I grew up in the country in the interior center of PORTUGAL.
Now I live in a smal town near the sea, not far from the property.
Antonio Costa e Silva. purchased this cottage in 1980
Because this property is in the country but not far from Big towns, like Sintra, Cascais, Estoril or Lisbon
The wiews are over the sea (Cabo da Roca, the most wester point in Europe). We have tranquility and large gardens.
Very peaceful place to spend some quality time.
Slightly dated but thats the whole point of this place.
Slightly let down by the lack of wifi in the apartment.
Very clean and tidy everywhere.
Will certainly stay again.
We can recommend to book a flat there because of: very nice staff, big flat, fully equipped kitchen, very nice view over atlantic ocean and Cabo da roca, perfect cleaning service, very nice garden just
for the few flats, not too far from Cascais where you have a very good and cheap train connection to Lissabon, little supermarket few driving minutes away, interesting coast in a walking distance, short driving distance to the park around Sintra.
May be good to know: Beginning of May was still not too warm this year, so the first days the available heating was active. For us with a small child this heating was a bit too weak. But we did not try the further available fireside and it was not such a big problem - so we did not ask for support.
So in general: a place for nice holidays!
My husband and I stayed here in March of this year (2011). The hosts are absolutely fantastic and the staff is wonderful as well !. The grounds are gorgeous. The views are spectacular and the cottage we rented was unbelievable !!! We would definately recommend these accomodations to anyone and everyone!!!
Thank you making our holiday time in Portugal so wonderful.

This was our second location and different in that it was not a beach location but up in the hills above Cascais. But beautiful for all that. It was peaceful with wonderful views down to the Sea. So beaches were not far away and were plentiful. This is an excellent location for visiting so many places, including the historic area of Sintra and also Lisbon itself - easily accessible by train from Cascais. And the range of beaches nearby - from busy, interesting towns like Cascais and Estoril, to quiet little inlets with few tourist. The accommodation was most comfortable with all needs met and it was wonderful to return after a day out to have it cleaned and serviced every day.. You do need a car and rooms have no TV or Hi fi, but there is a "family room" with all you might need to entertain children - or take your own.

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié les innombrables attentions de notre hôte pour ce séjour avec notre petit bébé de 10 mois.
Tout était très propre, nous n'avons manqué de rien grâce à Maria Teresa qui déborde de bienveillance.
C'est un lieu idéalement situé pour la tranquillité, pour profiter de la plage et également proche de Lisbonne et de Sintra pour visiter.
Nous remercions encore Maria Teresa d'avoir rendu notre séjour si agréable.
Somos una familia de 2 adultos y 2 niños y todos lo pasamos fenomenal en este alojamiento. Precioso entorno rural, unas maravillosas vistas, un jardín lleno de árboles y flores con tumbonas y zonas privadas para cada casa, una piscina para los niños (a pesar de que las demás casas también estaban ocupadas por otras familias, no se suele coincidir en las zonas comunes) y toda la tranquilidad de la montaña, sin olvidar la cercanía en coche de maravillosas playas como la de Guincho. Se puede hacer muchas excursiones a los alrededores, Cascais, Sintra, etc. Muy cerca se encuentra un molino restaurado como bar-restaurante al que se puede ir andando desde la casa y tomar unas estupendas caipiriñas. La atención y limpieza muy buena también, incluso nos dejaron una caja con muchos juguetes para los niños y les prepararon un rincón muy acogedor para dormir separado con un biombo del salón y de ese modo pudimos coger la casa que queríamos en las fechas que podíamos. Recomendaríamos al 100% este alojamiento por su buena relación calidad-precio y esta estupenda zona tan bonita de nuestra vecina Portugal.
Mountain or Beach? Don’t worry, we have them both. One of the most peculiar and astonishing surroundings you’ll ever found in Portugal. We have swimming pool for a quiet sunny afternoon.
