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.

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.
