The Costa da Prata region: The Silver Coast is renowned for it's beautiful white sandy coastline and excellent golf courses. The villa is located in a quiet unspoiled setting and a car is essential to get the best out of your holiday.

Within 5 minutes walk from the villa is the Obidos Lagoon with a cycle track running alongside it from where you can reach Bom Sucesso beach at the mouth of the lagoon, or explore a lovely pine and eucalyptus woodland. We can provide our guests with details of bike hire, boat trips, watersports and a sailing school. Only 5 minutes drive from the villa are excellent golf courses Royal Obidos, Praia D'El Rey and Bom Sucesso, all with resort facilities. The golf courses at Royal Obidos and Praia D'El Rey have stunning views of the ocean. Prais D'El Rey resort also has a beauty spa and gym as well as lovely tennis courts with lessons available for adults and children. Royal Obidos Clubhouse and The Legend restaurant have excellent views to the ocean. The villa is equipped with two full sets of golf clubs for the use of guests.

This is an excellent location to enjoy a variety of beaches. As well as the natural beauty of the lagoon and Bom Sucesso beach, the beach at Praia D'El Rey is about 5 minutes' drive away. Slightly further away, the beaches at Baleal and the fishing port of Peniche are very picturesque and are world famous for surfing, but also have quieter spots ideal for family trips. Baleal also has a yoga centre with classes in a variety of styles. Peniche and Lourinha also have water parks. Further afield are beaches at Foz do Arelho on the opposite side of the lagoon.

Boat trips run from Peniche to the beautiful Berlengas Islands, a nature reserve with a 17th century fort.

Obidos: The beautifully preserved UNESCO national monument walled town of Obidos is a 'must see' place to visit during your holiday and only a short drive away. With its lovely tiled gateway entrance, the Porta da Vila, and cobble-stoned streets full of traditional whitewashed houses, churches and castle, it is a beautiful place to explore. There are a good choice of restaurants, cafes and bars, as well as gift shops selling quality local handicrafts. You can also try the local Ginja liqueur.

The town hosts cultural events throughout the year including a medieval festival in July and an opera festival in August. There are also very good guided walking tours of the town telling you about it's fascinating history and taking you onto a section of the town walls for beautiful views over the surrounding countryside.

The region also has some vineyards offering wine-tasting.

Portugal has many colourful wild flowers and if you visit in spring and early summer you will see a variety of tree blossom.

Further afield, there are many more places of historic interest, including Lisbon, Fatima, the university town of Coimbra, Leiria and the pretty monastery towns of Batalha and Alcobaca.

How to get there: The closest airport is Lisbon International; an easy drive of approximately one hour along good motorways, and a short drive of smaller well marked roads at the end of the journey.

Alternatively, the villa can be reached from Porto airport with a journey time of approximately 2.5 hours.

A car is essential both for getting to the villa and to visit the many places of interest on this very picturesque part of the Silver Coast. Lisbon Airport has all major car rental firms on site.

The villa is cleaned before your arrival and supplied with linen. Utility and cleaning costs are included in the price quoted. Before your holiday we send details on how to access the villa, contact details for our representative, as well as information about the area, activities and restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fine week in Obidos. The house is a very good place to be with a swimming pool which made the children more than happy. The weather was great and hot. If you are very fond of ancient walls make a break in Batalha, Alcobaca and Tomar. Lisbon is not very far away (less than one hour) and Sintra plus Cascais are wonderful.

Perfect summer house

  • 4 of 5

My family and I went to Lagoa de Obidos for two weeks this summer. We came to a beautiful clean house, pool and garden.

The house had all we needed and there were room enough, and we all loved the three bath rooms. My mum and I enjoyed the beautiful kitchen and my husband and father enjoyed the barbecue. The house didn't miss anything.

Only thing were the surroundings. It's a bit sad with all the miss kept houses and the shopping possibilities are very limited. But we went to relax and play in the pool so our needs were for filled. And Portugal has a lot of beautiful attractions nearby if you want to go sightseeing.

We are talking about returning that is how satisfied we are👍🏻😀

sehr schönes Haus in ruhiger Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

wir verbrachten eine sehr entspannte Woche in dem Ferienhaus von Angela und Colin Hand - es ist geräumig, modern eingerichtet und mit allem ausgestattet, was man braucht. und: es entsprach genau der Beschreibung. Der Garten ist sehr schön und gepflegt, selbst den Grill haben wir noch genutzt, obwohl es abends schon sehr kühl wurde. Jetzt - nach Ende der Ferienzeit - gab es allerdings nur wenige Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, auch nur wenige Restaurants in der unmittelbaren Umgebung. Ein Auto ist deshalb unverzichtbar.

Wir können einen Aufenthalt jedoch uneingeschränkt empfehlen.

It was really worth it...

  • 5 of 5

We spent a beautiful week in Villa in May 2015. The villa is really nice and furnished with good taste. There are a fully equipped kitchen,spacious bedrooms and nice living room. The owners were very helpful, was provided lots of information about stay and thinks to do. Beautiful surrounding with many nice places to visit.

It was our fourth visit in Portugal/Spain but I think it was the best one. Kids loved the pool and I strongly recommend the villa as quiet, comfortable place to rest.
