The Space

The spacious room sleeps 3, and is perfect for a couple (with or without a child), or 3 good friends!
The house is 5 minutes from one of the best beaches in Portugal, at the edge of a rural village, with restaurantes, bars & shops.
The surrounding nature invites for long walks, as there are infinite amounts of sights of interest to visit, for instance the lighthouse at Cabo da Roca (around 3 km away) which is the most Western Point of mainland Europe, and of course the many palaces, castles and monasteries dotted around the Sintra Mountain...too much to chose from, to mention here!
The beaches are all perfect for various watersports... surfing, bodyboard, kitesurf, windsurf, diving & spearfishing are all popular sports amongs the people here, and if you would like to try something new, it can be arranged easily.
For the more relaxed holidaymakers, there are ofcourse many less strenuous activities to enjoy, for instance naturewalks on the cliffs above the coastline, walking either North (where you can see 120 million year old dinosaur-footprints near Praia Grande!) or walking South (where you can reach the "wild" beach, Praia da Ursa, and Cabo da Roca itself, and get a certificate to prove you were at the most Western Point!): or you can go shopping in "Forum",Sintra, the newly built & biggest shoppingcenter in Portugal, or in nearby Cascais (Portugal's richest area, therefore lots of shops!), dining out on delicious freshly caught seafood, sunbathing or barbecue on the beach...or just relaxing on the terrace with a glass of good Local Portuguese wine...

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • La chambre très confortable et lumineuse, le lit est douillet, et la vue est époustouflante !!
    La maison est très bien située : 15 min à pied de la plage, à 5 min d’un resto très sympa.
    Le petit déjeuner est généreux et varié.
    Quant à Marianne, son sens de l’accueil est inoubliable ! Une personne lumineuse, souriante, charmante ! Un pur bonheur !!

  • Pleasant small town (15min from Sintra by car), with nice beaches around :
    - Praia da Adraga where there is a very good restaurant! (but to swim it's not so good because there was a storm and now there is less sand and more stones)
    - Praia da Ursa : big beach with lots of sand
    The house is nice, especially the guests room which is big, well decorated and very clean (in front of Marianne's room: it could be anoying if you stay a long time but for us it wasn't a problem).
    The dogs and cat are nice with guests.
    Marianne is very kind and helpful / we also met some of her portuguese friends (very kind also!!).
    Complete and good breakfast!

  • Marianne has a lovely house in one of the beautifulst regions and villages I've ever been! The house is only 15 minutes from the beach, but we used to walk half an hour in the wonderful nature to get to the beach. There are beautiful hiking paths, like for example going from Praia Grande (from the dinosaur traces) to Cabo da Roca, or from Almocageme to Sintra, just ask Marianne she'll give you some tipps :) She's a really caring, friendly, kind and discret person, who always tries to help you if you need it. Her house is very funny, and the room is big enough for 3 maximum 4 people, clean and the same as on the pictures. We could use the kitchen to cook our dinners and we could even watch TV during the world cup. The breakfast is ok and the rest of her house is clean enough, but not for people who put a lot of attention to cleanness. Her dogs and her cat are sooo cool and we both really enjoyed our trip in Almocageme with the very freindly and easy Marianne.
    Thank you Marianne for everything, maybe we'll come back to Almocageme one day,

    best wishes,

    Viola and Noah.

  • Marianne's place is exactly as described: in a quiet, beautiful village on the coast, from where you can easily walk to the beach. Super nice flat with two friendly dogs and a cat, huge breakfast, and most importantly a very sweet welcome from the host, who has been all the time very helpful and flexible. Definitely a place to come back to!

  • One word: AMAZING.
    A warm welcome, a house full of life, a person full of energy, a peacefull view...Wonderfull ...Was happy to discover her world and so disapointed that I didn't stay longer to discover the HOST. She is wondefull and really concerned of the way you'll stay at her place. She wants to please you in order to spend unfogettable holidays! And she reaches it:)
    Don't hesitate to contact her... ;)
    Just a note: she is not in Sintra, you have to take a bus , or rent a car to get there...

  • Really warm and welcoming host in a cute town with beautiful walks on offer. Just what we were looking for on the road between Sintra and Cascais.

I am from Denmark, lived in England for 20 years where I was self-employed, running a small alternative fashion shop selling clothes, music etc. Moved to Portugal 6 years ago, first travelling around the country in my van, discovering the best parts, and now living in Almocageme, in the "foothills of the Mountain of the Moon", where me & my 2 dogs feel at home... We love to go walking or running in the beautiful nature aound here, and spend several hours every day, doing just that!
