Carlos Burcio purchased this Villa in 2017
Why Carlos Burcio chose Municipality of Lourinhã
I love this property mainly because of its location. Staying in the living room or even from at the Suite and look to outside ... relax in a comfortable and peaceful location and look over the window to the ocean sea ... Be out there by the pool and listen to the sound of the birds... Be with the kids and see them playing at the pool... Going out and walk a little...

Super location in stunning villa with ocean views
We loved the proximity to local restaurants which we walked to each night. The villa was immaculate and well equipped with beautiful views of the ocean. We used it as a base to explore the region and found Carlos to be extremely helpful.
I'm glad to read such good comments. Thank you.
It's great to have guests like you as well.
You are always welcome
Beautiful property. Great location
We stayed for 9 nights. The property is really nice and spacious. It is walking distance to the beach with lots of daily activities and nightlife. There was an issue with the pool pump and Carlos fixed it promptly. Overall excellent property and management.
Dear Paul, Thank you so much for you coments and for your cooperation.
It is a pleasure having guests like your family. You are always welcome.
We wish you all the best!!!
It was the perfect villa, well equipped, extremely clean with great views and loads of space. The owners made us very welcome. Our stay couldn't have been better. 5 Star+.
Very quiet area, easy walk to restaurants and beaches and just a short drive to amenities.
Would certainly recommend it and we would definitely like to go back.
Thank you very much for the comments about the house. The guests like you contribute to maintain and adapt the space, so that I can receive people so fantastic ...
I wish to see you again in one of our houses very soon.
Beautiful, well kept property with excellent facilities
The photographs don't really do the villa justice. It was spacious, light and airy as well as comfortable. It was very well equipped and everything functioned well. Carlos was very welcoming, and on hand if required. The villa is located on a hill 10 minutes walk from the main centre of Praia Da Areia Branca, and forms part of an area of development comprising high quality holiday homes and villas, which even in August felt very peaceful and quiet. Some of the plots in the local area were still under construction, but this did not impinge on our enjoyment of the property.
Praia da Areia Branca itself has all the amenities, bars and restaurants that you would expect from a seaside location, generally of a high quality, and the village centre has a relaxed vibe which reflected the surfing schools which are locally based. Most of the general holiday makers and property owners appeared to be Portuguese and it felt like this helped to ensure the quality and value of the local restaurants, cafes and bakeries were better than you might find in more non-Portuguese dominated resorts. If you drink tea though, take your preferred English tea bags!
We were a family of four with two older teenage boys and one girlfriend in tow, and all enjoyed the villa, and the freedom that it's close proximity to the local village provided. The teenagers managed a day out in Lisbon using the local bus service, as well as one to Peniche/Berlenga Islands. We also had a day out in Obidos, and managed a trip to the very local Go Kart track. Equally if you want to be lazy, the villa and swimming pool area is ideal for relaxing, and the local beach is both clean and supervised. The pool table in the basement area was also much appreciated. We would say a car was not absolutely essential, but recommended if you want a few days out, or like to have more food shopping options than the local mini-mart provides.
Overall we had a great holiday and would highly recommend the property.
Many thanks for such pleasant comments.
I really enjoyed having you here and I invite you to come back soon...
I wish you a return to work, full of energy...
Beautiful house and location
This is a very beautiful house from top to bottom. It has absolutely everything you could wish for to a very high speck. We had a lovely time playing in the pool, enjoying the view,playing pool in the basement and using the house as a great base to explore the immediate village and surrounding area. We particularly enjoyed the Foz restaurant, Sintra and Obidos.
Carlos is a great host and greeted us warmly and was supportive of us in any issues we raised during our stay.
I'm glad to read such good comments. Thank you. It's great to have guests like you as well. You are always welcome !
Kind regards, Carlos
Outstanding place for relaxing holiday
Casas da Arriba is a beautiful well functioning villa close to a nice small village. And a number of interesting historical towns are nearby for day trips. On top of everything Carlos the owner is extremely nice and helpful person. We had an enjoyable week in Areia Brance and can warmly recommend this place. Family Toivonen (Finland)
