“A wonderful apartment, location, host and holiday”

This was he vacation were looking for. We were in a scenically gorgeous vista that was pleasing on they eyes-- imagine viewing the Atlantic from a large balcony-patio while overlooking some beautiful countryside! From the outset, our hosts Mario and Didi were peaches: from the informatively helpful instructions they gave on how to get to the charming, small town of Almoçageme (about twenty minutes by car from Sintra) , and to the apartment itself, to their equally instructive knowledge about the town and the general surrounding areas—where best to eat, what to drink, and how best to get to places—they were very special and welcoming hosts. They lived upstairs from where we stayed, and were always both accommodating but unobtrusive. The apartment itself is very pleasantly furnished and tastefully decorated, and it has equally tasteful aesthetic with subtle African art motifs. The apartment was also well furnished and attractively designed, with what was like another, outside room: a large porch-like patio big enough to have meals on, stretch out on a patio chaise-longue, sit and read, walk around if you wanted to, and/or barbecue if you so chose. It had two bedrooms, but we only used one, occasionally using one to work in. The kitchen had all the utensils that you could want and the living room having very good wi-fi and TV, as well a number of coffee table books and some books and maps on the local area.
Set in the delightful small town of Almoçageme where people are friendly and helpful. The food was wonderful. I have never had roasted chicken as good as here, and along with the frango no currasco, the fish from the market, as within nearly all of the restaurants, were amongst the best I have anywhere. Like the food, the wine was generally good and inexpensive, as were he restaurants and cafes. We never had a bad cup of coffee, indeed were spoiled here with it. Form the apartment and town, one is within walking distance from the beach, and a good work out too, as it was all up hill coming back. You could mix going to the beach with hiking, or just walking around.
Such was the peacefully, languidly, slow paced pleasant time that we had, we were reluctant and sad to leave. We would certainly like to go back, as for us it was the perfect location and perfect vacation.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
