A cosy and historical house located inside the walls of Óbidos Castle, a perfect place to chill, reconnect with the nature, art and culture...

The Space

Beautiful house in the center of the village of Óbidos, inside the walls of the castle, named as "Casa do Candeeiro" which means "The lamp house".

The house is antique but remodelled, with three bedrooms, modern bathroom and kitchen, a living room with fireplace, patio and garden with barbecue and panoramic view for the castle.

The view is fantastic, very cosy place, in the center of Óbidos Castle.

The visitors will find a house full of light, great energy with a peaceful environment, specially during the night.

The house its surrounded with all kind of attractions inside he walls of the castle, such, as museums, monuments, restaurants, bars, souvenir stores, guiding tours, historical churches, etc..

There are also a cultural agenda, which includes expositions, concerts, performances, and during some periods of the years there are amazing events being developed inside the village, such as the medieval market, chocolate festival, Christmas village, and others...

Inside the village there is a little supermarket, and 5 minutes walking from the walls there's a big supermarket with all kind of products...

Casa do Candeeiro is a very special place, a place to chill, to feel inspired for any kind of art, being surrounded by history, nature, and relax...

Feel free to come and have your own experience ;-)

Guest Access

Guest have access to the entire house, which means their room, free use of kitchen, living room, chill and cook in the garden, expressing themselves as they wish ;-)

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

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...

Getting around

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

  • It's a great place, perfectly located (the house is located few steps from the main street). Rodrigo and his mother were both really kind, willing to work with our schedule since the first contact (we were driving from Sintra and we didn't know what time we would arrive). We totally recommend staying here!

  • We are a Norwegian couple that travelled in Portugal for ten days. Rodrigo responded immediately to our request, and met us when we arrived in Obidos.

    The house was perfect for us, and being allowed to use the garden - for breakfasts, reading a book, listening to the birds singing and overlooking the beautiful roofs of the village - made our days peaceful and memorable. His mother lives in the ground floor and was helpful if we needed anything.

    Initially we booked for two nights, but because the house and the surroundings were so nice, we ended up extending the stay for three more nights. Obidos is perfectly situated, both for making trips to the seaside, and also for taking road trips to the inland areas.

    Rodrigo was a very friendly and hospitable host, and we really enjoyed our stay at Rodrigos house in Obidos.

  • We stayed in rodrigo's house only for one night on our way down the coast with my husband, 7mth old baby and 3 yr old son. The house was really well located inside the castle walls but in a part where tourists rarely pass and at night was whisper quiet. The house was sparkly clean and had everything we needed and my son loved in particular picking plums from the plum tree in the garden out the back which, when we visited in June, was dripping with fruit. Rodrigo was a great host and made us feel right at home. Obidos was a lovely place to visit - we really enjoyed walking around the castle walls and I'd highly recommend rodrigo's house as surely one of the best and most reasonably priced places to stay in the town. The pictures listed at the time we booked probably under sell the house - it really is very lovely!

  • B&B at its best!
    we booked 1 day ahead, quick response, easy to communicate and make arrangements!

    ...right in the middle of the old town centre, once we settled in our cosy room, the back garden was a real surprise. We just didn't want to leave anymore!

    thanks Rodrigo

  • We loved staying in this simple, authentic Obidos house, and really enjoyed spending time with Rodrigo, who even graced us with a mesmerizing performance on a fascinating Swiss-Italian variant on a steel drum. We cooked a simple fish dinner and ate it in the lovely garden with gorgeous views over the rooftops and across to the castle walls. Obidos has many tourists during the day, but at night we could hear a pin drop. A special place.

  • Rodrigo was a wonderful host. We were late arriving and he patiently waited for us and greeted us with a smile and lots of helpful tips. The house is perfectly situated in lovely Obidos, with a garden where you can sip a beer/wine and enjoy the views of the castle. We loved our stay!

  • Rodrigo and his mother are very kind persons. Unfortunately we met Rodrigo briefly so there was no time to have much contact. The house was big but a bit basic but Rodrigo is hard working to make improvements. We enjoyed the stay in Obidos.

  • A nice spot and Rodrigo is a top guy who will assist you if required. Obidos is very central to explore the area and well recommended. The flat has everything you need and at night there are many restaurants to choose from. Recommended, many thanks Rodrigo
