Nice and comfy house surrounded by the beautiful beaches of the district.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the stay, three generations represented and all of them where very pleased by the big house (even with 13 people) and the nice swimming pool. Because it was 5 rooms, each with an individual bathroom there was no problem getting some personal space (sometimes needed on family vacation).

The house is close to the beach, a less than 20 minute drive from Sintra which is interesting enough in itself, but also a short train ride from Lisbon.

We went to several beaches during our stay, great for both swimming and boogie boarding.

The house is equipped with a lot of toys and games, perfect for teens and children.

Marilla is a professional, kind and responsive agent, and is fluent in English (probably in more languages to).

We had a great week and recommend this house, for large groups!

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do this villa justice . It is extremely spacious and well equipped . Marilia our host was extremely helpful . We requested outdoor cushions for dining and they were there the next day. The only gripe we had was the wifi. It is very slow.

A very spacious and well appointed property

  • 5 of 5

The description of the house, if anything, does not do it justice. It is light and airy and large with every amenity that you could reasonably want including bikes, table tennis and half a basket ball court! It was spotless on arrival and the management is efficient, friendly and helpful. A car is necessary though. It's a drive to most places that a holidaymaker is likely to want to go. Would thoroughly recommend.

We just loved this house

  • 5 of 5

The house is just great : very clean, very well maintained & big enough for 2 families.

The description and pictures are totally accurate.

When we arrived, we were surprised by its actual size!!!

There is a lot of space in this house : everyone can have its own quiet place if needed : big kitchen (2 fridges, 1 freezer, 1 microwave, 2 ovens...), a nice dining area inside, another 2 outside in the garden near the pool ; a very large living room divided into 2 : sofa + cable TV & DVD / a lounge area.

2 very large bedrooms each one with dressing and bathroom.

Upstairs there are 3 large bedrooms each with bathrooms.

The town is very typical, small and nice.

The manager is very nice, warm & welcoming. She really makes you feel at home and we could talk to her whenever needed.

The pool is secure and big enough for 1 or 2 families (we were 4 adults and 5 kids); the pool man came to make sure that it was clean and ok.

There are many things to see in this area : Sintra (and all the palaces), Cascais, the Guincho beach (a little windy but still very pleasant) and of course Lisbon (about 50 mn by car)

I would definitively recommend this house :))) !!!!
