The town is lovely with narrow cobblestone streets full of whitewashed houses with blue or yellow borders, flower-laden window boxes and terracotta roofs. From the town walls there are marvellous views of the town, castle, Roman ruins and surrounding countryside. There are a good choice of restaurants, cafes and bars, and gift shops selling local handicrafts. You can also try the local Ginja liquer. The town hosts cultural events throughout the year including an opera festival in August, a medieval festival in July and a delicious chocolate festival in March.
How to get there: The closest airport is Lisbon International; an easy drive of less than 1 hour along good motorways, and a short drive of smaller well marked roads at the end of the journey. Alternatively, the villa can be reached from Porto airport with a journey time of 2.5 hours.
A car is essential both for getting to the villa and to visit the many places of interest on this very picturesque part of the Silver Coast. Lisbon Airport has all major car rental firms on site.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a fine week in Obidos. The house is a very good place to be with a swimming pool which made the children more than happy. The weather was great and hot. If you are very fond of ancient walls make a break in Batalha, Alcobaca and Tomar. Lisbon is not very far away (less than one hour) and Sintra plus Cascais are wonderful.
