Portugal’s Quintas de Óbidos Country Club SA team has won a prestigious Home Overseas award in recognition of its excellent project design, amenities and marketing for its exclusive development of 79 private villas on the Silver Coast in Portugal.

Located on the Silver Coast, Quintas de Óbidos comprises just 79 villas in 57 hectares interspersed with natural landscaping and a series of fresh water lakes to provide natural wildlife habitats in a wonderful setting in the Portuguese countryside, between the Atlantic coast and the Obidos Lagoon. Each villa has been architecturally designed to reflect its Portuguese heritage and is set within its own private landscaped grounds of 1.3 acres (5,200 m2) with an average of 8,500 sq ft (800 m2) of living space. The exceptional onsite facilities include an Equestrian Centre designed by the world’s number one lady show jumper, Jessica Kürten, as well as an exclusive Country Club which boasts a wide range of amenities, including a restaurant and spa, two swimming pools, two tennis courts, a sports pitch and a children’s play area.

The overall scheme was designed by world renowned master-planners, Wimberly, Allison, Tong & Goo (WATG) who worked closely with four top Portuguese architects – Castello Branco, Guedes Amorim, Ginestal Machado and Miguel Saraiva – to create the award winning project, providing an integrated scheme that truly replicates its heritage and respects the environment.

Miguel Abreu, Managing Director of Quintas de Óbidos, said: “From the outset, it was extremely important for Quintas de Óbidos to offer purchasers top quality private villas and excellent facilities in an idyllic setting. Through careful and intricate planning, we have created a truly desirable holiday complex with outstanding accommodation and facilities and as such, have already sold 24 villas off-plan. The construction process has been meticulously planned so we can deliver a first class project on-time and within budget. The infrastructure is now fully in place, with work starting on the first villas before the end of 2008. We’re delighted to have won such a prestigious award, and proud that our development has achieved recognition for its excellence.”
