About Villa 'Vista do Mar'

Villa Vista Do Mar has been a family owned Villa since it was built in 2009.

Helin and Tommy are retired and live in West Yorkshire U.K.

Helin and Tommy and family spend at least a month at the Villa each year and take a personal interest in the Villa. This year we upgraded the lounge furniture, mattresses and master bedroom curtains, and also had the new Churesquerra BBQ built in at the Pool area .

Villa 'Vista do Mar' purchased this villa in 2009

Why Villa 'Vista do Mar' chose Municipality of Lourinhã

Our local Agent Fernando (Of Villa Luz Estates in Foz de Ahrelo ) has been looking after the Villa and since 2009. Fernando knows the local area and is always ready to assist our guests.

What makes this villa unique

The Sunsets are spectacular in the evenings, each evening being different from the one before. The

The peaceful location, yet so close to beautiful beaches and amenities, make our Villa an idea holiday location for couples and families.

Great Vila, very clean and modern

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to leave a review on this lovely Vila, had a great holiday (it was a while ago now) the location of the vila was perfect, very nice and quiet for evenings having drinks and BBQ's. Not far from bigger areas for nights out.

We were very well looked after and it was a very easy process booking the hioliday. We were even met at the local town to guide us to the vila.

I would recommend anyone who likes a relaxing chilled out break with trips to the local beach for surfing or some local historic towns for a bit of tourism.

Le beau temps n'était pas au rendez-vous...

  • 3 of 5

Très bon accueil de Fernando et aide appréciée au cours du séjour.

Malheureusement piscine posant qqe problèmes de bruit et comme non-chauffée, vu un temps assez froid, n'a pu être utilisée durant tout le séjour...

Endroit calme à part le chien du voisin d'en face...

Owner's Response: Dear Phillipe Thank you for taking the time to write a review following your recent holiday. The pool has a solar cover which helps retain heat but unfortunately there is no heating itself and we are sorry the water was too cold for you to swim during your stay. We have noted your comments and are sorry that a dog was barking. We thank you for your positive comments and we will pass these onto our Agent Fernando.kind regards Helin Vista Do Mar .
