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.

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.

We had great weather so were able to take full advantage of the comfortable deck chairs and very refreshing pool. The kitchen was very well equipped, and the local restaurants were also lovely - a highlight was watching the sunset while we ate one night at the nearby hotel! The sofas and beds were very comfortable, and there were plenty of board games, books and even an Xbox in the house for entertainment. The golf course and beach were both very near by and well worth a visit. I would definitely recommend a holiday here!

Great to know where you're going second time round as it takes all the stress out of knowing what you're going to get. Villa very clean and still very well equipped. Very quick response from owners any time you need to check anything. Would happily visit again in the future.
