About Mark Barks-Taylor
Hi. We are Mark and Jenny who are from Holmfirth and Nottingham respectively. Currently we live in Basel, Switzerland where Jenny works for a Swiss company and Mark is a Technical Sales Consultant. Buying this villa is a dream come true for us and we are really happy to share this with you. Our love for the outdoors the sun and golf has made the Silver Coast a perfect location for us. The Silver Coast is a real hidden gem with untouched landscapes, we first fell in love with the area whilst hiring a holiday villa like Villa Barko. We have named our villa after Jenny's maiden name with a Portuguese twist. We hope you enjoy the villa and the area as much as we do. We offer a local representative and we can assure you of a completely trustworthy and reliable service at all times.

What makes this Villa unique
We love the peacefulness that Villa Barko offers. We think its perfectly located, being part of a select development of 10 villas in a traditional Portuguese village and only 5 mins drive from the gorgeous Medieval town of Obidos. The location offers fast access to the beautiful expansive untouched beaches and coastline as well as the numerous high standard golf courses. The location of the villa allows access to all three golf courses within 20 mins drive, this was a real selling point to us as we love golf. As we also enjoy a glass of wine or two and fine cuisine, we are pleased to have discovered some wonderful traditional restaurants in Obidos and further afield. Fish restaurants are particularly good and we have left our recommendations in the villa.

Perfect villa for a family based holiday
This was our third visit and we love it!
It’s perfectly equipped for a quality family holiday,beautifully appointed with plenty of space. We really enjoyed Baleal beach (one of the best surfing beaches in the world) and visiting Peniche. Obidos is well worth a visit as is Foz do Arelho,Martinho and Nazare. Jackie
The accommodation is spacious, modern, clean, comfortable and very well equipped. It is in a quiet location, but close to the lovely village of Obidos and main roads for access to the coast and other parts of the region. Great location if you play golf, and fantastic beaches (Baleal) if you don't. Also only an hour from Lisbon so getting there is very easy. Very helpful local manager. Prompt and helpful responses from the owner made booking and any queries all hassle free.
Villa Barko definitely has the wow factor, it's clean , comfortable and very well equipped, the location is quiet but you don't have to drive far to find plenty to do. We visited a few places included the beautiful Obidos, there are also plenty of lovely places to eat. We only had a week here but will book for longer next time 😃
5* luxuary villa
This was our second visit to Villa Barko and was even better than the first! We all aproved of the outdoor seating area and new comfy lounge chairs, and named it the executive lounge!!
Once again the villa was spotless, gardens beautifully maintained and every effort had been made by Charlie and Allison for our comfort and enjoyment.
The pool table and new inflatable pool vollyball net was very well used and provided the boys with much entertainment whilst the ladies were able to lie back and enjoy the beautiful weather either at the pool side or from the big over looking balcony.
All six of us had memorable holiday, the car hire was easy, excellent location with close by local amenities, weather great, lovely beaches especially foz beach, and lots of superb and welcoming resturants in obidos a beautiful medieval village.
Thank you for letting us use your villa and look forward to next years annual trip!!!
