The villa is just over 1 hour’s drive (slightly quicker on the motorway, or longer taking a more scenic route) from Lisbon International airport which is well served from all European countries. From the UK, you can fly to Lisbon with the following airlines:
• TAP Air Portugal
• British Airways
• BMI Baby
and from the following airports:
• London Heathrow
• London Gatwick
• London Luton
There are several care hire companies at the airport, and of course many others off-site as well. Easycar (which I tend to use as book car at the same time as flights), Europcar, Hertz, Avis, and Budget are a few of those that have representation at the airport. The counters are located near the arrivals public area so they won't be that difficult to find. You can use companies like Eurocarrental.net to do a comparison on multiple car rental companies.

About Kristian Melgaard
My wife and I own the villa - we love spending time at the house especially with our family, which includes our young son and my parents. Betwen us all we spend at least 4 weeks a year there and is the perfect place to go to escape from the city and enjoy the space, peace and fantastic weather.
Kristian Melgaard purchased this villa in 2010
Why Kristian Melgaard chose Bom Sucesso
We wanted a house with a lot of space, light, its own pool and close to beautiful beaches and landscapes. We also wanted somewhere we could make our own, making imporvements to the gardens and pool, and customising the interior with our own features. The location was ideal as can be used as a base to explore the Obidos lagoon and the Silver Coast, the nearby towns and villages, and not to mention the golf courses! The area has a real family feel to it, is predominantly locals and regular visitors and is not at all overdeveloped. The outside space and private pool means there is always the option of just staying at home and relaxing if we want a break from the beach or exploring the area.
