About Julian Owens

Hi, my name is Julian. My wife and I are from Northamptonshire and both work full time. Like many people we have always dreamed of having a holiday home in the sun.

We started our adventure of building our modernist dream some six years ago.

After much hard work and saving, it has taken us six years!. I project managed the build and am pleased to say our dream home was finally finished last year.

We still have some landscaping to do, a fruit orchard is currently being planted and the newly planted shrubs will soon be established. We hope the rest of the gardens will all be finished this year.

Julian Owens purchased this house in 2013

Why Julian Owens chose Cela

This is a much loved property. We believe you will feel at home in the spacious luxurious surroundings with the most beautiful views in the valley and surrounding fields. With 4 huge bedrooms, 4 beautifully fitted bathrooms, a state of the art kitchen, a large living and dining areas, huge outdoor space with terraces and a large outdoor pool it's the perfect property for a holiday or a quick escape!

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the location. The house is in a secluded private spot, and yet only 5 minutes drive into the beautiful historic town of Alcobaca with its unique shops & boutiques, restaurants, bars and of course the monastery.

The beaches of Nazare, Salgado and Porto de San Martinho are all within 15-20 minutes drive.

Ideally located for easy access to four of the Silver Coasts best golf clubs.

Stunning countryside splendour

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home in a beautiful countryside setting. Modern, clean, extremely spacious villa with all the mod cons you could need.

The photographs do not do this place justice.

Great first visit to rural Portugal- can't wait to return!

Thank you Julian x

The Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The villa is superbly located for peace and quiet. Perfect setting for relaxing yet such easy access to all the sites.

The six of us had a wonderful vacation. We traveled almost 4,000 km during our 20 days and it was lovely to return home every evening to such comfort. Perfection! Thanks so much Julian - the perfect absentee host!

Fantastic villa, great location, beautifully maintained.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Peach Grove for two weeks in late July, there was a large group of family members. First impressions were that that the pictures on the site were spot on, a very accurate depiction of this fantastic property. The views are also lovely, the villa is flanked by an apple orchard, a small forest and a corn field, so you don't feel overlooked. The rooms are very spacious, with large balconies and the bathrooms are very modern and on arrival, everything was spotless. The kitchen, media room are extremely well equipped, everything is modern and of excellent quality. Outside, the pool area is well thought out, with plenty of room for sunbathing or swimming. The pool is kept at 30 degrees (lovely and warm) and is cleaned weekly. There is a ping pong table, which the kids loved and a barbecue. Franc, who looks after the villa with his wife Celia, is a lovely man, very helpful and willing to go that extra mile to make sure your visit is everything you want it to be. This villa is tremendous, we will be visiting it again in the future and would recommend it wholeheartedly.

Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks staying here in July and had a fantastic time. The villa has everything a family needs, the kitchen is well equipped, the decor is stunning and there is plenty of space as the rooms are huge, the pool was lovely and we were in there every day.

The location is lovely, peaceful and away from it all yet only a short drive to the towns nearby. We enjoyed some lovely day trips and the beaches nearby were lovely.

Would highly recommend this villa and would definitely return another time.

Great Villa even for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

Truely great villa!

From the start everything was perfect. Frank was there to guide us to the villa and show us around. There was even a welcome present for us to enjoy!

We had a great time for 2 weeks with 3 families. The villa has really large rooms and lots of space for everyone.

Villa is brand new and very well equipped. Everything is clean and well-maintained. We did enjoy the table tennis and swimming pool a lot!

Julian was very helpful with our questions and tips about car rentals etc.

Villa is in a pretty good location, you can do day trips to all kinds of nice places like Sintra, Cascais, Nazare and Aveiro. Theres a few nice beaches also nearby in São Martinho do Porto and Foz do Arelho.

The walled city of Óbidos is within 20 minutes drive of the property. A must-see with many markets, stalls and shops, in addition to festive and themed celebrations all-year round. Make sure to check out the Medieval Market held in Óbidos each July and its famous chocolate festival.
