fewo-direkt.de: Modern and spacious house highly recommended
The house is very spacious and bright, it is modern,and has all amenities which you would expect from a modern house. The photos shown in HomeAway do not really do justice to the house. The reality is better than shown in the photos. Every bedroom has its own bathroom. The house is very clean and well maintained.
There is a washing machine in the house, so one can spare some space in the suitcase by reducing clothes.
The house has internet connection, so if one needs contact to home you can phone via VoIP, or e-mail. We brought our laptops with us.
There are many televisions in the house, so each person can watch the program he likes. Many TV channels are not synchronized, so the original American films can be watched in english and contain portuguese subtitles.
The host is very friendly and eager to help in any respect.
Around 200m from the house you will find a modern and clean supermarket called Pingo Doce, which provides everything, food (fish, fruits, vegetables), cleaning articles, beach accessories, etc. There is a bus stop only 50m away from the house. We did not use the bus but saw a number of people using the bus, and the busses seem to commute regularly. Taking the car it will take you 3 minutes to get to the beach, with the bicycle it’s about 10 minutes. You can also walk to the beach, it takes about 20 minutes, even using flipflops.
There are many beaches nearby. During our stay it was quite windy, although warm, but the ocean probably did not get warmer than 20 degrees of Celsius. So you will find few people bathing in the ocean.
From the airport to the house it takes about 15 minutes with a car. Although the airport is near to the house you do not hear the airplanes at the house. But you do hear the street next to the house.
To Porto you drive around 20 minutes. From Porto you can use a high speed train (200 km/h) which brings you to Lisbon in less than 3 hours.
So it is possible to visit Lisbon within one day, although we stayed in Lisbon for 2 days and stayed the night in a hotel.
All in all we can highly recommend this house.
