We are a family of 5 (3 daughters aged 13/12/12). We spent 5 days of October half term at the farmhouse. We loved the property - plenty of space to relax, eat together, watch movies. The girls enjoyed exploring the garden and even braved the pool. The weather was mixed sun/rain but didn’t stop us from exploring: one day in Lisbon (45 mins drive away); other days to different beaches, including taking the ferry over to troia and driving down the peninsula. Lovely fish/seafood lunches in restaurants on beaches and in Lisbon. The property owners were extremely helpful, answering our questions in advance and waiting to welcome us late at the property on our Friday evening arrival. The house is well stocked for cooking utensils etc and the owners kindly left us some bread which we appreciated when we arrived. A good supermarket about 10 minutes drive away. We hope to visit again.
We stayed for 3 weeks from the middle of September to early October 2018. Clearly the fact that we did not see a cloud for the whole time was a huge factor, however the villa was a further big bonus. It was spotlessly clean and well presented as well as being fully equipped (the top-line coffee maker was especially appreciated!). Beds were extremely comfortable and each bedroom having an en-suite was a big bonus. David & Heidi Bottomley, the owners were very accommodating and always responded quickly to any communications. Likewise, Rita, who managed the property locally was very pleasant and supportive. Our son joined us for some of the time with his family including our 6 month old grandson and the provision of a very good cot and high chair was greatly appreciated.
What would improve things further? Provision of a small, hotel-style safe would be great asset; hooks on the wall for the shower heads and replacement of the large sun parasol which has now seen better days. Nevertheless we hope to return to this lovely villa.
