Coto Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Spacious 3 bed, 2 bath sleeps 6+1, ideal for families with young children.

The whole apartment is configured as a sleeps 6+1 with 3 bedrooms. 2 bathrooms and a cot. Though this can be rented as a smaller unit at certain times for considerably reduced costs.

The apartment has a spacious open plan layout on one floor with the kitchen, dining and lounge areas all sharing views over the terrace and pool towards the sunset, making the living area safer, flexible and enjoyable.

Electronic gates secure the villa and a safety fence with lockable gates control child access around the pool and garden. Pool is a great size 11 x 5m, uses salt and not chlorine for hygiene and less skin irritation and a summer cover adds 3-5 degrees to the temperature.

The garden is a suntrap with sun loungers and shady spaces. The terrace includes a BBQ with space and shade to dine out at mid day or in the evening, as well as a sandpit and toys for toddlers. There is also a games room with table tennis set up.

Families with young children: Assortment of games and toys for playing with in the pool as well as sun shades (parasol and pop-up tent), a wind break, boogie boards and beach boule. For babies and toddlers there are: 2 cots, 1 cradle, highchair, baby bath, stroller, various appropriate plates, cups & cutlery as well as toys and games.

Retirees, walkers, ramblers, ...: We have identified a variety of local walks, some out of the front gates, many within a 15 - 30 minute drive. They vary from short 30 mins to an hour strolls all the way to a good 4 - 6 hour rambles including walled towns, roman ruins and reservoirs.

The local City of Caldas da Rainha has a beautiful open park with boating lake, daily farmers market and museums.

The lagoon at Obidos has established walkways with bird hides overlooking marshlands and the lagoon shallows.

Golfers on long weekends ...: We're happy to price for long weekends and there are now a variety of golf courses all within an hour. Praia del Rai, Bom Successo, Royal Obidos and 1 or 2 more inland near Rio Maior. There are also 3 restaurants in the village all within 10 minutes walking distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Really enjoyed our stay here, pool great, people friendly. Nazare, Alcobaca, Obidos, Leiria, Peniche, Bathalha all well worth a visit, fantastic days out. The best beach we found was Foz do Arelho. Best restaurant is Paraiso, food is great, good value, plus the locals eat there too. If during your stay the medieval festival is on at Obidos - GO - its a must, a brilliant night, all for 7 Euros. Our overall rating for this holiday 8/10.

We are a small family concern specializing in providing a holiday base for families with young children.

James Collis purchased this apartment in 2007

The location 15 mins inland from several beaches gives great access to the whole Silver Coast, beautiful unspoilt Portugal. We've been steadily improving all the facilities over time both for ourselves and in response to guests feedback.

Large saltwater pool and south facing garden area. Fenced and secure. Lots of local activities and places of interest for all ages. some walkable others between 5 and 30 mins away.

A WELL-EQUIPPED APARTMENT IDEAL FOR TODDLERS

  • 5 of 5
Casa de Castelo is situated off a quiet village road. It includes a secure patio area where children can play in the sand pit or paddling pool. As our children (1 and 2 years) are on the adventurous side we were pleased that the apartment was completely secure for them. A shop and cafes are only a short walk away in the village and a supermarket only 10 minutes drive away. We could drive to the beach in 20 minutes which was very child-friendly. Lisbon too is an easy hours drive on the motorway and this offers attractions like the impressive Oceanarium.

The owners were very helpful yet discrete and their advice and assistance really helped our holiday. We would definitely come back!

WONDERFUL FAMILY HOLIDAY IN A LOVELY APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Portugal and we had our toddler with us, so we were really pleased to have stayed in this lovely apartment. Alison and James, the owners, were so friendly and helpful and greeted us quite late in the evening with a warm welcome and milk and tea bags for a cuppa, after what had been quite a long journey.

The apartment was tidy, clean and very homely. There was a large dining table and well-resourced kitchen. Our daughter loved the toys, books and DVDs that were provided. There was also a cot, baby bath, high chair and crockery for young children which was just so helpful.

The patio was excellent and served as a lovely little play area for our wee girl. She loved the sand pit. We used the swimming pool just once as it was just a little bit nippy at this time of year, but it was a great pool.

The apartment itself is in a great location as there are lots of places fairly close by that make good day trips, ranging from 15 minutes to an hour and a quarter in the car. We particularly enjoyed the beach and lagoon at Foz do Arelho.

James was really helpful in giving us ideas for rainy weather, and Alison told us about good places to eat nearby. One other thing to mention is that they provide a babysitting service which we took them up on. It was really nice as it meant that we were able to go out to a nearby restaurant and have a lovely meal, safe in the knowledge that Alison was looking after our little girl.

We'd recommend this fabulous apartment and would consider coming back again at some stage.

SPACIOUS, COOL AND WELL EQUIPPED APARTMENT.

  • 5 of 5
This is a modern, clean and well equipped apartment for anyone travelling with children. The salt water pool is a good size and there are plenty of toys and DVDs to entertain children. Our two year old especially enjoyed the sandpit. There are some really nice touches, such as a proper cot (as opposed to a travel cot) and all the beach equipment you can think of available to take on a day out. The apartment is ideally located for access to some stunning beaches (particularly Foz do Arelho) and the nearest town, Caldas da Rainha, has fabulous daily markets and a huge park with a cafe, boating lake and play park. James and Alison are very unobtrusive but always available to offer practical advice and offer suggestions about the local area (which they know very well). Overall, we had a great family holiday and will definitely return.

WONDERFUL FIRST HOLIDAY ABROAD WITH YOUNG CHILDREN

  • 5 of 5
We had a truely wonderful first holiday away with our young children, our son had such a great time he was very upset to leave. The pool is approx. 1.4m deep throughout so idea for children to play and learn to swim in and no nasty chlorine! The pool is nicely sheltered as well, so lovely to sit around. It is fenced with a lockable gate which was very important with our inquisitive 18 month toddler and the rest of the villa is also safe for young children. Plenty of toys etc for little ones. The villa was well equipped and well maintained.
James and Alison the owners were very welcoming and helpful, plenty of tips about places to visit. Foz was a great beach to visit and eating out in this area of Portugal was very reasonable.
In summary I'd have no reservations recommending the villa to friends, family or anyone else for that matter, hopefully we'll be able to go back again soon.

PERFECTLY

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a really fabulous holiday at Casado do Castelo. We were apprehensive about taking our 16 month old on his first holiday abroad, but the apartment was perfect and made life easy. There was everything we needed, saving on our packing and the chance of forgetting something vital.

The apartment itself was lovely, clean, fully equipped and very generously sized, plenty of room for toddlers to run around. The washing machine came in handy with a toddler, and the ping pong table was an added distraction for a budding ball bay! The pool is cool, but that works well after a hot day out and again there were plenty of toys to play with.

The area is quiet, you do need a hire car, with just a small, local shop in walking distance. The town itself is bustling, with a lovely, daily market and plenty of cafe's to enjoy, a really good play park and boating lake. Obidos, a nearby medieval town is also well worth a visit and sandy beaches are very close by.

The owners are so friendly, welcoming and very approachable. We would certainly recommend this property.
