We stayed at Suttons retreat in October 2010, having never been to Portugal before we were not sure what to expect. Well, we were pleasantly surprised, the accomodation isnt close to the beach, its on the beach which was amazing. stepping out of the front door theres plenty of parking, and about 5 steps to the sandy banks and the beach bar. Great for surfers, Peniche is rated in the top ten surf spots in the world, so you will not be dissapointed, Baleal and Subertubos a stones throw away, about 5 mins in the car. there are surf schools nearby offering surfing and Kite surfing lessons.
The accomodation was clean and comfortable, and perfect for what we wanted. Theres a great supermarket over the road, a newsagents, Surf Shop (where you can also hire surf or body boards at a daily rate) round the corner and the Tourist Information is next door, so you will always be able to find something to do! venturing into Peniche itself, there is a small shopping precinct, and plenty of bars and resturants with great views of the marina. Theres boat trips avaliable from Peniche to Berlenga, there are several companies with information at the Marina.
Suttons Retreat was about one hours drive north of Lisbon, it is very easy to find and is on the main road into Peniche.
We have booked to go again in June 2011
Thank you for a great holiday and we are looking forward to our next one.
