Amazing
How exciting! Entering the tranquility of that house was a balm. What a peace, what an atmosphere! I haven't felt this good for a long time. The quietness of the place, the surroundings of the space and the friendliness of the owner of the accommodation, in addition to the beauty of the village, are more than enough reasons to come back again and again! Thanks for creating spaces like this!

Enchanting and Romantic
Enchanting and Romantic My husband and I stayed at Casa de Travessa for the month of March. It is a really charming, sweetly decorated home located on a cobble stone side street within the walls of Óbidos. We were warmly welcomed with a basket of fruit and a bottle of the local Ginja. Every window has quaint views and let in perfumed scents of wisteria, blossoming fruit trees and the sounds of church bells. The house is well equipped for cooking if one chooses to take an easy walk along the ancient aqueduct to the supermarket, though there are ample cafes just steps away. We enjoyed it so much that we chose to reserve an additional month as the area is so pleasant. The village is busy with visitors during the day, but is quiet before 10 am and after 4:00. Beyond things to explore in the old town, there is a user friendly indoor municipal pool within walking distance, a large park below the western escarpment for exercise, picnics and grand views of the castle walls. Óbidos is well situated for day trips to Peniche, Nazarè, or hiking along the beach lagoon and cliffs at Foz de Arelho. Our genuinely gracious host communicated quickly for any needs or recommendations for resources. I can not think of a complaint. So much to see, experience or to just BE here; this well situated and appointed house meet all our needs.

Underbart litet hus i centrala Obidos
Ett litet hus i två våningar mitt i medeltidsstaden Obidos. Trots sitt centrala läge är utemiljön lugn och tyst nattetid. Nedre våning med vardagsrum, välutrustat kök och tvättstuga. På övervåningen två sovrum med sköna sängar och ett utmärkt badrum. Allting rent och väldigt fräscht. TV finns och Wifi fungerade utmärkt. Flera restauranger finns i närheten. Nära också till alla stadens sevärdheter.

Great place to stay
Great 2 bedroom house within the castle walls. Exactly as the photos show, no nasty surprises! Would recommend only taking small suitcase as the roads within the castle walls are cobbled and steep; you have to walk/carry your suitcase to the door. Beautiful place to stay once the day tripper tourists leave for the day, with some great restaurants and bars right on your doorstep.

Perfect spot to see Obidos and the surrounding area.
This is a nice cottage in the center of Obidos, just a few doors down from the main tourist street, but not at all noisy or even many people walking by. I was a little worried since the price was so reasonable, but I didn't need to be. The cottage is spacious, clean, has a full kitchen, and quiet. It was unexpectedly hot during our trip and the house stayed nice and cool thanks to the thick walls. The bathroom was dated and had some mold/mildew on the grout and shower curtain, The tub was slow to drain, and unfortunately, the trap in the bathroom sink was not functioning properly so there was frequently a smell of sewage. This needs to be fixed, but it wold have been nice if there was at least a drain plug for the sink so the smell could be stopped. We actually chose to sleep in the bedroom with 2 twin beds since the double bedroom had a street light just outside the window making it very bright in that room at night. The kitchen was well equipped, there was a washing machine, the furniture was decent and the beds comfy. At check in we did not meet Gabriela, another gal was there finishing up the laundry, so she let us in. Unfortunately, she did not have much information for us concerning the town, sites, restaurants etc. I gave our stay 4 stars based on the things that were not so great are all things we can deal with, especially for the sweet price of this cottage in an ideal location. We fully enjoyed Obidos and all the surrounding areas which are an easy drive for day trips.

Gabriela - la gentillesse incarnée - a une maison de charme (+ confort, fraicheur !)
Gabriela. aime accueillir et nous l'avons compris tout de suite. Elle s'est assurée que nous ne manquions de rien, nous a conseillés de belles visites. Sa jolie maison, très fleurie l'été, est très agréable, très confortable, calme, etc. Nous disposions de la maison entière (dont 2 chambres décorées avec goût). Cette maison ancienne aux murs épais reste fraiche quand il fait chaud. Le village fortifié de Obidos, les villes proches sont magnifiques, très intéressants sur le plan de l'histoire de l'art. La mer est tout près. Nous avons très envie de revenir à Casa da Travessa et nous le ferons sûrement. A bientôt Gabriela et ... un grand MERCI. Nous recommandons cette étape à nos nombreux amis qui veulent aller au Portugal !

The perfect place to stay in Portugal!
Nossa estada (minha e da minha esposa) na casa de Gabriela foi maravilhosa, pois além de ser muito bem equipada e decorada (ponto positivo para decoração e manutenção da casa, atenção aos detalhes foi excepcional!), está localizada no centro histórico de Óbidos. Gabriela é extremamente gentil e atenciosa, sempre pronta a ajudar nos fornecendo dicas sobre restaurantes (vegetarianos para nós) e passeios e quando solicitada. De todos os locais em que ficamos em Portugal, foi o nosso preferido. Recomendaremos a todos os nossos amigos e familiares e com certeza voltaremos!

Just perfect
This is a lovely house perfectly located in a lovely town. It is very comfortable with all the amenities we might need. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only way to experience Obidos. The evenings, after the day-trippers left, were magical.

A combinação perfeita para se sentir Óbidos
A vila de Óbidos é fantástica. Só o facto de avisitar já é por si só um acontecimento. Agora imaginem a experiência de viver dentro desta vila. E ainda por cima numa localização quase central, perto de tudo, mas suficientemente longe para se estar num sossego absoluto. Uma casa de dois pisos, muito bem decorada e muito acolhedora. A Gabriela foi extremamente hospitaleira. O único senão é que o carro teve que ficar fora das muralhas, mas também isso valeu pelo passeio do carro à casa (5min)
