“Pleasant place”

Their breakfast is very good and so the hospitility. The city Obidos was a big surprise, so we had a pleasant stay overthere.

We stayed in one of the selfcatering cottages of Casa d'Obidos, Casa Christina.
Casa d'Obidos is really an unique place. The manor house and the cottage are furnished with beautiful old things. This creates a very personal and cozy atmosphere which makes you feel welcome right away. The swimmingpool was great for the kids. The location is fine. There is are many things to explore in the area. A great advantage is that it has not yet been completely spoiled by tourism.

The best B&B we have been staying during our trip in Portugal. The house is wonderful, situated in the country side just in front of Obidos castel and Marianna, the manager, take care of any minimal detail to make you feel at home. Wonderful context !!

WARNING: DON'T GO THERE IN WINTER! Trusting the revisions read on TripAdvisor and the description found in Frommer's guide, we have booked a night in Casa Matilda (the 4 people apartment located in the cottage). Although at first glance what we read could have matched the place, we have been soon disappointed by the dark sides: at 16degC (heating was lit only after we got inside) the place was infested by spiders and and tap water went out 2 times (first time the reception was still attended so we could ask for help, but at the second we had to go to bed after returning from dinner without having even the possibility to brush our teeth). The last and worst surprise however was yet to come. Going to bed we discovered that sheets, blankets and pillows, although clean at sight, were stinking of humidity and age (as if left for months in the coldness of an old and not inhabited house), forcing us to spend coughing the worst night of our visit to Portugal. Very old bathroom with stinky towels too (always due to humidity). We deem this place could be very beautiful in summer, but for sure it is left to age unattended in winter... Good point: breakfast was very rich and tasty, even if served in a cold central house...

Dear Sir /Madam

We would like to inform you that we already did the renovation of Casa Matilde where you stayed last year in Óbidos, Portugal. At the moment Casa Matilde has central heating and a new bathroom completely reformed like the XIX century style.

Thank you for your review and we wish you a good year of 2013.

Best regards

Mariana Baptista

Our room looked out across the fields to the castle. It was huge and well lit. Yes the beds are hard but we had hard beds all over Portugal. It's a pretty old house, and the breakfast room is very formal and lovely, with a huge and varied continental (no eggs or hot foods) breakfast.

When we arrived it was pouring rain, so instead of going into the walled city of Obidos we opened a bottle of wine we had with us and went into the billiards room and played a couple of games of pool. This was great fun and a wonderful way to while away the time until dinner. There's a terrific little neighborhood restaurant down the street called O Caldeirao, about three minutes drive away with ample free parking - if you stay at Casa d'Obidos treat yourself to a meal at this wonderful little gem, and don't hesitate to get the house wine!

This was a nice place to stay, although there are few things that keep it from "wonderful." When you arrive there is a faint musty/mildewy smell - not strong but definitely present. This is probably quite common in a house this old, but it may be offputting to some. I normally do a bit of laundry every few nights, and I had intended to do some at Casa d'Obidos, but the house was too damp and the heat wasn't on so there was no way anything would dry. Finally, as the weather the night before precluded us visiting the city, we would have liked to get an early breakfast and run over there before checking out (11:00, firm, no exceptions whatsoever). However, after we checked in and were told breakfast was from 8:30am to 10am, there was a knock on our door and we were told breakfast was full until 9:20am. This made a small mess of my day's itinerary, but they did hold our luggage (I try not to park in tourist parking with luggage in the car). So, nothing huge, but there is room for improvement here.

Ok, so the title is a bit of an oxymoron, but where else can you stay on a working farm with views and amenities like these? We were fortunate to have the former wine press/cellar as our apartment with a full kitchen, cozy fireplace, elevated sleeping area (on top of the old wine press) and a loft. The staff was attentive, helpful, and understanding and we felt as if we had a home away from home. The worst part of our stay was having to leave.
