Stayed Wednesday 01 October 2014 with Family
We loved this property and have no negatives except a very minor one which is the pillows are awful, filled with toy stuffing or kapoc! The house was spotless, spacious and really well equipped and the kitchen had everything you would need to cook up a feast - plus a barbecue The pool is lovely though not big and quite deep at the shallow end for children but has lovely un-chlorinated water My only negative about the facilities is the pillows! Awful Kapoc filled - hopefully they can be upgraded! The village is great and has an excellent mini market shop plus a lovely butcher (who speaks perfect English) and several restaurants The owner was lovely, very relaxed and helpful and lives only a few minutes away The sea is a twenty minute walk / few mins drive down a steep hill but the beach there is wonderful and theres a very good cafe on the sea front Almocagene seems to be twenty minutes from everywhere you might want to visit eg Sintra and Cascais and only forty minutes from Lisbon and the airport but once in the house its tempting not to do too much and enjoy the peace and quiet (though sometimes the village dogs did have a barking fest at night!) And the views of the sea and the horizon from the terraces are just amazing

this is a lovely property in a very original portuguese village. which was very cheap to purchase your every day needs. we went in may and the swimming pool was not heated so a bit on the chilly side. the owner lilia is an extremely nice person and was very helpful and lived close by i would go back to this property ,

The property was exceptionally clean, spacious and private. There was a group of 8 girls who came here for a week of relaxing. And that is exactly what we did. The view was stunning from the balcony looking over to the ocean. The village itself is very small and quiet but lovely and the locals were very friendly. If you are looking for a bit more nightlife then Cascais is the place to go. The landlady was lovely, very helpful. The only thing I would say is that the beach is a bit more than 500m away, more like a 25 min walk downhill which makes it a struggle coming back up in the heat but worth the visit. I would recommend renting a car if staying here though buses do run and are usually on time. The villa was huge, clean and lovely. Would defo recommend. Thank you!
