About Dave McHugh

We live in England with our 2 children. My wife and I both work but love holidaying in Portugal, the people are very friendly and the Silver Coast offers something special for all ages. The climate is perfect with warm temperatures all year round and cooling breezes in the summer months.

Dave McHugh purchased this villa in 2009

Why Dave McHugh chose Casalinho

We chose this area of Portugal to purchase a villa, due to the fact that the area is largely unspoilt and cannot be over developed due to the strict planning restrictions in place around Obidos Lagoon. We are a family of 4 and find such a variety of things to keep us all entertained throughout our holidays here. We can visit a different beach each day, explore local towns and villages and try out the numerous activities available on or around Obidos Lagoon. We have enjoyed exploring some of the many historic sites within the area, finding authentic Portuguese restaurants and generally enjoy this relaxed and friendly part of Portugal. We hope we have thought of everything that you will need when staying at our luxury villa.

Guestbook comments from the owner

June 2014: Had a great stay at the villa. The villa is very well equipped, very clean and a very well maintained garden/ pool. The area surrounding the villa is very peaceful and the nearby beaches are some of the best we have seen around the world. Bom Sucesso beach is great for relaxing and walking, as is the path around the lagoon. Edgar's bar is a very friendly place and has wifi available to its customers. Praia del Rey is also a fantastic beach. Obidos is very interesting, but Buddha Eden is a must to see. Such fantastic fantastic gardens and amazing statues. We have not visited the Silver coast before, but will certainly be returning. This area is definitely not just for golfers.

We had a great holiday at your villa...the villa was fabulous...very well equipped, spacious and comfortable. Our two children loved the garden, swimming pool and DVD collection! Your directions to the villa and supermarket were excellent and easy to follow. We also found the information pack at the villa very informative and provided us with fabulous days out. Obidos and the gardens at Buddha Eden were the highlights of our days out.

Thanks again!

This was our second stay in the Silver Coast and we loved the location, very quiet and peaceful but everything was close by when needed. Your villa is first class, very comfortable and had everything we needed for our 2 week stay. Thanks for your recommendations for days out, we particularly enjoyed the monastery at Alcobaca, even the children enjoyed exploring the monastery. The beaches were stunning and we had great weather throughout our stay. We would highly recommend a stay at your villa to our friends and family. Thanks.

Fabulous Villa, Great (Quiet) Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 great weeks here over the summer (2017).

The pictures show you exactly what you're going to get. It is located on a quiet cul-de-sac on the edge of the local village. There is nothing at the back of the property except for trees.

Our kids (9 and 6) enjoyed the pool and it is a good size (but not too deep) and it wasn't too cold. There is well kept garden around the villa that can be used for games.

There are plenty of beaches (all amazing) within only 5 minutes drive, including Obidos Lagoon - which you can walk right to (the main beach there is approx 2km walk away).

A car is essential as the supermarkets are a little drive away, but have everything you might need.

We had a trip out to the Budha Eden gardens (check out their blue sparkly wine) and a visit back to Lisbon (approx 1 hour away).

The house is lovely!!

  • 5 of 5

Really nice location close to loads of stunning flawless beaches. Just a word of warning, best to arrive in daylight as due to lack of road lights the property is very difficult to find in the dark! I would recommend the local area highly, Obidos castle was lovely and the fresh fish we had was perfect.

A car with sat nav is essential if you are a less than savvy navigator. We definitely struggled with this but ultimately found our way about.

The house is lovely, clean and large, we had a wonderful trip. Thank you!

Wow, superb villa, very comfortable with everything you could want.

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant stay at this villa and we were blessed with fabulous weather. The villa has everything you could possibly want making it a very comfortable stay. We made it a 2 centre holiday, combining a stay at the villa along with a few nights in Lisbon. Lots to do in the area so much so that we didn't want to leave. Obidos and Buddha Eden are the highlights of the area. We even managed a spot of surfing in Baleal. All in all a great stay, we'll definitely be back.

Fantastic villa

  • 4 of 5

The villa is a very well kept property with everything you could need. The garden and pool area was lovely. We liked the daily visit from the bread man (he honks his horn around 9.30am!) bringing fresh bread, doughnuts and custard tarts and the Pingo Doce supermarket (about 15mins away) has everything else you could require. We paid a visit to Obidos, walked the wall and had a horse drawn carriage ride (we paid 30 euro) and visited the beautiful gardens of Buddah Eden (bargin entrance fee). All in all a great relaxing holiday.

Car: necessary


The edge of Obidos Lagoon is less than a 5 minute walk from the villa. There is a cycling / walking path which goes right around the lagoon, perfect for an end of day stroll. The nearest beach is approx 20 minute walk from the villa. Within 5 or 10 minute drive there are numerous spectacular beaches, sand dunes and the stunning Atlantic Ocean. There are excellent surf beaches at Peniche and Baleal for the more adventurous.


The villa is 45 minutes drive from Lisbon airport. A car is essential to explore this unspoilt area of Portugal. Porto airport is approximately 2.5 hours away.


15 minutes drive to the fabulous medieval walled town of Obidos. 20 minutes drive to the Spa town of Caldas Da Rainha with daily markets. Slightly further afield are the traditional seaside resorts of Sao Martinho Do Porto and Nazare. Alcobaca, Fatima, Sintra and of course Lisbon are all worthy of a visit.

Further Details:

There are several restaurants near to the villa: Rio Cortico Lagoa restaurant on the cliff tops overlooking the Atlantic and the Lagoon, serving lovely fresh fish (5 mins) spectacular views of the Atlantic and the Lagoon. Edgars Restaurant is also situated in nearby Praia Do Bom Sucesso (5 mins). The lagoon side restaurant, overlooking the inland sections of the lagoon can be reached by walking around the lagoon cycle path.

There are a number of restaurants at the Bom Sucesso Design Resort (5 mins), including Maze Pizzeria and Viva Maria. There are also restaurants in the club house at Royal Obidos which is less than 5 mins drive away. There are also several restaurants at Praia D'El Rey / Marriott Hotel - 10 mins. Please contact us if you need additional information.
