Margarida purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Margarida chose Praia das Maçãs
I bought this house because I wanted a summer and weekend house near Lisbon ,where I live. The region is beautiful ,quite fresh in Summer.
What makes this Villa unique
The house is lovely,spacious but confortable. It has a nice view,the blue swimmingpool,the shining green grass with the village and the sea as scenary.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Very comfortable stay
I t was a very enjoyable stay in a well situated part of Portugal. Close enough to Lisbon and just outside the tourist hot spots
Lynn and Phil are a charming couple that I would like to keep as friends.
Unhappily Australia is very far away...
It was a pleasure to receive and getting to know them..
I strongly recommend them to any other host
Very nice but a couple of issues
Overall we found the house to be light, bright and very spacious. The issues we had were that the owner double booked our first night which we would have been completely unaware of had I not contacted her the week before to ask if we could arrange a late check out. We would have arrived off a very late flight to find someone already in the house. So definitely worth confirming your dates before you go.
Also one of the sliding doors at the back of the living room had a broken lock which we were not told about meaning we could have gone out and left the property unsecure. Thankfully there were electric shutters we could use.
The bedrooms felt a bit damp and musty but this may have been due to the very poor weather while we were there.
Probably wouldn't book again, but the house is in a great location very close to the beach and restaurants, also handy for the tram to Sintra.
I am very sorry Jayne and her group were not happy with their stay in my house .
June 2017 she made a reservation from the 24th to the 28th May 2018.
October 2017 she asked for an extra night the 23rd .I agreed but did not registered it on my timetable.
May 13th Jayne mailed saying they would arrive on the23rd .At first I thought she was mistaken but consulting the mails we had changed I got aware that she was right
As the house was occupied on the 23 rd .I immediately tried to get her an accomodation for that night in the area.Within one hour I had solved her problem ,. but she choosed to rent an appartment in Cascais .
As to had risked arriving and had no place to stay that would never be possible .I always mail my guests one week before their arrival to send them the House Guide ,the Places to Visit and the House Rules and to know the
estimated time of arrival,so that someone will be there to receive them.
She asked for a late check out and I accepted with no extra costs.
As to the broken lock,I did not know it was broken.Other guests had left the same morning and did not mention it and the housekeeper ,when she did the cleaning the same day, did not notice it.
If Jayne had informed me ,someone would have gone there to fix it.I have an handyman who solves all the problems that can happen,almost immediately.
Unlike the usual this time of the year, the weather in all the iberian peninsula has been terrible ,cloudy and rainy and humid,that might had been responsible for the smell Jayne said she felt .I have been there today and I felt nothing.
I am deeply sorry for my mistake as I already told her .It never happened before and I am sure will not happen again.
Sehr schönes Urlaubsdomizil!
Wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeit in diesem Haus, wir haben alles so vorgefunden wie angegeben. Sehr ruhige Umgebung, sehr nah zum Strand (vom Obergeschoss kann man das Meer sehen), drei komfortable Schlafzimmer, der Pool mit bis zu 2,40 Tiefe... Der Garten ist nicht sehr groß, aber das ist ja auf den Bildern genau so zu sehen.
Die Kommunikation mit Margarida verlief reibungslos und schnell, sie hat sich auch zwischendurch immer mal nach unserem Wohlbefinden erkundigt (den Preis der Pfanne, die wir gekauft haben, hat sie uns umgehend erstattet).
Praia das Macas ist ein entspannter, überhaupt nicht überlaufener Ort mit kleinen Bars in Strandnähe und einem kleinen, aber sehr schönen Strand, an dem es auch Surfschulen gibt.
Für uns war es der perfekte Urlaub!
The location and the hous were just perfect. We enjoyed every part of our stay at Margarida’s House.
Margarida answered very quickly and was really attentive, every thing was perfect and nice. Thank you. I really recommend this place. We came with a little child and there was every thing for him. Bed, chair, even a little bike. Thanks.
Location au top
Très bon agencement
A ne pas manquer
Mooi compleet huis dicht bij het strand
Dit huis is compleet uitgerust en geschikt voor iedereen die dicht bij het strand maar uit de drukte van Lissabon wil verblijven. Lissabon is met de trein goed en voordelig te bereiken vanaf Sintra alleen vanaf dit huis naar Sintra is het met de auto toch nog wel een eindje rijden. Margarida is een goede host die snel en duidelijk communiceert. Ook geeft zij goede adviezen over de omgeving.
The house is located 35 km from Lisbon, our capital, a very beautiful city that should not be missed.
The region is very beautiful, very wooded, green all year round, inviting walks, bike or car.
The house is 12km from the town of Sintra, a World Heritage Site, where you can visit the Town Palace, Moorish Castle, Monserrate Palace, Pena Palace, Quinta da Regaleira, many beautiful gardens, a modern art museum, a museum toy, etc.
An old tram, very picturesque, connects Praia das Macas Sintra, during the summer.
In the sea watermills, a small town stuck to Praia das Macas, you can bathe in natural pools and enjoy beautiful views of the sea and the village built on the slope.
Next find very touristy beaches as Estoril and Cascais ,, for the visit take the road from Malvern where you will enjoy superb views of the Atlantic coast. Be sure to stop at Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of Europe.
In Mafra, a small town about 25 km you will find a magnificent convent of the eighteenth century.
If you love the surf or bodyboard Praia Grande, just 3 km from the house, offers excellent conditions for the practice of those sports. Ribeira Islands, near the Ericeira beach, about 30 km, is the favorite of the Portuguese surfers.
The weather is very nice, cool in summer. The spring and autumn are habitualmenta sunny, with very mild temperatures and a beautiful light.
