Ideal for a relaxing holiday and convenient touring

  • 5 of 5

This villa supplied all I needed for a very enjoyable stay. It provided attractive surroundings in a traditional style and was equipped with all the conveniences of home. It was very clean and well kept including the pool which in mid-June was warm enough to enjoy whenever the sun was out, which was most days.

The owner speaks very good English and welcomed me explaining all I needed to know. Written Instructions on appliances and local information was thoughtfully provided. I was then left to enjoy the villa in complete privacy just as I wanted. Any necessary help was promised should I phone the owner but none was needed. Amongst the TV channels available were regular English -speaking films and documentaries etc. though what I found was a bit hit & miss through not being able to find a Guide channel. A number of DVD's and books were also provided.

I was slightly concerned about the location being perhaps hard to find, though the owner gave good initial directions. As it turned out, it was on a kind of long loop of country road joining up at both ends with a main road past the hilltop castle visible from miles away. This is a major tourist attraction, though not to the point of being overly crowded, at least in June. Also along that road was a good-sized open all hours supermarket and petrol station. So the location proved really very convenient. From Obidos the coast can easily be explored as well as the inland areas of national park and mountains to the east.

This is a good and I thought fairly priced choice of villa for the time of year.

Luxurious villa with a great view

  • 5 of 5

We spend a great fortnight in this spacious, clean and well equipped villa and enjoyed our holidays very much.

It is a very quiet area and you feel completely alone although there are neighbors next to the house.

The villa is nicely located on a hill so that one can overlook the whole area.

In the house, we found everything necessary to live, cook and relax and did not miss anything.

Unfortunately we did not have very nice weather during our stay so that we could only use the pool and sundbeds rarely. Nevertheless it was a pleasure to enjoy the outside installations too.

Finally we than Paulo - the renter - for the excellent upfront support, the warm welcomming and the perfect support during our holidays.

We can really recommend staying in this villa if you are looking for a calm and relaxing time away from the crowdy toursism.

Sehr gut ausgestattetes Ferienhaus in Top-Lage

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt etwas außerhalb von Obidos in einer ländlichen Gegend. Das Haus ist sauber und mit allem ausgestattet was man für bis zu 6 Personen in den Ferien braucht. Der Eigentümer ist sehr zuvorkommend und jederzeit ansprechbar. Ein Mietwagen ist unbedingt erforderlich. Ein Supermarkt ist ca. 10 Minuten entfernt.

Das Haus liegt ideal um neben Obidos auch weitere Städte zu erkunden. Es sind vom Haus jeweils rund 1 Stunde nach Lissabon oder Coimbra oder Nazare, nach Peniche ist es ca. 1/2 Stunde. Schlechtwetter kann daher gut zu Ausflügen genutzt werden. Im Juli/August findet in Obidos zu dem ein Mitellalter- Fest statt.

Insgesamt ein sehr gutes Haus in sehr guter Lage.

Situated in Lisbon Coast, Óbidos is considered to be one of the jewels of Portugal's national heritage. It's outstanding architectural beauty is reflected as much in the winding narrow streets, and elegant white washed buildings and balconies decorated with flowers as in the ancient churches and the magnificent Moorish castle whose high protective walls encircle the town.

Óbidos lagoon is one of the largest salt water lagoons with a magnificent sand bar situated between it and the sea, supporting a great variety of flora and fauna. The protected beach and dunes make it a perfect place for water sports.

The dune golf course of Praia D'el Rey was voted the best in Portugal by Golf World Magazine (15 km from the villa).

The historic towns of Alcobaça, Batalha and Mafra are well worth visiting as well São Martinho do Porto with it beautiful bay.
