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.

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.

Fantastic Villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this villa numerous times and it never disappoints. The villa is spacious ,clean and very well equipped ( even down to the beach gear and pool inflatables). It's great for relaxing in. The pool is big,very clean and we had lots of fun splashing about.

The villa is situated in the local village close to supermarkets with some very nice restaurants nearby. It's about 20 min walk to the beach.

The beach is huge and has the choice of magnificent waves on the Atlantic side or pleasant calm on the lagoon side. Sailing and Sufing schools are also present. The beach has the correct balance of facilities and choice of cafes/ restaurants without being overly commercialised.

We used a car to get about and explore the locality. Would recommend Bombarral, Obidos, Caldas da Rainha( for some shopping and coffee). The cliff walk in Foz has amazing views of the beach. Having a car will really add to your experience.

If you want a relaxed family holiday this is the place for you.

Hollywood-esque house!

  • 5 of 5

Really lovely villa. Spacious and glamorous, immaculate pool. Beautiful beach just 5 mins drive down the road. Had perfect weather and a lovely rest. Have to say, would highly recommend (but actually would like to keep it a secret to ensure that it is always free to book!)

Wonderfull villa 100km north of Lissabon

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfull stay in the spacious villa of Robert and Linda. We were with 5 (2 adults and 3 kids -> age 8-15). Everything was very clean when we arrived. All you need is available in the villa even windshields for the beach.

We had beautiful weather. There are enouch villages to visit and don't forget Lissabon (75 minute drive). We can recomment a visit to Buddha Eden in Bombarral (a big garden with immense buddha statues).

Then the Portugese people: very polite and helpful even in Lissabon! Go and eat at the restaurants in the village. We had a complete meal for 5 with desert for 60 euros. 1 cup of coffee for 60 eurocents, unbelievable!

Our hosts were great! When you've got a question just email Robert and Linda and you'll get a reply within 2 hours.

Conclusion: if you're looking for a nice place to stay in Portugal near Lissabon go and stay at this villa!!!!!!!

Great holiday with children

  • 5 of 5

The time we spent in Foz do Arelho was great. We recommend the place for holiday with children. The long and sandy beach is within walking distance (20 minutes), however it is more convenient to get there by car. The lagoon of Obidos is safe and perfect for children. There are plenty of fine restaurants near the beach. Within 50 kilometers there are lots of places worth sightseeing and Lisbon is only one hour to get to. The house is well maintained, and the layout is perfect for two families. Two big bedrooms with their own bathrooms and terraces and one smaller bedroom. The swimming pool is clean and big enough however you have to share it with all four houses. If you have enough of sun and swimming you can play table tennis.

Foz do Arelho in style

  • 5 of 5

The villa was in immaculate shape when we arrived. Roberts local representative was there with the key to meet us which was an even nicer introduction to the villa. The villa lacked absolutely nothing. When it came to amenities every little item that could be thought of was present, even right down to the ice cube trays for the freezer. Other than our trip to the local stores for groceries, everything we ever needed was there. An added bonus were the matching mountain bikes in the garage in the basement. The ping pong table in the basement entertained the boys as well as the adults for hours on end. The location was perfect as it was on a quiet street with beautiful views from the bedroom decks. within walking distance to every grocery store and restaurant in town and a very enjoyable walk to the beach.

Robert and his attention to details were another added bonus from the time we started inquiring about the villa. If you are looking for a beautiful villa with the convenience of home in a town that is centrally located to everything you could ever possibly want to see in Portugal, then this is the one.

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
