This quirky Villa is surrounded by farmland in a rural part of Central Portugal.
The garden and pool are lovely with lemon, orange and Avocados gowing on the trees. Also there is a lovely outside cooking,dining and seating area close to the pool so al-fresco living should be easy in the summer.
We stayed at the villa in January so needed the electric radiator and fire especially after dark.
Ana the owner was delightful from begining to end; providing good information on how to access the villa and quickly dealing with any queries we had whilst we were there.
The position of the villa was ideal for visitors with a car but most things were a short drive away rather than within easy walking distance. Best of all a train link to Lisbon is available in the nearby town which makes a visit to the Portuguese Capital very stress free.
Rooms in the villa are light and airy with an abundance of tiles as is traditional in the area.
There is room at the dining table for up to 8 people but for winter stays be aware that the lounge area only seats 4/5 (During the summer I suspect most of the time will be spent in the lovely area aroud the pool so this should not be a problem)
All the basic ammenities are there but some (such as the fridge with its very small (for 8) freezer compartment and the chipped crockery) are becoming a little dated.
This would seem to be an excellent Villa for dog lovers as without really trying I counted a dozen dogs roaming the surrounding farms. Conversely if you do not like dogs or indeed the noise they make this might not be your number one choice for a summer holiday.
Overall a quirky villa with a lovely host. An authentic taste of rural Portugal
Rosa, thank you! You give your guests the facilities and treatment of a one bedroom 5 star hotel, but no other guests with whom to compete or disturb! Your apartment has everything one could need. Outside, the pool and its surrounding area is heavenly. The Barbecue terrace is so private, sheltered and illuminated for perfect day time and evening relaxation. There is scope for sunbathing and yet there is plenty of shade that you provide. Parking is so easy across in the church yard. You provide the washing machine and drying facilities too! And the local supermarket in Torres Vedras is an easy trip. About location, you are so well positioned for access by car to Lisbon and other memorable and famous locations. Any couple wishing to retreat to a private heaven, or to be based in such a place for launching off on day trips can only be delighted by their time with you. There are no negatives! There is village life in the country to witness as a gentle backdrop to your place; a delightful curiosity at the most. You offer the ideal experience for couples with a love of private relaxation and/or for touring in Portugal. You should always have people leaping at the chance to stay with you. Thank you so much.
