It is equipped with all amenities and sleeps 7.

Wonderful views from the gardens and the most beautiful churches of Óbidos. Here you can experience the spirit of this medieval village, one of the most enchanting and visited places in Portugal.
Although I was born and always lived in Lisbon, two years ago I changed the Portuguese capital for the enchanting village of Obidos, the village of my grandparents, where my father born and grew up, and that I had visited and where I had spent my holidays since my childhood. So I have a great love for this village, where in their driveways still remember my childhood games!
Gabriela Martins purchased this cottage in 2012
This lovely little house is situated right next to my family home, where I live nowadays.
When I heard that it was for sale, a dream a dream evolved inside me. As fast I as I could I bought it from its previous owners, a lovely old couple now living near Lisbon. Now the dream came true when the purchase and I just love to receive my guests the best possible way !
'Casa da Travessa' location couldn't be better! Inside the Óbidos Castle walls, it is a very central house because it is just a few steps from Rua Direita, the most popular and touristic street in Óbidos. Nevertheless, 'Casa da Travessa' is in a very quiet and beautiful lane, where you can appreciate wonderful views to some gardens and Óbidos churches!
Awsome house in wonderful village! Everything as described and owner, Gabriela, was always available for tips and suggestions for activities. Our stay couldn't have been better and we would happily come back.
Portugal is very friendly!
We did not receive a message from Gabriela until 12:00pm the day of the rental and when I asked for directions to the property she did not provide them, even when I asked twice for the information over a span of the hours 1200-1500. We visited the tourist haven of Obidos and quickly left due to the hoards of tourist buses and crowds. We had a flight to catch back home the following morning so opted for another night stay at a hotel in Lisbon instead. I can't comment on the property however the communication from Gabriela was lacking the information we asked, namely the address so we could reach the location to check-in!!!
We highly recommend this comfortable house in the UNESCO town Obidos. It was very simple to book and pay for the accommodation. The host Gabriela is very kind, answered quickly to all e-mails and explained all needed details. She, visited us in front of the village and leaded to our house and parking place. The house is located in narrow extraordinarily beautiful street right in the center of town. At the same time the surrounding is quiet and safe. The house is covered with blooming bushes and flowers. We had welcoming wine and biscuits on the kitchen´s table. Gabriela shared us kindly all needed information about surrounding and activities. Th house is small but had enough space for our family of 4 adults. The living room and two bedrooms are tastefully decorated, very comfortable, romantic and clean. The kitchen is well equipped and consists all needed staff. The Obidos itself is one of the most beautiful towns we have ever seen. Also there are beautiful beaches very close by car. Lissabon and Sintra, Alcobaca, Tomar and Fatima are not far for one day trip. So we highly recommend the house and the town for longer stay.
Thank you, dear Gabriela, for making our stay unforgettable!
Pille with her family
My family of 5 was greeted by a warm, friendly owner who did her utmost to ensure we had a comfortable stay. The property was clean and well maintained. The location was incredible. We explored the "little city" enclosed within the walls and loved the food/shops. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting an adventure (11 year old son's input) and to learn about medieval time. Great place for kids. Only complaint from my kids was that the wifi was a little slow - they shouldn't have been interested in the wifi!!!!!
There was also a nearby beach that will be forever etched in my memory. Loved our stay!
Estive três dias nesta casa. Muito acolhedora e muito bem localizada. Serviço 5 estrelas. Recomendo!
Lovely cottage in the heart of medieval Obidos. It was very clean, quiet, and bright. The kitchen was spacious and had everything we needed. The owner - Gabriela - was extremely thoughtful. She anticipated all of our needs (i.e. had purchased snacks and a liter of milk for breakfast for the first morning, and arranged for a taxi to assist us during our stay). She was an absolutely wonderful host! I would highly recommend staying here. Obidos has a rich history - there is a lot to see and do! Taxi driver (Candido) was also very helpful.
At 'Casa da Travessa' you can experience the spirit of this medieval village, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage place. Ideal for strolling through the narrow cobblestone streets, visiting the Castle and some of its most beautifull monuments.
Here you can listen to the silence interpersed by the sound of the swallows and trotting horses.
All these experiences, plus going to the typical bars where you should drink the famous 'Ginginha' (a 'cherries' liqueur) in a chocolate cup, attend live music in restaurants and terraces, visit unique museums and appreciate the exceptional views.
Visit us throughout the whole the year, taking advantage of the various events in Obidos Town: Holy Week - Easter (29/3 to 5/4), International Chocolate Festival (16/4 to 3/5), Medieval Fair (July) and Obidos Village Christmas (December).
