Comments from some of our recent guests: We had a wonderful holiday. It was the perfect place to chill out and relax while still managing to do lots! We went to Lisbon twice and also spent a day in Sintra which was beautiful. We really enjoyed all the towns in the area also. We hope to make it back again sometime! Barry Fitzgibbon and Deirdre Shiel, Ireland

Our stay went very well. Everything was perfect. Ana Santos and family, Portugal

We had a wonderful stay in your house. The villa is beautiful, and weren't the near-by beaches and surroundings even more beautiful we wouldn't have had any incentive to leave it at all. Thanks for the lovely week in your house. We enjoyed it very much. Margarete Stoute and family, Germany

What a fantastic family holiday! We stayed in the villa during August for 2 weeks and enjoyed every minute. We couldn't fault the villa and would highly recommend it. It had everything we needed and is finished to a very high standard in a beautiful setting. It is very spacious both inside and out which was lovely for the kids who got loads of use out of the pool! The local beaches and lagoon are stunning and very family friendly. We visited a number of places whilst there but particularly fell in love with Obidos and can't wait to go back again. Unlike many adverts for holiday villas, this villa is exactly what it says. The Stacey Family, UK

We wanted to congratulate you for the nice villa you have and for the excellent service you offered. The Martin family, Luxembourg

About Sharon George

We bought our newly-built villa in 2009. We love travelling there with our 3 children. They constantly ask when we're going to Portugal again! We all enjoy the stunning beaches - miles and miles of silver sand to explore. The children spend hours on their boogie boards, jumping the waves and finding shells. They're looking forward to starting surf lessons at Baleal next time. We're always finding new things to do in the area, as well as discovering new restaurants. We fell in love with the monastery at Alcobaca on our last trip.

Why Sharon George chose Casalinho

Our villa offers something for everyone! Lots of space inside and out. All mod cons with wide-screen TV and satellite, DVD, Wii as well as Wifi. Board games and books are available as well as a set of golf clubs.

The kitchen is large and superbly equipped. The appliances are all fitted and in immaculate condition. We also provide a charcoal barbecue for our guests.

With 3 golf courses on our doorstep there's plenty to keep golfers happy!

Water lovers have many beaches as well as the Obidos Lagoon to choose from. Surf fans will enjoy the championship waves at Baleal. The Lagoon beaches are perfect for quieter waves. Or stay closer to home chilling in and by the villa's pool. We provide lots of pool and beach toys too!

What makes this villa unique

Our villa is the largest of these modern villas at Perola da Lagoa. We chose it because of the enormous living and dining space, and very large upstairs bedrooms. We love the wrap-round garden that is green and peaceful. We've planted blue hydrangeas surrounding the villa and a pretty flowering hedge around the perimeter to further ensure privacy.

We keep it in immaculate condition - inside and out - alongside our superb local agent, Paula. The garden has matured beautifully since we bought the villa and is private from our neighbours.

Spacious & well equipped in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Impeccably clean and very well equipped with everything you'll need for a great holiday in this unspoilt part of Portugal. The villa is set in the best location within a mature development and close to Bom Sucesso, one of, if not the best beach for miles around.

This part of Portugal resembles the Algarve 30 year ago. Its quiet, uncommercialised and very friendly and the Villa is a great place to explore the stunning town of Obidos but close enough for trips to Lisbon and Sintra. The beaches are stunning with the best beach a mere 5 minute drive. Being located on the Obidos Lagoon gives you guaranteed days in the sea even when the waves elsewhere are a little wild.

The owners have those useful things on hand too - from golf clubs for the excellent courses on your doorstep to sun umbrellas and windbreaks.

It a great property, great value and highly recommended

Fantástica casa y área de vacaciones.

  • 5 of 5

La casa es fantástica, está en un estado muy bueno, y su nivel de equipamiento es muy superior al de la mayor parte de propiedades en las que hemos estado. Esta cerca de la laguna y en una zona rodeada de árboles.

La comunicación con Sharon siempre fue precisa, aunque no hemos necesitado nada durante nuestra estancia.

Nos ha encantado la zona, perfecta para el que busque playas tranquilas incluso en el mes de agosto. Para los que viajen con hijos como en nuestro caso tienen también la posibilidad de hacer actividades como alquilar kayaks o hacer cursos de surf y kite.

Además hay localidades cercanas muy interesantes para hacer pequeñas excursiones.

Estamos deseando poder regresar.

Fabulous surf and relaxation

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in your home and our boys (age 8, 11, 14) really did make use of your gorgeous pool. We spent many a wonderful hour using your barbecue and drinking our new favourite Sharish Blue gin at the poolside. The surf was amazing at Baleal Beach, we loved cycling around the lagoon with Joao Neves' company called Lagobi. They did a terrific job hiring out kayaks and bikes for us all. What a terrific cycle around the lagoon to the beach.We loved our outing to Obidos Medieval Town - the perfect antidote to our surfing holiday. Plus the boys fished on the lagoon, walking themselves down from your home to the water on their own. Thanking you for a lovely week.

Gold at the Portuguese Silver Coast

  • 5 of 5

We made a decision to book this property on short notice.

With Sharon, the owner contact, we had a friendly, kind and uncomplicated administration information exchange and received always replies on questions very fast.

She also provided an perfect arrival information package containing driving directions, a lot of things to do and see, restaurants and other important contacts.

The property was perfectly prepared. Keys found where described. Very clean and really well maintained. We would even say a bit exceptional well prepared compared to our many experiences we gathered in the years renting. We also find some fresh groceries as starter package. The property is very spacious and equipped with everything you need including the kitchen facilities. We a lot enjoyed drinking the afternoon tea in the sun on the terrace in the rear of the house beside the pool. Very chilling.

The area the house is within, is very quite this time of year. Stroll down the street you reach shortly the Obidos Lagoon. Also very quite there. Walk along the shore toward the sea and enjoy some Pastel de Natas in the locals beach bar or walk to the inward end of the lagoon and enjoy a coffee or nice seafood on the deck of the restaurant you'll find there.

Some Golf Courses are really not far away. Drive to Foz de Arelho and enjoy food and drinks at one of the many beach cafes. Obidos and Penice is a short drive away. Even Sintra is in reach for a small day trip.

For sure you need a car to get there and around.

We enjoyed our stay in this property and would describe it as Gold at the Portuguese Silver Coast.

Situated between Lisbon and Oporto, the Costa de Prata (Silver Coast) is an unspoilt area of natural beauty, with vast empty beaches and charming fishing towns. Year-round sunshine and mild climate make this a great holiday destination for any season. Some of Portugal's best architectural, religious and historical sites can be found here.

There are beaches galore to choose from, whether you prefer the gentle lapping of the Lagoon or the wild waves of the Atlantic. The silver sand is the same whichever you choose.

Obidos Lagoon - just a few minutes walk away - has a purpose-built cycle track ideal for walks, picnics, fishing, bird-watching and cycling.

If you can tear yourself away from the water, the nearby city of Obidos has stunning views from its medieval walls. Its narrow cobbled streets are lined with whitewashed houses and there are many restaurants and shops to visit as well as cultural events. There is also a sizeable supermarket as well as pharmacy and ATM's.

Caldas da Rainha, historic spa market town, has a busy fruit + vegetable market, pretty squares, boutiques, restaurants and a lovely park with playground and boating lake. There are also some larger supermarkets as well as banks in this bustling town, which is c20 minutes' drive from the villa.

Golf: Award-winning Praia D'el Rey and Bom Successo championship golf courses are less than 10 minutes' drive. The Royal Obidos golf course has also recently opened just a few minutes away and has stunning views from both sides over towards the Lagoon and the Atlantic. Campo Real and Golden Eagle are also within driving distance.

We have a set of golf clubs at the villa that you are welcome to use during your stay.
