Beautiful and spacious property, idyllic location....you wont want to leave!
A stunning villa, in a gorgeous location....we truly did not want to leave! The villa was spacious and extremely well equipped, and the outside areas are extensive, with plenty of furniture around the huge pool, and the gardens. The BBQ and covered eating area is fantastic, and we loved cooking our freshly caught fish outdoors, (along with locally purchased prawns, kebabs, burgers, chicken and fish) and enjoying the stunning views to the Lagoon, Obidos and beyond. The villa is well equipped, with plenty of crockery, cutlery, glassware and pots and pans; we even baked plum sponges with fruit from the owner's orchard, and blitzed fruit to mix with the sparkling wine. The dining areas can accommodate 8 comfortably, as can the sitting room, although you'll probably spend most of your time outdoors.
The bedrooms are spacious and you are spoilt with powerful showers and hot water, whenever required. With four adults, two teenage boys and two teenage girls, the villa and outdoor areas accommodate all requirements. There is plenty of storage, hangers and really comfortable beds.
We were fortunate to arrive during the Obidos Medieval Festival, which was fantastic and we all loved visiting the town as it epitomised a bygone time...whilst enjoying the wine, mead and food at ridiculously low prices. We visited the water park (slides to suit all ages and abilities), enjoyed a 4 hour fishing trip from Peniche, and numerous visits to the Lagoon at Foz do Arelho, which provides miles of beautiful sands, blue seas, high waves and lifeguards. Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to enjoy the water sports offered, but checked out the facilities and the staff were all extremely helpful and friendly. We did have great walks down to Obidos alongside the aquaduct.
The supermarkets are well stocked and not too far from the villa, the restaurant in Obidos is a gem with great food, service, wines and jewellery! However, our absolute favourite was a new restaurant in the next village which was a great find by the boys, whilst out running. Our only disappointment that we didn't find it earlier!
You are guaranteed a great holiday at this villa. The owners responded to our questions promptly, prior to and during (only a small user error with the blinds!) our stay. The directions, and instruction manual were sent in a timely fashion and we felt very well looked after throughout the whole process. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us all... xx
Property was great location, well equipped and perfect for families.
We had a great holiday at Casa dos Pinheiros. The villa is a great size with 4 bedrooms, large kitchen diner and comfortable living room.
The pool was a great size which we all loved and appreciated on the very hot days.
The views from the villa are great and with a lovely medieval town nearby which was perfect for history and gift shopping.
Also a supermarket was very close and there was lots to see and do in the local area.
The villa was well equipped which we found perfect for home cooking and bar-b-q’s.
Thank you for your lovely review. We try so hard to ensure our guests are happy and create a home from home for them. Your comments make the effort worthwhile and we hope to see you again in the future.
Wonderful villa in excellent location
This villa is beautiful.
It has a lovely pool and garden and for those who want to stay at home and relax it has a very well equipped kitchen as well as outside cooking facilities.
It was perfectly situated for the relaxing holiday we wanted but it also within a 20-30 min walk of the historic walled town of Obidos with it’s lovely bars and restaurants.
If you want the beach you will need a car but we found hire costs in Portugal much lower than other countries and of course you can then explore further afield.
Final tip; don’t overlook the village restaurant which was very friendly and served lovely food and wine at good prices.
The villa was wonderful and beautifully equipped with modern well maintained amenities
The owners were great and responded quickly to the booking request and subsequent questions. They offered help and advice a on things to do an see, car hire and flights.
The villa and gardens are the real star though. The view when arriving and walking round to the pool terrace was spectacular. You can see for miles! The sea, Óbidos (medieval world heritage town) the lagoon and even the islands on a clear day. We had s lovely time and will be back next year! Thank you so much 😊
The best holiday we have ever had, what a place!
The couple who own this dream house were just so lovely and helpful. they backed this up with the view when we arrived! you walk round the back of the house to get in and your jaw hits the floor, the view is breathtaking. the house has more kitchen stuff than we have at home and would please even the most ardent chef! the pool was the real highlight though 12m of warm clear water the kids just lived in :-)) the area is beautiful and the beaches deserted and breathtaking. Obidos is like stepping back in time. We can only dream of owning a place like this but will settle for a return trip next year! Please :-))

I can highly recommend this holiday villa......hope to visit again in the future. 😃
