About Geoff Colwill

My name is Geoff and I live in the UK with my family who love to come to this beautiful area of Portugal as often as possible. We love our Villa and hope you will too.

Geoff Colwill purchased this villa in 2001

Why Geoff Colwill chose Obidos

The opportunity to build a Villa in this Resort was a chance I couldn't pass up. The Silver Coast is a wonderful part of Portugal and we are still discovering new places to visit each time we come to stay.

Outstanding Villa Stunning Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in a villa in Portugal as a family with small children and it exceeded all our expectations. The villa was well maintained and equipped it suited all our families needs it felt like home from home. It was very spacious clean and provided everything we needed for a most enjoyable stay. The pool was fantastic and we opted to have it heated enabling us to use the pool anytime of the day. The owner was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble all our questions were answered quickly and efficiently and all information received from him and available in the villa was invaluable.

A must to visit is Obidos Lagoon which was great for the little ones we had a fantastic day we also visited many villages within the area giving us a wonderful insight into the real Portugal.

We would highly recommend this villa to anyone wanting to stay in this area as we had a fantastic holiday.

Lovely spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this lovely villa. Geoff the owner, was very helpful in responding to our requests before we left and provided lots of information about the local area which was really useful. The villa itself is absolutely huge; plenty of space for two families with big teenage children. The pool was a big hit and we used it every day and the added bonus of the games rooms in the basement was superb. The beach on the resort is not safe to swim in but it's so beautiful to walk along and paddle at the water's edge - we loved it. For a day on the beach we went to Foz do Arehlo which was perfect. Portugal is a great country with really friendly people. Geoff's villa was the icing on the cake. We had a wonderful holiday. Thanks!

Beautiful villa in a stunning location, perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth stay on the resort this time with 4 children including a small baby. I can truly say that the villa was fantastic and met our needs perfectly helping to ensure we had a wonderful

holiday. It was modern, very spacious, well equipped, clean and tidy. The children were in their element with a super heated swimming pool, pool table, table tennis table and dart board. There was the added bonus of some pool equipment to use eg floats/lilo. This is a great area to come and stay in with an active family, so many lovely places to visit,fab beaches, great restaurants and lots of activities. And this was one of the best villas we have been lucky enough to stay in. Bring on next year!!

Beautiful Villa, excellent service, 10/10

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful villa for a week and had an absolutely amazing time. This was our first holiday abroad with our young child and the owner was so welcoming and provided everything we needed for a comfortable stay. I would definately recommend this villa to anybody who is looking for a relaxing break in a beautiful and friendly area. I would go back there in a heart beat!

A fab villa will all you need for a great holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this villa for a holiday covering 3 generations of our family. We wanted the flexibility of having a villa base with pool to relax in private whilst having access to the facilities of the Marriott hotel just down the road.

We couldn't have been more impressed with the villa, it was more spacious than expected and was wonderfully appointed. The fully equipped games room (pool table, table football, table tennis, dart board) was discreetly positioned in the huge basement allowing the kids (young and old) to have hours of fun. We opted to have the pool heated which was a wise choice as the water temperature would not have been warm enough to allow the kids to spend as long in the pool as they did otherwise.

The kitchen had most utensils you would have at home and allowed to cook well when not out for lunch/dinner.

The surrounded area has plenty of beaches/sights/attractions/activities to keep the most energetic people. We enjoyed the beaches at Baleal, Praia D'El Rey and Obidos Lagoon. The castle at Sintra is stunning, the palace interestingly decorated. We had a great trip to Obidos walking the castle walls.

We took advantage of the facilities at the hotel for golf and tennis lessons, the kids club also organised some horse riding lessons.

There are some good restaurants a short drive away.

You will definitely need a hire car for your time spent there.

Overall we had a brilliant time and highly recommend staying at this villa. Thanks for a great time.

Praia del Rey

  • 5 of 5

The first word that came to mind when we entered the property was 'wow!' The villa is huge and furnished to a very high standard. The facilities went way beyond what we were expecting:- separate freezer, 2 SMEG ovens, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, condenser dryer, not to mention every kitchen gadget you could ever need. The property was very clean on arrival and it has obviously been very well maintained. The property is managed by a lovely lady called Paula who is very helpful. She even came out at 11pm on the first night when we set the smoke alarm off and couldn't work out how to turn it off!

Geoff was also brilliant at keeping in touch and answered all my questions promptly and gave us lots of useful info about the local area.

The pool at the property is brilliant. Quite large, and if you opt for heating, lovely and warm. We only had heating for the last few days but were very lucky with the weather. I would advise future visitors to add in heating if at all possible. This area of Portugal is much cooler than the Algarve, although the sun is just as strong! I would consider us to be real sun worshippers so we were a little concerned before we left the UK, when we saw that the temperature in the area seemed to only hover in the low 20s. In fact the climate was perfect; however, I can imagine on dull days, it can get a little chilly.

The beech at Praia del Rey is lovely although we had red flags every day we went so couldn't really swim in the sea, but that's not unusual for the Atlantic Coast.

The only negative point of the whole holiday were the flies. The good news is they don't seem to go to the beach; however they were never too far away when around the Villa areas. We became expert fly swatters and turned this into a family competition.

All in all, we had a fabulous holiday and would definitely recommend this villa and the area to friends.

Owner's Response: It is always a pleasure to know that clients renting our villa have had a great holiday in this beautiful area of Portugal. We work hard to keep the villa well equipped and maintained. The Atlantic Ocean can produce large breakers which are breathtaking to look at whilst enjoying our great resort beach but you must put safety first which is why the lifeguards will always edge towards caution. In contrast, the nearby beaches of the Baleal and Peniche areas have more predictable surf which is why the surf schools are based there. Again lifeguards are on daily duty during the holiday seasons. If you take the short drive to the beautiful Obidos Lagoon you can swim very safely there. I have heard that there were more flies this year but not when we were at the villa in June 2015. There is spraying that takes place around the resort throughout the year by the maintenance team. We have a very active residents association who will no doubt ensure that this procedure is ongoing.
