perfect place to relax

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from ten days of total relaxation. Apartment very comfortable and well equipped and the garden and pool area first class. If you like peace and quiet and privacy this is the place to go. Couple of pleasant little restaurants in the village and lots more within easy distance We usually hire a car but this year decried to use public transport . Owners had a taxi organised for us at airport which was so handy compared to other years when we spent first hour battling with car hire companies over misinformation etc. The bus and train service was regular, timely and we were able to visit Lisbon, Sintra , Cascais and other small towns with no hassle .Multi trip tickets made this very economical. Beach was probably twenty minutes walk but you could also take bus if walking isn't appealing . I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this spot and would definitely returns.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I wanted somewhere to stay, that would give us peace and quiet and somewhere to really relax. This property delivers all of those requirements. It is very comfortable, clean and well maintained. It provided sufficient facilities that we needed for our choice of self catering. The village of Areia has at least six restaurants where you can find a good choice of Portuguese food at very reasonable prices, so eating out is easy. The white sandy beaches, a short walk away, are a wonderful place to relax in the sun. Though it is not advised that you swim here, the pool at the property makes up for this. It is perfect! However, the kite surfing, wind surfing and surfers provide great entertainment at Guincho beach. As well as walking, we used public transport to get around. Buses from the village into Cascais and the surrounding area, are frequent and not expensive. The same applies to the train service that we used to visit Lisbon. It was all so easy. The owners of the property made us feel very welcome and were very approachable. We are very grateful for the privacy they gave us and would certainly recommend this property to friends and family.

A superb holiday apartment

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this apartment for a week, after 4 days in Lisbon - the perfect place to chill out and relax. We have stayed in many holiday rentals over the years but never in one so well equipped and well stocked with basics - including enough groceries to keep us going. The pool and pool area were a delight, and the garden was beautiful. The owners made us feel very welcome, and although living in the same building we did not find this intrusive, we had our own entrance and garden area. The only reason I have not given the property 5 stars is because we prefer to use public transport rather than drive, and apart from the 5 or so restaurants in the village 5 mins away, it was a bus ride to Cascais and a supermarket. The holiday, however, was really enjoyable, and we could thoroughly recomment this property.
