Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
A beautifully well presented, generously proportioned, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom detached villa finished to a high standard with its own swimming pool, garage and landscaped private garden all set in beautiful surroundings. A concierge service is available on request offering food shopping, home cooked meals, beauty therapy and babysitting.
Pinhal Village is located in Perola da Lagoa on the south western corner of the Obidos Lagoon, on Portugal's Silver Coast. It is just 45 minutes drive from the cool and sophisticated capital Lisbon and within easy reach of great amenities, atmospheric Medieval towns, authentic fishing villages, stunning scenery and world class golfing. The Obidos Lagoon forms a large coastal inlet from the Atlantic offering sheltered swimming for families and great sailing and surfing opportunities. It has the best of both worlds: wild Atlantic vistas of crashing waves and impressive cliffs, coupled with family friendly sandy beaches. The Lagoon is surrounded by a cool green forest nature reserve and is blessed with truly breathtaking views.
Cortico Beach is only a five minute drive/10 minute walk from the villa and has stunning sandy beaches and interesting inlets. The Corsico Seafood Restaurant that perches on the cliff at the point where the Lagoon meets the ocean is stunning. The views from this restaurant are spectacular. Sit on the leather sofas on the decked veranda and enjoy the scenery.
GOLF: The new Donald Steel designed Bom Sucesso is less than a 5 minute drive. World renowned championship golf course Praia D'el Rey is a 10 minute drive.
Obidos is the nearby medival town situated within castle walls. It is a truely special place, incredibly pretty but full of culture and history. Wander along the castle walls to get a fantastic rooftop view of the town. Visit the many authentic local bars and restaurants scattered along the cobbled streets. Taste the traditional cherry liquor served in miniature chocolate cups. Experience the ambience and decadence of 13th century St Peter's church and witness a Portuguese wedding!
Foz is a 20 minute drive away but well worth a visit. It sits on the other side of the Lagoon. Rustic beach cafes are positioned along the beachside. The views of the estuary from any one of these cafes are spectacular! The atmosphere is chilled and quiet. There are also a couple of fish restaurants on this stretch worth a visit serving the best fresh sea bass, mackerel or sardines. The beach is vast, sandy and great for the children.
My family and I feel very lucky to have discovered this very special part of the world. It really is a great place to relax and enjoy spectacular scenery. A real get away!
