Un super séjour

  • 5 of 5

Quel beau souvenir que ce séjour passé dans cette superbe maison authentique.

Beaucoup d'espace, de tranquillité, de beauté!

Les petits déjeuners au bord de la piscine avec les amis furent des moments très agréables.

Cette maison offre un bon compromis car proche de la ville sesimbra et un peu éloigné du centre pour la tranquilité.

tres bon contact avec la propriétaire tres sympathique.

Presse de pouvoir revenir!!!!!!!!

A perfect villa for a nice holiday

  • 4 of 5

The villa is very charming, so the pictures don't lie. A very nice living room, perfect for having a late driknk, chatting or playing some trivial pursuit with the family/friends.

The garden and grill place also offered fine places for enjoying the moment. The pool was bigger than expected and was really appreciated by the kids.

We also found the kitchen good equipped

About our wonderful trip to this beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

I write this review from all people who stayed with me in this wonderful place in July. I just want to say thank you for staying there. We are glad for choosing this property. It is useful place for people who want to relax in a swimming pool, eat a barbecue, which you can make on the territory of this villa. If you go there with your family it would be the best holiday you have ever had. There is a supermarket just 5 minutes walking from this villa and there is a delicious restaurant cross the road.

We all liked staying there and we enjoyed it because we have chosen THIS house!

And especially Esabel, who is an owner of this house is very very friendly and nice!

Thanks for everything!

Located in Santana, by the road, 38km south of Lisbon, just 3km away from the ancient fishing village of Sesimbra, with its 13th century castle, known for all its beautiful beaches, narrow winding streets, fine restaurants, bars and night life. It's also close to Cape Espichel and its sanctuary (15km) where you can enjoy a spectacular ocean view, or to Aldeia do Meco (12km) with its fabulous beaches, or to Lagoa de Albufeira where you can have surf lessons, or to Azeitão (12km)an old town known for its cheese, wine route and 17th-18th century mansions, or to Portinho da Arrabida (20km) on the natural reserve of the Arrabida Mountains, which is one of the most beautiful places of Portugal, or to Setubal (25km) one of the major Portuguese cities. From here you can get to anywhere in the Costa Azul (Blue Coast) cause everything is so close. Hope you have a pleasant stay!

You have a supermarket on the village at walking distance, a fishing and vegetable market, shopping and very good restaurants.
