We had never rented a villa before or hired a car abroad. I’m very glad we took the plunge. We used a company that pick you up at the airport and deliver the hire car to your villa. The roads surrounding the villa are quiet and we soon felt relaxed and confident driving around. The villa was gorgeous and the surroundings very peaceful. We enjoyed many day trips, there are so many easily reachable places to go. We even took the shuttle bus from Óbidos to Lisbon for a day out in the city. We also spent a lot of time just relaxing around the pool, bliss. The sunset we saw at Praia de Rei Cortiço a beach five minutes from the villa was one of the best I’ve witnessed. Claire was a lovely host to deal with and it was a pleasure to rent her villa.
Great residence and great value. his is a fantastic place to take a break - wifi is from mobile unit and works very well. Cleaning is done by a local agent who look after the keys and provide an excellent service too. I cannot recommend this place enough - the caveats are that the area is at the coast and subject to coastal climate (5 mins away it will be much more arid) and also, you need to be able to drive . The beaches nearby suit walkers and sun worshippers. Hundreds of fantastic restaurants and supermarkets are within easy driving distance , 10-15 mins away. Surrounding areas are steeped in history. 45 mins from Lisbon by motorway to within a few kms.
