Fully furnished and equipped garden apartment with Air Conditioning. 2 bedrooms (1 ensuite), open space with dining and living room, 2 WCs and a laundry. Garden and barbecue. Near to A16 and A5 HighWays that go to Lisbon and Cascais. 5 minutes to American International School in Linho. 5 minutes to Beloura Shopping and Cascais Shopping. 10 minutes to Sintra, Cascais, Estoril and Guincho. Closed condominium.
The apartment is extremely well decorated, with an attention to detail. Absolutely everything you need is provided by the owners who really care for your comfort and happiness. The surroundings are peaceful, in trees. And yet, you are very close to many places of interest, including Lisbon. Highly recommended for an excellent holiday.
Property is more or less as described. Kitchen is well equipped, comfortable beds (although beds in second bedroom are not full size), plenty of room in sitting/ dining area, good storage space. Shower rooms are adequate, with decent shower pressure. Great location in the Penha Longa resort with easy access to Cascais and Sintra as well as supermarkets and malls (Sintra forum and Cascais Shopping both within 10 min drive). Owner is very responsive and keen that you enjoy your stay. There is a small garden area outside but we didn't use it much as no outdoor seating apart from a small metal bench, and there were lots of bees and wasps attracted to the lovely shrubs).
However we were disappointed with a few things, the main one being that the apartment is showing signs of damp, particularly in the second bedroom. The wardrobe was unusable due to the damp smell. Other signs included bubbling/ damp paintwork in shower room and a few other places, plus small mould spots on the blind.
The utility room was handy but the washing machine has an exceptionally slow top spin of 600rpm which made it virtually unusable as clothes came out sodden.
We had no hot water one day and this was apparently due to lack of sun (insufficient solar power to heat water). Would have been useful to have a list of instructions in the apartment to know what to do to fix.
Overall not a bad apartment but we are unlikely to return because of the apparent damp issues.
Nous avons séjourné 1 semaine du 01/08/15 au 08/08/15 dans l'apartement Fonte 37 à Penha Longa.
L'appartement est grand, spacieux, entièrement équipé et conforme aux photos. L'emplacement est idéal pour pouvoir visiter Lisbonne et les villes alentour comme Sintra et Cascais. Bref, un séjour dans un cadre très agréable, je recommanderai.

Wow, the apartment is just as stunning as it looks. It is very spacious with huge bedrooms and bathrooms and a great open plan living space. Very well equipped and exceptionally well presented. Very secure surroundings within a gated community surrounded by a fabulous golf course. There is a communal swimming pool 100m from the apartment and Jose, the owner also offers private tennis lessons. You do need a car but shops are only five minutes drive and we would highly recommended visiting Cascais, Sintra, the Oceanarium and Science museum in Lisbon. Beaches around Lisbon are also superb. We would certainly go back again. Karen, Chris and Matthew Griffin
wir haben das Apartment für einen Kurzaufenthalt in der Nähe von Lissabon genutzt. Die Unterkunft lässt keine Wünsche offen. Der Golfplatz sowie das 5 Sterne Hotel sind vom Apartment nur 5 Minuten zu Fuß entfernt.
Die besitzerfamilie wohnt im Haus über dem Apartment und steht für Fragen jederzeit zur Verfügung ohne aufdringlich zu sein. Man hat am Apartment komplett seinen eigenen Bereich. Nur wenige Meter entfernt gibt es einen Gemeinschaftspool, der von den Gästen mitgenutzt werden kann.
Alles in Allem hatten wir einen rund um perfekten Aufenthalt und es hat uns nichts gefehlt
Wir haben eine unvergeßliche Woche in der wunderschönen Villa in Penha Longa verbracht.
Die Ausstattung der Villa war perfekt, es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt und würden jederzeit wieder kommen. Die Lage der Villa war sehr ruhig und die Umgebung war ebenfalls traumhaft. Der Pool war sehr gepflegt und auch dort konnte man in Ruhe entspannen.
Der Besitzer hat uns sehr herzlich empfangen und hat sich für uns Zeit genommen, um uns in Ruhe die ganze Villa zu zeigen und uns wertvolle Tipps gegeben. Wir haben uns dort wie zu Hause gefühlt und wollte gar nicht mehr nach Hause.
Alles in allem war es wirklich ein traumhafter Urlaub in einer der schönsten Villen, die wir je gesehen haben.
Vielen Dank an José an den unvergeßlichen Urlaub!!!
We had a great time staying two weeks at Penha Longa in this stylish apartment!
The rental and booking process was smooth, Jose responded very quickly to all our questions.
Jose was welcoming us when we arrived and showed the apartment and provided instructions and tips for our vacation. At our arrival we also found a startup pack with coffee/wine/beer/fruits/flowers/washing powders etc.
The apartment was very clean and spacious Both bedrooms were very big with nice decorative details and good quality linen.
Kitchen was really well equipped for self catering, with more than enough plates and other tableware. Also it was great to have the outdoor barbecue.
The community pool, just on the other side of the street, was quite peaceful.
The apartment is at the basement level of the house, so terrace & garden are shadowed by the surrounding trees and you don’t get as stunning views as you get from the Villa above. During hot summer days this cooling shadow of the trees is very nice. But the weather was a bit windy and not too warm during our stay, so we did not unfortunately have a chance to eat outside in the terrace very often.
The host family was most welcoming, helpful and friendly! Thank you again Ana, Jose, Joana, Vasco and Bosque the Beagle for hosting us.
The site location is really great, but a car is essential. It is a place to combine various activities, shopping, culture and sightseeing, sport activities, beaches and barbecue cooking.
The Penha Longa resort itself is nice place for Golf & Tennis, but still provides the peace and tranquility outside the cities. However, it is only few mins drive from many interesting places, like Sintra and all the parks and palaces, Cascais, and naturally Lisbon. Additionally you have big shopping malls close by, like Cascais Shopping only 5 mins drive.
Jose is also a great tennis coach! Our family took 6 lessons with him during our 2 week stay, and we felt that we made good progress with our game. Jose's coaching style is very professional. He made sure that we also enjoyed and played in relaxed way, instead of focusing only on technique.
We look forward staying and learning tennis with you again!
