Excellent base for silver coast
No hesitation recommending the villa which had everything you would need-,the English speaking tv channels were a bonus for the World Cup coverage !! Gary was really helpful at all stages in the process. We had been to the Algarve before but this was our first time in this part of Portugal and we really liked it. With the age of our children we gravitated towards the beaches which were stunning. Rio Cortico beach, a five minute drive away, is quiet even in mid July. Most on the beach are locals and a five minute walk down the beach leaves you in splendid isolation. Baleal beach is 20 minutes away by car and is fantastic- full of life with people of all ages enjoying the surfing, swimming and restaurants. ‘O Febras ‘ restaurant at the Baleal Co-Op opposite the beach was a great recommendation- an innocuous looking restaurant with beautiful , huge, fresh grilled sea bass for €9.90. Our extended family did surf lessons on the beach and we loved it. The villa is within easy reach of the walled town of Óbidos, a UNESCO heritage site, and we were lucky to be there for the annual medieval festival. The villa’s location is rural so you will need a car to get to all places bar the headland at the end of the lagoon which is a 25 minute stroll away. There are a few well priced cafes and restaurants there. Breakfast in Bica da Lagoa was great value (65c for great coffee!) and the Rio Cortico restaurant at the top of the headland had some great fish dishes. The N’aldeia restaurant was also (generally) good. Note that the restaurants are a little out of the way and inventory is kept necessarily tight so they sell what’s available and fresh until they run out! There is also a baker who drives around the lagoon each morning selling freshly baked bread, which was great. So, in summary: the house is perfect, the area is lovely (although we know we only scratched the surface in terms of sights), the area is far less touristy than the Algarve and therefore eating out is much cheaper. Ps: the weather was mixed for the two weeks. I suspect this is unusual for this time of year but it definitely doesn’t get as hot here as it would further south (which would be a positive for many )
I am glad you all had a most enjoyable stay in my villa even though the weather was not quite as good as one would normally expect at this time of year .I make every effort to make my home very much a home from home and i am glad you found it met your requirements with a great deal of natural forest surround the area large unspoilt beaches and very reasonable cafes and restaurants at the mouth of Obidos Lagoon which is the largest natural lagoon in Portugal .I also find the locals very freindly andspeak English well as they learn it as a second language. Thanks again for choosing my villa to stay in and i hope to be able to wake you again in the future .
The property was ideal and the area was quiet and peaceful
Four of us stayed in the villa from May 19th.The property was clean and spacious and could comfortably accommodate an extra two people. The pool was of a good size and the gardens were well kept.The owner made sure that all the arrangements went smoothly and was available to answer any questions. The area was quiet, the lagoon was beautiful and there were some great surfing beaches nearby. Obidos and Fatima are both worth visiting and we also enjoyed a day in Lisbon. Nazarre has a great beach and is more of a traditional seaside resort.There are no shops near the property so be prepared to travel to the nearest supermarket. Overall we had an excellent holiday in a very interesting area.
Hi, Thankyou for your kind review and the comments contained there in and that you found the villa clean and well presented in a quiet peaceful position and liked the general area having had an excellent opportunity.I appreciate that the supermarket is a drive away and i was not sure whether you found the local shop in Vau village or in Bom Sucesso but generally the main supermarket offers a good variety of choice .
Thanks again for choosing my home to stay in and you would be welcome to stay again in the future.
Fabulous Villa ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Great Villa, plenty of space, air con & rooms. We spent 5 nights here as a group of 5 adults. Close to some superb Golf Courses & Beaches. Gary was a great host, always available for any info and happily extended our 3night stay to 5 nights with ease.
The Pool isn't heated but after a few hours with the sun out it was fine to use.
Thank you John for choosing my villa to stay in for part of your holiday and i was glade you enjoyed the villa and area so much that you decided to extend your stay and that i was able to accomadate. I like you also thoroughly enjoy the golf courses that are very close to hand and try where ever possible to stay and enjoy the relaxed environment .
I hopefully look forward to welcoming you back one day for an even longer stay.
A fantastic relaxing holiday, in a beautiful location
The house was lovely, exactly as shown on the pictures. The position was good, sunshine on the pool and garden all day, great for the lazy afternoons we spent around the pool. The house was clean on arrival and the pool was cleaned both mondays that we were there.
The area is beautiful, although a car is essential, we had many days out within a 20-30 minute drive to some of the most beautiful beaches, rio cortico about 5 minutes away is a beautiful cove and well worth a visit in the evening when it's quiet to watch the sunset. San Martinho about 30 minutes north a lovely sheltered beach with an inflatable assault course on the water, our teenage children loved it. Baleal beach near to péniche was fantastic, a bit of a surfers town,we hired body boards and wetsuits, the water can be pretty cold, was great fun.
We had a few days at the lagoon paddle boarding and kayaking, only 5 mins down the road and the restaurant there is great value for money.
The medieval festival in obidos was a great evening out. But id also recommend visiting in the daytime and walk around the castle walls....wear decent footwear.
Plenty to do in the area especially for us with teenage children.
Finally, from booking, Gary the owner has been incredibly helpful, he immediately responds emails, I have sent a few since I booked, and provides as much information and help as he can. The security deposit was refunded without a problem. I have no hesitation in recommending this villa, it really is in a beautiful place, but you need to be happy to drive a little.
Thanks Gary for renting it out to us. Just one minor suggestion, if a pool net had been provided, we would havehappily kept on top of it.
Thank you for your review which was much appreciated ; I have taken on board your small constructive suggestion which was positively helpful as one can always look to improve the facilities over all .I was naturally very pleased to hear you found my home meet very well your expectations and really very much enjoyed your stay in what I regard as a quiet peaceful setting which I try where ever possible spend time in personally .
Thanks again for choosing to stay in my home

Booking this villa with Gary was so easy and stress free, he was very friendly and answered all questions promptly.
The villa itself is well equipped and feels extremely homely. The extra little touches like the basket of beach towels, books etc really made it feel welcoming. We are not long back and going in October was just the relaxing holiday we needed. It was very quiet in the areas around the villa making for a peaceful holiday but also plenty to do round about. We also used the pool which was great to cool down in after a day exploring, it's an ideal size as it gets heated up from the sun.
We had pre-booked rental cars from the airport which I would highly recommend for this villa, it was so cheap and really gave you scope to explore the area. Gary was so helpful suggesting company's to go through and the directions he gave us to the villa were so informative it made driving a lot less stressful than I had anticipated.
There are so many nice towns around the area, visiting Obidus is a must. It is such a beautiful place with great building and history. Around the villa itself it only takes around a 4 minute walk to the lagoon with spectacular views. There is also a lot of activities to do around the area and we personally went to Peniche for surfing which I believe was a 20 minute drive, well worth it!! We had a great time. There is also a causeway here which goes across to Baleal, it is such a fantastic area and so many little cafes with amazing views. No matter which way we drove we always seemed to come across spectacular views and little towns. There are some great little cafes and restaurants we went to just a short drive away.
We had such a good holiday for a very reasonable price and would definitely return again in the future.
Thank you for your review and kind comments made . I am naturally very pleased you had a most enjoyable stay and the companies i introduced you to you found helpful and cost effective.Naturally i can not guarantee the companies i introduced you to however i have found them reliable over many years and i am always pleased to try and offer suggestions to guests as to what may save a few pounds relative to your holiday as a whole if asked .
As to my villa, i very much regard it personally ,as a home from home with a few personal touches and when ever possible try and stay in my holiday home as it is situated in a quite natural forest surroundings with as you found many local restaurants and cafes which i find reasonably priced and find the local area unspoilt were you are sure of a warm Portuguese welcome .
As you said there are numerous places to visit and a wide variety of activities to do if that is your want and hopefully the information folder in my villa was a good starting point giving you positive suggestions.
I am pleased you found the villa and area offer good value for money and you had a very enjoyable holiday and look forward to hopefully welcoming you back in the future .
