Thierry's apartment is comfortable and well equipped and Dorindo was really helpful. We had a great time here. When we stayed there was no Wifi, but I think this is being sorted out and it didn't really affect us. The apartment has a great sea view, parking is easy and the beaches are just a stroll away. It is really peaceful and the neighbours are very friendly and quiet. If you fancy exploring a little you're only about 25 minutes from Portinho d'Arrabida which is well worth a visit (even the drive to it is stunning) and you have the whole Serra d'Arrabida on your doorstep to walk in. Fonte da Telha on the Costa da Caparica is only about half an hour away. Probably stay in Sesimbra at the weekend though as parking can be an issue at both places. The people in the local shop Supermercado da Nicola are really friendly and helpful so I'd recommend it for your daily groceries and papo secos, the hyper market is about a 10 minute car drive so everything is really convenient. We really enjoyed our stay here and thought it was great value for money.
Great area woth lots to do, dramatic coastline and easy access back into Lisbon, a relaxed, though hilly city to explore (approx 50 mins). Villa has a stunning hillside setting but the road down into Sesimbra is steep, quite busy and no proper footpath. Sesimbra is a great little town with a sandy beach and lots of fish restaurants.
Villa is spacious, great for 10 of us, lots of eating out areas and the pool has some natural shade which was useful in the afternoons. No table tennis table (damaged during the winter apparently). Owners on site and very helpful, especially when we had a mis-understanding over the hourly rate of the local chef who came to cook for us one evening- sorted the following day and money reimbursed without any problems.
Put Estrada de Argeis into your sat nav and that will get you to the road at the bottom of the dead-end lane the villa is located on (which isn't recognised by sat navs). Plenty of local supermarkets for supplies. We enjoyed the walk up to the local castle and along the coast to find the dionosaur footpronts.
Overall, a really good family holiday, just wish we'd booked to stay longer!
