We had a wonderful time in this large and comfortable house that easily accommodated two parents, two small children, and three grandparents! The house is generally well equipped and clean (the owners live there a good fraction of the year, which is always a good sign...). There is two en-suite rooms, plus one bathroom and toilets. The region is cooler than other places in Portugal, which is appreciable when it comes to sleeping (we didn't need the air conditioning, although the house is fully equipped), and at the same time close to many landmarks (Batalha, Alcobaça, and of course Lisbon). I should add that the owner was very responsive and gave us useful tips, in particular the fruit market in Caldas da Rainha, the neighbouring town, which is a must!
The villa was huge...much bigger than we expected. It was spotlessly clean with all mod cons and a massive tv and excellent wifi. Although the area around the pool is small it is adequate and is south west facing and you can sunbathe until 7pm. There is also a spacious seating area outside the kitchen with lovely plants.
The bed was comfy, there was constant hot water and the sofa was great for relaxing on at the end of a busy day.
We were able to visit Caldas de Rainha, Obidos, Buddha eden garden, Baltalha monastery, Alcobaca, Nazare and Sao Mourinha de Porto. All within a 30 min drive.
All the nearby restaurants were great and extremely good value for money. It is also located 5 mins drive from 4 main supermarkets.
We had a great holiday and would thoroughly recommend this villa.
We had a great time. The house was amazing, and well located, clean and comfortable, the kitchen had everything, it was easy to get to following the instructions given. Overall very happy, hope we can come back soon.
What you see in the photos does not do this property justice. The house was even nicer in person. The house is located in a very residential area, extremely quiet. Everything was exactly as described on the website. The owners were most gracious and helped a lot with any questions we had. The property is located close to Obidos and not far from the beach. It was also a good location for many day trips we did. It was nice to arrive back to the house after a hectic day and just sit on the patio and relax.
