Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Hello Everyone,

This was a 6 days family vacation: 3 adults and 2 teenagers. Carlos' house is really beautiful,

decorated with taste, spacious, very clean and it has a nice layout.The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed for the first days, including beer and wine . Everything was in working condition. The location is on a quiet street, a 5 minutes walk to the main street with plenty of restaurants, local gift shops, and a beautiful beach. Since the ocean water was really cold, we enjoyed the huge public(?) saltwater swimming pool (a little pricey though).

Carlos is very professional, helpful and honest. He answered all our emails in time and in detail. He released our deposit in a timely manner.

Our thanks and appreciation.

Great location near beach and working village

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at this property. 2 adults 2 teenage daughters and our 7 year old son. It was very clean and well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The beach is a short walk away with many nearby restaurants. You can also take a pleasant coastal walk to Praia Grande where there are more bars and restaurants.

From the village you can get the tram to Sintra which is well worth doing.

There is a great local shop that stocks everything. There is also an indoor market with fresh fish, fruit and Vegetables.

We had a wonderful holiday. Lots of thanks to Miguel and Helena who live close by and looked after us very well.

Hanoi, vietnam


  • 5 of 5

The weather was colder than we anticipated for that time of year. However, the owners were warmer than we could have imagined and they helped us with all of things we needed. The neighbours are very charming too. The house was very comfortable for 7 people and we all had a good time.

Nice house, nice place, nice people, nice things to do

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean, and you have plenty of space to feel comfortable even with a family of 2 adults and 3 teenagers (Wifi will connect all the devices your children need).

The neighborhood is made of village house and some bigger houses, you feel you live with local population and it feels great. That's a very quite place. You sleep well at night.

You are 3 minutes away by foot from a shop where you can buy fruits, vegetables, and everything you forgot in the supermercado. They also sell good bread.

You are 6 minutes away by foot from the center of the village, and 7 minutes from the beach. not large but nice and sufficient enough. We recommend the beach bar, reasonable place, and place to wait for splendid sunset.

You are 20 minutes away by foot (small road following the shore not to be done with little children) or 5 minutes by car (park place difficult to find after 11 am) from Praia grande very large beach.

We took surfing lessons there, people nice.

You are 15 minutes away by car from Sintra*** and 40 minutes from Lisbon****

So this is a very good place to stay, go to the beach, do sports, and visit places. We recommend it warmly.

Special thanks to the owners and family, very welcoming and with great attention. We arrived not expectedly very late, and they managed to be there, with a great smile and took time to visit the place with us.

Lovely Time

  • 5 of 5

This is our first choice when staying in Praia das Macas. Great rooms, great location, lots of sun and beach time, the kids couldn't get enough! Very welcoming and friendly local people. Fell in love with Sintra's magical sites and all the delicious food, it's definitely a must go and do!

See you next time!

Very traditional and touristic location. The beaches are very clean and popular in the summer. You can also catch the traditional tram which starts from Praia das maçãs and goes all the way to Sintra.

Very vast and high quality gastronomy.
