About Homewood Family

We had been holidaying here with our family since 2004 and decided to have our own villa built (which was completed in 2010), designing it just as we would want, making it a really comfortable spacious and relaxing 'home from home' (except with better weather and views!). We love the local area; there is so much to see and do, everyone is very friendly, making you feel 'at home' the minute you arrive. Even if it's just the two of us, we never feel we are 'rattling around' and love that moment when we return and first put the key back in the door! Find us on FB,, 07947 438812

Homewood Family purchased this villa in 2010

Why Homewood Family chose Municipality of Óbidos

It is such a pretty area and remarkably still so rural and unspoilt. Even during high season, the beaches are relatively quiet and not at all crowded. Nearby, the old spa market town of Caldas da Rainha is not geared up to tourists and very much the typical local centre, although there are also supermarkets and all the activities at the beach, sailing club, bowling, cinema, karting, historic sites well within very easy reach. We love being able to look out over the valleys, the sea and the castle with hardly an interruption to the view, as well as just wandering about the orchards. It's a real tonic and leaves us all feeling totally relaxed and refreshed.

What makes this villa unique

The villa benefits from Geo-thermal heating and hot water so we have low running costs all year round. This allows us to offer a very competitive rate for the winter season and offers guests underfloor heating as well as a cosy log fire and double glazing, keeping you comfortable whatever the weather! We can offer welcome packs and babysitting services. Let us know too if you are celebrating a birthday or special anniversary

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank the both of you for all your help since booking the holiday, you have been most helpful. The villa was great and we enjoyed our time. Thanks once again.

Perfect.. Can not fault this delightful home... And it really felt like home too.

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous... Plenty of things to do in the home. Really well set up. Highly recommended. Spacious. Jackie and Nick so helpful as were all the other lovely people involved in caring for the home.

Can't image that anyone would not love the place. And the orchard surroundings are an amazing bonus.

Thanks for a great time.

Fantastic villa with great views and a lovely sense of tranquility.

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the pleasure of staying at this fantastic villa. We were quite particular with our requirements (1 family, 6 adults, 3 generations) and it fit the bill perfectly.

The owners Jackie and Nick were extremely helpful with not only the booking process but also the hundreds of questions we asked in the lead up to our stay!

This was our first family holiday with an elderly, less able member for many years and we had a wonderful time.

The villa, whilst quite secluded (lovely and quiet!) was only a very short car journey away from Óbidos itself which had plenty to see and do. We drove 20 minutes to a lovely sandy beach and there are plenty of great golf courses too.

Would thoroughly recommend this villa and would certainly return in a heartbeat!

Great house, amazing views and beautiful region

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 8 (2 families with young adult children) stayed in this lovely house over the Easter period. The house is very well equipped and has a great layout enabling us to be all together, or not, as required. The table-tennis and snooker were very popular. We enjoyed some great walks in the area, and just sitting outside or inside and taking in the fabulous view was a real treat. We liked the location of the house and the fact that it is not in one of the big tourist developments in the region. We would happily go back and thoroughly recommend this property.

A complete break in beautiful house/ location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is simply lovely, everything as described. It is in a stunning position on the top of a hill overlooking Obidos, with lovely range of places to eat. The villa has all you need for a complete break and relaxing time. The pool was well used and a real treat in October. We had a few busy days visiting Sintra, Peniche, the lagoon and Obidos and then took full advtage of the beaches and beautiful walks for complete relaxation. Our hosts were excellent, very helpful , with local recommendations and answered all queries extremely quickly. We have no hesitation recommending this villa very highly.
