The Costa de Prata/Silver Coast/Central Portugal region
The area enjoys a mild climate with all year round sunshine making it the perfect holiday destination in all seasons. It has beautiful scenery that includes pristine white sandy beaches and lush, green, tree lined hillsides. There are a number of places to visit including a trio of UNESCO world heritage sites at Alcobaca, Tomar and Bathala; the fishing town of Peniche, the surf beaches of Baleal, the perfect cove of Sao Martinho do Porto and the walled medieval town of Obidos. It is also well placed for visiting Lisbon and Sintra. The area is perfect for a number of activities such as golf, surfing, cycling, fishing and sailing.
The Obidos / Bom Sucesso area
Obidos is the pride of the region, a fantastically preserved medieval walled town. Its castle, cobbled streets, beautiful churches and whitewashed houses covered in flowers are like something out of a picture book. It has many cultural events including an annual chocolate festival in February.
The Obidos Lagoon is a peaceful oasis that is perfect for an evening stroll, for exploring on the new cycle path (4 mountain biks available with villa) or for safe swimming from the inshore beach.
The Bom Sucesso area is one of Europe’s finest for golf including both the Bom Sucesso course itself (opened in 2008) and the Praia del Rey course that is rated as one of Europe’s finest and that has recently hosted the Portuguese open. Both courses are within 10 minutes of the villa and discounts are available for those staying locally.

We spent a fantastic two weeks at this villa. It is huge, certainly large enough for for a family. The surrounding area is out of this world.

The villa is in a quiet location so as the owner states, a car is essential but this also meant that it is very relaxing.We walked to the resturants alone the lagoon which as about half an hour on foot. There are a couple of good fish resturants and some pizza type places there. The mosquitoes do come out along the lagoon area in the evening though so wear insect repellant. The pool man recommended a place to eat which is on the road around Obidos. If you keep going past the old town you will come to a really big church on your left. It has a car aprk in front of it. If you park in there and walk to the left you will find the snack bar which serves traditional Portugese food at great prices. We were having starters, drinks and as much food as we could eat for about 47 euros for the four of us.
A man comes round with bread in a van each morning but apart from that you would need to drive to a local supermarket. These are also very good value. I would recommend the custard tarts!!
The villa is very spacious and clean. It is very well equipped for those who want to cook there and even has things to take your picnic out with you.
There are plenty of places to visit and the owners have loads of information in the villa for you to plan trips out. We intended to do more but relaxing by the pool won the draw on more days than not!.
We would definitely recommend the villa and the area of Portugal. We hope to return some time. We couldn't believe that we had found somewhere that is so cheap in the euro zone and unspoilt by tourism. If you want a slice of the real Portugal and a stay in a lovely, roomy villa this is the place for you!
