About this listing
PERFECT FOR FAMILIES AND CHILDREN
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.
Animals are not allowed.
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.
Loosing the key implies the payment of 20€.
Check in and Check out are flexible and adjustable to your flights, unless there are other hosts checking in on the same day.
