About Michael Gaffney

I had been looking for a property in Portugal for a few years. After a long process of elimination, I settled on the area around the beautiful medieval town of Obidos.

Eventually I would like to retire to this beautiful part of the world and in the meantime, I am more than happy to share my lovely villa with you.

Michael Gaffney purchased this villa in 2009

Making Memories

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of the Armitage family had a wonderful holiday at the perfect base..... Casa Orion. There were eleven of us aged from three to sixty-three.

Feeding the fish before breakfast, collecting pine cones for the bar-bar-que, beating Grannie Jac at table tennis, going sailing with Poppa, endless hours of

fun and laughter in the pool, being a knight at Tomar and catching crabs on the beach are some of the many happy memories we share with of five grandsons. I would'nt hesitate to recommend this villa to other families.

Everything was easy.... The supermarket a few minutes away, the village a short walk, an easy stroll into Obidos and a friendly taxi driver only a phone call away.

Waiting for our luggage at Dublin airport our daughter, mum to three boys, declared that it was the most relaxing holiday she had experienced since becoming a mum almost eleven years ago. It can't get better than that !

Amazing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Orion from 24/5/14 to 2/6/14.

Family group of 6 adults and 2 children.

Jan and Michael welcomed us at the house even though it was 10pm which was very thoughtful. Welcome pack provided.

Throughout our stay they were readily available if needed and full of useful info about the house and area.

We found the house perfect for us - spacious, comfortable, homely.

Lovely gardens and different seating areas to catch the sun at different times, and the pool was just great. 2 very happy girls:) Great having the retractable roof as it really did keep the heat in.

Useful welcome book in house with a lot of information about the house and also local attractions, restaurants etc.

Would recommend to all and hope to return.

Thank you Jan and Michael.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

My' US' family and several 'UK' friends spent 3 weeks exploring this wonderful area of Portugal. 'Casa Orion' with it's surrounding pool, lawn and patio/BBQ made it very easy to entertain everyone who came to visit.

It's central location was perfect, it made day trips very easy and stress free. The village, was within walking distance and very charming as was the town of Obidos. (another place not to be missed). The overall accomidations were great, very modern and very clean. I have reccomended Casa Orion to everyone I know…and will defiantly go back next year.
