About the owner: I own the villa and I love spending time at the house with my family, which includes my young son and my parents. Betwen us all we spend at least 4 weeks a year there and is the perfect place to go to escape from the city and enjoy the space, peace and fantastic weather.
Why the Owner Chose Caldas Da Rainha:
I wanted a house with a lot of space, light, its own pool and close to beautiful beaches and landscapes. I also wanted somewhere I could make our own, making imporvements to the gardens and pool, and customising the interior with our own features. The location was ideal as can be used as a base to explore the Obidos lagoon and the Silver Coast, the nearby towns and villages, and not to mention the golf courses! The area has a real family feel to it, is predominantly locals and regular visitors and is not at all overdeveloped. The outside space and private pool means there is always the option of just staying at home and relaxing if we want a break from the beach or exploring the area.
