Large house in nice surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house, plenty of rooms, and nice surroundings. The host is very friendly. Close to Lisboa, Sintra and beautiful beaches. Be aware of the weather in this area, as it is close to the sea and up in the mountains, which creates a special climate. The villge is also nice.

We enjoyed our stay a lot!

Geweldig huis en verblijf!

  • 5 of 5

Geweldig huis van alle gemakken voorzien. Wij zaten er met de familie (8 pers) en kwamen niets te kort. Vanuit de woonkamer heb je ene mooiuitzicht over de bergen van Sintra. Zwembad is verwarmd en in de buurt vele leuke restaurantjes. De eigenaar is erg vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Zeker een aanrader. Wij komen in ieder geval een keer terug!

Large and spacious with everything you need including lovely views of sunsets

  • 5 of 5

This house is large enough for two families to have a lot of space. Its clean and has numerous places to eat both in and outside. The village is about 5 minutes walk from the front door of the property, with a few cafes, bar and restaurant. The beach is also 5 minutes drive from the house or a walk but as we had small children with us we didn't make the walk. The beach is stunning.

This is a great are to visit with beautiful architecture, scenery and beaches all accessible. Alongside being under an hour from Lisbon I would highly recommend it.

Great holiday for all ages

  • 4 of 5

Nine of us enjoyed this comfortable villa and its pool, table tennis and incredible views. Lilla, the owner, is great and provided more sunbeds within a few hours when we asked. Antonio made the booking easy and promptly gave us lots of pre arrival information when we asked. Almocegeme is a wonderful town with plenty of shops cafes and a great restaurant Sisuda. Nearest cafe, supermarket and restaurant are literally 1-2 min walk away. But the beach is 1.1 km (15-20min walk) minute walk but worth it as it is stunning. Good transport for both Sintra and Cascais. We had our fair share of cloud and wind but when the sun did come out' it was a perfect temperature. Due to the hillside location, there is not enough room for all of us to sit around the pool but small groups could gather on different terraces and enjoy views or to get out of the prevailing wind. We would certainly come back but don't expect long sunny days, you get those in Cascais on the other side of the mountain.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review. The summer weather in Sintra and its coastline reaches above 30 degrees while in Cascais, only 15 minutes away, can go up to 40 degrees but with small crowded beaches. The beaches near the house are natural, wide, with cliffs but also have cafes, restaurants and showers.

Very Disappointed!

  • 1 of 5

It is interesting that the last review was in 2013 and a favourable one. No one has stayed here in 3 years or do they only post favourable reviews?

From start to finish we were disappointed with this house. I won't elaborate as it will only result in a negative rant.

If you want a house in an area that is easy access to Lisbon and Sintra and to tour the area then this house fits the bill but if you want to enjoy your vacation at the house with quite time then I would keep looking.

Owner's Response: The house has been fully booked during high season for the last 8 years including the 2013-16 period. On enquiry we will send you the digitilized guestbook with dozens of reviews, all positive. I am sorry to read that the house did not not meet your expectations even though no complaint was made during your stay. In the review nothing is mentioned as to what exactly is wrong with the house. I do not think the advertisement is misleading in any way, the pictures describe well the house and all the equipment is fairly new since the house was built in 2008. Guests are received with a friendly attitude as is common here and it is not uncommon to make small favours such as driving to an open shop on arrival or calling a doctor when needed.
