Lots of nooks and crannies to discover, and a good spring board for sight seeing. We shopped locally, and the butchers can be well recommended.
Praia grande is well worth a visit with a wide range of restaurants (café, mid price and even a Michelin starred one). Great for surfing.
Ralph was a great host and gave us lots of tips and help. Well maintained.
Would revisit, no question.
Upon arrival we were wowed by the beauty of the house - blended modern with traditional Portuguese country styled interiors - it makes for an instant warmth. Incredibly roomy downstairs with eating areas both in the huge kitchen, dinning room and splendidly pointed veranda, overlooking the ocean. All mod cons are there. You do not need aircon as thick walls and plenty of sea breeze. Upstairs you have 3 very well decorated bedrooms. One double and 2 twins. One ensuite and another bathroom. 2 bedrooms with stunning views; including master with glorious balcony with ocean-view. Garden is lovingly presented and the pool is adequate and most definitely bigger than a plunge pool. The sea is great for a long swim!! The views throughout the day are stunning and the sunsets are panoramic. Excellent barbecue area and lovely conservatory. The house is situated within walking distance of a very beautiful beach and the local big village of Praia das Macas which offers diverse and good eating choices. Within short driving distance there are various other stunning beaches; all of which have some truly outstanding restaurants. Close by there is Sintra which is a must and the surrounding historical building and gardens and fantastic walks with breathtaking countryside. Additionally Cascais is close by and those who like a touch of class are well advised to visit 'The Cannes' of Portugal! The Villa can be used as a base to do day trips to Lisbon and the many other beautiful sites nearby. Last but not least the owners are very nice and are very responsive to any needs. We loved it and so will you!
