About Sharon D'Mello

I am married with two children, aged 27 and 20. I live in Kent in the UK.

For many years we have always taken villa holidays and often found them furnished without love or attention to detail. Very basic. I had always wanted to buy a property and work to provide everything I would want for a perfect holiday retreat.

9 years ago the journey began, I have enjoyed every minute. With my husband working, I was often alone, driving for the first time on the right, exploring the region, working with local builders and sourcing materials locally. A huge challenge without any Portuguese. The result nine years later, is a home I've fallen in love with, many Portuguese friends and a little Portuguese language (increasing all the time!).

Now I enjoy sharing this with guests who seem to love it too.

Sharon D'Mello purchased this villa in 2007

Why Sharon D'Mello chose Lisbon District

The location in a very typical small village in this beautiful rural area is what I love about this region and my dream was to be part of it. To experience the relaxed, laid back and very friendly way of life that is typical here. I wanted privacy but not to be isolated. Reguengo Pequeno, Reguengo means small and it is a small village of white washed old houses, the people are very friendly. Set on the edge of the village you have a few houses to the front but once inside the gates you have total privacy.

10 - 15 minutes to beaches, golf and Obidos.

It's only 45 minutes from Lisbon making an ideal base for an all year break. You have easy access to Sintra, Cascais, Fatima, Alcobaca and many more.

You could totally relax, overdose on culture or tour the vineyards, just perfect!

What makes this villa unique

I have totally refurbished Casa Rosa. My goal was to provide a home where you would find everything and more than you expect.

Basics like olive oil, vinegars and other items in the cupboard, ample crockery, not 6 of everything! Equip and furnish the house as I would my home not sparse as I have found other villas.

I arrange for fresh bread, just baked to be left on the gate when you wake. The fish man comes to the village each day with today's catch.

For peace of mind you have 24/7 emergency support from the management company for house issues and also if you need a doctor, dentist or hospital.

I provide the little extras often missing in villas, to make it some where that's perfect, that you want to come back to.

I believe I have achieved this but am always making it even better.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful break staying at Casa Rosa. The Villa is so perfect we didn't want to leave it at all. The area is beautiful and so much to do and see. We will definately be going back and wouldn't stay any where else. Thank you. Mr & Mrs Z (Kent).



Great holiday, great location. If you want peace and quiet yet easy access to fantastic beaches and excellent destinations then this is a great property. We are delighted to recommend Casa Rosa. Mr & Mrs C, Dublin

Wonderful property in beautiful location. Everything you could need - spotless

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic stay in a beautiful house - very well kept. Very quiet relaxing holiday. Swimming pool fantastic - enjoyed lazy mornings around it before heading off to one of the beautiful beaches none of which were too far away. Favourites were Praia Branca - lovely day on the beach, dinner in the Italian and a wander around for a delicious chocolate sundae or waffles with strawberries ! Baleal another must - particularly good on a windy day as more protected. Obidos is a fantastic afternoon - wander around the interior walls of the castle. Really a beautiful town. Day trip into Lisbon - very accessible and super city with so much to see for all.

Casa Rosa provided the perfect base for doing all of this - everything we needed was provided in the house. Information provided before and on arrival was super help and very efficient. Lovely evenings cooking dinner on the Bar B, enjoying the evening sun, sipping a glass of the local vino verde. Children enjoyed some down time playing pool. Overall a holiday thoroughly enjoyed by ALL the family in super house , rural setting, 10 mins drive from unspoilt beaches or endless choice of beaches within 30 min drive.

Very nice villa and surrounding area

  • 4 of 5

A very nice villa with all the facilities you and your family will need for a fantastic holiday. Sharon was very helpful before and throughout our holiday. There is lots to do around the region but a car is essential. The villa is set in a very quiet unspoilt place which we loved. Driving is essential to reach shops and restaurants. All in all we had a great time and will look to rebook in the future.

An amazing time at Casa Rosa ... you will love it

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful villa ... really lovely, comfortable and spacious villa. We loved the large open plan kitchen dining room that spills out internally into the living room. With it's high vaulted ceiling and roaring fire place it's a nice spot to chill-out and watch a movie. Alternatively you can open up the doors and eat outside and enjoy the rolling countryside (nice change from our usual urban surroundings). The gardens and the pool are immaculate. We spent the festive period with another couple and it was the ideal location to explore the coastline (btw Foz Do Arelho is a must) and the amazing city of Lisbon. So much to love about the area, and i wouldn't hesitate in recommending Casa Rosa .. villa, location and the owner are just awesome and made the whole process from booking, to arrival and of course the stay a very memorable stay. Looking forward to our next trip for sure.

5* luxury all the way!

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect, from the gift basket on arrival to the wonderful location, I just can't praise it enough, we stayed a week and wished we had booked longer it was so relaxing and clean, I contacted the owner before we arrived and every little request I asked for she did, no problem.

The beds were really comfy with good linens, the two bathrooms were great, the large lounge area which has doors leading to a terrace was perfect.

We loved our time here buying fresh fish and cooking it outside on the bbq, having a dip in the pool then relaxing on one of the many sun beds, the garden is beautiful and full of plants/flowers. We love this property and will return soon.

Location

Car: necessary

Coast/Beach:

You have the choice of five beaches within a 15 minute drive from the villa. All are lovely sandy beaches. Areia Branca is less than 15 minutes drive. Consolacao is 15 minutes drive, a few minutes walk from the beach is a pasteleria (bakery/coffee shop my favourite), everything is freshly baked at their bakery close by and delivered early morning and later in the afternoon . Bread and cakes are both wonderful. Baleal is 15 minutes and one of my favourite beaches, busy with surfers, a few cafes on the beach where you can have a drink or a snack. You can also walk across the beach to the small island of Baleal where again there is a café and spectacular views as you are surrounded by the sea. Aproximately 30 minutes drive is Foz do Areal and the Lagoon. This is a must, just stunning. Many water sports are also available on the lagoon.

Travel:

From Lisbon it is a 45 minute drive. The journey is simple on the A8 motorway. I will provide detailed directions from Lisbon to Casa Rosa with the booking pack. All the main car hire companies are based at the airport. I can help with information on car hire if you wish to email me. Airlines with direct flights: From London: BA, TAP & Easy jet. From: Dublin: Air Lingus.

The local area:

Casa Rosa is set in a small village. 5 minutes drive away you have a larger village, Ruegengo Grande where you have a chemists, pasteleria (coffee/cake shop), butchers and a small daily market in the morning selling fruit & veg and also a fishmonger who will clean and prepare your fish fresh from the local fishing town of Peniche that morning. There is also two shops where you can buy most groceries and fresh bread. 15 minutes drive to the following towns: Bombarral, Obidos, Lourinha, Peniche and day trips to Belenga Island. 30 minutes to the market town of Caldas da Rainha. This is the biggest town, with many shops, all the banks and a daily market in the square. It is under 1 hour to Lisbon and the following are all close enough for a day trip. Sintra, Estoril, Coimbra. You also have Fatima the Holy shrine approximately one hours drive north.

Further Details:

Casa Rosa, although set in in peaceful village in the middle of beautiful countryside, you are not isolated and you do have easy access to many towns within a 15 minute drive. Bomborral has several supermarkets and many banks. It is also good for eating out with several restaurants one being my favourite Piri Piri. Bombarral also has two vineyards offering tours and wine tastings and is famous for the wine festival in July each year. Lourinha is the other nearest major town which is famous for its Dinosaur museum as Lourinha and also the village where the villa is are famous for the discovery of dinosaur bones and fossils. The medieval walled town of Obidos is again 15 minutes drive. This is a must to visit with its narrow cobbled streets lined with white washed houses draped with bougainvillea and trailing geraniums there are many restaurants and small bars, great early evening when the place comes to life in the summer. The shops are local crafts and gifts. Peniche, It is very much an old-style fishing town. Every evening the fishing boats leave harbour and return to port during the early morning with their catches of Sea Bream, Sole, Halibut and of course, sardines. The catches are on sale that day in the big covered market in the centre of town and in the many fish restaurants throughout the town. You can book fishing trips and day trips to the Berlenga Islands in the harbour. 30 minutes drive from the villa is the market town of Caldas da Rainha, and also Foz do Arelho with the beautiful beach and lagoon. Casa Rosa is in the perfect location to discover everything this region has to offer.

You can enjoy all water sports with schools available near Area Branca, Peniche, Baleal and at the Foz lagoon, you also have two major go-carting tracks within a 15 minute drive, many first class golf courses are availble locally and there is an activity center offering microlite trips over the lagoon, horse riding for the more experienced rider and also bike hire. If you want an active holiday, a relaxing break or a cultural experience, then this is the perfect base for a wonderful holiday. An information file with details of local activities, beaches, places to eat and all other information is available at the villa.
