About Emma Sweeney

We bought this property as a home from home in this beautiful part of Portugal 10 years ago. I was still pregnant with my third child then. We have had some great holidays down here at various times of the year. In the summer enjoying the pool and the beach and in the winter for New Year, when there are fireworks in the bay. We still visit every year and enjoy the lovely relaxing atmosphere and restaurants. When your children are driving you mad with watching tv and playing Playsation a holiday here takes it all back to basics. Collecting logs for the fire, playing in the sea, enjoying the sunshine and gorgeous surrounding towns , card games in the evening or special family meals out. It's very special.

Emma Sweeney purchased this villa in 2006

Why Emma Sweeney chose São Martinho do Porto

The property is situated in a cul d sac, so is very safe and our children play with the local children. Portuguese families are extremely friendly and make you feel so welcome. The property has its own little self contained bedroom/ bathroom downstairs which is great for family members who like a little privacy and has excellent wheelchair access. The garden is fully enclosed so great for toddlers and the swimming pool is a special luxury in the summer. We have UK TV Channels.

What makes this villa unique

You are within easy access to all the local towns. You can drive to Fatima, Obidos, Alcobaca and Caldas. Lisbon is just over an hour away and well worth a visit. You can use it as a base to discover a beautiful part of Portugal or just use the villa to relax, pour a glass of wine and enjoy the peace. We Love it!!!

Perfect place for large families, quiet location but not too distant from town

  • 5 of 5

This 4 bed villa met our needs perfectly. Plenty of space for our family of 8 covering 3 generations with room to spare. Located just 5 mins drive from the town, even less to the nearest supermarket. While some may prefer to stay in a place closer to the town/beach, this place was much better value than a similar sized villa/apartment with more than enough cash to spare to cover the cost of 2 hire cars, motorway tolls and fuel. This gave us the opportunity to easily travel and explore beyond Sao Martinho, all roads were quiet and parking was free.

The weather in late October could not have been better, sunny every day 24 degrees at the start of the week rising to 30 degrees on the last day. Emma did warn us that the pool would be a little chilly, which it was, but it was so hot in the sun trap of a back garden that we were actually pleased to be able to jump in the pool and cool off! I would recommend this villa to family and friends and would definitely return again.

Two really minor criticisms of the villa facilities; the oven was awkward to use with there only being a dished tray rather than wire racks and this was exacerbated by there being no oven gloves provided. Otherwise, absolutely perfect accommodation that made for a fantastic family holiday.

Excellent villa for family of 6

  • 5 of 5

Layout of villa was excellent with 3 bedrooms upstairs and one double with bathroom on ground floor. Suited our group of 6 with parents, grandparents and two very young children. Lots of labour saving devices and all rooms were well decorated and clean. Outside the pool and barbecue are perfect and in a quiet and safe environment. Villa within easy reach of many great beaches with safe bathing and also close to places and towns of historical interest. Fantastic local supermarket and easy to access bus to Lisbon for a day in capital. Emma, owner, was extremely helpful at all times and was extremely patient with quick responses toy many questions. My only caution is to check nature of internet access. We flew to porto because it was cheaper and needs two and half hours drive as opposed to one and half hours from Lisbon. Driving was easy since very little traffic on motorways. We used economycarhire for car rental and no excess made life easy. Certainly a villa we would recommend and a perfect base for this quiet and interesting region.

Desgaste do uso

  • 2 of 5

A casa acusa já o seu desgaste, o proprietário faz se cobrar pelo mesmo. Acendemos a lareira/ churrasqueira com o calor um dos tijolos soltou se e foi nos cobrado o concerto, 100 €.A cozinha não está equipada para as pessoas que diz que aloja. Só está preparada para 6 pessoas. De resto zona tranquila e sossegada. De lamentar a cobrança de custos pelo desgaste.

As nossas espectativa em relação à casa não foi bem aquilo que esperávamos. Ficamos agradados com a casa e com o espaço envolvente. No entanto as condições de higiene e limpeza não estavam nas melhores condições, nomeadamente lençóis e atoalhados.

Para além disso a cozinha não dispunha de loiça suficiente para todos os hóspedes.

Sao Martinho do Porto is a very charming little bay which is excellent for families and safe for swimming. It is very unspoilt and a very popular with the Portuguese for their summer vacation. There are excellent fish restaurants surrounding the bay This property is only an hours drive from Lisbon so you can experience a day in the city with its various shopping malls, Seaworld for the children and numerous sites of historical interest. The beautiful walled city of Obidos is within 10 miles and the Grutas de Mira de Aire , the largest caves in Europe are worth a visit. Our villa is new and in a quiet location outside the town of Sao Martinho. It has a private pool and BBQ area. Ample secure gardens for children and south facing so it gets maximum sunshine.
