Guestbook comments from the owner

A group of us stayed at Villa Caeiros this summer in late August. The villa is 5 minutes drive from Ericiera and a few minutes walk from local shops and bars, so its location was convenient. The owner Paulo was exceptionally helpful and friendly. One couldn't ask for a better welcome. The Villa itself is beautiful, spacious, spotlessly clean, and modern with every convenience provided. The first thing that impressed us was the view down to the ocean. The gardens are very private. Outdoor games and pool toys etc were all provided, as was an industrial barbecue to cook the Sardines Paulo left in the freezer. All of the rooms are beautifully decorated and the bathrooms exceptional, the master suite has a jacuzzi and double shower/steamroom. The outdoor cinema and PS3 are great for keeping the children happy and quiet in the evenings. The kitchen was exceptionally well stocked with most basic ingredients provided, every utensil you could want was there. There are a plethera of supermarkets and small shops locally. The pool is great and we didn't need to heat it. The house while very modern and beautiful is also very child safe. Paulo provides wireless internet and the use of a laptop which is fantastic for sorting through your shots after a day of sightseeing in the area. There is no shortage of things to do in Ericiera, not least surfing and people watching on the beaches. The local restaurants were excellent, serving freshly caught fish and seafood. As always in Portugal restaurants welcome families and groups with children. Sintra and Mafra are definitely worth a visit. Lisbon is an hours bus ride or less in a car. We will hopefully return to Villa Caeiros and our excellent and friendly host Paulo.

Stunning villa. That can keep large parties occupied all day

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely villa , plenty to keep even the largest of parties occupied wheather it be sunning around the pool or using the facilities of the spa or games room or simply playing some of the board games , table tennis or just relaxing listening to the sound system,we as a party of 15 never felt crowded.both Mafra and ericeira were around a ten minute taxi ride and both nice towns to visit and have a meal etc , Ericeira also has very nice beach if that's what you want however the heated pool at the villa was fantastic for us ,only watch out is that taxi service is quite stretched and it can be a bit difficult to get a few if your going out in a large group, this is the only thing that took any shine off what is wonderful holiday , my understanding on speaking to the local taxi drivers is that it is the council who won't let any more taxis operate in the area that's a shame ,Mabey you could help push this one Paulo ? also happy to support

paulo the owner was always on hand and very quick to respond to any questions we may have had all in all a fantastic Villa with great facilities and views but be prepared to be organised if you wish to go further afield

Owner's Response: Hi John Thank you very much for choosing our villa and also for your kind review. I'll get more info about the limited taxis in the area. Alternatively our big groups of guests can always schedule in advance with our transfers company several trips on the mini bus with capacity for 20 people. This company also guarantees the transfers to the activities booked by our guests, with direct pick up in our villa. The weather was not always sunny during your stay but the investment we made in building the SPA in our gardens and heating our pool add quality time to our guests in any circumstances. :) Finally, thank you very much for taking good care of our villa and for leaving it in impeccable conditions! Kind regards to you and everyone in your party! Paulo

The perfect place to celebrate

  • 5 of 5

We came as a group of students to celebrate finishing school and we had a fantastic time at the villa. The property itself is beautiful, even better than shown on the pictures. Everything we needed was inside the villa and we have no complaints. The area around the villa is quiet and there are supermarkets and beaches a short drive away.

I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone looking for a fun and/or relaxing time.

Owner's Response: Hi Alex To be honest, I was a bit aprehensive to welcome a large group of 20 young students. You proved me wrong! You turned out to be a very polite and educated group. You respected our villa and left it in perfect conditions. Our door will always be open for you! Kind regards Paulo

Great stay, helpful host, very close to the quaint town of Ericeira

  • 5 of 5

I enrolled my kids in the surf school (surf riders) with the help of our host and they picked up the kids and dropped them off at the villa.

Everything worked and we had a great time!

We Stayed at the villa with a party of 16, the villa is better than described and Paulo the owner was amazing at planning and organizing the whole stay. Nothing was to much trouble for them and even organized a birthday cake to be in the fridge on arrival. Also Paulo sorted transportation for our whole stay and even recommendations for local restaurants not to mention a touching gift for my father.

The villa is better than in the pics and an amazing time was had by all.

Thanks again Paulo next time I will visit the villa with the family and leave my leprechaun costume in the wardrobe. If you ever plan a trip to Scotland my door is open to you and your family after your fantastic Portuguese hospitality.

Owner's Response: My dear friend David It was an honor to welcome you and your big family for such a special occasion. I mean, your father coming to Portugal again exactly 50 years after Celtic winning that final of 67 in our national stadium is truly amazing! I felt contagioused by the happiness you brought and touched by the love between you and your Father (in particular). We need more of that in this troubled world. Please feel free to visit us whenever you need a getaway. This is your home in Portugal! PS: I still smile when I think about that leprechaun costume. :) Cheers Paulo

A luxurious stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really had a perfect stay, celebrating a friends hen do with 9 ladies, but I also think the villa would be perfect for larger family parties.

We were given a lot of help and advice from Paulo the owner before and he met us there to give us a warm welcome and show us round.

The villa was first class, the facilities such as hot tub, pool, disco room were amazing. But equally lots of little things made our stay even better such as lots of fresh towels, well equipped kitchen, TV with DVD player. As well as high spec bathrooms, bedrooms which were spotlessly clean.

We used the brochure provided to book a boat trip and airport transfers. They are punctual, friendly and reasonably priced. the boat trip was a real highlight of the break.

Paulo recommend Tic Tacs in town for food, which was fantastic. We visited a couple of other restaurants who were also fantastic quality and great value.

We also were able to send Paulo a list of shopping and he arranged for it to be delivered which was very helpful when we first arrived so we could just enjoy our time.

I can't wait to visit again soon.

Fantastic experience in a beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

I was with 20 friends in this villa and our experience couldn't have been any better. The kitchen was fully stocked, there were local grocery stores near by that we could grab food, we arrived and it was really clean, there were beds prepared for everyone and Paulo (owner) was an absolutely amazing host. He organized Taxi's and helped us find fun activities to do in the area. The villa was modern and the perfect size with a beautiful view.

I would highly recommend this villa to anyone!

Thank you so much Paulo! We all had the best time :)
