"Would definitely come back!"
Absolutely loved this villa and we were so sad when we had to come home. The villa itself is stunning and the pictures do not do it justice at all. There was pretty much everything you'd need (ex… More

"A great holiday in Portugal"
We loved this villa and this part of Portugal. Debbies directions for the villa were fine, we found it in the dark, no problems. On arrival we were impressed with the spec of this villa . It is, in our view, good value for money, very spacious , well appointed , with 4 free bikes and lots of beach towels provided. We paid alot more for a villa with James Villas 2 years ago and the villa was tiny with nothing provided (not even beach towels).This villa only has air con downstairs, however we hardly used it ,there was a lovely evening breeze even in August. The weather during the day was great for sunbathing but not too hot.The pool was great.
The beach which is only 15-20 mins bike ride or 5 mins in the car, is fantastic for kids. The lagoon mouth provides a lovely calm sea water lake which is great to swim in and is full of fish, so something to see if snorkelling, with loads of shallow water for smaller children to play and paddle in. The beach is clean and part of it has a life guard if you want the reassurance. There are a couple of cafes near by but it is not over developed. If you want the full atlantic experience then you can walk out of the mouth of the lagoon to a lovely beach with crashing waves etc. We did travel further up the coast but did not find a better beach.
We loved Obidos and Caldas de Rainha . The rowing lake in the park at Caldas was fun, the kids loved it. There is also a cafe in the park for coffee etc. The fruit and veg market was interesting and very cheap. Obidos has loads of places to eat out. You can go to Peniche and take a trip to an island ( Berlenga ),well worth doing, but limited things to do if you need to take a buggy as the best places on the island are not buggy accessable. There is also some good sea food to be had in Peniche but dont go to the places that tout for tourists and charge for fish by the kilo they are a rip off. Stick your head through the door and if all you can hear is Portugeuse then eat there.
We did not use the internet connection as we have a break from computers , mobiles etc when we are on holiday, it does us all good to have time out from our usually fairly hectic life.
We had a lovely time and all came back relaxed and refreshed which is what a holiday is for after all

The villa was perfect you couldn't ask for better host like debbie and Kim they were fantastic from booking to coming home. The villa was a bit out of the way but if you have a car there are plenty of things to see and do like the obidos medieval festival it was an amazing experience. Thank you so much we will certainly be back again

"Great Villa but off the beaten path if you are interested in sightseeing in Portugal"
Travelling in Portugal is confusing at times to say the least. As a North American, we are used to street signs, N/S/W/E directions and relatively straight roads. Unfortunately, there are none of th… More

"Excellent for its price/quality. Very comfortable, well equiped and relaxing home."
Very clean and spacious house in which we spent a very nice holiday with whole family (teenagers and grandpa). Nice and quite neighborhood. Ideal if you like to cycle (some nice hills).
Perfect communication with very helpful owners. Highly recommended.
