“Wonderfully well equipped and well presented villa in quiet location”
Reviewed 1 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This is a great villa for a family holiday. Good size rooms, 3 bathrooms and very well equipped kitchen. The owner also kindly leaves you a welcome pack of essentials - bread, butter, cheese, milk, tea coffee. And the cupboards have a few handy dry goods - oil, salt and pepper, pasta, rice. There is everything you need for days on the beach - wind breaker, towels, bucket and spade, parasol. The garden and pool is lovely, not a heated pool so we found afternoons were best as it had warmed up a bit! The villa is on one of the best plots, far corner that feels very secluded and quiet. It would be even better if the hedge on the RH side (as you look at house from garden) was grown higher. Then it would be totally private. We would definitely return to this villa and really love this area of Portugal. Only a couple of things would make this brilliant villa even more brilliant - more pillows on the beds and a hairdryer!

“Villa is Perfect!”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

The villa is absolutely lovely and more than covered everything we wanted. We couldn't get the wi-fi to work which didn't please our 10 and 14 year old children, but for us it wasn't a problem!!! Chances are we could have got it sorted out in Caldas de Rainha at LeClerc but we just didn't bother!! The weather for us was a bit topsy turvey, but if you drive 20 minutes inland all is well. We chose a cloudy day to go out on the bikes which was brilliant. The 'bread man' drives past every morning at 10am which we used most days, just listen out for the horn on the vehicle. We drove to Lisbon for the day which was an absolute joy, a gorgeous city. We went to Norpark Water Park in Nasare which was great fun too, and pretty empty which was even better. Make sure you walk to the walls of the castle in Obidos, not to be missed as the views are breathtaking. Debbie the lady who looks after the place made us feel so at home, and was extremely helpful indeed. We would love to stay there again, it isn't overlooked at the back of the garden; just trees and bushes which I loved. Thank you Debbie xxx

“Lovely villa in quiet location”
Reviewed 31 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Beautiful and well equipped villa which was very clean and tidy with modern and comfortable furnishings. Lots of space inside and out. Great pool which the kids played in every day and the owners had provided a good selection of inflatable pool toys. The area was quiet when we stayed. You can walk to a few local restaurants and there are also bikes you can use at the house. We cycled to the lagoon a couple of times and enjoyed kayaking on the water. Obidos is easy to get to by car and has a wonderful medieval fort to wander around..

“A very relaxing enjoyable holiday in a lovely villa”
Reviewed 14 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This is a really good place to have an enjoyable summer holiday. The villa is excellent - spacious, light & well equipped. We loved being outside having fun in the pool & lounging in the sun. The villa also has bicycles - we enjoyed cycling along the path by the lagoon - which is very pretty & good for spotting wading birds!
There are good beaches within easy reach &, although we were there in August, they were not crowded.
Stand up paddle boarding on the lagoon is great fun - not to be missed!
Obidos is only 15 minutes away & is very pretty - we enjoyed going there in the early evening when the crowds had gone & the town looked even more lovely in the setting sun.
It is a very quiet peaceful spot - perfect for what we wanted. We would love to return

“Would definitely come back!”
Reviewed 28 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Absolutely loved this villa and we were so sad when we had to come home. The villa itself is stunning and the pictures do not do it justice at all. There was pretty much everything you'd need (except food, although we were even left basic provisions to keep us going until we could get to the supermarket) and we were just so happy and comfortable during our stay. The surrounding area is very pretty and the nearest beach was stunning and not busy at all. Car hire is a must here as there is nothing within walking distance, i.e. supermarkets etc. and the nearest one at Bom Successor golf course (5 mins drive) hardly had anything on the shelves so you'll need to get into Obidos to Intermarche (10 mins) which is a big supermarket with everything. Local wine was cheap and lovely. There were no downsides to the villa at all, it was fantastic. The area however, was a little limited for things for the kids to do, although this wasn't necessarily a problem for our children but may be for another family. Unless you like fish, food choices were slightly limited too (I love fish but my husband and kids all hate it). We did go into Lisbon on our last day but I think because it was Sunday, hardly anything was open so I would avoid going in on a Sunday! Obidos medieval walled city was just lovely and we really liked this as a day out and the restaurants within it were much better and had more choice. What I definitely did not like about this area though was the amount of flies. We couldn't have a meal, inside or out, without being attacked. It got on my nerves within a day of being there but it still didn't spoil our holiday. The villa was beautiful, can't recommend it enough! Thanks for a lovely relaxing holiday :)
