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.

Great setting, lovely house and something for everyone.

  • 5 of 5

For starters I'd like to thank Richard and Annika for helping us and being reachable prior to and during our stay. The house and location was perfect for us with the lovely town of obidos only a 10-15 min walk away and also some fantastic beaches and golf courses only around the corner. The guide book was very helpful and the local restaurant a great recommendation. I look forward to returning in the not to distant future.

Thanks again D&K McNally

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.
