The villa is very spacious, 3 nice, large bedrooms all ensuite and all with very comfortable beds, plenty of wardrobe storage space for all of us girls. The villa was spotlessly clean on our arrival. 10 minute drive into town to supermarkets and restaurants - can highly recommend the Tapas bar by the castle, food was so good we went twice. Although we only cooked one evening meal in the villa, the kitchen was very well equipped and had everything we needed. Could maybe do with a roller blind in the kitchen as it was unbelievably hot in the afternoons. The outside pool and deck area was lovely and spacious, plenty of shade if you wanted to escape the sun. All in all, very happy with our choice of holiday villa for 2017. The Mablers

Wir haben uns bestens "betreut" gefühlt (Kontakt, Tipps, Schnorchelausrüstung...). Das Haus ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, wobei das Wohn-Esszimmer der zentrale Raum mit großer Fensterfront zur herrlichen Terrasse ist. Man hat einen tollen Ausblick auf Schiffe (Setubalhafen) und manchmal sogar Delfine. Das ist auf jeden Fall ein Highlight! Die Küche ist bestens ausgestattet, wir haben nichts vermisst. Es gibt zwei WC (eines von außen zugänglich) und ein kleines, schönes Bad (war für uns Zwei ganz wunderbar ausreichend). Die Schlafräume sind recht klein, die Matratzen waren uns zu hart und zu dünn (ist aber Geschmackssache!). Nachts ist es (bis auf ein paar Hunde) angenehm ruhig. Der Pool ist klasse (klein aber fein) und wir haben ihn wirklich gerne genutzt! Der kleine Strand unterhalb des Hauses bietet allerbeste Schnorchelmöglichkeiten, man kann im glasklarem Wasser sehr schön schwimmen oder auf dem Surfboard paddeln. Allerdings ist der Strand auch sehr gut besucht, wie viele Strände an der Serra Arrabida. Die Strände am offenen Atlantik (bei Meca) sind weiter, aber auch windig und haben ganz ordentliche Wellen (überwacht). Viele interessante Ausflugsziele (Evora, Marvao, Alcacer, Troia (im südlichen Bereich), Lissabon, Setubal, Sessimbra...) sind in max 2 Std bestens zu erreichen. Ein wunderbares Haus in bester, sehr beliebter Lage mit guten Ausflugsmöglichkeiten und äußerst netten Vermietern.
