About anita kapila

I am a 42 year old dentist with a keen interest in property. I live in England with my husband and 5 year old son Dylan and daughter Sienna who is coming up to 1 yrs old. I have travelled many places far and wide including Malaysia, Bali Jamaica, Seychelles, Mauritius, America, Greece and Egypt.

anita kapila purchased this chalet in 2006

Why anita kapila chose Casais do Rio

My main reasons for investing in Portugal was wanting a holiday home which I could go to at a drop of a hat. With just overa two hour flight, no time difference, year round sunshine and budget flights it seemed ideal. Technicalities besides, having just visited Obidos for the first time I feel like I have picked a gem! I found the Portuguese people to be so pleasant and helpful and we weren't hassled by people wanting to sell us things, so refreshing compared to my previous trips abroad. The weather for September was glorious, reaching the late 20s and we missed the summer rush which added to the tranquility and beauty. I fell in love with Obidos, tried ginjha (which was gorgeous!) and was gutted that we didn't have time to do any wine tasting. There is something here for everyone! Enjoy!

What makes this chalet unique

The villa boasts curb appeal and privacy at the same time The steps leading up to the property and surrounding wall give it a majestic presence. As we are set above road level, the swimming pool is not overlooked so sunbathing and use of the pool can be done in complete privacy. We provide a wide range of pool toys,Xbox, WiFi, IPod dock,selection of herbs and Indian spices for those guests that enjoy cooking like us!

Wow, what a villa

  • 5 of 5

A stunning villa on the best plot in the road. Very private as a mature hedge surrounds pretty much all of the gardens.

Beautifully clean - looked brand new! Well thought out design. Lots of space both indoors and out. Pool is ideal size for a small family and is approx 3ft deep at the shallow end and just 5ft deep at its deepest - some pool toys are provided. Grass regularly cut and well maintained and the pool was kept clean. Local bakers deliver fresh bread/rolls/cakes etc at approx. 10am each day - listen out for the siren on the van - you cant miss it.

Locally, the lagoon is the place that most people go to. Kayaking, pedalo's, wind-surfing available to hire as well as bikes for those that fancy it. There's a nice cafe/restaurant next to the hire centre.

Several restaurants in the near vicinity but a car is a must if you want to travel further afield.

Nice waterpark in Peniche (25-30 min drive) as well as surfing. Plenty of lovely golf courses within a few miles together with non- busy beaches but be careful of the current on windy days. Ancient Obidos is worth a visit - approx. 20 mins drive - the nearest supermarket is located here too.

Overall, a lovely holiday at a beautiful villa. Was a pleasure to stay there and a pleasure to deal with the owner - Thanks Anita.

Quiet, Clean and Spacious

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at this villa. Great location by the lagoon which has a lovely safe beach area and then just over the sand bank you get the Atlantic waves crashing on the beach. It was really warm but there was always a breeze which took the edge off. Obidos is a lovely spot as was Peniche. The villa was cool and clean and having a pool was great when getting back from a day out to relax around.

A lovely family villa

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fortnights holiday in this well presented villa.

On arrival there was a welcome basket and the villa was very modern, spacious and well equipped. All rooms had air conditioning and the gardens and pool were maintained throughout our stay.

The villa is situated on a quiet development in Perola da Lagoa. A five minute walk took you to a path around the Lagoon. Twenty minutes walk to a watersportos at the edge of the lagoon with a great cafe/ restaurant serving snacks and meals.We spent a couple of afternoons canoeing and kayaking.

Walking 20 minutes (drive 5 mins) in the other direction took you to Bom Successo Beach which was stunning. We ate at Edgar's several times in the evenings which we can highly recommend.

Obidos was a twenty minute drive. Plenty of restaurants to choose from.

Plenty of beaches a short drive away - all beautiful.

We visited Peniche, Sintra, Nazare and Sao Martino. A lovely part of the world that we will definitely return to for another holiday.

Lovely Villa in a Quiet Development

  • 5 of 5

We had a great fortnight's stay in a well appointed villa in relatively new development in Perola do Lagoa.

The villa was well equiped and very clean when we arrived and a welcome basket provided. Everything we need for cooking was in the kitchen. The bread van came every day and the children were sent out for fresh bread every morning. There's a good supermarket in Obidos about 20 minutes drive away. BBQ'd on a few nights too.

We ate out a few times in Obidos and at Edgars at Bom Sucesso beach; but there are lots of other places and plenty of recommendations are provided in the villa.

We went to Obidos for the medieval fair - a very pretty village. Also enjoyed the farmers market in Caldas da Rainha. In the evenings we wandered down to the lagoon for a walk round the shore then back to the villa to sit on the balcony terrace and look out at the view.

Spent a couple of afternoons canoeing and paddleboarding on the lagoon from a beach near the villa.

Best parts were the great beaches nearby. Quiet and sheltered ones on the lagoon, big waves and bodyboarding at the ones on the coast. Our favourite was at Praia dE'l Rei about 15 minutes drive away.

Driving was no problem; the motorway from Lisbon airport to Caldas da Rainha was fairly empty once you got outside of the city.

Car: necessary


Within 5-10 mins drive from a number of beautiful beaches. The sand is soft and golden and the shorelines are unspoilt. The closest is the lagoon which is calm and surrounded by stunning woodland and a purpose built cycling track, ideal for cyclists but great for picnics, walks, sailing, windsurfing, water skiing and kite surfing. Bom successo beach is a 5 min drive as is Praia d'el Rey (Marriott hotel). Peniche and Baleal (20 mins drive) provide the best surfing in Portugal.


The villa is situated 72km from Lisbon airport which is less than an hour by car (transfers by taxi will cost around 95 euros). Porto airport is a 2.5 hr car journey. Car hire is essential and the best way to get around. This should be booked in advance from Lisbon. Lisbon airport does have the car rental firms on site as well.


Praia D'el Rey (10 min) golf, tennis, restaurant and spa.

Caldas Da Rainha (15 min) bowling, shops, cafes, ceramic museum, fruit markets. Was originally a Spa town for royalty.

Peniche 20 minutes seafood, surfing capital, water park, scuba diving.

Bombarreal 15 minutes go-carting and wine tasting tours.

Lisbon 1 hour. Belem tower, restaurants, museums, tours, nightlife.

Further Details:

Obidos town is a must to visit and is a 10 min drive. It is a beautiful town lined by medieval walls, cobbled streets, souvenir shops, restaurants and cafes. Obidos castle was voted one of the 7 wonders of Portugal. Try visiting it after dusk when the moonlight gives it a more romantic feel. It will be hard to miss the stalls which offer the local cherry liqueur (ginjha ) served in chocolate cups.

There are a number of banks, ATM machines and supermarkets (supermercado) which can be found in Obidos and Caldas da Rainha. The supermarket of preference is Pingo Doce which is located just outside Obidos on the way back to the villa.

Obidos is the host of a number of events and festivals throughout the year. These include the International Chocolate Festival (March), Holy week (April), Medieval Fair (July), Contemporary Art Month and Classical Music Month (May). This holiday would appeal to lovers of golf, nature, sunbathing,watersports,fishing,photography, seafood, wine, culture, history, peace, tranquility, horseriding to name but a few. Families of all ages, couples, groups of friends can experience a more relaxed less commercial holiday and appreciate Portugal as it really is.
