In the area there are lots of places to visit as well as good local food and wine.

Surfing is very popular at the local beach whilst for small children the beach at Obidos lagoon (3KM) is better for paddling and in the summer months windsurfers,canoes etc are available for hire.
5* Marriot Hotel with spas, restaurants etc.
There is a riding centre nearby and scuba diving around the Berlengas is done from nearby Peniche.
The area: The two nearest towns are Obidos and Peniche.
Obidos is a medieval walled town with narrow streets and bougainvillaea covered houses leading to the castle at the top of the hill.
Peniche is a working fishing port where day trips to the Berlengas islands (a national park) can be taken in summer. A castle and excellent seafood restaurants complete the mix.
The coast to the north is spectacular and we would particularly recommend Nazare (cliffs,furnicular railway) and Sao Martino do Porto (sheltered bay,lovely houses,the weekend retreat for wealthy Lisbonites)
Other interesting towns are Bombarral (wine), Caldas da Rainha and Foz de Arrelho.
Additional information: We are happy to provide visitors new to the area with additional information on places to visit etc. In the villa are cards from local restaurants,things to do etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner
'its imposible for me to moan about the villa,resort or the surrounding beauty, because all were beyond my expectations...Fantastic!' - Matt Farrar.
'I would like to say how much we enjoyed our recent stay at your villa.It exceeded all our expectations in terms of location, luxury, and comfort.
The presentation of the villa was superb in every respect and is of the highest standards.
We managed to fit in a round of golf and enjoyed the pleasure playing a tough but magnificent course.
We so much enjoyed our walks on the beautiful, long deserted beaches.
The weather was magnificent throughout our stay and we are left with fond memories of our family reunion.
It was a painful experience having to leave after such a short stay but I sincerely hope we have a chance at a future date to stay again.
Thanks again for your help in making our stay so enjoyable.'-Brian and Gwyn Shaughnessy
