We had a fabulous family holiday at Baleal, Portugal in June. Fiona, the owner, was extremely helpful before and after the holiday. Always responded to emails promptly. The location of the property is perfect for surfers and non surfers. (Also easy drive from Lisbon.) Good local supermarket, with much needed coffee and croissants for early risers. Property was well maintained and beautifully decorated. Kitchen utensils could be updated/renewed, however we managed to cook for five hungry surfers each night. Nearby village of Ferrel (with in walking distance from property, though car required for heavy shopping) has excellent bakers, butchers, fishmongers for those who like cooking and more coffee shops! Silver coast surf school, within four minute walk, extremely helpful, drove us to surf spots each day. For non surfers bike hire, skateboard, body boarding shops abound. Peniche was an hours walk along the beach or ten minute drive away (out of peak season). Easy parking and large well stocked supermarkets. Good fish restaurants there as well. Would definitely go back again.
