Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Pinhal - Casa Da Cerca

2 Bedrooms, Private Terrace With BBQ, 3 Bathrooms

This is a beautiful old 'Centenary' house over 3 floors on the walls of Obidos with a romantic story to tell. The house is at the heart of the Medieval Óbidos Town backing onto the walls on the outer side.

One hundred years ago this house used to belong to a very wealthy and locally known landlord from a very traditional family. All properties from this family were painted in pink!

Until today this is the only house allowed to be painted in pink in Óbidos! All other properties are painted in white according to the local rules that are now in place.

The house 'Casa Da Cerca' used to be the home for the Lord's mistress. He visited his lover regularly and arrived by horse from his family house which was a nearby farm (Quinta das Janelas). To avoid been seen by the local people he ordered his employees to build a small path up the hill to the house, away from the main street. That path still exists today, covered with cobblestones. You can see it finishing at the View point (Belvedere) by the house. At that time the ground floor of the house was for the animals and people would live upstairs.

The property retains a romantic charm with its glowing pink walls that contrast with the white buildings that surround it.

The property has 2 bedrooms and a double sofa bed in the lounge so it can sleep 5 comfortably. The 2 bedrooms have 3 single beds in total and both are en-suite. One of the en-suites has a bath with shower over, WC and basin and the other has a shower cubical, WC and basin. There is an additional bathroom on the ground floor with shower cubical.

The sunny and spacious living room has a private terrace outside for dining and sun bathing on the sun loungers. There is a BBQ and umbrella for guests use.

Inside there are two comfortable sofas and a television, an extend-able dining table for up to 8 people and a contemporary kitchen. Should you need it there are also 3 oil filled radiators.

A gem in the beautiful town of Obidos.

There is so much to see and visit in the area that you are spoilt for choice. Obidos is certainly one of the jewels of the region.

We strongly recommend that you to book a day or two to explore the castle and walk the castle walls plus browse the cobbled alleyways steeped in history.

The town itself has a very romantic story to tell as it was a gift to the bride of the King of Portugal.

Enjoy a taste of the excellent, traditional 'Ginjinha d'Obidos' which is a fortified wine and lose yourself in the many good restaurants in the town and surrounding area. Your nearest bar is 'A Ilustre Casa De Ramiro', just a 2 minutes walk away and there are many restaurants dotted all around.

For all budgets you'll enjoy some great Portuguese food in the local restaurants. Visit “Tasca Torta”; 'A Casa Das Senhoras Rainhas'; 'o Caldeirão'; 'Pousada do Castelo'; 'A Ilustre Casa de Ramiro'; 'Poço dos Sabores'; 'Mãe D'Água'; 'Tribeca' and many others...

There are also many festivals held in Obidos which have become famous. The Portuguese travel for miles to these as do many other nationalities more recently. For example you can visit during the following celebrations:

Medieval fair

Chocolate festival

Christmas town

Opera week

Óbidos also has a public pool with excellent facilities for sports and swimming competitions and training.

Outside Obidos a must visit is to the blue Obidos Lagoon. If you like cycling you can go all of the way around the lagoon by bike. There is a good cycle path and there are footpaths along virtually all the banks from Foz do Arelho beach to Bom Sucesso beach.

South of Óbidos there’s Peniche and Baleal and to the north there is São Martinho do Porto and Nazaré. From any of these places enjoy a great day out and plenty of great seafood. Also nearby is the Buddha Eden - 'Garden of Peace', a Zen garden which is highly recommended.

Other ideas for days out include:

Bom Sucesso beach, 15 kms

Praia D’el Rey beach (Vale de Janelas), 16 kms

Foz do Arelho beach, 18 kms

Baleal beach, 22 kms

Go-Karts at Bombarral, 17 kms

NorPark - Nazaré water park, 40 kms

Buddha Eden – Garden of Peace, 15 kms

Berlenga Island natural park (boat from Peniche)
