Guestbook comments from the owner
Per and Randi from Bergen, Norway.

We staid in the villa in July 2011. This was our third stay in this marvellous place. We visited with our daughters and their families and had a lovely time. The area is very interesting, the house is excellent, and the hosts are just great.

I live right next to the villa, therefore I take pride in my property and am responsive to any of my renters needs. Since I am local, I deal my guests directly either in english, german, italian or french.

Gianpiero purchased this villa in 1995

As the 4 bedrooms, lounge and kitchen are facing the central courtyard, you dont feel lost even if you are living alone or as a couple in it (no long and dark corridors, no stairs separating living and sleeping area)

WONDERFUL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful place and very attentive owner.

We stayed for a week, with 3 young kids and 2 grandparents - we all had a fantastic time - and wish we could have stayed for longer. The place could not be more highly recommended.

STAY DURING JULY 2012

  • 5 of 5
We arranged a family reunion with my brother and his wife from Australia and other siblings.We booked the villa because it catered for this type of group, each having their own en suite facilities.The villa was spacious, tastefully decorated and was well equipped with a hugh range of kitchen equipment.There are several good restaurants in the village, all within walking distance (not all of them are listed on review sites) We considered own transport essential , although their is a regular bus service to Sintra.
The only issue that may be a problem for some( ie sun worshippers) is a seemingly constant Atlantic breeze, however a short drive to Cascais takes you to miles of excellent beaches.
The owner Gianpiero could not be more friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our break away especially leaving a typically wet UK Summer.We would highly recommend a visit.

SPACIOUS VILLA IN LOVELY VILLAGE

  • 4 of 5
Very efficient and thorough booking process resulted in those who self drove arriving before the local taxi driver. Gianpiero very customer oriented and genuinely wants to help make your stay perfect. The Villa is quite traditional and very spacious and is populated with numerous curios and collections no doubt added over the last few decades. Families with small children (ours are 7, 11 & 14) should bear in mind that many of these are easily accessible, plus the internal layout has numerous low level stairs and hard floors. Villa feels like you are staying in someone's home. Pool (in October) was cold but served for a bracing dip on a number of occasions. First class beaches are a mere 10 minutes away. Village has excellent restaurants and locals are very welcoming. Lovely part of the world.
Care Hire is recommended.

PERFECT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
There's only one "negative" thing about this villa: it sets the standards for future holidays really high. Fully equipped, well-maintained, this sophisticated villa is just perfect, no matter what type of holiday you're looking for. More than this, there's something this villa gives you and you cannot see in the pictures and descriptions: a feeling of well-being that will stay with you for the whole holiday.
With Lisbon, Sintra, Cabo da Roca, popular and wild beaches in easy reach, all you need is a car and good weather to complete the setup for a dream vacation in Portugal. Like me and my family had.
Dear Gianpiero, Dear Paul, thank you for your hospitality! I'm looking forward to seeing you again!

SATISFACTORY STAY

  • 2 of 5
My family stayed at the villa for one week in the summer of 2010. It is a very spacious villa with a well stocked kitchen and private rooms/bathrooms for all guests. It is located in a nice quiet town with many nice restaurants. It is a short drive to many sites and beaches.

Unfortunately we had some concerns with the villa. There were many mothballs in the house which created a smell that we found overwhelming even upon their removal. The daily maid service failed to dust and clean to our standards. The ocean is barely visible from the deck. The pool is not heated so we found it too cold to swim in.

Our stay was satisfactory but I will not be returning to this villa any time soon.

Owner's Response: Oh, my God, how we remember about your disappointment about the mothballs, which have disappeared completely from the house since then and we want to use this space for reapologizing. During their daily 3h work at the property both, our Rosaria and Gracinda had difficulty to dust and clean to the usual house standards, as they were always asked to stop using the vacuum cleaner for not disturbing the little baby who was taking a nap - but they managed nevertheless to make daily all the eight beds, to give an "hotel service" to the 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, as well as tiding the kitchen, diswasher, changing sheets and towels etc. etc. You had difficulty seing the ocean, because the mist on those days did not allow it. The pool (as advertised) is not heated and its temperature during the summer months is constantly 26º to 28ºC. In this owner response which will be desplayed together with the review, we would like to encourage the reader to visit also the webpage of the property at RentalSystems Ltd (all our HomeAway bookings are directed through it) and read the collection of 43 verified reviews from other very satisfied renters, so he can see also the sunface of this property) To read the above mentioned verified reviews visit www.makebooking.co.uk and enter the reference number of the property which is the 21027

The village is hanging on the wooded hill of the Serra de Sintra, also known as Serra da Lua 'The Moon Mountain;' The coast is 1.2 Km away and offers spectacular scenery with Cabo da Roca (most western point of Continental Europe on a 140 m high cliff) and big sandy beaches (magnificent Ursa beach (ca. 30 Min. walking distance); Adraga beach (10 min drive) was ranked as one of the ’20 perfect European beaches’ by the Sunday Times; Guincho beach) partly stretching out below cliffs.

Other Activities: bird watching

Golf: There are several golf courses within 10 km radius, 6 full length golf courses are within 20 min drive. These include Penha Longa which is only 15 minutes away, the famous Estoril Golf Club, Quinta da Beloura near Sintra and Clube de Campo at Belas, north of the Royal Palace at Queluz. Next to Penha Longa are the practice facilities of the Academia International de Golf.
