We would like to welcome you to our Villa Ninho dos Corvos. The Portuguese name 'Ninho dos Corvos' translates to 'Crow's Nest'. This, after the viewpoint that you find on top of our villa with a wide 360 degree view over the Praia D'el Rey Resort, the Praia d'el Rey golf course and the Atlantic Ocean.
Praia D'el Rey
Praia D'el Rey is on Portugal's Silver Coast. Just an hour north of Lisbon lies the Silver Coast, Portugal's Costa de Prata, far away from the stresses and strains of modern life. The Silver Coast is one of Portugal's treasures, a place that offers everything you expect from a holiday - except the hustle and bustle.

Saltwater swimming pool
The villa has a saltwater swimming pool. In ordinary swimming pools chlorine is used to disinfect the pool. In the case of a saltwater pool, disinfection is done by means of electrolysis of ordinary salt. The big advantage is that the chlorine content is considerably lower than in traditional pools. The water in a saltwater pool feels very soft and is very safe for children because it does not cause red eyes. It also does not dry out the skin.

Golf is an important part of the economy in Portugal. Many of the golf courses in Portugal have been specially developed for golf tourism. The golf courses are recognised around the world for their quality and layout. Portugal is currently a major golfing destination, mainly due to the abundant availability of good golf courses and the mild climate. The diversity of golf courses is enormous. Along the coast there are many courses with beautiful views of the ocean. But also the park-like courses, located more inland, are beautiful. There are four 18-hole golf courses within a 10-minute drive.
Praia D'el Rey
Praia D'El Rey is arguably one of the most stunning golf courses in Europe. Set among extensive pine forests and undulating dunes, with spectacular views over the Atlantic and the Berlengas Islands beyond.
The varied landscape and natural terrain was maintained undisturbed as possible to create an unique and world class 18-hole seaside links golf course alongside the silver coast. The golf course is managed by Praia D él Rey.
Praia d'el Rey has a microclimate. Whereas the south of Portugal can become very hot in summer, it remains relatively cool in PDR. Even compared to Lisbon, a temperature difference of 5-6 degrees can be observed. The graph on the right is the current measurement of the outside temperature (max. and min.). The moderate temperatures make it comfortable during the summer period. This also explains why air-conditioning is not necessary and hardly used in the PDR area.
