The Costa de Prata region: The Silver Coast is renowned for it's unspoilt coastline and excellent golf courses. Only 5 minutes drive from the villa are two world class golf courses Praia D'El Rey and Bom Sucesso. The villa is equipped with two full sets of golf clubs for the use of guests.

As well as the beaches at the lagoon and Bom Sucesso nearby, you can find more about 5 minutes drive away at Praia do Mar. Further afield are beaches at Foz do Arelho on the opposite side of the lagoon, Baleal, Peniche, Sao Martinho do Porto and Nazare. All are very picturesque and ideal for family trips as well as attracting enthusiastic surfers. Peniche and Lourinha also have water parks. For birdwatching, catch the boat from Peniche to the national bird sanctuary and nature reserve of the Berlengas Islands.

The region has many places of historic interest, including Fatima, the university town of Coimbra, and the monasteries at Batalha and Alcobaca.

Obidos: The beautifully preserved medieval walled town of Obidos is about 10 minutes drive away. This is a 'must see' place to visit during your holiday. The town is lovely with narrow cobblestone streets full of whitewashed houses with blue or yellow borders, flower-laden window boxes and terracotta roofs. From the town walls there are marvellous views of the town, castle, Roman ruins and surrounding countryside. There are a good choice of restaurants, cafes and bars, and gift shops selling local handicrafts. You can also try the local Ginja liquer. The town hosts cultural events throughout the year including an opera festival in August, a medieval festival in July and a delicious chocolate festival in March.

How to get there: The closest airport is Lisbon International; an easy drive of less than 1 hour along good motorways, and a short drive of smaller well marked roads at the end of the journey. Alternatively, the villa can be reached from Porto airport with a journey time of 2.5 hours.

A car is essential both for getting to the villa and to visit the many places of interest on this very picturesque part of the Silver Coast. Lisbon Airport has all major car rental firms on site.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fine week in Obidos. The house is a very good place to be with a swimming pool which made the children more than happy. The weather was great and hot. If you are very fond of ancient walls make a break in Batalha, Alcobaca and Tomar. Lisbon is not very far away (less than one hour) and Sintra plus Cascais are wonderful.

sehr schönes Haus in ruhiger Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

wir verbrachten eine sehr entspannte Woche in dem Ferienhaus von Angela und Colin Hand - es ist geräumig, modern eingerichtet und mit allem ausgestattet, was man braucht. und: es entsprach genau der Beschreibung. Der Garten ist sehr schön und gepflegt, selbst den Grill haben wir noch genutzt, obwohl es abends schon sehr kühl wurde. Jetzt - nach Ende der Ferienzeit - gab es allerdings nur wenige Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, auch nur wenige Restaurants in der unmittelbaren Umgebung. Ein Auto ist deshalb unverzichtbar.

Wir können einen Aufenthalt jedoch uneingeschränkt empfehlen.

It was really worth it...

  • 5 of 5

We spent a beautiful week in Villa in May 2015. The villa is really nice and furnished with good taste. There are a fully equipped kitchen,spacious bedrooms and nice living room. The owners were very helpful, was provided lots of information about stay and thinks to do. Beautiful surrounding with many nice places to visit.

It was our fourth visit in Portugal/Spain but I think it was the best one. Kids loved the pool and I strongly recommend the villa as quiet, comfortable place to rest.

Car: necessary

This beautiful contemporary villa (completed in 2009, villa size 230 square metres) is located within Pinhal Village, Bom Sucesso, a peaceful setting of stunning natural beauty on the edge of Obidos Lagoon. This is an ideal location for a golfing holiday; only 5 minutes drive away are three excellent golf courses at Royal Obidos, Praia del Rey and Bom Sucesso in beautiful settings all with excellent facilities including lessons, restaurants, pro shops and clubhouses.

Royal Obidos is the newest golf course, and is wonderful to play on with stunning ocean views and long fairways. It is a par 72 championship course designed by Severiano Ballesteros.

At Praia Del Rey you can play golf while taking in fantastic ocean views, on a par 73 championship course which hosted the Portuguese Open and was rated 13th best course in Europe by Golf World magazine.

The excellent par 72 course at Bom Sucesso (opened in 2008) has beautiful views of woodland and the lagoon as well as many other leisure activities.

Real and Golden Eagle golf courses are around 30 minutes drive away on good motorways.

There are two sets of golf clubs at the villa for the use of guests. Campo

The location of the villa is also perfect for a family holiday or for watersports enthusiasts due to the many EU blue flag beaches around the area, and activities such as surfing, sailing, kite surfing, stand up paddling and windsurfing. There is a sailing school on the lagoon.

Within 5 minutes walk from the villa, there is a cycle track and beach on the lagoon and many walks nearby with fantastic views of the lagoon, beaches, pine and eucalyptus woodland and cliff-tops.

There are tennis courts for hire and lessons at Praia Del Rey & Bom Sucesso.

Both Praia Del Rey and Bom Sucesso offer a wide range of other leisure and health facilities.

Alternatively, you can relax around the private pool in the south-facing garden at the villa. The mild climate with all year round sunshine makes this a perfect holiday destination. In the summer the heat is refreshed by a gentle sea breeze.

A short drive away is the very picturesque historic walled town of Obidos with many festivals throughout the year, shops selling quality local handicrafts such as ceramics and embroideries, restaurants, beautiful churches and quiet cobbled streets to walk through with lovely views across the countryside.

Further afield, there are many beautiful places of interest to visit, for example the castles and palaces of Sintra, the city of Lisbon and Mafra Palace are just some of the famous tourist attractions.
