Guestbook comments from the manager

Staying at property 1009329 was a great pleasure for our family! The bungalow is lovingly furnished and has a lot of opportunities, especially for children. The kitchen is brand new and you can find everything you need in it. Although the owners live in the same house on the above floor, they never use the pool area and during the daytime they are always gone so you can relax at the pool by yourself. The owners are extremely hospitably and nice - we often got Portuguese cakes or cookies from them. Everything was clean and we did not have anything to complain about. The whole estate is generous and is totally worth visiting.

Really idyllic and empty beaches are close by and there are a lot of possibilities for sightseeing in the area (Mafra castle must be seen!). Unfortunately most Portuguese do not speak English or Spanish or any other language but Portuguese. It's absolutely recommendable and we are looking forward to spending our next summer at property 1009329 again.

Fantastic place with great and heated pool

  • 5 of 5

Pedro and his family made us feel very welcome in the ground floor of his property. It is a huge space, with table tennis, table football inside and a wonderful covered and heated pool outside (covers can be removed). There is a lovely garden and plenty of seating inside and out. The villa is very quiet but close to shops, restaurants and beaches-great surf school in Foz de Lizandro and lovely fish restaurant. Also close to Lisbon, Cascais and Sintra.

Will hopefully return soon

Peace and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

Great property - clean tidy and as described. The owner was extremely helpful

The property is no more than 30 mins from most of the sights but a car is essential as there is nothing that can be considered walking distance from the property

Only down side is that it only has 2 double beds which is not ideal with older children

Recommend Restaurante Ti Matilde at the north end of Ericeira it is a little out of town but always seems to be busy

The perfect place for holidays - a 5star rental

  • 5 of 5

We spent some absolutly fantastic days in this house - everything was perfect!!

The warm welcome of the owner, the spacious living and the heated pool....Amazing!

The property was clean and we found everything listed in the description. The owners are really great - coming with wine, homemade cakes, fresh eggs and a lot of good ideas what to do in the surroundings, We had been so fine in the house that we spent more time here than visiting and the flat was spacious enough that everybody could find a place for being alone sometimes.

The pool was heated by solar cells and cleaned with salt - and large enough to swim all the time and therefore, we didn't go often to the seaside!

The house was absolutly calme and nobody disturbed us - the ideal place to do a break when you're living in a big city

Sintra or Mafra are close with a lot of restaurants or supermarkets and other tourist attractions. A car is needed for visiting the area. And even Lisbon is not far away for a day trip.

Hope that our comments will be helpful - we loved that place and can only recommand to go there

For sure we will come back!

Relax

  • 5 of 5

A truly lovely spot. Right at the end of a dead end road, piece and quite is guaranteed. The garden is beautiful, large, with tons of flowers and nice trees. The house is huge, especially the living room. It has room enough to table tennis and to play table football. Besides, it has comfortbale couches and fauteuils to read, watch tv (if you come to it) and relax. Kitchen is roomy and has everything one needs for cooking and dining. The bedrooms are a okay, both have double beds. The swimming pool is clean and warm and it is only 3 steps from the glass sliding doors. Bathroom is at the ground floor with double shower and toilets. The location of this house is perfect: at only 40 minutes by car from Lisbon, half an hour from Cascais and 20 minutes from Sintra to the south and Ericeira to the north, it has opportunities enough to visit the surroudings. The coast is at 10 minutes by car: lovely beaches and sea. Overall, we had a truly wonderful, sunny stay here! This place has a lovely feel to it and the owner and his family is very very kind.

Un séjour idyllique...

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour extraordinaire! L'accueil était absolument chaleureux et les propriétaires situés au premier étage aux petits soins... La villa est absolument magnifique et immense, et nous avons pu profiter d'une piscine chauffée en famille... Les propriétaires se font discrets, et se rendent absolument disponibles à la moindre question. A notre arrivée, nous avons aussi pu goûter à ce fameux gâteau au chocolat, un vrai délice.... La villa se situe dans un endroit vraiment calme, aucun bruit, une vue splendide, le cadre idéal pour des vacances reposantes.

Située tout de même proche des routes menant aux plages, à Lisbonne et tout les autres villes telles que Sintra, à visiter sans modération.

On garde de fabuleux souvenirs de ce séjour merveilleux, et nous y reviendrons, c'est certain !
