Guestbook comments from the owner
A group of us stayed at this villa for a friends birthday, and we had the most wonderful time. The village is so friendly, and everything you need is on the doorstep. We couldn't believe how inexpensive it was in the local bars and restaurants, where else do you get a glass of wine for 1 euro! The owner of the Irish bar went out of his way to cater for our every need, we enjoyed a wonderful champagne breakfast for the birthday itself. It is a place that feels like home from home, you feel welcome there from the moment you arrive. We'll be back!

GREAT FAMILY HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
This was an ideal villa for our family get-together of seven adults and four young children, aged between 2 years and 8 years.
The spacious layout of the accommodation was perfect, allowing us to enjoy quality time both together and apart.
The children were in the pool every day and enjoyed the use of the really fun water inflatables left by previous guests. The small shallower part of the pool was really useful for the younger ones.
The villa's location is in a quiet side street but usefully close to small shops, restaurants and bars in the delightful and friendly village. It is also a very nice 15 minute walk to the alternative beaches of the lagoon or the ocean.
We all loved our stay here, have no hesitation in recommending it and would definitely consider returning for another holiday.

GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
First of all we were so glad having found a house big enough for the whole group (we took both apartments). Then it was close to the village-centre and in walking-distance to the beach too - great, we thought! But the house itself was even better: we enjoyed our stay! Everything was just fine. The rooms are big, furniture very tastefully and kitchens are very well equipped. For a big group like ours it was fine having two separate apartments with 3 bedrooms, one kitchen and one living room each. So one always finds a quiet place and it never becomes crowded. I would warmly recommend the house to everyone! Thanks Kathryn for the fine organisation - all worked out just perfectly!

LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR THIRD VISIT

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from our second visit to this lovely villa in Foz and already missing our morning coffee and pastry from the local cafe/bakery. Our 4 year old had a great time playing in the childrens pool (which is perfect for little ones) and running in & out of the (big!) waves on the main beach in Foz. We had a lovely time, the locals are very friendly and St Martinho is only a 15 minute drive away which is also lovely and worth a visit.
The owner did inform us in advance of the building works next to the villa but I'm glad we still went as it wasn't an issue for us.

Really lovely villa, looking forward to our third visit.

LOVELY VILLA, POOL AND TOWN - BUT....

  • 4 of 5
We were a family using the villa and I have to say that the villa, pool, and the town of Foz were wonderful. The villa and pool were beautifully clean, had everything you could possibly want on a holiday and there were some lovely bars and restaurants and shops in very easy walking distance which was important for us with Grandma with us.
However, we were surprised to see a building site and crane just at the bottom of the garden over the wall when we arrived on Saturday afternoon. We were woken at 8am Monday with builders banging, cement mixer going and crane swinging overhead. The first week wasn't too bad as most work was below the level of the garden wall, but in the second week when they moved to first floor we had little privacy. A board on the building site suggests building work will continue to 2013. While I know the owner was not aware when we booked back in Oct 2010 as work only started March 2012 - People should be aware that building work is going on.

Owner's Response: It is a great shame that our guests were inconvenienced by the house being built next door, but thank you for your kind comments about the house and pool. As it is only one property being constructed, it should be completed well before next summer. We'll keep a close eye on progress! It is good to hear though that everything else apart from that was enjoyable, Foz is a great place,with everything you could want on hand, and we've done our best to make the house as comfortable as possible for our guests.

PERFECT!!

  • 5 of 5
As a party of 12 adults, 6 men & 6 women we can not recommend this villa enough. It is very spacious and well eqipped, it is very private even though there is other property around.

The locals are very friendly and everything you need is within walking distance. Little supermarkets provide everyday needs, just enough bar/cafes and some very nice restaurants. Larger supermarkets just 10 min drive away.

The walk to the beach takes 10 mins and is beautiful and unspoilt, best of both worlds with the safety of the lagoon for children to swim in and the beauty of the sea which provides a welcoming breeze on a hot day.
There are also bars/cafes on the beach and prices are very reasonalble for very good food, a lot cheaper than the Algrave!! the sunset is especially lovely to see.

The men played the 4 golf courses within a 40 min drive of the villa and again the standard was very high especially Praia del Rey.

The location of the villa is great to explore other places around, with good road networks, Obidos is a must to see!

We holiday in villas every year all over europe as a group and it was the first villa that acutaly stated the correct facts on the website, so many times owners state places are within walking distance etc and they are not, so thankyou Kathryn and Keith for letting us experience your beautiful villa.

Hopefully we will return.

JEAN AND FAMILY (12)

  • 5 of 5
Considering we had ages ranging from 3yrs to over 60(!) this couldn't have been a better location or place to stay...as everyone else has said previously the pictures really don't do the place justice, the house was clean, modern, quite location, family friendly with everything you needed at your fingertips. We really didn't need to go anywhere during our stay - The lagoon and park only a short walk away, shops, pubs and restaurants and what amazing views. Even the journey from the airport to the villa was easy. We have just got off the plane and already searching for dates next year!!! Thank you, a fanastic time had by all. xxx

Car: recommended

The villa is ideally located near all the amenities of Foz village. The huge beach and lagoon are an easy 15-20 minute walk, or 2 min by car. On the lagoon is a water sports centre and safe bathing. There are a number of restaurants e.t.c. in Foz and on the beach & prices are very reasonable. Sea fishing is popular here, & you can also book horse riding at the 'Quinta' in the village. There is top class golf within 25 minutes drive i.e. Praia del Rey and Bom Successo, & nearby you'll find the city of Caldas with a daily market, shops, banks etc. and also the amazing medieval walled town of Obidos with it's beautiful cobbled streets and regular festivals. There are a number of beautiful bays within an easy drive e.g. Sao Martinho and Nazare. Popular surfing beaches are found at Baleal and Peniche, and you can arrange to visit local vineyards. Lisbon is under 1 hour away with regular buses running from Caldas. Other historic sites of interest include Fatima, Sintra, Batalha and Alcobaca.

Golf: The climate in this part of Portugal is cooler than the Algarve, and lends itself to a highly enjoyable golfing experience with top class facilities alongside clear blue skies and a cooling Atlantic breeze.

The two nearest golf courses are the par 72 Bom Sucesso, a championship course designed by Donald Steel and the renowned Praia D’El Rey, a true links course designed by the English course architect Cabell B. Robinson.

Rated thirteenth best course in Europe by Golf World magazine and no.1 in Portugal, Praia D’El Rey has established a reputation amongst golfers as a major golfing destination. It has also recently won 'Portugal's Leading Resort' - World Travel Awards 2008. The Praia D'El Rey Resort also includes a 5* Marriot Hotel and Spa.

Both courses are on the opposite side of the Obidos lagoon, approximately half hours drive away.
