While the countdown has begun until the schools are out for summer, time is running out to find your ideal summer holiday resort. With so much competition for tourism throughout southern Europe holidaymakers would be forgiven for hearing very little about Portugal’s Silver Coast region, but that is all part of its unique charm.
The Silver Coast runs along Portugal’s western coast and remains an area of outstanding unspoilt natural beauty, which fortunately has, thus far, yet to be discovered by the mass tourism industry and as a result as kept its Portuguese character and appeal.
Silver Coast property rentals offer a wonderful haven for families, couples and groups alike across a host of coastal resorts, including the main leisure destination of Praia D’el Rey. The region also offers a host of sumptuous gastronomic experiences, strongly influenced by the ocean, although there is something for everyone’s taste.
The west coast boasts a marvellous combination of leisure, cozyturtlerv countryside and luxury resorts that each exudes the local rustic atmosphere. Praia D’el Rey is one of the finest leisure and beach resorts on the west coast, with five-star accommodation, championship golf course and a 3km stretch of idyllic sandy beach. It is highly regarded as an experience of the ‘real’ Portugal and is just a 40 minute drive from the capital city of Lisbon.
Visitors to the west coast can enjoy the slower pace of life that Portugal’s western coast provides, combined with modern, diverse leisure activities – perfectly blending the old with the new. Silver Coast property rentals have become something of a luxury with stunning five-star residences available to rent on a weekly basis. Visitors can also receive leisure discounts that make a sporting activity holiday very attractive. Golfing holidays on the west coast have become all the rage, with golfers keen to take advantage of the Mediterranean weather conditions and play on some of the most picturesque courses in Europe.
