Free parking is available on site and there are car and bicycle rental services. The O Pomar Holiday Village also has a children’s pool and a playground. Nearby golf courses include Benamor, a 2-minute drive away. Conceição Train Station is 5 minutes away by foot.
I rented a 3 bedroom apartment. Quite spacious, huge terraces (grill included), overlooking a great swimming pool. Large bedrooms. The kitchen is well equipped and the tv has all english channels and the 4 main portuguese channels. The garage is included in the price.The pub has live music on fridays, saturdays and sundays. Ping pong table is for free. Pool table is 1 euro per game. Overall, it was a very positive experience. Most guests are either Irish or English.
Cleaning is not included and it costs an extra 30 euros each time you order it. The sea front is at over 1 km away - unthinkable to walk that distance with 3 small kids and all the toys... There is a small "city train" perhaps overpriced that will take you to the waterfront. There, you still have to pay 75 cents per adult to cross the small chasm and finally you will walk 200 metres to touch the wonderful water. Great beach, by the way.
