Caldas Da Rainha villa description

This great villa, completed in 2009 and featured in February 2010's 'A Place in The Sun' magazine, is situated on a large private plot on a modern development with views over the nature reserve. It has a private pool (6m x 4m) and sleeps 6. There are 3 beautiful bedrooms – a double and 2 twins (with wooden floors and large balconies). The spacious open plan living/dining area is furnished in a contemporary style with Italian leather sofas and a 32” flat screen TV, DVD player and stereo. English FreeSat channels are available plus a library of DVDs. Large sliding doors open onto the terrace and pool allowing you to sit either in the shade or by the pool in the sun. There is a fully equipped kitchen and 3 bathrooms. Bed linen and towels are provided.

The villa is situated within a relaxing pine and eucalyptus forest and there's a fantastic Blue Flag family beach 20 minutes walk away, a cycle track and boardwalk around the lagoon and world class golf a short drive away. It's a great place!


Fabulous Golfing Location: Two of the regions top championship golf courses, Bom Sucesso and Praia D’El Rey are less than 10 minutes drive from the villa. Two further stunning courses, The Golden Eagle and The Campo Real are only a 20 minute drive away. A fifth golf resort, the magnificent Royal Obidos Golf Resort, is due to open by the end of 2011, which will be just 500m from the villa.

You can make significant saving on green fees for all these courses by booking in advance via online booking services

The Obidos Lagoon: The proximity of the stunning Obidos Lagoon to the villa (just 5 minutes walk) makes this location truly special and unique. When we visit the villa, no day feels complete without a stroll around the lagoon’s perimeter on the cycle path and boardwalk. The landscape is an ever-changing delight and one of the most tranquil and uplifting places I know.
Wild flowers, dune grasses and aquatic birds abound in this protected fragile ecosystem whilst fisherman’s huts and their traditional colourful boats (batieras) are a reminder that the lagoon is still a place of work for many locals.



Beautiful Beaches: You are spoilt for choice for fabulous beaches with several in the immediate area.
The closest beach is the huge Blue Flag beach near the mouth of the lagoon, Praia do Bom Sucesso, about 20 minutes walk (or 5 minutes by car) from the villa along the edge of the lagoon. The lagoon waters are calm, protected from the Atlantic waves and the whole family can swim safely here. There are a few restaurants and bars, a small grocery store, cafe and a few shops. The Rio Cortico restaurant has superb views from the top of the headland overlooking the beach. The Atlantic beach at the mouth of the lagoon around the headland has a backdrop of cliffs and is wild and rugged... perfect for a bracing walk.
Just 3 minutes drive away is the beautiful sheltered cove of Praia Rio Cortico with its great laid-back beach restaurant and bar serving the fresh catch of the day a 10 minutes drive brings you to the stunning Atlantic beach at Praia D’El Rey with a beach snack bar and 5* hotel facilities. The new hotel and clubhouse at the Royal Obidos Golf Resort both serve amazing top quality cuisine in cool, modern surroundings.

                  Obidos Lagoon Blue Flag Beach

                  Car: Recommended

                  Less than 1 hour’s drive from Lisbon Airport, the Silver Coast still retains a sense of being undiscovered and unspoiled. The villa at Pinhal Village is situated by the Obidos Lagoon – a large sheltered coastal inlet with its sweeping expanse of family-friendly Blue Flag beaches . A nature reserve surrounds the development with a network of trails and cycle paths around the lagoon.

                  The Silver coast is renowned for its medieval towns and authentic fishing villages. Close by is Obidos, a lovely walled town with great bars and restaurants and artisan’s shops lining its cobbled streets.

                  Explore the old fishing village of Peniche and sample the catch of the day in one of its many restaurants or watch the surfers from one of the great beach side cafes at Foz do Arelho (on the other side of the lagoon).

                  For golfers: The new Royal Obidos Golf Resort is less than 500m from the villa. The world class cliff-top Praia D'El Rey golf course and the new championship Bom Sucesso golf course are only a short drive away.

                  The Royal Obidos Golf Resort: 500m from villa. A wonderful new course designed by Seve Ballesteros. A beautiful course that will challenge players of all levels with cascading lakes and streams and a backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean. Clubhouse, restaurant, bar and pro-shop.

                  Golf: Praia D'El Rei: 10 minutes drive from villa. One of the most picturesque golf courses in Europe, set in extensive grounds of pine forest and undulating dunes with spectacular views over the Atlantic. The course is visually stunning and tremendously exciting to play. Designed by respected golf architect Cabell Robinson to be both challenging and fun for all to play.

                  Bom Sucesso: Less than 5 minutes drive from villa. Opened in 2008, this course takes full advantage of spectacular scenery and breathtaking views. Designed by Donald Steel, one of the most prestigious golf architects in the world.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  Why the Owner Chose Caldas Da Rainha:
                  The Obidos lagoon is a beautiful place to relax and it is still relatively undiscovered. The Blue Flag beach is huge and it is never crowded - even in August. There's no hi-rise development here, just local people, local food and a laid back atmosphere - all surrounded by a protected pine and eucalyptus nature reserve. Walking around the lagoon on the cycle path is a daily ritual for me and the scenery is ever-changing with wild flowers, birds, fishermen and people searching for clams - a local delicacy. The perfect place to relax and unwind.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  Portuguese beaches are renowned for their beauty. Many people are familiar with the rugged Atlantic coast however the Obidos lagoon is relatively unknown, even though it is the largest lagoon in Europe, and families can always find a calm, shallow place that is safe for children to play. It is such an easy going place and the local food and wine is cheap, plentiful and delicious... from a chilled beach or lagoon-side cafe to a treat at a 5* golf resort or an authentic restaurant in Obidos old town. We don't feel the need to rush around when we visit our villa but there's loads to see and do in the local area if you can drag yourself away from the pool and the beach.
