About Margarida Shirley

I'm 47 years old, married , with 3 daughters , work in bank, and this property is our vacation house . Renting will help with expenses.

Margarida Shirley purchased this villa in 2003

Why Margarida Shirley chose Costa de Prata - Leiria Region

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.

What makes this villa unique

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 )

Wonderful holidays!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of seven who spent two weeks in July at this wonderful house. We really loved it: the house, the garden, the pool.. The walks we took in the area through the orchards and down to the dam. The nearby village of Obidos is a medieval jewel and the daily fruit and vegetable market in nearby Caldas is fantastic. We will certainly go back.

Lovely villa in a quiet area but well located.

  • 4 of 5

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.

Always recommendable ... We had a great time!!! :)

  • 5 of 5

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?). :)

Great stay! We will definitely go back!

  • 5 of 5

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 maison agréable

  • 4 of 5

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.
