Shopping is good with a number of good supermarkets (Modelo, Intermarche, Lidl, Aldi). Plenty of coffee shops, restaurants, banks. Within easy driving distance of Leiria, Fatima, Tomar with its wonderful Monastery. The people are friendly and helpful and easy-going. Large discos and dance halls on the outskirts, Kayane being one of the better known. Live band on one side and disco on the other. Olives, fruit and local vineyards are all around.
