The house is stunning, with many vistas through the house and onto the gardens. It is filled with beautiful furniture and antiques. We loved being able to use all the different areas surrounding the house and pool to chill out and read, in sun or shade. The pool table, table tennis and table football were a huge hit with our group! The location is great for day trips (the recommendations provided by Christina in terms of beaches, ports and markets were great!) and you are only 30 minutes from Lisbon. Highly recommended.

The spacious grounds , heated pool and well appointed dwelling were exactly what we wanted, helped by excellent weather also. Lisbon is accessible in 30-40 minutes by car/train/bus and some fantastic beaches are also within 10 minutes drive. The nearby village had all conveniences and some pleasant cafes also. David the owner was ever helpful, and we would recommend this villa for any group .
