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.
The house has a good level of finish, it was clean and easy to find. The neighbourhood is quiet and nearly all tourist rentals, so very quiet in the off season. It's a bit out of the way but near to the lagoon and a good base for the area, car needed.
