Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this two bedroom home. The location is wonderful and exactly what we were looking for. The home was what we expected from the description. Pedro was very helpful and welcoming. There is a market, literally, right outside the door where we did all of our shopping. The local beach is beautiful; both during the day and at sunset.

Une location dans un village charmant et authentique

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un superbe séjour dans la région de Sintra: plages, monuments, vues, villes magnifiques, la maison est idéalement placée, elle est assez grande, fonctionnelle, au centre du village mais non bruyante, le propriétaire est accueillant, sympathique , les Portugais sont chaleureux, la cuisine savoureuse et copieuse, les prix défiant toute concurrence! Nous reviendrons visiter une autre région de ce beau pays, que du bonheur et plaisir! Valérie, Christophe et Victor de Bourgogne

Vacanze in Portogallo

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati con la mia famiglia per l'intero mese di settembre in questo alloggio. Ottima posizione per raggiungere le mete più belle della zona di Sintra. Comodo per ogni necessità e dotato di wi-fi. Pedro e la sua famiglia sono persone disponibili e gentili. Consiglio per una vacanza in Portogallo.

Maison typique fonctionnelle et agréable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable grâce à la location et sa situation géographique. Cadre typique et accueillant, petit village avec tout à proximité, idéal.

La maison correspond bien à la description et permet d'accueillir aisément deux couples. Petite terrasse super agréable pour les soirées barbecue.

Nous retenons également l'accueil chaleureux des propriétaires qui ont su nous guider dans nos recherches de lieux touristiques, de restaurants typiques (a Toca do Julio) et le choix de sardines fraîches. Merci encore!
