“Lovely place”
Reviewed September 27, 2008

Arrived here tired after a long drive from the Algarve and was greeted by the charming and helpful receptionist who gave us a full tour of the facilities and the grounds before showing us to our room. What a delight this place is. Our double bedroom was beautifully fitted out and very spacious,With a bathroom to match, which was accessed down a small flight of steps. The ceiling was beamed and the floor was lovely polished wood with rugs by the side of the bed. The residents lounge had huge comfy sofas in front of a large flat screen tv. and free access to the computer. They keep a stock of drinks behind a small bar in the lounge with the receptionist also acting as bar person. The quality of the furnishings in the lounge was a wonderful mix of new and old.
We were worried that the continental breakfast would not be to our taste. Wrong. We were pleasantly surprised as it was very good with cereals , lovely bread rolls, thickly sliced bread , fresh orange juice and ham and cheese. The best item was the almond tart! This b&b is an absolute gem and will definitely stay again if in the area.

Our family of 4 stayed here for 2 nights during a visit to Portugal and specifically the Obidos area. This B&B is just a short drive outside of Obidos, a delightful old city. The grounds were peaceful and our apartment came with a full kitchen. Everything was clean, quiet and comfy. My kids LOVED the large pool table. Breakfast was wonderful also. We had a great stay here.

We stayed for three nights with our two young children in one of the one-bedroom appartments set in the courtyard and we all loved this place! Given its two-star billing, we expected fairly basic facilities but the apartment was built to high specifications with a fully-equipped kitchen and marble bathroom. The main house was very stylishly appointed, and the garden and grounds were beautiful, with a large swimming pool and a play area for the children. Breakfast is included, even for those staying in the apartments, and the hotel put on a lavish spread every morning. Overall, Casa Sao Rafael had the feel of a 'boutique hotel' but while still managing to be family-friendly and relaxed.
The immediate surroundings of the hotel were not terribly inspiring but the beautiful town of Obidos is only 5-10 minutes drive away (you do need a car...) and the great beach at Baleal is only 20-30 minutes down the motorway, so this hotel is a great base both for visiting neighbouring towns and for the beach. Strongly recommended!!

My boyfriend and I just returned from a 2 week trip in Portugal and stayed at Casa de Campo Sao Rafael for one night. It is about 1 mile from the castle and our room had a beautiful view of it! Everyone that worked there made us feel like friends, they were so warm and helpful. The rooms were amazingly clean, up-to-date and decorated so charmingly. One of the girls that worked there said they renovated it 10 months ago and it's obvious. Eventhough it is not one of the hotels located in the walls of the city, we would stay at Casa de Campo Sao Rafael in a heartbeat!
