|Minimum Stay||1 - 7 nights|
A beautifully well presented, generously proportioned, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom detached villa finished to a high standard with its own swimming pool, garage and landscaped private garden all set in beautiful surroundings.
Pinhal Village is located in Perola da Lagoa on the south western corner of the Obidos Lagoon, on Portugal's Silver Coast. It is just 50 minutes drive from the cool and sophisticated capital Lisbon and within easy reach of great amenities, atmospheric Medieval towns, authentic fishing villages, stunning scenery and world class golfing. The Obidos Lagoon forms a large coastal inlet from the Atlantic offering sheltered swimming for families and great sailing and surfing opportunities. It has the best of both worlds: wild Atlantic vistas of crashing waves and impressive cliffs, coupled with family friendly sandy beaches. The Lagoon is surrounded by a cool green forest nature reserve and is blessed with truly breathtaking views.
Cortico Beach is only a five minute drive/10 minute walk from the villa and has stunning sandy beaches and interesting inlets. The Corsico Seafood Restaurant that perches on the cliff at the point where the Lagoon meets the ocean is stunning. The views from this restaurant are spectacular. Sit on the leather sofas on the decked veranda and enjoy the scenery.
We rented the villa from Nicola for the Easter two weeks this year and it was amazing. Nicola was really great at communicating all the relevant info to us prior to our trip which made arriving that much easier.
The villa is beautiful and has all the little extras that make your holiday special, including a large selection of bikes that are great for runs down to the local cafe (Bica da Lagoa) at Obidos Lagoon (Highly recommended as the food is great and staff are super cool.
The area the villa is located is quite, safe and only 20 minutes from Peniche and Obidos.
The villa has a spacious modern feel and is really homely. All the rooms are large and have nice en-suite bathrooms. The pool and garden area are perfect for the kids to play in and for days in the sun.
I would recommend taking a selection of DVD's as there are no English speaking channels on the TV. There are some DVD's at the villa but we found that with kids, having our own selection meant that movie evenings in where enjoyable.
We found the the beds in the villa to be very hard and this took some time to get used too. My only recommendation to the owners that a investment in some memory foam mattress toppers would make the villa a 5 star stay.
We would defiantly book again.
Thanks to Nicola for a great holiday and for our bottle of anniversary wine on arrival :)

La maison est très bon standing dans laquelle il fait bon vivre. Le jardin avec la piscine sont très agréable également . Il y a tout le confort. Nous avons été plus surpris par le temps car tous les matins Il y avait une brume épaisse qui heureusement se dissipait vers 10 h.

Wander along the castle walls to get a fantastic rooftop view of the town. Visit the many authentic local bars and restaurants scattered along the cobbled streets.

Foz is a 20 minute drive away but well worth a visit. It sits on the other side of the Lagoon. Rustic beach cafes are positioned along the beachside. The views of the estuary from any one of these cafes are spectacular! The atmosphere is chilled and quiet. There are also a couple of fish restaurants on this stretch worth a visit serving the best fresh sea bass, mackerel or sardines. The beach is vast, sandy and great for the children.
The Central Portugal region

The Lagoon is surrounded by a cool green forest nature reserve and is blessed with truly breathtaking views. Close by is the beautiful walled town of Obidos. The town was originally a wedding gift bestowed by the King of Portugal to his new Queen and it certainly feels a very romantic spot. The cobbled streets are packed with bars and restaurants, shops selling local crafts and wines. Idyllic white houses with terracotta roofs, overflowing with vivid flowers are in abundance.
