Overview

Mafra Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

End 19th century farmhouse, restored, 2 bedrooms, 200 sqm private courtyard

The accommodation, a half hour drive from Lisbon, is a restored farm ('quinta') built at the end of the 19th century in the village of Zambujal. Zambujal lies on one of the coastal hills south of the sea-side town of Ericeira, between Carvoeira and the district capital, Mafra. The first picture, taken from the little square in front of the Casa Zambujal, shows (from l to r): the wine house, and behind the gate, the former cows' stable, the two storied main house (Casa Principal, sleeps 4 in two bedrooms) and, half-hidden by the yard wall, the former donkey stable. The 200 sqm yard is paved with Portuguese cobblestones and includes a small garden with grapes, roses and herbs. The place offers privacy with free WIFI all over the place. You can enjoy the quietude of a rural village reading a book or having breakfast outside. It serves perfectly as a base for exploring Lisbon, enjoying the many nearby beaches, visiting the surrounding historical towns, as well as for a surf holiday or trips to the golf courses in the area Downstairs is a living room of 20 sqm with a 3p-sofa, two leather fauteuils, TV and a fire place with woodstove. Separed by a staircase leading to the first floor and a small toilet, the kitchen, as big as the livingroom, is fully equiped. It further contains a dining table and a cupboard. Upstairs are the two bed rooms. One with a double bed, a wardrobe, a commode and a small bathroom-en-suite with shower, toilet and wash basin. The other bedroom has two 1-p beds and a wardrobe. Outside, next to the kitchen is a sheltered sun terrace with a shadow (see photo). The farm house, Casa Principal, is situated on a courtyard on which you are the only tenant and where you still have an extra bathroom with shower, toilet, wash basin and washing machine.

The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to prepare your meals (including the items you mention). Most of the fresh food you can buy in the little shop next to Cafe Zambujal is local. Here you can also order your fresh bread for the next day. In Mafra’s supermarkets (5 km) you find everything, for instance, a big variety of daily-fresh fish.

Wynaj?ty domek (Casa Principal) w pe?ni spe?ni? oczekiwania naszej 4-osobowej rodziny. Na miejscu okaza?o si?, ?e przedstawiona w Internecie oferta jest rzetelna i prawdziwa. By?o czysto, przytulnie i stylowo (meble, sprz?ty, naczynia pochodz?ce z domów rodzinnych W?a?cicieli). Gospodarze byli sympatyczni i ?yczliwi (s?u?yli rad? i pomoc?) a jednocze?nie nienachalni. Mi?o b?dziemy wspomina? po?egnalne spotkanie z Nimi - zaprosili nas do siebie do domu.
Zambujal to ma?a spokojna miejscowo??, której zalet? jest lokalizacja – jest oddalona o kilka kilometrów od Mafry, w której znajduj? si? restauracje, kawiarnie (pyszna kawa i ciasteczka) i supermarkety. W Mafrze atrakcj? jest monumentalny Palácio Nacional de Mafra, wzniesiony w XVIII w., który obejmuje klasztor, katedr?, pa?ac królewski oraz bibliotek?. W pobli?u znajduje si? równie? kilka ?adnych (piaszczystych) pla?. Dojazd do Lizbony nie zajmuje wi?cej ni? 40 min. W sumie jest to miejsce godne polecenia.

The rented house (Casa Principal) fully met the expectations of our four-person family. After arrival it turned out that the online offer is fair and true. It was clean, cozy and stylish (furniture, appliances, dishes from owners’ family houses). The hosts were friendly and kind (they offered advice and assistance) while being unobtrusively. We will warmly remember farewell meeting with them - they invited us to his home.
Zambujal is a small quiet town, which advantage is in its location - it is a few kilometers away from Mafra, where there are restaurants, cafes (delicious coffee and cookies) and supermarkets. The main attraction in Mafra is the monumental Palácio Nacional de Mafra, built in the eighteenth century, which includes the monastery, cathedral, the royal palace and a library. Nearby the village there are also few nice, sandy beaches. Getting to Lisbon does not take more than 40 minutes. In summary, a place worth recommending.

Wonderful Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5
From the start a warm welcome from Willem & Maria, they where so helpful and nice to a wondeful home the whole stay was perfect.

The farm house was very clean and well set out with every amenity that you would need,as an aspiaring chef (in my eyes) there was all you would need for a good evening meal, although the owners where on site the where unintrusive during your stay but willing to help at an instant if requested.

All in all a very nice stay with a very nice couple in a quite sleepy town but not to far away from nice beaches and sites of interest, Loved the mozzy net! sleep with windows open and not a bite EXCELLENT!! so book your stay you will not be disapointed at all.

Character farmhouse rental in Zambujal

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful two week stay at his character farmhouse rental in Zambujal. The accommodation was spacious, tidy and clean. Our host Willem and Maria were very friendly and really couldn't do enough to ensure are stay went perfectly. We had had access to Wi-Fi, which are 3 boys loved as they could keep in contact with their friends on Facebook and YouTube. We were only 10 mins drive from 2 fantastic beaches. Wonderful surf, fine soft sand, blue seas and fantastic scenery with picture book sunsets every evening. Mafra palace and Sintra are well worth visiting, lots of history to marvel at. If you want a quiet peaceful place to relax and recharge then this is the place to go.

Summertime early May

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a great week in May 2011. Overall a very nice location with friendly and caring owners next door, who are always Open to help and support in any case. The house is tastefully renovated and furnished, without the "Burro" sufficient for a family with 2 children. For chilly days, 2 movable heaters are available. The Ocean is just some 5 Minutes away and we could even go into the water early May. To Lisbon center, its just 30-45 min by car (which you need in this remote place), a selection of big Supermarkets (open on Sunday!) within 2 minutes towards Mafra. We definitively recommend this place and would come again.

To Maria and Willem: Thanks a lot for this nice and relaxing week!

Parfait ! Perfect !

  • 5 of 5
Chère Maria et Cher Willem,

Merci pour votre accueil. Vous avez su être des hôtes parfaits, attentifs et discrets.
La maison est d'une propreté parfaite et il ne manque rien pour y passer un agréable séjour.
Zambujal est un petit village typique, tranquille, peu éloigné de la mer ce qui permet d'éviter les bains de foule en haute saison.
Un véhicule est nécessaire pour découvrir cette jolie côte assez sauvage.
Nous recommandons cette location aux personnes qui souhaitent découvrir le Portugal.

Encore merci pour votre accueil

Pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5
We were at the house for about one week (august 2010) with 7 persons. The family slept in the house, we (3 adults) slept at Casa de Burro. Both houses were absolutely fantastic. They both were clean, well decorated and had nice facilitys. Especially the kitchen was well equiped and pleasant to use.
The owners were very friendly and always prepared to give advice and even helped with giving a nice hard waling route.
Every morning we went to the cafe where we bought our bread. The cafe is at the end of the street of Casa Zambujal, a walk for about 3 minutes or so.
We used the house as a base for visiting Lissabon and, of course, for going to the beach. By car this ride was about 10 minutes, nice sightseeing. In Lissabon we parked our car in the neighborhood of the center and changed our car for using te touristbus. This bus was fantastic for discovering the nice streets and places in Lissabon. A great city!!!
We had a wunderful week at this house and we will recommeend this property to everyone.

Car: recommended

The village of Zambujal itself is very quiet. The house and courtyard face a little square across which pass neighbours on foot, some local cars (also groceries, fish), the mailman on motorbike and every morning and evening a flock of sheep. Within a 100m you are in the countryside and the nearest beach is at 5-10 minutes by car.

Apart from a small coffeebar/restaurant named FAGULHA, you find only one little shop (just basics) situated inside/next to CAFE ZAMBUJAL which, coming from Mafra, you find on the right side of the main road, just before you take the turn off to the Casa. Most (little) shops in Mafra are concentrated around the village square just in front of the Convento, a very large old monastery/palace. There are also, as in every portuguese town, a food market and at the outskirts several supermarkets (Continente, Pingo Doce, Modelo, Intermarche, Lidl) most of them open at night and on Sundays.

The village Zambujal is along the local road N549 between the town of Mafra and Carvoeira, another village at the coast. The new A21 connecting Malveira and Ericeira lies in the valley north of Zambujal and is neither visible nor audible from the courtyard.

Numerous hiking tracks offer the possibility to explore the coastal landscape on foot. Excellent motorways and country roads further connects, for example, Mafra to Lisbon-centre; by car in half an hour, Downtown you could leave your car in one of the (underground) parking lots and continue on public transport (day ticket). You also can park your car next to one of the metro stations away from the city centre.

Another possibility is to take the bus In Mafra, in front of the Convento (every 50 minutes) in less than an hour. In Mafra-Gare (14 km) you park the car at the old beautiful railway-station and take the train to Lisbon centre or to the north in direction to Caldas de Rainha. The Lizandro and Sao Juliao beaches (surf-schools) are 3-5 km away. Ericeira (beaches, fish restaurants) is at 5 km. The Sintra area (25 km to the south) is a world heritage site within a micro-climate zone with a famous Moor's castle build on top of an old volcanic rock formation. Here and further south you find 18-holes golfcourses and the more fashionable Estoril-Cascais beaches (35 km). To the north lies the centuries-old village of Obidos (50 km, as well a world heritage site worth visiting.

Apart from visiting nearby beaches, surrounding historical towns and Lisbon, other activities to consider:

(-) Horseback-riding centre in Gorcinhos (3 km), fully equipped, with possibility of instruction and out-riding

(-) Surfing is practiced all year round at nearby beaches as São Julião, Lizandro and Ribeira d' Ilhas (worldcup-tournament) and trips could include the beaches Lourenço, Santa Cruz further north. In Ericeira you find many surf shops.

(-) Explore the geology of creteaceous and jurassic formations along the beachcliffs in large outcrops rich in fossils and or visit the Dinosaur museum in Lourinha.

(-) 9 superb 16 hole golf courses are concentrated in the region around Sintra and north of Estoril and Cascais.

(-) South of Lisbon, on the other side of the river Tejo, you can visit national parks and nature reserves along the Costa Azul, such as Arrabida and the Sado estuary with its dolphins, flamingos and characteristic vegetation and landscapes.
