Wonderful!!

Finding suitable accomodation for a group of 15 (four families, with kids ranging in age from 3 to 16) is not an easy task, so we were really happy to find Casal Santa Maria. From all accounts, it looked like a great property, but I was still a little nervous whether it would meet everyone's needs and expectations. I needn't have worried, though -- as soon as we arrived, it was clear that we had made the right decision!
The villa is even nicer than it looks in the photos, and spotlessly clean to boot. As keen self-caterers, we were very happy with the well-equipped kitchen (two dishwashers, two fridges and a professional quality oven!); the charcoal grill outside also got lots of use.
Another great feature is the excellent use of space, both indoors and out; we never felt cramped, and everyone was able to retreat from the group if desired. In addition to the lounge, there is also a comfy sitting area in the foyer, and on the upstairs landing. Outdoors, there's also lots of choice of where to spend your time, be it the pool terrace, or the front garden. The kids enjoyed playing badminton and table tennis, and of course, swimming! Really, you don't even have to leave the house to have an excellent holiday!!
We did venture into Sintra on the tram (highly recommended!), and spent several afternoons at the beach. Praia das Macas is the closest, though we preferred Praia Pequena (about a 20 minute walk south of the villa). Praia Grande is another 5 minutes along from there, and a bit more lively, with lots cafes and bars, as well as an amazing 100 meter salt water pool. The area is also great for walking -- ask Ralph for directions to Cabo da Roca; it's not to be missed! Or if you'd prefer a pleasant stroll, the pretty village of Azenhas do Mar is an easy 2 km walk north of the villa. The more intrepid of our group enjoyed some great bike trips with Ralph -- thanks again!! Bike rental was a breeze with Cycling Rentals of Sintra -- they even deliver the bikes to the villa!
All in all, we had a fantastic time -- if I could, I'd give Casal Santa Maria 6 stars instead of 5!!

Ten crazy Norwegians

  • Submitted: Jun 19, 2010

Thanks for wonderful days in your house. Ten crazy Norwegians have lived here in connection with the Motor GP race in Estoril. We had good days at the pool and enjoy us in the house at night.
We also have taken trips to Cascais and Lisboa. We rent a car to travel around, and we took the old train to Sintra. The seafood tasted well,and people are nice. We also have taken bath in the Atlantic. We are Vikings from the west coast of Norway you know.

We would definitely recommend Lisbon Coast Cottage

  • Submitted: Jun 19, 2010
  • Stayed: Aug 2009
What a fantastic house. We have enjoyed a glorious 2 week stay. All restaurants were good, particularly 1888, Nautilus and Sabores (across the road with 20% off voucher!). Delicious seafood & fish. Sintra & Lisbon are obvious choices to visit but well worth the trip. It was an added bonus to have the luxury of contacting Ralph at any time for help and advice, no matter how trivial – THANK YOU!!! We would definitely recommend Lisbon Coast Cottages

Great location with lots to do for all ages, limited nightlife for older teenagers, although they could have travelled to Cascais or Lisbon. A week was not enough really.
