About Quinta do Bom Vento (QBV)
After living for almost 20 years above sailboats, we wanted to have some space and still enjoy the privacy and relaxed pace of life that we have enjoyed afloat. Although we bought the smallholding of QBV over 10 years ago it has been a long term conversion and only opened this year ie 2016.
Quinta do Bom Vento (QBV) purchased this Farmhouse in 2005
Why Quinta do Bom Vento (QBV) chose Municipality of Obidos
We have made landfall in Bom Vento which is ironic as it means good wind and have named all the rental properties in our small holding after bodies of water in which we have sailed in. Portugal has been home to some of the most prominent seafaring explorers ever and we love this link with maritime history. Although we had initially considered a oroperty with a seaview we fell in love with the valley vistas. With a number of beaches easily accessible within 25 minutes and without the maritime fog, and over 4 acres of our own wooded valley to stretch our legs, we feel very fortunate to live here . Particularly compounded with the warmth and welcome of the Portuguese people.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Privacy and peace, yet easily accessible to all the delights of the Silver Coast. Each of our quintinhas have their own character and individuality but they all provide very comfortable unique spaces to truly offer a relaxing home away from home with Portuguese traditional touches and splashes of luxury too!

Faultless accommodation, with superb hosts in a beautiful rural setting
Our expectations were exceeded! We arrived to warm greetings, a fridge full of food and a roast chicken! The accommodation was superb with great attention to detail. From the lounge and the terrace we enjoyed wonderful panoramic views across the surrounding countryside.
We stayed a week and found plenty to do including trips to Obidos, Buddha Eden, the coast and mountains and windmills inland - as well as walking in the extensive grounds of QBV.
All in all, the best self-catering accommodation that we have ever stayed in!
Och what a faultless review - thank you so much! Obviously we are delighted that you enjoyed your week with us so much and really hope you return some time:)
We had a wonderful stay. The cottage was pristine, the views lovely, and the owners warm and very kind. When we arrived, we found a fully stocked refrigerator. There was no need to leave, except that there were things to see and do. The ocean was close by, Obidos around the corner and historic monasteries and convents to wander. My husband and I stay at many vacation homes as we travel and we both agreed this was the best. I highly recommend.
We are obviously delighted to receive such a fabulous review, but more importantly that you enjoyed your stay at Quinta do Bom Vento so much. It is particularly humbling for us to receive these comments when we note what well seasoned travellers you are. We really appreciate your review and hope we can lure you back to The Atlantic in the future - THANK YOU.
WOW! Everything you could ask for ... and MORE!
If you are looking at a rental property near Obidos, either for a short term or a longer stay, there’s no point in checking anything else out. You’ve found the best there is, in all respects.
Sam & Rich were the most welcoming hosts of any we have ever encountered in our travels. From the first e-mails when we booked, they offered help if wanted/needed and gave us wonderful suggestions of places to visit, not just in Obidos but throughout the country. All this information has been invaluable and has enriched our visit to Portugal.
The Atlantic was spacious, beautiful, well laid out, everything one could need/want all in a picturesque location. The apartment had the best stocked kitchen we’ve seen plus a truly amazing coffee machine. The hosts also provided a hand drawn map of local destinations - including roads, restaurants, tourist destinations, grocery stores, gas stations, local trails in the valley & more. Really helped us navigate the area.
In our experience, other rental properties don’t compare with QBV in many ways - atmosphere, location, views, comfort, amenities, support. It made for a memorable stay.
Elizabeth & David
WOW! How do we respond to that (other than a flood of emotional tears). THANK YOU soooo much Elizabeth & David - guests/friends now that we will never forget!
Great stay near Obidos!
We could not have asked for a nicer stay. Sam and Rich are warm and welcoming hosts. They've renovated an old farmhouse and outbuildings with loving care and attention to detail. Our apartment was comfortable, spacious and well equipped. The view was wonderful. The bed was super comfortable. We felt completely at home.
The property is 5-10 minutes from the Obidos parking lot and is set in a lovely agricultural valley with vineyards as well as pear and apple orchards.
Great location for day trips to the nearby coast, north to Tomar, Fatima, Batalha, Alcobaca to the north and Sintra to the south.
There are nearby restaurants. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is a nearby grocery for provisions.
We told Sam and Rich that they would need a crowbar to get us to leave. It nearly came to that! Would recommend highly to friends and family.
And we could not ask for nicer guests! Loved the crowbar comment - that really made us giggle. We are so pleased we met you but that was a long journey for such a short stay, we really hope you return for longer next time ok!
First class everything
From the minute that we arrived nothing was to much trouble for Richard and Sam. Every last detail seemed to have been considered, the welcome pack most certainly greatly appreciated following a long journey. The location is quiet and idyllic with many walks to be had. Short ride in to Obidos and surrounding towns. We spent a lovely five days there and would thoroughly recommend a visit, first class.
And what first class guests you are for posting such a lovely review! We love this area and are so glad you do too. Thank you for taking the time to post this review.

Merci Beaucoup! Yes time flies when you are enjoying yourselves and we loved that you used the Atlantic at QBV for your base exploring this area. We agree that it is the perfect base for exploring the beaches at Baleal, Peniche and Foz Do Arelho was well as an easy trip to Lisbon and Sintra and of course Obidos and Buddha Eden. We loved the fact that you joined in the local village festivities too - the Pear and Wine Festival in Bombarral is a highlight on our calendar. Your entire family were a pleasure to spend time with, and we really do hope you return again.
We are only 7km in one direction from medieval Obidos and 7km in the other direction lies Buddha Eden the largest oriental garden in Europe . Obidos Lagoon and beach at Foz do Arelho or fishing village of Peniche all within 25 minutes..
Choice of world class surfing spots 25 minutes away too - Supertubos, Baleal, Ferrel.
Cinemas, major shopping at Caldas da Rainha in under 20 minutes or if you want to head to the capital with all its major siteseeing attractions that is less than an hour away, by car or easy bus link too.
