About Gary Brant
Living in the south of England just outside Brighton and had dreamed of owning a holiday home with easy access to it via a major airport like Lisbon from London Gatwick. We stay in the villa as much as we can . The area of Obidos Lagoon we choose because it was an easy drive, comfortably with in an hour of the airport in an unspoilt uncrowded part of the Silvercoast where there are strict controls on further planing development and surrounded by natural forest. The newly built and furnished villa built in 2009 is well proportioned having air-conditioning private pool and garden and private off road parking for 2 vechiles and we felt suited us ideally and the area has plenty to see and do and we fine we always receive a warm welcome from the locals.
Gary Brant purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Gary Brant chose Casalinho
I purchased this detached new Villa in late 2009 and newly furnished it because I though the accomadation was ideal for the family with 3 bedrooms large private balconys 3 bathrooms having air conditioning, & Free wi-fi ,private swiming pool in own garden and private off road parking for at least 2 vechiles .The area I felt was ideal being situated within a easy walk of the largest natural lagoon in Portugal with blue flag large sandy beaches and being unspoilt surrounded by a nature reserve and forest in a quiet situation and yet a short drive of amenities and lots to do such as swiming surfing sailing, bike riding and horse riding aswell as golf at many of major golf courses and there are many places of interest such as the medieval walled town of Obidos & fishing village of Peniche.
What makes this Villa unique
I love staying at the villa as its situated in a quite situation within less than 10 minutes easy walking distance of and sandy beaches the Lagoon with loads to do or we can just relax with no hassle and benefits from air-conditioning & Free Wi-Fi and yet the villa a short drive of amenities.

Fabulous Villa ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Great Villa, plenty of space, air con & rooms. We spent 5 nights here as a group of 5 adults. Close to some superb Golf Courses & Beaches. Gary was a great host, always available for any info and happily extended our 3night stay to 5 nights with ease.
The Pool isn't heated but after a few hours with the sun out it was fine to use.
Thank you John for choosing my villa to stay in for part of your holiday and i was glade you enjoyed the villa and area so much that you decided to extend your stay and that i was able to accomadate. I like you also thoroughly enjoy the golf courses that are very close to hand and try where ever possible to stay and enjoy the relaxed environment .
I hopefully look forward to welcoming you back one day for an even longer stay.
A fantastic relaxing holiday, in a beautiful location
The house was lovely, exactly as shown on the pictures. The position was good, sunshine on the pool and garden all day, great for the lazy afternoons we spent around the pool. The house was clean on arrival and the pool was cleaned both mondays that we were there.
The area is beautiful, although a car is essential, we had many days out within a 20-30 minute drive to some of the most beautiful beaches, rio cortico about 5 minutes away is a beautiful cove and well worth a visit in the evening when it's quiet to watch the sunset. San Martinho about 30 minutes north a lovely sheltered beach with an inflatable assault course on the water, our teenage children loved it. Baleal beach near to péniche was fantastic, a bit of a surfers town,we hired body boards and wetsuits, the water can be pretty cold, was great fun.
We had a few days at the lagoon paddle boarding and kayaking, only 5 mins down the road and the restaurant there is great value for money.
The medieval festival in obidos was a great evening out. But id also recommend visiting in the daytime and walk around the castle walls....wear decent footwear.
Plenty to do in the area especially for us with teenage children.
Finally, from booking, Gary the owner has been incredibly helpful, he immediately responds emails, I have sent a few since I booked, and provides as much information and help as he can. The security deposit was refunded without a problem. I have no hesitation in recommending this villa, it really is in a beautiful place, but you need to be happy to drive a little.
Thanks Gary for renting it out to us. Just one minor suggestion, if a pool net had been provided, we would havehappily kept on top of it.
Thank you for your review which was much appreciated ; I have taken on board your small constructive suggestion which was positively helpful as one can always look to improve the facilities over all .I was naturally very pleased to hear you found my home meet very well your expectations and really very much enjoyed your stay in what I regard as a quiet peaceful setting which I try where ever possible spend time in personally .
Thanks again for choosing to stay in my home

Booking this villa with Gary was so easy and stress free, he was very friendly and answered all questions promptly.
The villa itself is well equipped and feels extremely homely. The extra little touches like the basket of beach towels, books etc really made it feel welcoming. We are not long back and going in October was just the relaxing holiday we needed. It was very quiet in the areas around the villa making for a peaceful holiday but also plenty to do round about. We also used the pool which was great to cool down in after a day exploring, it's an ideal size as it gets heated up from the sun.
We had pre-booked rental cars from the airport which I would highly recommend for this villa, it was so cheap and really gave you scope to explore the area. Gary was so helpful suggesting company's to go through and the directions he gave us to the villa were so informative it made driving a lot less stressful than I had anticipated.
There are so many nice towns around the area, visiting Obidus is a must. It is such a beautiful place with great building and history. Around the villa itself it only takes around a 4 minute walk to the lagoon with spectacular views. There is also a lot of activities to do around the area and we personally went to Peniche for surfing which I believe was a 20 minute drive, well worth it!! We had a great time. There is also a causeway here which goes across to Baleal, it is such a fantastic area and so many little cafes with amazing views. No matter which way we drove we always seemed to come across spectacular views and little towns. There are some great little cafes and restaurants we went to just a short drive away.
We had such a good holiday for a very reasonable price and would definitely return again in the future.
Thank you for your review and kind comments made . I am naturally very pleased you had a most enjoyable stay and the companies i introduced you to you found helpful and cost effective.Naturally i can not guarantee the companies i introduced you to however i have found them reliable over many years and i am always pleased to try and offer suggestions to guests as to what may save a few pounds relative to your holiday as a whole if asked .
As to my villa, i very much regard it personally ,as a home from home with a few personal touches and when ever possible try and stay in my holiday home as it is situated in a quite natural forest surroundings with as you found many local restaurants and cafes which i find reasonably priced and find the local area unspoilt were you are sure of a warm Portuguese welcome .
As you said there are numerous places to visit and a wide variety of activities to do if that is your want and hopefully the information folder in my villa was a good starting point giving you positive suggestions.
I am pleased you found the villa and area offer good value for money and you had a very enjoyable holiday and look forward to hopefully welcoming you back in the future .
Contemporary stylish villa offers great access to
This is our 5th visit to this villa. We love the area and the villa.
We normally visit in the Spring or Autumn and love how peaceful the area is but this time we visited the last week of July 2016 and found although busier it was still very relaxing.
The villa is a true home from home. Three very spacious en suite bedrooms easily accommodate a large family.
A fully equipped kitchen allows you to cook up a storm and their is a BBQ for outdoor chefs.
My teenagers loved the fact they could still access WiFi and the TV has the main British channels plus an extensive DVD collection.
The pool is clean and very welcome when staying at 'home' for the day and the garden is well
maintained and whilst we were there the pool was cleaned and the grass cut.
The owner leaves a comprehensive folder of things to do in the area. Also the villa was spotless when we arrived and owners' directions to the villa were spot on and he is very helpful and accommodating.
We love the area. Immediately on your doorstep is a beautiful tidal lagoon and amazing sandy beaches. The area is ideal for watersports including paddleboarding, surfing, sailing and canoeing. The lake has a lovely path around ideal for walking or cycling. It is also ideally placed for world class golf courses. My son went Scuba diving locally in Peniche and said this was excellent.
The quickest and easiest way to get there is by plane to Lisbon hire a car and this villa is an hour north of Lisbon. However on our last 3 trips we have taken the Brittany Cruise ship from Portsmouth to Santander and loaded up our bikes and boards. This has proved an excellent extension to our weeks booking.
This is a first class villa and you will love it here.
Thank you for review I am pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and found that having gone at a peak time of year that the area was still peaceful and enjoyed very much the charm of the area which having gone normally at out of season periods
Always pleased to help you or any guests staying with any questions you may have
Also that you found the villa very clean a true home from home
Hope to hear from you as to staying next year
wonderful relaxing holiday
myself and my husband and 3 small children (7, 4 and 2) stayed 9 days in Gary's villa. We truly had a wonderful stay. The villa was very clean and very well maintained. Gary, the owner, was always on hand to comprehensively answer any queries we had. The pool as beautiful and proved a massive hit with the kids, who were in it morning, noon and night!
The villa is very private and in a quiet location, which suited us perfectly. Nonetheless, it is a short drive to a number of attractions including the great surfing beaches of Peniche. We had rented a car for the few days which I do feel was necessary unless you were planning on staying the villa and only wandering down to the local cafe's (which are also great!).
Thanks for everything Gary
