About Gary Brant
Living in the south of England just outside Brighton and had dreamed of owning a holiday home with easy access to it via a major airport like Lisbon from London Gatwick. We stay in the villa as much as we can . The area of Obidos Lagoon we choose because it was an easy drive, comfortably with in an hour of the airport in an unspoilt uncrowded part of the Silvercoast where there are strict controls on further planing development and surrounded by natural forest. The newly built and furnished villa built in 2009 is well proportioned having air-conditioning private pool and garden and private off road parking for 2 vechiles and we felt suited us ideally and the area has plenty to see and do and we fine we always receive a warm welcome from the locals.
Gary Brant purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Gary Brant chose Casalinho
I purchased this detached new Villa in late 2009 and newly furnished it because I though the accomadation was ideal for the family with 3 bedrooms large private balconys 3 bathrooms having air conditioning, & Free wi-fi ,private swiming pool in own garden and private off road parking for at least 2 vechiles .The area I felt was ideal being situated within a easy walk of the largest natural lagoon in Portugal with blue flag large sandy beaches and being unspoilt surrounded by a nature reserve and forest in a quiet situation and yet a short drive of amenities and lots to do such as swiming surfing sailing, bike riding and horse riding aswell as golf at many of major golf courses and there are many places of interest such as the medieval walled town of Obidos & fishing village of Peniche.
What makes this Villa unique
I love staying at the villa as its situated in a quite situation within less than 10 minutes easy walking distance of and sandy beaches the Lagoon with loads to do or we can just relax with no hassle and benefits from air-conditioning & Free Wi-Fi and yet the villa a short drive of amenities. The property is surrounded by a nature reserve & forest and there are many walks and bike paths locally. I provide Beach Towels and Sun Unbrella Table and 6 chairs for alfresco dining and 6 Sun Loungers. The Detached Villa is situated 10minutes drive of major golf courses such as the opened Royal Obidos golf course along with the Bom Sucesso and Playa del Rey and West Cliffs would suite a golf enthusiast. 2 of which are a 5 Minute drive away.

Spacious and peaceful place
First of all, the communication and instructions given by the owner was a charm.
The house is new and well equipped, the private pool is a plus so we enjoyed our stay very, very much.
A complete manual is provided with helpful informations, the air conditioning is working well. I would suggest to go grocery shopping before your stay since it is about 20 minutes away.
3 days is not enough to enjoy this wonderful region. The beaches are endless and more deserted than in the Algarve. You must visit Obidos and Peniche ( eat at Profresco restaurant).
We would come back to this place for at least 5-7 days instead of the Algarve!
Thank you Gary for everything,
Céline and Michel, Canada
Hi Celine and Michel,
Thank you again for choosing my villa for staying in a short stay whilst touring Portugal .I was very glad you enjoyed your stay and met your expectations with my directions being clear and easy to understand and the communications good . I am pleased you find imformation file of help and found my home spacious and peaceful with access to large sandy beaches close by . I hope to be able to welcome you back ,as you have mentioned ,one day to enjoy a longer stay .
It was a pleasure to have you stay and thankyou again for making my life easy when communicating with you both .
Gorgeous spacious villa. Peaceful locality.
The villa was really large and modern with gorgeous ensuite bathrooms. The garden was large and the pool was lovely and cleaned regularly. Gary was really helpful and gave great directions to the villa which took us about 1.2 hours from Lisbon.
The complex is very quiet and not fully occupied so there was no noise disturbance. We slept like logs in the comfy beds.
Bom Successa beach was just 5mins drive away and the lake just a 5 minute walk. Peniche, for the keen surfers a 30 minute drive. The nearest supermarket was good and reasonably priced (20mi drive).
The nearest medieval town of Obidos was really quirky and has some gorgeous little craft shops. Try the local Ginja (cherry brandy) in a little chocolate cup- sold along the walking street-yum yum!
Book in advance for the closet couple of restaurants as these book out fast.
The little water park near peniche is a nice half day out for kids.
Western Portugal is much less touristy. The upside of this being much cheaper plenty of nice spots to grab on the beach etc. The downside is there is less choice of restaurants and shops nearby but we went to relax so we were very content indeed. Our kids loved swimming in the lagoon at the beach and jumping in and out of the pool.
Portuguese local wine and bread is so cheap and divine! Don't get me started on the avocados and €9.99 big boxes of huge fresh prawns you can buy at the local supermarket! Enjoy!
Thankyou again for choosing to stay in my home for you holiday and taking the trouble to review your stay. I was was pleased to hear that the peaceful restful situation met your requirements and all the family enjoyed the combination of private pool at the same time large beach and lagoon in walking distance;at the same time enjoyed visiting the walled cobbled streets of Obidos at the same time the other places such as Peniche.
Thank you for also commenting on the spaciousness but most importantly the cleanliness of the villa and I will also pay the compliment to Cara whom manages my villa and makes certain it is looked after and kept to a high standard that is imperative as far as I am concerned.
In a relatively short time you appear to have found what I enjoy most when visiting my villa that the locals are very friendly and and the cost of living is very reasonable compared to what we are use to in the .U.K.therefore we tend to get very good value for money by way of our holiday enjoyment.
I hope to welcome you once more to stay in my home in the years to come .
Finally thankyou for commenting that you found me very helpful and the directions to the villa were good . I like to make all guest as welcome as I possible can and make the last part of the journey to my home as stress free as possible when may be you and the children will be possible tired.
Fabulous villa, great management and owner.
The villa was clean, well equipped and in a great location for beaches and towns. We enjoyed the historic town of Obidos and nearby Caldas De Rainha for shopping and a takeaway.
We mainly ate in and found the villa and found it to have everything we need. Property manager upgraded the balcony door locks for our children and made them much more secure which was brilliant. Also replaced a mixer tap that was broken at the same time. Great villa, kids loved it, peaceful location.Thank you, Gary for a great stay in your villa and Claire for all your help.
Thank you for your review and i am very glad the villa met your expectations.I was sorry naturally to have found the small problems you mentioned such as the control on the shower/bath mixer tap had not been mentioned before to us or spotted but that they were corrected speedily very early into your stay .I am very pleased to hear you and your children loved the villa and peaceful location. I am glad your stay was memorable and hope to welcome you back in the future .
Excellent base for silver coast
No hesitation recommending the villa which had everything you would need-,the English speaking tv channels were a bonus for the World Cup coverage !! Gary was really helpful at all stages in the process. We had been to the Algarve before but this was our first time in this part of Portugal and we really liked it. With the age of our children we gravitated towards the beaches which were stunning. Rio Cortico beach, a five minute drive away, is quiet even in mid July. Most on the beach are locals and a five minute walk down the beach leaves you in splendid isolation. Baleal beach is 20 minutes away by car and is fantastic- full of life with people of all ages enjoying the surfing, swimming and restaurants. ‘O Febras ‘ restaurant at the Baleal Co-Op opposite the beach was a great recommendation- an innocuous looking restaurant with beautiful , huge, fresh grilled sea bass for €9.90. Our extended family did surf lessons on the beach and we loved it. The villa is within easy reach of the walled town of Óbidos, a UNESCO heritage site, and we were lucky to be there for the annual medieval festival. The villa’s location is rural so you will need a car to get to all places bar the headland at the end of the lagoon which is a 25 minute stroll away. There are a few well priced cafes and restaurants there. Breakfast in Bica da Lagoa was great value (65c for great coffee!) and the Rio Cortico restaurant at the top of the headland had some great fish dishes. The N’aldeia restaurant was also (generally) good. Note that the restaurants are a little out of the way and inventory is kept necessarily tight so they sell what’s available and fresh until they run out! There is also a baker who drives around the lagoon each morning selling freshly baked bread, which was great. So, in summary: the house is perfect, the area is lovely (although we know we only scratched the surface in terms of sights), the area is far less touristy than the Algarve and therefore eating out is much cheaper. Ps: the weather was mixed for the two weeks. I suspect this is unusual for this time of year but it definitely doesn’t get as hot here as it would further south (which would be a positive for many )
I am glad you all had a most enjoyable stay in my villa even though the weather was not quite as good as one would normally expect at this time of year .I make every effort to make my home very much a home from home and i am glad you found it met your requirements with a great deal of natural forest surround the area large unspoilt beaches and very reasonable cafes and restaurants at the mouth of Obidos Lagoon which is the largest natural lagoon in Portugal .I also find the locals very freindly andspeak English well as they learn it as a second language. Thanks again for choosing my villa to stay in and i hope to be able to wake you again in the future .
The property was ideal and the area was quiet and peaceful
Four of us stayed in the villa from May 19th.The property was clean and spacious and could comfortably accommodate an extra two people. The pool was of a good size and the gardens were well kept.The owner made sure that all the arrangements went smoothly and was available to answer any questions. The area was quiet, the lagoon was beautiful and there were some great surfing beaches nearby. Obidos and Fatima are both worth visiting and we also enjoyed a day in Lisbon. Nazarre has a great beach and is more of a traditional seaside resort.There are no shops near the property so be prepared to travel to the nearest supermarket. Overall we had an excellent holiday in a very interesting area.
Hi, Thankyou for your kind review and the comments contained there in and that you found the villa clean and well presented in a quiet peaceful position and liked the general area having had an excellent opportunity.I appreciate that the supermarket is a drive away and i was not sure whether you found the local shop in Vau village or in Bom Sucesso but generally the main supermarket offers a good variety of choice .
Thanks again for choosing my home to stay in and you would be welcome to stay again in the future.
Fabulous Villa ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Great Villa, plenty of space, air con & rooms. We spent 5 nights here as a group of 5 adults. Close to some superb Golf Courses & Beaches. Gary was a great host, always available for any info and happily extended our 3night stay to 5 nights with ease.
The Pool isn't heated but after a few hours with the sun out it was fine to use.
