Only 800m from the gate to a medieval town, full of character and considered the pearl of Portuguese little towns.
My name is Fernanda and I am a kindergarten teacher on retirement process.
I studied here in the area and only went away for the college education. I worked in several areas of Portugal but settled down here and bought a flat, first in Caldas da Rainha, and then this little house in Óbidos.
I used to love my job but got very ill and had to retire earlier.
I purchased this house in 2003 and lived in it until 2011, when I married a neighbour and moved to his house in the same row of houses. We decided to live here, instead of purchasing elsewhere because we are charmed with this little corner, so close to everything we need and yet so quiet and in such beautiful environment.
In here we wake up with the sound of birds singing and you hardly believe you are 500 meters away from big coaches stoping by to let tourists out to visit the town, everyday.
From the porchway of the house where we can seat and enjoy a drink or a meal, while, if anyone passes by, they smile, greet you and move on, because they are neighbours, people who live here in the area.
From the ackside varanda there's a lovely view to one of the castle towers and the surrounding hills and garden.
The house is located in a village 600 meters from the town gate of Óbidos a small middle age town situated inside walls, 4 km away from a lagoon several km wide where water birds like wild ducks, crane, herons and other birds can be watched very closely. It is a touristy town in the centre of a region full of touristy attractions: a big lagoon with water sports like Parapente, wind surf, paddling, and with 4 golf resorts and clubs at close distance 16 to 25 km. nearby
All the facilities can be found at around 100 to 800 meters from the house: restaurants, bars, coffee shops, supermarket, public swimming pools.
Apart from the town there are walking paths all around the area.
