For two centuries, the preferred holiday destination of the Portuguese Royal Family, this village resort has retained its quality and exclusivity whilst gaining in popularity.
São Martinho do Porto, on the Silver Coast (Costa de Prata) of Portugal, sits 56 miles north of Lisbon, the capital city and 120 miles south of Oporto, the second city. Lisbon International airport is less than an hour’s drive on the A8 motorway and is, in turn, less than two hours ’flight from the UK. Interestingly, Madrid is closer to the Silver Coast than to the nearest Spanish resort.
This will become effectively closer still with the completion of the TGV (high speed train) route from Madrid to Lisbon and a scheduled stop at Leiria (close to São Martinho) just 2½ hours from Madrid.
From London, Lisbon is served direct by TAP Portugal, Monarch, BMI Baby, BA, EasyJet, Air Berlin, XL Airways and Avro. There are others from Birmingham and Manchester including ThomsonFly. Prices are generally very competitive as a result.
The local population is slightly more than 2,600. São Martinho do Porto has always been a popular weekend getaway for people from Lisbon and Oporto
(and increasingly Madrid): with the excellent motorway connection, the Lisbon elite have been busily acquiring second homes in this beautiful seaside village
Only 50 metres from the development, the beach-front is lined with shops and other amenities including supermarkets, bars, restaurants, ATM machines, a bank, pharmacy, hotels, children’s playground, cycling track … the list goes on. The local police station and post office are just across the road from the development, as well
as the local market which trades every day except Mondays.
There are two churches and a chapel in the village; medical and dental clinics are close at hand; two petrol filling stations are located on the road which leads to the A8
motorway, and the neighbouring village – only 5 minutes away – has a lovely horse-riding school. Three established golf courses are within a 20-minute drive – Praia Del Rey, Bom Sucesso and Campo Real – and a further five courses are currently in the design and approval stages. The first is in São Martinho itself and one of the others just 10 minutes away.
The mediaeval village of Obidos and the sanctuary of Fatima – the holiest Roman Catholic site in Portugal – attracts millions of visitors every year. Other nearby
attractions include the fishing village of Nazaré and the historical towns of Alcobaça and Batalha, whilst the nearest large town, Caldas da Rainha, which boasts
thermal springs is just 7 kilometres distant.
With more than 300 days of sun each year, the Silver Coast has an extremely pleasant and temperate climate: its maximum summer temperatures are rarely more
than 30°C and daytime winter temperatures rarely fall below 15°C. Perfect! The micro-climate in São Martinho is particularly temperate because of its naturally formed shell-shaped bay which protects its inshore waters from the Atlantic
Park Residence - The Development
Comprising a total of 70 apartments varying in size from a Studio of 52 m² to a large 3-bedroom apartment of 140m², this development has been carefully designed to a very high specification.
Due to very restrictive planning rules (a good thing) there are unlikely to be any further beach-front schemes, which means that prices will increase over time.
There are a distinct lack of properties available as close to the beach as our Park Residence development! You can literally walk to the beach in approx two to three minutes.
