Wonderful and peaceful house

  • 5 of 5
We spent very good holidays last summer in this house. We were 2 families with children at the same time. The house is well organized for two families, and is large enough. The house is very clean (ladies come to tidy, what a pleasure for our holidays !), very well furnished, with washing machine, drying machine, and all what we need to cook (we made many pizzas in the oven outside ! We ate lots of fishes we bought in Caldas). + many good restaurants in the seaside.
Heated swimming pool was wonderful and we had a lot of fun (and totally securized with gates for chidren) ! Laguna of Obidos is only at 10 minutes by car and it was fantastic. Lisboa is not very far away and we went 3 times to visit.

We recommend this house for wonderful family holidays and thanks to Barbara, Michael for all their kind recommendations before we leave and to Alison who is in charge in the house.

We hope we come back !

Total Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5
The lovely peaceful location and the fact that you are not overlooked was just what we were looking for. The villa had all the equipment needed both inside and outside. We used the bread oven to cook a couple of nights which is fun (make sure the walls go white before cooking by spreading the embers to the back of the oven), we cooked whole fish covered in salt and also the same with chicken. About 40 mins in the oven, tasted great!!! and also good to sit round if the evenings a bit chilly. Being just a few minutes drive from Obidos was a bonus as there are some good places to eat there. We found a good restaurant down a side street off the main walkway.
The location a ideal for exploring and to know you can come back to this peaceful lovely villa at the end of the day makes for a totally relaxing holiday.
The pool is heated so perfect if you going early or late season and also can be fenced off to protect children.
I would highly recommend a stay here you will not be disappointed.
Thank you, when we come back we will be booking this villa.

Can’t wait to go back

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I rented this villa for a week in July and had a truly wonderful time. The Villa was beautiful with everything you could possibly want for a relaxing week away from it all. Tasteful and comfortable furnishings and décor made this really feel like a home away from home. The Pool was warm and the general layout and spaciousness meant that even with eight of us there we were never under each others feet and there was always a quiet corner somewhere to sit down with a good book.



The villa is Just a short drive from the very picturesque Obidos, numerous beaches (the info pack in the villa was very useful here), and supermarkets and other local conveniences.



Overall I can’t recommend this villa highly enough and can’t wait to go back there and I’m sure my friends would agree.

An excellent holiday!!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second holiday at the villa. The villa is set in a quiet, unspoilt location close to the beautiful Obidos & the beach & has beautiful views. it has everything you could possible need & our stay was again perfect. The property was clean, tidy & the pool was lovely and warm. we basically just stayed at the villa, going to the 3 very close supermarkets for food & cooking BBQ's every night. We even used the bread oven!!! I would recommend this property to everyone (we went with a 2yr old & 6 month old baby) I also thought the gate across the pool was an excellent idea! There are lots of nice restaurants in Obidos & you can spend a good afternoon walking around & taking in the beautiful views! Foz is also close & worth visiting for the beach. We are going to book 2 weeks next year & cannot wait to go back! An A+++ Holiday! Thank you!!!!!

We had a very relaxing holidays there...

We had a very relaxing holidays there...

Easy to find the house driving from Lisbon:

The house both inside and outside is very well and fully equiped and clean, the pool is 29-31 degrees, the area is quiet. Lot of facilities few kms around to buy food (big and small supermarkets and little grocery shops as well).

Every evening around 6pm the bread is brought to the door !

Obidos is a very charming small medieval city. Ocean is not so far (but anyway too icy to swim).

Only negative comment is that there are far too many flies in the house's area, this was a bit of a burden, but the teens enjoy spending some time fighting them.

Thanks also to the warm welcoming form the English lady house keeper.

We would definitely rent it again if going back to Portugal (so nice country and friendly people).
