Spectaculair uninterrupted views on Obidos and the surounding landscape and no neighbours in sight. A big pool, tenniscourt and gardens. It has everything. Not only ouside, also inside it is spacy, fully furnished and tastfully decorated. And very important, everything is new and works. The villa itself is spic & span ! Not far from the villa you can find some restaurants but in the beautifull town of Obidos - a 10 minutes drive - you can choose out of a many restaurants, shops and supermarktes. The sea is also not far away. In short, a wonderfull holiday in a great villa on a spectaculair spot. We will surely be back ;-)

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    The villa has a very comfortable, large open plan living room and kitchen area which opens out immediately onto the patio and swimming pool which has a barbeque, sun loungers, and stunning views of Obidos and its lagoon. We found this very relaxing after a busy day sightseeing and exploring the stunning local area. ( We even used the games room without having any children) We particularly enjoyed a local wine tasting recommended by the owners. The rest of the accommodation was just as listed, exceptionally clean, tidy and beautifully furnished. There was a useful book with information about the villa and all its appliances. Up to date information about the area such as places to eat, local sights and events etc. All the bedrooms were a good size with more than adequate bathrooms. We slept very well for the whole stay. We tried a number of the local restaurants which we found to be warm and friendly offering great food at good value for money. The villa is in a perfect location for seeing this area of Portugal. The lovely cultural walled town of Obidos, the sea at Foz de Arelho, amenities and other cultural sites at Caldas de Rainha including the local market and of course Lisbon itself. Overall I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to all my friends and relatives.

The house is situated on top of the a hill with an amazing view of the medival town of Obidos. The house was clean ,comfortable and spacious for our family. Richard the owner, has ensured that the house has everything that one would need, even items for a beach holiday. We had the pleasure of using the buckets, spades, chairs, beach umbrellas,nets, etc with only one stipulation "to leave them in good order on our departure". The house also has the added benefit of Wifi & Satellite TV with UK channels. We loved the quietness of the area. The girls throughly enjoyed the large garden and we all loved the pool which had the added bonus of pool toys & floaters. This part of Portugal is "undiscovered" . The many beaches are stunning and clean. One can enjoy it without the hordes of tourists. We loved the culture of Portugal. We visited all the spots recommended by the owner and particularly loved the Obidos lagoon. Obidos town itself is a gem. We enjoyed it so much and walked the around the town on numerous occasions during our stay. We were also able to visit Lisbon as well, as we stayed for a full 2 weeks in Obidos. A previous negative view of the house was mean spirited and totally unnecessary in my opinion. The house is lovely and a home away from home. Our stay was totally relaxing and we created pricless memories here. We absolutely loved our stay in your home & would defintely recommend it to explore this beautiful part of Portugal.
