We walked in and all went WOW at the interior as it's just great with modern furniture and plenty of space and a fab pool. Atalaia is a very quiet village with a lovely view of the ocean and the road of these few villas was so quiet as well. We hired a car for our 12 day holiday and found this to be a great location for getting north and south with ease. We went up as far as Tomar, Nazare, Batalha and Alcobacca and down as far as Lisbon which we spent a fun day at. We found so many things to go and visit with many Templar Knight castles, monestries and quaint villages within an hours drive or less. We found 2 great restaurants in lourinha to eat at which were either side of an organic food shop and both well worth a visit for value and good food. If you venture down to Ericeira then I highly recommend Ti Matilde fish restaurant which had a beautiful view out to sea and obviously extremely popular with locals and holiday makers willing to queue to get a seat. We've fallen in love with Portugal after staying here and will definitely be back and I'd love to stay at this villa again as it felt like a home from home. Alexandra who looked after us during our stay was also fantastic and quickly came to rescue us on a sunday after we locked ourselves out by mistake :)

We visited Obidos,Sintra and Cascais, all within an hours drive and well worth a visit, we took the local bus into Libon from the village, well worth the 7 euro,s each way and so much to see and do. The information Miki & Colin gave us on the house and surrounding area was exceptional, the local car hire company they recommend picked us from the airport to collect the car from their compound in the village and then took us back to the airport hassle free. Although the restaurants were limited, the food was excellent and great value for money especially local fish and produce. Many thanks L & K
