We stayed at “Uma Casa com vista para o mar” for 2 weeks in August and were absolutely delighted. We were a party of 5 adults with 2 teenage boys and this spacious villa had plenty of room to accommodate us all easily.
Antonio and Helena, who had been a great help with the booking process, greeted us on our arrival and showed us around the villa. They made sure that we were comfortable and answered any questions we had. They obviously have great pride in their house.
This four-storey villa with a large corkscrew staircase is spacious, well equipped, and has great natural light levels. The bedrooms and communal rooms are tastefully furnished, decorated and comfortably appointed with a lot of storage space. The bathrooms too are luxurious.
The view from anywhere at the front of the house, but especially from the upper dining room, is truly astonishing. While eating in here every evening we watched the coming and going of the many boats in the bay of Sesimbra, and as one of our party is a keen amateur astronomer it was ideal for star, and moon, gazing.
The secluded pool area is situated in the top garden. A gazebo provides plenty of shade on hot days and we found it lovely to sit and eat lunch here.
From our experience, Sesimbra is ideally situated for days out. Lisbon is only half an hour’s drive and the great Palaces of Sintra about 45 minutes. There are many stunningly beautiful well-managed sandy beaches within a short driving distance. Whilst Sesimbra with its narrow streets is quaint, with a strong fishing heritage, we found the beach here too busy and commercialised for our tastes particularly during the weekend periods.
We had a wonderful holiday and would highly recommend this lovely villa as a holiday home. Also a big thank you to Antonio and Helena for making it such a pleasurable and relaxing place to stay.
Dear non German native speakers,
sorry for the review in German; have fun with the google translation. Just a brief summary of the following lines: It was fantastic :-)
Wir waren für etwas mehr als eine Woche mit drei Generationen (2x Großeltern, 2 x Eltern und 3 Kinder unter 10 Jahren) in diesem Haus und sind absolut begeistert. Es passt einfach alles: das Haus, die Umgebung und die Vermieter.
Das Haus bietet viel Platz sowohl zum Zurückziehen als auch zum großen Familienessen. Es ist umfangreich eingerichtet, von Fernseher über großzügige Küche bis zur Luftmatratze ist alles da.
In der Umgebung lässt sich so viel Kultur und Natur entdecken: egal, ob bei Sonne am Strand oder Museum und Shopping bei Regen. Mit dem Auto ist Lissabon knapp eine Stunde entfernt, Setubal (Delfin Watching mit dem Katamaran empfehlenswert!) ist in 30 Minuten und Sandstrandbuchen sind in 15 Minuten zu erreichen. Restaurants gibt es für alle Geschmacksrichtungen wie Sand am Meer. Wer nicht mehr das Haus verlassen möchte (kann ich verstehen), der kann natürlich die Küche(n) oder den Grill anwerfen. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt es im Ort oder in 5 km Entfernung in großen Supermärkten (> continente oder Aldi).
Achja, die Vermieter Antonio und Helena sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Händchen für (Innen)Architektur und Perfektion merkt man sofort an dem sehr hohen Standard und sehr guten Zustand des Hauses und der Einrichtung. Also: Bitte sehr sorgsam mit Allem umgehen, da wir gerne wieder in dieses tolle Haus kommen wollen.
Very well equipped 4 storey house at the top of Sesimbra with a multitude of places to relax, eat and play as the day unfolded. The description was accurate, all bathrooms very well appointed, plentiful crockery and cooking utensils in the two dining areas. The top terrace with barbecue and excellent dining patio was a favourite. Minor warnings - the walk back from sesimbra is not for the unfit;15 mins uphill, but there is a bus and taxi is less than 5 Euros. Secondly; do not walk down from the pool with wet bare feet..it is slippy on the tiles. Sesimbra is full of great restaurants, particularly the Ribamar (posher), Lobo do mar (freshest fish), O Rodinhas (great seafood platter). All in all an excellent holiday base for a choice of Lisbon culture, beautiful beaches and great food.
Thank you Antonio for our recent stay in your fabulous house! The property is spacious, offering plenty of room for our 3 children and father. It was very clean and in perfect condition. The views across Sesimbra and the sea are truly stunning from dawn to dusk! The swimming pool was great - it kept the kids entertained for hours.
The property is an ideal base for the local beach and attractions in the surrounding area. It's a relatively short walk into town and the beach...but a tough walk back up the steep hill! The nearest decent sized supermarket is about 15mins in the car.
When there was a problem with one of the drains, it was fixed immediately. We loved eating in the top floor with the views, but this was hard work at times with the main kitchen 2 floors below.
For young kids using the pool, beware of the unguarded wall at one end.
We had to pay extra to transfer money for the deposit (from the UK), but I think there is now a homeaway option to avoid these costs.
In summary, fantastic!!
To live in the town of Sesimbra in this villa was amazing. Never having been to the region we had no idea of what to expect. The home owners met us and spent a great deal of time showing us all the nuances of the house. She even took us to town showing us all the points of interest, the bank atm, restaurants, hospital; they were very helpful. They also connected us to an amazing chef which we hired for 2 of our dinners while there. This added tremendously to our total Portugal experience.
The location was perfect. The views from any level of the house (5 levels) were like none I have ever been priveleged to wake up to every morning. There were 8 of us and the house was large enough to enjoy anywhere as a group or get away in a quiet spot as well.
The location with living areas on the main floor as well as the upper floor were spectacular.
All the steps were perfect for keeping us in shape for all of the wonderful food and wine of the region.
It was the best spot for our trip of a lifetime.
After a very warm welcome from the owner (who was always very helpful when needed some information) we spent a great time at Sesimbra house. The house is very well equipped and tastfully decorated. Fantastic 180° seaview from the upper floor, big patio with fireplace/grill and great pool area with garden. Restaurants in the area are simply furnished but great food (especially fish and seafood). Wonderful and large beaches. Lisbon is only 40' away by car. Nights get quite cool in September but wonderful during the day. We can honestly reccomend la "casa com vista para o mar" :-)
On the 'Costa Azul', the Atlantic Ocean meets the coast. From time to time, huge sand dunes touch the sea. Secluded beaches cut out of the green hills. These obvious contrasts make this an ideal place for holidays. The Sesimbra village is located in the middle of the so called 'Costa Azul', set on a curving turquoise bay 40 km south of Lisbon; Sesimbra is both an attractive fishing town and popular tourist resort. Protected from north winds by the slopes of the Serra da Arrábida, it was occupied by the Romans and later the Moors. 12 km west of Sesimbra, there is a flat promontory of Cabo Espichel, a wild enchanted place with magnificent views northwards to Lisbon and the mouth of the River Tagus. Sesimbra is also located in core of the Setúbal peninsula, so that means the neighbourhood of 2 natural reserves such as beautiful Arrábida reserve or the Sado river estuary reserve (known for its colony of dolphins). For the golf fans, the proximity of 3 golf courses(Perú,Aroeira and Montado)
Golf: Golf-There are tree Golf courses that could be easily accessed in the area, which are: 1- Quinta do Perú ; Herdade da Aroeira and Herdade do Montado.
