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.

Flights to Obidos, Portugal

Porto International Airport (OPO) and Lisbon Airport (LIS) are both within an hour of a holiday rental in Obidos. Twenty British airports connect to both of these airports, so there is no shortage of cheap flights to Obidos.

A fantastic relaxing holiday, in a beautiful location

5 of 5
The house was lovely, exactly as shown on the pictures. The position was good, sunshine on the pool and garden all day, great for the lazy afternoons we spent around the pool. The house was clean on arrival and the pool was cleaned both mondays that we were there. The area is beautiful, although a car is essential, we had many days out within a 20-30 minute drive to some of the most beautiful beaches, rio cortico about 5 minutes away is a beautiful cove and well worth a visit in the evening when it's quiet to watch the sunset. San Martinho about 30 minutes north a lovely sheltered beach with an inflatable assault course on the water, our teenage children loved it. Baleal beach near to péniche was fantastic, a bit of a surfers town,we hired body boards and wetsuits, the water can be pretty cold, was great fun. We had a few days at the lagoon paddle boarding and kayaking, only 5 mins down the road and the restaurant there is great value for money. The medieval festival in obidos was a great evening out. But id also recommend visiting in the daytime and walk around the castle walls....wear decent footwear. Plenty to do in the area especially for us with teenage children. Finally, from booking, Gary the owner has been incredibly helpful, he immediately responds emails, I have sent a few since I booked, and provides as much information and help as he can. The security deposit was refunded without a problem. I have no hesitation in recommending this villa, it really is in a beautiful place, but you need to be happy to drive a little. Thanks Gary for renting it out to us. Just one minor suggestion, if a pool net had been provided, we would havehappily kept on top of it.
