Beach side villa! Independent beach house with panoramic view!

Located in: Sao Martinho do Porto
Welcome to our Casa da Gralha - for splendid beach days, to play golf and fly paragliding, go hiking and cycling, explore Portuguese sightseeing places or just to relax and recharge your cells. Enjoy the sun rise over the hills in the hinterland all 365 days of the year and have fun with the little hare in the garden. Or be captivated by the sunset that feels incredibly closer to you with a glass of red wine on your private patio.

The independent house located right on Atlantic is completely refurbished with great attention to detail. The beautiful hillside in a peaceful setting, the nearby footpath to Sao Martinho do Porto and the view over the horizon will make your holiday domicile an oasis in a prime location for 1000 and 1 holiday wishes. The natural plot with an area of 3000m2 provides plenty of space for secluded privacy and the wildly romantic sandy beach of Praia da Gralha is right at your feet.

Floor plan of your holiday domicile

Welcome to the beach house Casa da Gralha - feel comfortable like it’s your own home! The entrance hall has room for bathing suits and play equipments, shoes and clothes. Through a short hallway you can enter the spacious and distinctly decorated living room with a comfortable sofa, design classics, large wooden dining table. Leave your worries behind and help yourself with the firewood available readily and enjoy the crackling in the open furnace! Or let the soul dangle at the view of the horizon through the large veranda doors running on two sides of the room. The open, well-equipped kitchen is immediately adjoining the living room. A small storage room next to it has space for your supplies.

Even in the ground floor there are two bedrooms to relax and recuperate. The blue bedroom has a veranda door to the sea and an en-suite bathroom with bathtub and toilet. In the green bedroom there is a window opening out to the garden, an extra bathroom with shower and toilet is right across.

A wide, solid wood staircase takes you to the master bedroom upstairs. A spacious bathroom with tub and toilet en-suite adjoins it. Directly accessible from the gallery and the bathroom is a cosy bedroom for children of all ages.

The cosy gallery upstairs invites you to relax, read and watch television. A small balcony offers a fascinating view of the land and sea!


Secluded and yet close to all the facilities that will make your stay pleasant and varied. The almost private local beach in Praia da Gralha is reachable on foot in 10 minutes, after which your house is named. The daily market, cafés and the social hustle and bustle of Sao Martinho do Porto is reached after a 15 minutes’ walk. Extensive hikes on never ending coastal and country lanes, bicycling tours to the neighbouring towns and villages, kilometres of sandy beaches or culture in the citadels of Portuguese history - the location of our house offers everything that your heart desires. Get captivated by the unperturbed hustle and bustle of Portugal’s Silver Coast!

Sandy beaches

Right in front of the house is the wildly romantic Gralha da Praia, which is just 10 minutes away on foot. Almost your own private beach, because there are very few swimmers visiting even in high summer. With the enclosed rocky bay, the beach is great even on windy days as well as not so mild days.

Especially for children the popular natural bay of Sao Martinho do Porto is ideal. Either you opt for a 20-minute walk or pack your bathing suit at once in your car. The lively bay in summer with its cafés, restaurants and shops offers bathing fun for the whole family - even very small kids can splash around in the gentle waves happily.

On one of the most beautiful coastal roads in the country, Rua da Pescaria, you can reach the vast Praia do Salgado in approximately 5 km, which has an enchanting view of Nazaré. The kilometre-long sandy beach, where you can always find a lonely place even in the summer months, is as popular among the Lisbon tourists as it is among tourists from all over the world, who love something special. If you like something closer to the town, you also have the Praia da Nazaré, located directly on the waterfront, available for swimming fun and a cool drink in one of the beach bars.

On the opposite side of Sao Martinho bay there is a 10 km long coastal road with breathtaking view of Foz do Arelho. For surfers and paragliders and also for families from children to elder persons one can enjoy beautiful, simple beach life. In the hot waters of the lagoon nearby you can swim carefree without high waves and relax in the surrounding bars and cafés.

Culture and colourful hustle and bustle

In Sao Martinho do Porto you can take a wonderful stroll, have a drink in Rua dos Cafés and dine first-class in one of the numerous restaurants. The daily market - within 15 minutes walking distance from the house - provides everything fresh and cheap for self-catering. A large supermarket on the outskirts is perfect for a shopping spree. On the bay along the sea there is a boardwalk that goes up to Salir do Porto or you can use the lift to the upper town, which brings you close to the original location.

The driving time to the preserved and well-kept medieval town of Obidós is only around 20 minutes and is always worth a trip. Cosy bars, fado songs and colourful hustle and bustle along the many small alleys will enchant you.

Nazaré stretches directly up to Praia do Salgado, divided into an upper and lower town at the cliff slope. The Moroccan architecture, fishing women in black dresses, shops, narrow alleys and public places, from where you can see the sunset in the evening, contribute to a real holiday feeling.

Experience pure culture in Alcobaca with a monastery, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A visit to the unique church and Crusader Castle of Tomar leads you to the former significant centre of the Templars. Coimbra, the oldest university city of Portugal, Lisbon with its seven hills or the Shrine of Fatima - all of this and much more options are there practically at your doorstep.

Sports and activities

Hiking and biking: Pristine nature, dunes, barren rocks and endlessly winding roads and paths - right outside the doorstep you can go for relaxing walks or extensive hikes and bicycle tours. You can go by yourself on an expedition to explore or experience guided walks, organised by the tourist office in Sao Martinho or in the nature park 'Serra de Aire e Candeeiros'

Paragliding: Thanks to the favourable wind currents, the colourful hang-gliders start not far from our house, right on the cliff overlooking Praia da Gralha. Reachable on foot within a few minutes, you can marvel at the stunning scenery from breezy heights. Courses for beginners and advanced can be found at (check out the website link) - or just enquire directly at the launch site.

Water sports: After a 15-minute drive you will reach 'Escola da Vela da Lagoa' (Check out the website link) - directly at the lagoon of Obidós, in the village of Foz do Arelho. You can take up courses for surfing, windsurfing, sailing and kite surfing. Or just get on the waves right there. Alternatively, Peniche is there nearby, which enjoys international fame as a surf camp. Not to mention 'Wave of Nazaré' - which was recently launched in the Guinness Book of Records, and real waves of enthusiasm struck at the beach of Nazaré.

Golf: In Obidós, reachable on the highway after 20 minutes, you will find several excellent golf courses: Praia del Rey, Royal Obidós and Bom Sucesso Design resorts are among the best in Portugal.

Diving: Haliotis diving school (check out the website link) has a variety of courses for beginners and professional divers near your holiday domicile.
