About the property

Three bedrooms sleeping 9. One double & 2 twin bedrooms

Casa das Laranjeiras (Orange Trees) is a modern 3-bedroom villa situated in a quiet development with views to open heathland. It has 2 first floor bedrooms, a double and a twin, each with en suite bath/shower and spacious balcony. On the ground floor is a twin bedroom and a shower room and an open plan living area including kitchen, with plenty of room for 9 people. The villa is cleverly designed and makes excellent use of all available space. Bedrooms have plenty of storage. Patio doors from the living room and the ground floor bedroom lead into the garden which has a terrace, pool, garden furniture and orange trees. The pool that can have the water heated, has an additional cost of € 75.00 / weekly, to hire this service.

You have to go down steps to get to the front door and there are stairs inside the villa which are not suitable for wheelchair users or those who find stairs difficult. For others we hope you will enjoy staying here and exploring the Silver Coast which is not yet well known, and will decide to come back to Casa das Laranjeiras for many years to come.

Casa das Laranjeiras, which has a couple of orange trees in the garden, is a few minutes walk from the shore of the Obidos Lagoon, good for children with its beaches and calm shallow water. There is a water sports centre on the far side of the lagoon where you can windsurf, kayak, or sail.

The centre offers sailing instruction. Walk 5 min to the lagoon, call, and they will collect you. A short drive will take you to the Atlantic coast with miles of beautiful beaches and the best surfing at Baleal and Peniche.

Top class golf courses are at Bom Succeso (5 min drive); Praia D'el Rey (15 mins) and Campo Real (30 min).

There is a walkway round the shore of the lagoon which is ideal for a gentle stroll, a brisk walk or jog, or a cycle ride, or for a spot of fishing or bird watching.

There are several different restaurants within 5-10 minutes drive and others at Bom Successo which is not far away. More information is in a folder in the house.

Obidos, about 20 minutes drive, is a fascinating walled and fortified medieval town which is well worth a visit - a magnificent castle, lovely winding old streets, fascinating shops and a great choice of cafes, bars and restaurants. There is a Pingo Doce supermarket on the outskirts.

Porto Sao Martinho is a delightful resort town which has been a favourite holiday destination for the well-to-do from Lisbon for over 100 years. It has a very pretty scollop-shaped bay, long sandy beach, plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants, and an Intermarche supermarket.which is well signposted.

For military history enthusiasts the Lines of Torres Vedras are about 30-40 minutes drive away. Here in 1809-10 the Duke of Wellington defended Lisbon from the armies of the French Emperor Napolean; but bring your own maps and guide book.

There are restaurants and cafes between the villa and the entrance to the lagoon, about 5 mins drive. Rio Cortico overlooks the mouth of the Lagoon and is recommended.

These are nearest. There are several restaurants at Bom Succeso including one on the beach.. Across the Lagoon are interesting bars and cafes at Foz do Arhelo.

Peniche is a fishing village and has delightful fish restaurants.

A nature reserve borders on part of the Lagoon, and you can sometimes see interesting birds there. The islands of Belanga, a boat ride from Peniche, are a haven for birds, as is the Swamp of Tornado, near Caldas da Rainha.

Because of the steps and stairs the villa is not suitable for someone in a wheelchair or who finds stairs difficult. It would be fine for older people for whom stairs are not a problem, and who would enjoy the peace and quiet. The air-conditioning can warm the villa in cooler weather as well as cooling it in hot weather. The garden is large enough for children to play, or for sunbathing. It is surrounded by a small fence beside which a hedge is growing. There are a couple of sun loungers. We prefer not to accept pets but might make an exception occasionally. The alarm clock has disappeared or may be hiding. Don't rely on finding it in the villa.

The property was well maintained but the location was very remote with no amenities close by.

  • 3 of 5

The accommodation was clean and tidy, with sufficient bedding and towels for the guests visiting. These were not changed however over the 10 days we visited. The pool was advertised as being heated but the heating actually should be requested in advance, which we were not made aware of. There was also a cost implication for the heated pool which again, we were not made aware of this prior to our arrival. As a result some of our damage deposit was withheld as payment for the heated pool. I feel that this information should be made much clearer on the initial inventory for the property. This then enables guests to make a decision as to if they actually wish to pay for this facility or not!

In addition, the property is advertised as possibly sleeping upto 8 persons, yet there was only 4 sun loungers available, we were able to manage this as there was only 5 adults in our party, but had other members of our family been able to join us, this would have been difficult.

There was also a problem with all of the guests being bitten during the night- these bites were identified at the pharmacy as being from bed bugs. Although the property was clean, the property may benefit from the mattresses being sprayed to eradicate any potential bed bugs.

Overall although we enjoyed our holiday we feel this area/property did not suit the needs of our family. A CAR IS ESSENTIAL!

Muy bien cuidada y la atención de Luis Santos perfecta.

Si quieres relajarte no dudes en alquilar esta casa... Muy tranquila y muy cerca de una playa completamente vacía... Únicamente hay que hacer la compra a unos 10 kms. Pero no hay muchos problemas de tráfico...

Muy buenas instalaciones pero carencia de detalles.

  • 3 of 5

Casa hermosa y grande de nueva construcción, barbacoa, piscina climatizada, etc. Pero ni pinzas para mover la brasa, ni para la carne, ni un perchero en la casa.... Incómodo en ese sentido para habitar.

Algo alejado de lugares donde comer o tomar algo, 2.5km lo más cercano.

No hay tiendas ni supermercados cercanas, hay que ir en coche.

Entorno maravilloso pero falto de vida.

La casa bien.

Casa das Laranjeiras, number 40 at Pinhal Village, is about 5 minutes from the nearest point on the shore of Obidos Lagoon. We are close to the beaches of the lagoon and the bigger beaches and sometimes wilder sea on the west coast. Golf is at Bom Sucesso, Praia D'el Rey and Campo Real. Beaches and best surf is at Baleal and Peniche. There is a water sports centre near Foz do Arhelo which also has interesting bars, cafes and restaurants. Obidos, a beautiful ancient medieval hill town, and Porto Sao Martinho, a lovely seaside town, are within about 30 minutes drive. Each has a supermarket.

Golf: Nearest golf courses are at Bom Sucesso, Praia D'el Rey, and Campo Real.
