We have just returned from a week at the Villa, we are all sad to be home and miss waking up to the view of the pool outside! The Villa is well equipped , we particularly liked the dishwasher and washing machine facilities (we washed our clothes to take home clean ). There was plenty to do in the local area, all really close by! We found Aldi and Lidl, McDonald’s etc. You definitely need a car to get around.
-Caldas da Rainha Centre (play park)
-La Vie shopping Mall
-Restaurante Paraiso do Coto (cheap and lots of food)
-Óbidos medieval town/castle
We would definitely recommend to friends and hope to return in future!
This is a great family apartment set up with lots of extras for young children like plastic bowls, plates, cups; cot and bed with safety rail; lots of toys, books; a pushchair and much, much more. The pool was beaufully clean. The location was great, Coto is a lovely local village but in the surrounding area in under 45 minutes you can get to several other towns which offer great days out from beaches to the beautiful town of Óbidos. And in about 90 minutes you can be in Lisbon centre if you fancy a trip further afield. Caldas Da Rainha, the local town has a brilliant park and lots of shopping facilities. The family who own the apartment, who live upstairs, were really friendly, anything we wanted they provided. We would recommend and return.
The Collis family are very welcoming and their apartment has everything to make a holiday with children relaxing and enjoyable. The area has plenty to discover and 'do' if that's what you want, but the well equipped house and lovely village setting mean staying at home is great too. Definitely somewhere we'd love to return to.
We have just come back from staying here for 10 days today!! Thats myself, my husband, my mum and our 2 children- 2 1/2 and 1 1/2 y/o's........... It is amazing!! The owners are so welcoming and accomodating for all your needs. The villa itself is just incredible- everything you could think of is there for adults as well as kids. The garden/pool area is really secluded with palm trees and other plants, equipped with sunbeds, table and chairs, bbq, lots of pool lilos etc.
The location is a small village (Coto) with a few restaurants short walking distance away- both serve great food at great prices, and a local supermarket 5 min drive away.
Its a great base to go and visit the main local attractions- Buddah Eden- half hour drive, san martinho beach- 15 mins drive, obidos- the walled city- 15 mins drive, the lisbon aquarium (oceanarium) 1 hr drive.
It is so good, that we are already planning our next visit- for september (this year)!!
Thanks James and Alison x
