"lovely place in a nice setting"

Me and my family (7 persons) spent 14 days in this nature paradise not far from lisbon, We enjoyed the cottage like house, the large garden and a huge pool. The house offers privacy, cosiness and calmness although various beaches, restaurants and nice portuguese villages are nearby. Lisbon is on one hour distance and nice for a daytrip or two. We can suggest any one to spend his holiday at this place as a group of friends or as a family either with young or with older children.
