About The Owner

I live in England with my husband and youngest son, we have three children altogether and really enjoy going to Portugal on holiday. We fell in love with the Arrabida Resort on the Blue Coast when we visited the region in 2008 and decided to purchase our beautiful Villa dos Sonhos. The Villa and Resort are like a home from home for us and we hope anyone visiting will feel the same, the Villa is very spacious and can take 2 families easily. We have a selection of DVD's for a movie evening and outside table and chairs on the patio to enjoy the barbeque and an evening glass of wine or cold beer.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2009

Why The Owner chose Costa Azul - Setubal area

The Arrabida Resort is wonderful, the modern architecture is amazing as you drive along looking at the different styles and colours of villas and apartments.

My husband was very proud to play on the opening day of the golf course August 22nd 2009. This region is perfect for families because its close to beaches and our pool is great with patio area and built in barbeque, golfing parties have excellent golf courses nearby and the Villa overlooks the 10th hole of the leisure golf course on this Resort, for the wine connoisseurs we have no less than 14 Vineyards in this area to enjoy and explore.

What makes this villa unique

We all love the Resort for different reasons, I love the surroundings and view from the villa plus our pool and barbeque is perfect for family holidays, its great for relaxing, my husband and sons are keen to play golf and we all love to walk around the golf course and enjoy a meal and glass of wine or beer at the 19th hole!. Its safe for children to play out and ride a bike, the garden and private swimming pool with loungers is wonderful for us all. We do have WiFi at the Villa for those who need to keep in touch with everything.

Lovely villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is beautifully presented with loads of space for everyone - most of the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and every room is beautifully decorated. The pool is a good size and there's a selection of loungers and a grass lawn area as well as a table and chairs for outside dining. The kitchen is really well equipped and there's a barbecue so you have everything you need if you wish to self-cater. Otherwise the resort clubhouse has a decent menu and there are plenty of restaurants locally. A car is necessary to get to the supermarkets and to make the most of the villa's location. We spent time in Sesimbra, Setubal, Azeitao, Lisbon and Troia and would highly recommend the dolphin watching in Setubal bay and trip on the ferry over to Troia. We drove to Coina and hopped on the train to Lisbon, which was a short ride and very easy given the tickets can be topped up and used for transport in the city. The owners are incredibly helpful throughout the booking process and we would highly recommend the villa. One down side is the golf course on the resort - it is very short and not in the best of condition so keen golfers may want to try out some of the alternative courses nearby (there are plenty).
