STUNNING AIR-CONDITIONED VILLA WITH PRIVATE SWIMMING POOL & FREE INTERNET WI-FI

Vau Villa Rental Photos and Description

Luxury villa with private heated pool and within easy reach of beach.

Villa Adriana is an attractive, privately owned villa with a large 55 sq metre heated swimming pool located just minutes from Historic Obidos on Portugal's unspoilt Silver Coast; about a 45 minute drive north of Lisbon, 20 minutes from vibrant Peniche and just 15 minutes from the internationally renowned Championship Golf Course at Praia D’El Rey. The nearest golden sandy beach is a mere 6 miles away at Foz do Arelho and you can get sea views only 300 yards from the house.

The villa is set in 6000 sqm of land with oak and pine trees and on the slope of a hill that tapers away into a small ravine. Own private swimming pool set in landscaped gardens, and surrounded by fruit orchards trees and rambling vineyards. The peace and tranquillity of the setting make this location the perfect family getaway with plenty of room and all the privacy you will need for a truly relaxing and memorable holiday. Near all major attractions including Fatima, Alcobaca, Obidos and with all amenities.

Swimming Pool Heating

If your property is equipped with electrical pool heating system, then there will be an extra pool heating charge of GB £25,00 per day. Kindly check at the time of booking and we will confirm. Please be fully aware that pool heated by solar panels can never heat as efficiently as those with electrical heating. This is because temperatures for Solar heated pools are governed by and affected by the surface air temperatures around the pool or surface winds. It is often the case that during cooler/windier spells, the temperature of the pool will rarely be 3 to 4 degrees warmer than surface temperatures. Obviously, during the summer months when surface temperatures as in the high 20s, then the solar heated pools will feel several degrees warmer than surface temperatures; they will never, however, heat to 10 or more degrees warmer that surface temperatures, as may the case with Electrically heated pools.

I have been living in Portugal for 5 years now more or less since I took semi-retirement to try and start up a new business in the Silver Coast area that promotes tourism and brings the very best of Portugal to the outside world.

Brendon Williamson purchased this villa in 2007

I bought the villa to basically retire and lead a more quiet life. I had until then been more familiar with the north of Portugal which is where I used to frequent on business a dozen or so times each year for many years. I then decided to take my vacation there and was very impressed with what I found. The decision to buy here was an easy one of course and it was and has been the right thing to have done. I loved this villa from the moment I set eyes on it. I appreciate its close proximity to Obidos, and all the amenities so ideal as a location from which to explore the region.

Villa Adriana is almost Tardis-like; as one of my guests once described it. It keeps getting bigger as you go in. That is my feeling too. Very large and spacious accommodations and a wonderful games room that has been converted from what was double garage and completely done over in glass french windows with air-conditioning and plenty of natural light.

It is the perfect pad for larger groups who do not need to mind the neighbours, because there are none. You are never in danger of disturbing anyone and certainly no one will disturb you. Big 55 sq metre heated swimming pool with traditional covered BBQ and 6000 sq metres of orchards all round.

If we had only one word to describe the villa it would be PERFECT! Even if the weather is not that good as it was for few days in our case there is everything you can possibly need to enjoy your holiday. We would love to recommend Villa Adriana to everyone.

My thanks to victor & family for watering my plants and leaving the villa so spotlessly clean. You will always be welcome here when ever you decide to visit us again.

Quiet spot for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5
As a group of 7 we had a great holiday at Villa Adriana. The facilities at the house are brilliant - everything you could possibly want. The house is a really good size, and there's always somewhere you can go to have some "quiet time".
We really appreciated the location. It was very remote, very quiet. But there are plenty of places to go/things to see within driving distance.
We found this villa really good value for money. And the service we got in the run up to our holiday was second-to-none: helpful instructions for how everything in the house worked, suggestions of local attractions, and clear directions on getting to the villa in the first place.

I really can't fault our stay there. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Owner's Response: We really are pleased to hear that you had a good time at Villa Adriana. No matter how many times someone says it, it is still wonderful when guests show their appreciation in this way. Great. Please come visit us again in the future - either in Villa Adriana or one of our other houses.

Take care all.

Delightful villa in a lovely area.

  • 4 of 5
The villa is really spacious and luxuriously furnished. The pool is big enough for proper swimming but unfortunately the weather was not great so it did not get as much use as it might have. However the pool table in the games room came into its own and a pool tournament instituted instead. There is so much to do in the area also so the weather doesn't matter. Obidos in the evening is a joy and we also went to Alcobaca where we enjoyed a lovely meal as well as the sights. We also went further afield to Santarem for the agricultural fair. The town is interesting and the wine tasting most enjoyable. All in all a lovely family holiday.

Owner's Response: Thanks for you wonderful review. As I sit here in 34 degrees of heat it hardly seems likely that we had all that wind and cloud just 2 weeks ago. Glad that the games room helped to keep spirits high. I do hope you will come visit us again in the future either in Villa Adriana or one of our other houses in this area.

Best wishes to you all

Lovely villa near beautiful Obidos

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in the villa two years running and have enjoyed it very much on both occasions. This year we took elderly parents as well as a young child. The villa is suitable for both ends of the spectrum! The best thing about the villa is the gorgeous pool which can be properly heated to be really warm so is usable if the weather is not hot. The games room is great for cooling off and the villa is extremely well equipped generally. We love the area of Obidos and have visited many times over the last 10 years. This is the first villa we have ever revisited which says a lot! Just be aware on booking that as it is in Euros the amount due can vary depending on the exchange rate.

Obidos August 2012

  • 5 of 5
We spent our holidays in Vila Adriana.
The house is perfect : nothing is missing and very clean!!
We really appreciated the 20 channels to watch the Olympic Games in London at any time of the day.
We also enjoy the games room : very great area to play with the children.
The house is near Obidos : easy to go when you need to buy food.
We were not very lucky with the weather, a lot of wind, but we discovered a lovely beach in Baleal where the wind was not so strong...
Thank you to Brendon, he was very helpful.
