This is a beautiful old 'Centenary' house over 3 floors on the walls of Obidos with a romantic story to tell. The house is at the heart of the Medieval Óbidos Town backing onto the walls on the outer side.
One hundred years ago this house used to belong to a very wealthy and locally known landlord from a very traditional family. All properties from this family were painted in pink!
Until today this is the only house allowed to be painted in pink in Óbidos! All other properties are painted in white according to the local rules that are now in place.
The house 'Casa Da Cerca' used to be the home for the Lord's mistress. He visited his lover regularly and arrived by horse from his family house which was a nearby farm (Quinta das Janelas). To avoid been seen by the local people he ordered his employees to build a small path up the hill to the house, away from the main street. That path still exists today, covered with cobblestones. You can see it finishing at the View point (Belvedere) by the house. At that time the ground floor of the house was for the animals and people would live upstairs.
The property retains a romantic charm with its glowing pink walls that contrast with the white buildings that surround it.
The property has 2 bedrooms and a double sofa bed in the lounge so it can sleep 5 comfortably. The 2 bedrooms have 3 single beds in total and both are en-suite. One of the en-suites has a bath with shower over, WC and basin and the other has a shower cubical, WC and basin. There is an additional bathroom on the ground floor with shower cubical.
The sunny and spacious living room has a private terrace outside for dining and sun bathing on the sun loungers. There is a BBQ and umbrella for guests use.
Inside there are two comfortable sofas and a television, an extend-able dining table for up to 8 people and a contemporary kitchen. Should you need it there are also 3 oil filled radiators.
A Wi-Fi service can be arranged for this property for the cost of € 20 per stay. Please be aware that this needs to be arranged in advance and it will depend on the availability of the device. This is a "Pay as you go" service and usually € 20 is enough for approximately 15 days of moderate consumption without large downloads.
There is free parking on the street.
A gem in the beautiful town of Obidos.
