Torre de Maneys is two buildings linked by an enclosed bridge across the street. The main house in stone, dating from the XVI century, is believed to have been a former storage tower of the Castle of Óbidos. The Space In the tower are the common rooms of the house, distributed on two floors and an upper gallery (library). Due to topography, we can enter it from each floor and through various doors, thus enjoying a very particular relationship with the town. The dining room and kitchen are on the lower floor, and both extend outside, to the town square and street. The upper floor has a room with a fireplace, it is my favourite reading place in winter evenings. The double height library with the gallery is the main room in the house and best for gatherings, watching a movie or listening to ...Torre de Maneys is two buildings linked by an enclosed bridge across the street.

The upper floor has a room with a fireplace, it is my favourite reading place in winter evenings. The double height library with the gallery is the main room in the house and best for gatherings, watching a movie or listening to music. Most of the books are on the stacks on the upper gallery, ready to browse. There are fiction and poetry in portuguese, english, french and spanish, and a few in italian. From this gallery you access the bridge to the other side of the house, where you will find most of the rooms. Guest Access Guests have access to the whole house. Breakfast is served in the dining room next to the kitchen or, if the weather allows it, on the terrace. The terrace overlooks the town and the fields beyond. The pergola provides shade, and a place to sit and read or just relax. It is a good place for drinks, or for breakfast. There is a dumbwaiter to the kitchen. The patio is one of the entrances to the house, and is a sheltered place to enjoy siting outside In both of these places one can watch a good movie in a summer night. Interaction with Guests We offer breakfast and cleaning is included, on a daily basis. The owner may be staying on his own bedroom. Other Things to Note Circulation inside the house requires going up and down stairs, to go from one building to the other. It is an old building with open banisters, not appropriate for small children.More

This stay was truly the highlight of our trip. Beautiful old castle / home with so much history, and a much better value than the Pousada. They welcomed us to join them for celebrating processionals of Good Friday. My wife fell ill while staying there...More

About the neighborhood
Óbidos is a unique place for spending a vacation. You can walk everywhere and get lost in the medieval streets, taking the time to observe the detailed architecture of its buildings, churches and squares. Every corner holds a potential surprise; the hilltop location, sloping topography, and surrounding castle walls, offer contrasting views of narrow streets against a backdrop of open territory beyond. The many bookshops found inside the village (belonging to the Óbidos Literary Village Program) are a destination to explore for who is interested in discovering contemporary authors or old books long out of print.
How to get there
Getting Around Óbidos is 74 km North of Lisbon, reached by car, A8 highway. There is a direct bus (Rodoviária do Tejo, leaving from Campo Grande subway station in Lisbon) which stops near the Town entrance. To explore the region a car is convenient. Access inside the walls is restricted to loading and unloading the car, but ample parking is available.
