A luxurious oasis

  • 5 of 5

Although, at first, I was slightly worried how remote the location of the apartment was, my concerns weree quickly dispelled. It is sited within a few minutes walk of a lovely rural village - typical of the region. I hired a car to get to and from Estoril and/or Cascais but the journey took no more than 10 minutes. 10 minutes more takes you to the beaches at Guincho which are terriffic!

The apartment is wonderful. Light, airy, masses of space - and a truly relaxing place for a holiday. The agents that look after the apartment are attentive, friendly and helpful.

Thoroughly recommended and I'll be back!

Gerard's apartment is modern, quiet, comfortable, well appointed with an excellent view.

  • 4 of 5

I highly recommend this property. It is beautifully decorated - just like in the pictures - and has all the bells and whistles of an upscale condo. We had a lovely stay. Gerard and his caretakers made our stay very easy and comfortable. The apartment is very central to Cascais, Sintra and the beaches - about 10 minutes drive - and we really enjoyed exploring the castles and museums as well as Guincho and other beaches. The apartment is 5 min drive from Cascais Shopping' supermarket which has everything, but we also enjoyed walking to the coffee shop, bakery, grocer and restaurant in the sleepy village of Manique. Loved the air conditioning and the pool at the end of a hot day. Thank you for letting us use your home. Until next time.

Lovely apartment, 5 stars!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! This is a wonderful, lovely, very well mantained apartment, in the great and safe enviroment of Villaggio Manique. The apartment is very light, perfectly clean. It is very spacious and decorated with good taste. It is very well equipped .with everything that we needed and more, like a fine Delta Q coffee machine. The apartment is in the best location inside the Villaggio Manique Complex, close to the swimming pool and tennis courts. We enjoyed so much the beautiful sunset view from the balcony in the living room. In a 5 minutes walk you are in the middle of the cute and small Manique villa with a bakery, cafe, bank, pharmacy and small tipical restaurants. In a few minutes by car we could reach the beaches, Cascaishopping, the historical Sintra... Our kids felt at home and we really enjoyed very much our stay. The owner is very friendly and dedicated to a perfect guests´ stay. The manager is very nice and make a great work taking care of everything we needed. We definitely recommend this apartment, it is 5 stars!

Spacious well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

Nice quiet location but not far from all the amenities. Very spacious apartment with everything you need for a great holiday. Great meet and greet and it was nice to have a secure garage for the hire car.

Very good apartment but poor quality pool facility.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very spacious, modern and well maintained. It was as described and included all relevant equipment.

The only disappointing feature was the swimming pool. Both the pool and surrounding areas are poorly maintained. For example, lots of tiles missing from pool and no sun loungers. This needs improving as it detracts from the experience of staying here.
