Beautiful villa and pool in a quiet town close to some of the most beautiful castles, the dinosaur footprints are worth a visit. Rosa is a wonderful host and did everything in her power to make our stay amazing. If you are looking for a quiet relaxing holiday with lots of local cuisine I would highly recommend the Villa Sete - Cottage Sete Mares.
This is a beautiful villa in a lovely part of Portugal and we would highly recommend it for a holiday. Rosa the owner was there to greet us when we arrived and made us very welcome. In the villa we had a welcome bowl of fruit, a bottle of wine and a lot of basics provided so although we were too late for the shops we could have a drink and relax straightaway.
The villa was very clean and had everything that we needed for our stay. There were a lot of towels provided and these were changed mid week so we definitely didn't need to bring any.
The pool was lovely and as stated in the description this was private for our villa with plenty of sun loungers a table and chairs and umbrella.
We also had a patio area outside the villa which again had tables and chairs and an umbrella and this was the perfect spot for breakfast and lunch.
We did hire a car and although you could walk to the village the car was needed for exploring the area and for visiting the supermarket. The nearest large supermarket was in Colares which is only 5 mins away by car but there was also a Lidl in Sintra which was only 20 mins drive.
We visited many places and would recommend taking the tram to Sintra and visiting the palace in Sintra but pay for the bus up to the palace because it is a long uphill walk.
We tried a lot of restaurants and would recommend the Mateus in the village , which is good value and had craft beers and specialist Gins, and the restaurant at the end of Praia Grande beach, Bar Do Fundo, which had lovely food including seafood , nice desserts and an amazing view and sunset.
Very comfortable. Pool great for younger children. Beautiful garden and house had all amenities. Very friendly and helpful owner.
