Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Richard & Annika,



from the speed and content of your first response to the detail given in your booking form and manual/directions, we knew we were in for a great holiday. nothing could prepare us however, for the spectacular property and views (not to mention the giant heated pool!) we encountered. the house has so much space and is full of modern equipment and very luxury you could imagine.



The area is quite spectacular with the beach being the highlight and to be honest the most spectacular we have ever seen! Obidos is like stepping back in time to an unspoilt medieval era!



thank you so much for all your help and advice on where to go, what to see and where & what to eat!



lovely, lovely lovely! :-)) (see you next year)

Wonderful holiday house

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 2 adults and 5 children (aged between 3 and 10) stayed at this wonderful house in early July 2017. From before we booked, the owner, Richard Allen, was extremely responsive to emails and, while we were there, to texts. The information booklet he provided was invaluable throughout our stay, starting with directions for getting to the house from the airport. While the weather was a bit cooler than normal, that didn't stop our boys from getting full use of the fabulous pool. The outdoor area is fantastic and completely safe for young children who like to run around. Everything you could need to enjoy the pool and the beach is provided. The house itself was very roomy and clean and comfortable. Having sky and BBC/itv on satellite made it a home from home. Anything you need is in the kitchen and there was more than enough room for everyone to sit and eat comfortably. Obidos town, inside the castle walls was pure old world Europe and we would have liked to spend more time there, but the young children weren't as impressed lol. The location was perfect for us to explore Lisbon to the south, the gorgeous coast from Nazare to Foz, and north up to Fatima. All in all, a wonderful place to spend a holiday and we would recommend it to anyone looking for an idyllic holiday house off the tourist path. Plenty to do and a nice quiet house with a fab pool to relax in after. Thank you to the Allens.

Lovely villa, great location and view, big pool

  • 5 of 5

Obviously a well loved holiday home and with good reason. Cupboards stocked with a few essentials and some nice surprises from previous guests, left similar in return for the next visitors. Local restaurant is a short walk and serves good local dishes. Obidos a short drive or a brisk 30 minutes downhill with supermarket, more restaurants, castle, shops. Easy access to beaches, Buddha Eden, Obidos medieval festival, historic buildings and everything else the region has to offer. Lisbon, Sintra etc. about an hour's drive. Waterparks near Peniche and Nazare, although we didn't bother as the pool was enough for us.

Breeze from the Atlantic kept the temperature from reaching uncomfortable heights. You can see if Foz and Obidos lagoon are cloudy or sunny from the patio so visit or not according to preference.

Had no problems at all and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

What a place!! A hidden gem with amazing facilities and views

  • 5 of 5

We are not one for reviews and generally don't complete them but, this house and the lovely people that own it were the reason we have reviewed this holiday. The house pool and views are truly wonderful and with so much to do and seen in the area including the beaches and Obidos just put the icing on the cake. The owners were so helpful and friendly and could not do enough to help. Our son lost his ball on the roof (our fault) but the owners arranged a guy to bring a ladder and get it down the same day!! Thanks so much for a truly memorable holiday. N, L, C, T and family.

Lovely comfortable home

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this lovely home for 2 weeks with our

3 girls and their grandmother.

The house is situated on top of the a hill with an amazing view of the medival town of Obidos.

The house was clean ,comfortable and spacious for our family.

Richard the owner, has ensured that the house has everything that one would need, even items for a beach holiday. We had the pleasure of using the buckets, spades, chairs, beach umbrellas,nets, etc with only one stipulation "to leave them in good order on our departure". The house also has the added benefit of Wifi & Satellite TV with UK channels.

We loved the quietness of the area. The girls throughly enjoyed the large garden and we all loved the pool which had the added bonus of pool toys & floaters.

This part of Portugal is "undiscovered" . The many beaches are stunning and clean. One can enjoy it without the hordes of tourists. We loved the culture of Portugal. We visited all the spots recommended by the owner and particularly loved the Obidos lagoon.

Obidos town itself is a gem. We enjoyed it so much and walked the around the town on numerous occasions during our stay.

We were also able to visit Lisbon as well, as we stayed for a full 2 weeks in Obidos.

A previous negative view of the house was mean spirited and totally unnecessary in my opinion.

The house is lovely and a home away from home. Our stay was totally relaxing and we created pricless memories here.

We absolutely loved our stay in your home & would defintely recommend it to explore this beautiful part of Portugal.

A Beautiful Villa with stunning views and an great pool.

  • 5 of 5

First impressions are everything, so when my family and I arrived and walked around the back to begin our holiday, we were amazed by the view and the pool! we have never stayed in a villa with such a huge pool, it must be nearly 12m long! then we looked over the pool to the views, obidos a medieval walled town, the lagoon the hills and the sea and islands in the far distance. We were already taken a back even before we entered the villa. When we did the impression continued to get even better, the space and facilities were again better than any other rental property we have had (we have been renting for 12 years) the 3 main bedrooms were generous and the 4th bedroom although much smaller was fine for the kids. The villa has a huge kitchen and dining area and large lounge with very comfortable sofas and chairs. the pool has 6 large and very comfy loungers and there are ample chairs and tables to sit at including our best loved area.....the BBQ. whoever thought this one out was right on the money, the solid marble effect table and benches next to the great big chimney style BBQ were perfect and all under a lovely tiled and wood roof, brilliant! we spent many hours here in the day and especially at night.

The area is full of things to do and Obidos is a gem with many bars restaurants and churches and a castle etc. the beach is stunning and the lagoon great for safe swimming for the kids. the local restaurant is great and the owners of the villa are obviously well known to the owners of the restaurant as we were treated like royalty on both occasions we ate there.

The wine route is also a great day out as is the water park in Peniche http://www.sportagua.com and if you want a special meal with views that will blow you away go to http://naudoscorvos.pt/pt it is genuinely breath taking but ask to sit out on the terrace!

We will definitely be back next year!
