Margarida Shirley purchased this villa in 2003
we were looking for a place we also could call home, in a quiet country side, near beaches and not far away from Lisbon so we can make the most of weekends too.
The most beautiful view, a very quiet place and space to join friends and family where children can run and play games (for example, ping pong and football )
The villa is located in a quiet area (Make sure you get good directions) but is well located for attractions, the beach and amenities.
There is plenty of space both inside and outside the villa. We are a family of 5 and there was plenty of room for more people. It was well equipped and as an example there were plenty of pool toys for children.
Whilst we only ate at the villa once in the evening (a BBQ) the kitchen has everything you need for catering in.
In summary we had a lovely week and would recommend the villa for value for money and quality.
We spent one week in this property, this summer, and I'm only sorry it has been only a week ... the house is really excellent! Good pool and excelente barbecue areas; all conditions for large families, children and adults. It has a very complete range of equipment, it has it all! And the surroundings, Caldas da Rainha and Óbidos are mandatory to visit (do not miss them) as it never hurts to stroll through unforgettable places. The owners are very friendly and available, clarified all doubts and provided explanations whenever necessary.
It is recommended, without any room for doubt.
If you can visit the area and stay at this property, do it, it is well worth it!! It may be that we can also get back, one day (it's always worthy to think about good things, right?). :)
We are a family of 5 people (2 adults and 3 teenagers) living in Luxembourg. We rented this house for 2 weeks this summer. We really had a lovely time there. The swimming pool is fabulous, very sunny, the garden is lovely, the view breathtaking! And how nice to be in a perfectly quiet place yet 10 minutes away from bustling activity (Obidos, Caldas)! The built-in barbecue was definitely a plus, we used it very often. In the heat hours we avoided the sun by lying on the deck chairs in the covered terrace while the kids played ping pong. In the evenings we sometimes went to the bowling alley nearby, otherwise to Obidos (beautiful medieval town inside a castle) or to Caldas, which has a very nice shopping center and several (good, yet cheap) restaurants. Not to be missed: the open air market right in the center of the town with the best and cheapest fruit, vegetables, bread and cheeses you'll ever see! The municipal garden of Caldas has a lake with rowing boats in it, we had great fun there too. Just next to the lake there is a café with a nice shady terrace where we often had ice creams, coffee and cakes (try the famous "pasteis de nata", it's a national speciality!).
The beaches are also great, especially the unspoiled Praia d'El Rey. Do try Foz do Arelho, it has a lovely calm lagoon and a wild beach on the other side the (sea water can be a bit cold though). We had an utterly enjoyable time, also because the area is not far from Lisbon (less than 1 hour drive) so we could go and visit the capital a couple of times (not to be missed, it's an amazingly beautiful city!) without having to pay for a hotel. Other trips we took which we would certainly recommend: Sintra, Cascais, Estoril (these 2 can be seen in one day), Peniche and its island Berlenga, the beaches of Ericeira (the surf mecca of Europe). Our advice: if you can, go for 2 weeks at least, one is not enough to see and do everything which is interesting and fun!
Grande famille de 2 parents et 5 enfants, nous avons passé un agréable sejour de 3 semaines à Obidos. La maison est très bien équipée, la terrasse et la piscine sont très appréciables.
Située dans un endroit tranquille, la maison est à qq kilomètres d Obidos et de Caldas où un très beau marché permet de faire les courses d alimentation. De la maison, beaucoup de sites touristiques sont facilement accessibles, la plupart à une heure de route dont Lisbonne ... ce qui est très pratique.
Maison agréable et située au calme, De nombreuses visites aux alentours. Propriétaires accueillants.
Nous avons adorés notre premier séjour au Portugal. Nous étions 2 familles (4 adultes, 6 adolescents) et nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette grande villa. Ce qui est vraiment appréciable c'est le préau qui permet de passer toutes les repas dehors à l'abri du soleil en cuisinant d'excellentes grillades. C'est aussi les hamacs et la table de ping-pong sous le préau pour s'occuper ou se reposer à l'abri de la chaleur. Mais bien sur et surtout c'est la piscine. La maison est idéalement située proche de OBIDOS (ville médiévale), de Caldas da Raihna, de Peniche, et à peine 1 h de Lisbonne. Nous avons adorés les plages de Peniche, la fête médiévale de Obidos, le marché qui se tient tous les jours à Caldas idéal pour les fruits et les légumes. Nous recommandons vivement cette location.
