This place is so romantic and I can just imagine being a kid and staying here and seeing the castle glowing on the hill above while playing in the gorgeous swimming pool... The apartments are adorable and so are the Dutch hosts. Irma and Oskar left international careers in science to open a B&B in Portugal. Good thing they speak so many languages! The comfy bus takes 50 minutes to Lisbon, then it's back to the quinta for beaches or the pool! This place is magical.

Room Tip: All the rooms face the same direction, the pool.

We had a very spacious two room suite; good sized bathroom with shower, living area with couch and table, dining area with table and chairs and a fully equipped kitchen with all the utensils you could ever want. The kitchen is set up for those who want to cook their own meals. The grounds are exquisite. Several acres with a citrus and apple orchard, large barn, swimming pool and a well tended herb and vegetable garden. The on site parking is quite roomy.
Quinta da Olivia is outside the walls and easy to find. It is only a 10 minute safe walk into the walled city. Irma and Oskar provide information on day trips and insider tips on when to use or not to use the freeways.
The breakfast was always more than we could eat, meats, cheeses, fresh fruit, home made jams, bread and croissants, yogurt, cereal and fresh squeezed juice and coffee.
Very spacious quiet room in a lovely setting

Lovingly restored Quinta in well-kept grounds.
Excellent breakfast with delicious home-made jams with interesting taste-experiences i.e. blackberry and thyme!
Great base for exploring the Laguna of Obidos.
Thank you, Oskar and Irma!

Everything about Quinta da Olivia is great. Firstly the hosts Oskar and Irma are delightful, they are great hosts and lovely people. Nothing is two much trouble for them, they are helpful and knowledgeable .
The Quinta is on the edge of town and set in huge beautifully kept grounds, there is plenty of free parking on site inside the gates. The swimming pool and sun loungers are a bonus on a hot day.
The rooms are perfect and everything has been thought of, bed was comfortable and the bathroom clean. Breakfast was in the main house and was served at a communal table. I usually prefer a separate table but all the other guests were so nice and interesting it was nice to all sit together and chat. Breakfast is served over a two hour period so not all guests were there at the same time. Lovely fresh food, bread , fruit cheeses and freshly boiled eggs as each guest arrived.
There are bottles of local wine available to buy from the honesty bar and drink on the terrace outside our room or sitting by the pool. A lovely view of the sun setting over the medieval castle can be enjoyed in the evening. Some great restaurants in the town which is just a short walk away and Oskar provides torches for the walk home.
A really lovely stay in a beautiful town.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms would be nice. But if you e-mail the hosts and tell you what you require they will advise you on the right room .

Perfect home base for several days or more to explore the area if you have a car. Oskar and Irma speak English, Dutch, German (of course Portuguese and probably Spanish and French???) and are really nice, friendly people. The small gardens and pool area are pretty and peaceful. The location is very quiet while still being convenient to Obidos and 2 major highways. The recently updated rooms are very comfortable and clean. You don’t even miss having a TV because you’re either eating their fantastic breakfast or relaxing outside. With a little driving, you can get to Alcoboca, Batalha, Tomar, Fatima, Peniche and other little towns, beaches, cliffs, or castles.

Room Tip: From what I could tell, all the rooms seem good.
