Casinha da Avo is located centrally within Sessimbra and very close to the beach. The arrival procedures were very smooth and everything worked really well. We didn't meet Marie or John but the communication through email etc was brilliant and everything went very well. The accommodation is really nice and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The views from the balcony are wonderful. Sessimbra has many great places to eat and we were very well fed during our stay. The streets around the property were very narrow and not ideal for driving our hire car. We therefore parked our car on the free car park which is not too far away and it worked out quite well. The only problem is the steep stair case. If you have difficulty going up and down stairs then it may be difficult for you but other than that I would fully recommend this property. We loved it.

We loved our stay at Casinha do Avo. Clean, well equiped flat. Well maintained. Best private terrasse in town! Easy and pragmatic contact with the owners. Nice little welcome basket. The flat's location is very central (great for walking everywhere within the village, but not great for parking your car).

Fabulous location - beach is very close. Property had everything that you needed, kitchen was very well-equipped. We alternated between eating out and cooking in. Very close to a small supermarket, bakery and ice-cream shop. Very short walk to lots of restaurants and the town market. Spoilt for choice with excellent restaurants. Terrace was fabulous with a great view out to sea.

What an amazing location! I spent a week in April here with my wife, her sister and partner. The view from the terrace was spectacular. We particularly enjoyed trying out the various recommended restaurants, our favourite being Casa Mateus and we also liked Black Coffee, the bar and coffee shop. I enjoyed the easy swimming and my wife enjoyed a harder walk through the woods to the castle. Another highlight was buying the local foods from the patisserie behind the apartment, the fresh fruit and veg market and rotisserie chicken from the supermarket. We also took a trip into Lisbon for a day of sightseeing and shopping. Thank you very much Maria and John for a cultured and convivial few days.

We stayed for the weekend with 4 students, we are currently studying in Lisbon. The apartment was amazing and a really nice place to go for some relaxing! It was nice and modern furnished and had all the equipment you need. The location is great, super close to the beach and there are a lot of restaurants. Sesimbra looked like a nice city, but we really noticed that it was not the high season. Some restaurants were closed on Friday, but despite of that we could find a lot of other nice places to have dinner. I would recommend this apartment for everyone. Especially the big terrace is a big plus!

We decided to go to Sesimbra in Portugal for New Year's Eve, as we had heard it was a great place to celebrate the end of the year. During the time we stayed, the weather was in the mid teens, which makes it one of the hottest places in Europe during the winter months. We stayed at Casinha da Avo which is a delightful apartment on the seafront overlooking the water. The apartment was clean and modern and provides all the amenities necessary. The balcony gives you stunning views looking over the water and the beach & is within close proximity to fantastic bars and restaurants. Our stay at Casinha da Avo was fantastic and we would highly recommend staying here if you visit Sesimbra. The owners were excellent and always willing to give advice when needed.

This was a great location for both relaxing or exploring the local area. Despite it being the end of the season there was plenty to do and see. Lisbon was easy to get to on local transport. We found the accommodation both comfortable and clean with breath taking views. It was an ideal place to spend time before winter sets in. I hope to visit again.

This was our second stay at Casinha da Avo and it was delightful. The apartment is spotlessly clean and has everything you could possibly want for a stay in Sesimbra. Would highly recommend.

Clean, modern and quiet apartment. Fully equipped kitchen and comfy beds. The apartment is located in the centre of Sesimbra on the beach - could not ask for a better location. Very easy to get to from Lisbon. Some very beautiful bays within walking distance. Excellent restaurants with an abundance of sea food. A bakery and wee supermarket a stone's throw away. Communication was very helpful, prompt and fluid.
