This beautiful house is impecably presented and managed by host Mafalda and housekeeper Valentina.
The gardens are a haven of peace and tranquility. There is a lovely pool and many a shady spot to relax, read or just contemplate life.
Communication with Mafalda was a joy and we finished our week wishing it had been two!
We had a wonderful week in this villa which is something quite special. We were 2 families totalling 9 people and the villa was huge and easily big enough to accommodate us all. The gardens are beautiful and the best maintained I have ever seen in a rental property. They are also huge and perfect for hide and seek. The pool was lovely and very well used-the children appreciated the various inflatables and pool toys. We found everything we needed in the 2 kitchens. Even with the hot August temperatures it was lovely and cool inside the villa and with the shutters we had a comfortable night's sleep every night. Mafalda kindly put mosquito nets around all the beds so no bites for us. There isn't much within walking distance of the villa so a car is necessary, however it is a very short drive to a choice of supermarkets and about a 15 minute drive to Sintra. We are hoping to return to this villa in the future as it is truly amazing. Mafalda is a wonderful host and she was quick to respond throughout the booking process and during our stay. Thank you Mafalda.
We were 8 adults and enjoyed the place very much. The Kitchen(s) are extremely well equipped , great for staying in and cooking.The grounds and gardens are extremely well kept , the place very clean and spacious.
Everything was well above expectations.
In addition, nothing is too far away. Lots of sightseeing all around.
We highly recommend it for a group.

Starting off with Mafalda, who is an awesome host. She is very accomodating, very nice, warm and welcoming. The house is enchanting with a beautiful garden, chickens, and lemon trees. It is close to many places of interest like Sintra, Lisbon, and also a 2 hour drive to Coimbra. It is the perfect place to vacation and relax. The only problem is you might not want to go anywhere and just chill in the house.

We were a family group of 7 adults. The property was spacious, well equiped and very comfortable. We were lucky with the weather, so the beautiful garden and pool were well used. Would have no hesitation in recommending the house for a great holiday!
