"We just had to say thank you. What a fantastic place. Our kids just loved the pool and running around in the grounds. With the enclosed walls and fenced in pool we could relax in the peace of mind that nothing could happen to them. Just what a holiday should be. Thank you - we'll be booking next year shortly." Ann and James, Hampshire.

"Thank you very much for renting your beautiful villa to us. We loved the house and the garden made it extra special. It was wonderful to be right in the middle of a forest" Helena and Richard, London.

"We really had a wonderful time. the house was very pleasant, bigger than we imagined and nicely secluded. It was lovely, fresh and well equipped." Sara, Paris.

Lovely, quiet peaceful family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for nearly a month and would love to come back. The quiet surroundings, pool and enclosed gardens made it perfect for our 5 year old twins, and there was plenty of space for all. Charlie and Alison were always on call, friendly and available when we needed to speak to someone. (We needed a doctors appointment for our son one day).

Near to many beaches, water park, hyper markets and historic towns we weren't far from what we wanted to do if the weather was a bit cloudy. There's a file with plenty of ideas where to go. The majority of tourists are either Portuguese, Spanish or French which was nice to. Thank you to both of you, hope to see you next year

Great Family Villa

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the villa - in fact it was so good we have been 3 times! The villa and grounds are fantastic - lots of space and safe for the kids with the walled garden and fenced off pool area.

When we weren't playing in the pool or enjoying the bbq we explored the fantastic local beaches, enjoyed the history at Obidos and surrounding region and took a day trip into Lisbon for a bit of shopping and culture - and some great cakes :)

We loved the fact that the local area feels really Portugese not like one of the Costas full of Brits.

Great place to stay for families!

Beautiful Romantic Setting Amazing Pool

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I stayed in this villa for 10 days in September and had an amazing holiday.

The setting is simply perfect, very romantic getaway. Beautiful surroundings and loved starting every day with breakfast by the large pool.

The house was immaculate and included everything you would need. My husband and I always stay in villa's, not liking hotels and this is definitely one of the best we have stayed in very private, clean and like a home from home.

The surrounding area offers a nice beach and some good restaurants. We took a day trip to Lisbon which due to such quiet roads took no time to get to and I would highly recommend this.

I don't often write reviews but I was so impressed by the villa I decided to give credit, definitely somewhere we will revisit!

Looking forward to coming back

  • 5 of 5

We are looking for our holiday for next year and are thinking of staying here again. We have two families, each with 2 kids. The kids stayed together in the third bedroom - it works really well as a dormitory with the two singles and the bunk beds. There's plenty of seating inside and out and it's great to have no worries about the kids running around the completely private grounds, making as much noise as they like.

There's a great steak restaurant we found in Salir (about 10-15 min walk, or a couple of minutes in the car). Other great restaurants in San Martinho and up and down the coast.

A car is a necessity, but there's some lovely early morning runs to be had - about 10km round to the far end of the San Martinho bay and back.

Alison, who manages the villa is fantastic, knowledgeable and extremely helpful.

Wonderful holiday

  • 4 of 5

Lovely spacious villa (plenty of space for 2 families of 4) - with everything we could need for a week's holiday. We loved the secluded location, the BBQ and the warm pool - it was particularly good having the safe shallow kids part of the pool. The table tennis table was also a big hit with the kids!

The local beaches at Salir Do Porto and Sao Martinho are definitely worth a visit - very safe for children. Obidos and Sintra are also definitely worth seeing too.

I booked the villa following the previous reviews.

These we made a few years ago

The villa internally was fine clean, fully furnished etc apart from beds that kept falling apart!!

Externally it's tired

The pool decking is loose with screws sticking out in places

Are stay started with the owner meeting us saying the villa has a fly infestation due to dropping figs,

It was actually due to horses in the farm that is part of the villa now with people accessing it via the villa gates

These flys were the most irritating things we had ever come across, going in your ears and mouth instantly as you walked outside, great for my young children!!

The horses also brought more problems as day 2 we woke to find a 10" dead rat in the pool obviously drawn buy the stables within the villa

After this the pool was unusable :(

The only way we survived this hellhole was to go everyday to the local beaches

Which I must add are fantastic all along the coastline

Come to salir do Porto but please don't stay at
