“The perfect peaceful holiday retreat in an idyllic setting”
Reviewed 15 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed in The Shelter in July. Having never been to Portugal we decided our perfect trip would include a bit of city (Lisbon) and a lot of wandering around the coast seeing smaller towns and beaches. We always prefer to choose places to stay away from the busy tourist areas and when we came accross The Shelter it seemed perfect! It is close enough to Cascais (only about 15 mins drive) as well as is situated in a lovely wee town with a couple of supermarkets/restaurants and a great bakery (in which we had our best portugese custard tarts of the trip!) The house itself is very tastefully decorated and equipped to a very high standard with everything you would need for a perfect holiday. The garden was idyllic with an allotment of vegetables you can use, an outdoor bbq area and deckchairs overlooking a great view of the town. We spent many an evening eating outside and sipping wine in this great setting.
Petra and Constantino were the perfect hosts. They offered many tips and recommendations on the local area as well as Lisbon and further afield, and were just a telephone call away if we ever had any questions or problems.
We had a brilliant holiday at The Shelter and will definately return in the future and have been recommending to our friends. The one thing we would change in future visits is that we would make sure we had a car as whilst it's manageable getting around by bus it would be so much easier and quicker by car! Nearby highlights were Guincho beach, Paula Rego Museum in Cascais, Sintra and of course Lisbon. We will be back to explore more!
