Large detached villa with a private swimming pool near the centre of the popular beach town of Foz do Arelho.

The current owners are in the process of carrying out significant renovations which can be continued by the new owners. The work so far includes a lovely fitted kitchen, new bathrooms, extensive insulation and heating systems.

In an ideal location for holiday rentals this property offers potential for a large family home, boutique hotel or several independent units. It is within walking distance of a range of good amenities including restaurants, cafes, shops and a bank.
Just 45 minutes from Lisbon and the airport.
The small village of Foz do Arelho, 8km west of Caldas da Rainha, sits 1km back from a beautiful, sheltered lagoon beach, which is overlooked by a couple of cafes. The road continues a further 500m or so to another tremendous beach where river meets ocean, and here there’s a promenade of bars and restaurants. It’s not really overdeveloped – this is more a holiday-home place than a resort – and outside July and August you’ll have the wide, white sands to yourself. On the lagoon itself, the Lagoa de Obidos, fishermen stand in the shallow waters next to their boats, attending to their nets.
