Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Barreiro - Amado-Apartments

2 Double en-suite Bedrooms + 2 double sofa beds, huge living room and terrace

We have a fully refurbished rental apartment in a building owned and built by our family. The current owners are the third generation of the family to manage the property, even the wood used in the building came from trees grown by our great-grandfather.

The apartments are on the edge of the recently redeveloped town square boasting a new fresh produce market, cafés, restaurants, and bars to one side and a sub-tropical park to the other side. An underground car park is located under the town square.

The apartment has two double bedrooms, a large lounge and dining room, bathroom, and a fully fitted modern kitchen with oven, hob, refrigerator, dishwasher, and washing machine.

We can provide cot, high chair, and baby bath for infants.

About Will

We are a Portuguese family with strong connections to England. Most members of our family have lived in both countries, some are Portuguese by birth, others are English, one could say we are a true Anglo-Portuguese family, with great affection for both countries.

Will purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Will chose Costa Azul - Setubal area

The apartment is in a family property originally dating from 1935. We are the third generation of the family responsible for the building and have fully modernised the property whilst maintaining its original character. We love the proximity to Lisbon without actually having to be in the city itself. We love the ease with which we can get to some of the finest undeveloped beaches in Portugal with their mountain backdrop. We like being in a Portuguese 'village' centre with its wonderful market and restaurants, the park and the abundance of wildlife all around.

What makes this apartment unique

Over the passing years, our family has witnessed many transformations in this important town. Some things have stayed the same, the fresh food market at our doorstep, the wonderful park and the treetops at our windows. The recent reincarnation of the town has transformed it into the perfect location for visiting Lisbon whilst avoiding all the noise and bustle of actually being in the capital city. The apartment is a great place to relax, wonderful for 'people watching' at the pavement cafés or in the park. It's is great to have everything at your doorstep so that your holiday is exactly that, a rest, a recharging of the batteries, something completely different from the routine in a complete Portuguese setting.


If you are a nature lover, this really is the perfect location. Four major Nature Reserves are within 30 kilometres offering wetland, estuary, and mountain range flora and fauna. We have exotic birds, dolphins, and rare plants. We even have a fossilized forest. Most unique of all is the rarest bird in Europe. The Crested Myna, a Chinese bird, can only be found in and around Barreiro. This rare bird actually roosts in the trees of the park outside our apartment. This the kind of rare gift that makes a place exceptional.

We had a pleasant stay in the apartment, which was very well equipped and was very comfortable for us. The location is convenient and the environment is great.

The only problem we had was that it was extremely cold and the heating was insufficient for such an open space and such cold weather. Anyway, we are left with a positive feeling and we would return in the future, maybe in spring or autumn.

Eine perfekte Unterkunft in der Nähe von Lissabon

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns für das Apartment G entschieden, da es auch eine Terrasse hatte. Das Apartment ist sehr gut ausgestattet, sehr groß und sauber und die Lage ist einfach super: die Fähre nach Lissabon sowie der Bahnhof sind zu Fuß erreichbar ebenso die Strandpromenade und das Naturreservat mit den Gezeitenmühlen. Tagesmarkt, Supermärkte, Bäckereien, Apotheken, usw sind um die Ecke. Von Maria wurden wir sehr herzlich empfangen und bestens betreut. Wir fühlten uns sehr, sehr wohl und kommen ganz bestimmt im nächsten Jahr wieder.

Appartement très agréable bien équipé et propre. Point négatif c'est bruyant l'été (Bar animés)

  • 4 of 5

Will est un proprietaires agréable et disponible, rien à redire sur l'appartement dans lequel il fait bon passer des vacances.

Cependant les bars de la place sur laquelle donne le balcon sont animés tard le soir, en tenir compte si vous souhaitez vous coucher tôt ou si vous venez avec de jeunes enfants. La proximité de Lisbonne est agreable, on peut s'y rendre en bateau et cela permet d'éviter le stress des parkings. Le dernier bateau circule aux alentours de minuit ce qui laisse du temps pour profiter de la vie nocturne. Lisbonne au mois d'août est envahie par les touristes, les files d'attente aux

Monuments sont longues. Toutefois ce fut pour nous un agreable séjour en famille.

Appartement agréable

  • 3 of 5

Appartement agréable, un peu chaud lors des grosses chaleurs. Terrasse bien plaisante.

Logement bien équipé. Manque cependant séchoir pour le linge. Réfrigérateur non réglable et pas très froid.

Quartier animé (place avec bars, et marché de produits frais).

Possibilité de prendre le bateau pour centre de Lisbonne bien pratique.

Par contre, quartier avec beaucoup d'immeubles en construction abandonnés.

Un apartamento estupendo, bien ubicado y cómodo. Está bien equipado, salvo para enfrentar olas de frío, ya que la calefacción se queda un poco corta. No obstante, la experiencia en esta propiedad es estupenda y el dueño es encantador.

Appartement de très bon standing en plein centre d'une ville que nous ne connaissions pas et que nous avons pris plaisir à découvrir. Les ventilateurs ont été appréciés en cette période de canicule.

The apartment is in the centre of Barreiro and is ideally placed for access to Lisbon and the historic towns and cities of the Alentejo - the plain or steppes separating Lisbon from the Algarve.The town is 15 minutes by fast catamaran ferry into the historic heart of down town Lisbon. Barreiro is a Lisbon commuter suburb, with a ferry instead of a train.

The centre of Barreiro has recently undergone a transformation with the building of the new market and the new town square, both directly outside the apartment. A large park is a few metres away with a children's play area and an ornamental pond with fountains. The newly laid patterned pavements are in the traditional Portuguese style, and a new shopping centre, Barreiro Forum, is at the end of the main street less than 500 metres away. The waterfront, with wonderful views across the river Tejo to Lisbon is 200 metres distant. Added to the recent upgrading of the ferry terminal with its high speed catamaran ferries and an electrified railway link, it is the essence of a modern Portuguese town. Yet old Barreiro is never far away.

The location is excellent for visiting Lisbon, yet provides a splendid retreat away from the bustle of the capital city. It is also the perfect spot for visiting Nature Reserves - there are four reserves within 25km drive where it is possible to see flamingos, storks, egrets, heron and a wide variety of estuary birds. The Crested Myna, the rarest bird in Europe, can only be found in Barreiro and the immediate surrounding area. This unique bird actually roosts in the park outside the apartment.


Estuary Villages

A host of pretty towns and villages edge the estuary east from Barreiro to the town of Alcochete.


Rosario boasts a very pretty church on a promontory overlooking the estuary, as well as an excellent waterfront restaurant and 19C 'patio' of beautifully maintained social housing. One can walk from the church, past the old oyster washing and packing factory, and follow the coastline onto the marshes for excellent bird watching.


Sarilhos Pequenhos is a typical Alentejo style village. Follow the road to the park and beach at the waterfront. The Club Naval (signposted from the centre) is an excellent location for birdwatching.


Montijo - a large town with a fully restored tidal water mill and several very pretty churches.


Alcochete - a very important town in the history of Portugal. During Portugal's Golden Age of the Discoveries, the King had his summer palace in Alcochete. The Treaty of Tordesillas that divided the New World between Portugal and Spain was presented to the King at his summer palace. A monument to the discoveries rests just at the entrance to the village, near the end of the old ferry pier. The king's palace was adjacent to the monument where a 'mansion house' sits behind metal gates. The small church on the opposite side of the road is a museum containing magnificent 15C and 16C paintings from the time of the Golden Age.


Today's Alcochete is mixture of old and new. The old heart of the village is by and large beautifully maintained with many fine buildings that speak of the town's past opulence. The church in the town centre was once a mosque dating from the time when the Moors ruled southern Portugal. The town boasts many fine restaurants supported by the new commuter homes being built all around the old.


The August summer festival sees the streets and shop-fronts boarded for the running of the bulls, a festival that long pre-dates Pampalona. The history of bull fighting in Portugal is celebrated in the excellent restaurant Barrete Verde (Green Beret) which is the headquarters for a brave group of men called Forcados who challenge the bull, on foot and unarmed, as the climatic end to a Portuguese bull fight. On the northern out skirt of Alcochete is Europe's largest Outlet Shopping Village with all the famous brands represented, and as you might expect to find in Portugal, it boasts a host of restaurants.


It is almost impossible not to 'bird watch' in Alcochete, the salt pens and marshes on the western outskirts teem with wildlife. Just at the northern edge of the village, the road forks left down to a small reserve area which is a good starting point for exploring the shoreline. The Nature Reserves office is located on Rua do Norte overlooking the estuary.

Market square with live performance almost every weekend from music to stilt-walkers. Fast ferry connection to the centre of Lisbon. Excellent road connections to historic towns south of Lisbon.

Beautiful beaches, some of the best in Europe, just a short drive distant.
