About this listing

The space


The Island of Baleal was home to an ancient fishing community dedicated to whale hunting (hence the name – Baleal = home to whales). It has a number of beaches, is very safe for children and quite exceptional for the practice of nautical sports, such as surf, windsurf, paddle, scuba diving, fishing, etc. The Boating Beach (Praia dos Barcos) deserves a special visit. It receives the local fishermen every morning and we can purchase and take home freshly caught fish.

The Sunset House (a casa do Pôr do Sol) comprises 6 bedrooms, a large living room, a dining room, two bathrooms (one in the exterior), kitchen and laundry facilities, satellite television and internet. Facing to the west, a large patio overlooking the sea represents a warm invitation for a drink whilst watching a fabulous sunset, different every day and never the same as the previous day.

At the end of the day, with the sea only a few metres away, one can fall asleep to the sound of waves hitting the rocks.

In Peniche, the city closest to Baleal (3 km.), there are various types of commerce and services: supermarkets, hypermarkets, vegetable shops, shops dedicated to surf, golf, fashion, pharmaceutical products, as well as doctors, hospitals, banks and police.
In Ferrel, 2 kms to the north, we can also find commercial facilities, such as bread and pastry shops, minimarkets, banking services (including electronic facilities) pharmacies, etc.
Approximately 10 kms to the north is situated the Praia D El Rey golf course, undoubtedly one of the most spectacular golf course in Europe. It is situated in a unique locality, set among dunes and pine forests and allows for spectacular views over the Atlantic.
Some 20 kms to the west, we have the Island of Berlenga (Ilha da Berlenga), a natural reserve of unique and indescribable beauty.

Please don't smoke inside the house. If you really, really need to smoke do it on the terrace.
Please don't leave the heating working when you're not at home. It's an absurd energy and money waste.
Please don't play with the fishing rods. They are very old and have for me a huge sentimental value as a memory of my family.
It is strictly prohibited to use the fireplace to cook. There is a very nice barbecue outside.

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful old house very much! The surrounding beaches offer great surf and the sunny terrace makes for a superb sundowner. I can fully recommend this place.

Fab experience at a unique home in lovely Peniche, one of the original properties on the island; its age is part of its charm. Well located just a couple minutes walk from the beach, the house is easy to access by car, and the private parking space behind the house would be key during peak season. Sunsets are gorgeous right from the front porch, and it's great to fall asleep and wake up to the sounds of the ocean hitting the rocks. Ines was very helpful and flexible, good communication before, during and after the visit. More space than we needed for 5, could easily accommodate more, though note that the second toilet and shower are outside (enclosed; kind of cool and useful actually!). Overall a very good experience.

The location is beautiful and Baleal really is a special place to spend your holidays. The large terrace has an oceanview to two sides. The beach is about 2 minutes away and perfect for surfing. The kitchen is fully equipped and the barbeque is great as well. Only, as said in the description this is a housed owned by the host's family and therefore contains a lot of the families belongings. Also, family members of Inês live in the surrounding houses. Had a great experience all in all.

We spent amazing three weeks in this house. Interiors are very nice and cosy, you can feel like at your own home. Kitchen is fully equipped, anything you might need is there. We were surprised how spacious is the top floor. Outside there is also a nice storage where you can keep your boards or other sport gear. Ines is extremely helpful, always ready to come by if you need some help.

Inês and her husband gave us a warm welcome and showed us around the house and it had everything we needed and she provided recommendations of places to go. The house was very well located had great access into Baleal with the two beaches close by. Surf schools and restaurants were in very close proximity.

We had a wonderful family vacation at the house in Baleal! It is the perfect location if you are looking for stunning views (you can see the ocean from practically every window), an idyllic island setting, and walking distance to amazing beaches. The house itself is charming, with the many rooms decorated with beach-themed local items, giving a sense of the local culture and history of the house itself. The kitchen was well equipped with all the things you need to cook for yourself, and other amenities such as laundry and beach toys made the stay very comfortable and convenient. The outdoor patio was great, with sunshine all day it was a great setting for dining, and provided lots of space for the kids to play safely. This beautiful rustic house is an amazing spot for a vacation in Peniche!

I am Inês a 36 years old girl from Lisbon. I'm going to Baleal since I was born, my parents and my grandparents did the same. Baleal is my "oxygen pump" and what I most like to do is going to the beach and sunbathing. I am also a fan of crafts, painting, fabrics, ceramics and wood. I work in conservation and restoration of painted wood sculpture and had the privilege to participate in the recovery of the altarpiece of the Sto Estevão chapel, in Baleal. A visit not to be missed!
I am happy to give you a warm welcome in the most beautiful beach in Portugal.
