About the property

This charming house is perfect for family vacations or gathering of friends

With a typical Portuguese look, its characteristic blue shutters and in a wonderful, peaceful surrounding, this spacious retreat is only 45 mn from the beach and the coast, 54 km to Fatima by highway and a short drive to the historical city of Santarém (20 km). If you are a cosmopolite person, and you like cultural activities, shopping, dining, and lots of activity, Lisbon is just 46 km away by highway!

From the huge green lawn, to palm trees, olive or pine trees, the garden is a beautiful place to rest or sunbathe, just enjoying the calm and an exceptional view on the valley. If you like the warmth of a wooden fireplace, just enjoy this view through the large window doors of the comfortable different rooms.

Lovely family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this home from home villa. It truly felt liked staying at a friend's house, rather than a rental. We couldn't have asked for a better host in Joao. A lovely, friendly man who truly wants you to have the best experience in his country. The villa was spacious and offered privacy for each family. Incredible well stocked and very clean. The pool was lovely (albeit quite cold sometimes) and the gardens well tended.

We enjoyed many days out and would recommend Sintra, Obidos, Palmela and of course Lisbon itself.

Thank you Joao for helping to make our holiday such an enjoyable one.

Wonderful property for vacation !

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderful weeks at Casal de Stª Ana e S. João!

A comfortable house for 12 people, nice furnished. Location at Portugal village, not far from Lisbon, Fatima and other touristic attractions. Swimming pool is perfect, big and very clean. House is dedicated for families with children and we can confirm it. Beautiful garden, well maintained.

Owner is very nice and helpful.

Thanks Joao for wonderful time at your property ! We would like to go there sometime.

Une maison et un accueil inoubliables !

  • 5 of 5

Que dire de plus ?

Merci tout d'abord à Joao pour son accueil chaleureux et tous les petites attentions dont il nous a gratifiées...

Une maison extraordinaire conforme à la description... Nous étions 4 familles et chacune y a trouvé sa place !

Des prestations dignes d'un grand hôtel assurées par Deolinda, toujours rayonnante, et son équipe...

Une piscine et ses abords cernées par de magnifique palmiers offrant une réelle impression d'être au bout du monde !

A 35 minutes de Lisbonne en voiture, ce fut un régal de la visiter à plusieurs reprises... Ne pas oublier Porto, Sintra et Sesimbra !

Je ne peux que recommander cette splendide propriété définitivement familiale où on s'y sent comme chez nous... Merci vivement Joao !

On vous embrasse tous !

Tolles Haus für tolle Urlaubstage!

  • 5 of 5

Wer ein paar erholsame Tage in der Nähe von Lissabon verbringen möchte, der ist bei Joao genau richtig. Seine offenherzige Gastfreundschaft ist das I-Tüpfelchen in einem Haus in tadellosem Zustand, mit großartigem gepflegten Garten, in ruhiger Lage und mit tollem Ausblick. Gerade Familien werden sich hier wohlfühlen. Die Lage bietet sich an als Ausgangpunkt für Ausflüge ins Land (z.B. nach Óbidos, Tomar & Co.) Und zum Frühstück lassen sich frische Feigen pflücken oder Zitronen für die frische Limonade am Pool. Und wer die portugiesische Küche von ihrer leckersten Seite kennen lernen will, der sollte Deolindas Gerichte nicht verpassen. Kurz: wir wären gerne länger geblieben und werden sicherlich wiederkommen.
