What a great villa! Great location, great quality!

  • 5 of 5

When we got to the villa - it was just like the photos and we knew we had arrived at a great place. We had a party of 6 - immediate family of 4 plus a new fiancee and a friend. The accommodation was perfect. The road outside is quiet and the villa is a short walk into the centre of the village, with restaurants, cafe's and Trombone cocktail bar and Jazz cafe within a 5 minute stroll. Some great restaurants within a 5 minute stroll and only a 15-20 minute walk to the beach or a 5 minute drive to the watersports area - paddleboards, kite surfing, hobie catamaran, kayaks - all reasonably priced. The villa is spacious, clean, has 3 good rooms (all en-suite), is fully equipped and the lounge area has loads of room. We had a tiny issue over the initial villa set-up (bedding etc) but the local management were on hand to sort it within the hour. Really efficient. We have stayed at a few places with Owners Direct - but this has to be one of the best. Fully recommended.

Myself and three friends (the golden girls) booked this villa for a week in September 2014. It was truly a wonderful experience. The villa is beautiful and well maintained. We did a lot of day tours to nearby towns all within a short distance and each one outdid the previous. I would highly recommend calling to the local tourist information office, they are very helpful and eager to share local history and suggest places to visit. Local restaurants are a plenty and the food it top notch and you will not believe it when you are presented with your bill, our average spend for four with wine was 12euro per head, honestly!!!!

I really want to go back very soon.

Not finished yet !!!

  • 5 of 5

As you can all see, I ran out of characters to write my review, it just goes to show that there is too much to say about this villa and it's location. I wanted to finish off by saying how accommodating the owners have been, how professional they are in their approach to customers and how they take pride in maintaining their Portuguese home. So much more to say .... but I think you all need to go and find out for yourselves what a magical place this is !

Would HIGHLY recommend

  • 5 of 5

We have been travelling to Foz do Arelho for our summer holidays for the last 8 years. We have had the privilege of staying in this villa in 2007 and 2008 but have since visited many times since. We made a recommendation to our friends for 2009 (a family of 4) who thoroughly enjoyed their stay. The villa is extremely well maintained and has everything that you need to enjoy your summer holiday. If you have small children, you need to look no further. The layout of the accommodation is such that it is safe and secure so mummy and daddy are able to have some much deserved 'sit down' time whilst being able to enjoy what the children are doing. It's location is second to none ! Just outside of the village, the villa enjoys the most gorgeous view, feeling like you are a million miles away from everything but only a 5 minute walk to the village square. The village of Foz has all the amenities that you would seek. Bank, bakery, butcher, cafes, restaurants, pharmacy, and most of all extremely friendly and welcoming local people. The beach at Foz boasts the most amazing lagoon which offers a more safe environment for younger children whilst at the furthest point you can have the 'big waves' to enjoy your sporting activities. Lots of activities are organised on the beach during the summer months as the 'festive' season gets underway. Lots of places to eat, bars and cafes to enjoy sundowner time - it really does have the most dramatic backdrop that could never disappoint. Most foods are available and if they don't have it on the menu, they have cooked it for us. There is also a surf school located at the end of the lagoon where children/adults can take part in all sorts of water sports. If you are lucky enough to be there at the end of August their local 'festive' takes place. They decorate the square and so much goes on down at the beach - it's a must to experience. There is a lot more to do within a half hour drive-time - water park, shopping in Caldas, Obidos, Go-Karting, Ten pin bowling, Sao Martinho (where they have the most amazing inflatable assault course set up in the bay) and much more. For those of you who are walkers - look no further than this villa ! It is located so that you can go walking each day and find a different route for your walk. Perfectly placed. There is also availability to 'rent-a-bike' in the village. Only reason not stayed here every year is because our holiday dates clash with the owners. Would highly recommend.

Compelled to write my first review!

  • 5 of 5

Although I read and take on board reviews, I have never felt compelled to write my own on either properties or resorts. In addition, the world is a big place and we don't like going back to the same place.

Foz Do Arelho and this particular villa are both exceptions to this rule and that in itself is an indication of how much we recommend and endorse this holiday home.

The villa is one where you instantly feel at home. It is comfortable, spacious and well fitted out. The external space is a joy to use and our children have loved having the pool directly outside.

From the moment you drive through the electric gates, you feel that you are in a place where you can relax and unwind and children can safely run around and enjoy themselves. The villa has a selection of sun traps and shady boltholes where you can socialise around the pool or enjoy some quiet relaxation.

Foz Do Arelho is a great holiday destination for adults and children alike. We have been here three times now and find that the superb sandy beach and nearby restaurants (both 10 minutes stroll from the villa) are what makes this such an enjoyable place to be.

Although close to shops, bars and restaurants the villa is in a quiet and relaxed location where you overlook fields and hills. The other residents in the nearby villas are all so friendly and welcoming that you feel part of a little community the moment you arrive.

We have loved spending our valuable holiday time in this villa and hope that this review wont make it so busy that we find it hard to book in again for our next holiday!

Car: recommended


The beach of Foz Do Arelho has two sections, the lagoon section is really safe for children to swim also and very beautiful, the Atlantic side is a surfer’s haven and is patrolled by lifeguards. I would recommend you only swim here if you are a very competent swimmer. The beach is 5 minute drive and can be reached in 10/15 minutes walking. The next beach nearest to the villa is San Martinho Do Porto which is a 10 minute drive away.


Lisbon Airport can be reached in 50 minutes. Porto in 2.5 hours.


Foz Do Arelho village is a 5 minute stroll away. The nearest town is Caldas Da Rainha and is a 10 minute drive away. Here you will find restaurants, shopping centres and large supermarkets.

Further Details:

Within easy reach of the villa by car lie the famous medieval spa baths at Caldas da Rainha and the impressive 13th Century monasteries at Alcobaca and Batalha. Most spectacular, however, is the medieval walled town of Obidos, a national monument dating back to the Moorish occupation of Portugal and now a UNESCO protected site. An hour’s drive south will put you in the environs of Lisbon, Cascais and Sintra, all of which are well worth a visit. There are wonderful facilities for water sports at the stunning beach at Foz. A new Aqua park at Nazare is within a short drive away. Wind surfing at the nearby resorts of Sao Martinho and Peniche.
