Beautiful cottage with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place to stay, I am already planning my next visit! It was exactly as described and more than I hoped it would be. The cottage was so lovely, well equipped and clean with a furnished patio, barbecue and an amazing pool. We spent our days visiting local attractions, various places and numerous local beaches as the cottage is ideally placed in such a beautiful and magical part of Portugal. We had good weather and the garden has full sun from midday until late when the sun sets - It was so nice to sit on the patio or by the pool and see the sun disappear in to the ocean with such amazing views of Cabo da Roca.

The owners are very friendly, thoughtful and welcoming - Thank you Nick for being so helpful with suggestions and directions on where to visit and the best places to eat out.

The cottage is truly a gem of a place and has everything you need both inside and out for a fantastic holiday. The only negative is that a week wasn't long enough!

Thank you Nick and Sveta, hope to see you again soon.... Jane and Allan xx

Lovely Spot for our Family to Relax

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this property. The sunsets, and stargazing was spectacular when there wasn't any clouds. The place had everything that one needs. There was even an excellent book on the hiking trails around the Sintra area (including the geology!). The place is close to beautiful beaches, great hiking, and day trips to Sintra, Obidos, and Lisbon. The owners provided excellent suggestions for us with regards to restaurants, places to see, and wine. It is obvious they love living in this spot. In the yard there was a nice spot for our daughter who loves to fool around outside where no one can see her to play with lime trees, apple trees, cork trees, and others I do not know the name of. The next time we come to Portugal this will be the first place we try to stay.

A pleasant stay in a lovely cottage.

  • 5 of 5

A comfortable house, good beds and shower! Ideal for visiting the Sintra area, all high lights of the area are in the neighborhood and reachable by car. During our stay the weather was good and we had breakfast and barbecue on the terrace with view on the sea. Nick and Sveta are very kind and had some good tips for restaurants. Thank you for our pleasant stay in your lovely cottage!

Perfect home for beach and Sintra

  • 5 of 5

Great location - elegant interiour and wll located for visiting both, beaches for surfing and Sintra for sighseeing.

Of course - you need a car!

The cottage is seperated from the main house and has its own terrace with BBQ. Very workable for families. Located on very quiet street, no noise whatsoever. Helpful, nice and interesting owners, easily available for questions or a chat. Of course - you need a car.

Would definately recommend this property to others.

A lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

Nick and Sveta are very welcoming hosts for guests at this lovely cottage on the coast. The setting and views are idyllic looking down to the ocean. Very easy to get to from Lisbon with a car and yet a world away in the mountains and forest. There were lots of places to go and visit in the locality. The cottage had everything we needed, was well presented and cosy. It was very comfortable for us. We really enjoyed being able to sit on the terrace too. We had a smashing time and would definitely go again.

Very beautiful house, weather less beautiful

  • 3 of 5

The house is brandnew and very beautiful. Small, but nice bathroom. Cooking-facilities limited as there are only 2 pits. No dish-washer. Washingmachine (=handy). 40' drive to Lisbon.

Owners are very friendly and helpful.

Very safe, automatic fence.

Disavantage : very close to Cabo da Roca, very chilly and extremely windy, impossible for us to have breakfast outside or to do a BBQ, what a pitty : therefore mixted feelings about this property.
