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.

A nice, clean apartment on the fourth (fifth?) floor. No elevator since it is located in an old neighbourhood. No light in the hallway so you have to climb the stairs in darkness or use your cell phone as a flashlight. The neighbourhood is in an old district so the streets are not well lit. It could be a problem for a single person, however, my friend and I did not have any problems.
The host was nice. I would likely recommend the apartment to others although no light on the stairs was annoying. Location is good - about 10-15 min. walk to to the touristy area.
It was a pleasure to stay here. The place is right in the old city centre and you can reach is very well by bus as well by foot. Richard was the perfect host, very friendly and helpful and gave us some good tips for the area.
Richard was lovely and easy go person, given us very welcome to Lisbon.
House was spot on. well located, clean e equipped.
We definitely recommend this property and the Host.
It is a nice flat close to many beautiful places of lisboa. it was clean in the flat, kitchen and bathroom were well equipped. from the flat we had a nice overview to the surroundings. no lights in the corridor of the house. the space of the flat was a bit limited, the bed wasnt very comfortable.
the owner was very friendly and helpful.
The place has a character and situated in the heart of Lisbon so every time you coming out you feel the spirit of old town and feels like local. House is one of old and historical building which is so many in the City.
And the place is big and has all modern amenities so you don't have a problem if you want to cook or enjoy hot shower.
Very interesting flat
Richard is a great host,
It was easy to get the keys, the appartment had everything you need like towls, coffee machine etc. Not the newest equipment but sufficient. The location of the appartment is great. It's right at one of the most poular view points of Lissabon with lots of places to eat or just go out in the neighborhood. Even though the appartment is at one of the hot spots to go out it is very quiet. The appartment itself and the furniture has come to age and it is darker than it looks on the fotos.
