From Rugeley, United Kingdom Oct 2010

I just say wow! What a fabulous place!
The villa has everything you can dream to find in a property.
It is very far from to be a villa for holiday rentals. It is an home dedicated to the relax!

From Rugeley, United Kingdom Oct 2010

Pure Luxury - Highly recommended
The villa largely exceeded our expectations. What a fantastic property! My whole family, including 2 children and friends were completely amazed. I have never stayed in a so largely equipped holiday villa.
Although the weather was not as great as expected, children never had a single dull moment and parents know that sometimes to achieve that, is not an easy task.
We loved the region. It is far from the crowded touristic routes, but with so many to discover!
I particularly mention: the beach at Sao Martinho do Porto, the Buddha Garden and the medieval Obidos.
Will definitely return.

From London, United Kingdom Sep 2010

Words cannot describe just how beautiful the villa is. It is truly amazing. Million dollar views, great location. Just simply out of this world. If I am ever in Portugal again, I will definitively come back to this villa. Will recommend it to family and friends back in London.

From London, United Kingdom Sep 2010

This property is just stunning!
Its quality is very far from any other in which I have stayed before. From our group, everybody, kids and adults, loved our stay very much. Now, although we do not use to repeat our trips to the same places, we will have to come back again.

From London, United Kingdom Sep 2010

We thank the owners for providing us this wonderful villa. It made our stay in Portugal even more wonderful.

From London, United Kingdom Sep 2010

Reviewer NickName: KipReviewer Location: Liverpool - UKDate of Arrival : Jul 26, 2010Guest NickName: Kip, Liverpool, UKReview Rating : 5/5Review Title "Perfect Choice""We have rented many villas in europe but found Casa do Lago certainly met all our holiday criteria......such views!!!With 6 adults and 5 children to entertain there was never a dull moment with the villa's top notch facilities!Both Carlos & Isobel were perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them...A great fortnight and a property I have already recommended to our friendsColin, Liverpool"

Congratulations to owners for such a beautiful property. For sure they must have great pride on this house. We are very happy for the opportunity to stay in such a amazing property and for the warm way that we have been received. We have been in Portugal 4 times before and experiences like this lead us to come to visit the country more and more often. Maybe one day it will be possible for us to move. In effect, as the time goes on, we like the country more and more. People are welcoming and the country is fantastic. Casa do Lago is largely equipped with everything we could need or dream for our holidays. Meanwhile, the weather was not as nice as expected, but because the villa high standard, that was not so important. We easily kept children and the rest of our group, very happy and everybody keep asking to go back. Maybe on the winter , we will stay again at Casa do Lago

We had a very enjoyable and relaxing week at Casa do Lago. It was also great to have the town of Caldas da Rainha so close. Many holiday villas, particularly one with such a great view as this one, are very remote. To be able to get to the centre of a town within ten minutes of leaving the villa definitely gives one the best of both worlds! Our boys got tennis lessons at the excellent sports centre in Caldas which let them mix some sport with our relaxation. The villa had everything we could wish for - the kitchen was very well equipped with the larder and separate drinks fridge an added bonus. The sitting room was spacious with the various lighting options very nice in the evenings. The bedrooms were comfortable and the views, particularly from the upper balconies, were spectacular. The outside areas and the pool were very nice and the spacious BBQ area a treat. Thanks again to Rita and her husband for cooking us a traditional Portuguese meal - the fish course was especially nice. I must say that people in Portugal must definitely eat more than the Irish however given the amount of food she brought with her!! Kids loved everything and were happy all the time! Thank you to owners for letting us such a wonderful property.

Everything is perfect: we enjoy the villa, the laguene, the okean and the neigbourhood! The villa is paradise!The Russian Family, April 2009

We are very glad for having rented this fantastic villa. The house is truly lovely. We have rented many great houses over the years but Casa do Lago is definitely the best. It is in a wonderful location with a fantastic view. The house is set up as a luxury home (not a rental house) with everything you could ask for. We felt very much at home and can’t wait to return.Anita, from U.K.18/06/2010

Despite the December rain, we have been enjoying our stay very much. The villa is very comfortable and the owners have made it a most attractive destination that we will strongly recommend to friends back home.Our excursions to Obidos, Alcobca & Sintra were all very enjoyable.Richard, from USA 05/12/2009

Enjoyable stayInês Rio de Janeiro Review Submitted: April 5, 2009 Date of Stay: August 2008 We are the Brazilian family Inês and Vinicius, with our 4 children, Eduarda, Lucas, Frederico, Madalena, our 3 grandparents, that stayed in your villa for 2 weeks of July / 2008 and we want to say how much we enjoyed our stay in your house. It's a millionaires dream place ! In effect the luxury and standards are so high that we must confess it was painful for us to leave the villa to daily outside activities. The home has everything we may dream to have, in order to relax and enjoy. Pool, gardens, children playground, and so many other items are just fantastic. Our children found a paradise there even now they keep speaking about your villa...we will have to return. The place is tranquil, relaxing, beautiful in a brief, absolutely superb we were not expecting so much. Location is magnificent within 1 km we could enjoy the natural asset of Obidos Lagoon, a very suitable beach for children and on the opposite side, the village centre. We so much enjoyed our walks on the beautiful, long deserted beaches... The nearby mediaeval city of Obidos and the whole region, are so nicely kept in our memories. The weather was magnificent throughout our stay and we are left with fond rememberings of our family reunio n. Thanks again for your help in making our stay so enjoyable.' Inês and Vinicius from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Our family's best holiday stayrtdgfdfgdg Canada Review Submitted: March 16, 2009 Date of Stay: September 2008 Our family had a great stay at this beautifully kept villa last September. The property sits on a hill, overlooking the beautiful Atlantic ocean. We still talk about the beautiful views, especially the sunsets overlooking the ocean, by the infinite pool. Everything in the property is modern and outstanding. The restaurants in town offer great meals reasonably priced. Our family enjoyed some of the area trips to the castle of Obidos, the city of Caldas da Rainha with its market, and the beaches of Sao Martinho and Nazare. This property and location is by far better than any of the properties we have stayed at in the south of Portugal, and the Caribbean. The kids keep asking "When are we going back dad?" Thanks, from Canada ...can't wait to retire...

5 out of 55 Paradise on Earth...marc999 Nice, France Review Submitted: May 1, 2009 Date of Stay: October 2008 Casa do Lago superated in luxury every places where we have been before! It's just fabulous!!! We already knew the Silver Coast region, but everytime we rediscover it, we found it more and more interesting. About the Owners we kept the best image and opinion. Children loved the villa and of course, we are planning to stay there more times.

Our fantastic staying !!!Luigi Patrese Milano, Italy Review Submitted: August 26, 2009 Date of Stay: June 2009 When booking we were a little nervous, but now and comparing prices and quality with other villas we've stayed before, Casa do Lago is the cheapest we've ever found. The villa is a cinema star dream place. Recommended for: Age 55+, Pet-friendly, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children, People with Disabilities, Romantic Getaway

StunningHappyUKFamily UK Review Submitted: August 26, 2009 Date of Stay: August 2009 We stayed in Casa do Lago for a week in August 09. The villa was easily big enough for our family of 4 adults ƒ parents & 2 grandparents) and 5 children, and if we'd kept the baby in our room could have accomodated the other set of grandparents too. The villa was simply stunning and exceeded even our high expectations having viewed the website. It has extraordinary views over the lagoon and out to the ocean. The infinity pool is fabulous and the gardens look great but better still include a childrens play area, hammocks, outdoor gym, and crazy golf. This was paradise for the kids Ɠyrs to 14 yrs) who also loved all the toys and games in the villa: bikes, table tennis, table football, frisbees, inflatables, body boards, bikes (helmets even provided), trikes etc... For the adults there with at least 9 sun loungers by the pool, a wine fridge, sun shades on windows that opened and shut with the sun and bikes and gym equipment for the more adventurous. We used the outdoor bbq and the lady who looks after the house for the owners was able to arrange for people to cook for us one evening without a problem. The villa was cleaned and linen changed mid week, and the pool regularly cleaned. All the bedrooms were big, en-suite, with floor to ceiling glass door/windows onto the patios or balconies. Furnishings and equipment in the villa are all as we'd have at home, not the usual 'rental' standard. Touches such as all switches being labelled and a pc provided with broadband made the stay even easier. The beach in Foz was busy, but a 25 min drive around to the other side of the lagoon and leads to acres of almost empty golden sand, with the added pleasure of looking across at your own villa. Very happy to recommend! Recommended for: Age 55+, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children, People with Disabilities, Romantic Getaway
