A well proportioned Air-Conditioned Villa with 1 double & 2 twin bedrooms, 2 en-suite,& 1 further Bathroom /wc & kitchen being fully furnished & equipped to a high standard having a private pool. Also benefiting from Free Wi-Fi .No need to bring extra items such as hairdryers, irons & beach towels in your case.

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
I purchased this detached new Villa in late 2009 and newly furnished it because we 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.
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. The property is surrounded by a nature reserve & forest and there are many walks and bike paths locally.
I provide Beach Towels and Sun Unbrella Table and 6 chairs for alfresco dining and 4 Sun Loungers.
The Detached Villa is situated 10minutes drive of major golf courses such as the opened Royal Obidos golf course along with the Bom Sucesso and Playa del Rey and would suite a golf enthusiast.

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.
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.
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
we had a great holiday and found the villa to be very clean and comfortable. The outside space and pool were both great and we spent a lot of time relaxing by and in the pool. The area around Obidos is great with excellent beaches and local towns (Alcopaca, Beleal etc). We had some great meals which were generally very reasonably priced. Will definitely visit the villa/area in the future.
Recently returned from an unforgettable week staying in a beautiful location.
The villa proved to be very comfortable and totally lived up to the description provided - a true 'home from home!' It is located in a peaceful location but close to such a beautiful lagoon with an amazing and huge sandy beach.
The villa layout makes it feel very spacious and this is also helped by the wide range of facilities available, particularly the pool! It has been maintained to a very high standard and this is greatly enhanced by how clean everywhere is.
Gary, the owner, was particularly helpful and nothing was too much trouble. He provided very clear directions and instructions prior to the trip. There is also a very informative and useful folder available in the villa which was used regularly during our stay.
Have already recommended this villa to both friends and family members.
Enjoyed every aspect of our stay but particularly enjoyed visiting San Martinho, the lagoon and the water park at Peniche! Edgar's, Bica da Lagoa and Cais in San Martinho restaurants thoroughly recommended, particularly for their tasty fish!
The villa was perfect and just as described. The location is a little remote, but the owners directions were excellent. The house is a 5min walk to the lagoon path and 20mins to the main beach.
There is very little to do in the area - there is a cafe and two restaurants at the beach which were all very good and very reasonable. We tended to eat at one of the 3 every day. The beach is perfect for children as the lagoon is very calm and shallow.
Obidos is about 15mins away and is worth a visit for shopping, sightseeing and food. You will need a car as the nearest supermarket is here.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. The villa is lovely and the location beautiful. The owner, Gary, was polite, professional and prompt on the few occasions I contacted him.
I have been recommending the villa and area to anyone who will listen and am hoping to return next year with some extended family.
Thanks again, Gary!
