Aldeia do Meco House Rental Photos and Description

Since years Meco has the 'Blue Flag 2007' for best water Quality

The house is situated between the small village of Meco and the Atlantic about 500 m from the beach. The village lives mostly from the local tourists, there are no hotels and when the season is over, people like to visit Meco because of the good restaurants and to have a walk on the beach. The beach of Meco got famous in the 70ies as one of the first nudist beaches, today everybody does as he likes and Meco was “discovered” by the Lisbon high-society and artists. During the summer-season there is a quite busy night life in the village but as the house is not in the center of the village you want notice much. You can buy fresh vegetables from our farmer next to the house and some local women make fresh bread over the open fire. In the village you have everything you need, pharmacy, bank, little shops as well as fresh fish 6 days a week. If you do not feel like cooking, order some fine dishes from the next restaurant and enjoy it on our big terrace the only one with a fantastic view.

A place for total relaxation within nature....

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful holiday complex is situated in a small village called Meco, where one can notice the contrast between white small typical houses and nature. Within five minutes drive there is the beach with white sand and the possibilty to go for long walks. I spent a week with my children in this house and was very happy. The complex has a big garden with swimming pool, very safe and the house itself has its own garden which is very comfortable to sit with a bit of privacy or make barbecues. This particular house is situated on angle therefore no neighbours directly and facing the nature. I would say the best positioned!! Meco is 'the place' of the Alentejo, there are some good sorrounding restaurants to try out tasty dishes from the region. Well done!

Very comfy home, first time visiting Portugal

  • 5 of 5

A group of 5 adults stayed at this house, with room enough to spare between the 3 well kept and clean bedrooms. The kitchen is huge and airy which leads to the outside terrace. Plenty of amenities provided by the owner (kitchen and laundry stuff, towels, beach blankets, etc), who was also very helpful during our stay by answering any questions via email very promptly.

Very quiet neighborhood, and very friendly people in the small village. Quick walking distance to the small grocery store, which is also right beside the meat shop and fish shop.

On a Thursday night, we were fortunate to have witnessed local fisher folks hauling their catch at the beach, and negotiate a price for some fresh fish, using hands and basic words as we did not speak a word of Portuguese.

You need a car so you can visit the cities around Meco.

Nice house with all you need. 2 bathrooms (2 toilets and 2 showers) makes life easy. Spacy bedrooms. Kitchen opens to the inner patio...nice if you want to eat outside, grill etc. Nearby fields are nice to watch to be taken care of.

Pool is awesome to have those moments you dont feel like walking to the beach....which is not far away either. Beach is nice and you can still get your own space eg. its not far too crowded. The village gives good opportunity for nice food, gourmet even.

Everything went really smooth with the owners. Thank you!

And the Portuguese sun never lets you down ;+ )

I have been travelling quite a bit in Portugal and this is for sure one of the nicest parts.

Sehr schönes Ferienhaus mit Nähe zum Strand!!

  • 5 of 5

Dieses Ferienhaus in Meco (ca. 45 min südlich von Lissabon) ist nicht weit von einem der schönsten Strände Portugals entfernt. Das Haus ist komplett eingerichtet und hat drei Schlafzimmer. Man kann sich entweder selbst versorgen (die Küche ist komplett eingerichtet - sogar mit Geschirrspüler) oder man geht in dem kleinen Ort Meco, wo zahlreiche Restaurants sind ,gut essen.

Im Garten des Ferienhauses ist ein schöner Pool den man sich mit den vier anderen Reihenhäuser teilt. Zum Strand kann man entweder zu Fuß gehen oder man fährt einfach mit dem Auto zu den verschiedenen Plätzen.

Ich kann dieses Haus nur empfehlen. Es war sehr sauber und wir haben uns alle sehr wohl gefühlt. Würde sicher wieder dort hinfahren!

Entspannender und abwechslungsreicher Ort

  • 5 of 5

Wir können uns den vorangegangenen 5*-Bewertungen voll und ganz anschließen: Unsere 6-köpfige Familie bewohnte das sauber gehaltene Reihenendhaus mit dem in jeder Hinsicht großzügigen Platz sowohl im Haus als auch im Freien mit sehr gepflegter Gartenanlage. Besonders gern genutzt haben wir die Terrasse mit dem Holzkohlegrill und dem Blick auf die angrenzenden einheimischen Gärten. Als alleinige Bewohner der Anlage Ende Mai konnten wir die ungestörte Unabhängigkeit sehr genießen. Empfangen von der gastfreundlichen Vermieterin Frau Mandl fühlten wir uns persönlich eingeladen und konnten anhand ihres eigenen regionalen Reiseführers manche unvergessliche Entdeckung in der Umgebung machen. Besonders beeindruckt haben uns die Vielfalt von überwältigenden Schönheiten der Natur, der Besuch in Lissabon und das Erleben des freundlichen portugiesischen Alltagslebens im nahen Dorf. Da träumt man vom Wiederkommen im nächsten Jahr.

Perfekt zum Ausspannen und Strand geniessen

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben das Haus mit Pool für eine Woche nach einem Lissabon Aufenthalt bewohnt und die sonnigen Tage am Pool unter dem beiden mächtigen Palmen im Garten, die Grillabende, den atemberaubenden Strand und das gut ausgestattete Haus sehr genossen. Unbedingt empfehlenswert!

Meco is situated in the middle of a natural park called “Serra da Arrabita”. The coast is often wild and difficult to explore but the next sand-beach to our house (500 m) is about 5 km long. Lisbon is a very busy city with a lot of bars and restaurants and only 30 km away from our house. Once you put down your luggage you feel miles away from any civilization. Our place is ideal to combine relaxing holidays with a lot of trips to the most important places around Lisbon, like Sintra (summer residence of the former Kings of Portugal), Estoril and Cascais with the Casino. Sesimbra is around the corner and you can enjoy a nice ride through the natural park of the Serra da Arrabita. From Setubal you can use a car-ferry to the peninsula of Troja where you can play a round of golf, go swimming or go on for a trip to the deserted area of the Alentejo with the many beaches in between. You can play golf at about 10 different courses all around 15 to 50 km from our place.
