Interaction with Guests
I interact with the guests as much as they wish, i love to speak and change ideas about any subject, and i can be very helpful with information and recommendations guests might need, also because I'm an artist, i can even share my music;-)
But if guests want privacy, i will also respect that!
The neighborhood is just perfect, house located in the heart of the village, one minute from the main street, you just need to get lost...
There is parking close by the house and from óbidos you have access to bus, tours, its also very close to many beaches and interesting places to visit
The only rule is to feel confortable, happy and express your self as much as you can ;-)
From Aug 1 - 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 4 nights.
Rodrigo was wonderful - very friendly. He advised us on how to arrive and get around Obidos and which restaurants to enjoy and was very flexible with our arrival and departure plans.
The apartment was lovely and very roomy. Just be careful walking around, there are several unexpected small steps. The gem of this house is the back yard. Its a great place to relax on a hot afternoon, or to look at the stars and enjoy the silence that falls on Obidos at night.
Staying inside the walls of Obidos was the highlight of our trip to Portugal. It was a little challenging to get our car into the city, but experiencing Obidos at night when most of the tourists are gone or tucked into their beds was magical.
A little difficult to find as the street is unlabelled, but the advice of "close to plaza"is correct. House is lovely and room comfortable. Coffee good . The rear yard has enjoyable views.
What a wonderful place! We absolutely loved staying in this gorgeous apartment in Obidos. The town itself is magical, and the flat was a perfect base to explore it - beautiful, and right in the centre of the castle. Rodrigo was not only an incredibly helpful host, but him and his mother were so lovely to chat to when we got the chance. If you're considering staying in Obidos, I can't recommend staying at Rodrigo's place highly enough!
Our stay in Obidos was right out of a fairytale, complete with quaint accommodations. Rodrigo responded quickly to our last minute stop in the castle town and was able to quickly help us setup our stay. Once we arrived, Isabel gave us a warm welcome and fielded all of our questions throughout our stay. The room was clean, kitchen well equipped and family room included a fireplace! The backyard looked amazing.. Although it wasn't the right season for us to take advantage of! Highly recommend staying here when you come to Obidos.
A magical little town that I would recommend to everybody. It looks like a place, straight out of a fairy tail. The house we stayed for 1 night was perfect and a special place. It looks beautiful, clean and we got a warm welcome from Isabel. A lovely woman, that explained where to go and what to see. We also went to the Christmas fair, but we found that very touristic and crowded. Overall we had a lovely time and we will be back for sure. I would like to thank Isabel for the hospitality and hope to come back again.
Rodrigo não estava em casa quando cheguei, mas fui muito bem recebida por sua mãe, que me mostrou a casa e se colocou à minha disposição.
O quarto que fiquei era bem confortável e a casa bem equipada. Destaque para o jardim com vista para as muralhas, muito bonito.
O fato da casa ser dentro da muralha torna a experiência especial.
