About John

Being raised in this village just by the sea, it was with a big pleasure that life made us return to it, where we can relax from the day-to-day stress.

Since traveling is one of our main hobbies, we think that is now the time to share some of our homeland with you.

John purchased this house in 1888

Why John chose Assenta

This property is in the family possession by some generations. We just gave it a nice restoration, to bring it up to modern days needs.

What makes this house unique

Being a typical portuguese village house, we wanted to keep that in mind when the restorations works were carried out. We decided to maintain the core character of its stone walls and roof woodwork, who work together with a touch of modernity, resulting in a pleasant and cozy house.

The perfect holiday home

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful property with loads of character and fully equipped with everything we needed and then some. Perfectly located in a quiet town within travelling distance of Lisbon for those who prefer not to stay in the city itself. Our kids loved the nearby beaches, and thanks to Joao's recommendations, they spent many hours exploring amazing rockpools. Joao and Angela were very welcoming hosts, helpful and very friendly. We would not hesitate to recommend them and House Milvus to family and friends.

Belle maison dans agréable village à 2 pas de la mer.

  • 5 of 5

Super séjour (2 semaines en août 2017). La maison est idéale pour un couple avec 2 enfants. Joao et Angela nous ont réservé un accueil des plus chaleureux et se sont tenus toujours disponibles pour répondre à nos diverses questions. La plage est à quelques minutes à pied ( attention il y a une falaise à descendre et donc à remonter au retour mais rien de méchant, nos enfants de 4 et 7 ans ne s'en sont pas plaint). Le village est agréable avec peu voire pas d'autres touristes que nous. Commerçants forts sympathiques. Situé à une 50aine de km de Lisbonne la température y est beaucoup plus supportable.

A house to feel at home in

  • 5 of 5

We - a family of two adults and two late teens - have had an excellent vacation in Joao and Angelas house in Assenta. The house is small, but very well arranged, and absolutely all necessities are available. The house itself is old with a family history, but is restored very recently with care, pride and kindness.

Joao and Angela took very good care of us as well - found bikes for us to use and gave plenty of very good local advise on sights, beaches and restaurants. We felt very welcome in the house and in Assenta.
