About Cristina Holst

Portuguese lawyer, living in London, married to a Dutchman and speaking French at home... A European mother of three: 1 girl and 2 boys!

I love exercise, reading and going to the theatre... when I have time.

Cristina Holst purchased this villa in 2006

Why Cristina Holst chose Sesimbra

Close to where I spent many summers... I showed the region to my husband who grew up in Cannes, South of France, and he fell in love (fortunately!).

We bought the plot in 2006, started building when our daughter was born and settled in for our fist holiday when our first son was born! We come as often as possible but mainly August, Christmas and Easter.

What makes this villa unique

We love the house because it is great all-year round: close to Lisbon centre to go out, discover, meet friends; but also very close to the sea; or just time to relax and enjoy swimming pool, tennis, horse riding and reading.

Truly...It was "Family Heaven"

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 10 very relaxing days here in Sesimbra.The house is perfect and quite private. The location is great for day trips to Lisbon and to the beach at Sesimbra and Moinho de Baixo. At the house, the children enjoyed the trampoline and play structure. I'm sure the pool is nice, but we visited in April and it was too cold for swimming. The kitchen is very well equipped. There is an extensive movie library. The garden is idyllic. It's a fantastic property. We hope to return.

Luxusvilla mit hochwertiger Ausstattung, gepflegter Garten, Platz ohne Ende.

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa ist geschmackvoll und mit erlesenem Mobiliar ausgestattet, es ist so viel Platz, dass man sich auch bei größeren

Gruppen oder Familien mal zurück ziehen kann. Ein gepflegter Garten und der große Pool laden zum Relaxen ein.

Absolut ruhige Lage (Auto erforderlich). Für Urlauber mit gehobenem Anspruch empfelenswert.

Kleiner Mangel: in einigen Bädern gibt es keine Steckdosen.

Very nice house and beautiful surrondings

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this wonderful house. The outside-area was perfect and suited us very well. We were 8 adults and 7 children and the house was spacious, with bathrooms and a great private pool 50 meteres from the house. The children had lots to do, with the pool, a playhouse, tabletennis, a hammock, a field to play football, a tennis court not too far away, and overall a beautiful outdoor-area. The house was very nice furnished with lots of books and movies.The owner was friendly and helpful. I warmly reccomend it!

Perfekt sted å feriere med storfamilien

  • 5 of 5

Vi hadde en deilig uke med barn og barnebarn, og alle storkoste seg! Stedet ligger i landlige omgivelser og har stor plass både inne og ute for aktiviteter for alle aldre! Kjøkkenet er stort og velutstyrt, og alle middager ble inntatt i den hyggelige pergolaen. For feiringen av vårt 70 års jubileum bestilte vi deilig portugisisk mat fra ett av stedets restauranter (Rosita). Det var ikke et stort behov for å bevege seg utenfor området, men et besøk til nærliggende strender kan likevel anbefales!

Séjour de rêve à Breijos

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine à Breijos. Cette maison est tout simplement superbe, tant par sa taille / disposition que par sa décoration faite avec goût et raffinement. En effet, très belle villa, spacieuse: chaque chambre a sa propre SDB, Toilettes, dressing / grand séjour ... en fait tout est grand.

Egalement cuisine très bien équipée et adaptée quand on est nombreux.

L'extérieur, jardin paysagé est très reposant mais aussi adapté aux enfants (baby foot, ping pong, trampoline, balançoire, cabane, cages de foot.....).

Pour le temps, nous avons pu en profiter pour être à l'extérieur mais limite pour se baigner à la piscine.

En résumé, villa recommandée.
