Secluded Country Cottage

  • 4 of 5
If you like peace and tranquility this is the place for you. The cottage is in a rural setting with access to extensive grounds and is clean and comfortable. Perfect for getting away from it all. On top of that, the hospitality of Alice and Stewart was wonderful. I have already recommended this property to friends.

Owner's Response: And they also enjoyed clear, sunny days. Our North European visitors are generally surprised to learn that, on average, Portugal's Summer continues well into September, making the Autumn a good time to visit.

Rustic charm

  • 5 of 5
We like Portugal and have been several times but we chose this location as an alternative to the touristy Algarve. It's situated about half an hour's drive north of Lisbon but that puts it into the rural Portugal where normal life takes place. Close by are scattered villages and bits of history. Not far away is the town of Malvera with its extensive street market with local leather goods; lots of bargain clothing and shoes; fresh fruit and veg from farms nearby; and the some of the wierdest fish not found in Tesco's back home!
The 'cottage' is situated on a largish small-holding a little away from the main house where the owners live. It is more than cottage size being the original farmhouse and has lots of original styling. So the combination means that you can stay at home and relax in the 'garden' and enjoy the peace ( and swim if you want ) or use the place as a base to travel near or far. LIsbon, the Atlantic coast and the historical palaces of Sintra and Mafra are easy days out by car. We did a bit of both - stay and away.

Stewart and Alice are more than happy to help out with local knowledge, the language and directions. Stewart will also regale with tales of dealing with Portuguese bureaucracy. The weather is great, being a scale up in temperature on back home in UK but still produced some rain - only warmer. However, Alice will tell you that unless it's 30 degrees, its cold.
A very enjoyable week all round.

Excellent place to unwind

  • 5 of 5
I can say without a shadow of a doubt that I had a very memorable stay. The cottage is a delight with a wonderful secluded terrace , a great place for breakfast with wonderful views. The house is well equipped and very clean and the area is delightfully different - a taste of the real Portugal. We had an especially good time at a local fiesta.
However my holiday could have been ruined as my suitcase failed to arrive with me! Alice and Stewart were so brilliant helping me keep track with the airline. Alice loaned me some clothes and provided me with a toothbrush etc. they also helped me by taking me to a nearby shopping outlet where I was able to get some essentials. The suitcase did catch up with me before I had to go home! As hosts they really went the extra mile and we're very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. As I said I had a great time. It's such a peaceful spot to unwind and recharge your batteries yet there is plenty to see and do around the area should you wish to. I have no hesitation in recommending this property to all my friends and family and hope to return again myself soon.

Pareltje op steenworp afstand van Lissabon

  • 5 of 5
Voor gezinnen met wat oudere kinderen is dit een heerlijke plek om tot rust te komen - en toch alle bezienswaardigheden binnen een uurtje reistijd te kunnen bereiken. In Lissabon en omgeving is veel moois te zien - en met de auto sta je binnen 20 min. midden in Lissabon of op het vliegveld. Een auto is aan te raden, ook al stopt de bus een paar keer per dag voor de deur. Hoewel je binnen 5 minuten op de snelweg bent, hoor je die niet omdat het huis in de beschutting van de heuvels ligt. Het is, gezeten voor het huis, heerlijk rustig.
Het huis biedt ruim voldoende voorzieningen voor een heerlijke vakantie. Het ontbrak ons aan niets wezenlijks; ook al is er geen TV aanwezig, er is wel de mogelijkheid DVD's te bekijken en via een zwak wifi signaal draadloos te mailen.
Dit huis is het enige huis is dat de eigenaar verhuurt, het beschut liggende zwembad hoeft dus niet met andere gasten te worden gedeeld. De eigenaar is een gastvrije engelsman, die vanwege zijn portugese vrouw ook prima portugees spreekt. Het echtpaar is heel behulpzaam, bijvoorbeeld toen we onverwachts naar de garage moesten met een lekke band.
Het huis zelf heeft de keuken, woonkamer, sanitaire voorzieningen en de ouderslaapkamer beneden en in de ruimte onder het dak twee bedden die geschikt zijn voor wat oudere kinderen - dit vanwege de half open trap naar boven. Er is een wasmachine aanwezig, en ook een barbecue.
Autorijden in Portugal is heel overzichtelijk, wij vinden de portugese rijstijl in vergelijking met de nederlandse toleranter en voorzichtiger. Het prijspeil ligt onder dat in Nederland, in elke wat grotere plaats vind je voldoende supermarkten (veel Lidl's, Minipreco, Pingo Doce (soort AH) en soms een Aldi) waar echt van alles te koop is.

Owner's Response: If your Dutch is not fluent you'll just have to accept my word that these guests enjoyed their holiday! They used their hire car to good effect, finding new places of interest and different routes every day, proving that there is a lot to see in this area. It is a good base for touring as well as for spending days sightseeing in Lisbon.

Ribas de Cima

  • 5 of 5
Would recommend this lovely place for anyone who wants to get away from it all but still have loads to see and do within a short distance. Have just come back from our second visit and already planning a third - and we never usually go back to the same place.
The cottage is very clean and well equipped and there is always something to see in the extensive grounds - the dogs are friendly and affectionate companions. The pool is cool and welcome after sightseeing or sunbathing and there is plenty of shady areas to sit with a book and a glass of something cold.
Alice and Stewart are wonderful hosts who do so much to ensure your stay is a good one - over and above expectations! They will offer good suggestions where to visit and will search for information about things to do locally if you so wish.
The little village shop is well stocked with basic needs (at supermarket prices) and the bus service, although not frequent, means you don't need to rent a car to get to Lisbon or Loures.
If you get a chance, the local village 'festas' are interesting and good fun as is the local market.

Owner's Response: And there are still new things for these visitors to discover in the local area when they come back for the third time - without needing a car!

Cosy Country Cottage

  • 4 of 5
If you are looking for a cosy Country Cottage you have come to the right place. But if you are looking for a five star luxury Hotel you must look elsewhere.
The Cottage is well equipped it has everything you need. It is well maintained and kept clean.
You will experience a very relaxed atmosphere here. And Alice and Stewart are very hospitable and friendly hosts. They were keen to offer advice on what to see and where to go on tours.
Here you can discover a peaceful countryside and at the same time you are only a small drive away from Lisbon and the sea. It is a perfect jumping-off point for tours in the Lisbon region.
Our children also enjoyed playing with the dogs and looking for fresh eggs from the chickens.
