“fantasic view and quiet beach location”

person found this review helpful

We had such a great holiday. The apartment was beautiful and quiet with a spectacular view of the sea and coast. The sunsets were incredible and the location was excellent. In a lovely small village near to Sintra with excellent little shops, bars and market, it was 10-15 minutes away by car to Sintra and other beaches. After having a fantastic time exploring the nearby coast, Sintra and Cascais. We felt very privileged to be just 5 minutes from the most beautiful beach, which was much quieter than any of the others and the boys enjoyed the local homemade ice cream shop called ‘Dolomite’. A real gem of a location, the owners were lovely, very welcoming and helpful, we felt we had the best advice of what to do. Thank you very much for our time, we treasured it and couldn’t fault it at all.

“An unspoilt gem”
Reviewed 19 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This apartment, situated in an authentic Portuguese village just a few minutes' drive from a beautiful beach, provided us with all the amenities we could need and more. The west-facing terrace offered us ample opportunity to relax in the late September sunshine. We found an excellent local shop near the main square with fresh local produce and also enjoyed meals at a local restaurant "Sisuda" about 5 minutes' walk from the apartment.
The location was beautiful and only 20 minutes' drive from the wonderful national park at Sintra. The local area was so lovely we didn't need to explore further afield as much as expected.
Best of all for us was the warm welcome and hospitality provided by the qwner Mario. If there had been a problem (which there wasn't) we felt completely reassured that nothing would be too much trouble for our kind though unobtrusive host.

“A wonderful apartment, location, host and holiday”

This was he vacation were looking for. We were in a scenically gorgeous vista that was pleasing on they eyes-- imagine viewing the Atlantic from a large balcony-patio while overlooking some beautiful countryside! From the outset, our hosts Mario and Didi were peaches: from the informatively helpful instructions they gave on how to get to the charming, small town of Almoçageme (about twenty minutes by car from Sintra) , and to the apartment itself, to their equally instructive knowledge about the town and the general surrounding areas—where best to eat, what to drink, and how best to get to places—they were very special and welcoming hosts. They lived upstairs from where we stayed, and were always both accommodating but unobtrusive. The apartment itself is very pleasantly furnished and tastefully decorated, and it has equally tasteful aesthetic with subtle African art motifs. The apartment was also well furnished and attractively designed, with what was like another, outside room: a large porch-like patio big enough to have meals on, stretch out on a patio chaise-longue, sit and read, walk around if you wanted to, and/or barbecue if you so chose. It had two bedrooms, but we only used one, occasionally using one to work in. The kitchen had all the utensils that you could want and the living room having very good wi-fi and TV, as well a number of coffee table books and some books and maps on the local area.
Set in the delightful small town of Almoçageme where people are friendly and helpful. The food was wonderful. I have never had roasted chicken as good as here, and along with the frango no currasco, the fish from the market, as within nearly all of the restaurants, were amongst the best I have anywhere. Like the food, the wine was generally good and inexpensive, as were he restaurants and cafes. We never had a bad cup of coffee, indeed were spoiled here with it. Form the apartment and town, one is within walking distance from the beach, and a good work out too, as it was all up hill coming back. You could mix going to the beach with hiking, or just walking around.
Such was the peacefully, languidly, slow paced pleasant time that we had, we were reluctant and sad to leave. We would certainly like to go back, as for us it was the perfect location and perfect vacation.
