Excellent House - Great part of Portugal.

  • 5 of 5

Have recently returned from an excellent stay at the house. There were 6 of us including two children and the house was perfect. Loads of space, the rooms are bigger than they appear in the pictures. the pool was ideal for the children with good shallow end and steps for easy access. The kitchen is well appointed hand has everything you need. Gareth, the guy who manages the property was super friendly and on hand for any issues. The only fault I can think of is that the pillows could do with updating. other than that, I can't fault the house.

There are some excellent beaches within a short driving distance (you will need a car, there isn't much within walking distance) and Caldas Da Rainha is only a five minute drive where there are several large supermarkets and everything else you could possibly need. Lisbon is less than an hour's drive away, well worth a visit.

All in all, an excellent holiday, highly recommended.

wonderful stay at casa cotier

  • 5 of 5

we are just back from a wonderful weeks stay at casa cotier. The villa was exactly as you see in the pictures and it was immaculately clean on our arrival. We had plenty of room in the villa as it is really spacious , there was six adults and one chld. it is about an hours drive from Lisbon airport but we didn't mind it was very straight forward and easy to find the villa.The villa is in a very quiet area which is exactly what we were looking for, There are plenty supermarkets within five min drive,a bowling alley which has a lovely pizzeria also within five mins we had a great nights fun there and the food was great. we also drove to foz, obidos and peniche all worth a visit. Overall would highly recommend the villa, john the owner was very friendly and easy to deal with, we would definitely be happy to return in the future

Spacious and tranquil

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was very spacious, there was only 5 of us. Two families of 4 could easily share this well equipped holiday home. We loved all the beaches we visited but Foz was the best, with obidos lagoon right next too it, there is paddling for toddlers in safety.

We visited Obidos and walked around the fort wall which gave great views and a real sense of how it would have been to live in medieval times.

We ate out at lots of resturants, not many great for vegetarians but if you like fish and meat then you will find what you want all reasonably priced too.

In between beach runs and excursions, we spent a couple of days just relaxing by the pool, reading books and enjoying being with the kids.

I would recommend this villa to families with children of all ages. But it would also be good for golfing parties as there are great golf courses in the area.

The owners were great in dealing with our booking and I would like to thank them for a hassle free rental.

We did the ferry/drive and the villa is 500 miles from santander, which we broke up with overnight stops in spain. Hope that helps.

Ideal Family Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our four young children (aged 9, 8, 4 and 2) had a wonderful time in this great house which is in a great location Almost anywhere is within half an hour drive so a car is essential.

We could easily access three wonderful beaches, of which Foz was our favourite, and numerous places of interest like Fatima and Obidos. We attended a Medieval Banquet in Obidos which was one of the highlights of our vacation.

The house is very well equipped and well maintained

Very clean, secure, modern and we had loads of room. The pool is a good size and is perfect for younger children as it has steps. We had many great evenings around the barbeque. There were numerous seating options depending on whether you wanted to be in the shade or in the sun. Lots of sun beds too!

Lots of good quality, reasonably priced restaurants nearby.

Dealing with the owners was a joy as was dealing with their local property managers - Alison & Charlie who were very attentive.

Highly recommended.

Maison de vacances idéale pour grande famille

  • 4 of 5

La maison est spacieuse, agréable, calme (sauf que de temps en temps les chiens du quartier qui s'interpellent!) on a pu facilement y vivre à 2 familles (5 enfants) sans être à l'étroit! Elle est idéalement située pour visiter la région et la ville de Caldas de Rainhas est très agréable. La voiture est effectivement indispensable. L'accueil et l'équipement sont conforme à ce qui est présenté sur le site. Nous n'avons rencontré aucun soucis particulier.
