Overview

Mafra area Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Stunning sea view, 1 suite + 2 double bedrooms beautifully decorated rooms

With a PRIVILEGED and great LOCATION in a tranquility area, only at a 5 minutes walking distance from the center of Ericeira, Design Apartments embrace the picturesque village of Ericeira with the sea as the horizon.

Nestled on a hill and designed with modern and beautiful architectural lines, this luxury complex of just 3 apartments, each one with 165 square meters, one per floor and no adjoining buildings (aggregate), allow us to enjoy ample outdoor and indoor spaces. Two apartments were designed and decorated for holiday accommodation (see also the advert Vrbo listing 1105988ha, homeaway.co.uk and fewo-direkt Objekt-Nr. 595474d, if the capacity is greater than 8) and one is the Design Apartments Office and residence. Enjoy all the home comforts in these cozy apartments, without the commercialized atmosphere.

The apartments are fully air-conditioned and they were decorated to offer a creative, original and comfortable accommodation. Regardless which apartment you choose, you can always have a glimpse at the sea, from both of them. This First floor apartment is the top floor for rental holiday apartment, so you can take full advantage of its panoramic view.

In its INTERIOR, the finishes of 1st quality, the marble lioz floors, the coating of toilets in Italian ceramic or wood carpentry crafted lacquered white, are enchant.

BEDROOMS and BATHROOMS: This apartment has 3 spacious double bedrooms and 2 fully equipped bathrooms. One of the bedrooms in each apartment, is a suite with a magical view seaward, allowing you to hear the crashing of the waves from the furnished balcony. From the other two bedrooms you can have a glimpse at the building gardens and surroundings and one of them has its own balcony with sea view. The decoration of each bedroom provides a different, relaxing and luxury environment.

LIVING ROOM: Light-filled living room/dining room with 45 square meters, all surrounded by large glazed windows from where you can see the Atlantic Ocean (at a visual distance of 150 m) and the heart of Ericeira village. Take in the stunning panoramic sea view and contemplate Ericeira or the sunset from the sofa or from the balcony. Perfect room to enjoy a cards game (available on the apartments), to get warm in the fireplace (wood provided from November to March, without any extra charge), relax in the chaise-lounge, have a meal (dining seating for 6) or just watch TV (40'' flat screen TV with Astra Satellite Channels).

KITCHEN: Large, modern and fully equipped kitchen with 4 seating chairs and with one sunny balcony. It includes the following items: fridge with freezer, electric oven with 4 ring vitroceramic cooktop stove, extractor hood, dishwasher, microwave, Dolce Gusto coffee machine (machine with capsules, different types of capsules available in the welcome package), electric kettle, crockery and cutlery, pots and pans, toaster, juicer, food processor and some spices are provided.

SWIMMING POOL and BARBECUE AREA: In the outside, through the garden, we reach a secluded area where we find the pool and the barbecue area. Enjoy a meal in the built barbecue, supported by a mini fridge with freezer and a table with 8 seating chairs. Or just take a dip in the swimming pool (9m x 4,5m; minimum deep 0,90 m and maximum deep 2,20m), have fun with the pool games or listen music by using the iPhone/iPod speaker dock (AUX-in cable included for non-Apple players) for communal use. There are 12 poolside sun loungers and 1 parasol. The pool area is shared by just 2 holiday apartments so crowding is not an issue.

Everything has been thought to surprise and satisfy, to make your stay a pleasant holiday because your satisfaction is our satisfaction.

Perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

I think reviews are so important as when you book an apartment like this you are really dependent on other travellers opinions along with owners description. We had a truly wonderful holiday and this was largely due to the sheer delight of staying in this apartment. It was immaculately clean, spacious, modern and we loved the panoramic view. We would usually tour all local tourist spots on holiday but this time we just relaxed round the appartment and pool. We were just so comfortable and had all the modern conveniences we needed that we didn't feel the need to spend busy days sightseeing. Catarina is a delightful person, so very helpful and kind. Her contact for shuttle service to airport and local excursions is excellent and very reasonable. Her restaurant recommendations were first class and we agree with other reviews to book if you wish to eat early and avoid long queues. Mobile internet worked great and we actually hired some DVDs using Catarinas account - watched a couple of movies we hadn't seen in years. We shopped at Aldi, walked up and got taxi back. Perhaps it would be a good idea to get grocery delivery for arrival as there isn't a corner shop and it's hard to get your bearings on day of arrival. We are a family of 5 with 3 older teenagers - we had a great family holiday and spent quality time together - I would be happy to highly recommend to other families who are looking forward to time away from busy home and work life. One final point is the location is beautiful and although it was very hot there was always a lovely breeze from the ocean which was really pleasant.

One Of The Greatest Vacation Weeks We've Had

  • 5 of 5

We booked the property over the internet and with a few confirming emails back & forth with Catarina all was arranged. We had been in Italy the week prior at a lovely place in the country so we had high expectations coming in. All I can say is those expectations were exceeded ! We arrived at 6PM and Catarina was there to meet us with her father. We had flown into Lisbon and driven from there. It was an easy 40 minute drive and no GPS was required. Everything is as you see in the pictures. It is a modern unit ( we were on the 2nd floor ) and it had every North American convenience you can ask for. I came to surf and I was not disappointed. The swell was large all week and the crowds were small and organized. No attitude in the line up. Best surf store I found was 58 Surf. ( Big Bruno is the guy.) The town itself is busy but it has a charm to it that makes it feel small. Lots of great restaurants & pubs depending on your likes & budget. Great local sight seeing at places like Sintra & Malfra. We will be back and we would stay in same place again in a heart beat.

Great apartment, loved our holiday there.

  • 5 of 5

It is a great rarity to find a property that lives up to the website description, well in this case it is better than the description / pictures!?

The apartment is spacious, very well equipped and beautifully decorated. From the moment we decided upon the apartment, Catarina (the owner's daughter) helped us through the process, as well as making us very welcome during our stay.

Small Negatives: Ericeira can seem a little built up and busy. The main road can be busy and hard to cross (at times). Finding a restaurant table after 9pm can be a struggle. But we grew to like it. You might have to park on the road at the apartment, but you can parked.

Positives: Beautiful apartment, well equipped, with great views. Well equipped, clean and very well maintained. Great pool (shared with one other apartment), clean, with some nice sun traps. Mobile internet a great help.

My family and I loved it here and would happily go back.

EXCELLENT STAY

  • 5 of 5

We invited two couples from the States to visit Portugal with us. They had never been to the country and I, having spent many vacations in Ericeira when I was young, decided to start our "tour" there. We picked Catarina's place and I must say I could not have done better to get our friends in a "wow mood" the minute we arrived. The place is impeccable and beautiful! My major problem was to get everybody out of the house as they just wanted to enjoy the view. Great vacation. Thanks Catarina for all your support.
