    Property description
    Malveira da Serra
    Holiday Rental House – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    We are a couple, journalist and photographer, passionate about traveling, gardening, recycling ... so our Shelter reflects all of this and is always in constant-change!

    Our goal is to provide a SHELTER where you can have a comfy sleep, cook your own fish (grilled perhaps!) with a cool white wine, take a nap in a hammock... where the view invites you to lose your thoughts. at Guincho beach, Cascais, Portugal

    The great attraction of the house is the wonderful view and the garden, where guests can relax in a hammock, lunch or dinner and enjoy the view. There is also a garden of vegetables that can be harvested to accompany meals.

From the second we arrived at the address we knew this place was special (not to mention the incredibly warm welcome from Petra & Constantine). The Shelter is their home - and you feel it - so all amenities are in place and every detail has been considered and catered for. These people have style!

The house is wonderfully laid out on two levels; kitchen and bathroom on top, bedroom and living area below. The living area has panoramic views of the city afforded by the enormous windows that can be opened wholly. Petra & Constantine supplied a travel bed for our two year old which was fantastic and our bed was extremely comfortable.

The garden is amazing, with wonderfully green grass and a truly inspiring, unobstructed view of the city and surrounding landscape. It also has an outdoor grill, table, chairs, hammock and chandelier(!). Very cosy indeed! On the lower garden terrace grow a variety of vegetables that we used in our cooking. The best tomatoes...

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...
