In the first week there were 12 of us and in the second week the house was full. Three families with grown up 'children'. There was plenty of space. The three master en suite bedrooms which open out onto the pool area are gorgeous and the 5 other bedrooms (4 of which share two bathrooms, the other of which is on two levels in a separate part of the house with its own bathroom downstairs) are simpler but more than adequate for children, teenagers or young adults. The upstairs living and kitchen area is huge and bright and the terrace looks out over countryside and nothing else; not another building in sight. Great place to watch the sunset from. The only tiny niggle that we had was the size of the barbecue and oven. Cooking for 16 people was a bit of a challenge. However, the owner heard our feedback graciously and hopefully that will change for next year. The setting is idyllic in the middle of acres of farmland where you can walk, run or ramble for hours without meeting another soul. The house is about 1.5 km from the main road and from there it is a short drive to two really good supermarkets and the fish market at Sesimbra is awesome and not expensive by British standards. The house is about 20 minutes from several huge sandy beaches. The sea is sometimes rough and quite cold but if you like waves then you will love this bit of coast. The 'lagoon' beach' has an expanse of safe shallow water for families with small children. Guilherme, our host, was welcoming and incredibly helpful. We have already booked to return next year. We have fallen in love with Portugal and this is the best holiday house we have ever stayed in.

The house is beautifully designed and furnished and equipped to the highest standards . A short walk to the village with a couple of lovely restaurants and bars. Also a short drive to a number of gorgeous beach. 45 minutes from Lisbon Airport, we will definitely be back!!

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.
