Everything we were looking for
5/5 Stayed
We had a nice stay in this villa. We really enjoyed the pool and other activities. Location is pretty good for getting around Portugal and drive around different interesting attractions.
Nothing to complain about. Our group is thankful for this opportunity.

Urlaub vom Feinsten
5/5 Stayed
In einer umwerfenden Parklandschaft mit herrlichem Swimmingpool steht eine Villa die es an Nichts fehlen lässt. Auf dem gepflegten Tennisplatz lässt sich gut spielen, nach der Abkühlung im Pool stehen sonnige und schattige Plätzchen zum Relaxen zur Verfügung. Am Nebenhaus befindet sich die Grill-Station die gut ausgestattet ist.
Lidl, Aldi und einheimische Ladenketten sind in wenigen Minuten mit dem Auto erreichbar, der riesige und herrliche Strand ist ebenfalls nur Minuten entfernt. In den naheliegenden Restaurants ist für Jeden etwas zu finden.
Die Betreuung durch João und seine Mitarbeiter war toll.
Fazit: Sehr empfehlenswert

Fantastic facilities close to beach and Lisbon
I stayed in the villa with 10 friends for 1 week. The villa was fantastic. The pool and tennis court were amazing. The Villa was really nice and clean and Joao was extremely helpful. Really nice beach just three minutes in a taxi. Amazing seafood there too! Would 100% recommend to groups.

Fantastic holiday 😀
We were a party of 10 adults all family. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. The swimming pool and gardens are fantastic. Joao the owner was really helpful and always replied to any questions we had. The 3 adults in the garden house could have done with a fan as it was hot at night. The villa was roomy. None of us felt we were living on top of each other. The welcome pack of food was good. We used Ubers all week so no need for a car. Thank you Joao!

Large villa with great pool and tennis courts and outside space.
Three families totalling 12 stayed in the villa for two weeks. The pool was great, large and clean. Visible from the seating/lounging area which was great. The tennis court was new and a great space as were the gardens. Very secure. Local beach beautiful with a number of restaurants and bars. Two supermarkets close but not walkable distance. Very easy to Uber everywhere if you don’t want to hire a car. The annex beds weren’t great and the family staying in there did feel dissatisfied compared with those in the villa. Not comfortable and no fans available in the annex. Plenty of fridge and freezer space for drinks and food. Large kitchen with plenty of utilities. Large washing machine was very good! We very much enjoyed ourselves.

Nice house, incredible garden and pool area.
he house is big and nice. The kitchen has all the things you need, big diningtable, but the best part of this house, is the garden and poolarea! We loved it and no fight to get a sunbed😀� big diningareas outside, we hardly spent any time inside. Great service when we arrived, the kleening is excelent, lots of good tips to where to go and what to do, Joao and this people did a great job doing everything they could to make our stay perfect! There is a fitness and spa in the neibourhood (7min walking) and about 3km to Lidl and Aldi. The beach is 5km away, and very nice, both for small children and surfers. The beachclub on your left side when you get down to the beach, had the best burgers. We had a car, but Uber was working perfect. Nexttime we will only use Uber. It was a bit problematic to find parking at the beach, but we found it every time. 10min to shopping Rio Sul, with a BIG Continente. There are many great restaurants within 5km, we can recommend solar das tilias and sabor meneiro in Charneca if you like meat, and oh Carlos for meat and fish. Thank you for two great weeks, we had a lovly time!!

Conforme en tous points à l'annonce
Nous avons passé une bonne semaine dans cette belle demeure confortable et parfaite pour se retrouver en famille. Maison tout confort ( sèche cheveux dans chaque SDB) Joli parc très bien entretenu et agréable. Le terrain de tennis semblait "terne" sur l'annonce mais rien de tout cela; filet, ligne et revêtement impeccable. piscine irréprochable. M. Joao FRADE est un homme disponible et très agréable, de bons conseils. C'est rare et appréciable.

This villa is a lovely place to spend a holiday. The swimming pool is great and tennis court is in a good condition too. The garden is beautiful. Located in a peaceful area but not too far from Lisbon. Joao is a very helpful host.

"We stayed in Villa das Palmeiras with 2 families and my parents. The villa is even better than in the pictures. Everything is well maintained and the garden, the swimming pool and the tennis court are outstanding! Lisbon is only 30 minutes by car, the beach is 10 minutes as is the golf course. João is a great host who is extremely friendly and goes all the way to make it a pleasant stay for the guests. I would really recommend Villa das Palmeiras to everyone who is looking for a great holiday close to a pleasant city and close to the beaches!"

We had an amazing stay at João's villa! The villa and gardens were lovely, and very spacious. The pool is much bigger than it looks in the photos, and we used the BBQ area and outside seating most evenings which was great. João provided maps, information of local shops and lots of restaurant recommendations prior to our arrival which was really helpful. There are lots of nice beaches nearby, and we visited a delicious seafood restaurant on the beach at Fonta de Telha beach that João recommended. We also surfed at Praia da Morena beach, and hired windsurf kit at Lagoa de Albufeira. This villa is perfect for a family/friends holiday and João is a wonderful host who was on hand to provide further recommendations when we arrived in Portugal. Many thanks João.


Fint och rymligt hus med riktigt bra poolområde! Vi var 2 familjer, tot 10 pers, som bodde i en vecka. Huset är stort och fint och plats för 8st personer och i gårdshuset bodde 2 personer. Bra WiFi vilket uppskattades av barnen!! Det fanns inte aircondition i huset så det kan troligtvis bli ganska hett inomhus då det är riktigt varmt. Vi hade relativt svalt när vi var där, ca 20-24 grader, så det var inga problem. Trädgården var fantastisk med stora ytor och riktigt härliga palmer! Huset ligger i ett bostadsområde där alla hus har stängsel och det är mycket vakthundar som skäller när man tar sin promenad eller springrunda runt om i området. Det är ca 5km till havet och en fantastisk sandstrand. Där ligger även några fina mysiga restauranger. Värden Joao var mycket trevlig och även att vi kom fram mitt i natten så ordnade han att vi fick personligt mottagande av hans vänner då han själv i kunde vara där. Kan verkligen rekommendera en vecka i detta hus!

Très beau séjour en famille réussi à merveille grâce à note hôte Joao qui nous a donné d'excellentes adresses de visites, de restaurants, de commerces pour un séjour inoubliable. La maison est très spacieuse avec tout les équipements nécessaire ainsi que sa magnifique piscine chauffée. La dépendance est très agréable et l'emplacement est idéal pour le calme total. Nous recommandons vivement cette villa à 25 minutes de Lisbonne.

Céline B., 

Our family (from 6 years to 73 years old) enjoyed this beautiful villa during the summer. The house is very well maintained, with nice bedrooms and bathrooms and it has a large kitchen with all equipment you need. But we especially enjoyed the very nice clean and big! pool. Also the large garden with amazing big trees, palms and flowers gave us a terrific holiday feeling. The house is situated close to the beach, Lisbon and natural parks. Special thanks to our host Joao, who made us feel very welcome!

Très belle propriété avec une magnifique piscine, cours de tennis et parc verdoyant. Joao, le propriétaire, est bienveillant, il nous a recommandé des restos très sympas. La maison est très bien équipée.Séjour parfait.

Beautiful villa, very accommodating. Gorgeous landscape and great size pool. Tennis court is wonderful too.

Fiévez Catalina , 

We were 3 generations staying at the house and had an excellent time! The house is better than it looks in the pictures, especially the pool which is spacious and with a perfect temperature. We spent many days just playing tennis and being at the pool. The house is perfect for families wanting a relaxing holiday. We tried a couple of the restaurants which Joao recommended. These were authentic with local cuisine and all had great food!


Hi, Villa das Palmeiras is an excellent place to spend your holiday in! The house is fresh and clean and has nice bedrooms with bathrooms nearby. The kitchen has everything you need with an extra fridge and freezer. The pool is great! The youngsters jumped into the water and the small children stepped down the stairs. The temperature in the pool was also perfect. In the wonderful, and well taken care of, garden there are a tennis court, fruit trees, palm trees, flowers and cosy lamps at night time. It is also easy to get to a food store, though there are two supermarkets in the neighborhood, Aldi and Lidl. If you will take a bath in the Atlantic Sea it´s about ten minutes way by car. The beach is marvelous! If you want to visit Lissabon, it´s easy to go by car, it takes about 20 minutes. We stayed thirteen persons in Villa das Palmeiras, where the youngest girl is 1 year old and the oldest man is 60 years old. The place is really perfekt for a family, or for couples, to spend a comfortable holiday. Best Regards /Helén and Tommy with families

Geweldige villa met alles erop en eraan. alles was ook schoon en goed onderhouden. Wij waren met een familie (12 personen) Hele mooie tuin met een diep zwembad, een tennisbaan en een groot gras gedeelte. Ook genoeg tafels en stoelen rondom. Het is echt zoals ook op de foto's Op de dag van aankomst werden we vriendelijk ontvangen door de housekeepers omdat Joao er zelf op dat moment niet kon zijn maar via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) wel constant in contact. Joao geeft je via dropbox vooraf heel veel informatie over het huis en de omgeving. Wij hadden auto’s gehuurd en daarmee waren we binnen een half uur in het centrum van Lissabon. Lidl voor de verse broodjes en de andere boodschappen is op 2 min rijden, maar dat staat allemaal al in de dropbox. Bij ons was het koffieapparaat kapot gegaan, maar een (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)je en er werd bijna direct een nieuwe geleverd. Wij kunnen de villa van harte aanbevelen, Joao doet heel erg zijn best om het je aan niets te laten ontbreken. Geweldig.

We had an amazing stay in the villa. The garden and pool are stunning, the beds are comfortable and the large amount of bathrooms is a nice luxury. Great and friendly service from Joao ensures you get everything out of your stay. Villa Palmeiras comes highly recommended!

We are a group of 11 guys aged from 18-20. This was our second holiday in as many years as a group, having visited a small area near Valencia last year (Alberique) this year we decided to venture to Portugal. The villa was in a small and quiet complex in Sebutal, around a 45 minute drive from Lisbon airport. A taxi cost us €40/50 (some of us got uber, some jumped in a taxi at the airport taxi rank). Upon arrival we were greeted by one of the most friendly gentleman we have ever met, we never actually got his name but when conversation surfaced about him we would usually call him "that guy" as he really was that guy. He was very helpful upon arrival, showed us around the villa, gave us lots of information. "That guy" offered to drive myself and 2 others to the nearest and most beautiful beach, local supermarket (Aldi) and the bus stop which got us from he villa to the beach. We never worked out if the buses in Sebutal sold returns so we ended up buying €2.25 singles each time. Maybe try and learn what 'return' is in Portuguese if you'd like to save yourself some coins when you stay. We are English and speak absolutely no Portuguese so communication was slightly difficult but anything that was a struggle to communicate about was solved by the owner of the villa. Joao, who we met midway through our stay, also a very friendly and chatty man. He spoke very good English and was very welcoming and helpful with the information he gave us. For example, he gave us a pizza delivery service which we enjoyed around 200€ of pizza from (and that was with 30% discount for spending so much). He also told us how bad the beer was we were drinking and recommended a local beer which I won't lie, was a lot better. Although as a group of English students we couldn't afford to from drink it all week and after seven beers each everything tastes the same anyway. For us, this villa was perfect, very clean and located perfectly as we enjoy exploring the local areas of small towns. We didn't have a car therefore there was almost nothing to do outside the villa, so if you're looking to explore further I'd recommend a car. A bus was enough for us. On our final night we decided to mix it up and spend it on the beach instead of the villa, turned out there our several bars on the beach. Strongly recommend Rampa Beach Club! Our night lasted until 8am. Was fun Overall, this week was ideal for us and it was sad for us to hand over the keys to that guy and say goodbye. Thank you Joao

Nous avons tous été conquis par cette superbe villa ou nous avons passé une semaine en famille avec enfants (6) et petits enfants (4). Elle était faite pour nous ... Très bien située, à 30-40 minutes des principaux sites touristiques de Lisbonne, à 5 minutes de la plage et du golf ... Les petits enfants ont particulièrement apprécié la piscine, où ils passaient le plus clair de leur temps. Pour les plus grands, c'était le tennis, les terrasses et le jardin très bien entretenu. Et quel accueil chaleureux. A notre arrivée, nous attendait un plateau de charcuterie et de fromage accompagné de vins. En conclusion, un séjour de rêve. Nous recommandons cette villa pour un séjour en famille ou entre amis.

Thank you João, you where Great host, helpfull and welcoming. We had such an amazing holiday. The property is as beautiful as it is in the pictures. The pool was our favourite and we played a lot of tennis. We recommend for the visiters to get your own car, we transported by taxis and busses. It was a bit challenging but we always got to the destination we were heading. The beach near the villa is the most beautiful we have ever seen. High recomendations!

Miranna N., 

João was very helpful in sending lots of recommendations and he showed us the best local shops and restaurants. He was accomodating and told us to treat the house as our own. The house is very beautiful with stunning gardens. The interior is nicer and more spacious than it looks in the pictures and everyone was happy in their rooms; plenty of room for 10 people. Outside is really stunning and the pool and tennis courts don't disappoint! We also bought a badminton court and set that up on the grass so there was plenty of activities. A short drive from a beautiful beach with lovely fish restaurant and some bars. Sintra was 40 minute drive away and stunning, and Lisbon is easy to get to in about half an hour. A beautiful city to explore on foot. Do read the recommendations in the book as we found some lovely places in there. Sunbathing and reading in the garden, enjoying the forest views and jumping in the cold pool were my favourite parts! Can't recommend this house more highly!! The garden looks too good to be true but it is everything the pictures promise and more. Had a week with family including baby and the facilities for children are good- 2 cots and high chair for feeding. Second week was with friends and they all loved the place. Because of the facilities and supermarket so close we mainly cooked at the house so it was quite cheap in the end. Ample bathroom facilities too. Perfect with family and friends. A quiet neighborhood meant it was very relaxing but we were able to play music because of the size of the place. Sad to be back home now but hoping to come again! Thank you João. Becky


"cadre reposant et jardin magnifique"
Environnement très agréable pour passer des vacances en famille, reposant cadre extérieur (jardin) magnifique et spacieux.

Simoes S, 

The villa was great. Nice and spacious inside with everything you need. I have stayed at a lot of villas where the kitchen lacks a lot of saucepans and handy utensils but this had everything we needed. The Pool is AMAZING and very clean. The gardens are everything and more than the pictures. I would thoroughly recommend this villa to anyone. We had 3 different groups/ families and we didn't feel on top of one another. Fab!

Helena h., 

The villa was absolutely beautiful. The pool was very large, it is much larger in real life than it looks on the pictures. The tennis court was also fantastic. The rooms were well made up with plentiful towels and the gardens and facilities were superb. We had a great holiday and thoroughly recommend it to anyone. The host and his family were very kind and showed us where all the local supermarkets were and the beach.


Superb House
Superb house and garden. We were 10 people who lived there and there was no problem .Nice kitchen and plenty of space. Even the tennis court advantage even though we never had played tennis before. I recommend all to rent a car if you stay there. We took a taxi and it was expensive and the taxi had difficult to find in this area

Recommend to our friends
Our family have spent a very relaxing weeks holiday here at the Villa das Palmeiras. The villa has accommodated 4 generations with ease. My parents have just celebrated their 80th birthdays before we left home, my children and their children have joined us to mark the memorable occasion. The Villa, gardens, pool and tennis court have all lived up to expectations, mum and dad even played tennis ! With the beach just a short drive away and the town very accessible we found there was very little else we needed. We do hope that the Villa will be available in the future as the area is a holiday destination we all wish to visit again. Many thanks for the warm welcome and brief tour when we arrived Extremely clean and tidy accommodation.

Matt S,
