5 based on 3 holidaymaker reviews
The villa is just what we were looking for, everything was so clean and tidy. The spaciousness was great, the master bedroom was so comfortable. The kids loved the pool which was used every day, we also walked loads so have come home a few pounds lighter. We really hope to book again and would definitely recommend. The Meyer Family.
Lovely villa peaceful location
We spent two weeks In this lovely clean and well furnished villa with everything we needed.Close to Salir beach and a lovely walk round the bay to Sao Martinho.Salir has bars and restaurants all in walking distance from villa tried most and enjoyed them all.Gill the owner was very helpful nothing too much trouble. Travelling around we visited Tomar,Alcobaca and Sintra all worth a visit. We would recommend this villa and hope to visit again.
Tasteful well equipped villa
This was a lovely villa with everything we needed. We enjoyed having our breakfast on the balcony with a view of Sao Martinho Bay - there was some building going on opposite whilst we were there but it is nearly finished and wasn't intrusive at all. Gill was very helpful and provided lots of information. Salir was peaceful but had bars and restaurants in walking distance from the villa. Lots of interesting places to visit within reasonable driving distance - Obidos is a must see. The River Restaurant/Bar is definitely worth a visit - the owner was very welcoming and the food was very good. They also have live music on a Friday and Saturday - we went on a Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed the music and had a great evening. We would definitely recommend this villa and hope to visit again in the near future.
