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.

What makes this villa unique

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.

A lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Nice villa

  • 4 of 5

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!

Wonderful holiday in a tranquil environment

  • 5 of 5

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

villa très agréable

  • 5 of 5

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.

Heerlijke villa met zwembad en prachtig uitzocht

  • 5 of 5

We hebben erg genoten van ons verblijf van 11 dagen in Casa Carol. Een heerlijke plek waar we ons 25-jarig huwelijk met onze vier kinderen en twee toekomstige schoonzonen konden vieren. Bij aankomst rond 10 uur 's avonds kregen we een rondleiding van een zeer gastvrije Alison, die ons een snelle rondleiding gaf, waarbij we bij elke kamer steeds enthousiaster werden. Er stond zelfs als felicitatie een fles champagne voor ons klaar! Het beste was voor het laatst bewaard: Een heerlijk zwembad (temperatuur 29 graden!) en prachtig verlicht. Zodra Ali(son) vertrokken was, zijn we direct het zwembad ingesprongen. En dat hebben we in de dagen die volgden nog heel vaak gedaan.

Het huis voldeed ruimschoots aan onze verwachtingen. Alles wat je maar nodig hebt, is aanwezig en het was zeer schoon.

De directe omgeving van de villa was heel rustig. Het dorpje Graciera is een heel klein, rustig Portugees plaatsje waar de huizen niet allemaal even strak in de verf staan, maar Casa Carol was puntgaaf onderhouden. Obidos is een mooi plaatsje en de Atlantische Oceaan is met een autoritje van 15 minuten vlakbij.

De eigenaar Carol en haar agenten Charlie en Ali waren zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Een absolute aanrader wat ons betreft!

"Home away from Home" - Stunning

  • 5 of 5

We are a couple and stayed at Casa Carol for 1 week from 18/04/15 - 25/04/15. From the moment we arrived to our home from home everything was excellent. The booking process was speedy and extremely informative. The owner was very accommodating in responding to my many questions. From first impressions and throughout our stay, we were 'wowed'. Carol you have a wonderful and inviting home and that is exactly how we felt. The house is very spacious and extremely well equipped. Decor is beautiful. The pool and gardens are very spacious. Being on holiday in Portugal at end of April with the sunshine we were graced with made the week even better. Lounging by the sunny pool by day and chilling with a glass of vino following our BBQ at night was sumptuous. The itinerary and information booklets were a great asset and I found myself reading it each night planning our trips for the next day. (Our own holiday rep in a guidebook) The old town of Obidos is very quaint and didn't disappoint. The nearby beaches were stunning with particular mention to Nazare, What an oasis! This is our first trip of such a nature and I have been recommending it to family and friends since we returned. As the house is so spacious I have already put it to family menbers to join us again at this beautiful villa later in the year. Watch this space ...Review no. 2 may be on the way. Thank you Carol for allowing me to indulge in your beautiful home. It's a credit to you . Best regards Pam & Paul Treacy, Dublin, Ireland.
