We stayed in this wonderful house for two weeks with our 12 and 9 year old boys. It was a super base from which to visit a great range of different beaches within half an hour's drive - from the town beaches of Sesimbra itself, a long but worthwhile walk down the hill, through beautiful south facing and protected beaches at the foot of the Serra de Arrabida which were great for swimming, stand up paddle boarding and snorkelling, to the wide expanse of west-facing Meco Beach, ideal for playing with the waves and sunbathing. It was also a great base for daytrips to do walks in Serra de Arrabida and to visit the attractions of Lisbon and Sintra.
We loved coming back to the cool and inviting house in the midday heat, where we could eat out on the large terrace and enjoy the views over Sesimbra and the sea. It is very well equipped and comfortable, and in a quiet location, though only a walk away from the restaurants and shops of Sesimbra.
Verena and Andre couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful hosts. They provided a great range of excellent recommendations on what to do and where to go in the area, and were very thoughtful and mindful of what might interest us. It was a memorable stay!
The villa is one of the best ones in the resort: it is in good condition and it has clearly been well maintained. There´s plenty of room both inside in the villa and out in the garden. With air conditioning and an extra water tank your stay is guaranteed to be enjoyable regardless of the weather. Both the owners and Rita, the local contact person are very helpful.
This was our second visit to the resort (first one was 2015). The resort is under new management and it seems that they are taking a bit more care of the place (eg. the club house was way more active compared to our previous visit). There also seemed to be a bit more people visiting the resort. Nevertheless, there is still a large number of empty and run-down villas and apartments in the resort. Hopefully they find new owners for these ones too so that the general atmosphere of the resort gets even better.
This is a great location to visit different areas around southern Portugal - highly recommended in many ways. Thank you David and Heidi!
