About Ana Rodrigues
We are a very happy family, who live have lived in London for 30 years. My family constitutes myself (44 yrs old), my husband (44) and my daughter Ana (34)We are true animal lovers and have numerous pets including cats, a dog and a cocktail. We all love to travel and meet new people from different cultures and walks of life. I describe myself as a very well mannered friendly individual, who enjoys making friends and learning about new and different cultures. I am very honest and loyal and strive to provide the best customer service to my guests.
Ana Rodrigues purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Ana Rodrigues chose Municipality of Azambuja
I grew up in this same village and have always been in love with the area thus why I decided to purchase the villa there. It is a beautiful area providing great peacefulness but is nonetheless in range of many good amenities such as shops, cinemas, restaurants and bars. Additionally, it is only 30 minutes away from the capital Lisbon, where you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of this monumental city and again enjoy further amenities. It is also 30 minutes away from a range of many beautiful beaches either towards the south of Lisbon in Costa da Caparica or towards the West in Peniche. There are the opportunity to play golf in the town of Obidos and to do some horse riding a short 5 minutes walk away from the villa.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa is large and the outside garden areas are extremely spacious and fenced providing privacy to guests. There is a private pool so that guests who simply want to relax and enjoy the peacefulness of the villa may do so without having to leave the premises. Because the pool is not very deep it is also great for the children who enjoy spending their time in the water. Pets are welcome, and the villa is very pet friendly. The villa has everything you may need including all kitchen appliances and household appliances. We also provide towels and bed clothes for the beds. There is possible access to the internet if requested. If you enjoy good food at reasonable prices we can recommend very good restaurants in the area which make delicious food.

A lovely piece of rural Portugal
This quirky Villa is surrounded by farmland in a rural part of Central Portugal.
The garden and pool are lovely with lemon, orange and Avocados gowing on the trees. Also there is a lovely outside cooking,dining and seating area close to the pool so al-fresco living should be easy in the summer.
We stayed at the villa in January so needed the electric radiator and fire especially after dark.
Ana the owner was delightful from begining to end; providing good information on how to access the villa and quickly dealing with any queries we had whilst we were there.
The position of the villa was ideal for visitors with a car but most things were a short drive away rather than within easy walking distance. Best of all a train link to Lisbon is available in the nearby town which makes a visit to the Portuguese Capital very stress free.
Rooms in the villa are light and airy with an abundance of tiles as is traditional in the area.
There is room at the dining table for up to 8 people but for winter stays be aware that the lounge area only seats 4/5 (During the summer I suspect most of the time will be spent in the lovely area aroud the pool so this should not be a problem)
All the basic ammenities are there but some (such as the fridge with its very small (for 8) freezer compartment and the chipped crockery) are becoming a little dated.
This would seem to be an excellent Villa for dog lovers as without really trying I counted a dozen dogs roaming the surrounding farms. Conversely if you do not like dogs or indeed the noise they make this might not be your number one choice for a summer holiday.
Overall a quirky villa with a lovely host. An authentic taste of rural Portugal
Thank you very much for your staying!
it is a lovely villa and nice peoples recommended A++++++++++++++++++
we enjoyed living there and best weather plus great owners very helpful
THANK YOU WILL VISIT AGAIN .
All the information provided is accurated and it was very impresive when we arrived. The swimming pool is fantastic as well as the rest of the house. Very clean and with a very large list of kitchen gadgets.
The nearest village has several cheap restaurants (basics), and a quite good seafood restaurant. There is also a Supermarket for everything needed.
Home away from Home!!!!
Recently my family and I stayed at this Villa for 5 weeks. We had an amazing time. The house was very clean and organized. We had everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare meals. There were lots of extra blankets and towels for us to use as well. This Villa is not far from town where there are several grocery stores. The property that the villa was on was also very nice with fruit trees and vegetables. Ana the owner was also amazibg. She answered every email inquiry we had in a very timely manner and always made sure if there was anything we needed she would get for us. She also would send emails to check in to make sure we were comfortable or if needed anything. When we go to Portugal again this definitely will be the place we will be staying at. It felt like a home away from home and I would highly recommend for other to stay there as well.
Dear Teresa , thank you very much !
So great and enjoyable stay
We had a very great stay in Ana's house this summer. The villa is just gorgeous, especially for resting near the pool, cooking great BBQs, and relaxing. The house is huge and full of all the necessary basic stuff. The kids just loved the pool, while the parents enjoyed the relaxing place and area. Ana and her gardener are very helpfull and welcoming. We really do recommend this place for a relaxing and pleasant stay! We hope to return soon.i Just loved it ,also we met Ana was really nice meeting her ...
We are glad that you have enjoy it ! You are always wellcome!!
Obrigada , Ana
You won't be disappointed
We have stayed at various villas in Portugal but keep coming back to this one (I have now stayed at Ana’s villa 4 or 5 times), and would highly recommend it. It is easy to get to and in a good central location. Price is very good compared to the others I have stayed at. Plenty shops and train station close by with an excellent service allowing you to visit Lisbon and the other beautiful towns close by. The villa itself is very nice, clean and well maintained, Ana and her family are always very welcoming and helpful. The pictures don’t quite do justice to the large garden and pool/bbq area, which are great. You won’t be disappointed staying here.
Thank you very much, I hope to see you again!! Big kiss to both of you!
