What we like about this property

Expansive, secluded and beautifully restored with imaginative and enchanting detail, we love the bold use of color and artistic, contemporary spirit here. It’s soulful, chic and classic. 

Description

Nestled into over one hundred hectares of rural landscape in northern Portugal, this beautifully restored 17th century manor home is just outside of the lovely hilltop town of Obidos. The house enjoys a commanding spot overlooking pastoral landscapes and features the classic and traditional architectural silhouette of Portugal in a bold wash of color. 

The interiors have undergone a very modern alteration with soaring cathedral ceilings, polished concrete and modern updates that are stylish and tasteful without detracting from the historic and rural charm. Owned and restored by a travel reporter and photographer, every corner of the house is filled with treasures collected from around the world with colorful decor and detail that’s eclectic and charming. The main living area is spacious and open with rustic beamed ceilings, a unique fireside hearth and an open stair that leads to the loft lounge and bedrooms. The fully equipped kitchen has been updated and can serve up to twelve inside and even more  alfresco.  

With five bedrooms (three en-suite), there is also a two story independent annex with a double room and bath, living area and kitchenette for a total occupancy of twleve. The terrace overlooks a beautiful garden with picturesque rural views and a small infinity pool with a larger pool located in the lower gardens.

Spacious and inviting, this home is the perfect country getaway with chic style and classic beauty.   

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, satellite cable TV with DVD player and movie library. Housekeeping and laundry facilities. Secured wireless entry and on site parking. Childcare services and extra cleaning available. Two bicycles provided for guest use.

AROUND 

Picturesque and colorful, the medieval hilltop town of Obidos is surrounded by fortified walls and criss crossed by labyrinthian cobbledstone streets. Just a few minutes into the historic center of Obidos, you are also within a short drive to the vibrant market and thermal spa town of Caldas da Rainha and under an hour north of Lisbon. The greater Leiria district of northern Portugal is rural and charming but also within a few miles of the famous Silver Coast and some of the best beaches and surf spots including: Foz do Arelho, Obidos Lagoon, Nazaré and Peniche. It’s also a great jumping-off point for the beautiful Ilhas Berlengas nature reserve.

    A wonderful stay in this corner of Portugal. The house is beautiful, in the countryside, isolated from the rest of the world. We were greeted with care, we always stayed tuned during the week. The services and equipment of the estate are impeccable.

    A wonderful find, you can see the care and creativity that has gone into this property, and the location and set up are ideal for families and groups alike. I think this is one of the finest properties I have come across and throughly recommend it.

    We had a marvelous stay with our extended family. The house and gardens are beautiful. spacious and very well equipped. The location is quiet and peaceful. We were welcomed at the house by a representative of the owner who gave us lots of information and answered our queries. …

    Nuno and Maria, thanks for this amazing week, the place is magical. It really feels like a holiday place, very relaxing and secluded but with easy access to the local markets and magnificent village of Obidos.

    We absolutely loved our stay at the big red barn, everything is to such a high standard, beautifully equipped and spacious. It is situated in quiet vineyards and farms with delightful towns nearby for day trips or meals out. The only negatives were two days into our stay the wifi stopped working, which we mentioned but was not resolved – but given the beautiful nature of the villa we could do without. Also the chlorine levels were wrong in the pool leaving a slight yellow mark, which was suggested to be our fault initially. However these were incredibly minor points in relation to a near perfect holiday. There are not many places one can find (none for the competitive price of the barn) which are not only beautifully furnished but also have enough bathrooms and dining space to allow for 12 adults to comfortably visit. I would highly recommend a stay here.

  • Osmin Callis, July 29, 2014

    Wonderful house, lovely owner.
    We spent a week on this secluded estate, where our thoughtful host had anticipated our needs.
    From lots of bottled water, and wine in the fridge chilling on our arrival, to torches and plenty of clean linen in every bedroom and a bespoke guide to the area.

    Interior
    The house is very comfortable, pleasantly decorated and well equipped. It would suit children from 5 years old upwards, as our three-year-old was attracted to the many objects in the owner’s collection. Thankfully there was plenty to occupy him outside. The open-sided stairs are only a hazard for very small children if they are left unattended, which ours were not.
    The beds are a little soft for my taste, but we slept very well nonetheless. The WiFi is little unstable, but this is outside the owners control. She made two routers available to compensate, with unlimited access.

    Exterior
    The gardens are stunning, spacious and beautifully manicured. The pool is great and sits very well in the lush gardens. We never wanted to leave.
    There is ample parking for at least three cars in the shade.

    We would definitely return and cannot recommend this property highly enough.
