Description

This is a beautiful 2 bedroom old 'Centenary' house (sleeps 5) over 3 floors on the walls of Óbidos with a romantic story to tell. The house is at the heart of the Medieval Óbidos old town backing onto the walls on the outer side with private terrace.

One hundred years ago this house used to belong to a very wealthy and locally known landlord from a very traditional family. All properties from this family were painted in pink!

Until today this is the only house allowed to be painted in pink in Óbidos! All other properties are painted in white according to the local rules that are now in place.

The house 'Casa Da Cerca' used to be the home for the Lord's mistress. He visited his lover regularly and arrived by horse from his family house which was a nearby farm (Quinta das Janelas). To avoid been seen by the local people he ordered his employees to build a small path up the hill to the house, away from the main street. That path still exists today, covered with cobblestones. You can see it finishing at the View point (Belvedere) by the house. At that time the ground floor of the house was for the animals and people would live upstairs.

The property retains a romantic charm with its glowing pink walls that contrast with the white buildings that surround it.

The property has 2 bedrooms and a double sofa bed in the lounge so it can sleep 5 comfortably. The 2 bedrooms have 3 single beds in total and both are en-suite. One of the en-suites has a bath with shower over, WC and basin and the other has a shower cubical, WC and basin. There is an additional bathroom on the ground floor with shower cubical.

The sunny and spacious living room has a private terrace outside for dining and sun bathing on the sun loungers. There is a BBQ and umbrella for guests use.

Inside there are two comfortable sofas and a television, an extendable dining table for up to 8 people and a contemporary kitchen. Should you need it there are also 3 oil filled radiators.

A Wi-Fi service can be arranged for this property for the cost of € 30 per stay. Please be aware that this needs to be arranged in advance and it will depend on the availability of the device. This is a "Pay as you go" service and usually € 30 is enough for approximately 15 days of moderate consumption without large downloads. 

There is free parking on the street.

A gem in the beautiful town of Óbidos.

Please note that every day between 9 pm and 10 pm the gardener comes to the property to water the garden bed.

The cleaning of this property is done by a 'Clean & Safe certified' team - distinction for companies in the Tourism sector that comply with the recommendations of Health Authorities to avoid contamination of spaces with SARS-CoV-2.

    As fotografias já davam uma ideia das condições e beleza da casa! O acesso fácil, a luminosidade interior, as comodidades, silêncio, o terraço com vista para a muralha... foi uma experiência única. Também a vila de Óbidos, a lagoa, as praias e demais paisagens e locais proporcionaram umas férias memoráveis.

    Le village d'Obidos est charmant. Nous y avons passé un weekend avec nitre fils de 4 ans et une amie. La maison est très bien située, au pied des remparts et à 3 min. À pied de la rue principale, à proximité des boutiques et restaurants. Nous avons pu nous garer au pied de la maison. L'intérieur est très agréable, parfaitement propre et accueillant. Nous avons bien profité de la terrasse également.

    Great location. All as described. Would recommend.

    Loved this place. Great location just outside the wall. Great view. And a teapot for us Brits. Fab. One small point. Communication was a bit confusing. Seemed to be more than one person emailing us.

    One of a kind
    Perfect location as you can park your car right beside apt but are close tothis romantic walled medieval town. Quiet, spacious, with great outdoor terrace. Well appointed. Some odors from plumbing system but everything worked well.

    Great location and a good place to stay a few days if you want to visit Óbidos and Caldas da Raínha

    Vaste, lumineux, bien équipé et très bien situé.
    La propriété est calme, vaste, lumineuse, parfaitement équipée, idéale pour notre famille avec 3 enfants. Au pied de la muraille, c'est un accès directe à l'enceinte où il fait bon flanner le soir dans les ruelles d'Obidos. En voiture, les premières plages sont à 15 min , le supermarché à 5 m et Lisbonne à moins d'une heure. Nous le recommandons.

    fantastic house
    This is a fantastic house, looks recently decorated and very well finished. Would recommend. Obidos is only 2 minutes walk away, there is a 5 minute drive to a supermarket and some beautiful beach resorts are 20 minutes drive.

    Inmejorable ubicación en una casa de ensueño
    La casa da cerca no sólo está ubicada de la mejor de las maneras: junto a una de las puertas de acceso a la muralla, pero -y esto la diferencia de muchas de las casas de Óbidos- con opción de acceder hasta ella en coche y aparcar en la puerta de la misma. Es una casa muy tranquila, más que amplia para una pareja con niño, como fue nuestro caso, y en la que se mezclan los detalles rústicos que se conservan de la antigua casa con un interior absolutamente remodelado para hacérnoslo más cómodo. Es una maravilla asomarse a las ventanas y disfrutar de una de las mejores vistas del lugar. A las noches todo es silencio. Además cuenta en la parte trasera, y dando a la muralla con un jardín o patio amplio e íntimo donde se puede desayunar, comer o cenar tranquilamente, o salir a leer sin más. La única recomendación que se me ocurre es la de que se cambie de TV pues la que hay es dificil de manejar -increible- y sólo tiene 4 canales. Sería muy práctico que hubiera wifi. Los alrededor de 12 días que estuvimos fueron de ensueño y estamos seguros de que volveremos.
