Casa Dos Moinhos is tastefully decorated and designed equipped to a very high standard. Located as it does just south west of Obidos, the villa is within walking distance of all the amenities. The nearest beach is a mere 5 miles away at Foz do Arelho whilst surfing beaches at Peniche are just 15 minutes away. There are several supermarkets, banks, loads of restaurants and plenty of shops just minutes away in Caldas da Rainha. The front of the villa has a modern stylized garden that leads to the main entrance. The rooms are all spacious and ideally laid out with a well equipped, bright airy kitchen that seamlessly connects to the rest of the house. The lounge, that faces out onto the front garden gets plenty of natural light through two large French windows with a dining area for 8 to the far side for those sumptuous meals enjoyed with friends and family. There are also some fine restaurants serving international cuisine in the heart of Obidos.
Other Facilities: Just outside the kitchen towards the front of the villa is a little patio that is absolutely ideal for taking breakfast and tea al fresco whilst you enjoy the superb morning and evening sunshine. The other outside area that is really inviting is the pool area. The lovely private pool to the rear of the villa has ample room for 8 loungers and seating room for at least 6 others and is very secure and private.
To one end of the pool facing the setting sun, is the traditional Portuguese style brick BBQ that serves as the perfect place to enjoy an evening meal and companionship of friends and family late into the night.
Attractions & activities: For the younger crowd, the town of Foz do Arelho sports the area’s largest and best know night club 'Greenhill', whilst further up the coast in the town of Nazare you will find a vibrant night life of fine restaurants, cafés and bars.
The renowned towns of Fatima, Alcobaca, Bathlha and Tomar are all about an hour’s drive north from the villa and are most enjoyable for their architecture and colourful history. Fatima houses the world’s third most holy Catholic shrine and Basilica after St Peter’s in the Vatican and Lourdes in France.
Tomar has a magnificent old Templar fortress on the hill surrounded by acres of terraced gardens, natural springs and orange groves.
