                                                      Beautiful place in quiet surroundings

                                                      5 of 5
                                                      We enjoyed the stay at this property very much. Even if the location is in a very quiet and rural area, the distance to Lisbon is no problem (appox 30-45 minutes drive – and hiring a car is an absolutely must). We was in Lisboa 4 days during our 2 weeks stay. Also relative short distance to the beaches at Sesimbra and the fantastic beaches at Lagoa de Albufeira. Also a nice village (Nogueira the Azeitao) in 3 km distance with several restaurants and covering all basic shopping needs. We also visited Sintra and Setubal during our stay – all places easily accessible by car. The property is large, with some green lawns suitable for sports like badminton or volleyball. The pool is large enough and deep enough to do some actual swimming/exercise (maybe less suitable for small children). The house covered our needs, with all necessary equipment, 4 bedrooms with good size and good-working air-con, plenty of outdoor furniture, a outdoor grill for barbecue, and several nice places to relax and look at the beautiful views. We where 7 people staying, and it felt at no time over-crowded. The owner of the place, Vasco, is both helpful, service minded, friendly and professional – and we had no problems at all in the practical arrangements regarding booking or during the stay. This was our first visit to Portugal, and we really fell in love with the country, the climate and the Lisboa area. Definitely not out last visit to Portugal. And if city night life or walking distance to the beach is not your top priority, I will absolutely recommend you to stay and enjoy relaxing days in Vasco’s villa.

                                                      Fantastic villa - friendly with privacy

                                                      5 of 5
                                                      The Villa in Meco is wonderful. We had a fantastic week in a small and friendly town situated perfectly between sea and shore side. Many nights with barbeque was enjoyed next to the pool. For sure we will come back and enjoy the villa and portugeuse lifestyle again. Thomas and Mette

                                                      Immaculate Villa

                                                      5 of 5
                                                      This is a lovely villa located in a quiet area. The villa is very modern and has everything you could possibly need for your stay! The villa was extremely clean and was also cleaned half way through our stay. The area was quiet so I would recommend having a car but there was a supermarket in walking distance. There were 3 great supermarkets nearby that we drove to within 5 minutes. The nearby towns Sesimbra and Setubal are lovely traditional towns to visit. Lisbon is only a 45 minute drive away. Weather was beautiful! I would return :)
