Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had a fantastic holiday in the villa - it was perfectly positioned between the beach and the town. We want to tell our friends about it but are afraid we might not get it for next year!" - Dean & Julie Dass, July 2008.

"Excellent, well equipped property for a family or group. Beautiful beaches, safe lagoon swimming for young children and infinity pool very welcome for 'cooling off'. Personal touches very welcome - helpful information during booking, and personal call a few days before departure. Thank you" - The Watson family, Lincoln. August 2010.

A great week in Foz and very much enjoyed the villa. It’s a very spacious and comfortable property and ideally located for all that Foz and the surrounding area has to offer. We enjoyed the water sports on the lagoon, lots of sunbathing and some surfing. We particularly liked Obidos and Sao Martinho do Porto. For a family with active teenagers, Foz offers just about everything we could have wished for. The Mellor family. August 2010.

Modern villa in a traditional Portuguese village

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic, modern, spacious villa in a lovely traditional portuguese village!

The villa is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need, Great size bedrooms, plenty of bathrooms and a lovely open plan kitchen dining area..however as eating out was so cheap in the area that we didn't bother cooking!

The villa is on a main road but its a really quiet spot and only a short walk into both Foz or to the beach where there are a nice selection of restaurants.

The pool was lovely and very quiet, we had it to ourselves for the majority of the holiday.

Would highly recommend for anyone looking to experience traditional portugal in a lovely villa.

Good location, well appointed villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa was just as we had hoped - well appointed with all the comforts of home, including very comfortable beds! The view of the lagoon from the villa is excellent too.

Its location is ideal for everything - an easy walk into Foz do Alreho village and also along to the beach and lagoon, with lots of choice of beach bars and restaurants.

We hired a car and explored the surrounding area - and enjoyed Peniche for the surf, Obidos, Nazare and Caldas de Rainha - all of them very accessible. We had a lovely relaxing week, but will remember next time that it gets a bit chilly in the evenings on the Atlantic coast!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

10 minutes walk in between beach and local shops/restaurants.

Gate and railings surrounding villa meant our toddler was safe and sound.

Lovely palm tree outside to sit and relax under during the afternoon.

Great BBQ area to rear of villa.

Theresa the villa manager was very efficient when the washing machine broke.

For a comfortable stay in a great location, choose this villa.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our villa and found the location convenient. Children's safety is extremely important to us and so we had the gate and railings specifically fitted with this in mind. We hope you'll return. Matt

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Lisbon at 50 Miles Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

The calm, tranquil waters of Obidos Lagoon are a 5 minute walk from the villa. The lagoon provides everything from safe bathing for children to water sports to the seafood on your plate for evening dinner! Venture a little further (10-15 min walk) and you will discover the rolling waves of the Atlantic ocean as a backdrop to the seemingly endless coastline.

Travel:

Faro Airport - approx 4 hour drive south.

Lisbon Airport - approx 1 hour drive south.

Oporto Airport - approx 3 hour drive north.

Car hire is pretty essential, particularly if you would like to explore any of the surrounding towns/cities.

Distances:

Obidos, a medieval, white-walled town is approx 12km away. It is well-worth seeing and was originally a wedding present to a Queen!

Lisbon is about an hour's drive south and is great for a day trip - a regular bus service is available from Caldas da Rainha and takes about 1 hr 20 mins

Coimbra to the north - 2 hour drive - is a 2 centre university city, with the old parts on the hill above the new. Cascais and Sintra on the coast to the west of Lisbon are superb places to visit too.

Further Details:

Immediate vicinity: Foz has a mini-market, bar/cafes, restaurants, health centre, tourist office, pharmacy, a bank and a fishing tackle shop. The Central Bar is a great place to watch any live sports events, including many live Premiership Football matches. The bigger centre of Caldas da Rainha is 15 mins drive and has restaurants, supermarkets, daily fruit and veg market, cinema, train and bus stations, hospital, hotels, a park.

Within half an hour:

Obidos – 15 km – 20 min drive - once the wedding present of a queen, the preserved medieval town of Óbidos is without doubt one of Portugal's most classic walled settlements. Walking the ramparts, visitors can enjoy views of windmills, vineyards and surrounding farmlands. In the residential area below, narrow cobblestone streets are lined with whitewashed houses sporting terracotta roofs. The shops are piled high with local handicrafts, while in spring the town is ablaze with geraniums, morning glories and bougainvillea.

Sao Martinho do Porto - 20 min drive - the main resort along the coast between Peniche and Nazare. This is very much a tourist resort that provides many activities to keep you amused. Sailing, surfing, parapenting, hang-gliding, canoeing, mountain biking, walking, rock climbing and golf are all available here.

Day Trips: Fatima – 104 km – about an hour’s drive inland - the small town of Fatima, with more than 2 million pilgrims a year, is one of the most visited Marian shrines in the world today. In 1916 and 1917 a series of apparitions were seen by three young children that were to profoundly alter both their own lives and the atmosphere of the peasant village.

Berlenga Islands - Boats depart from Peniche - 25 min drive - a marine reserve classified by the Council of Europe as a 'Biosphere Reserve'. The archipelago consists of a large island, Berlenga Grande, and some small granite islands and rocks 7 miles from land. Crossings take approx 30 mins.
