My wife and I and our two children of 14 & 15yrs stayed at this residence during February. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The house is nicely laid out with more than plenty of room for 6 people. Everything was in working order with place settings for probably 20 people. Even in February, the yard was immaculate, the pool spotless and everything was in it´s place. We had a car (which is needed), and we visited Sintra one day, the beaches another and Lisbon the third day. It was nice to return to our country cottage, stopping off at a Supermarket or fresh produce stall on the way home. We used the WIFI services for downloading a couple of movies on our IPAD, and the speed was real good, though it is a open, public access WIFI, and the temperament may change with more visitors in the area. Even in February, there was congestion in several of the pueblos and when summer comes, we imagine the whole Sintra coastal area would be packed. The house has a beautiful view and very quiet location. Rosa is a very nice hostess. This house was worth the money.
lIVING AND DINNING AREAS EXCELLENT, BEDROOMS GOOD, POOL AND GARDENS EXCELLENT. HOT WATER RATIONED AT TIMES
The house and the property were very nice (some of the bathrooms could be improved). The garden with the view were great when the weather was clear. The owner is a very charming lady and provided us with maps and directions. My only beef is with the reservation system that requires you to pay your security deposit in advance then fails to reimburse it in a tiimely fashion. (I'm still waiting and it's been more than a month).
We had a very good week at this very private villa. Mrs Bastos was extremely helpful, friendly and made us most welcome.
