We are a married couple with four young children. We built this villa in 2010, and stay there ourselves as often as we can, and rent it out to other holidaymakers when we are not using it. Although we are based in the UK, we have a very friendly and helpful local manager in Portugal who takes care of the property for us and helps with any queries guests might have during their stay. My husband and I are also available on the telephone or on email to answer queries and provide background information on the area. We love the Silver Coast region of Portugal, and in particular the beautiful area around the Obidos Lagoon/Lagoa do Obidos. The area caters for a range of holidays, from young families wanting pool/beach to keen golfers to walkers to those interested in watersports, cycling etc. Obidos itself is a medieval fortified town with beautiful cobbled streets, shops selling local produce and an amazingly well-preserved castle and town wall.
Claire Colver purchased this villa in 2009
We wanted a house with a lot of space, light, its own pool and close to beautiful beaches and landscapes - this location fit the bill as it is so close to Obidos lagoon and the Silver Coast is not over developed as some other locations in Portugal now are. We bought the villa off plan so are the first owners and have been able to create the space we wanted as well as the interior look we wanted from scratch. The outside space and private pool means that we have the best of both worlds - the option to go to the beach or lagoon, or to simply stay 'at home' for the day and the kids are equally happy.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour, la maison, la piscine, les plages, Obidos, le lagon, ... Tout était parfait.
(English translation: We had an excellent stay, the house, the pool, the beaches, Obidos, the lagoon....everything was perfect).
The villa was spacious and very well equipped and had everything we needed. We were two mature couples so having two ensuite bathrooms worked well. We paid extra to have the pool heated to 28C which was perfect.
We had to be organised with the shopping as the supermarket is 15 minutes away. However, we were more than happy to eat the fixed price lunch at Edgar's for 8.50 euros and not cook at the villa every day!
After a an initial slight problem we had a fabulous time in the villa. Great location,nicely furnished and well stocked with all the essentials you could need. Pool heating was a must in May. Highly recommended.
Une villa magnifique, idéal avec nos enfant! La maison tient toute ses promesses...décoration moderne et toute équipée.
La localisation était idéal pour nous...toute près de la charmante ville médiévale d'Obidos et à même pas 1h de la capital.
Nos enfants on pu profiter de la piscine chauffée.
Nous recommandons vraiment! Merci à claire et sa famille pour cet endroit superbe au coeur de la lagune!

The villa is deceptively spacious and fully equipped for all your needs. We enjoyed cooking at home and sitting out on the patio enjoying the sunshine. The pool is wonderful to dip into when the sun gets too much.
We loved going to Obidos - it's an absolute must! We were lucky enough to be there during the Medieval Celebrations where the castle goes back in time and the many stalls selling food and goods are great. A walk around the wall is also a must be not for the faint hearted - no rails (a health and safety nightmare!).
We enjoyed kayaking on Obidos Lagoon. Further up towards the mouth of the Lagoon are fantastic beaches. There are a few really good restaurants around. If you don't mind going a little further afield we found a lovely restaurant in Praia d'el Rey. Fantastic to watch the sunsetting.
We loved our time at the Villa and look forward to returning there sometime in the future.
Tres jolie villa, agreablement decoree, tres bien entretenue et tres propre, parfaitement equipee. Jardin et piscine privee, WiFi gratuit, chambres spacieuses et tres comfortables, pas de vis-a-vis a l'arriere de la villa. Ce deuxieme sejour fut tout aussi agreable que le premier. Quartier calme mais proche des tres beaux golfs de Praia d'El Rei et Obidos, ainsi que de superbes endroits a visiter tels que Obidos, Nazare, Alcobaca, Batalhia, Tomar, etc...trop nombreux pour les citer tous. Belles plages dans les environs. Il fut tres facile de traiter avec les proprietaires, charmants et accommodants, qui ont vraiment pense a tout afin de permettre a leurs locataires de passer d'excellents moments dans leur villa. Tres bon restaurant, Tribeca, dans le village de Serra d'El Rei. Nombreux restaurants a Peniche pour les amateurs de poissons et crustaces. Un endroit ideal pour golfeurs, famille avec ou sans enfants, surfeurs, etc... Nous recommandons chaleureusement cette villa dans laquelle nous avons passé deux sejours fantastiques et ou nous esperons bien pouvoir sejourner a nouveau des que possible.
Beautiful and spacious villa in a very quiet area, perfect for a relaxing time. The villa has everything needed and more. Nice pool, wi-fi, lots of TV channels, nicely decorated, and very well taken care off. The garden and pool too are very well maintained. The proximity of the lagoon, gorgeous beaches, and fantastic golf clubs such a Praia d'El Rey (15 minutes drive) and the new Royal Obidos (less than 10 min.) make for a great time for both beach lovers, and golf aficionados.
From this location you are able to visit lots of beautiful places such as Obidos, Alcobaca, Batalhia, Nazare, Foz do Arelho, Sao Martinho do Porto, Sintra (about 75 kms), and walk on the Templars footsteps in Tomar - a must!!! So many more places to go to.
Very good restaurant - Tribeca - in the little village of Serra D'El Rey, and plenty of good other places all around ... Great fish restaurants as well in Peniche, Nazare or Sao Martinho do Porto. Dealing with the owner was a delight.
We highly recommend this villa, and hope to be back very soon!!!!
Less than an hour’s drive from Lisbon Airport, the Silver Coast is still largely undiscovered and unspoiled. The location is unusually ideal for families & golfers alike.This villa is situated by the Obidos Lagoon. This a large, salt water lake with a family-friendly Blue Flag beach at its mouth (a 5 minute drive from the villa). A nature reserve surrounds the development with numerous trails, and a path around the lagoon is 5 minutes walk from the property. The Silver Coast is known for its medieval towns and authentic fishing villages. Obidos itself is a charming walled town with bars /restaurants, and local shops lining its cobbled streets.The fishing village of Peniche is nearby - early risers can watch the daily catch be brought in, then sample it in one of the local restaurants. The Lagoon offers many beach side bars and restaurants. The world class, cliff-top Praia D'El Rey golf course, championship Bom Sucesso and Royal Obidos golf courses are all a sub-10 minute drive away.
