A great base for exploring the area
A very bright and spacious house; the well tended back garden is south facing so has sun most of the day making it perfect for swimming or just lounging by the pool. A very relaxing place with restaurants and a market only a few minutes drive away. It is easily reached by car from Lisbon airport in about an hour. A car is essential but the location is convenient for many attractions in the area - Obidos, Alcobaca etc as well as the beaches - Sao Martinho only a few minutes drive and Foz de Arelho about 30 minutes away. The beach at Sao Martinho is lovely and perfect for children - and adults who are not surfers!
A wonderful family home!
This was a fantastic base for our stay, in a beautiful part of Portugal. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and their welcome instructions were so informative. The house is immaculate, extremely comfortable and spacious, with plenty of room for eight people. The house is set in an almost silent residential cul-de-sac, away from the bustle of the town centre. You certainly need a car to make the most of your stay here; but that is more than made up for by the home-away-from-home feel of this gorgeous property. We can't recommend it enough and only wish it was our own! Thank you for a lovely stay!
A fantastic 'home away from home'
My family and I have recently returned from a two week stay and it is safe to say, we all have major cases of the holiday blues!The villa was wonderful, comfortable and well equipped for the 6 adults and one child who stayed there. The private pool was an added bonus and the garden gave us all plenty of space to relax and enjoy the sunshine. The villa is located in a great spot for exploring the area but a hire car is essential if you want to get the best from the region. The information booklet provided in the villa was extremely helpful in recommending trips and local restaurants. Sao Martinho is incredibly picturesque and provided a stunning backdrop to the many delicious bars and restaurants. We all had a great holiday and would highly recommend this villa.
We have just got back from a week at this villa, we had a great time and really enjoyed ourselves. A car is essential to see the sites but the beach nearby is lovely, very clean and lots of bars/restaurants on the coast. We enjoyed a meal in the restaurant literally 1 minute walk from the villa, it was traditional Portuguese and great value for money. The villa had everything you need for a home away from home and our 1 and 3 year olds enjoyed the pool. We would definitely like the stay here again.
The villa was perfect
Positioned well as a base to visit the silver coast
The grandchildren loved the garden and pool (although too clod for the adults)
There is everything you could possibly need for a fantastic holiday
We would definitely return
Excellent property & location
We enjoyed a lovely time in Sao Martino, the villa superb, you will get more than you expect. spacious, clean, fantastic location, near shops, little towns, supermarkets, sea, beautiful beaches all around the area. all the little towns around are worthy to visit. do not miss going to the flee market at Nazare on fridays, women there dress in their own costume (called the 7 veils). Unforgetable visit to the costal towns, all full with character, lots of handicrafts.
There are several caves to visit , really amazing and the fares extremely cheap, included tourist guide.
WE recommend to visit the sanctuary in FAtima, about 1 hour driving, everything is free and is a fantastic place to visit, here you can also find one of the biggest caves in europe, great handicraft shop and museum perfect for all ages.
do not miss the opportunity to visit the silver coast everything is new and beautiful.
From the Owner
“We purchased our villa after staying in Sao Martinho do Porto with our best friends, we just fell in love with this beautiful area. Just 45 minutes from Lisbon airport Sao Martinho has everything we need for our three young children, just like being at home but with sun, a pool and the beach! We can relax while our children have great fun, and they are just as happy playing in our pool as going out, and no matter how may times we return we always find something new to do or see. We just love it here!”
