Villa Maria is a beautiful home situated on the hillside overlooking Sintra. It has all of the modern conveniences with the beautiful Portuguese style. Lots of room. Many trails to the different castles. Easy walk into town. The owner was very helpful. And the place is cleaned every weekday. Great views from the patio. It’s about a 25 minute drive into Lisbon or the train which takes about 40 minutes. You can also try to the ocean in about 25 minutes. The only slight negative is that there is a rescue dog center about 100 yards from the home. And during different parts the day there is nonstop barking. With the windows closed you’ll hear none of it. The owner also said that this organization is moving the center to a different location soon. Even with that if we came back to Portugal I would not think twice about staying here. It was a great vacation for us in my family.
The Ericeira Surfhouse was the perfect home for our week-long stay in Ericeira. The open floor plan was great for us to cook and hang out in when we weren't at the beach or in town. We loved doing yoga on the front deck looking out at the ocean and grilling whole fish on the outdoor barbecue. We were greeted warmly by Sophia, who was helpful throughout our stay with great local spots to eat, shop and surf. The home is exactly what we wanted in a surf-house and we would absolutely recommend it.
