Lovely villa in a very peaceful village. Spacious, well equipped with quality fixtures and fittings and spotless when we arrived. Loads of useful information also provided. If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing spot with plenty of interest around I don't think you could easily do better.
The villa is perfectly situated just 10 minutes drive from a very safe beach (Sao Martinho) in a lovely bay and not much further if you like waves. Watersports available locally. Inland, the local town Caldas do Rainha has everything you could want and there are loads of historic sites close by: The lovely walled town and castle at Obidos, the churches at Altobaca, Batalha and Fatima are within an hour's drive and just a little further is the fabulous Convento de Cristo, a Templar Castle and Chapel at Tomar - well worthy of it's World Heritage status and a must visit. We also did a day trip down to Lisbon, which is also just an hour away.
Eating out (and in) was very reasonable and there are plenty of places to eat in the local towns.
Also should say that Stuart the letter is extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. I would unhesitatingly recommend this villa
This villa IS as good as it looks - it is huge, well maintained and in a peaceful, un-commercialised location. There is plenty of advice and information on all aspects of life in Portugal in the villa and the owners are very helpful and thorough. We would certainly recommend it to others.
The resorts of Sao Martinho and Nazare are within easy drive, as well as many other beautiful and interesting places. It is only an hour from Lisbon airport.
The beaches are stunning, and so clean. Sao Martinho and Foz do Arelho (lagoon) are perfect for kids - calm, shallow waters and lots of sand castle building material, whilst Nazare and the Atlantic side of Foz are great for surfing. You are never far from a beach bar or a restaurant if that's what you want, but it is possible to get away from the crowd too. The people of the area friendly and helpful, and the supermarkets are well stocked and reasonable - very handy when self catering.
This villa is in a rural area, so car hire is essential. This area really does have it all. This was our second visit and certainly not our last...
We found the villa to be in a very good location for visiting the main beaches at Sao Martinho, Foz do Arelho and Nazare and also the caves at Grutas Mira de Aire. It is also within easy reach of Obidos and many many other interesting places. The location will suit families and couples of all ages although a hire car is a must. This is not a problem in this area as the roads are very quiet and easy to follow.
The villa is very spacious and comfortable. It is well maintained and clean. We all enjoyed the swimming pool and the neighbours were friendly too.
The main supermarkets can be found on the way to the villa at Caldas da Rainha or there is a smaller one in Sao Martinho. The food and wine are excellent and very good prices.
Stuart, the owner, was very helpful throughout the whole process and responded very quickly to any questions raised.
We would certainly recommend this villa to our family and friends.
Excellent property with all ameneties of the highest standard.
It was a pleasure to stay at the villa as everything was provided; towels,bedlinen,garden furniture and all in excellent and clean condition.
The nearby beaches were stunning and lots of villages to visit within a 20 minute drive, Obidos, Nazare , Foz.
For a real relaxation and unwind holiday, this is the place to come to.
The villa is amazing - very clean and luxurious. It has everything you could want for a comfortable holiday - and more! The only improvement would be for the pool to be warmer - which I'm sure it will be later in the summer.
The location is ideal for beaches, and also for sightseeing. However, we had 10 days there, and it was not enough time to see everything - we will just have to go back.
There are some very good restaurants nearby. One we particularly enjoyed was at Sao Martinho - about 10 minutes drive away.
I would certainly recommend this villa to anybody who enjoys staying somewhere quiet with easy access to both towns and beaches.
This is the hidden gem of Portugal - and this house is in the perfect location. Expansive sandy beaches only 5 mins drive. The unique resort of Sao Marino do Porto 10 mins drive. Great restaurants. Safe bathing for children in the sheltered cove. We loved the authentic Portuguese atmosphere in the village of Mouraria. It's not a tourist resort so you just join in with the locals - the village cafe is 1 min walk and they will cook a delicious traditional Portuguese supper (by request). We didn't realise there were so many wonderful World Heritage sites in easy travelling distance - definitely worth visiting Tomar and Alcabasa.
The house is perfect. A lovely sized swimming pool which is in the sun all day - bliss! And inside it feels calm and uncluttered - modern furnishings and all mod cons! A big thumbs up for a perfect holiday in Portugal. We'll definitley be coming back here!
The beauty of the villa location is that it is central to all the important attractions. It is a few minutes drive from the beautiful horse shoe bay of Sao Martinho which boasts on of the finest beaches in the area. It has a narrow outlet to the Atlantic and is therefore very sheltered and safe for all bathers. The beach stretches for miles and so you are guaranteed a place of your own. Foz do Arelho is equally beautiful with its sea water lagoon. It is only 10 kms down the coast and provides shallow safe water for bathing together with large areas of beautiful sand. The historic walled town of Obidos is also only 10 kms away and you can while away a few hours around the narrow winding streets and the fortified walls. Any restaurants you spot on the way round can be logged for sampling later in the evening. Caldas (4kms) is the main town and boasts many fine restaurants together with markets and pedestrianised shopping streets. All the main supermarkets and banks can be found here.
