Luxury Spacious Villa In Quiet Location With Pool And Superb Views



Updated: 17-Sep-2016
Villa in Foz do Arelho, Silver Coast, Portugal - 3 Large Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, 10 Mins Walk To Beach With Bars And Restaurants

This modern and well equipped villa is located in Foz do Arelho, a small coastal village close to the spectacular medieval walled town of Obidos and the bustling shops and markets of Caldas da Rainha. It can be reached in under an hour from Lisbon airport. The villa is situated in a quiet corner near the centre of the village and only a 10 mins walk from the beach. There are 3 superb golf courses within 20 mins and the town offers excellent access to watersports both in the tempestuous Atlantic for surfing or boogieboarding or in the Obidos Lagoon which offers a calm and shallow alternative, perfect for bathing, canoeing, windsurfing and even kitesurfing at the nearby club. The villa has a fully fitted kitchen with all mod cons, cable TV, wireless internet, CD and DVD player. The villa's private garden and large sun terrace (with BBQ), lead onto a shared pool area at the rear of the property.

About the Owner

We are a couple in our 30s (no children as yet), and have been together for 16 years. We love travelling and try to get away as much as we can, either skiing or exploring different areas. Ray's not one to stay on the beach all day, so we normally have to have some kind of activity planned.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Guest from Waterford , Ireland - "Had a fab holiday, villa was perfect, it was a home away from home, it suited all one needs with 3 young girls under 6. Photos on internet do not do the place justice no disrespect to anyone!"

Guest from Copenhagen, "We found this house via the internet and everything from booking, arrival and our stay here has been a positive surprise. The pool and the pool area is really super and we have enjoyed every day."

Guest from Chesterfield, "Loved the villa, great facilities and made the most of the pool. Had a great time on local beaches. Don't usually return to holiday destinations, but could be tempted to return to Foz. Thanks for a great holiday."

Guest from Bray, Ireland..."Fabulous villa, really enjoyed the pool and the nice big bedrooms. Hopefully will be back to Foz next year and would love to stay in 5A (the villa) again. Thanks."

Superbly located, well equipped and clean

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing holiday, the Villa is superbly located for the beach, town and local restaurants and shops. We were 5 adults, but the villa and town suit all ages. Extremely well equipped and clean, we couldn't have asked for more.

Some great places locally to visit, and easy to get to from Lisbon.

We have loved out stay in this villa.

  • 5 of 5

Owners were most helpful and supportive. Within a very short walking distance from the shops, restaurants and the bars (Trombone being our favorite) this property is super quiet and well located. The grounds and pool are immaculate, the inside is beautifully clean. The bedrooms are spacious and beds super comfortable. Bliss!

This is a truly charming villa in a really friendly resort that we would definitely recommend over and over.

Lovely house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my husband and two teenage children. The house is lovely. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Was a great base for exploring the area which is lovely. Obidos is beautiful and very close. Lots of lovely places to eat nearby and very reasonably priced. Easy to pop down to Lisbon which we did a couple of times. The lagoon is great for young and older children alike. Would definitely recommend here if you're looking to stay in this part of Portugal.

This was our 9th year in Foz do Arelho. We love the place - it has everything that you wish for in a 'live like a local' holiday. It was our first time in this particular villa and I have to say we were not disappointed. It is immaculately maintained in every respect. For families with smaller children, the added bonus of the small gated garden being next to the pool is perfect. The small development of 4 villas boasts sunshine all day in most areas and is surprisingly quiet given that the location is central to the village square. It feels like you are miles away, with fantastic views of the lagoon, but only a 2 minute walk to everything you need with regards entertainment, food supplies and restaurants. The beach is only a 10 minute stroll and lends itself to the most amazing child-friendly lagoon. We would recommend this particular villa to anyone wanting to stay in Foz do Arelho. It's location is perfect in every respect but that is only if you can book it up before we get there first LOL.

From the Owner

We decided to buy a property in this area having spent 3 years living abroad (Far East and Australia), it was a must to have somewhere hotter than the UK and near a beautiful beach. We watched Channel 4's 'A Place in the Sun' and the Silver Coast was featured. We then bought that magazine and found both this villa and our fantastic Management Company. We fell in love with the area on our first visit as well as the villa - made an offer in that one weekend. The stunning scenery, relaxed atmosphere and the smell of eucalyptus and the sea in the air reminded us so much of a wonderful 2.5 years in Australia. All of our family have now been to visit and go back regularly. It's definitely a home from home for every guest staying.

From the Owner

The village of Foz is unspoilt. We love staying in the area, and our villa is ideally situated within a minutes' walk from the village square. The view from our terrace looks down towards the village and over to the lagoon. The swimming pool is one of the largest in the area (as far as we can see from Google Earth), and is at the back of the property, away from the road. It's great that we can walk directly out on to the pool area - no need to go up and down stairs.
