LOVELY LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week (2 adults, 3 kids 2,4,6) and had a lovely time. The location is great - Praia d'adraga is a spectacular beach and is a few mins walk away. The mullers are a lovely couple who speak good english and were kind to us and our children. The heated pool is a real bonus. There is a small supermarket just up the road which is open until 8pm which is very useful on arrival.

NEVER A DULL MOMENT

  • 5 of 5
What we remember best about Almocageme are the cliff walks along the coast. It is really impressive scenery. These walks are not recommended for young children but as a couple we took a lunch and walked for hours and took many pictures. We also though that the Sintra palaces were imprressive and we especially liked Quinta da Regaleira and Convento dos Capuchos. We did not have any boring moments during our week, well worth the money spent.

INTERESTING PLACE

  • 4 of 5
The Sintra mountain and its coast are quite unforgettable. There is so much to see and many places to spend the day. While the beaches along this coast are surrounded by high cliffs and have ocean waves, in Cascais about 15 minutes away, there are calm seas, very hot weather but crowded beaches. The Muller house is simple but friendly. The outside area is sunny and we enjoyed the warm water of the pool. The owners keep chickens behind their house and gave us eggs. In general the local people are friendly and used to tourists. There are many cheap restaurants once you get to know where they are. We spent a memorable week in Portugal.

DISAPPOINTING HOLIDAY

  • 3 of 5
We spent two weeks at Casa Muller in July 2010 - our first visit to Portugal. The house is as describe in the schedule, although the furniture etc is quite shabby, and it is quite cramped, but the garden is lovely. The owners are very friendly and helpful...we had various problems with appliances, and these were fixed quickly. However, for english-speaking visitors, it should be pointed out that since the owners are German, all channels on the satellite TV are german...we could watch the weather foreast for Baden- Baden, but not for Colares. The local beach is beautiful, as is Guincho beach closer to Cascais. We unfortunately found that the villa is almost in a small microclmate...clouds rolled in from the Atlantic, and seemed to get trapped by the surrounding hills, not dispersing for days.It was actually quite chilly!! If we travelled a few kilometres towards Sintra or Cascais, as we got away from the area, the weather improved and it was hot and sunny. But since our idea had been to spend time relaxing at the villa and praia Adraga, the weather was a major problem. (Of course this was last year, and who knows, it may not occur again.) Another downside was that because of the weather, it was also very windy, so much so that the red flag was often flying at the beach. It had a yellow flag on better days, but never a green one. Our children had hoped to do some body-boarding, but were unable to, since the lifeguards were, rightly, very vigilant and would not let anyone in the sea. We saw a well-built man swept off his feet in ankle-deep water as the under-tow is so strong.
On a more positive note, Sintra itself was lovely, with lots of monuments to visit. Not appealing for most teenagers though! And Cascais is a resort with quite a lot going on, I imagine. And the local seafood was great!
Sadly I would not be able to recommend this area to a friend, as we really did not enjoy our holiday much, however the property would be okay if you aren't too fussy about the weather, and there were only two people staying.

WE LOVED PORTUGAL AND CASA MULLER

  • 5 of 5
Now back home we often remember the wonderful time we had in Portugal and Casa Muller. The ocean and the beautiful garden are in our minds everyday. We hope to spend our next holidays again in Casa Muller.

AMAZING LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Casa Muller. It was perfect for our 2 year old son. There were many small animals that are kept by the owners and wonderful gardens for him to explore. We were surprised that the owners lived in the main house on the property and were usually working in the gardens. This gave us more of the feeling of visiting people rather than having complete privacy. The owners were wonderful, generous and welcoming and we did have a great time with them. They tended to all of our needs. The location was everything we could have wanted. Unless you plan to hang out at the beach all day or hiking, you definitly need a car.
