Ideal rental

5 of 5
Good quality villa. Had everything we needed for a lovely holiday. Not far from Cascais. Village of Malveira da Serra close by for daily bread/ provisions. The agent Pedro was prompt to meet us on arrival and departure.

Comfortable, spacious, beautiful

5 of 5
We stayed at this property towards the last week of June and were a family of eight with a baby. The property was both beautiful and comfortable, there was plenty of space both individual and communal. I think our favourite was the sun room where it was always difficult to dislodge people from! The house is well equipped with almost everything you could need. The caretaker was very friendly, and available for anything we needed: it was possible to reach him via Whatsapp and phone. The appliances - dishwasher, stove, washing machine, oven, fridge, iron all worked perfectly throughout our stay. The dining areas are quite communal and good for large families. Hot water, electricity, etc. were all plentiful with no problems. The weather was quite cool (which we liked!), however if you like a warm pool then it won't be warm enough as the pool is not heated (as clearly written in the property description). Check in and check out was quick and easy, and the deposit refunded within a week of departure, again all hassle free. In conclusion we had a great and memorable stay - the area is lovely and the house gave us exactly what we wanted: comfortable and appealing quarters, privacy, and lots of space to enjoy time together.
