What to do
You will find a guestbook in the house with suggestions for trips, markets, restaurants etc. Please feel free to add more things of interest.
Around the corner is Restaurant Tipico da Serra. Good Portuguese food for low prices. Huge portions.
Try the Caldeirada de Peixe, a lot of fish for your money. Generally if you go inland some, say, 20 km you will find many small restaurants at about one third of the price as compared to near the coast. Please see our guest book for many more.
Every year we leave a list with our top 5 restaurants. Also there is a list of restaurants that you should not go to!
For a fantastic look at our beach pls go to:
Salgado beach is nearest, but it is a hilly track.
Beaches at Sao Martinho, Nazare and Lagoa de Obidos and several more around the corner. Hang gliding on the hill opposite our house. See book.
Worth visiting are Nazare (cable car to Alto Nazare), Caldas da Rainha (daily market, and special market on Monday), Batalha (Cathedral), Fatima, Serra de Candeeiros (National Park), and Alcobaca (Cathedral) Obidos also is a must.Of course a trip to Lisbon by car or bus is worthwile (electrico 28!).Several golfcourses.
Supermarkets are in Caldas, Alfeizerao, Tornada. See book.
Restaurant da Serra also is a small supermarket but can not beat the big ones. Since 2009 there is a Supermarche in Sao Martinho just off the school.
This supermarket is also the cheapest for fuel for the car.
