We opened our guesthouse and artist’s residence in August 2015 here in Arelho directly at the Lagoa de Obidos, a beautiful natural reserve with lots of birds, a rich flora and fauna and a great place for many activities like sailing, kiting, running, swimming and biking.
The remains of the old farm-house and vinery are integrated in the new guesthouse and create together with the modern architecture and art a fascinating atmosphere.
We used as much as possible natural and untreated materials as wood, cork and stone to create a harmonic and healthy place for a relaxing stay in the middle of this natural paradise.

Our 3 guestrooms and the studio are all individually decorated and have a spectacular view on the lagoon and the ocean.
Two of the rooms and the studio can host up to 4 People, ideally 2 adults and 2 kids. The Rooms have a big common kitchen in the living area on the groundfloor.
Also a big garden with terrasse and bbq place is to be used by our guests.
Relax and take it easy! Our natural pool (piscina biologica) offers a healthy and relaxing bathing-experience with a great view of the lagoon and the sea. if you feel like getting really hot there’s also a hot-tub (jakuzzi) and a wood-heated sauna to be rented by our guests.
We rent out bikes to explore the lagoa and also offer to our guests a wood-heated sauna and hot-pot (kind of jacuzzi) to relax!
The lagoon and the seaside offer a lot of possibilities for outdoor-activities. Nearest beaches at Bom Successo and Foz do Arelho are around 15 – 20 min by car. Peniche and Nazaré, the famous surfspots here are around 25 -35 min away. Lisbon is easy to reach within 1 hour (by bus or car) and the nearby towns like Obidos and Caldas da Rainha offer a lot of traditional portuguese live and culture.
