Comfortable house in the heart of wine country
The five of us really enjoyed our stay here. The house is very well equipped and spacious. There is tons to do in the local area and it is very convenient to get around and get to the highway. Colin was very responsive to all our needs and gives you lots of information and advice on local attractions. The pool area is lovely and the upper balcony has wonderful views and is a great place to have a glass of wine. We would definitely consider staying here again and would highly recommend it.
Villa in a lovely quiet area with beautiful views.
This is a huge house! As a group of 6 adults, (3 sisters and husbands) there was plenty of room inside and outside of the house for us to have lots of time together as a family group and also apart if we needed it. The kitchen was well equipped, the beds were comfy and it was very clean. The heated pool was fantastic! There was a slight problem at the start of the holiday when the pool heating wasn't working but as soon as we contacted Charlie (the pool man) it was quickly sorted. There are loads of pool toys and a very well equipped games room. The upstairs balcony was perfect for evening drinks and the views are stunning!
Its a bit remote if you don't hire a car (we didn't want to drive, we went to relax) but Colin was very helpful in sending us information about transfers from the airport , David Taxi was spot on, he was there to collect us when we landed and again right on time to take us back to the airport.
We couldn't recommend Tony Oliveria, a local taxi driver highly enough, he's english speaking and very informative about the area. There is a local bus service which we used but there are only a couple of buses a day, so plan your trip in advance. We had some beautiful local walks through orchards and grape vines from the village, its difficult to get lost if you keep the beautiful village church in your sights! Obidos and Bombarral are both well worth visiting, apart from being beautiful, they have great supermarkets and very cheap food. The Portuguese wines are very reasonable, a 1litre carafe of very good red wine in a restaurant in Bombarral was very good value! The Buddha Eden gardens are a must to visit, so peaceful and calm and the food/wine is amazing! All in all, a wonderful relaxing holiday! Thank you Colin for all your help, before and during our trip, also to Charlie and Maria for your help whilst we were there. Obrigarda!
Stayed as a 2 family group of 8 and villa is perfect for giving the room needed to stay together but not on top of each other. It’s a well equipped kitchen and plenty of games/toys for kids in the games room. We had a couple of problems when we arrived , (a symptom of the villa being older & well used) with a ceiling light & door needing repair but Colin & Karen were great and sorted both very quickly. Also the pool needed attention more than once during our stay & again owners responded quickly. The pool man attended to switch heating back on each time & check water quality so although it was annoying I can’t fault their response.
The area is very rural and has beautiful views, in walking distance there is a small restaurant ‘ o largar’ I’d recommend. The food was delicious & service really friendly, they couldn’t do enough for us.
We enjoyed our holiday and happy with the villa, although found the area too remote with not enough variation for trips out & therefore wouldn’t return.
Thank you Colin & Karen... and pool man Charlie!
Thank you for your comments.
We were really sorry for the pool issues while you were at the house.
Before you arrived, we had a power trip to the pool heating and filter system which meant that they were not running for 3 days(The initial trip coincided with a storm and had not been a continuing problem). This resulted in a cloudier pool than normal and took a few days to return to normal clear conditions. During this period the pool remained in usable condition, ph levels being check by our pool man regularly. The power tripped a second time and we investigated further. By careful monitoring of the pools clarity and temperature it is now in perfect conditions. To prevent any further problems the pool filter system and sand filters are being replaced at the first opportunity in 3 days, between guests.
As to the more minor issues, a light shade retainer had to be replaced and we needed to adjust a door. First problems of their type but quickly resolved. Why do things come in threes?
I would like to put your comments in context as it is easy to assume that these events happen more frequently and do not get dealt with. This is not the case. We Try to spot any potential problems before they happen.
When we occasionally encounter a problem when a guest is at the house we respond quickly, as I think you recognised and resolve any issues as quickly as humanly possible. If work needs to done or money spent to correct an issue, it is provided. This is the first time we have received a 3 star review and of course we are very disappointed. Sometimes problems occur and equipment needs to fixed. It's a fact of life. The house is not old (14 years) and is well maintained. The string of 5 star reviews are there for a reason and we take pride in keeping our house in very good order.
Bombarral villa near Obidos
We (family of 7) had a truly Wonderful time at this gorgeous villa of Colin Rawles. The pool is Terrific, the house is gorgeous and very comfortable. It is near Lissabon and Obidos and near Baleal beach. Maria and Charlie were extremely helpful. We certainly recommend this house !
Thank you for the lovely review.
If you would like to stay again in the future, you will be more than welcome.
Peaceful rural setting for a truely relaxing holiday
We would all like to say thank you so much for your thoughtful provision both before our holiday and in the villa itself. We had a wonderful week - the pool was glorious (I'm glad we had it heated because it was quite cool and cloudy on some days) and we all enjoyed the table tennis, games and especially the coffee machine! We found the villa to be very comfortably and stylishly furnished and the view from the balcony was beautiful. We wanted for nothing.
Thank you for the feedback. It really is much appreciated.
Hope we can accommodate you again in the future.
Space for everyone
Colin's house was a fantastic place for my family and I to spend a week together. The space was comfortable and the benefit of numerous bedrooms with bathrooms was excellent.
The pool and games room gave us plenty of entertainment, and although the weather wasn't super warm, and we didn't use the pool heater, we found it warm enough for a daily swim. The book of tips also had some great walking and running routes included - something I've never had before, but was a brilliant addition to run off the extra calories from the pastel de natas!
The views from the balcony were lovely, and you barely saw another person.
The weather was not on our side unfortunately, but that didn't get in the way of a nice week in this lovely house.
Thank you Colin for being a fantastic host.
