Stunning beaches nearby. The property itself is comfortable and clean if a little basic but the scenery and tranquillity make up for it. If you want tranquillity you've got it, if you want restaurants and bars go to Cascais, 15 minutes by taxi 25 minutes by bus. Managers were very welcoming and helpful. easily contactable. The locals are very friendly and helpful. Public transport was excellent. 20 minutes by train to Lisbon from Cascais. A fantastic holiday location.

Good sized pool (bit cold in June) with great gardens. We had a great local chef Vera cook our evening meals which was done to a very high standard and gave us some authentic Portuguese food. Ask the owner of you need a chef. Overall with three children under 2 years old we still managed to see a lot of the local area. Great beaches nearby and plenty of towns and attractions set in the stunning national park area.

The homes are exquisitely restored and offer everything you could possibly want for a vacation stay. WE appreciated the attention to detail. the swimming pool, patios and grounds are lushious. We will be back and can suggest to couples are families. PLease stay awhile and enjoy the pace of life. It is easy to visit so many neighboring towns from here. Aloha, Sam and Donna
