About Karin Omberg

My name is Karin Omberg, I was born in Sweden and live in Portugal since 1987. I love dogs and breed west highland white terriers. My second hobby is training and competing in triathlons. Portugal is a great country to practice sports all year around. I just have to step out the gate to take the dogs for a nice walk in the countryside, to go for a run or to go for a nice long bike ride. At the same time I am very close to Lisbon and Cascais.

Karin Omberg purchased this apartment in 2008

Perfect spot for Sintras palaces visits

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is very nice, well renovated and quite spacious.

We did great BBQ on the terrace with ocean view.

Swimming pool perfect for the kids and relax after a long visit day at Sintras.

Karin is very helpful and gave us great tips for our stay.

Don't forget to try the restaurant on the beach: a must !!

Only minus is the not 100% sound-proofed living-room. As there is a closed door separating from the other apartment sometimes there was the feeling to be with other guests, but all in all OK !

Great apartment, friendly owners!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Almocageme after traveling true the Algarve and it was already a really amazing trip to get to the villa apartment. We drove trough hairpin bends up the mountains and the nature was really beautiful. The owner of the vila apartment is Karin and she is a very nice, friendly and open person who gives you a warm welcome.

At the property there's a nice swimming pool and a big garden, but unfortunately we didn't use the pool because it was still a bit too cold. We did use the barbecue on the terrace, so we have eaten a lot of grilled fresh fish. We went to nice places nearby like Sintra, Cascais and the surfboy-beaches with the amazing waves.

The local people in the village are also very friendly and we had some nice custard tarts at the local coffeebar.

We've had a great week, thanks Karin!

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was the most fantastic villa in a wonderful area that provides something for everyone, we were a mixed group from age 9 to 75 and all had a perfect holiday.

The apartment is very comfortable and spotlessly clean, the balcony provides a perfect area to barbecue in the evening with the most spectacular views, we will all remember watching the beautiful sunsets.

The pool caters for everyone, from a great place to cool off and the kids to play, to a most relaxing setting to read on the sun loungers and enjoy the lovely gardens.

The owners could not be more helpful, giving tips on the best places to go and are on hand for anything you may need.

The gated situation makes the apartment incredibly safe.

The area has so much to do, 3 fabulous beaches within 10 minutes in the car, where we tried surfing lessons, built great sandcastles and did a lot of body boarding.

The castles of Sintra were fabulous, a drive along the road of the palaces was fascinating, a trip to Pena a must for the amazing views and interesting architecture and we would also recommend the Regaleira Estate which was a hit with both adults and children, with plenty for the children to explore, caves, underground passageways and secret doors set in stunning gardens.

We also visited Lisbon which was a wonderful city with plenty to explore and Cascais, a resort which had restaurants, a marina and segways. As a family we hired segways for the first time, at an excellent price, and had great fun going to the marina and back, a real hit with the kids.

The village of Almocageme, where the apartment is based, is a real gem, the centre being a 5 minute walk where you can sit and have a coffee and watch the world go by. The centre square is a hive of activity with a regular fish market and a local market. There is a great butchers in the village and a shop which sells everything you need. We went to Sintra to do a big supermarket shop at the beginning of the holiday and then brought everything fresh locally.

We will definitely return to this apartment as there is so much still to see and do and would thoroughly recommend it.

A great family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic apartment, tastefully decorated and with all the mod cons including a well equipped kitchen. The gardens and pool are beautiful (and gated). The owners live downstairs and are very welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed that we could walk to nearby shops and cafes and it was only a 5 minutes drive to the nearest beach (Praia Adaga) which was our favourite. This is also a great area to explore and there are many beaches nearby, historical sites and villages and local market. We had a great week and would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for comfortable, quiet accomodation in beautiful surroundings and a good location.

A Lovely Comfortable Apartment in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from two weeks in the Colares area of Portugal and were delighted with this apartment. The location is fantastic - close to all the major beaches (less than 5 minutes). There are three beaches - Praia Macas (nice for families with good restaurants), Praia Grande - good for families, body boarders and surfers. There is also a beach called Praia d'Adraga at the bottom of the village where the apartment is situated. This is the most beautiful beach with caves - but is very dangerous for swimming. If you have a car - Guincho Beach can be found about 20 minutes drive through the National Park - with spectacular scenery. For shopping - either for gifts or food to stock up on - the best place is Cascais, although there is a supermarket in Sintra. Sintra is a great place for culture with a hilltop palace and moorish castle (not for the fainthearted and those wary of heights!). Go early in the day to avoid crowds and the heat as it is very hilly.

The apartment is spotlessly clean, comfortable and contains everything you need for a self catering holiday. The views from all sides are wonderful, especially the amazing sunsets from the balcony. The grounds surrounding the apartment comprise beautiful lush gardens, filled with flowers leading to a private swimming pool at the rear of the property. You feel very secure as the property is completely contained and protected via an electric gate. Also worth a visit is Lisbon - you can get the train from Sintra - it takes about 30 minutes - far easier than driving. Great tram tours operate from the main square which is about a 5 minute walk from the station.

We would certainly recommend this apartment for both families or friends and would love to return next year.
