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.
