About Ana Rodrigues

We are a very happy family, who live have lived in London for 24 years. My family constitutes myself (44 yrs old), my husband Tony (44) and my daughter Ana (28). We are true animal lovers and have numerous pets including cats, a dog and a cocktail. We all love to travel and meet new people from different cultures and walks of life. I describe myself as a very well mannered friendly individual, who enjoys making friends and learning about new and different cultures. I am very honest and loyal and strive to provide the best customer service to my guests.

Ana Rodrigues purchased this villa in 2006

Why Ana Rodrigues chose Lisbon District

I grew up in this same village and have always been in love with the area thus why I decided to purchase the villa there. It is a beautiful area providing great peacefulness but is nonetheless in range of many good amenities such as shops, cinemas, restaurants and bars. Additionally, it is only 30 minutes away from the capital Lisbon, where you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of this monumental city and again enjoy further amenities. It is also 30 minutes away from a range of many beautiful beaches either towards the south of Lisbon in Costa da Caparica or towards the West in Peniche. There are the opportunity to play golf in the town of Obidos and to do some horse riding a short 5 minutes walk away from the villa.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is large and the outside garden areas are extremely spacious and fenced providing privacy to guests. There is a private pool so that guests who simply want to relax and enjoy the peacefulness of the villa may do so without having to leave the premises. Because the pool is not very deep it is also great for the children who enjoy spending their time in the water. Pets are welcome, and the villa is very pet friendly. The villa has everything you may need including all kitchen appliances and household appliances. We also provide towels and bed clothes for the beds. There is possible access to the internet if requested. If you enjoy good food at reasonable prices we can recommend very good restaurants in the area which make delicious food.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We've stayed in many different villas in Portugal and we have to say that Ana's home is just the best! It feels like you have just moved into a home (rather than a cold, plain rented holiday place). It is absolutely ideal for our dogs who also settled in like home. A good base for visiting Lisbon and all the surrounding area with easy access to the main road and rail network." Sue & Andy Winstanley, September 2012

This is a perfect villa for families, situated in a private spot with a lovely pool area. The house is very well equipped, comfortable and spacious. On the edge of a small village although close to facilities and lots of interesting places within easy reach, including beautiful Lisbon. We loved the fact that we could experience real Portuguese life without being surrounded by tourists. Ana and Tony’s generous hospitality made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble to make our stay enjoyable. We had a wonderful holiday - highly recommended! Jayne

Notes on accommodation: Being a typical Portuguese house, the inside of the house remains very cool in the summer which is excellent giving the high temperatures of the spring summer season. A salamander stove maintains the house warm during the winter periods. Extremely suitable for children and pets, as house is all on ground level and property is closed off with fence and gate. There is plenty of open space to take walks and take in a bit of nature. The house is installed with an alarm system for total security of the property and guests belongings. You will also find a safe available at your disposal if you wish to be extra careful with your belongings. The house is extremely comfortable and cosy enabling guests to feel at home whilst on holiday.The person who will give you the keys when you arrive is Carlos, he is the caretaker who looks after the property when it is being rented to holidaymakers. He will be at the villa to greet you and and hand you the keys when you arrive. Outside: The outside area of the house is arranged with beautiful gardens of flowers and fruit trees surrounding the front and side of the house. There are vineyards extending the length of the property, past the gardens where we pick our own grapes to produce our own wine. Guests are able to pick their own fruit from the fruit trees at any time, and wine is also available for a reduced fee.The patio is fully tiled and stretches the whole length of the house, contains table and chairs for outside meals in wonderful sunny summer days. Plenty of space for children and pets to run around. There is plenty of parking space for 6 cars. We love the peace and tranquility of the place and like the fact that it is situated in a small village where life has continued the same for centuries. Where the friendly village people greet each other when passing and you can walk around the corner for a coffee or a glass of red wine. We hope our guests will enjoy the place and the atmosphere as much as we do. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and linen are included and we do offer a person who may clean the house every couple of days. No maid service. Other: Storage room in the kitchen where you may store anything. Ironing board and iron kept here.

Home away from Home!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Recently my family and I stayed at this Villa for 5 weeks. We had an amazing time. The house was very clean and organized. We had everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare meals. There were lots of extra blankets and towels for us to use as well. This Villa is not far from town where there are several grocery stores. The property that the villa was on was also very nice with fruit trees and vegetables. Ana the owner was also amazibg. She answered every email inquiry we had in a very timely manner and always made sure if there was anything we needed she would get for us. She also would send emails to check in to make sure we were comfortable or if needed anything. When we go to Portugal again this definitely will be the place we will be staying at. It felt like a home away from home and I would highly recommend for other to stay there as well.

So great and enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a very great stay in Ana's house this summer. The villa is just gorgeous, especially for resting near the pool, cooking great BBQs, and relaxing. The house is huge and full of all the necessary basic stuff. The kids just loved the pool, while the parents enjoyed the relaxing place and area. Ana and her gardener are very helpfull and welcoming. We really do recommend this place for a relaxing and pleasant stay! We hope to return soon.i Just loved it ,also we met Ana was really nice meeting her ...

You won't be disappointed

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at various villas in Portugal but keep coming back to this one (I have now stayed at Ana’s villa 4 or 5 times), and would highly recommend it. It is easy to get to and in a good central location. Price is very good compared to the others I have stayed at. Plenty shops and train station close by with an excellent service allowing you to visit Lisbon and the other beautiful towns close by. The villa itself is very nice, clean and well maintained, Ana and her family are always very welcoming and helpful. The pictures don’t quite do justice to the large garden and pool/bbq area, which are great. You won’t be disappointed staying here.

Very relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed at the house for 10 days and had a wonderful time. The three children aged 12, 10 and 6 especially enjoyed the pool. And jumped in and out all day long. Easy train ride to Lissabon and also fantastic surf beached only 40 minutes car ride away.

We all had a great time and hope to be back in the future.

Relaxing ,away from hustle and bustle

  • 5 of 5

Excellent facities, great outdoor eating areas with BBQ used regularly with steaks supplied by the butcher situated in the municapal market of Azambuja, and a pizza over all next to the pool. The villa is very comfortable and homely as it is used by the owner as well as being rented out.. Great communications with Ana the owner. Place was tidy and clean.

This was our second visit and our children decided to join us with their partners this year after we told them about it last year.- plenty of room for 6 adults with out tripping over each other. Lisbon zoo was a good day out for all great value and easy to reach by train from Azambuja.

Another excellent relaxing holiday - Thank you Ana.

Great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned home after a wonderful holiday at Ana's fabulous, well equiped villa with superb gardens and excellent pool.

As well as taking advantage of all the facilities the villa had to offer, we also enjoyed all the local area has to offer with visits to Lisbon and the beautiful seaside town of Ericeira.

What made our holiday really special was the personal touch we received from Ana and her family; they made us feel very welcome.

We will definitely return in the future.
