Total relaxation in style

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the villa for a great week and enjoyed the beauty and space. The villa is fully equipped and we enjoyed cooking, barbecuing and relaxing, as well as traveling around. It is very private and feels very secure. Plenty of space for everyone. The Villa offered everything we needed for our holiday. It is just a stone's throw from Foz do Arelho beach and the lagoon. A car is a must. Be sure to visit the walled town of Obidos. The view from the house is breathtaking, there are many sites to visit nearby. Also the lovely seaside town of Sao Martinho do Porto. We very much enjoyed our visit to Fatima, which is about 30 minute drive. Can not fault this lovely villa and will definitely be coming back again with my family who loved every minute of it.

Nice Place

  • 4 of 5

Nice compound with 3 separate houses and shared swimming pool. Very close to beaches and nice small villages (you need a car). Excellent vieuws to the hills around Caldas da Rainha. All the basics are available in the house. Well maintaned, Wifa available but very slow. Only one complaint: the matrasses of the beds are not comfortable, that is a pitty.

Owners provided us with very much information of activiities in the surrounding (even detailed route description to the airport).

Would recommend this house to friends, we had a good stay.

Quinta do Bouro is set in a quiet village, close to the beach and busier villages and towns. There are plenty of dining options locally as well as excellent outdoor markets. Within easy reach is the UNESCO site, Obidos, a walled medieval town, traditionally gifted by the King of Portugal to his bride. The city of Tomar is within reach, where the highlight is the Castle of the Knights Templar, another UNESCO site. Alcobaça has an incredible monastery as well equally enticing cake shops! The largest natural lagoon in Europe, Obidos lagoon is only a few minutes by car and here you can kite surf, windsurf and kayak, sit in a cafe and watch the world go by, or simply lie on the beach and relax.

Just off shore are the Berlenga Islands, a nature reserve with crystal blue waters and secluded beaches to explore. There are also a choice of top quality golf courses all within easy reach.
