Fantastic property,comfortable and very well equipped with a lovely pool and outside space. Great location in a village with mini market,cafe and spectacular viewing point.Pleasant walk to Sao Martinho on the boardwalk and beach.Also good location for visits to Foz,Buddah Eden,Caldas and Nazare. Perfect for our holiday and we hope to be back soon.
The villa is exactly as described. It is very clean and well equipped. There is easily enough of everything to cater for 8 + people. The pool is well heated. It is very private. No one seems to live in the properties either side. From the pool area there are uninterrupted views to the hill across the other side of the valley.
There is a nice walk down to Obidos lagoon which is around 1km from the property. But it is reasonably steep in small sections which is fine if you are an averagely fit adult in October when the weather is mild, but bear it in mind in the high season if you have small children with you.
It is easy to get to the local towns and villages but you absolutely must have a car. There is nothing at all near the villa. There are numerous restaurants to be found in picturesque Obidos. The town of Caldas da Rainha is about 10 minutes drive (5km approx). Supermarkets etc can be found in both places.
It is 15 minutes to the nearest beach by car at Foz de Arelho where you can watch the surf and have a drink on the sea front.
Baleal near Peniche, around 30 minutes away, is more chilled and there are a couple of cool beach bars. You can hire surf gear and spend a few hours experiencing what it's like to be inside a washing machine and then get a beer and watch others show you how to do it properly. Sunsets there are amazing.
Sintra is about an hour and a quarter away. Very nice drive through the national park. Upmarket restaurants, castle, palace gardens. Lots of tourists.
Lisbon is an hour. The Oceanarium there is well worth a visit.
Or you can just stay at home and relax by the pool or have a game of pool in the garage.
No one hassles you. Check in was very easy. Ali is friendly and chilled.
Lovely half term break with our ten year old twins.
