We were greeted by smoked chorizo with traditional Portuguese almond pie baked by Sandra's Mum no less, which was a welcome feast after an early start. The house has everything you could need from things like foil, spices, olive oil and basics, to an espresso machine and TWO dishwashers so you don't have to carry plates up and down the stairs. We are most meals outside in the lovely outdoor kitchenette area overlooking the garden and pool. We were two couples with four children and there were toy cars, a playhouse, slide and pool which kept the children happy for hours. (We left buckets and spades behind for future guests too!) The neighbourhood is safe and we didn't feel overlooked despite being amongst other properties. The wee shop in Colares O.Polmarinho, beyond the supermarket is amazing with a wide selection of high quality food and wine. The surrounding area is beautiful obviously and a day out in Lisbon is a must too, although don't try and see the whole city in a day, it's massive! Andraga Beach, Quinta de Regeliera, Pena Palace, surfing at Praia Grande, the Oceanarium, Time Out Food Market in Lisbon and horse and carriage rides in Sintra were some of our highlights. Pool time every afternoon was equally lovely too. We had amazing weather around 23-24 the whole week which is unusual apparently but we weren't complaining! Honestly couldn't recommend this place highly enough. Thanks again 😊�

We were there from in early April 2017 and enjoyed a week of unbroken sunshine and temperatures in the early 20s. The evenings were cool so we used the wood burning stove on a couple of occasions which was straightforward and quickly warmed the large living room. The house is a short drive from the beautiful Praia d'Adraga beach which has a lovely restaurant, also nearby is Praia Grande which is great for swimming and body boarding. We had a hire car but used the excellent public transport from Almocageme for days out in Sintra and Lisbon. Cascais was 30 mins drive away - a lovely elegant seaside resort. The kitchen was very well equipped and there were several restaurants & cafes in the village, as well as a couple of small supermarkets and a butcher. It was a relaxing and memorable week. When arriving at Almocageme I would advise parking the car on Rua da Praia Grande and walking the last few metres to the house as the final approach is very narrow, however the benefit of this is there is no traffic noise in the garden, just the sound of the wind in the bamboo wafting the scent of jasmine round the garden, and the occasional croak from a very large frog. It was delightful to look out of the windows of the main bedroom, across the wisteria blossoming on the trellis, then over the wooded hillside to the ocean. The sunsets were magnificent.
