“Disappointing stay - For the price, you can do better in the area.”

We stayed at this villa with 8 adults and 3 children for 10 days in April 2013.

First, the good: Upon arrival, you will be very impressed with the grounds and gardens – very pleasant and well cared for. Likewise, the interior décor of the villa itself has clearly been given a good deal of attention. The owner was also quite obliging with regards to airport pickups and stocking the fridge for our arrival (at cost).

Now, the less good: At the end our ten days’ stay, we felt that we had overpaid for the rental, as a multitude of things broke or weren’t offered, and we felt that the owners really nickel-and-dimed on many things. The biggest problem we faced was that the electricity would shut off several times per day, and at times we had to walk around the house unplugging everything simply to keep it on. So this was frustrating, and the owner did not seem keen to look into it, suggesting rather that we were using too much electricity. The laundry dryer did not work, some of the elements of the stove did not work, several of the heating radiators did not work, many lights did not work, several bathroom faucets simply did not run any water – including the sole bathtub in the house, which ran only hot water, making it very difficult to bathe the children. Technically there is wifi, but it is an ancient router in a stone-walled house, so one really had to stand next to it in the hallway to catch a signal. The cookware and bedding was all rather old and shabby. And despite promises that the pool would be heated, it was never warm enough for swimming, and the heater had to be turned off owing to the electrical problems.

There were more annoyances, but I think these sufficiently paint a picture. I’m sure you would have a nice time at this rental, but I suggest you negotiate a lower price with the owner. Having looked around, you can find a much nicer place right inside of Sintra, instead of in the countryside, for the same or less money.

Liked best: The grounds and decor

Dear Mrs. Jessica and Andrew Webb,
Thank you for your admiration of garden and home decor.
In regards to the pool heating and central heating which were free of cost & was 26 degree) and it is hopeless expecting 28 degrees in April with rain. There were not such problems which you mentioned really. Tumble dryer was working and went off during your stay. ( electric gadget can stop working any time and as it was only one day remained of your stay I didn't change).
It was shameful on your part asking return money and when not given back writing bad review.

“Best holidays i ever had”
Reviewed 7 November 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Very well decorated house with all the equipments and a big garden with lovely landscape increase the charm of this villa in Sintra.. very near to Lisbon and Cascais.
We were a family of 8 and this spacious house gave each of us plenty of our own space to do different activities. Owners are very helpful and the town people and surroundings with church and the folkloric festival in Dona maria town.. all these made our stay memorable.
we will definitely looking forward to stay here again.
