Beautiful, spacious property, great for families/large groups
We had a wonderful time at this villa. Avani, the owner, was very welcoming and we especially appreciated the offers to stock the kitchen with starter groceries and to provide dinner for us on our first evening from their terrific Indian restaurant (at our expense of course). Avani and her staff were also quickly responsive to the few minor issues we had during our stay (a burned out light bulb, for example.) The grounds, the pool and the interior spaces exceeded our expectations and hopes. The property is somewhat isolated and a car is essential, but we found it pretty easy to get to the airport, Lisbon, the town of Sintra, and coastal towns and beaches. The villa was also a wonderful place to spend time when we were tired of being tourists or it was just too hot to sightsee. I would highly recommend this property to family groups or friends as a perfect base for seeing Sintra and Lisbon.

Un de nos plus agréables séjours au Portugal
5 étoiles ! Une splendide villa au milieu d'un parc verdoyant absolument magnifique, on se sent vraiment chez soi. La maison est une véritable maison de campagne, un vrai lieu de vacances où on se sent bien. Chacun y a son independence. La decoration est absolument magnifique, avec de belles pieces, c'est très personalisé. Le parc est tellement vaste que tout le monde peut y trouver la tranquillité et les repas sous la tonnelle végétale avec l'odeur des roses nous laissent un grand souvenir. Vraiment un superbe séjour. La villa est idéalement située, proche de Lisbonne où l'on peut se render en voiture, Sintra, les plages de l'océan Atlantique... Au bout de la rue il y un petit commerçant de proximité absolument charmant et prêt à ouvrir sa boutique rien que pour vous dépanner ! Avani est une hôte très prévenante, toujours à l'écoute et répondant à toutes vos questions très rapidement et efficacement. Nous recommandons vraiment cette villa pour votre séjour près de Lisbonne en famille ou entre amis. Je pense que nous reviendrons !
Une chose à savoir pour les personnes sensibles: les lignes haute tensions passent tout près de la maison mais ne nous ont absolument pas gene.
Memorable! To repeat again...
Our stay in your villa was just amazing!
There were so many great things to do, the warmed swimming pool, the terraces, the ping pong table and the breathtaking garden, just to enumerate some.
The location was also perfect for our planning, specially if you also want to visit sintra with its castles and palaces.
In a few words, it was a memorable journey and I should thank you for providing us such exceptional conditions for our 2 nights stay. Keep going!
Fantastic Host and Outdoor Space
From checkin to check out everything was smooth. The owner was helpful and booked us taxis on numerous occasions and arranged all.
All our queries were answered promptly, the outdoor space is great, relaxing and maintained well.
Nice rustic villa as expected. We also enjoyed the Indian meal provided from a restaurant at an additional option. Owner can arrange transfers from airport which is also nice, very accommodating.
The villa is located in a nice quiet area there is a shop nearby so basic amenities can be purchased quickly. Great stay!
The house is magnificient! The decoration is very nice, the garden very well maintained and equipped with a heated pool, babyfoot ! Perfect with friends or for a family stay with kids! Exactly like the pictures! I highly recommend!
