About the property

Great family property sleeps up to 5/6 with pool or 10min drive to nearest beach

This is a unique & tranquil open plan property surrounded by pretty country hills and the sea in the horizon. This 2 bedroom & 2 bathroom property with outdoor pool is located in the quiet village of Alvarinhos. The house has been refurbished, it has a newly fitted kitchen equipped with all the necessary modern appliances. A large BBQ & bread making/pizza oven area are part of this property. Guests can enjoy modern cable TV network, DVD player, wireless internet, table football and ping pong table. Bicycles may also be made available upon request to the owner. The home has wonderful maintained gardens and also a large size outdoor pool with sufficient sun beds for all guests. The owners live on the top property and do not make use of the pool area when guests are booked.

The beaches are located roughly 10mins by car. You may find the beaches of Foz do Lizandro, Praia de São Julião and a host of other great places to enjoy great water sports along this coastline and just a few more minutes drive away.

Alvarinhos is a quiet village where you can find a little of everything. In this rural area you can find a supermarket, butcher, local grocery shop and local farmers selling their produce on the road side. Antiques shops and local restaurants and cafes are also available.

Ericeira is located about a 10 min drive from the property. It is often called the Mecca of Surf and it has become one of the most important surfing towns in Europe. However it has managed to keep it's charm and it continues to be a fisherman’s, a center of commerce and a gastronomic celebrity due to its fresh fish and shellfish.

The beaches, known for its clean waters and rich mineral salts provide all the comfort for a pleasant day at the Atlantic Ocean. Beach bars with public toilet and showers, sunshade rental, lifeguards and access for disabled are some of the facilities on offer.

For food lovers and adventurers you must try some fresh fish and seafood dishes specialties typical of the Ericeira area such as 'sopa de cabozes' (crab, whiting-pout and mussel soup), char coaled catch of the day - Caldeirada (a rich fish, shrimps and mussels stew), 'Arroz de Marisco' (crabs, lobster and clams rice stew). If you are not that adventurous you will also find a great variety of meat dishes, pizza,hamburgers, and so on.

After dinner enjoy a walk around the town center and stop by for a drink in one of the many bars on offer. Nightlife goes on until early morning hours. For the ones longing for a quiet night by the pool with a drink and a good book, the property is just 10 min away.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Staying at property 1009329 was a great pleasure for our family! The bungalow is lovingly furnished and has a lot of opportunities, especially for children. The kitchen is brand new and you can find everything you need in it. Although the owners live in the same house on the above floor, they never use the pool area and during the daytime they are always gone so you can relax at the pool by yourself. The owners are extremely hospitably and nice - we often got Portuguese cakes or cookies from them. Everything was clean and we did not have anything to complain about. The whole estate is generous and is totally worth visiting.

Really idyllic and empty beaches are close by and there are a lot of possibilities for sightseeing in the area (Mafra castle must be seen!). Unfortunately most Portuguese do not speak English or Spanish or any other language but Portuguese. It's absolutely recommendable and we are looking forward to spending our next summer at property 1009329 again.

Peace and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

Great property - clean tidy and as described. The owner was extremely helpful

The property is no more than 30 mins from most of the sights but a car is essential as there is nothing that can be considered walking distance from the property

Only down side is that it only has 2 double beds which is not ideal with older children

Recommend Restaurante Ti Matilde at the north end of Ericeira it is a little out of town but always seems to be busy

The perfect place for holidays - a 5star rental

  • 5 of 5

We spent some absolutly fantastic days in this house - everything was perfect!!

The warm welcome of the owner, the spacious living and the heated pool....Amazing!

The property was clean and we found everything listed in the description. The owners are really great - coming with wine, homemade cakes, fresh eggs and a lot of good ideas what to do in the surroundings, We had been so fine in the house that we spent more time here than visiting and the flat was spacious enough that everybody could find a place for being alone sometimes.

The pool was heated by solar cells and cleaned with salt - and large enough to swim all the time and therefore, we didn't go often to the seaside!

The house was absolutly calme and nobody disturbed us - the ideal place to do a break when you're living in a big city

Sintra or Mafra are close with a lot of restaurants or supermarkets and other tourist attractions. A car is needed for visiting the area. And even Lisbon is not far away for a day trip.

Hope that our comments will be helpful - we loved that place and can only recommand to go there

For sure we will come back!

Relax

  • 5 of 5

A truly lovely spot. Right at the end of a dead end road, piece and quite is guaranteed. The garden is beautiful, large, with tons of flowers and nice trees. The house is huge, especially the living room. It has room enough to table tennis and to play table football. Besides, it has comfortbale couches and fauteuils to read, watch tv (if you come to it) and relax. Kitchen is roomy and has everything one needs for cooking and dining. The bedrooms are a okay, both have double beds. The swimming pool is clean and warm and it is only 3 steps from the glass sliding doors. Bathroom is at the ground floor with double shower and toilets. The location of this house is perfect: at only 40 minutes by car from Lisbon, half an hour from Cascais and 20 minutes from Sintra to the south and Ericeira to the north, it has opportunities enough to visit the surroudings. The coast is at 10 minutes by car: lovely beaches and sea. Overall, we had a truly wonderful, sunny stay here! This place has a lovely feel to it and the owner and his family is very very kind.

Un séjour idyllique...

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour extraordinaire! L'accueil était absolument chaleureux et les propriétaires situés au premier étage aux petits soins... La villa est absolument magnifique et immense, et nous avons pu profiter d'une piscine chauffée en famille... Les propriétaires se font discrets, et se rendent absolument disponibles à la moindre question. A notre arrivée, nous avons aussi pu goûter à ce fameux gâteau au chocolat, un vrai délice.... La villa se situe dans un endroit vraiment calme, aucun bruit, une vue splendide, le cadre idéal pour des vacances reposantes.

Située tout de même proche des routes menant aux plages, à Lisbonne et tout les autres villes telles que Sintra, à visiter sans modération.

On garde de fabuleux souvenirs de ce séjour merveilleux, et nous y reviendrons, c'est certain !

Very nice place to enjoy with your family !

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet place to spend one week holiday near Lisbon and close to the sea with a garden to enjoy with our child ! Definitely, it was the right place to be. The house is absolutely gigantic with a lot of games for children and parents (babyfoot, ping pong, swimming pool, bicycles). The place is quiet and only a few kilometers from the sea with splendid views.

Lisbon is easy to reach by train from Sintra and many other nice sites are not too far.

Last but not least, the family who lives on the first floor is very friendly and helpful and also discrete. We even had cakes when we arrived and a chocolate cake made by their children during our stay ! Miam miam ! They lend us a GPS for our vehicle to orientate easily in the region

Well, to summarize, this is very nice place to enjoy with your family ! We recommend it warmly and come back here next time we'll come to Lisbon.
