The Pacific Farmhouse at Quinta do Bom Vento was originally used for preservation and preparation of food and baking bread in the traditional oven. Although the bread oven remains as a feature, the 2 bedroomed 72 sqm farmhouse now has all mod cons including a dishwasher, WiFi access, flat screen TV and i POD docking station, but oozing traditional Portuguese charm of exposed stone, tiled floors and beamed ceiling. The huge bathroom has a custom walk in shower in addition to a corner bath, The North Pacific bedroom complete with rose window is upstairs with the South Pacific bedroom downstairs (of course!) with double doors leading out on to its own terrace and private garden. Both bedrooms have queen sized beds with mattresses and luxury linens that you will look forward to sleeping in. The Pacific farmhouse has been designed as a home not a rental and the fixtures and furnishings reflect this. With a private entrance and double doors leading out from the kitchen/living area there is plenty of outdoor space to dine out or in. And you can pick fresh rosemary or figs from the garden to prepare your dinner in the full oven, microwave or BBQ. Then take a stroll in the private wooded valley to work off dinner! Of course if you don't feel like cooking, there are a couple of excellent restaurants within 4km, and the delightful medieval walled town of Obidos just 7km down the hill provides numerous dining options. Bom Vento is a traditional Portuguese farming hamlet and we love the privacy, peace and pace of life here. However with Lisbon airport reachable in just under an hour, a choice of surf and sand beaches in under 25 mins (Supertubos, Baleal, Foz do Arelho) and the oriental sculpture garden of Buddha Eden less than 10 minutes away, we feel it is the perfect place to position yourself for a holiday base without compromising on comfort. Knowing how frustrating it can be renting rural properties and arriving to an empty fridge and cupboards, we provide an extensive starter pack including milk, butter, cold meats, cheese, bread, fruit, tea, coffee, wine and beer along with essentials such as washing up liquid, paper towels, oils and vinegars. etc. Recognising the ever restrictive luggage allowances on flights we also provide toiletries and beach towels

About Quinta do Bom Vento (QBV)
After being life long sailors we finally found our ideal port in Portugal. We spent the last 15 years of our life in the hospitality industry which we thoroughly enjoyed and have transferred our skills afloat to terra firma. Our quintinhas have all been named after bodies of water that we have sailed in and each have their own appeal and character.
Quinta do Bom Vento (QBV) purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Quinta do Bom Vento (QBV) chose Municipality of Obidos
With a name like Bom Vento (meaning Good Wind) this felt like destiny! We wanted the privacy to roam as freely on the oceans as we were used to, but without the space confinements! Despite being used to sea views we love being surrounded by green valleys and can easily reach various parts of the Silver coastline in under 25 minutes. The farm had been neglected but we wanted to bring it back to life.
What makes this Cottage unique
Although rural and peaceful we are only 7km from the delightful picture perfect medieval village of Obidos and also Buddha Eden the largest Oriental garden in Europe. A bus from the bottom of the hill can whisk you to Lisbon in less than an hour, and a choice of beaches in under 25 minutes. What was there not to love! The farm is designed around a central courtyard but each property has its own private spaces and aspect which means it is ideal for couples or families travelling individually or with friends who want to spend time together but alos have their own personal space. This is not a cookie cutter villa on a golf course. QBV is unique and oozes charm being faithful to its traditional Portuguese touches but with lots of luxurious enhancements! The original farmhouse, barn, outdoor kitchen, stables and wine press have all been converted into unique self catering accommodations for people looking for a memorable and comfortable holiday base. You will not be disappointed!

Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
We love pets and have a dog. We know it can be a problem travelling with them and finding quality accommodation so we believe we are being considerate allowing pets to stay. We are charging an additional 25 euro per pet per booking as no matter how good Rex may be, there will inevitably be additional cleaning. We do also expect them to be as well behaved (if not better) than their owners. We reserve the right to request guests and their pets to leave if we feel they are abusing this (ie we do not feel appropriate behaviour is allowing the pets on the beds or furniture -( much as we adore our dog, she has her OWN bed.) or causing a nuisance or disturbance to any other guests or the peace of Quinta do Bom Vento.
