Really enjoyed our recent stay in Casa Marcelo. The villa is newly built, modern and fitted out to a very high standard. It is ideal for family holidays with a large swimming pool and garden. There are comfortable settees to sit on outside as well as numerous sun loungers around the pool
There are a couple of cafes and restaurants within a 10 minute walk providing local dishes and the staff were very friendly and could speak English. It is essential to have a car to go shopping and also to visit other places.
The lagoon area is very tranquil and there are some lovely walks around it. There is a really good restaurant by the lagoon about 7 minutes drive away called O Covao Musaranhos.
Places of interest to visit by car are Obidos, the medieval village, the market at Caldas da Rainha, the surfing area Baleal, the caves at Grutas de Mira de Aire and Bacalhoa - the Budda Eden.
There are many golf courses nearby too. Luckily, the weather was lovely for our stay.
It is definitely worth visiting Lisbon at some stage, perhaps a couple of days before or after would be ideal. It is such an interesting city.
Casa Marcelo is a great family holiday destination!
Near obidos 1 hour from Lisbon
Car needed to do shopping etc.
Lovely quiet area . 2 very local restaurants with fine fresh food. Walkable along the beach pathway.
Surrounded by 4 excellent golf courses
Fantastic new build villa with super pool so perfect for a family holiday and of course golf
Stopover in Lisbon for a couple of days very well worthwhile also
I had an incredibly enjoyable stay at Casa Marcelo. The house is really clean, well equipped and beautifully located. A 5 minute walking distance to the beach is just perfect to still ear the surf in the background mixed with the fresh smell of Pine trees. The pool at the house is absolutely amazing and perfect for relaxing after a workout in the little but cool gym. Just perfectly done to a very high standard. The fire pit at night was incredible with perfect clear skies. Perfect.
We've stayed in the very beautiful Casa Marcelo.
The accommodation is amazing, newly built very modern with absolutely everything to keep us all entertained, we had a lot of fun specially outside in the swimming pool taking full advantage of the great Portuguese weather.
The house is close to the Óbidos lagoon and amazing beach with restaurants and cafes near by only a short walk away if you like to relax and play golf there's an excellent golf course only 5 min drive away and the very charming Óbidos Village and castle are close by also .
I will definitely stay in Casa Marcelo again absolutely loved it .
Large modern open plan house with good sized swimming pool in a really good location with a six minute walk to the nearest beach ! Casa Marcelo has a full range of amenities designed to accommodate families . We went in October and two families stayed there - four adults and 5 children ranging from aged 9-teenagers. All had an amazing time as the house has PlayStation, outdoor heated pool and table football etc. Good sized lawn to play football on. Coupled with the sumptuous accommodation there were lovely walks to be had around the lagoon, a small village with few bars and restaurants within walking distance. A championship golf course a 5 min drive away along with 2 other great golf courses a 15 minute drive away .
A truly relaxing escape with lots to do and see!
