VILLA RENTALS PORTUGAL

LOCAL INFORMATION

THE FOLLOWING IS INFORMATION AVAILABLE ON THE VILLA AND SURROUNDING AREA OF ALCOBACA

Our Villa is situated in a small village approximately 5 kilometres from the main (small) city of Alcobaca. Everyone in the village is very friendly and helpful. Here you can experience the 'real' Portugal. A community where everyone helps everyone else where a good deed is appreciated and paid back in food, wine and preserves. Even though the village is small it has a multi-national feel to it as there are Dutch, Belgique, English German and French.

Bread can be delivered to your door every morning fresh from the Bakery.If you fancy a lie in just hang a carrier bag on the back door with the payment inside and when you get up in the morning bread will be waiting for you. The fresh fish van calls a couple of times a week and also a van selling frozen food and ice cream stops for business across the road. So you can stock up the freezer without leaving the villa.

If you want a break from driving take the bus. There is a bus stop across the road from the Villa which takes you direct to Alcobaca main Bus Station and from there you can catch a bus direct to many of the main towns.

There are numerous places of interest to visit, fabulous beaches and fantastic golf courses - if you forget your golf clubs dont worry you can hire them.
