Notes on accommodation: The villa is at the end of a private road, hence no through- traffic, creating additional space at the front of the villa where smaller children can play in totally safety. The villa benefits from gas central heating, plus the addition of a real wood fire in the lounge, for those odd cosy nights. Cots and high chairs can easily be pre-arranged for a fee, and even a babysitting service can be organised. The pool is literally 15 metres from the house, making child supervision extremely stress-free. The access to the road is very private and gated for additional security, with an intercom communication system for any visitors. Outside: This villa is one of only two semi-detached properties on this very private drive and hence benefits from additional privacy from its neighbours. Complimenting the villa is the largest garden of the seven properties and it is only 15 metres from the pool. The villa has a private patio with seating for eight, table & parasol. There are four sun loungers provided for guests use at the pool side. There is one balcony off the master suite and a larger sun terrace including the BBQ. Whilst the pool is shared with 6 other villas, it is large (48 sq.m.) and has extensive areas for loungers and sunbathing, with a direct pool-side shower. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Bed linen and bath towels are provided. Guests must provide own beach towels. Linen and towels are changed weekly. Other: Really useful ground floor bathroom, for those quick showers after lazy afternoons in and around the pool. There is also ample storage provided in a large understairs cupboard for guests use.

Great location and wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

First impression was, "What a great place and the Villa looks marvellous" We weren't disappointed in any shape of form. The villa easily catered for 6 adults and 3 small children. Cot beds were provided and everything we needed was at hand, dishwasher, washing machine and all the normal facilities.

It had obviously been newly painted both inside and outside which gave a really clean and fresh feel to the villa.

The weather could have been kinder, however, it didn't stop us being in the shared pool -about 20 steps outside the villa or wondering down to the fantastic Toa Toa, fresh coffee galore, fantastic Portuguese tartlets and just watching the world go by. Restaurants are great value and all fresh food supplied. A great unspoilt location which we wouldn't hesitate to return to. Thank you Andy for letting us loose in your Villa, we will be returning if you'll allow us! We would, without hesitation recommend a stay in Foz and in particular this villa.

Lovely location for exploring the area

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time returning to an area we have visited twice before. A lovely R&R holiday playing in the pool and taking advantage of the various sports on offer (the Sailing Club, excellent surf school and a local riding school). For those looking for history there are a lot of amazing heritage sites in easy access including Obidos (which we had to visit again), Roman ruins, The Knights Templar at Tomar and dinosaur footprints. I would love to come in the winter months as there are some amazing walks in cooler weather.

The villa offered everything we needed - comfortable beds, good showers, lovely large pool, great BBQ on the balcony that my husband loved - as well as easy access to both explore the area and to walk into the village and sample the local restaurants.

All in a lovely week away from it all. We will certainly hope to stay in this villa again next time we visit the area.

Excellent relaxing holiday in Foz!

  • 5 of 5

To start, the villa was superb and immaculate on arrival. Perfect for a family break. The lagoon and beach which is about 20 mins walk is spectacular with bars and restaurants to accompany it. I would recommend visiting the towns near by such as Obidos and Peniche which are equally amazing and offers different activities.

The owners help and assistance was brilliant throughout, and there was no problem with the security deposit coming back.

I would highly recommend this villa for a superb relaxing holiday.

A fantastic relaxing trip.

  • 5 of 5

On arrival the villa was immaculate. We felt secure in the gated complex and all the area around the villa's were lovely and clean. There was ample parking for everyone's car outside your own villa.

To our delight we had English tv!! It was great to spend the day around the quiet pool, have a bbq for tea and then have a catch up with corrie!

The villa had everything required to make it a home from home, the beds were so comfy and we certainly had enough room for all our family.

The villa had children's games, cards and inflatables for the pool. So the kids always had something to do.

I think if we came again a car would be a good idea, although we walked to the shops everyday and the beach, at times it would be easier to jump in the car. We used taxis quite a lot to go on days out and these were not expensive at all, we visited Obidos, Sao Martinho, and Calas Da Rainha. If we had a car we would of visited more places, but we were happy relaxing around the pool.

The ice-cream bar at the end of the road was amazing and we spent loads of time in there (free wifi and cheap drinks) the owners were lovely and welcoming.

We would recommend this villa to anyone especially if you want to relax.

Andy the owner answered all my questions quickly and efficiently.

Thank you for an amazing holiday Foz!!!

Great villa for winter break

  • 5 of 5

Great villa in idyllic location. The villa was spotless and well equipped. We spent 6 weeks here and found plenty of places to visit. The area was awesome with lovely beaches by the lagoon so this made it a wonderful area for a quiet relaxing holiday. Good restaurants and shops within walking distance. We would have no hesitation in recommending the villa to family and friends.

What a superb villa, very spacious with all the home comforts plus more.

We had the pool to ourselves during our stay which gave us a relaxing rest. The villa is positioned just outside foz, but an easy stroll to the bars and restaurants .

The bar and ice cream parlour at the end of the road was a big hit with the kids, plus the big screen tvs with the footie on my idea of heaven.

Within easy reach of the beaches and local attractions.

Will be recommending it to all my friends.

Car: recommended


The main Foz beach is literally a 20min walk. The clean and sandy beach runs adjacent to the lagoon but also faces the Atlantic Ocean. Bars, restaurants line the beach road offering original Portuguese recipes and freshly caught fish dishes. The furthest beach bar on the sand is great to sit and watch the sunset against the might of the Atlantic breakers. In July / August the beach has volley ball and other events to watch. Lagoon offers fishing, swimming and a sailing and windsurfing school.


Lisbon Airport is only a 50 min direct and easy drive on an excellent motorway (A8). Porto Airport in the north of Portugal is approximately a 2.25 hours drive.

Cheap flights are available from EasyJet, Ryanair, TAP, BMI Baby etc. Car hire is recommended.


15 min from great golf at Praia Del Rey. The spa town of Caldas da Rainha is only a 5 minute drive, providing more extensive facilities, supermarkets, shopping, cinema. 10 min drive from the beautiful and charming medieval town of Obidos, the town boasts a candle-lit Easter procession, a 'medieval festival' in July, and a 'chocolate festival' in November. San Martino, a pleasant resort, is 15 mins north. Great surfing at Peniche beach- 15min. Leira, the largest & nearest city is 45 mins away.

Further Details:

Foz do Arelho contains a superb variety of bars, cafes and restaurants to appeal to most tastes and suit all budgets. The local shops are all in walking distance, i.e. butchers, newsagents, green grocers, deli, bakers etc. The local "Geladara" or ice cream parlour is literally 200 metres from the villa, which also has a bar!
