“Perfect holiday villa for a large group with bags of character”
Reviewed 31 July 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We rented Casa do Lago to celebrate our birthdays with a group of friends and it proved to be just perfect. Each room has an ensuite and a view, the pool is a good size with plenty of room for everyone to sunbathe and the garden holds many surprises! We rented another villa down the road for other friends and it was easy to host them in Casa do Lago given the size of the living room and kitchen and also the outdoor barbecue. The size of the house is also helpful on rainy days, when we were able to watch DVDs as a group in comfort.
The style of the house is very distinct and quite imposing when you arrive.
Location wise it's an hour's drive from Lisbon so relatively easy to reach in a hire car from a budget airline flight. The nearest town, Foz do Areldo, has a few nice bars and restaurants and a trip to nearby Obidos is a must - what a beautiful historic town.
The owners were a pleasure to deal with, helpful and friendly, and the price very competitive for what you get. We hope to be back - perhaps with friends who have children, as it's very well set up for kids too.

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed 30 July 2012 for a stay in March 2012

We had a fantastic stay at Casa do Lago at the end of February through the beginning of March. We were there with our two children, ages 2 and 4, for whom the villa was an absolute paradise. The kids played every morning on the playground while the adults lay in the hammocks admiring the breathtaking views of the lagoon. The villa was beautiful and well-maintained, inside and out. The weather was lovely but a bit cold for swimming at that time of year, although my son did venture into the pool a few times. I can only imagine how nice the pool would be in warmer weather.

The villa is also well-positioned to visit many beautiful areas. We made day trips to Obidos, Sintra, Navare, and Caldas da Rainha. Obidos was lovely, Sintra a bit farther afield but absolutely not to be missed--we went back twice and could have spent even more time there exploring the primeval forests and stunning castles. Navare had a lovely beach but otherwise seemed a little touristy for my tastes, but the drive there along the coast was lovely, and we made a stop at the beautiful Sao Martinho do Porto on the way. Parking was a little tricky in Caldas, but the big park there was beautiful, with a wonderful playground for the kids--definitely worth a visit. Foz was small but charming, with a beautiful beach. We were able to stock up on all the groceries we needed (and delicious pastries) at the small local shops. We generally ate lunch in restaurants and cooked dinner in the well-appointed kitchen at the villa, since the Portuguese eat dinner well beyond our kids' bedtime.

Carlos was a wonderful host, responding quickly to every request. I highly recommend this villa for families with young children or for anyone looking for a beautiful relaxing vacation spot with easy access to many of the loveliest sites of Portugal.
