Make a holiday rental house or villa in Obidos, Portugal your home away from home

Obidos is a beautifully preserved medieval town on the Costa de Prata, Leiria. The whole town has been declared a national monument in Portugal, and whilst the town defies belief due to the extraordinary wealth of magnificent medieval buildings, it has a great Portuguese atmosphere. A holiday in Obidos is a perfect place for a romantic getaway, with cobbled streets lined by colourfully tiled whitewashed houses and churches.

Things to do in Obidos, Portugal

A holiday rental in Obidos is ideal for those with even a fleeting interest in medieval history. The Medieval Fair in July brings visitors from across the globe, offering a real sample of the Middle Ages, from the theatrical productions to the medieval music. Knights and witches can be found wandering the streets late into the evening. The International Chocolate Festival in November may seem more attractive to some, when huge chocolate sculptures adorn the streets.

At any time of year, the fantastic architecture which dominates the streets is a huge draw. The main square, Praca de Santa Maria, surrounds a beautiful 15th century fountain. This is the best place to start investigating this magnificent town when you arrive at your self catering Obidos holiday rental, as many of the most interesting features of the town encircle the square. Walking around the walls, your eye is drawn to the windmills, vineyards and countryside which surround the town.

A holiday rental villa in Obidos is perfectly situated to take advantage of some of the best golf courses along the Costa de Prata and the glorious beaches of the coast.

Places to go on holiday in Obidos, Portugal

Peniche, just west of Obidos is a beautiful fishing village which is home to some of the best seafood restaurants in the area. If you are looking for a boat to the Berlenda Islands, which makes an excellent day trip from a villa in Obidos, trips leave from Peniche, taking around an hour. These islands are uninhabited, reserved only for bird life. Small boats can be hired for exploration of the rocky coastline, dotted with coves, reefs and caves.

Weather in Obidos, Portugal

The Costa de Prata bathes in beautiful sunshine from May until late October, with average temperatures of over 20˚C. Winters are very mild, staying above 10˚C almost all the time.

The house is really clean, well equipped and beautifully located. Although the house is walking distance to the beach, the pool at the house is absolutely amazing. One of the great perks of the property that I personally enjoyed, was having a gym. Overall I would recommend this vacation home for anyone, a couple, family or friends gateaway. I am really looking forward to go back there sometime soon!

You need a car to appreciate the area, but area around the villa is really tranquil and we stayed put most of the time. No noise at all and very family friendly.

It is set in a quiet, beautifully maintained complex and the house itself is spacious, very tastefully furnished and well equipped. A perfect place to spend a holiday even out of season, we spent some very cosy evenings in front of the log burner in the comfortable lounge. We were very fortunate with the weather considering the time of year - temperatures reaching 22 degrees on some days. This allowed us to spend time exploring this fascinating area. Debbie's guidebook is really useful for ideas. Within about an hours drive there are numerous interesting towns, both on the coast and inland. We loved Nazare, where we watched fishermen mending their nets and women putting fish out to dry by the sea. Another favourite was Alcobaca, with its impressive monastery and excellent cafes selling delicious cakes in a beautiful setting. Obidos is a nearby town not to be missed. We enjoyed a wonderful meal in a restaurant there - unfortunately I can't remember its name but it is featured in Debbie's guidebook. Having never visted Lisbon, we were pleased to be told by Olga, the very helpful property manager, that we could get there by bus from Obidos. It was just an hours journey and well worth the trip. We had several hours to have lunch and explore the city. In all, we had a wonderful holiday and we would not hesitate in recommending this property to anyone looking for accommodation in the area.
