About Mal Watson

We are 3 guys (2 from the North of England and 1 from Scotland) each of whom had a dream of owning our own holiday home abroad. Malcolm and I (Stuart) work and live in County Durham with our respective families whilst Craig recently moved from County Durham to work and live in Manchester with his family. If you decide to book your holiday in our villa we really hope that you enjoy the villa and exploring this beautiful part of Portugal as much as we have. We are keen to continuously improve the villa experience for our guests so we'd love to hear from you about any feedback which you feel would have made your stay more comfortable or fun! As we discover more about the area we will share this with you prior to your arrival and would love to hear about your discoveries to!

Mal Watson purchased this villa in 2009

Why Mal Watson chose Vau (Parish)

We originally chose this property for investment reasons but after having visited the villa and the Silver Coast area ourselves on holiday it has become more than just an investment - its now a home from home where we can kick back and completely unwind with a glass or two of the local 'vinho' whilst enjoying the 'real Portugal'.

What makes this villa unique

This area really is beautiful with loads to do! From the numerous peaceful and secluded beaches to the bustling cobbled streets of nearby historic Obidos, Caldas Da Rainha and Peniche. If you love activity then you'll love this area with world renowned golf courses, climbing, water sports, surfing and horse riding amongst the huge variety of things to do. For great day trips, consider Sintra, Cascais, Estoril and the beautiful city of Lisbon to the South and Sao Martinho Do Porto, Nazare and Coimbra to the North - all within easy reach. For the 'culture vultures' amongst you there are numerous historical sites to visit including Alcobaca Monastery, Batalha Abbey, Fatima, Pegadas dos Dinossarios and more...then relax in tranquility at your villa! Life doesn't get better than this!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Mal,

The holiday was a great success and I am sure we will be returning

next year. Well done on running a great facility - we could not find

anything to complain about. I have attached a CD with a few photos and comments which may be of use to others. Sorry - we were so preoccupied when leaving that we clean forgot to make any entry in your visitor's book. However if you want to pass on my e-mail address to any potential client I will be happy to give your house and your management rave reviews.

Thankyou for the use of your lovely villa over the past week. It's in a fantastic spot and we all had a wonderful holiday. It's a great house and we adore the lagoon.We've been holidaying in Portugal for more than ten years, and the area around the lagoon is by far our favourite, your place is in the perfect location for getting to the beaches. Bom Sucesso is great for smaller kids to swim and provided our boys with hours of fun crabbing and using their fishing net. Jason
