“Perfect villa for a family holiday”
Reviewed August 9, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have just returned from 2 weeks in this beautiful villa. It is absolutely huge and the swimming pool and pool table were perfect to keep a 16 year old daughter and 18 year old son happy! Thank you for allowing us to rent your lovely villa for our holiday. A car is essential to get out and about. We were a little disappointed with Ericera and Mafra, but enjoyed visiting Sintra, the Alfama district of Lisbon, the zoo and aquarium, Cabo da Roca, Cascais and Sobreiro. A visitors book would be useful in the villa so people can share suggestions of where to visit etc, but I will be hard pushed to find another villa that equals this one for our next holiday.

Liked best: The size of the villa, pool table and swimming pool
Liked least: I answered no to security deposit question but only returned yesterday so would expect it yet! Otherwise I would just sau that the iron and ironing board need replacing and there was no plug for upstairs bathroom and no safe to secure valuables.

“Breathtakingly Good”
Reviewed July 25, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We want to thank you very much for our holiday in Vila Duas Vistas. It is a beautiful house and met our needs perfectly. Tony and Nanda were great hosts and I’d be grateful if you would pass on our thanks and best wishes to them. We had a great holiday visiting Ericeira, Mafra, Sintra, Obidos and Lisbon. The villa was amazing for just relaxing and the walk to the fort in Zambujal itself was interesting. We would certainly recommend Duas Vistas to friends and hope to return ourselves at some point.

“In the words of our very happy kids........ FABAROONEE !!!!”
Reviewed June 4, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We just returned home from our 1 week stay near the town of Ericiera and the very first thing we said when we woke up the next day in a very windy & wet Lancashire was how much we missed our little piece of Portuguese paradise.

This was our second trip back to the area and I have to say that it will definately not be our last. The Villa Duas Vistas is simply the very best we have had the fortune to stay in, Helga is the epitomey of what a perfect host should be, as are her lovely agents Tony & Nanda, a lovely couple who not only keep the house in tip top perfect condition and cleanliness but also go to greast lenghs to ensure you have the perfect stay. The many personal touches make this a unique experience and were all very much appreciated. and we explored the many amazing beaches all within a few minutes in the car, enjoying family cuddles on the sand watching the sunset... Even if you are close to everything, a car in my opinion, is a necessity here.
As mentioned, the town of Ericiera is just a couple of miles along a quiet road, and has a very good selection of restaurants, all the ones we used were amazingly good value, and I was pleasantly surprised at the price difference from down the road at Sintra and Cascais where you pay a lot more for a lot less (IMHO). Mafra town is worth a visit too, with a good selection of shops and things to do.
The villa beautiful, very well equipped and meticulously kept, and a most welcome sight every night you come home from a day out exploring the surfing beaches and towns. The pool is beyond joyous to have as we swam in it everyday and night (under the stars) The children literally lived in the pool. If you're looking for a home away from home this is a RARE find. However, be warned after a stay here you might leave a bit of your heart there... I know I did.

Thank you again Helga, Tony & Nanda for acommodating us.. we shall return.... and soon... x

“Fantastic, the villa had everything we needed and more!”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Thankyou Helga for all your speedy responses when we booked and thankyou to Tony and Nanda who are lovely and were so helpful on our arrival and departure. The house and garden areas are beautiful and spacious. Everything was clean and beautifully decorated. It is only a short drive to the beaches, various supermarkets, and restaurants but we spent most days at the villa it was as my youngest said 'like a really good hotel, but nicer'. He wasn't wrong. There were all the main things you expect in a villa such as utensils and cooking pots etc but there were extra touches like washing up liquid and soap, plenty of towels and bedding that smelt really fresh and cushions for the loungers. The pool had a deep and shallow end and was super clean and we spent most of our time in and out of it. There is an outdoor shower which was really useful when we went for our run/walk up the country lanes behind the house before jumping back into the pool. We just felt so at home in Villa 'Duas Vistas' it is hard to put into a few words how lovely it was and all the little touches that made it so wonderful. I almost forgot the great pool table and board games. We have already recommended it to friends and we will go back - a week was just too short!

“A home in paradise - simply beautiful!”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

My family and I stayed here for 2 weeks in early June, it was simply perfect! There was so much space, the villa is huge! Set out over 3 levels and beautifully furnished and decorated. We spent much of our family time in the recreation room where there is an entertaining area and pool table, and of course the kids loved the swimming pool. We had most of our dinners in the big terrace, and the extra kitchen downstairs was a real bonus for the barbecues.

The Villa was very private, I particularly enjoyed lazing around in the hammock, but the roof top terrace was my personal favourite. The countryside and sea views were superb!

The beach nearby - Foz do Lizandro beach - has a river that flows into the sea and its waters were perfect for the children to play in. Ericeira is just a short drive away and we loved the shopping. Its worthwhile checking the mini golf and tennis recreation centre. We also did the tour to Mafra Palace which was good, though the town itself is quiet.

A big thank you to the Ground Managers, Tony and Nanda, they were both friendly and helpful. They came by to water the plants and clean the pool whenever necessary.

I look forward to coming back here with my family for our holidays next year.
