Nice place but could do with a bit more TLC

  • 3 of 5

Very attractive property and great location . The cottage was a good size and generally very clean but could do with perhaps a little modernisation here and there. Eg the bathroom. Kitchen equipment could also be improved on and lighting could be better for reading. One or two things were a bit broken. Despite these small details , we had a great time and Alison was very helpful. The place might seem a bit crowded if all three properties were occupied by diffeent parties but for a large group of friends it would be fantastic.

Secluded, spacious holiday accommodations

  • 4 of 5

Beautifully situated accommodation - stunning views from the pool area overlooking surrounding countryside. Each accommodation has a private patio area with outdoor furniture.

Accommodations could be enhanced with some modernising, however, I would not hesitate to return but would be more comfortable with a newer, firmer mattress. Only 10 minutes from a stunning beach and huge inland delta and numerous restaurants. All in all a delightful holiday.

Cottage by the sea

  • 4 of 5

A spacious and comfortable property in a peaceful location with a lovely garden. It is ideal for exploring this area of Portugal with swimming beaches close by. There are lots of interesting villages and towns to explore and Lisbon is within easy reach.

The owner had provided very helpful notes about the area and local restaurants. It would have been helpful to have downloaded the app for the wifi before we set off.

Fantastic property and idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

This property had everything I was after. It was in an idyllic, quiet location with amazing, unspoilt views along a valley. It was close to a number of lovely towns to explore, of which obidos and nazare were highlights and fantastic coast and the lagoon. It was spotless and the owners left a welcome pack of food out for us which included a bottle of the fantastic local wine They could not have been more helpful, providing the most accurate directions from Lisbon airport which enabled us to find our way in the pitch black to the cottage. It is remote but you do not feel too in the sticks as Foz is nearby with cafes and mini markets and a large supermarket is only a 10 minute drive. I have already recommended this property to family and friends and am planning a return visit.

A spacious house in a beautiful location, maintenance and cleaning could be better

  • 2 of 5

Firstly I would like to stress that the trip instructions are essential. It's hard to find the holiday homes on just the geographic coordinates. The arrival instruction should be send to you before departure. Our arrival was not very enjoyable, the house was not cleaned well, smelled musty and was damp due to lack of proper ventillation. After notifying Alison, some issues were handled. Nevertheless we spend one day cleaning the house. We already paid for endcleaning.

For future visitors, it's good to know that also on promised facilities like a good functional WIFI, a world wide digital TV-receiver and kitchen equipment, disappointments are to be expected. Nevertheless we had a nice two weeks holiday, enjoying the surroundings of Serra do Bouro. Caldas da Rhaina is an art town with a number of free museums and good reataurants, Foz do Arelho is a popular seaside resort with a beautiful boulevard. We also spend a day visiting Lisboa and Obidos. The fishing village of Nazaré is very attractive because of the beautiful views and good reataurants. We appriciated the peace and quitness at the quinta although we realize this was possible because we were the only visitors at the time. The view from the swimming pool is magnificent. Due to bad management, I unfortunately can not give more than two stars, I will not recommend these homes to others.
