About This Listing
My apartment is well laid out and well appointed. Located an easy walk to the Restaurants, Bars, Shops, Markets and the Beach in Setúbal.
Relax on my balcony and take in the activities of the interesting city of Setúbal. Cook Sardines or "Porco Preto" on the built in BBQ. Check out my herb garden and flowers. All this on the 7th ( top ) floor.
The Apartment faces south and looks out over the Arrabida National park to the right, the city of Setúbal to the left, out over the harbour and estuary to the Troia Peninsular with its sandy beaches.
Setúbal is a working city with very few tourists. The Old Town with pavement restaurants is close leading to the Avenida Luisa Tody, the very large covered market, the fishing port and the small lanes of downtown shops. Further on the horizon are the power station, paper mill & shipyards. There are regular festivities in the city square, cafes, bars, restaurants and nightclubs. The nearest beach is a 15 minute walk. There are many other beaches and rocky coves all along the Arrabida National park and across the harbour on the Troia Peninsula, my favourite destination being Portinho.
The apartment has 2 bedrooms on the north side with views across the rooftops to the hills beyond, A bathroom with bath, separate shower, basin, toilet & bidet. The dining room / sitting room has a large balcony and faces south with long views across the city, Sado Estuary ( pronounced Saadoo ), Troia Peninsular and the Arrabida hills. The kitchen has all modern conveniences and equally good views. There is an entrance hall with a coat and shoe cupboard and a large store cupboard.
Local shops are within easy walking distance including a very good "Fruiteria" which also has most other things for a good meal aswell.
A 15 minute walk down the hill takes you to the Old Town with small shops, bars and restaurants. A little further on the "Luisa Todi" are some more sophisticated restaurants including my favourites...
Champanheria... A Brazilian tapas and gourmet restaurant.
Baluartes... A good fish restaurant with many other traditional dishes.
Duartes dos Frango... a very good value primarily chicken restaurant, but good lamb & fish too.
The fishing harbour is not far from here and the area is full of nightclubs after dark.
More to come with my next edit... Rory

la vue sur la baie est magnifique ! L'équipement pour faire la cuisine
est parfait ! Silvia nous a gentiment accueilli et nous a laisser des bons produits, merci !
The apartment and surroundings are amazing and Rory made sure that the whole process worked perfectly. The aparment is very well equipped with everything we could need during our stay. Rory's friend Silvia met us when we arrived, had bought some food and gave a lot of helpful tips.

The apartment is amazing. You have everything you need and the views from the balcony are awsome. Rory wasn't in Setubal so Silvia attend us. She was incredibly nice with us giving us all the information we needed. The appartment is even better than picture shows. The location is also very good, in a very quite place and only ten minutes walking to the zone of restaurants and bars. I really recommend it!
Spacious, clean, fully equipped apartment in a beautiful area of Portugal. Balcony wonderful, location perfect for Setubal, surrounding beaches and Troia. Great pre-arrival info from Rory and more attention than deserved from the lovely Silvia! Really exceeded our expectations. Thank you Rory!
Nous avons été accueillis par Silvia, qui nous a recu avec biscuits, fromage, pain... Elle était au rendez-vous comme a l'heure prévue
Our stay was great!! We did not get to know Rory, but his friend Silvia welcomed us with a selection of regional products such as queijo (cheese) fruits , bread and sweets. She helped us plannng our trips (f.e. dolphin watching) since we dont speak portuguese. Apartment was as described, clean and had an awesome view. We would highly recommend rorys apartment and would go there for a second time for sure. Obrigado
