The Costa de Prata/Silver Coast Region
Silver Coast area has some of the country's most impressive architecture, historical and religious sites in Portugal. On the coastline, nearly empty beaches mix with quaint fishing towns and villages, of which Nazaré is one of the finest examples; inland, fertile country stretches along the banks of rivers like the Tagus, producing livestock and crops from grapes to fruit and rice.
Obidos, the medieval walled town with beautiful cobbled streets, ancient churches and a good selection of restaurants and craft shops is 15 mins by car. Peniche, the fishing port, with excellent seafood restaurants and boat trips to the nearby Berlanga Islands, a nature reserve, is also 15 mins away by car. Caldas Da Rainha 25 mins drive away, provides good shopping and a great open air market.
Lisbon center is about 1 hour away by car or take the bus from Peniche . this city on Seven Hills, the birthplace of fado, a maze of dark and narrow streets that date back for centuries, and now, more than ever, Europe's westernmost capital city has quickly become one of the most cosmopolitan. Prized for its seamless mixture of tradition and modernity, Lisbon is like no other place on earth. From Alfama, to the Parque das Nações, to the historical district and the new and thriving business district, Lisbon is one of Europe's most beautiful cities.
Plus shopping !! beside the high street shops in the city , Colombo Shopping center beside Benfica's stadium is the largest shopping center in Europe!, with cinemas, restaurants , high street brand shops etc, you could spend a day trip doing this centre alone besides even going into the city proper, only about around a 45 minute drive from the house.

Our findings on the climate over the last 5 years
Note while we have found Jan-Feb-Mar ok for golfing & shopping etc, as you are on the Atlantic , too cold for the beach etc and very changeable weather much the same as in Ireland or England in Feb., if you need guaranteed sun during Dec-Mar you would have to go down towards the Algarve but great time though to see a Champions league match in Benfica or Sporting Lisbon
Summers are perfect really from April-Sept really nice cool breeze and seems to be always warm and sunny , well over 30 degrees on average. ( children certainly need sun block every day even if it starts off cloudy as the rays seems brighter and stronger than in Ireland or england)
Surprisingly we have found Oct/Nov for Halloween also warm over 20 degrees but guess we are comparing it to Ireland/England weather.
Also in case its important to you , we have not seen any mosquitoes in this resort or area
Fatima is located 45 minutes drive to the east of Praia Del Rey ,this small town is one of the most visited Marian shrines in the world today. The apparitions for which Fatima is known around the world began on May 13, 1917 and today more than two million pilgrims arrive each year.
Benfica stadium & Sporting Lisbon stadium are within a 45 minute drive away, well worth checking out if a champions league match is on or a UEFA cup as they qualify most years , group stages usually Nov-Mar.
The town's of Vila Franca de Xira another 45 minutes by car hosts the Festa do Colete Encarnado, or Red Waistcoat Festival every July .For several days there are bullfights and bull runs. This involves letting the bulls loose and trying to dodge them as they charge through the streets It is worth noting that the Portuguese style of fighting the bull is different to its Spanish counterpart - the bull is wrestled but not killed. However, if you still find this style of bullfighting distasteful, we suggest you avoid the event.
Tomar Festival of the Trays, "Festa dos Tabuleiros", also known as Festival of the Holy Spirit, "Festa do Divino Espírito Santo", is held in Tomar every four years.The streets are decorated with paper roses and there is music as well. It is a unique event with a procession where young women carry on her head a tray with 30 loaves.Well worth a visit , as the town of Tomar was founded as head-quarters of the Knights Templar ( Da Vinci Code) in Portugal in the 12th century and contains some of the most significant Templar monuments in Europe with its spectacular Templar church of the Convent of Christ.
Mira de Aire is a small town in Portugal not far from Fátima. This is Portugal's largest caves system and the underground tour leads down through a series of colorfully lit caverns . When you exit the caves you've got a water park with slides and swimming pools, which is included in the prices of the ticket, great place to cool down.
Driving suggestions ; while there are many shorter ways to go to Fatima & Mira de Aire simpler to take the A15 towards Santarem and then the A1 towards Porto.
More Golfing , if you would like to try other championship golf courses in the region , Golden Eagle near Rio Mairor is well worth the visit, only about 25-30 minutes drive west and there are plenty of Golf Courses in the Lisbon/Cascais/Estoril region
