is not mandatory but highly recommended to explore the full potential of this amazing stretch of the Atlantic Coast.
