Great location right outside of the Castle wall!
Very comfortable for our family of 5. Great kitchen to use... we used BBQ and cooked dinner 2 nights, we ate in back patio area. And easy parking on street in front or can park in locked garage area. Would stay again.
Gute saubere Wohnung direkt im Zentrum
Wir waren mit fünf erwachsenen Personen in der Wohnung und hatten keine Probleme. Alles war sauber und genüngend Geschirr. Besonders schön war, dass wir unser Auto vor der Haustüre parken konnten auch wenn die Zufahrt etwas eng war. Nur eine deutsche Kaffeemaschine haben wir vermisst und der Verkehrslärm hat etwas gestört.
Great location, well equipped property
Outside the wall of Obidos, with underground parking. Very clean, well equipped house with excellent outside space to eat and relax. Good location to visit our favourite beach at Baleal, cortico and Buddha Eden. Plenty to see in Obidos with lots of lovely places to eat. Great time, would definitely recommend. It was my daughter's partners first visit to the area and he thoroughly enjoyed it.
The Silver Coast never fails to disappoint new or previous visitors as it is so varied, with wonderful beaches, great food and interesting history and culture.
Our home in Obidos is a great spot for visiting the area, and we hope we have made it comfortable for our guests - it's our bolthole too, so we want some home comforts as well!
Pleased that your family had a great holiday, please come back and visit soon!
Nice town and great house
Clean and convenient with a lovely sunny courtyard.
Everything we expected and more
This delightful house was the ideal place to spend Christmas & New Year.
The property had everything you needed & is ideally situated to enjoy Obidos at this time of year.
We followed most of the suggestions for places to visit & were never disappointed.
Personal favourites were Sao Martinho do Porto & Sao Pedro to Model.
Would we return to this area & house - certainly.
Thank you for your lovely review, we do appreciate you taking the time to post. You are most welcome to stay with us again.
Spacious, comfortable in a great location
The house was well equipt, clean and close to the walls of Obidos with only a short drive to the beach and other attractions. Added bonus of a sun terrace, BBQ facilities, and fast wifi connection. Highly recommended 👍🏻
