Interaction with guests
The Villa is split into 2 apartments, the Garden apartment is available for rental for holidays from April till the end of October. The other apartment we (the owners) live in. So the larger garden area and pool are shared with us (Alison, James and Sophie). We're generally available if you have questions or a problem, though we're quite happy if guests want to keep to themselves and we won't intrude.

The Collis family are very welcoming and their apartment has everything to make a holiday with children relaxing and enjoyable. The area has plenty to discover and 'do' if that's what you want, but the well equipped house and lovely village setting mean staying at home is great too. Definitely somewhere we'd love to return to.

Management response:

Glad you enjoyed the local play park and restaurant so much, as well as the pool and garden. We'd be delighted to see you again in the future.

We have just come back from staying here for 10 days today!! Thats myself, my husband, my mum and our 2 children- 2 1/2 and 1 1/2 y/o's........... It is amazing!! The owners are so welcoming and accomodating for all your needs. The villa itself is just incredible- everything you could think of is there for adults as well as kids. The garden/pool area is really secluded with palm trees and other plants, equipped with sunbeds, table and chairs, bbq, lots of pool lilos etc.
The location is a small village (Coto) with a few restaurants short walking distance away- both serve great food at great prices, and a local supermarket 5 min drive away.
Its a great base to go and visit the main local attractions- Buddah Eden- half hour drive, san martinho beach- 15 mins drive, obidos- the walled city- 15 mins drive, the lisbon aquarium (oceanarium) 1 hr drive.
It is so good, that we are already planning our next visit- for september (this year)!!
Thanks James and Alison x

Management response:

Thanks Michelle, it's always a delight when people enjoy themselves and make the most of the cultural and leisure facilities for families close by.
