Nice house, well looked after, and great pool. Weather was perfect, not too hot. The area was beautiful, many palaces and museums in the area, and access to Lisbon 40 mins away was very handy. On the downside the Atlantic beaches are pretty rough (except in Cascais / Estoril) and the water very chilly. Also the owners should point out that they live in the summer house, albeit quietly. This does affect value for money.

5/5 Quinta do mar, de: Alejandro Palomo, 11/Ago/2008he pasado una semana fantástica en esta casa. es, sencillamente, espectacular. La dueña es encantadora. Es, sin lugar a dudas, la mejor casa en la que he veraneado. La recomiendo absloutamente. Es una zona residencial muy bonita y tranquila, tal vez lo malo sea que Estoril y Cascais están a 20 kilómetros y la carretera es de muchas curvas
5/5 Vacaciones en familia, de: Mª JESUS HERNANDEZ, 02/Set/2008Hola, solamente decir que la casa era preciosa, comoda y muy bien situada, un jardin maravilloso en el que los niños jugaban y se bañaban en la piscina y que deciros de las vistas al mar.Rosa bastos que es la dueña es encantadora.Situada muy cerca de lisboa y sintra un lugar maravilloso. Gracias rosa por hacernos sentir como en nuestra casa.
5/5 Heerlijke locatie, de: um viajante, 19/Ago/2009Wij hebben genoten in dit fijne huis in nog een stukje authentiek Portugal. Het enige waar je rekening mee moet houden is dat er nogal eens zeemist kan zijn en dan duurt het even voordat de lucht echt blauw is bij het huis, omdat het zo dicht bij zee staat. De foto´s bedriegen niet. Er staan misschien wel net even wat meer huizen in de omgeving die nog gekocht moeten worden om te worden opgeknapt. Wij willen Rosa heel erg bedanken voor haar lieve ontvangst en gastvrijheid. Alles was Top!
5/5 really beautiful , de: A wonderful place to stay, 19/Jul/2009Last May we spend two weeks in this lovely accomodation with our family (two adults and two children age 4 and 2). We had a really beautiful time. The house is very comfortable and totally equiped (towels, childrenseat, childrenbed, etc.). The owner Rosa was incredible nice and careful. The town itself is nice and quit with excellent beaches in the environment. We had a hard time to say goodbye and when i see the pictures now I get a little 'homesick'. So well done Rosa hope to see you soon!
