Best holiday ever

We love Portugal and rented different houses at different locations in the past, but this is the best. The cosy house is surrounded with pine trees and has all modern comfort. Not only the specified equipment is present but there is also plenty of tableware, pots and pans, towels, sheets etc.
We liked very much to walk on the beach to the lagoon, a 1.5 hour trip on sand starting in 'Fonta de Telha'. This 'Lagoa de Albufeira" can also be reached by car (25 Km), so that somebody can pick you up there.
To go to Lisbon we preferred to take the boat at "Porto Brandao", (no parking problems, not queuing the bridge) to 'Belem' where tramway 28 took us to the centre.
Next (right) to the ‘Junta de Fregesia’ in Charneca we found a small restaurant that serves simple, good Portuguese food at very reasonable prices (really cheap for us Belgians). Also take out of roasted chicken and ‘Leitao’ - sucking pig. I do not remember the restaurant’s name but the boss’ name is Carla.
We can recommend the village Charneca de Caparica and this nice house with its garden. The house is well equipped, quiet, with all daily necessities in walking distance. It is not far from a beautiful beach and nearby Lisbon. Add to this the very friendly owners that are ready to help you with whatever issue and you will understand why we booked already for next year.
