The best of both worlds. This lovely self contained guest house is less than 15 minutes from the most beautiful beaches of the Silver Coast (Foz do Arelho, Sao Martinho, Salir do Porto) and 20 mins from the surf challenges of Nazare and Peniche / Baleal. Yet is a tranquil rural retreat set among the trees. Quiet, peaceful and secluded.
“Very cozy and quiet place to enjoy nature and rest. The house has everything you need, there is plenty of outside space to be at ease with the family and it is very close to several places of interest. Crissy and David are 5 star hosts and always willing to help with whatever is needed.”
Although Torre Branca Apartment is situated in the small village of Torre, Salir de Matos, only 50 minutes from Lisbon, it is quite isolated. It is a completely self contained, comfortable space with it's own entrance. Every window and both terraces have beautiful country views overlooking orchards and forest. It is quiet and serene and yet within walking distance to a lively cafe which serves excellent meals. It is 15 mins to the beach and 5 mins to the lovely town of Caldas da Rainha.
“Wonderful apartment with terraces. The view is beautiful. Extra luxury is the indoor swimming pool. The outdoor pool was still too cold. ( End of February). The welcome was very warm and everything you need is available. Even extra coffee / tea / milk / bottle of wine! Flower and fruit on the table. Definitely recommended if you like comfort and tranquility.”
Set in a quit area in woodlands ,6km drive to the beach, with restaurants, pubs & supermarket, a coffee shop in walking distance, lovely walks in the forest,a perfect place to unwind, enjoy waking up to the sound of the birds singing
“The location is ideal for exploring the beaches and tourist spots in the area. The accommodation is modern, perfectly decorated and equipped: all the necessary to cook and eat on the beautiful terrace available (kitchenware, garden furniture, table, chairs ...). A unique place in the countryside (but 10 minutes max from the city) to spend a great time and rest. Maria also provides her washing machine to do laundry if necessary (no need to empty her dressing room in the suitcase). Our host was so friendly, welcoming and discreet throughout the stay. She is very available if needed since she lives in the terraced house. It responds almost instantaneously to SMS. After 5 nights, I highly recommend Maria's accomodation.”
