Thank you, Rosario, for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have been using these Vacation Rental Homes around the world for the past 20 years…and this house is a real gem! It’s now one of our favorites. The house is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Rosario was there to greet us when we arrived, to show us around and make us feel truly welcomed. The taste of local foods was a wonderful surprise. The house provided us with some of the basic items needed for our stay…trash bags, soaps, paper goods, some non-perishable cooking supplies…that was a big help. And Rosario even took us to the local grocer so that we didn’t get lost. The hospitality she showed to us was amazing and is now a fond memory of our Family Vacation in Portugal.

My favorite spot was the Lilly Garden, in beautiful bloom, just outside the kitchen balcony. The children’s favorite were the two Splash Pools they discovered were only about 2-feet deep and perfect for some fun and splashing around.

Obrigado, Rosario, por nos permitir ficar em sua bela casa !!

Meus amigos e tenho vindo a utilizar estes Casas de aluguel em todo o mundo nos últimos 20 anos ... e esta casa é uma verdadeira jóia! É agora um dos nossos favoritos. A casa é lindamente decorados e impecavelmente limpos. Rosario estava lá para saudar-nos quando chegamos, para nos mostrar ao redor e fazer-nos sentir verdadeiramente bem-vindo. O sabor dos alimentos locais foi uma surpresa maravilhosa. A casa forneceu-nos com alguns dos itens básicos necessários para a nossa estadia ... sacos de lixo, sabonetes, produtos de papel, alguns materiais de cozinha não-perecíveis ... que foi uma grande ajuda. E Rosario mesmo nos levou para a mercearia local para que não se perder. A hospitalidade ela mostrou para nós foi incrível e é agora um apreciador de memória da nossa férias da família em Portugal.

Meu favorito era o Jardim Lilly, na bela flor, do lado de fora da varanda da cozinha. favorito das crianças eram as duas piscinas splash que descobriram eram apenas cerca de 2 pés de profundidade e perfeito para se divertir e cair.

One of the best houses we have ever visited

  • 5 of 5

We stayed around one week in this house and it was really great. A large house with several bathrooms. Everything very clean. A very large and beautiful garden. The owner was friendly and helpful. As we had some (not serious) problems, she helped immediately and solved them. The kitchen is very well equipped and the house is also best suited for families with children. Thank you!

La maison est grandiose, grande, propre, au calme. Le seul petit plus que pourrait avoir cette maison serait une piscine. L'accueil est formidable. Merci à Maria

Casa Magnífica

  • 5 of 5

Casa super espaçosa, super acolhedora 100% equipada parece que é habitada diariamente.bem melhor que as fotos aliás não há fotos que façam justiça ao esplendor da casa e do terreno envolvente que nos remetem para um bosque super intimista.A D. Maria do Rosário é super acolhedora e prestável. Uma experiência a repetir muitas e muitas vezes.
