Pool / Spa
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Friendly hosts, plenty of room, beautiful location.
We were 10 adults that stayed for ten days in Almoçageme during one of the hottest European summers on record. But we “had it made in the shade”, enjoying the “Micro-climate” in Almocageme.
The pool was delightful and clean, the home, though older was large enough for our needs and well appointed.
We enjoyed our meals on the terrace with a view of the ocean and Copa da Roca.
We were also located within a short walk to the center of Almocageme where we could use the market and take a bus to Sintra or Cascais.
A traditional style restaurant was located within walking distance, and was delicious, we went twice.
The internet was spotty, but when I mentioned it, our hosts worked on it timely and got it up and going again.
We had a 30 min walk to “Praia Grande” beach ( the reason it took a bit of time was the many stairs to go down to the beach)
As you went down the stairs there was the fascinating dinosaur footprints in the rock face, so you could examine the fossils and rest as you did.
I very much enjoyed our vacation in this area of Portugal, so much to see, beautiful scenery and generous, hospitable people.
Thank you so much Holley, it is a pleasure to have guests like you and your friends.
We hope that you return to Portugal soon!
The house is well located between Cascais & Sintra, on a big plot with distant views towards the sea
This is a quiet charming but dated property with good views & very kind helpful owners. We used it as a base whilst we explored & went surfing nearby. The decor & bathrooms are dated but it's fine. The restaurant Sisudo nearby in the village is outstanding & certainly worth going to . Don't expect a modern shiny villa but if you want a break and house with a pool this is a good place to stay.
Philip, thank you for having written a comment on my property where you've stayed recently. In spite of your positive comments, I notice that you just gave us 3 stars, while generally we have got 5 stars all these years from the many guests we have hosted. We would be grateful if you could inform us on the less positive points you experienced, so that we could improve on them.
In any case, I look forward on having you and your nice family sometime again as our guests. Best wishes, António
