This really is a special place. The house is full of wonderful and interesting pieces of furniture, fittings, art and accessories which give it a very individual, exclusive and quirky feel. The rooms are spacious and the beds very comfortable.
It is always the outside space that’s most important to us and this house has a lovely terrace for eating, next to an upstairs kitchen (a real plus as it’s 2 floors down to the main kitchen!). On the next level up is a lovely salt water pool, with more seating and lounging areas.
It was lovely to meet Antonio and Helena, who could not have been more helpful in introducing us to the house and the area. It’s a great base for exploring the local town of Sesimbra and further afield - Lisbon is less than an hour’s drive and well worth a visit.
We had a lovely week!
We stayed in this wonderful house for two weeks with our 12 and 9 year old boys. It was a super base from which to visit a great range of different beaches within half an hour's drive - from the town beaches of Sesimbra itself, a long but worthwhile walk down the hill, through beautiful south facing and protected beaches at the foot of the Serra de Arrabida which were great for swimming, stand up paddle boarding and snorkelling, to the wide expanse of west-facing Meco Beach, ideal for playing with the waves and sunbathing. It was also a great base for daytrips to do walks in Serra de Arrabida and to visit the attractions of Lisbon and Sintra.
We loved coming back to the cool and inviting house in the midday heat, where we could eat out on the large terrace and enjoy the views over Sesimbra and the sea. It is very well equipped and comfortable, and in a quiet location, though only a walk away from the restaurants and shops of Sesimbra.
Verena and Andre couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful hosts. They provided a great range of excellent recommendations on what to do and where to go in the area, and were very thoughtful and mindful of what might interest us. It was a memorable stay!
