                                                                                                      5 of 5

We were a group of 6 adults and had ample room to lose ourselves in. The games room on the top floor, with table football and a snooker/pool table, provided an excellent play area for us, with bar and fridge. The pool is well maintained, clean, big enough and deep enough for exercise and to enjoy. The garden is beautiful, again well-maintained and made the perfect surrounding. Our favourite area was the outdoor kitchen. Mauro must love his barbecue cooking as it has everything you could possibly need to cook anything from steaks to a whole chicken, leg of lamb, sardines, etc. The villa is very clean and well-equipped. Bed linen and towels were provided and the villa was cleaned mid-stay. A gated property that felt safe and secure and like home. We thought it was just too far to walk back from Cascais after a night out but taxis were plentiful and cost around €6. We walked down to Guincho beach on a few occasions which took half an hour. While we were there we visited Lisbon, Sintra and the surrounding area, Pena Palace, played golf at some wonderful golf courses and one of our party, who is a keen cyclist, went out nearly every day on his bike (that he brought with him). My husband strutted around the villa as if he owned the place ... if only he did! ; ) We loved our stay and would thoroughly recommend this home from home. Our thanks to Mauro and his wife for being there if we needed them (but we didn't).

In fact I would suggest you stay here rather than Lisbon and visit Lisbon and Sintra from here as we did and avoid the crowds and traffic. We stayed 3 weeks in this fabulous little cottage and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cottage was spotless and one of the best equipped we have stayed in. It's centrally located, near all the beaches, quiet, and has a great view from the top floor as shown in the photos. Alexandrina, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with. Totally recommend this cottage for active couples.
