The décor is very tasteful and classic and the furniture and beds are very comfy. The huge TV with lots of channels was a plus with two teenagers in tow - it meant that whilst we were preparing a meal or getting ready for an evening out they were fully occupied. The garden and pool are well maintained. Corales was a few minutes drive away and had everything we needed by way of small restaurants and supermarkets. The coastline is fantastic with beautiful beaches and pools (10 minutes drive) - most with amazing restaurants. A car is a must - as is the 15 minute drive to Sintra. Lisbon is easily accessed,. if you park at Sintra station and take the train. Howard and Julieta, the owners, were really helpful and just a call away if we needed to ask anything - as was Amalia their caretaker.

The air-conditioning in 3 bedrooms and the living room works well. The outside has a pool big enough to swim in and plenty of space. It was clean and generally well maintained. it's close to the small resort of Praia das Macras. The village has a few bars, restaurants and shops within a few minutes walk. The beach is good for surfing and there are buses and trams to Sintra. Overall I would really recommend the place. A couple of little things could be improved upon the WiFi is limited and the DVD player was a bit hit and miss, trivial things but prompted much moaning from the children. Take your own tea towels (same as any villa or gite don't know why).

Very clean and spacious. Good views of the countryside. The only reason it didn't get 5* is the local dogs bark quite often.
