About the property

Contemporarily furnished, and within easy reach of breathtaking beaches

Casa Olivia is situated in the picturesque beach resort of Foz Do Arelho. It is a short walk away from the calm waters of Obidos Lagoon, and the rugged beaches of Foz. The calm waters of the lagoon are ideal for families with children, swimming, boating and windsurfing, while the Atlantic Ocean offers a great surfing beach for the more adventurous. There are a number of restaurants and bars overlooking the beach, where you can admire the stunning setting. This spacious villa is one of 7 in a secure complex with communal pool. With a an open plan reception/dining area, fully fitted eat-in kitchen, three bedrooms and three bathrooms (one en-suite) it will sleep six people very comfortably (2 extra on a blow up mattress). There is a private patio garden with dining area and play area. A barbecue area on the terrace over looking the pine forests. There is also a cosy fire place for those chilly winter nights.

About Glenn Barnes

We are a young family of 4, living in London, we are orginally from South Africa.

Glenn Barnes purchased this villa in 2008

Why Glenn Barnes chose Caldas de Rainha

As we live in London we where looking for a holiday home that we can escape to easily. Foz de Arelho has amazing beaches, and is still cheap to eat out every night, as it is still very unknown. We love Foz as is it very layed back and people are very friendly.

What makes this villa unique

The moden villa is a secure complex so the kids can ride there bikes without worring. Villa was built in a traditional style on the outside but is lovely new and moden on the inside. There is a lovely coffee shop close that has free wireless and has the best ice cream after a hard day in the sun. Local to resturants and beaches.

Lovely family stay

  • 5 of 5

Dziekujemy bardzo za wspaniały dom przygotowany na nasz przyjazd. To był cudownie spędzony czas. Byliśmy tam na Mistrzostwach Europy w badmintonie seniorów. Zdobyliśmy 3 medale. 1 złoty i 2 brązowe. Wypoczynek w willi napewno się do tego przyczynił. Dom był super przygotowany i niczego nie brakowało. Pogoda super no i ten ocean... niezapomniane. / Thank you very much for a wonderful home ready for our arrival. It was a wonderful time spent.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in this well equipped villa. The furniture, kitchen and bathrooms are up to date and clean. Everything is there when travelling with a small child, cot, high chair etc.. The pool in the complex is a great alternative if too lazy to go to the beach. It is very clean, as is the whole villa complex.

I would recommend this to my mom.

Alles in allem, sehr empfehlenswert!

Magnificent holiday in Foz

  • 4 of 5

All of us, my wife, her two brothers and their partners spent a wonderful week in the property of Suzanne and Glenn. This villa is an ideal place to stay: it is a clean and comfortable house with separate bedroom, toilet and bathroom for each couple. It is situated at the outside of a quiet village with good restaurants and all facilities in or close to the village. Although the weather was somewhat disappointing (comparable to what we get in Flanders this time of the year), it was largely compensated by the many opportunities for making one-day excursions in the region between Lisbon and Coimbra. We discovered a beautiful nature along the coastside and along the Tejo river and we visited several renowned historical cities. Unforgettable was the live fado evening in Troca Tintos, a small bar next to Hotel Real in Obidos which we can recommend to all music-lovers (only on monday evenings, preferably after reservation). Also birdwatchers that never spotted a hoopoe, may be lucky. We never discovered this magnificent bird in Belgium, but he showed up daily around the house in Foz. Therefore we regarded him for one week as the symbol of Portugal, instead of the colourful rooster.
