The house was perfect for two families! Me and my husband slept on the cosy attic (very small but fun!) and our friends stayed on the first floor with the kids. The house is very simple but it has some nice details of modern decoration, and it has everything you need. We spent most of the time on the second living-room (the one that opens to the garden), enjoying the sun on the private garden with some great barbecues. Poll was also great. The house is very close from the beach, but it was a little windy on October so we didn't spend much time there. Instead we took the car and visit Arrabida, Sesimbra and Setubal. The overall experience was very good!

Stylish decoration, enclosed garden and pet friendly. If you are a light sleeper the noise of neighbouring chickens and dogs with their dawn chorus might be annoying. On the bright side there's no traffic noise. We had a small problem with the electricity tripping out because the heating was in use, unfortunately resulting in a sliced thumb as the lights went out during dinner preparation, but overall a very comfortable stay, in tasteful surroundings and easy access to everything we wanted to visit. Luis was very friendly and accommodating and we would have no hesitation in recommending the place. We very much look forward to returning.

The house was very clean and tidy. The owner gave us lots of information about the area and was very quick to respond to any questions we had about the house or area. We would book this property again for another holiday.
