A lovely piece of rural Portugal

4 of 5
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

Lovely family holiday

5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in this home from home villa. It truly felt liked staying at a friend's house, rather than a rental. We couldn't have asked for a better host in Joao. A lovely, friendly man who truly wants you to have the best experience in his country. The villa was spacious and offered privacy for each family. Incredible well stocked and very clean. The pool was lovely (albeit quite cold sometimes) and the gardens well tended. We enjoyed many days out and would recommend Sintra, Obidos, Palmela and of course Lisbon itself. Thank you Joao for helping to make our holiday such an enjoyable one.
