When we arrived at the villa, Paolo, the owner and his wife and baby were waiting for us. The villa was beautiful, modern, spacious and perfectly described in the listing. We were grandparents, parents and two young boys. It was ideal. the main floor was a generous great room with a beautiful modern kitchen and looking out to a pool, new spa (!) and grassy play area for the kids. We had picnic lunches out on the lawn and several evenings, we cooked in and had dinner had the lovely dining table. Everything was provided that one would require in the kitchen. The upstairs had a master bedroom suite with very large bath and a twin bed room sharing bath with another master bedroom. It was ideal for us. There was a 4th bedroom downstairs with game players, etc. The kids used it as their play room. Each morning, we walked up the hill to a cute coffee shop. In same little "strip center" there was a small market and a beauty salon. We used both. Nearby - a 10 minute car ride, is beach town Ericeira and lovely village, Mafra. 30 minutes away is Sintra - a gorgeous historical town. This was my 3rd homeaway rental and without question, the best. Paolo is a great host - one night, he connected us with a chef who cooked (and taught) and stayed for dinner. Paolo checked in with us frequently, to make sure we had what we needed. It was a perfect vacation spot.
