Casa Bianca is an attractive, privately owned villa with swimming pool on the edge of the pretty village of A-Dos Francos on Portugal's unspoilt Silver Coast; about a 45 minute drive north of Lisbon, 25 minutes from vibrant Peniche and just 15 minutes from the Golden Eagle Golf Course.
The villa is set on the slope of the hill, has its own private swimming pool set in landscaped gardens, and is surrounded by olive trees and overlooking the rambling vineyards and fruit orchards adjacent to the village. The peace and tranquility of the setting make this location the perfect family getaway with plenty of room and all the privacy you will need for a truly relaxing and memorable holiday. The house has no immediate neighbours and so affords perfect security and privacy with no disturbance at all. The South-East-facing wrap around covered balcony provides the most beautiful views and is an absolute delight for early risers who wish to catch the sunrise! The terrace is bathed in sunshine till late.
Views stunning - food great, really cool place for a bunch of friends. Loved it. Highly recommended for those who want to relax and have a fun time. It is a large house and so peaceful. We took long walks each evening after supper and then enjoyed a few hours sampling fine Alentejo wines on the terrace.
Die Villa liegt ruhig außerhalb der kleinen Ortschaft A-dos-Francos und ist umfangreich und mit allem Komfort eingerichtet (wie im Internet beschrieben, so haben wir es auch vorgefunden!). Pool mit Wasserfall, Balkon/Terasse, Gartenliegen, BBQ, Billard-und Spielezimmer - alles in einwandfreiem Zustand für einen entspannten Urlaub vorhanden. Sowohl die Kinder als auch die Erwachsenen fühlten sich mehr als wohl. Und tauchte mal eine Frage oder ein Problem auf, war Ben umgehend (viaEmail) mit Rat und Abhilfe zur Stelle. Das einzige, was verbessert werden könnte ist der etwas schwache WLAN Empfang in der oberen Etage. Aber es ja auch Vorteile, nicht immer online zu sein..
We really had a wonderful stay at Casa Bianca and can absolutely recommend this lovely place to everybody.
Casa Bianca is a wonder. It is clear that Brandon has poured all his energy and effort into making this a prize destination. We six travelers (three couples) only got to enjoy four days here, and that was much too short.
The house is located on the outskirts of the village of A Dos Francos, and very well situated for day trips to the lovely town of Obidos, and even making a short bus ride in to Lisbon for the day.
The appointments in the house are superb. Windows are well screened (a luxury not often found in our travels), and the presence of two washing machines was hugely appreciated. I kept meaning to put up a sign up sheet for use of the fitness room, but protracted glasses of good wine on the terrace or watching some of the hundreds of channels on the televisions somehow continually got in the way.
Thank you Brandon for a wonderful stay. Perhaps we will get back to see you again some time.
Die Casa Bianca ist mit allem ausgestattet, was immer man wünschen kann - und darüber hinaus. Dies gilt für die überkomplette Küchenausrüstung, ein reichhaltiges Angebot von Kissen, Decken und Handtüchern ebenso wie für die elektronische Unterhaltung mit diversen Fernsehern und DVD-Geräten sowie zahlreiche Spielmöglichkeiten im Haus. Die Sauberkeit ist beispielhaft.
Die Villa liegt sehr ruhig etwa 10 km von Caldas da Rainha entfernt. Dort befinden sich mehrere Supermärkte, der tägliche Obst- und Gemüsemarkt und zaghlreiche ordentliche Restaurants.
In der Umgebung finden sich einige der interessantesten Sehenswürdigkeiten Portugals wie Óbidos, Tomar, Batalha, Alcobaca und die Tropfsteinhöhlen bei Leiria. Auch Mafra und Sintra sind nicht weit, Lissabon mit dem Auto in einer Stunde zu erreichen.
Wir haben den Hausbesitzer Brendon Williamson vor Ort kennengelernt. Von ihm stammen die besten Restaurant-Tips und er war stets für Nachfragen und Wünsche erreichbar. Dafür, lieber Brendon, auch an dieser Stelle noch einmal herzlichen Dank. Wir haben den Urlaub wirklich genossen und waren sicher nicht zum letzten Mal in Portugal.
We stayed at this beautiful villa for a week we were a party of ten including 4 small children it was spotlesly clean and and had everything we could wish for. the beach at Foz is about half an hour away and is perfect for children the parking there is free but there are no sunbeds or umberellas, so we took the folding chairs from the villa and a picnic coming back after lunch to swim in the pool. We ate out every night as we found the food very good and suprisingly cheap! Great place to go to avoid all things English and see the real Portugal
My thanks to Brendon and staff for the fantastic facilities. Family of 7 set off from the UK to get some late autumn sunshine. This was an opportunity to take my elderly parents along as well as they had never visited Portugal before - not even the Algarve!
The villa was clean and welcoming and contained just about everything you could ever want on a holiday and more. We love the games room and the great views from the large balcony. It was so lovely sitting up there and watching the work going on in the vineyards around harvest in the valley below. A dos Francos proved to be very well connected to the A15 / A 8 motorways that could either take you further inland or down to the sea side. It took us just 15 odd minutes to get to Peniche. Thanks for all the tips about places to go visit. We particularly enjoyed the short drive up to Munto Junto and Alenquer and so many other little places that you would not normally find in any of the brochures. We really hope to come back again with the children and perhaps spend a fortnight here either in June or July,if possible.
Casa Bianca is located 55 mins north of Lisbon Airport & 3 miles from the motorway A15 (Caldas da Rainha - Santarem). The house is on the edge of the village of A dos Francos & is within easy reach of major attractions, surf camps, supermarkets, Golf resorts & golden sandy beaches. There are a number of open air markets selling a range of goods including fresh produce at really amazing prices. Caldas da Rainha, Foz de Arelho and Obidos which are approximately 10 - 12 miles away by car have a selection of DIY stores, excellent restaurants with international cuisine. In the immediate vicinity of the villa, you can also find a few good restaurants who specialise in Portuguese fare but most especially in seafood dishes. There is a bank, three cafe-bars, a mini market and a few other shops just 300 metres away from the house. The nearest beaches at Foz are spectacular and have all the facilities you would expect to find at a top location by the sea.
Other Activities: The town of Bombarral, located to the southeast of A dos Francos has exciting Go Karting facilities
