Overview

Obidos Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Bright, spacious accomodation near all the amenities of the resort.

Situated in an attractively landscaped setting, on the top floor with views down 10th fairway of Praia del Rey's golf course to sea beyond. Equipped & furnished to a high standard with central heating for winter months. Shared swimming pool & unspoilt beach a short distance away.

Within 1 hour of Lisbon and near the enchanting medieval walled town of Obidos. Sintra, Mafra, the great abbeys of Alcobaca & Batalha are within easy reach making this an ideal base for golfers and non-golfers alike. The area is renowned for its fish and many local restaurants provide excellent food - it is still a relatively unspoilt part of Portugal.

Built in 1999 the owner has taken great care with the attractive furnishings of this light & spacious home.

The large fan-shaped living has 3 lots of windows including a triple french window leading to the balcony - with its comfortable sofa, chairs, tables, TV, DVD/CD video+ tapes, it makes for a relaxing environment. Easy parking, babysitting available.

There is a small supermarket in the complex and local shops/supermarkets within an easy drive. Praia del Rey's golf course was voted 13th best in Europe by Golf World Magazine and 'No 1 in Portugal by the Daily Telegraph 2007. Discounted green fees can be arranged through the owner of the apartment here and at other nearby courses.

This property is legally registered for rental purposes, licence No 3239/AL and also has a valid gas inspection certificate.

About Carol Mason

I was born and brought up in the Lisbon area of Portugal, married an Englishman, went to live in UK where I had my family, but now live permanently in Cascais (just outside Lisbon). I devised and lectured on Fine Arts tours to all areas of Portugal for many years, and know the country really well, having also written part of 2 guide books. I still write and do research work out here. I am also a golfer (rather a poor one !) but do enjoy it.

Carol Mason purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Carol Mason chose Obidos

I bought this property because I felt it was an area new to foreign tourism at the time, was on an excellent golf course and I LOVE the largely unspoilt coastline. It is also still a very Portuguese part of the country.

My apartment is light and spacious and I thoroughly enjoy my visits to it when it is not rented out.

What makes this apartment unique

Excellent position, views, spacious and airy accommodation.

An area of Portugal that I love, and if one is there during the winter and the weather is not so good, there are plenty of sites of historical interest to visit. I also much enjoy the local food, particularly the fish.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had wonderful weather, not a single day without sun. Perhaps a little fog in the morning, but not for long.

Priscila is a nice girl, she was very helpful.

Unfortunately my husband got an inflammation in his Achilles tendon and we decided to drop the golf. But it is a lovely area, so we have been to Alcobaca, Nazare, Bombaral, driving along the coast and of course Obidos and Peniche. And went for a walk to the beach as much as my huband's leg could manage. We had a great holiday, thank you. Best wishes from Denmark.

June 2011 - fabulous accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This accommodation is just as described. It is very spacious and had everything we could have possibly needed and more to make our holiday complete. A few minutes walk from the club house and 5 minutes walk from an amazing beach.. Also lovely views from the balcony to the gardens below.

Excellent location for visiting Obidos, Peniche and the surrounding area. We found plenty of lovely restaurants nearby too.

I would definately stay again and would recommend to anyone.

Thank you

Owner's Response: Ainda bem que o apartamento é melhor que aparece nos fotos ! Este ano tive varias familias hospedadas, e todos gostarem da localização.

I recommend it

Stunning location and a fantastic stay...

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this very spacious and well presented apartment.

The location was perfect for us as a base to explore the local area as well as further north along the coast to enjoy the many beautiful towns and lagoons on route.

The proximity to Lisbon also worked really well for us and we also found an easily drivable track from the within the golf course, cross-country to the swimming beach in the next town.

There were lots of helpful suggestions for places to visit and dine and we were greeted by a very friendly welcome and orientation on arrival.

Many thanks Carol - we absolutely intend to make a return trip!

Apartamento muito bom. Condominio muito agradavel

  • 4 of 5

Uma semana passada neste apartamento que é fantástico e que está inserido num condomínio muito agradável.

O apartamento limpo, muitíssimo bem equipado com tudo o que é necessário e bastante espaçoso.

Situado numa zona tranquila, de fácil acesso a vários pontos de visita e a uns metros da praia.

O condomínio também muito arranjado e limpo, com jardins bem tratados e uma piscina muito boa e um parque infantil.

Um agradecimento à sua proprietária, pela forma simpática com que tratou de tudo. Parabéns pelo fantástico apartamento.

Great apartment and resort

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to Praia del Rey, October is a good time to visit. This is a great apartment with 3 excellent bedrooms, two good size bathrooms and an excellent kitchen. Views towards the sea and 10th fairway of one of the best golf courses in Portugal. Good space in he apartment and good furnishings. Shop in the resort and a vegetable seller near the entrance. The club house and the hotel all provide good food and drink. Very convenient for exploring Portugal and relaxing with golf, tennis and swimming. Well worth a visit!

Owner's Response: This family with teenage sons thoroughly enjoyed their half-term break. The boys were particularly enthusiastic about the surfing at Baleal and though the Clube Aventura at the resort only operates in high season, they found plenty to keep them occupied.

The lovely unspoilt beach is nearby and there are marvelous opportunities for walking along the coast, in spring the wild flowers are spectacular.

The Lagoa d'Obidos is a short drive away and provides very safe swimming for children and the opportunity to windsurf. Picturesque Baleal offers good surfing.

Peniche is an ancient fishing port with most of its old defensive walls intact - a visit there to sample grilled sardines in season is a must. Drive there via Cabo Carvoeiro for spectacular coastal views. From Peniche boat trips go to the Berling Islands, a haven for wild birds.

Obidos is a 'pciture postcard' small medieval walled town. You can walk through its cobbled streets, climb the ramparts, browse through its many shops and try the local cherry liquer.

Caldas da Rainha looks fairly unprepossesing on arrival, but it does have a nice town centre and an excellent daily market selling local produce. It is famous for its ceramics.

Other Activities: Go kartking
