Reviews of this property
Small very atypical village house.
Too much for us.
Location quiet and well placed for visiting the area.
Shopping center 3 km (vedras) handy as nothing in the village.
Extra comfort on the welcome bedding.
Petite Maison de village très atypique.
Trop pour nous.
Endroit au calme et bien placé pour faire les visites aux alentours.
Centre commercial à 3 kms (vedras) bien pratique car rien dans le village.
Un confort supplémentaire sur la literie bienvenu.
House with a very appealing architecture, based on a fusion of traditional and experimental designs. The pool, although small, fits the need for a cool dip in a sunny summer afternoon. The house is somewhat moist what is normal around the region but which makes it not very suitable for someone with allergies. The Host was always nice and thoughtful. Excellent place to have a rest if you enjoy the rustic countryside living.
Oh, this is difficult…the house is both a wonder and a nightmare. Let's start with the wonders.
The house is truly unique; rebuild with an artistic sense for decorating and an almost surrealistic remodelling (rebuilding) of an old house; the floors are mounted into one big open room; basically build with a rock as one part of the construction. The decoration is very original, artistic and with a lot of taste (although maybe not for everybody) - the funitures are elegant - old but chosen with taste. On top of the house there is a terrace and a (very) small pool.
So what's not to like?
Unfortunately quite a lot…
The construction of the house against the rock (being a former wine cellar I believe) creates a _very_ humid and damp environment. True, my son and I are asthmatics (though not very much and usually quite under control), but even the two non-asthmatics in our family complained about breathing difficulties immediately upon arrival; our noses were stuffed and our eyes were irritated as well. The bed linings (and beds) were damp and one room was just plain unusable.
The toilet was broken; the handle fell of every time we used it, and the water ran like Niagara Falls…non stop. The bathroom is situated in the middle of the house, so the most logical passageway is through the bathroom. The door to the toilet doesn't close completely even when locked (leaving a gap of 2-4 cm).
The bath is open in the bathroom and water flows into the next room every time someone is taking a shower.
Within a few hours we realized that we could not possibly stay in the house and took our leave after sleeping there one night (as we had arrived late and had nowhere to go – otherwise we had left immediately). The next morning we sneezing and coughing, returned the keys to the next door bar, and made for Lisbon where we booked a traditional hotel.
We promptly contacted both the owner (who, it should be said, seems like a very nice person) and of course Wimdu and explained our experience.
No refund was made - not even in part.
I guess that is he name of the game when using services like Wimdu, but it most definitely ensured that we are going for traditional hotels and the like in the future.
I cannot imagine any of my colleagues or friends who would accept a house like this for their holidays. And I am truly really sorry to say so, for I have a lot of sympathy for both the hose and the owner.

Die Wohnung ist sehr zentral gelegen. Man kann vieles zu Fuß erkunden und sie ist sehr gut mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln zu erreichen. Die urige Wohnung ist zum Teil mit sehr geschmackvollen Möbeln ausgestattet. In der Wohnung ist es angenehm kühl ( bei uns waren bis zu 42 Grad in Lissabon). Toll fand ich auch, dass es eine Terrasse gibt. Insgesamt ein sehr gutes Preis - Leistungsverhältnis.
Good afternoon, our journey continues. Lisbon was the first item. The apartment matched the description on the website. The owner was very attentive, punctual, responsive. The location is wonderful. Next year will definitely use your services. Thanks for the welcome.
Nice clean rooms, good beds and complete kitchen. No street noises whatsoever, even though plenty of bars and restaurants are in the close neighbourhood. Communication with the owner was clear and swift. Excellent stay!
Todo perfecto. El trato con Richard muy cordial. Nos dejó las llaves en un hostel cercano y las dejamos dentro del apartamento al irnos, por lo que no le vimos en toda la estancia. La situación es muy buena y permite ir andando a la mayoría de lugares de interés.
We had a great stay in Richards Appartment - we felt like home. Comfortable and a perfect location in the middle of everything but asolutely quiet. Communication was always easy and quick. We really recommend Richards place and we would bsolutely use it again when we come back to Lisbon. Thank you Richard.
Hou er rekening mee dat het perfecte appartement (3 hoog) iets hoger gelegen ligt in het centrum. Veel omhoog lopen dus. Alles is aanwezig en het appartement was schoon. Goede wifi. De slaapbanken van Ikea staan in de woonkamer. Als bed waren ze prima, als bank zaten ze niet fijn. We hadden een avond vlucht en hadden het geluk dat we langer in het appartement konden blijven. Zonder bijbetaling.
