Lourinhã is most famous for its dinosaur discoveries & 12 kilometres of coastline with many sandy beaches. Some of the first discoveries of dinosaur remains in Europe were made in Lourinhã in 1863 and since then the region has been the focus of this field with many of the exhibits now on display in the museum. The museum itself is world famous and houses some of the most important Palaeontological artefacts from the Jurassic period.
Our properties in Lourinha are based in two small private developments next to each other: Silver Coast Residence and Silver Coast Heights. Both offer breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and are located in Areia Branca – literally White Sands.
Built by award winning British developers, each home is finished to the most exacting standards using the finest materials and the best local craftsmen. Features include open plan living - dining rooms, modern kitchens and bathrooms, plus ample space externally to enjoy the outdoors. We have attached Floor plans of each property so you can find the right holiday home (or homes if you are a large group) for you. All our homes are fully equipped and beautifully furnished to make the holiday experience complete and relaxing.
Silver Coast Residence: is a development of 15 three and 4 bedroom homes around a large condominium pool (heated in summer) that echo the elegance of typical Portuguese architecture.
Silver Coast Heights is a development of 13 three bedroom contemporary homes. We have four properties available for renting – two with pool and two that allow use of the condominium pool at Silver Coast Residence.
Lourinha offers 18 km of sandy beaches. The closet beach to our development is Areal Beach, just a short walk over the dunes or 1 min drive from both developments. It is a popular family beach which even at the height of summer remains uncrowded . The temperatures are pleasant since proximity to the sea ensures there is always a gentle cooling breeze.
There is a wonderful café /restaurant at this beach – perfect to have breakfast, lunch or dinner. The large sandy area means that youngsters can play at a safe distance whilst more active members of the family can swim /sunbathe or learn surfing from the school based at this beach. From this beach, one can walk to the next beach – Praia de Areia Branca which has more restaurants, surfschools, etc
THE TOWN CENTRE
Just 5 minutes drive from the properties is Lourinha town, a quaint traditional town with cobbled streets , churches and café’s. Relax and enjoy a Portuguese coffee and “pastel de nata” or buy fresh fruit, fish and vegetables in the local farmers market. All the amenities like supermarkets, banks, tourist centre, health centre, post office etc can be found here as well as the Dinosaur museum - worth visiting specially with young children.

Lourinhã also has historical links with the defence of Portugal due to its strategic coastal position. One of the major battles of the French Invasion of 1808 the “Battle of Vimeiro” took place within the municipality and the museum at Vimeiro is worth visiting.
