Obidos Town Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Luxurious private cottage to hideaway or just relax

Casa d'Alma is 5 minutes walk from the front gates of Obidos, a walled medieval town with its own castle, plenty of restaurants, cafes and charm. This fully restored cottage is in the village of Pinhal, and has three double bedrooms, two bathrooms (one en-suite), a kitchen and open plan lounge with Satellite TV channels available in most European languages. A log fire and a conservatory/dining room. In addition there is a private courtyard for sunbathing and a built in outdoor BBQ.

Fully furnished with one king size four poster bed, one double bed, and three, 2 meter long, single beds.

Also included washing machine, dryer, dishwasher and microwave.

Luxury Egyptian cotton bed linen, antiallergenic duvets and pillows and towels are provided, and on your arrival you will find juice, water and wine in the fridge along with cheese, ham, fresh bread.

Local Information: The village of Pinhal is situated just outside the castle walls of Obidos. It is an old village just 5 minutes walk from the main gates of Obidos. There are plenty of big supermarkets within 5 or 10 minutes drive, but best of all, the village mini-market/bar/coffee shop is about 30 seconds away just round the corner from the house. So if you forget anything vital, wine, matches, eggs you just pop round anytime between 09.00 in the morning and 10.00 at night.

Obidos Events: The Town of Obidos has many festivals, concerts and events each year, The International Festival of Chocolate, The Medieval Fair, usually in July a fantastic Fair, so much to see and different themes every day, what an experience, sitting at a wooden table as the sun goes down in the middle of a medieval market. Smelling the woodsmoke from the open fire over which your meat is being roasted and being surronded by jugglers, street vendors and market traders, all in costume and the Christmas Festival with 'snow', ice skating and many winter themed events.

Surfing, Golf, beaches and restaurants: Some of the best surfing in Europe can be experienced in Peniche at Baleal beach which is 15 minutes drive away.

Fantastic golfing at the Praia D'El Rey Golf Resort about 20 minutes drive.

There are many beaches and seaside resorts to visit in the local area and a huge number of restaurants to enjoy.

'A Gem'

We stayed at Casa D'Alma for two weeks in June. We flew into Lisbon airport and approx 50 min drive, motorway all the way.This property ticks all the boxes. We were met on time by the lovely Rowena who was very informative. A very generous welcome pack was also at hand. The cupboards were full of all the little things that normally you need to buy when selfcatering. The house is full of character. It is spotlessly clean with very good quality bed linens and towels. The house was lovely and cool even when it was hot outside. We had many lovely walks on the nearby rural quiet roads watching farmers with their pear, lemon and orange trees. The location of the house is excellent, just a short walk to the town of Obidos. Obidos is fantastic. When we didn't cook in we dined in some of the many excellent restaurants in Obidos.We also enjoyed the local wine and fresh produce. It is well worth hiring a car as we were spoilt with the amount of fantastic beaches within 20-30 min drive. The locals celebrate the Saints feast days with great food, music, wine etc, very enjoyable evenings. We intend to return to Obidos and would book this house again. We really loved it. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a great house and great value.

A Beautiful Hideaway

  • 5 of 5
Just had a thoroughly romantic long weekend at this truly delightful cottage nestling in the village of Pinhal just below the historic city of the Queens - the tiny walled city of Obidos. My 4th visit. Great as a romantic getaway or for groups of friends and also for families with older children. This little house has everything you could need; the comfy kitchen/living area with satellite TV - keeps teenagers amused - and all the kitchen equipment you could need, leads through a light airy dining room to the sunny, private courtyard complete with barbecue, raised flower beds, tables/chairsand sun loungers. A wonderful spot for lazy breakfasts. The romantic downstairs double bedroom has a fourposter and it's own bathroom. Waking up to watch swallows through the skylight is a delight. A large main bathroom is also downstairs and has washing machine and a tumble dryer - great after days on the beach. Upstairs one bedroom has three beds and plenty of room for teenage lads to spread their stuff. My daughter has previously languished like a princess in the pretty other double bedroom - period furniture and crisp Egyptian cotton sheets under dark wood beams. The location is superb for exploring the beautiful and historic Obidos with its medieval walls, narrow streets, tumbling flowers, restaurants and bars plus all the region. Orchard strewn countryside hills take you to Peniche's long white sand surf beaches, bustling Foz do Alreho or the quiet sandy lagoon at Salir Do Porto, all only 20 minutes away. A little shop is just next door for essentials and a supermarket 5 minutes drive up the road. All this and it's just an hour from Lisbon.
