                        Fantastic house

                        5 of 5
                        All the information provided is accurated and it was very impresive when we arrived. The swimming pool is fantastic as well as the rest of the house. Very clean and with a very large list of kitchen gadgets. Fully recommended. The nearest village has several cheap restaurants (basics), and a quite good seafood restaurant. There is also a Supermarket for everything needed.

                        Great base for exploring

                        Lovely villa with a beautiful pool and outdoor space. The villa is well equipped including a Nespresso machine and good wifi :-) The pool is well maintained by a pool maintenance company. There are good restaurants within a short drive - a car is definitely recommended. Central Lisbon is about 40 minutes by train from nearby Azambuja station. The owner, Ana, and her family are really helpful. We would definitely stay here again.
