SIMPLY PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Views stunning - food great, really cool place for a bunch of friends. Loved it. Highly recommended for those who want to relax and have a fun time. It is a large house and so peaceful. We took long walks each evening after supper and then enjoyed a few hours sampling fine Alentejo wines on the terrace.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jai and friends for your kind words. It makes our effort so worthwhile and keeps us on the path of continuous improvement. I do have to say that most guests love the balcony / sun terrace more than any other part of the property because the views are truly quite spectacular. It would be a pleasure to welcome you to Casa Bianca again in the future.

WHAT A PLEASURE

  • 5 of 5
Casa Bianca is a wonder. It is clear that Brandon has poured all his energy and effort into making this a prize destination. We six travelers (three couples) only got to enjoy four days here, and that was much too short.
The house is located on the outskirts of the village of A Dos Francos, and very well situated for day trips to the lovely town of Obidos, and even making a short bus ride in to Lisbon for the day.
The appointments in the house are superb. Windows are well screened (a luxury not often found in our travels), and the presence of two washing machines was hugely appreciated. I kept meaning to put up a sign up sheet for use of the fitness room, but protracted glasses of good wine on the terrace or watching some of the hundreds of channels on the televisions somehow continually got in the way.
Thank you Brandon for a wonderful stay. Perhaps we will get back to see you again some time.

EIN PERFEKTER URLAUB

  • 5 of 5
Die Casa Bianca ist mit allem ausgestattet, was immer man wünschen kann - und darüber hinaus. Dies gilt für die überkomplette Küchenausrüstung, ein reichhaltiges Angebot von Kissen, Decken und Handtüchern ebenso wie für die elektronische Unterhaltung mit diversen Fernsehern und DVD-Geräten sowie zahlreiche Spielmöglichkeiten im Haus. Die Sauberkeit ist beispielhaft.
Die Villa liegt sehr ruhig etwa 10 km von Caldas da Rainha entfernt. Dort befinden sich mehrere Supermärkte, der tägliche Obst- und Gemüsemarkt und zaghlreiche ordentliche Restaurants.
In der Umgebung finden sich einige der interessantesten Sehenswürdigkeiten Portugals wie Óbidos, Tomar, Batalha, Alcobaca und die Tropfsteinhöhlen bei Leiria. Auch Mafra und Sintra sind nicht weit, Lissabon mit dem Auto in einer Stunde zu erreichen.
Wir haben den Hausbesitzer Brendon Williamson vor Ort kennengelernt. Von ihm stammen die besten Restaurant-Tips und er war stets für Nachfragen und Wünsche erreichbar. Dafür, lieber Brendon, auch an dieser Stelle noch einmal herzlichen Dank. Wir haben den Urlaub wirklich genossen und waren sicher nicht zum letzten Mal in Portugal.

PARADISE AT CASA BIANCA

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this beautiful villa for a week we were a party of ten including 4 small children it was spotlesly clean and and had everything we could wish for. the beach at Foz is about half an hour away and is perfect for children the parking there is free but there are no sunbeds or umberellas, so we took the folding chairs from the villa and a picnic coming back after lunch to swim in the pool. We ate out every night as we found the food very good and suprisingly cheap! Great place to go to avoid all things English and see the real Portugal

LUXURY VILLA SILVER COAST

  • 5 of 5
My thanks to Brendon and staff for the fantastic facilities. Family of 7 set off from the UK to get some late autumn sunshine. This was an opportunity to take my elderly parents along as well as they had never visited Portugal before - not even the Algarve!
The villa was clean and welcoming and contained just about everything you could ever want on a holiday and more. We love the games room and the great views from the large balcony. It was so lovely sitting up there and watching the work going on in the vineyards around harvest in the valley below. A dos Francos proved to be very well connected to the A15 / A 8 motorways that could either take you further inland or down to the sea side. It took us just 15 odd minutes to get to Peniche. Thanks for all the tips about places to go visit. We particularly enjoyed the short drive up to Munto Junto and Alenquer and so many other little places that you would not normally find in any of the brochures. We really hope to come back again with the children and perhaps spend a fortnight here either in June or July,if possible.

Owner's Response: Cheers Nanna. Hope you will make it here again. A 2 week stint would be much better during the spring or summer. We look forward to hearing from you. I will let Fatima and the staff know that their efforts were appreciated by you.

RELAXING IN THE SUN

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at Casa Bianca for 2 weeks in October 2011 and had a super relaxed time there with lots of sunbathing by the pool, reading and leisurely walks in the afternoons through some truly beautiful countryside. We were a group of 5 in need of some peace and quiet and that is what we had at this large and elegant property just 15 minutes from the beaches, but far from the noise and traffic in the resorts.
The rooms were big by UK standards with a touch of real luxury and comfort. The house contained everything you could expect on holiday and much more. Imagine having two separate kitchens, two lounges, a games room and a gym as well. I especially appreciate the garden retreat to the rear end of the property snuggly located behind a huge hedge and bordered by an olive grove on the other. Perfect for good read or some quiet contemplation. Before you start thinking you are in the middle of nowhere, let me just say, that the little village of A dos Francos is a mere 300 metres from the front gates and that is where we did practically all our shopping during our stay. The Portuguese bread is excellent and we used to get our daily supplies delivered from the lady that owns the local minimarket just 300 metres away. In the village you will also find a bank, cash machine, post office, 3 cafes, 2 mini markets and a pharmacy.
The villa is perfect for larger groups and most especially suitable for families with children. Big games room with pool table, video games, TV, DVDs and lots for the kids to do. Would love to re-visit someday.

Thanks Brendon for everything.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased that the weather held out for you and you managed to get some time to relax. I hope you are still planning you visit us again with other friends sometime next year. We should have a set of golf clubs at the house by then that you could use.
Bye for now and thanks. Brendon
