small, family-run hotel in traditional villa
Posted Sep 19, 2016
We stayed for nearly two weeks in early September and had an excellent experience from check-in on day one to the private taxi they organised for us on departure. Every aspect of the hotel is supervised by the family from the immaculately manicured gardens and crystal clear pool to the clean rooms and fresh breakfasts. The location is in a quiet area of similar villas but only ten minutes walk from the beach, railway station, beachside restaurants and the start of the promenade to Cascais. The only downside is that the poolside area is only large enough to accommodate tables and chairs rather than sunbeds but at least there were always enough of these for everyone. The room facilities such as the air-con and shower were excellent and better than many 3 star and some 4 star places we've stayed. It's a traditional mansion/villa sympathetically converted to retain features such as portico, balconies, high ceilings, marble floors and staircase, shutters and half-tiled walls whilst having facilities such as lift, coded keys, good en-suites, room safe etc etc.
