About the property

Accomodation for 8 people with four bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 kitchens

A charming renovated old house (ca 225 m2), with large pool, pergola and walled gardens. The house is situated on the outskirts of a quiet village with views over Lagoa de Obidos (one of the largest European lagoons) all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. Nearby is the medieval town of Obidos about 80 km north of Lisbon (50-60 mins on the motorway). There is a large garden with orange, lemon, avocado, pecan, plum, mulberry trees and vines.

Accomodation is for 8 people with four bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 kitchens and a large common area (90 m2). By closing a door, two separate units can be created. Each unit contains 2 bedrooms, one bathroom, one kitchen and a common area, thus making it suitable for two families to share.

There is a dishwasher, fridge-freezer, all kitchen utensils, microwave, satellite-TV, DVD, CD player, free WiFI and all bed-linens and towels are supplied.

There is a separate utility room for the washing machine and cots and high chairs for children are also available.

In the village there is a mini-market and two cafés plus a restaurant at Rio do Prado, just a 2 minute walk, which serves traditional Portuguese tapas. A number of golf courses are within 5-7 km (eg Praia del Rey, one of Europe´s best courses).

For those interested in nature and the environment there are nature trails along the lagoon, which is a protected area. The trails start just outside the house and it is possible to pick mussels or windsurf on the lagoon. The Atlantic coast (approx 8 km) is regarded as one of the world´s best surfing areas.

For the historically/culturally interested, visit the ancient walled city of Obidos, the beautiful monastery at Alcobaca or the convent at Batalha.

You can also try a small wine tour of the surrounding vineyards.

Great house and beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This big house is located at the very end of a small rural village with great views over the lagoon. All around are orange trees, lemon trees, apple trees and vineyards.

It has a big kitchen (actually two) with everything you need. The weather was great during our stay but if not there's a i big living room space with TV and DVD player.

The kids especially enjoyed the heated pool and there's an outdoor shower.

We had some issues with the shower head but the manager was there the same day and fixed it right away.

Highly recommended!

Big house perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

This property is a true gem. It's close enough to everything you might want to see and do, still a short trip away from the touristic hotspots. You can live like a villager and stroll up to the local cafe for your daily bread or take the car 10 mins to the medieval village of Obidos with daily shows and and loads of restaurants. We stayed 2 families with 2 kids each and the layout of the house was perfect. There's even a second smaller kitchen in the upper house if you want more privacy. The pool area is great with heated water and relaxing areas both in the shadow (under roof) and in the sun. We usually spent half the day in the pool and the other half by one of the amazing beaches nearby. For sport activities there are running and biking trails all around the lagoon and there's also a wind- and kitesurfing opportunities there. An extra plus for the super cool design eco hotel and restaurant just across the street called Rio do Prado. They serve great food and amazing drinks. We will definately be back!

Underbart hus i lugna Arelho

  • 5 of 5

Jag har bott i huset flera somrar. Det är rymligt, med plats för till exempel två barnfamiljer. Fin trädgård och en behaglig poolplats gör att det är lätt att tillbringa en hel dag i huset. Vill man göra utflykter finns det stora möjligheter. Såväl Lissabon som Coimbra är möjliga mål för dagsutflykter. Medeltidsstaden Obidos ligger 10 minuter bort med bil. För den som är intresserad av vågsurfning, löpning eller landsvägscykling är förhållandena idealiska. Jag rekommenderar huset till alla som vill uppleva denna trivsamma och avslappnade del av Portugal.

Perfekt för familjer, natur- och golfälskare!

  • 5 of 5

Ett hus med underbar atmosfär, en fantastisk trädgård och närhet till natur, bad, surfing och golf i världsklass. Funkar utmärkt för två familjer, med gott om privata och gemensamma ytor.
