Lovely, big apartment in a great location and with a balcony accessible from both the lounge and bedroom overlooking the golden sandy beach of Praia de California. Apartment was very clean and well equipped with air conditioning, plenty of kitchen utensils, TV, internet, washing machine etc. The bedroom is nice and big with a walk in wardrobe and en-suite.
Location is not only great for the beach (literally less than a 20 second walk away), but also the numerous bars and restaurants in Sesimbra. Regina's special dish at her vegan cafe close to the apartment is lovely and i had it on several occasions for brunch (i am not a vegan). The apartment is on the 2nd floor and there is a bar / restaurant underneath on the ground floor. It could be heard from the apartment on a Friday or Saturday night, but not enough to prevent sleep. There was a very good duo act (guitar and keyboard) that played on Friday nights and they are well worth popping down for a drink and a listen.
You are spoilt for choice with lovely beaches along the coastline of the Arrabida nature park; Beach Creiro (Portinho Arrabida) was my favourite, along with Troia peninsula - the whole coast line of the peninsula is gorgeous white sand, overlooking the hills within the Arrabida nature park and because it is so expansive, it is beautifully peaceful and quiet - who would have thought such a simple thing as miles of white sand meeting the blue ocean could be so relaxing.
Ana and Lili, were very helpful and responded quickly if i ever had any questions. Thank you for helping make it a a great holiday!
P.S. if you have a car, parking is underneath the apartment complex behind a remote controlled door. You will have to collect a fob to operate the door from Lili or whoever when you arrive. If you drive along the promenade to the end, the door to the car park is on the sharp hairpin bend.
