Casa do Sobral was ideal for our family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our needs - very comfortable, spacious and with the most beautiful garden and accompanying, very private and much appreciated swimming pool. The hosts, Cristina and Edouardo, were delightful, attentive and very welcoming. The village was small and peaceful and very well located for a range of visits to nearby spots - the wonderful beach at Foz D'Arelho, Obidos, Caldas - with its fantastic ceramics and cycling museum - and, a bit further afield, Sintra, Cascais - home of the stunning Paula Rego gallery - and Lisbon.

Owner's Response: Dear Neil and Family; We enjoyed very much having you as guests at Casa do Sobral. We could not have hoped for better guests, and we are delighted that you interpreted rather well the spirit and purpose of the property. It was a nest to our family for 250 years, and since we moved out, it did seem a waste not to share it with people such as yourselves, thus the reason why we decided to convert Casa do Sobral into a Rural House Rental. Many thanks for your valued review and hope to see you all here again, sometime in the future.

nice villa in quiet village

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this property are lovely people and very helpful, welcoming and extremely caring. The house is spacious and has many rooms, it was actually too big for the 4 of us, however the interior would improve in our opinion if the furniture would be updated. The outdoor area and garden and pool are great. The church bells are loud (across the street). The kids loved praia do Foz do Arelho the best (water freezing cold though).There's plenty of things to do & visit in the surrounding area.

12 wonderful days in a peaceful place.

  • 5 of 5

Cristina and Eduardo were wonderful and helpful hosts. Their historic and beautiful property is located in Sobral da Lagoa small village located about 4km from the Obidos. We used local transportation ( mostly buses and occasional the taxi) to get around.The village has a general store / cafe where we could get all our necessary supplies and mix with the friendly locals.The house in Sobral is beautifully maintained, and the garden setting, buildings and pool allowed us to have a most a restful and enjoyable holiday. Although Obidos is the most noted place in the area, we particularly enjoyed Caldas da Rainha, with it's history,daily market, shops and great restaurants.

Again many thanks to Cristina and Edouardo for their wonderful home and property enabling us to have an unforgettable time.

Cristina et Eduardo forment un couple charmant et sympathique. Quel accueil chaleureux et calme ils nous ont donné!

La maison contient un grand nombre de pièces, toutes bien équipées. Tout était bien entretenu et propre. La douche est très agréable. Nous avons vraiment apprécié les serviettes épaisses ainsi que les bouteilles d'eau dans le frigo et sur chaque table de nuit.

Le jardin nous à donné beaucoup de moments de plaisir et de détente. Les fleurs, les arbres, la pelouse et la piscine: vraiment un petit paradis.

La maison est située dans le centre du village, près de l'église et du supermarché. Ce magasin est petit mais vend beaucoup de produits et du bon pain frais.

Nous avons passé une semaine magnifique dans Casa do Sobral et peut-être nous y retournerons un jour!

Merveilleux séjour en famille

  • 5 of 5

Nous rentrons de notre séjour absolument ravis. La maison de Cristina et Eduardo est extraordinaire, remplie d'histoire familiale, grande, bien équipée, impeccablement tenue et très agréable à vivre. Le jardin, avec ses arbres fruitiers et ses fleurs, est un petit paradis. La piscine a fait le bonheur de nos enfants et le nôtre aussi ! Le petit village est joli, avec ses maisons anciennes et ses belles vues sur la campagne environnante. La petite épicerie-café-boulangerie permet de trouver tout ce dont on a besoin et une petite camionnette passe régulièrement avec la pêche du jour ! Depuis Sobral da Lagoa, nous avons pu facilement partir à la découverte de toutes les richesses de la région, plages, lagune, monastères, musées, sans oublier Lisbonne, à une petite heure de route. Cristina et Eduardo sont aussi une mine d'informations sur les lieux à découvrir. Notre seul regret est de ne pas avoir pu rester plus longtemps ! Un immense merci à nos hôtes de leur accueil chaleureux dans cet endroit merveilleux.

Beau séjour au Portugal!

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons aimé cette belle maison ancienne et surtout son jardin luxuriant et plein de charme. Malheureusement le temps nous a empêché d'en profiter pleinement. La maison et très bien placée pour rayonner autour et nous avons visité plusieurs sites magnifiques dont Obidos, Alcobaça, Tomar, Nazaré et Coimbra. Nous avons adoré les "Pastels de Nata" acheté au café du village pour le petit-déjeuner! Merci à Cristina et Eduardo pour votre chaleureux accueil!

Owner's Response: Merci beaucoup. Il a été un grand plaisir de recevoir à Casa Do Sobral un couple si gentille et ses deux enfants très polis et aussi gentilles. Je regrette beaucoup le temps pas trés bon, mais il est un peu instable partout. Je crois que vous avez bien aimé la maison qui ont laissé en conditions parfaites. J'espère sincèrement vos accueillir au futur. Cristina Horta
