                                                            There was plenty or room for the eight of us. The pool which was under cover was warm and nice to use any time of day or night. It is close to a number of restaurants which were all good. within 50 meters of a cash machine. Close to the beach. Had a good stay.

                                                            The perfect place to switch off

                                                            We stayed in this lovely little chalet in mid October. Although the weather was a little inclement the chalet kept us comfortable and dry. It is simply kitted out but has everything you need and had me daydreaming of leading a more simple life on a permanent basis. It is a good base for walking and exploring the surrounding area and the castle is is easly accessed by a winding track up the hill to the rear of the propety. With no TV but a good Wi-Fi connection we were able to switch off from the outside world but still keep in touch with family and friends. There is lovely outside decked area with a BBQ and beautiful views for the warmer weather and the most beautiful beaches are a short but robust walk away. This is one of the few places we have stayed that have gone on my return to list.

                                                            Beautiful place in quiet surroundings

                                                            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.
