TRAVEL TO THE SILVER COAST

If you need any help with travelling to the Silver Coast please do not hesitate to contact us.

When travelling to the Silver Coast by budget Airlines, Lisbon is the most popular Airport with easy access to Car Rental and then just over 1hr drive via either the A8 or A1 to the Villa.

Porto Airport is slightly further away with an approximate 2hr drive to the Villa but the choice is yours maybe you want to visit the North of Portugal for a couple of days and travel on to the Silver Coast for your main holiday taking in all the beautiful coastline and many pine forests and villages of the 'real' Portugal along the way.

Another way to enjoy Portugal is to take the Ferry from either Plymouth to Santander or Portsmouth to Santander or Portsmouth to Bilbao and drive through Spain into Portugal. Its an amazingly easy route, mostly motorway and approximately 9hr drive. This way you can take in parts of Spain you wouldnt normally see and even stay overnight to break up the journey at one of the many Hostals or B & B's en route. Check out Brittany Ferries for routes and prices.
