A lovely house, the grounds are immaculate and the pool is fantastic. We had a great time and our host Joao was really helpful with nothing too much bother. Thoroughly recommended.

Summer sizzler in a great location.5***** for value and service !!!

5 of 5
Adult family of 3.Stayed in this wonderful villa for 10 days at the start of July. Ana's description and photo's do not do it justice.Property is surrounded by fruit trees and flowering shrubs, there is plenty of space inside and out, it can easily accommodate 6-8 people.The pool and barbecue area are the icing on the cake.Plenty of outside seating around the grounds, benches,chairs and even a hammock.No immediate neighbours, so privacy is assured.Don't go expecting everything to be plush and brand new but all that is required for a comfortable stay is present.The local village does not have any shops but there are two little cafe/bars, where we found the local residents to be incredibly warm and welcoming, the area is definitely off the usual tourist trail but is only approx. 30-40 mins. via train to Lisbon.We made a decision not to hire a car and used a recommended local taxi driver,Fernando,to get to/from Azambuja[local town approx. 5km away] when we went food shopping or for a meal out. He was reliable and inexpensive, so it worked out fine.There are a number of places of interest nearby and good Portuguese restuarants in the surrounding towns.Highlight, activity wise was the couple of hours spent horseriding in the hills. A great place to relax and unwind.We had planned to do more things, activity wise, but we were just too relaxed to bother. Ana offered a great service, she communicated with us leading up to our holiday and answered all our queries, arranged an airport pickup, had hire bikes at our disposal and just came across as a warm and genuine person.As a family, we would have no hesitation in recommending her and her property. 5*****/5*****.
