Special interest holidays:-
The town of Obidos holds a number of festivals throughout the year. These include the medieval festival in July which cannot be missed, the town of Obidos comes alive with locals displaying medieval costume, food and dance. The highlight being a stroll around the medieval village with its display of entertainment, local crafts, food and great wine. Also in July is the famous wine festival in Bombarral. The Christmas festival held from December to January that will have the kids in amazement as it feels like a magic kingdom with Christmas trees and lights lining the cobbled streets, artificial snow and the castle walls covered in a band of Christmas lights. You can skate on the ice rink or wiz down the snow slides, It is a wonderful place to ring in the new year. There is also a chocolate festival in February where everything is made out of chocolate, life size chocolate statues on view and of course chocolate to eat and drink.
There is a daily market in Caldas da Rainha in the square everyday that sell fresh fish, fruit etc. However the biggest market is every Monday from 9-12 noon, not far from the square up the hill.2km This market sells everything you could possible want . . It's certainly worth a visit.
My family and I enjoy Portugal very much, the people are very nice, friendly and very family orientated. The great food and excellent wines! The climate is very pleasant and we have been there many times in October, November enjoying outdoor eating, BBQ's, sunbathing, swimming in the heated pool, looking over the valley at the stunning views. It’s a walker’s paradise with nearby forest walks, fabulous countryside and lakeside views, yet only 10 minutes from Obidos town. Casa Carol Villa is a lovely tranquil place to enjoy and relax in.
We had a lovely holiday staying at the villa. The property is fantastic with everything we needed to ensure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. The villa is exceptionally well maintained and was a joy to stay in. The views are amazing and the heated pool and outdoor area were a great place to spend time and relax. Obidos is a lovely town with great restaurants and a lovely place to visit in the evenings. We will definitely be back in 2017.
We had a very enjoyable stayed in Casa Carol Villa earlier this year. The owner was very helpful throughout the booking process, which was very reassuring.
The villa is located in a beautiful area with spectacular views and well equipped. It was very relaxing and perfect for what we were looking for. The large heated pool was a bonus especially for a night time swim. The house is close to the motorways for easy access to all areas, with many beautiful places to visit.
Lovely beaches just 10-15 minutes drive away. Great choice of restaurants to suit all tastes at great prices and the people are very friendly. I would recommend this villa to all my family and friends.
Looking forward to our next visit!
This is a lovely place with great conditions (inside and outside)- good for the families and couples who enjoy nature and peaceful moments. It presents an excellent customer service.
In five minutes we have beautiful touristic attractions to visit, Portuguese traditions to know and amazing restaurants to taste Portuguese gastronomy. I'll recommend this Villa to my family and friends.

We had a lovely half-term break at Casa Carol. Dealing with Carol was a pleasure; no hassles at all! From the directions sent for the trip to the villa from the airport, to Ali the house agent's welcome and tour of the villa, everything was well laid out. The pool was warm and inviting when we arrived. The villa itself was well stocked with all the things one would need for a pleasant stay. We visited Obidos (for exceptional food, look no further than the "Snack Bar"!), Nazare (fabulous beach with serious waves!), Foz do Arelho (nature's wonder). There are good shopping facilities at Caldas de Rainha (e.g. Vivaci). Overall it was a very pleasant time and would highly recommend Casa Carol!
The booking process was simple with Carol more than happy to answer my numerous questions before both booking and departure.
The villa is spacious and well equipped, easily accommodating our party of 4 adults and 5 children.
The location is quiet and peaceful (expect for our boisterous children playing in the pool!) but only 10minutes drive from Obidos Town or Caldas. You will need a car, but the villa is close to the motorways (which are a pleasure to drive on) and no more than 30 minutes drive from numerous adventures such as the fishing harbour of Peniche, the Obidos lagoon, waterparks and a variety of sandy beaches.
The pool was a great size and depth allowing kids and adults of all ages to enjoy the water, day or night.
We found some wonderful restaurants, with great prices and amazing portions! And the people of Portugal always made us feel welcome.
This was a lovely holiday with the freedom to do what we wanted when we wanted and to relax in a tranquil environment when we wanted to do nothing.
Thankyou Carol for sharing your lovely villa. I would highly recommend it to anyone
Nous avons passé un séjour en famille (7 adultes+3enfants) très très agréable. La villa est très spacieuse, très propre, très bien équipée, la piscine chauffée est un vrai luxe (28degrés). Idéal pour quelques longueurs le matin au réveil et magnifique pour s'amuser entre petits et grands.
Région : très bien située pour visiter de nombreux sites incontournables du Portugal (Lisbonne, Obidos, Fatima, Nazaré, Bathala, Alcobaça, Sintra,..). Et magnifique plage à moins de 15min. Recommandé à 100%
Très bien accueilli à l'arrivée par Alison.
