About the property

This fabulous villa is part of a UNIQUE AND SPACIOUS CONDOMINIUM located in a beautiful region of Portugal. It is spacious, beautifully decorated and ideally located to cater for the interests of families and friends.

THE VILLA CAN EASILY SLEEP UP TO 10 PEOPLE considering the offer of three double beds in the three bedrooms of the upper floor, one double bed sofa in the second living room on the ground floor, and plus two double bunk beds in the large playroom also on the ground floor.



In the UPPER FLOOR of the villa there are two bedrooms with two double beds and a bathroom with bath/shower; one bedroom with a double bed and an exclusive bathroom with bath/shower and jacuzzi; and outside there is a big terrace with direct access from the bedrooms, specially conceived for lazy breakfasts over the quiet scenery.

At the ENTRANCE LEVEL there is an extra-large living and dining room (80m2) with two fireplaces; a bathroom; a fully equipped family kitchen; and a large terrace where the whole family can take relaxing meals under a sunshade, or simply enjoying the stunning view over the lagoon.

And on the GROUND FLOOR there is a second large living room (45m2) with another fireplace and an exotic interior garden continuing the exterior landscape, including a double bed sofa; a bathroom with shower and all necessary conveniences; a large playroom, with writing desks and two double bunk beds, specially designed for young people in large families.

It is surrounded by green space, two large swimming pools with leisure areas, and a well equipped playground for children with a slide and other toys.

And guests will find all the amenities they could want – TV, free internet, central heating, all modern appliances and a welcome pack to get you started.

The villa is within walking distance of excellent beaches bars and restaurants, although you can simply choose to stay home in a luxurious environment enjoying a cosy fireside in the winter, or in the sunny days watching the stunning view from the terrace or taking a refreshing dive after a sunbath in the leisure areas around the two amazing swimming pools.

And when summer comes you can walk around the tranquil village after going for a swim in the Atlantic coast beach, or in alternative stroll down to the lagoon and hire a small boat for the day.

The gastronomy in the area is renowned but you may stay in the house around a barbecue with refreshing dives in the swimming pools.

And the rest… we recommend you take a look at the photographs.

A lovely designed and equipped villa with a perfect location and friendly service

  • 5 of 5

We booked the villa for two families of 8 persons in total (a family of two parents with a teenager child and a family of two parents with three kids of different ages) for two weeks from 06 to 20 August 2016.

The house is very big, clean, nice designed and equipped with everything what is needed for normal family living (bed ware, different kind of towels, kitchen equipment, laundry, etc.). The owners' family are extremely friendly people. We got during the check-in from the owners a lot of compliments and full informational support in respect to the location including a small tour around local important points (mini markets, beaches, restaurants etc.). In the middle of our vacation the owners organized a cleaning of the house.

The description of the property provided on HomeAway is very accurate. If you would need any additional information, you can send your requests via HomeAway. The owner responds almost 'in online modus'.

The location of the villa is close to 'perfect'. You walk approximately 20 min to the lagoon beach, where the water is warmer than in the ocean and there are no waves. The atlantic beach is some 10-15 min more to walk. However, it is better to have a car for shopping and for sightseeing. The mini markets are 2-3 km far from the villa. You also reach the atlantic highway A8 in 10 min by car and are able to drive around (Penice, Nazare also Lissabon or even Porto).

We use this opportunity to thank again to the owner for our perfect vacation an would definitely come again to Portugal and recommend this property to our friends and relatives.

Great house with all comfort and splendid view

  • 5 of 5

This is really a very beautiful villa, situated in a well kept condominium with great swimming pool.

From the two terraces of the house one can enjoy a splendid view over the Foz-do-Arelho-lagoon.

The Quintas family welcomes you with great Portuguese hospitality. As we arrived late the first day, they surprised us with some bread, cheese, choriço, drinks and cookies. They showed us around in the villa, the condominium, and even the neighbourhood, showing us where to eat and shop.

The villa has all comfort, including dishwasher, barbecue, microwave oven etc. The rooms are clean and large and the beds comfortable.

From Foz do Arelho/Nadadouro several tourist attractions (Óbidos, Alcobaça, Batalha, Nazaré, Leiria, Fátima...) are just ten minutes to one hour driving away. In Foz do Arelho there are several restaurants and small supermarkets. Bikes are available to get to the town centre, situated at 2,5 kms.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Lisbon at 80 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Foz do Arelho at 500 Metres Nearest Golf : Praia Del Rei at 15 Kilometres Nearest Train : Caldas da Rainha at 8 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A8 at 8 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Foz do Arelho at 500 Metres Nearest Beach : Foz do Arelho at 500 Metres Car: recommended

Foz do Arelho is set on the Sliver Coast and is located at the gateway to the picturesque Obidos lagoon.

You can enjoy beaches stretch all along this wonderful Portuguese village or discover new promenades taking into the centre where you will find mini supermarkets, bars, restaurants, a pharmacy, bakery, bank and all sort of support for your day to day life.

And is only one hour drive from Lisbon, so you can easily take day trips to this historical wonderful city.

With a short drive along a panoramic coast road, you are invited to visit São Martinho do Porto with is calm and pretty bay in the shape of a shell.

Local attractions include a sailing school in a short walk away from the villa, where you can also rent boats or windsurf.

The main town of Caldas da Rainha is a 10 minute drive.

There you can find a picturesque daily market or visit the old park with centenarian trees surrounding an interesting museum of modern art. Or you can simply go shopping around in the charm of a small Portuguese town.

The famous Praia del Rei Golf Course is further around the lagoon near Obidos, an historical town built inside a mediaeval castle that also worth a detailed visit.
