This is a nice cottage in the center of Obidos, just a few doors down from the main tourist street, but not at all noisy or even many people walking by. I was a little worried since the price was so reasonable, but I didn't need to be. The cottage is spacious, clean, has a full kitchen, and quiet. It was unexpectedly hot during our trip and the house stayed nice and cool thanks to the thick walls. The bathroom was dated and had some mold/mildew on the grout and shower curtain, The tub was slow to drain, and unfortunately, the trap in the bathroom sink was not functioning properly so there was frequently a smell of sewage. This needs to be fixed, but it wold have been nice if there was at least a drain plug for the sink so the smell could be stopped. We actually chose to sleep in the bedroom with 2 twin beds since the double bedroom had a street light just outside the window making it very bright in that room at night. The kitchen was well equipped, there was a washing machine, the furniture was decent and the beds comfy. At check in we did not meet Gabriela, another gal was there finishing up the laundry, so she let us in. Unfortunately, she did not have much information for us concerning the town, sites, restaurants etc. I gave our stay 4 stars based on the things that were not so great are all things we can deal with, especially for the sweet price of this cottage in an ideal location. We fully enjoyed Obidos and all the surrounding areas which are an easy drive for day trips.
This is a lovely house perfectly located in a lovely town. It is very comfortable with all the amenities we might need. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only way to experience Obidos. The evenings, after the day-trippers left, were magical.

It is very cosy, everything needed is there, it is well located and Gabriela is the best host you can imagine.
Seh is so friendly and helpful in every case.
We absolutly recommend the Casa da Travessa forma stay in the beautiful City Obidos.
