Out of this World!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful stay in this luxurious villa. It really is as magnificent as it looks in the photos. The playroom was a welcome bonus for the children too. It was very spacious for 8 of us (6 adults and 2 children) and brilliantly equipped for children - plastic crockery, pushchair etc. The villa was very clean and the towels were changed mid-week and the bathrooms cleaned. The beach is lovely and Cascais is definitely worth a visit.
The small negatives were that the neighbouring cockerel liked to sometimes crow at inconvenient times (take ear plugs or have a glass or three wines to block him out!!) and the beach/restaurants etc were a good 25 minute walk pushing two buggies along higgledy piggledy pavements. (If adult only party you could walk it quicker). These are only minor things.
The villa manager, Marilia was soooo helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble; she even got us a few bits of shopping to start us off on our holiday. Marilia's help made the run up to the holiday very stress free and it was so reassuring to know that an English speaker was there at the other end!

Thank you to everyone who made our holiday so enjoyable!

Dream villa in beautiful location

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned home to Scotland after a magical week-long family holiday at Casa das Maçãs. Our party of nine ranged in age from 3 to 67, and there was something for everyone. Among our group were two keen surfers, who found excellent beaches nearby. Harris (aged 3) loved the heated pool, massive basement play zone, outdoor slide and swings and nearby beaches. My parents enjoyed relaxing by the pool, barbecuing fresh fish bought from the nearby market, and day trips to the many villages nearby. And we all enjoyed day trips to Lisbon, Sintra, the market at San Pedro, the science museum, cabo de rocca and palaces.

But most of all, we loved the villa - which has everything you could hope for and more. It was clean, comfortable, well equipped and the welcome we received was incredibly friendly and helpful. Despite it being the start of November, the sun shone and we were in the pool every day. HIghly recommended and worth every penny. Thank you so much to Marilla and Jose for a wonderful stay. :)

Lovely villa

  • 5 out of 5
We recently spent a week during June at Casa Das Macas and had a lovely time. The villa was immaculate and lived up to it's fantastic reputation.

Marilia was more than helpful from the early email contact through to greeting us upon our arrival and even buying a birthday present for our 3 year old daughter!

We spent a sunny week relaxing in the villa and in the lovely warm and clean swimming pool. The kitchen was modern and very well equipped as were all of the rooms

We made good use of the bbq and even managed to get a few games of table tennis in.

Our party consisted of 8 adults and a 3 year old and a 1 year old. The play room was a god-send for the 3 year old who spent lots of time in there out of the red-hot sun.

Praia Das Macas had a nice clean beach that had lots of surfers which was good to watch. It was quite a walk for some of the older members of our group (because there are a few hills to walk up and down) so a hire car is definitely recommended. There were a few restaurants (predominantly seafood) and a handful of small shops.

A day trip to Sintra provided a fantastic experience. Lots of shops, restaurants and bars. The palaces and castles were beautiful and it is a lovely heritage site that did not disappoint.

I would definitely recommend the villa to others ensuring they ensure they have some transport (to save some weary legs at the end of the night)!

Many thanks to Marilia, the owner and the staff.

Beyond expectations

The house is as beautiful as the pictures show, decorated with great taste. We were a party of 7, and enjoyed the space inside and outside. The location allows freedom to walk to the near by Praia das maças and its shops and restaurant.
Great place, which I highly recommend.

Fantastic house in great surroundings

  • 5 out of 5
It is not often that the house in real life is even more beautiful than on the pictures but in this case it is.... So the description and pictures on the website really match the house.

We stayed here with small children and the house is really well equipped for kids with all the toys you can wish for. We really enjoyed the house and the surroundings because there are amazing beaches on just a few minutes drive.

We would recommend this property to all our friends and relatives since it is so great. We will visit the house again in September and are already looking forward to it.
