Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a terrific holiday. The accommodation was 1st class, very clean and well equipped for any type of weather & a good size pool. Although there were eight of us we did not feel squashed, due to the massive amount of space & outside balconies.Located in a beautiful part of Portugal we enjoyed exploring the various towns & landmarks although the children always managed to find a beach.

The area is ideal for all types of holiday whether you want to explore new places, relax by the sea or explore the countryside in the area. There are many places of interest most of which are within an hour or so drive from our villa.

Just a short distance away is the medieval walled village and castle of Obidos, here you will find plenty of cafes and restaurants. There is a path along the entire length of the walls which provide great views of the area, then a gentle wander through the small lanes.

Not far from Obidos is the Buddha Eden – Garden of Peace, it is a beautiful managed garden of 35 hectares (86 acres) of natural fields, lakes, manicured gardens and Buddhist statuary.

Peniche, San Martinho do Porto & Nazaré have some fantastic large beaches as well as fresh fish restaurants which deserve a visit. Not far from Peniche is the Berlengas nature reserve.

The pilgrimage town of Fatima & the natural caves at Grutas de Mira de Aireare are 1 hour approximately drive so both are easily done on the same day. The Templar city of Tomar is also in the same direction, this has a stunning round Templar church (12th century) of the Convent of the Order of Christ

There are many other towns with monasteries and palaces in the area, these include Alcobaça, Batalha, Mafra, Ourem, Sintra (there is too much to see in one day so worth a couple of trips), and Lisbon. Along the coast towards Lisbon are the beach towns of Ericeira, Estoril and Cascais

Very Enjoyable Stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a very enjoyable week in Foz Do Arelho. We found the villa immaculately clean with a high standard of facilities. The town was only a short walk away which meant going to the local shop/supermarket was very easy. We visited Obidos (a must) and made several trips to the fantastic beach. All in all, we had a great week with some fantastic weather. The owner of the villa was readily available in the run-up and made the trip infinitely easier with his quick communication and eagerness to make our trip the best it could be. I would highly recommend staying at the beautiful villa.

A large, quality villa

  • 5 of 5

Our 5th time over 10 years back in Foz and this has been the best villa we have rented. The size and comfort of the house is impressive and we felt so comfortable from the start. From the range of DVD's for that quiet night in with the family to the table tennis table and pool, this is simply an awesome villa for a family to rent.

It's near to food shops, restaurants, cafes , and bars, all of which are within easy walking distance.

The beach continues to be the biggest and best one that we have found in Europe.

Beautiful villa in a peaceful village

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Foz Do Arelho. The villa is beautiful, very nice rooms and bathrooms. Everything is so clean, you can just enjoy and relax from day one. Foz do Arelho is a very friendly village, with some nice restaurants. Try the take way chicken with cips from a small shop. Very good. Beach is in walking distance.

Thanks Linda and Robert to share this beautiful place wth us.

Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit. The test has to be would we go again? And we definitely would. The Villa is larger than the photographs show. The living areas, bedrooms and kitchen are spacious and light. Our three children loved the pool and the table tennis table. The beach equipment came in very handy, particularly the wind break. Another pleasant surprise was how close many cafes and restaurants were. Great choice too. Some of the service in the restaurants is slow at peak evening times, but we can't blame Robert or Linda for that. And the food quality made up for it.

We used the Villa as a base to explore the beaches right down to Ericeira. So many beautiful beaches with great facilities. Not forgetting the local beach at Foz,

We also had trips to Caldas, Obidos and Peniche. The water park at Peniche was good value. Supermarkets at Caldas very handy.

Robert answered any queries very quickly and helpfully. We would definitely recommend this Villa and would go back.
