About Gunilla and Jimmy
Originally from Sweden, my husband and I fell in love with Foz do Arelho. We enjoy travelling and meeting new people, yet come back to Foz time and time again as a place to relax and get back to nature.
Gunilla and Jimmy purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Gunilla and Jimmy chose Foz do Arelho
The relaxed lifestyle, stunning beaches, clear waters, friendly locals and locally produced food won us over. We lived in the villa for a couple of years and enjoyed it immensely. It holds a very special place in our hearts.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa feels like a home - furnished so that we could live here with comfortable beds, leather sofas, handmade wooden furniture and all of the 'creature comforts' needed for an enjoyable stay. The villa is modern and spacious, with a private back garden and large horizon swimming pool. The house is part of a condominium of 4 villas, and we enjoy being part of this safe and welcoming environment. The swimming pool and balcony overlook the lagoon and it's just a short walk to the beach and village. The sunsets in Foz are unbeatable. Being in the villa makes us smile - we love it and hope you do too.

A lovely, spacious villa in a great location
We were really impressed by the villa, which is extremely spacious - there was plenty of room for 6 of us (4 adults and 2 children). The villa is located in a small complex of just 4 properties. This meant it was lovely and quiet and we always had the pool to ourselves (at least the kids did, the adults found it a little chilly!). The house was really clean and well maintained. The villa is located a short way up the hill from the beach. The walk to the beach was short and pleasant and the beach bars were lovely and very well priced. We loved the lagoon - it was clean and safe if a little bracing! We also went down to the surf school (escola de velo) and hired canoes and paddleboards, which was fun. We had a couple of really nice barbecues during our stay; we found meat prices at the local butchers to be very reasonable. We also enjoyed eating out and found the prices of local restaurants to be amazingly good. We all recommend the local clams. We didn't hire a car and found that this wasn't a problem. There are plenty of supermarkets and food shops in walking distance and we were able to catch a bus into Caldas de Rainhas. When we return (which we will) we will hire a car though as this was a beautiful area and we would like to explore further. Next time we will make sure we learn more Portuguese before we come as not everyone spoke English (which we thought was great - we know a lot more Portuguese now than we did a couple of weeks ago). The weather during our stay could have been better - there was some mist and cloud on a few days. However, it was still lovely and warm and we all came home tanned and relaxed. All communication from Gunilla and Jimmy was great and we found the welcome guide really helpful. Thoroughly recommend and look forward to returning.
Fijne villa dicht bij boulevard en Atl. Oceaan
Heerlijke vakantie gehad in deze fijne, ruime, schone villa met goed uitgeruste keuken een lekker en schoon zwembad. Ook veel ander vermaak en praktische spullen aanwezig (zwemboards, ligstoelen, parasols, DVD-speler met DVD's, etc.). Alles keurig verzorgd. Naast het zwembad is een terras dat (eind juli) in de ochtend en een groot deel van de middag in de zon ligt (zwembad en terras delen met de drie andere huizen, was toen wij er waren prima te doen). Aan de achterkant van het huis een eigen terras met gemetselde BBQ.
Boulevard met leuke en lekkere restaurants, meer van Obidos en Atlantische Oceaan op kwartiertje lopen. Ook in het centrum van Foz zelf nog aantal restaurants en kleinere supermarktjes (grotere supermarkten in Caldas de Rainha).
Kortom: een aanrader!
Alles in Allem wieder eine Reise wert!
Insgesamt ein sehr schönes, vor allem großes Haus, das sehr viel zu bieten hatte. Eine insgesamt schöne Ausstattung mit tollem Pool, einer kleinen Terrasse und einem Grill. Das Wohnzimmer optimal ausgestattet mit Fernseher und Anlage, zudem viele DVD's. Schade, dass für draußen nur 4 Liegestühle vorhanden waren. Zudem "negativ" zu bewerten, die doch ziemlich weite Entfernung zum "guten" Strand. Zu Fuß ist man mindestens 15-20 Minuten unterwegs gewesen.
Die Badezimmer waren in Ordnung, bis auf das im Doppelbett Zimmer, dort waren oben am Fenster schwarze (Schimmel?) Flecken zu sehen, da das Fenster nicht zu öffnen war.
Mit einem Auto ist es problemlos möglich, alle Aktivitäten problemlos zu erreichen. Wir waren häufiger bei Lidl oder LecLerc einkaufen. Ein positiver und negativer Punkt im einen war, dass es 4 Garagen Stellplätze im Haus gab, aber diese leider (für unser Auto) ziemlich eng waren, da es zwischen zwei Mauern 90° um die Ecke in die Garage ging.
Aber insgesamt war es wirklich ein toller Urlaub und ein echt schönes Haus! Zu empfehlen ist jedoch, dass man nur in der Hauptsaison anreisen sollte, da bei uns das Wetter noch ziemlich kalt war.
Thank you for your information.
The black spots are removed.
A fan will be set in place to avoid this from coming back.
Yes, the garage is a bit narrow for larger cars.
Welcome back, Jimmy and Gunilla
