At the rear of the Villa is a separate covered outside kitchen with sink, built-in brick BBQ and traditional bread oven. This also includes a large covered dining area with wooden table and chairs and a shower room with WC and sink. The area between the house and the outside kitchen is fully paved making a delightful courtyard and children's play area. A full sized table tennis table is available for guests use.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Brian and Yvonne

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for organising such a memorable stay for me at your beautiful villa. My sisters and I had a wonderful stay! The little touches arranged by yourselves were amazing; the fridge full of booze :-) and the pastry box that we felt was bottomless as no matter how many times we dived into it!

Our wonderful taxi driver Candido was also brilliant! We never had to worry about how we were going to get home after a night out.

The surrounding area by the villa is picturesque and the local town Obidos was beautiful. The best part of the days out was coming back to your gorgeous villa, it really is immaculate and has everything you would need! The outside terrace area and pool just add to the beauty.

Thank you for arranging everything on behalf of my husband, and thank you for making my 40th birthday a very special event.

I look forward to staying there again!

Kind regards, Jag

Very well equiped house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa for 11 nights from 28th August, and we had a wonderful time. The house was spacious and well equipped. We particularly enjoyed the outside eating area. It is a rural location, but in an excellent position for exploring the area. The beaches were wonderful, our favourite being near Peniche. We also visited Nazare, Ericeira, Fatima, Sintra, Mafra, Batalha and Lisbon and found them all very interesting.

We were frustrated with the internet. We had to top up three times, and the connection was poor. We relied on our mobile phones most of the time.

I would definitely recommend this villa, it was very homely and comfortable.

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa exceeded our expectations in every way, we found the property with ease following the comprehensive instructions, access to the property was straightforward and as per instructions. The property was extremely clean and well equipped, in addition the provisions left in the fridge were a nice touch. The pool was superb and there was plenty of equipment available. We visited Sintra, Lisbon (parked in underground car park near Hard Rock Cafe), Fatima and Batalha, Nazare, Alcobaca and the Budha Eden Gardens which are a 10 minute drive from the property. The outside cooking and eating area is great and the barbecue is a great addition. The nearest restaurants are in Caldas da Rainha around 15 mins away, we can highly recommend the Sable d'Italia; number one on trip advisor. We can recommend this property at every level.

All the comforts of home, with loads of holiday extras

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this villa immensely. It is very comfortable with all mod cons. It's a family house rather than a holiday house, so is full of all the knick-knacks you need. Superb bowl of fruit and filled refrigerator on arrival, no shortage of towels etc. It was mid-October but the swimming pool was easily warm enough to swim in (every day). Pool house is full of inflatables.The table tennis table was a big hit with our teenagers and we set it up on the patio. Barbecue house was used a few times and the outdoor seating is great for breakfast and dinner. We didn't use the bikes because the house is on the top of the hill ....

The WI-FI needs to be topped up an the local tabac - we spent 20 euro for about 10 days, split between the four of us. If you have a girl teenager then use her to sniff out free wi-fi every day you are out. Beware of the driveway; it is steep and our hire car could easily ground it's nose getting out.

The location is definitely rural. The village has a wee shop, a cafe and a bar but all deserted most of the time. Lots of yappy dogs, fruit trees and the occasional goat. There is a circular walk which takes in half a dozen old wells. It's only about ten minutes drive down to picturesque Obidos. The best restaurants are just before Obidos in Senhor da Pedras. Loads of excellent deserted beaches in the vicinity and Peniche is surfing central. Only an hour for a day out to Lisbon (recommend the Aquarium) or 90 minutes to Tomar.

We have been to properties that are just holiday lets and have no character , little in the way of amenities and just the bare essentials are supplied .

We have been to properties that are obviously used by a family but everything that you might need in a house is locked away in the garage or a separate room so you can't even get hold of a screwdriver when you want one.

This property is different , the pictures do not do it justice , everything is there for you to enjoy your holiday to the maximum. There are games , a table tennis table , bats , balls , every type of swimming aid you could need , cds , dvds , books ( fiction and non fiction ] as well as the contents of the garage which enabled us to repair a door handle while we were there . How many holiday villas do you go to that have 2 Bob Dylan Cds and an Andrea Bocelli CD , ok, I admit I'm a fan of both and this may have swayed my appraisal .

The decor of the place is how you would want your own holiday villa to look , clean , well maintained and well appointed .

The surrounding area is extremely quiet and it is far enough out of the way but still on the edge of a village so you don't feel cut off from the outside world .The surrounding area is full of beautiful beaches , history , and all the amenities associated with a modern European country but often at prices not associated with the UK . We called at the Pastelaria Sabores de Mario E Christiana 2525-471 a couple of miles south of Peniche which is basically a bread and cake shop with tables and chairs outside , we had 2 juices and 2 ciders 4.20 eu , 4 delicious sandwiches 5.70 eu , 5 equally delicious cakes , 2 of which were as big as a tea plate 3.60 eu and 3 coffees 2.70 eu a total of 16.20 euros for 4 people about £14.60 at the time of writing

The pool area , barbecue area , outside sink ,garage complete with Table Tennis table , gardens and all of the outside space areas perfect as the inside . We would recommend this villa as there is something for everyone . I am sure the owners are justifiably proud of it

A lovely and relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The villa has everything you could ask for. We swam, had BBQs, played table tennis and generally had a great time. It is very family friendly with everything we needed for our 7 month old son. It is also conveniently located for places of interest as well as the sea. Highly recommended!

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We booked this villa for 2 weeks in August 14 and had a fantastic time. The villa is gorgeous! Really well stocked with everything you need for a holiday and immaculate! Great indoor living space but the highlight is the outside space - a great outdoor kitchen and fantastic pool which we and our kids absolutely loved. Great location - far from the madding crowds but within easy distance of beach, Lisbon and Obidos. Car essential and the map provided by Brian and Yvonne beats any sat nav - absolutely brilliant! Really easy to book & Brian & Yvonne promptly answered any questions. Highly recommended!
