About Gary Brant

Living in the south of England just outside Brighton and had dreamed of owning a holiday home with easy access to it via a major airport like Lisbon from London Gatwick. We stay in the villa as much as we can . The area of Obidos Lagoon we choose because it was an easy drive, comfortably with in an hour of the airport in an unspoilt uncrowded part of the Silvercoast where there are strict controls on further planing development and surrounded by natural forest. The newly built and furnished villa built in 2009 is well proportioned having air-conditioning private pool and garden and private off road parking for 2 vechiles and we felt suited us ideally and the area has plenty to see and do and we fine we always receive a warm welcome from the locals.

Gary Brant purchased this villa in 2009

Why Gary Brant chose Vau (Parish)

I purchased this detached new Villa in late 2009 and newly furnished it because we though the accomadation was ideal for the family with 3 bedrooms large private balconys 3 bathrooms having air conditioning, & Free wi-fi ,private swiming pool in own garden and private off road parking for at least 2 vechiles .The area I felt was ideal being situated within a easy walk of the largest natural lagoon in Portugal with blue flag large sandy beaches and being unspoilt surrounded by a nature reserve and forest in a quiet situation and yet a short drive of amenities and lots to do such as swiming surfing sailing, bike riding and horse riding aswell as golf at many of major golf courses and there are many places of interest such as the medieval walled town of Obidos & fishing village of Peniche.

What makes this villa unique

I love staying at the villa as its situated in a quite situation within less than 10 minutes easy walking distance of and sandy beaches the Lagoon with loads to do or we can just relax with no hassle and benefits from air-conditioning & Free Wi-Fi and yet the villa a short drive of amenities. The property is surrounded by a nature reserve & forest and there are many walks and bike paths locally.

I provide Beach Towels and Sun Unbrella Table and 6 chairs for alfresco dining and 4 Sun Loungers.

The Detached Villa is situated 10minutes drive of major golf courses such as the opened Royal Obidos golf course along with the Bom Sucesso and Playa del Rey and would suite a golf enthusiast.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Gary ,We had a lovely time -the sun was shining & it was very relaxing. The villa was lovely & had everything we needed (even decent channels on the TV which the children appreciated).The surroundings were stunning and we would definately consider returning. 1 week was not long enough & it feels like a distant memory already .Many Thanks Carle & Paul Conway



Hi Gary ,We got back last night after a truly enjoyable stay in Portugal and the villa .We loved the sceney, the sea and Jouni of course the golf .Thanks again. Susanna & Jouni



Hi Gary, We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I felt the villa was in excellant condiction being spacoius & comfortable .We appreciated the villa was away from major urban areas in quiet beautiful surroundings.I suppose the one inconveniancewas poor local tv reception(personally ido not mind as i wouldn't watch tv anyway. Overall its definately a viia to consider again .

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Booking this villa with Gary was so easy and stress free, he was very friendly and answered all questions promptly.

The villa itself is well equipped and feels extremely homely. The extra little touches like the basket of beach towels, books etc really made it feel welcoming. We are not long back and going in October was just the relaxing holiday we needed. It was very quiet in the areas around the villa making for a peaceful holiday but also plenty to do round about. We also used the pool which was great to cool down in after a day exploring, it's an ideal size as it gets heated up from the sun.

We had pre-booked rental cars from the airport which I would highly recommend for this villa, it was so cheap and really gave you scope to explore the area. Gary was so helpful suggesting company's to go through and the directions he gave us to the villa were so informative it made driving a lot less stressful than I had anticipated.

There are so many nice towns around the area, visiting Obidus is a must. It is such a beautiful place with great building and history. Around the villa itself it only takes around a 4 minute walk to the lagoon with spectacular views. There is also a lot of activities to do around the area and we personally went to Peniche for surfing which I believe was a 20 minute drive, well worth it!! We had a great time. There is also a causeway here which goes across to Baleal, it is such a fantastic area and so many little cafes with amazing views. No matter which way we drove we always seemed to come across spectacular views and little towns. There are some great little cafes and restaurants we went to just a short drive away.

We had such a good holiday for a very reasonable price and would definitely return again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and kind comments made . I am naturally very pleased you had a most enjoyable stay and the companies i introduced you to you found helpful and cost effective.Naturally i can not guarantee the companies i introduced you to however i have found them reliable over many years and i am always pleased to try and offer suggestions to guests as to what may save a few pounds relative to your holiday as a whole if asked . As to my villa, i very much regard it personally ,as a home from home with a few personal touches and when ever possible try and stay in my holiday home as it is situated in a quite natural forest surroundings with as you found many local restaurants and cafes which i find reasonably priced and find the local area unspoilt were you are sure of a warm Portuguese welcome . As you said there are numerous places to visit and a wide variety of activities to do if that is your want and hopefully the information folder in my villa was a good starting point giving you positive suggestions. I am pleased you found the villa and area offer good value for money and you had a very enjoyable holiday and look forward to hopefully welcoming you back in the future .

Contemporary stylish villa offers great access to

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th visit to this villa. We love the area and the villa.

We normally visit in the Spring or Autumn and love how peaceful the area is but this time we visited the last week of July 2016 and found although busier it was still very relaxing.

The villa is a true home from home. Three very spacious en suite bedrooms easily accommodate a large family.

A fully equipped kitchen allows you to cook up a storm and their is a BBQ for outdoor chefs.

My teenagers loved the fact they could still access WiFi and the TV has the main British channels plus an extensive DVD collection.

The pool is clean and very welcome when staying at 'home' for the day and the garden is well

maintained and whilst we were there the pool was cleaned and the grass cut.

The owner leaves a comprehensive folder of things to do in the area. Also the villa was spotless when we arrived and owners' directions to the villa were spot on and he is very helpful and accommodating.

We love the area. Immediately on your doorstep is a beautiful tidal lagoon and amazing sandy beaches. The area is ideal for watersports including paddleboarding, surfing, sailing and canoeing. The lake has a lovely path around ideal for walking or cycling. It is also ideally placed for world class golf courses. My son went Scuba diving locally in Peniche and said this was excellent.

The quickest and easiest way to get there is by plane to Lisbon hire a car and this villa is an hour north of Lisbon. However on our last 3 trips we have taken the Brittany Cruise ship from Portsmouth to Santander and loaded up our bikes and boards. This has proved an excellent extension to our weeks booking.

This is a first class villa and you will love it here.

wonderful relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

myself and my husband and 3 small children (7, 4 and 2) stayed 9 days in Gary's villa. We truly had a wonderful stay. The villa was very clean and very well maintained. Gary, the owner, was always on hand to comprehensively answer any queries we had. The pool as beautiful and proved a massive hit with the kids, who were in it morning, noon and night!

The villa is very private and in a quiet location, which suited us perfectly. Nonetheless, it is a short drive to a number of attractions including the great surfing beaches of Peniche. We had rented a car for the few days which I do feel was necessary unless you were planning on staying the villa and only wandering down to the local cafe's (which are also great!).

Thanks for everything Gary

excellent property and a lovely part of Portugal

  • 5 of 5

we had a great holiday and found the villa to be very clean and comfortable. The outside space and pool were both great and we spent a lot of time relaxing by and in the pool. The area around Obidos is great with excellent beaches and local towns (Alcopaca, Beleal etc). We had some great meals which were generally very reasonably priced. Will definitely visit the villa/area in the future.

Unforgettable experience in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Recently returned from an unforgettable week staying in a beautiful location.

The villa proved to be very comfortable and totally lived up to the description provided - a true 'home from home!' It is located in a peaceful location but close to such a beautiful lagoon with an amazing and huge sandy beach.

The villa layout makes it feel very spacious and this is also helped by the wide range of facilities available, particularly the pool! It has been maintained to a very high standard and this is greatly enhanced by how clean everywhere is.

Gary, the owner, was particularly helpful and nothing was too much trouble. He provided very clear directions and instructions prior to the trip. There is also a very informative and useful folder available in the villa which was used regularly during our stay.

Have already recommended this villa to both friends and family members.

Enjoyed every aspect of our stay but particularly enjoyed visiting San Martinho, the lagoon and the water park at Peniche! Edgar's, Bica da Lagoa and Cais in San Martinho restaurants thoroughly recommended, particularly for their tasty fish!
