Style Notes

Simple and modern. The light, simple and uncluttered interiors are beach-inspired with sea blue and yellow tones. Decorated by the prestigious Portuguese home fashion store Interdesign, apartments feature sand and sea tones, sophisticated decoration, warm wallpaper, mosaic floors, and contemporary art. We love the cheerful look, the spacious bathrooms and the garden and communal pool.

Our vacation rentals started as a way for me to move from hotels and my mom to move from the construction business to something different, something that was lacking in our region. And so we decided to respond to the demand with beautifully decorated yet comfortable beach apartments, with exclusive services that no other vacation rental in the area could provide. We love to welcome our guests, exchange stories, show them around or recommend places we truly love to go. It has been a great experience so far and we have come to know a lot of interesting people.

Baleal, Peniche

Beaches, islands and waterfronts

A few miles northeast of Peniche, connected to the mainland village of Casais do Baleal by a causeway, is this pretty island-village. Great surfing can be found off the broad sweep of sandy beach, dotted with surf schools, beach bars and restaurants. There is still a strong fishing vibe to these parts, but that won’t interfere with enjoying beach life. Kids will simply love splashing in the water, learning to ride a wave, playing on the local swings and building sandcastles in the soft sand.
