We just returned home and already miss Fernanda & António Manuel's place. It is located in a very quiet neighborhood in close proximity to everything including Cascais historical district, shops, beautiful beaches, restaurants, and highways leading to Lisbon, marvelous Sintra area w UNESCO heritage castles/palaces not to be missed and nearby medieval towns like Tomar or Evora and many more. The apartment we stayed in is simply but comfortably furnished on two levels. On the ground floor we enjoyed full kitchen, powder room, dining and family room w patio door leading to a garden area with roofed terrace, palm and fruit trees. On the second floor there is a master bedroom with a full bath, large wardrobe, and a seating area.
Our hosts made sure that we had everything we need and more. Upon our arrival, which was rather late in the evening because we lost our way from the airport at the beginning and had to detour a bit, Maria and Antonio had waited for us w a smile and freshly baked cake. They showed us everything including how to run things in the house and connect to the wi-fi internet. Antonio was checking on us daily to make sure that we were ok and right behind him there was his pretty cat, one of many wandering around and sunbathing throughout the property.
The place is hidden from the traffic by an automated gate and a long driveway path so when you pull to the unit and open the car's door only hear birds and see green everywhere. We loved it.
Maria is an artist and inside you will enjoy hand-made wall titles in both baths which are a preamble to a fantastic azulejos you will encounter in Portugal.
Our days went by very fast as we were on a self-imposed sightseeing schedule every evening were looking forward to return to the casa for a light dinner with wine and good night of sleep in a very comfortable bed.
Maria and Antonio...thank you for your hospitality, be well and stay healthy.
the cottage in Sintra was very clean and comfortable for the three of us. we were able to walk into the village for meals in the small cafes and restaurants and it was a reasonable drive to the beaches and other attractions.
the hosts are very kind and accommodating and made our stay extra special.
