When he picked us upfront the airport he took us to the flat and pointed out many useful bits of information which greatly helped us to make the most of our short stay in Lisbon.

Vicky is a lovely and caring host. The gated inner garden was really appreciated as it prevented our young children from wandering around the swimming pool unattended. The house itself is really secured, in a lovely neighbourhood. Cascais is the prefect family holiday destination, it is a lovely up market town with beautiful beaches, 30 mins away from busy Lisbon and 35 mins away from Sintra national park. The local market has wonderful fresh fruits, fish, meat and vegetables. Although we visited early April, the weather was warm enough for us to splash in the pool everyday, the baby pool was very handy for the kids. Will recommend this place all heartedly:)
