Old World Charm - Living History
Cristina and Eduardo have lovingly preserved and restored their family home creating an authentic Portuguese experience for the guests. This large and multi-roomed home is comfortable, clean and steeped in family history. Located near Óbidos in the village of Sobral da Lagoa, the house is a great location to enjoy the surrounding area or just stay hang around to relax in the lovely garden and pool. We enjoyed walking around the village, hearing the church bells ring on the hour and soaking up the real Portugal. The little store around the corner is worth a visit. The store sells local produce and serves up excellent coffee and lots atmosphere. Cristina and Eduardo were friendly and shared the history of their family and home which was very interesting. We recommend the house, local and hosts without reservation.
Dear Shirlene and friends,
Firstly let us thank you very much for your most kind words about our house, as well as for being such wonderful guests. We rejoiced that you all grasped in so short a time the deep meaning that Casa do Sobral has had for next to 3 centuries, and still does have in our family’s history, precisely why we decided to share it with our guests.
Pity you stayed for so short a time, though we surely do hope you will be around here again for a longer séjour as soon as possible.
Best regards, Cristina
12 wonderful days in a peaceful place.
Cristina and Eduardo were wonderful and helpful hosts. Their historic and beautiful property is located in Sobral da Lagoa small village located about 4km from the Obidos. We used local transportation ( mostly buses and occasional the taxi) to get around.The village has a general store / cafe where we could get all our necessary supplies and mix with the friendly locals.The house in Sobral is beautifully maintained, and the garden setting, buildings and pool allowed us to have a most a restful and enjoyable holiday. Although Obidos is the most noted place in the area, we particularly enjoyed Caldas da Rainha, with it's history,daily market, shops and great restaurants.
Again many thanks to Cristina and Edouardo for their wonderful home and property enabling us to have an unforgettable time.

nice villa in quiet village
The owners of this property are lovely people and very helpful, welcoming and extremely caring. The house is spacious and has many rooms, it was actually too big for the 4 of us, however the interior would improve in our opinion if the furniture would be updated. The outdoor area and garden and pool are great. The church bells are loud (across the street). The kids loved praia do Foz do Arelho the best (water freezing cold though).There's plenty of things to do & visit in the surrounding area.
Casa do Sobral was ideal for our family holiday
The house was perfect for our needs - very comfortable, spacious and with the most beautiful garden and accompanying, very private and much appreciated swimming pool. The hosts, Cristina and Edouardo, were delightful, attentive and very welcoming. The village was small and peaceful and very well located for a range of visits to nearby spots - the wonderful beach at Foz D'Arelho, Obidos, Caldas - with its fantastic ceramics and cycling museum - and, a bit further afield, Sintra, Cascais - home of the stunning Paula Rego gallery - and Lisbon.
Dear Neil and Family;
We enjoyed very much having you as guests at Casa do Sobral. We could not have hoped for better guests, and we are delighted that you interpreted rather well the spirit and purpose of the property.
It was a nest to our family for 250 years, and since we moved out, it did seem a waste not to share it with people such as yourselves, thus the reason why we decided to convert Casa do Sobral into a Rural House Rental.
Many thanks for your valued review and hope to see you all here again, sometime in the future.
This home was a highlight in our trip...a true, authentic taste of Portugal. Christina & Eduardo were gracious and welcoming - concerned with our every need from the amenities in the villa to ensuring we had all the information we needed to experience the surrounding areas. It's a very comfortable house with washing machine, dishwasher, and all equipments you need for cooking. And there is also a barbecue. And of course a swimming pool with deckchairs
We met a heavily laden burrow coming up the street in the delightful village. All the surrounding areas are well worth the time you should take to explore...exceptional in every way - true Portugal - the Nazare beach and village was unforgettable. Many thanks to Christina and Eduardo for sharing this treasure with us.
Charmante maison confortable et bien équipée
Cette maison traditionnelle était parfaite pour nous (2 adultes + enfants de 3, 9 et 11 ans). Elle est bien équipée, confortable et pratique. La piscine est très agréable et a ravi les enfants (et les grands). Le jardin est un havre de paix réservant des surprises tous les jours par la variété des plantes et fleurs. Cristina et Eduardo forment un couple charmant qui a été aux petits soins pour s'assurer que l'on passe un bon séjour. Un grand merci à eux ! La région est magnifique et il nous tarde de revenir !
L'accès à la piscine est sécurisé par des murs et une barrière.
Le village est calme et dispose d'une appréciable petite épicerie.
Nous avons été enchanté de vous recevoir, et vos adorables enfants. Vous avez été des hôtes parfaits, três gentils et agréables. Nous sommes bien contents de savoir que vous avez aimé notre maison et son ambiance traditionnelle. J’ espère que vous revenez, vous serez très bienvenus. Merci beaucoup.
