August 2008

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at “Uma Casa com vista para o mar” for 2 weeks in August and were absolutely delighted. We were a party of 5 adults with 2 teenage boys and this spacious villa had plenty of room to accommodate us all easily.

Antonio and Helena, who had been a great help with the booking process, greeted us on our arrival and showed us around the villa. They made sure that we were comfortable and answered any questions we had. They obviously have great pride in their house.

This four-storey villa with a large corkscrew staircase is spacious, well equipped, and has great natural light levels. The bedrooms and communal rooms are tastefully furnished, decorated and comfortably appointed with a lot of storage space. The bathrooms too are luxurious.

The view from anywhere at the front of the house, but especially from the upper dining room, is truly astonishing. While eating in here every evening we watched the coming and going of the many boats in the bay of Sesimbra, and as one of our party is a keen amateur astronomer it was ideal for star, and moon, gazing.

The secluded pool area is situated in the top garden. A gazebo provides plenty of shade on hot days and we found it lovely to sit and eat lunch here.

From our experience, Sesimbra is ideally situated for days out. Lisbon is only half an hour’s drive and the great Palaces of Sintra about 45 minutes. There are many stunningly beautiful well-managed sandy beaches within a short driving distance. Whilst Sesimbra with its narrow streets is quaint, with a strong fishing heritage, we found the beach here too busy and commercialised for our tastes particularly during the weekend periods.

We had a wonderful holiday and would highly recommend this lovely villa as a holiday home. Also a big thank you to Antonio and Helena for making it such a pleasurable and relaxing place to stay.

Owner's Response: At 4 years ago we were looking for a small farm in country side of the Arrábida Natural Park which is in the neighborhood of Sesimbra. But some day a misunderstand of a real estate agency took us to Sesimbra and to this house which immediately had captivate our emotions and makes to induce a 180 degrees turn in our projects and dreams. Persisting what has became our new goal and since then, all our efforts were directed in a overall improvement of original house since the roof until the entire water pipe tubes including of course the interiors and all external areas such as the swimming pool and both garden areas. We though to recreate a beach house interiors, light but with a design approach in comfortable ambiences and we decide to offer this house to our guests as it was for ourselves. What we mean is that in spite we had decided to rent the house, nothing in terms of decoration, equipment and furniture has suffered a minimum change and stays just like we use it for ourselves. We simply like to offer a house that we would like to found if we were visitors looking for a holiday house. And that is why we fill of course, highly rewarded specially when we hear or simply see and felt our guests pleasure for the house accommodations the decoration the interior architecture or the beautiful sea view. We also fill that we have been rewarded by outstanding behavior of our guests which has been extremely careful and responsible in the house. The owners Helena and Antonio

A stunning house overlooking Sesimbra.

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped 4 storey house at the top of Sesimbra with a multitude of places to relax, eat and play as the day unfolded. The description was accurate, all bathrooms very well appointed, plentiful crockery and cooking utensils in the two dining areas. The top terrace with barbecue and excellent dining patio was a favourite. Minor warnings - the walk back from sesimbra is not for the unfit;15 mins uphill, but there is a bus and taxi is less than 5 Euros. Secondly; do not walk down from the pool with wet bare feet..it is slippy on the tiles. Sesimbra is full of great restaurants, particularly the Ribamar (posher), Lobo do mar (freshest fish), O Rodinhas (great seafood platter). All in all an excellent holiday base for a choice of Lisbon culture, beautiful beaches and great food.

Spacious, fantastic views especially from the pool area!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Antonio for our recent stay in your fabulous house! The property is spacious, offering plenty of room for our 3 children and father. It was very clean and in perfect condition. The views across Sesimbra and the sea are truly stunning from dawn to dusk! The swimming pool was great - it kept the kids entertained for hours.

The property is an ideal base for the local beach and attractions in the surrounding area. It's a relatively short walk into town and the beach...but a tough walk back up the steep hill! The nearest decent sized supermarket is about 15mins in the car.

When there was a problem with one of the drains, it was fixed immediately. We loved eating in the top floor with the views, but this was hard work at times with the main kitchen 2 floors below.

For young kids using the pool, beware of the unguarded wall at one end.

We had to pay extra to transfer money for the deposit (from the UK), but I think there is now a homeaway option to avoid these costs.

In summary, fantastic!!

To live in the town of Sesimbra in this villa was amazing. Never having been to the region we had no idea of what to expect. The home owners met us and spent a great deal of time showing us all the nuances of the house. She even took us to town showing us all the points of interest, the bank atm, restaurants, hospital; they were very helpful. They also connected us to an amazing chef which we hired for 2 of our dinners while there. This added tremendously to our total Portugal experience.

The location was perfect. The views from any level of the house (5 levels) were like none I have ever been priveleged to wake up to every morning. There were 8 of us and the house was large enough to enjoy anywhere as a group or get away in a quiet spot as well.

The location with living areas on the main floor as well as the upper floor were spectacular.

All the steps were perfect for keeping us in shape for all of the wonderful food and wine of the region.

It was the best spot for our trip of a lifetime.

wonderful house - perfect view - great facilities

  • 5 of 5

After a very warm welcome from the owner (who was always very helpful when needed some information) we spent a great time at Sesimbra house. The house is very well equipped and tastfully decorated. Fantastic 180° seaview from the upper floor, big patio with fireplace/grill and great pool area with garden. Restaurants in the area are simply furnished but great food (especially fish and seafood). Wonderful and large beaches. Lisbon is only 40' away by car. Nights get quite cool in September but wonderful during the day. We can honestly reccomend la "casa com vista para o mar" :-)

Something different

  • 5 of 5

After 2 years in the Algarve, we this year decided for another part of Portugal. When searching for a house we first looked for the more known areas (Estoril, Sintra) north of Lisbon. By accident we were drawn to the advertisement of the Villa of Antonio and Helena Ramalho in Sesimbra.

During the booking process our questions about the location and the house were answered honestly (yes it is a steep climb from the beach to the house, but is manageable even for 9 year olds)and quick. Also communication about payments was followed up without delay.

Upon arrival we were welcomed in a very friendly way. We got an extensive tour around the house and everything was explained in detail. The house is large, beautiful and comfortable. Decoration is very tasteful and of a high standard. the view of the house over the town and bay of Sesimbra is magnificent. We spent many days on the top floor around the pool, reading, swimming, eating, drinking en enjoying the view. Our young children also enjoyed themselves in the pool, but for them the best feature of the house was Wi-Fi access, so they could use their computers

The area of Sesimbra and Setubal is totally different from the Algarve. Nature is more beautiful, food is better, prices are lower and is less crowded, except from the weekends when a lot of people from Lisbon flood the beaches. Don't expect everyone in the area to speak English, get used to use your hands and feet to make clear what you would like.

As there is no "what to do/where to go" brochure in the house, searching the internet, studying the maps and talking to people on the beach (very friendly and helpful), learned us where to go and how to get there the best way. If you visit Lisbon, drive to Seixal, park your car and use the Ferry and public transport. Don't forget to visit the World Expo site and the Oceanarium. Also the Arrabida national Park and its beaches are beautiful. First drive to Setubal and come back through the park as the roads are one-way during the day. The advertisement states that a car is recommended but we would like to state that a car is necessary for both shopping and exploit the area.

During our stay it was very easy to get hold of Antonio when we had any questions. As we had holiday we booked a cleaner. She did a wonderful job and so did the translator on our I-pad (she only spoke Portuguese).

We can fully recommend the house and its owners. We will definitely return in the future

On the 'Costa Azul', the Atlantic Ocean meets the coast. From time to time, huge sand dunes touch the sea. Secluded beaches cut out of the green hills. These obvious contrasts make this an ideal place for holidays. The Sesimbra village is located in the middle of the so called 'Costa Azul', set on a curving turquoise bay 40 km south of Lisbon; Sesimbra is both an attractive fishing town and popular tourist resort. Protected from north winds by the slopes of the Serra da Arrábida, it was occupied by the Romans and later the Moors. 12 km west of Sesimbra, there is a flat promontory of Cabo Espichel, a wild enchanted place with magnificent views northwards to Lisbon and the mouth of the River Tagus. Sesimbra is also located in core of the Setúbal peninsula, so that means the neighbourhood of 2 natural reserves such as beautiful Arrábida reserve or the Sado river estuary reserve (known for its colony of dolphins). For the golf fans, the proximity of 3 golf courses(Perú,Aroeira and Montado)

Golf: Golf-There are tree Golf courses that could be easily accessed in the area, which are: 1- Quinta do Perú ; Herdade da Aroeira and Herdade do Montado.
