What a wonderful Villa in the heart of the Countryside.
Casal do Alecrim is a clean, spacious 4 bedroom villa, which is well equipped, with everything you could need for your stay.
It has a private pool, which the kids played in everyday, although a little cold in April, it was well maintained and kept clean.
Set in the countryside, it has amazing views of the mountains, and a great place to relax after a days sightseeing.
We stayed in April which was a little cold in the evenings, so we lit the lovely log fire, which warmed the villa quickly. Also Plenty of blankets were available if we needed them.
This Villa is within easy reach of beaches, and Towns, although you would need a Car to get around easily.
We had a great Holiday in this part of Portugal, we would definately recommend this Villa to Family and friends, and hopefully we will return soon.
I stayed here with my girlfriend and two friends for two weeks this summer. We had never visited the Serra da Arrábida region before and were hoping for a quiet rural location within easy reach of the beach and town, so we were very happy with the choice we had made. Setubal is an easy drive and offers a selection of shops and restaurants and there are plenty of beautiful beaches within a short drive.
The spacious villa was clean, comfortable and traditional with all the amenities we could want. The pool was fantastic and there are plenty of areas around the house (inside and out) to relax, soak up the sun and enjoy the surroundings. There is plenty of wildlife around and although we didn't explore the natural park, I'm sure there would be lots of enjoyable walks and days out to be had for those wanting a more adventurous holiday. We did manage the 15 minute stroll down the road to Quinta de Alcube to sample their delicious wine (on more than one occasion!)
We wanted a very relaxing and lazy holiday and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. We would recommend this property to friends and family alike and would definitely return again the future. The property managers and owners were very helpful and hospitable and made our stay there all the more enjoyable.
Dit was de 3e keer dat wij via homeaway een huis hebben gehuurd. De eerste twee keer is dat heel goed bevallen, deze keer helemaal niet. Het huis is totaal niet geschikt voor 8 personen, er is geen tuin, alleen een veranda, bij het zwembad is geen greintje schaduw, de parasol was kapot (NB 1 parasol voor 8 personen), de bedden bewegen en kraken zodanig dat je er letterlijk van wakker ligt, de 2persoonsbedden zijn 1.40 breed, geen horren, geen zwembadhanddoeken, bedden niet opgemaakt, 1,5 badkamerhanddoek per persoon en geen idee wanneer we schone zouden krijgen, alles is oud en versleten, geen privacy (we hadden voor 10 dagen geboekt maar zijn na 1 dag vertrokken en het grootste deel van die dag was er op het terrein iemand aan het werk). Gelukkig hebben we een heel fijn ander huis in de buurt kunnen vinden!
Vraag een foto van de 2e badkamer voordat je boekt!
Oh ja, het uitzicht is fantastisch, dat dan weer wel ......
This house is not fit for 8 persons. When we arrived, only one bed was made for two persons (we booked and payed for 8). This bed was not fit for two persons, far too small and it was like sleeping in a boat. When we moved, the bed moved. Also the bed made terrible sounds! No chance of turning in your bed without waking up the rest of the family. Sleeping apart was not an option because there was not any linen for one of the other beds.
Also no possibilities to keep the insects out of the house and out of the bedroom!
There is no garden, just one terrace. Just like the rest, unfit for 8 persons. At the pool just two recliners and no shadow, not one tree!. Only one parasol, worn and torn, just like everything else. No pooltowels and no extra towels for the bathroom. Before booking make sure you ask a photo of the so called second bathroom, if you like to take a shower while sitting on the toilet you will be fine.
We were told everything could be fixed. But of course, going on a holiday we didn't want things fixed, we wanted everything nice and ready when we arrived.
Oh, and no privacy, we were there for a little more then 24 hours, half of the time the son of the owner was working on the grounds .....
We booked for 10 days and left the second day. We were very lucky to find something else. We had a great holiday in Quinta da Escudeira, close to Palmela (half an hour drive from Casa alecrim). This Quinta is everyting that casa alecrim is not! Paradise.
Mind you: the view is beautiful! Only two wooden chairs en two wooden recliners to enjoy it from. All te rest is plastic ........
Die Villa Alecrim ist ein sehr gut ausgestattetes Ferienhaus in einer schönen Lage im Arrabida-Naturpark. Mit dem Auto erreicht man in 5 min Azeitao, in 10 min Setubal, in 15 min den ersten Strand und in 45 min Lissabon. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Auch nach großer Tageshitze war es nachts im Haus angenehm kühl. Der Pool war das Highlight für die Kinder. Die Betreuung durch Dina ließ keine Wünsche offen. Die Eigentümer Antonio und Maria sind herzlich und zuvor kommend.
Der Internetempfang über das Smartphone bzw. Ipad ist eingeschränkt möglich.
Alles in allem ein sehr zu empfehlendes Ferienhaus.
Excellente location conforme aux descriptions sur le site d'Abritel! La villa et la piscine sont très propres. Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable. Les propriétaires sont très chaleureux, accueillants et dotés d'une extrême gentillesse! Nous recommanderions sans hésiter cette location à nos amis!
The Natural Park of Serra da Arrábida is a protected area due to its high value at biodiversity. Here you'll find a magnificent natural environment to discover, either by car, trekking or mountain biking. At the slope of the mountain, you'll find lovely small beaches of fine sand, no waves and no wind, where you can also do canoeing, pedal-boat, diving and, of course, relaxing! The beaches of Figueirinha, Creiro or Galapos can be reached by a 15min. driving; the friendly City of Setúbal stays at 8km and offers a wide range of high quality seafood and fish restaurants. The charming Village of Azeitão stays at 6km and offers you the best of its gastronomy: the “Torta de Azeitão” (kind of a cake), the Azeitão cheese and high quality wine. At 21km driving, you’ll find the picturesque fishing Village of Sesimbra. Lisbon stays at 41km.
Golf: There are several golf courses in the region, such as the ones of Palmela and Troia, which stays at 15km-30km.
