Perfect location to relax

5 of 5
The property is located about 45mins from centre of Lisbon and close to seaside town of Sesimbra which makes it a great location The apartment is really well furnished and has an amazing balcony with views to the Atlantic coast. The pool and garden are lovely and never busy as just a few apartments have access. There are some great local restaurants to which provide amazing value for money and local dishes We loved our stay
