About Andrea James

I lived in Spain with my husband for 5 years on travelling to Portugal we came across foz do Arelho and decided this was the place for us. We loved the unspoiled landscape and sandy beach. We have lived here now for 9 years and still enjoying every minute.

Andrea James purchased this villa in 2014

Why Andrea James chose Caldas da Rainha

We loved the area and decided to purchase a plot of land to build our dream villa in a beautiful location.

What makes this villa unique

Foz do Arelho offers everything we needed a relaxing place to be, only a few minutes to all the amenities and lovely places local to visit.

My husband is keen in all water sports and foz do Arelho offers everything and I love to walk along the beautiful lagoon.

Stunning villa and stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of our family spent a week in this amazing property and what a special villa this was was. Luxurious, spacious and so well equipped

Andrea and Martin really have thought of everything and more to cater for adults and children alike. All the rooms were stunning with fabulous views over Obidos lagoon and sunsets to die for! We found it hard to drag ourselves away from the villa to explore the area beautiful as it was!

Can thouroughly recommend a trip to Peniche to watch the surfers at sunset and Obidos with its beautiful village surrounding the castle.

Andrea and Martin could not have been more helpful with information on the surrounding area and recommendations for eating out..nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for sharing yr home with us we had a fantastic week just too short!!

Beautiful villa, perfect view, everything has been thought of!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the villa from 5th - 12th August, our group ranged from age 15 - 75. We all thought this villa was fantastic, it's a beautiful villa in a beautiful location. It's obvious that a lot of thought has gone into this villa, we genuinely couldn't think of anything else we needed. We had nice weather so we didn't really use the TV room or the gym, we made most use of the bikes and pool and just sitting on that stunning terrace.

It was immaculate when we arrived and is very tastefully furnished and decorated. The view from the front of the house is just stunning.

Andrea and Martin were very helpful, there was lots of communication beforehand and it helped to be shown around the villa. They also checked everything was OK with us during the middle and at the end of the stay. We didn't have any problems but its good to know you can contact them easily if you do.

We hadn't visited this part of Portugal before and we were very impressed, it's a relaxed, unspoilt area and everything was less expensive than we are used to which was a pleasant surprise. It's definitely an area we wold like to come back to.

The only problem we have is that 1 week wasn't long enough and this villa has now set the bar very high for the future because we all thought it was the nicest we had stayed in! We are very much hoping to visit the villa and area again.

Thanks again!

Beautiful villa, stunning view and equipped with absolutely everything for an enjoyable holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is such an impressive villa in terms of both its location and fabulous panoramic views as well as the high spec of the facilities. It was really lovely to have a range of areas to sit, relax and eat in. All of the bedrooms were large and opened on to the pool so everyone felt that they had a luxurious room.

We were a party of six adults and two children (ages 1 & 2.5yrs) and it was brilliant having a little play area as well as a stair guard to take the stress levels down.

Walking to the lagoon every day was a nice chance to get out and was close enough to take pushchairs and sometimes even the bikes that were there.

Andrea met us when we arrived and was fabulous at giving us the right amount of info to make the most of the villa and the surrounding area.

Stunning - Can't recommend highly enough!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing villa at which to spend our family holiday. Andrea and Martin were the perfect hosts, the villa had absolutely everything we needed and more. The pool was perfect and having it heated just finished everything off nicely - our 3 year old daughter absolutely loved her time at the villa, spending most of her time in the pool, on the swings or enjoying the array of DVDs and games. The villa caters fully for children and adults alike and every aspect has been thought through to the finest detail. We will certainly be back. A huge thank you again to Andrea and Martin

Beautiful Villa in ideal family location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Villa Lagoon to find a warm welcome from Andrea and Martin who were extremely helpful with advice and answering our questions about our holiday location...they were the perfect hosts and set our stay off to a perfect start. The Villa was beautiful and extremely well cleaned with all of the practicality needed for a comfortable self catering family holiday.

We especially enjoyed our bike rides to the pretty local village of Foz where Cafe Central was found to be of extremely good quality and reasonable cost, the bake shop / coffee shop of 'Pastelaria Beta' had delicious cakes, bread and coffee. The local boat club was a short walk with canoes, sailing boats, wind surf boards etc to hire, also providing tasty lunches and snacks, the beach was closeby and easily reached on foot or bike with beach cafes found from mid way. Obidos with its quaint streets and castle was well worth the visit. Our holiday was for 7 days so was limited with respect to sightseeing and with such a fabulous Villa to enjoy we did not want to do too many trips away ! We did decide to use the local taxis for our few trips out instead of car hire and this worked extremely well for us and was far less costly than car hire, also when staying at such a beautiful Villa in what we found to be our perfect location it's inevitable that a lot of time will be spent enjoying the Villa and pool.

Thank you Andrea and Martin for being so friendly and the perfect hosts, we would highly recommend a family holiday at Foz / Villa Lagoon.

Absolutely fabulous villa 🌞🌞🌞

  • 5 of 5

Stunning villa! Exactly as detailed.

I spent a long time searching & I am so glad this villa was the one we decided upon.

We stayed for a week (no-one wanted to leave), 6 adults & a child. It truly catered for all of our needs.

Every room was stunning with beautiful views over the lagoon. The pool was fabulous and we enjoyed chilling out on the terrace with a BBQ in the evenings or coming back to the villa after a meal in a local restaurant.

Andrea & Martin (owners) gave us a very warm welcome into their stunning home & left us a very generous welcome package of food & drink, which was very much enjoyed after a long day of traveling.

We hired cars for the week, which I would strongly recommend to enjoy the beautiful sights around the area (highly recommend Obidos & Buddha Eden) and for supermarket trips etc.

We would absolutely recommend this villa to our friends & family & we would all love to return.
