We stayed at “Uma Casa com vista para o mar” for 2 weeks in August and were absolutely delighted. We were a party of 5 adults with 2 teenage boys and this spacious villa had plenty of room to accommodate us all easily.

Antonio and Helena, who had been a great help with the booking process, greeted us on our arrival and showed us around the villa. They made sure that we were comfortable and answered any questions we had. They obviously have great pride in their house.

This four-storey villa with a large corkscrew staircase is spacious, well equipped, and has great natural light levels. The bedrooms and communal rooms are tastefully furnished, decorated and comfortably appointed with a lot of storage space. The bathrooms too are luxurious.

The view from anywhere at the front of the house, but especially from the upper dining room, is truly astonishing. While eating in here every evening we watched the coming and going of the many boats in the bay of Sesimbra, and as one of our party is a keen amateur astronomer it was ideal for star, and moon, gazing.

The secluded pool area is situated in the top garden. A gazebo provides plenty of shade on hot days and we found it lovely to sit and eat lunch here.

From our experience, Sesimbra is ideally situated for days out. Lisbon is only half an hour’s drive and the great Palaces of Sintra about 45 minutes. There are many stunningly beautiful well-managed sandy beaches within a short driving distance. Whilst Sesimbra with its narrow streets is quaint, with a strong fishing heritage, we found the beach here too busy and commercialised for our tastes particularly during the weekend periods.

We had a wonderful holiday and would highly recommend this lovely villa as a holiday home. Also a big thank you to Antonio and Helena for making it such a pleasurable and relaxing place to stay.

Owner's Response: At 4 years ago we were looking for a small farm in country side of the Arrábida Natural Park which is in the neighborhood of Sesimbra. But some day a misunderstand of a real estate agency took us to Sesimbra and to this house which immediately had captivate our emotions and makes to induce a 180 degrees turn in our projects and dreams. Persisting what has became our new goal and since then, all our efforts were directed in a overall improvement of original house since the roof until the entire water pipe tubes including of course the interiors and all external areas such as the swimming pool and both garden areas. We though to recreate a beach house interiors, light but with a design approach in comfortable ambiences and we decide to offer this house to our guests as it was for ourselves. What we mean is that in spite we had decided to rent the house, nothing in terms of decoration, equipment and furniture has suffered a minimum change and stays just like we use it for ourselves. We simply like to offer a house that we would like to found if we were visitors looking for a holiday house. And that is why we fill of course, highly rewarded specially when we hear or simply see and felt our guests pleasure for the house accommodations the decoration the interior architecture or the beautiful sea view. We also fill that we have been rewarded by outstanding behavior of our guests which has been extremely careful and responsible in the house. The owners Helena and Antonio

Something different

  • 5 of 5

After 2 years in the Algarve, we this year decided for another part of Portugal. When searching for a house we first looked for the more known areas (Estoril, Sintra) north of Lisbon. By accident we were drawn to the advertisement of the Villa of Antonio and Helena Ramalho in Sesimbra.

During the booking process our questions about the location and the house were answered honestly (yes it is a steep climb from the beach to the house, but is manageable even for 9 year olds)and quick. Also communication about payments was followed up without delay.

Upon arrival we were welcomed in a very friendly way. We got an extensive tour around the house and everything was explained in detail. The house is large, beautiful and comfortable. Decoration is very tasteful and of a high standard. the view of the house over the town and bay of Sesimbra is magnificent. We spent many days on the top floor around the pool, reading, swimming, eating, drinking en enjoying the view. Our young children also enjoyed themselves in the pool, but for them the best feature of the house was Wi-Fi access, so they could use their computers

The area of Sesimbra and Setubal is totally different from the Algarve. Nature is more beautiful, food is better, prices are lower and is less crowded, except from the weekends when a lot of people from Lisbon flood the beaches. Don't expect everyone in the area to speak English, get used to use your hands and feet to make clear what you would like.

As there is no "what to do/where to go" brochure in the house, searching the internet, studying the maps and talking to people on the beach (very friendly and helpful), learned us where to go and how to get there the best way. If you visit Lisbon, drive to Seixal, park your car and use the Ferry and public transport. Don't forget to visit the World Expo site and the Oceanarium. Also the Arrabida national Park and its beaches are beautiful. First drive to Setubal and come back through the park as the roads are one-way during the day. The advertisement states that a car is recommended but we would like to state that a car is necessary for both shopping and exploit the area.

During our stay it was very easy to get hold of Antonio when we had any questions. As we had holiday we booked a cleaner. She did a wonderful job and so did the translator on our I-pad (she only spoke Portuguese).

We can fully recommend the house and its owners. We will definitely return in the future

Beautiful villa, stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Antonio and Helena have a beautiful villa near Sesimbra. The villa has absolutely stunning views, especially from the top floor dining room and from the pool area. We spent nearly all evenings having barbeque and enjoying the view.

There are four bedrooms, three well equipped baths and one separate toilet. The two kitchens are very well equipped too. Dishing machines in both kitchens, gas and electricity cookers, a lot of cups, plates, glasses etc.

The pool area is clean, has good sun beds and a nice table and chairs in the shadow.

The villa is very safe and clean; we can highly recommend it to friends staying. Many stairs can be a problem to small children, otherwise it is suitable to families with children as well.

Antonio gave us a good introduction to the villa and the surrounding area. He was also always available with prompt answers to my questions by email also before our arrival.

Excellent quality-price ratio.

The two small things missing were a shower in the pool area (which is under way) and a information folder containing necessary details of the house, village, shops, restaurants, maps etc.

We visited Sesimbra many times; it is in walking distance from the villa. There are a couple of supermarkets (by car), nice castle above the villa and several good vineries to visit nearby. Also it is worth to visit Cabo Espichel - with good sea views.

Lisbon area is only less than an hour away. Also if you are interested in outlet shopping, in Alcochete, there is a huge outlet paradise, Freeport, only less than an hour from the villa.

Thank you so much for everything Antonio and Helena! Would like to return someday... We enjoyed our stay! Ritva with friends

Owner's Response: Our guests opinion are the best way to improve the conditions we have to offer which have been our main goal since the beginning and the cause of the continuous improvement in the decoration in space remodulation and overall conditions. Here we have also a very good idea of the guests expectation and appreciation about the house and also the interesting places to visit in Sesimbra surroundings. Many thanks to this very nice group and all our past guest which we had a privileged to receive and which had turn possible to improve our Sesimbra house.

October Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Eight adult members of my family stayed in the Sesimbra villa for a week in mid-October. We were delighted with the accommodations! The home is spacious and comfortable, and the views from all levels are spectacular. The housekeeping was very good and the kitchen was well-equipped, which was a bonus to this group of avid cooks. We also appreciated the washing machine for convenience.

Antonio and Helena are extremely helpful hosts! Throughout the booking process, Antonio answered my many questions thoroughly. He was always available throughout the stay as well.

We easily traveled to Lisbon and Sintra via public transportation using directions provided by the Antonio. We also ate in several good restaurants in Sesimbra and thoroughly enjoyed selecting our fish fresh from the case! The wine is wonderful, inexpensive and available seemingly everywhere!

I think that the house layout for parties with elderly or physically-impaired persons, or families with very small children, might be difficult to navigate because of the many levels, although I could have happily stayed on the terrace level all week. For our group, it was ideal.

I would highly recommend this rental property to friends and family - and in fact, I have!

Owner's Response: The words of one of our first visitors from the other side of the North Atlantic sea, are extremely generous to us. The couple and their friends also are impecabble in its behaviour, and so was a pleasure for us to receive and talk with so kind and generous guests, who appreciate the house, its conditions and peculiarities and what the surround region has to offer.

A nice place

  • 4 of 5

Being at the Sesimbra house is a very pleasant experience. The facilities are unique and the view is astonishing. Combine this with a nice pool, kitchen at the bottom and at the top of the house near the pool. Then you have a perfect place to spend your holiday.

It is recommended that you bring a car. It takes some time to go from Sesimbra center to the house. Not because it is a long walk but the walk is steep. Furthermore, if you want to see more than Sesimbra a car is needed. And it is worth a while to look at Sesimbra and its surrounding. Just above the house, there is a nice castle with a beautiful view. Nearby there is other castles and protected areas that nearly demands a visit. In Sesimbra it selves, there are really nice restaurant. A nice market and near the Camping park at the harbor there are fish shops and dive centers. Try them.

So it you want a nice holiday. Try this place.

Fantastic Villa!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was very spacious and beautifully presented. It had everything and was very comfortable. Antonio and Helena were very helpful in recommending local restaurants and beaches. The local beach was very busy and it was easier to walk down to it as parking was very hard to come by. However, the walk back although not far was quite strenuous as the villa was located on the side of a hill. We would definitely recommend the property.

On the 'Costa Azul', the Atlantic Ocean meets the coast. From time to time, huge sand dunes touch the sea. Secluded beaches cut out of the green hills. These obvious contrasts make this an ideal place for holidays. The Sesimbra village is located in the middle of the so called 'Costa Azul', set on a curving turquoise bay 40 km south of Lisbon; Sesimbra is both an attractive fishing town and popular tourist resort. Protected from north winds by the slopes of the Serra da Arrábida, it was occupied by the Romans and later the Moors. 12 km west of Sesimbra, there is a flat promontory of Cabo Espichel, a wild enchanted place with magnificent views northwards to Lisbon and the mouth of the River Tagus. Sesimbra is also located in core of the Setúbal peninsula, so that means the neighbourhood of 2 natural reserves such as beautiful Arrábida reserve or the Sado river estuary reserve (known for its colony of dolphins). For the golf fans, the proximity of 3 golf courses(Perú,Aroeira and Montado)

Golf: Golf-There are tree Golf courses that could be easily accessed in the area, which are: 1- Quinta do Perú ; Herdade da Aroeira and Herdade do Montado.
