Villa Pinhal Guestbook

etienne b.'Nous avons passé de super vacances grace au confort de cette maison, la wii a fait la joie de nos enfants, il ne manquait rien (alarme, coffre fort...) et le propriétaire était toujours disponible au téléphone. A proximité de très jolies villes à découvrir (Obidos, Tomar, Mafra, Sintra,Fatima, Lisbonne, Peniche, Nazaré, grottes,....)il y en a pour tou les gouts et ou les ages. La plage n''est pas loin et les gens très gentils. Nous vous recommandons vivement cette location.'etienne b.

Michel G'Magnifique location au Portugal : maison neuve en parfait état, avec tout le confort désiré. Piscine de petite dimension, mais très agréable. Lotissement de vacances très calme, sans nuisances. Très bien placé au centre du Portugal pour faire les excursions (Lisbonne à 1h d''autoroute, Obidos à 15 mn, Batalha à 30 mn). Propriétaire très accueillant, ayant fait tout son possible pour que le séjour se passe bien. Transaction financière par virement en toute transparence et confiance. Je recommande fortement cette location : c''est la meilleure que j''ai jamais louée.'

jean-michel c.'bonjour, le sejour fût parfait. Le logement spacieux, moderne, bien équipé. Le BBQ idéal pour les parents et la Wii parfaite pour les enfants, avec la nature à proximité. Nous avons regretté 2 choses par contre : - ne pas être resté plus longtemps - que Tim et lisa ne se soient pas occupé aussi de la météo :) blagues à part, on a adoré notre séjour et tout à été fait de la part des proprietaires pour nous le rendre encore plus agréable.

NADINE M.'Nous avons passé d''excellentes vacances dans cette magnifique maison dont le descriptif et les photos sur le site correspondaient tout a fait. Lieu un peu difficile d''accès lorsqu''on ne connaît pas le pays et lorsqu''on est pas véhiculé mais une belle découverte de la nature vaste et riche. Seul points noirs à notre séjour était le manque de connexion wifi pour l''accès à internet qui nous aurait permis de mieux profiter de la ville pour le côté touristique car nous étions un peu perdu et les lunettes des toilettes qui étaient cassées et faisaient donc mal au postérieur a changer si possible. Merci à Tim et Lisa pour leur disponibilité lorsque nous avions besoin.'

About Tim

We are a family of 4 from London.

And this is our only villa.

We have testimonials so have a look in our guestbook.

Tim purchased this villa in 2009

Why Tim chose Casalinho

There are 54 modern, distinctive villas on the estate they are all lovely and they are all pretty much identical. 230m build size, small private pool, detached. Nearly all the villas were bought through a Brighton agency with the sole intension of renting to you. We all communicate and help each other so if we are unable to help we may have a friend that may have vacancies.

What makes this villa unique

We chose villa no 38 because it is south facing and un-overlooked at the rear. It is more sheltered from the August Levant because we are at the lower end of the valley. As with all the other villas we are very close to the lake and the beach village of Praia do Bom Successo where there are sand dunes, the Atlantic and the sheltered waters of the Lagoon. We are situated next to 3 beautiful golf courses. The location makes it a tranquil holiday with easy access to lots of things to do and lots of interesting history and architecture.

Amazing place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa, close to cafés and the beach. The area is just amazing, combines beach, lagoon and forest with lots of footpaths.The villa was very clean and the pool is bigger than what it looks in the pictures. Lots of information about the area was left for us to read and it was very useful. Would love to come back next year!

Thank you very much

Nice villa, very quiet outside season. Be very cautious if asked to pay a deposit as it will not be returned at the end of your stay.

Owner's Response: You didn't return the alarm fob and didn't respond to the email I sent asking for an explanation. I was at the villa the day after you left. Payment was a fixed amount in euros and not GBP. Your subsequent payments were short because of the exchange rate.

las vacaciones perfectas

  • 5 of 5

La casa es impresionante y el trato inmejorable. Cuenta con todas las comodidades, estaba limpia y la piscina preparada para usar. Durante nuestra estancia visitamos la muralla de Óbidos y Nazaré.

Falta un supermercado cerca.

Owner's Response: Gracias Anita para su revisión precioso. Sería bueno tener un supermercado se puede caminar a! Si se queda por más tiempo que se obtiene en la rutina con la que siempre conduce más allá de ping Dolce en Obidos. Para una estancia corta como la suya Estoy seguro de que no es necesario ninguna actividad de conducción adicional para pan, etc. La mayor parte de nuestros ingresos de alquiler es de temporada alta por lo que se puede alquilar por mucho menos en temporada baja. Me alegro de que haya disfrutado de sus vacaciones. Volver de nuevo durante más tiempo. Muchas gracias

Magnifique séjour

  • 4 of 5

Très belle villa tout confort, spacieuse et fonctionnelle. Nous avons apprécié les grandes chambres avec armoires et les 3 salles de bain/douche. Les extérieurs et la piscine sont bien entretenus et le quartier est très calme. La région est vraiment idéale pour découvrir le Portugal. Nous recommandons vivement cette villa!

Fantastische vakantie

  • 4 of 5

Samen met onze 4 tieners hadden we een fantastische vakantie. Mooie grote kamers met elk een mooie badkamer. Heel netjes, en perfecte service van de concierge. De baai is fantastisch voor kindjes. Elke morgen de bakker aan huis met brood en koeken. Mooi stadje Obidos is gemakkelijk te bereiken en de supermarkt heeft dagverse vis aan spotprijs.Echt een plek om tot rust te komen.

Owner's Response: Thank you Serge and your family for your kind words. I remember you had trouble finding the villa, it can be difficult to find! we have the correct coordinates but entering so many numbers can through up a mistake. I's easier now but can you imagine in 2009 when the house was first built as the road didn't exist. It took a whole year before the street had a name. Have a lovely time in Tanzania and be careful. Many Thanks x

The villa is located in a beautiful pine forest set close to a lagoon which filters in from the Atlantic Silver coast. Vast, unspoilt beaches are close by for those who enjoy surfing, bathing or walking. The lagoon itself is a beautiful area for cycling, fishing or long walks. There are also organised boat trips around the lagoon for those who just want to relax and take in the picturesque views. World Class Golf courses are close including The Royal Obidos, Bom Sucesso (both 5 mins) and Praia del Rey (10 mins). The beautiful medieval castle town of Obidos is 20 mins drive away with plenty of restaurants and other facilities. The spa town of Caldas Da Rainha with its daily markets and shops is 25 minutes away.
