“Nice place to stay with family”
Reviewed 13 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This place is nice but we got off to a rocky start. The location is great if you have a car...otherwise it would be a little out of the way for supermarkets and to go to any attractions in the region...but it's a lovely quiet village and the property itself feels safe and secure.
This apartment down stairs where we stayed has the potential for being "a modern luxury apartment" but in my opinion it isn't quite maintained as that. We reported our concerns to the owner on the first day and to be fair, she tried to remedy what she could and has said that she would address the issues that we raised, so I won't discredit them as far as that is concerned. It could do with a few things being left in the property as standard such as handwash and something to wash up with like a clean sponge and washing up liquid, but hey...the supermarket is a 5-10 minute drive away so we soon stocked up on these supplies and left them for the next people coming in after us. The lovely lady Glenys who is their cleaner did buy tea, coffee and milk for when we arrived which was a really nice touch, so I can see that they do try to be really accommodating.
The bedrooms are all very clean and well appointed and the pool and the outside areas are wonderful. We had to forage for a bbq at the front by the electric gates (this area is a bit of a bbq graveyard)...but once we had the grill and found a base we could use, we were good to go and made do with it.
The whole family loved the basketball hoop at the front and in general, we had a great time just being together as a family, regardless of the hiccups we had to begin with. This is a lovely place but could be made even better with a few adjustments.

Hi Dee

Thanks for the review, the things you mentioned i.e., sponge washing up liquid should have been left as a matter of course.

This is our first year of it being looked after by someone else and due to circumstances we were supposed to be there but this this did not happen as you know.

As you can see from all other reviews there has been no issues whatsoever.

Sorry again and thank you for bringing it our attention.

“Excellent Place, Highly Recommeneded”
Reviewed 19 November 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had an excellent weeks stay in this superb holiday let. It was so comfortable you forgot it was an holiday let. (a week wasnt long enough).
Slightly off the beaten track in the village of Fandania which added to the charm, car rental required.
The 3 bedrooms where fitted out to a high standard as was the kitchen & lounge.
A private pool & hot tub rounded it all off.
Our hosts Graham & Helen where brilliant showed us all the best places to eat, shop & visit. Twice they laid on a BBQ for us.
We highly recommended Casa da Borboleta.

“Great Apartment, location and owners”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We have had a wonderful week at Casa da Borboleta. Helen, Graham & Alex were wonderful hosts, taking us out for a meal and giving us lots of helpful tips to make the most out of the holiday as there is so much to see and do in the area, Our group consisted of 3 adults, a 6 year old and a 1 year old and we all had a great time playing in the pool, the large sand pit, the trampoline, the swing set and most importantly, the hot tub. Food and drink in the area is so affordable and the apartment had everything. Beautifully decorated, lots of space everything you need for a self catering holiday. A car is a must and exploring the area is definately a must as Obidos, Foz de Arelho, Caldas da Rainha and more, are a short drive away. Sintra was a great day out too. We really enjoyed our stay and so many friends have commented on how lovely our holiday looked, we have recommended it to so many people and hope to return next year.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 21 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Recently returned from our 2 week holiday. Travelled with our two under children. Everything we needed was available in the apartment and the space was appreciated too. The private pool, hot tub and the kids play area was all an advantage. Car is required, the area and local villages are lovely. Plenty to do if you dont fancy lying by the pool everyday. Eating out is really cheap as well.

Helen and Graham are really nice and will offer advice if needed. We hope to return soon.
