Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely villa in a peaceful location and well equipped. We were a group of 7, 4 adults and 3 children. The children loved their time in the villa, especially the swimming pool. The area had plenty to offer, in terms of culture and beaches. The lady who manages the property was extremely helpful, good communication prior to arrival, she "check us in" and "checked us out". All in all a very relaxing and happy holiday for us all.

Top Villa für 2 Familien

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist bestens ausgestattet, für 2 Familien ideal. Tennis, Pool, Fussball ect. Sicher kaum zu toppen. Die Betreuung vor Ort durch Rosada sehr gut, immer erreichbar und sehr hilfsbereit. Gute Restaurantempfehlungen, überhaupt eine gute Gegend, um im besten Ambiente gut und nicht teuer essen zu gehen. Haus absolut ruhig gelegen. Abends und über Nacht kühlt es in der Ecke (Sintra) mehr ab als in der weiteren Umgebung. In dem Nationalpark hängen auch mal Wolken. Kurze Trips zu den vielen schönen Stränden bieten viel Abwechslung in einer vom Tourismus unberührten Ecke. Absolut empfehlenswert!

Wunderschönes Haus in traumhafter Lage.

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist perfekt. Wir haben hier 10 Tage mit zwei Familien verbracht und uns sofort wohl gefühlt. Die Lage ist ein Traum.

Der Kontakt mit Frau Rosado war sehr freundlich und perfekt. Sie konnte uns einige Tipps zu Ausflügen , Stränden etc geben und steht stets mit Rat und tat zur Seite. Man fühlt sich sehr gut betreut, falls es Probleme geben könnte, die es bei uns zum Glück nicht gab.

Das Haus liegt wunderschön hat einen großen traumhaften Pool und eine grandiose Aussicht auf sintra, es liegt sehr ruhig, aber man ist mit dem Auto in 15 Minuten am Meer, also perfekt.

Das Haus ist super ausgestattet , uns hat es an nicht gefehlt, wir könnten uns hier sehr gut erholen .

Für die Kinder gibt es eine tischtennisplatte, einen Fußballplatz, Tennisplatz, volleyballfeld, Kicker.... Tischbillard.. Also wirklich alles da was sich Kinder wünschen.

Wunderschönes Haus in traumhafter Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben mit zwei Familien eine tolle Zeit in diesem wunderschönen Haus verbracht. Das Haus ist ruhig gelegen und hat einen fantastischen Ausblick auf das Sintra-Gebirge. Es ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, man fühlt sich sofort wohl. Die Küche ist riesig und voll ausgestattet, so dass man auch gut für viele Personen kochen kann. Es gibt im Umkreis aber auch viele schöne Restaurants - ein einzigartiges Erlebnis war das Restaurant Azenhos do mar, das man keinesfalls verpassen sollte. Die Vermittlerin Frau Rosado hat uns gute Tipps gegeben und auch sonst in allen Fragen sehr gut betreut. Das Haus ist vor allem auch Familien mit Kindern zu empfehlen, da es von Lego/Playmobil über Tischtennis und Kicker bis hin zum eigenen Fußballplatz voll ausgestattet ist. Die Strände in der Gegend sind auch sehr schön, aber die Brandung ist sehr stark, so dass kleinere Kinder nicht gut baden können. Insgesamt kann ich das Haus sehr weiterempfehlen, es ist wirklich etwas ganz Besonderes!!

Tolle Zeit

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten wundervolle zwei Wochen in diesem schönen Ferienhaus. Wir waren zwei Familien mit vier Kindern (zwischen 11 und 15 Jahren), Langeweile kam nie auf, weil das Haus so viele Möglichkeiten bietet. Im nahegelegenden Meer haben wir auch Wellenreiten machen können. Das Haus und die Lage sind super, ebenso die hervorragende Betreuung durch Frau R. Insgesamt aus unserer Sicht äußerst empfehlenswert!
