Other Things to Note
Two lovely donkeys are part of the family so most likely guests will also interact with them when they're near the house and may feed them!
Great mood and happiness!!! (Boa disposição e alegria!!!). Basically I expect my guests to leave the house in the way they've found it when they arrive. Some things you don't say it or write about, just wait for the common sense to work. I do my best to have things very clean and cosy and respect all my guests - the result has been very positive, all of them have checked-out as dear friends!!!
My first booking with airbnb and it couldn't be a better start!
The hospitality of the hosts is outstanding! The breakfast and the accomodation as well, are perfekt.
the rooms are clean and you'll find a quite and relaxing place close to the centre of Lisbon.
Tanks a lot for this wonderfull experience!
The place was very very nice and we felt like home. Maria & Alice were very nice and wellcoming. We have enjoyed the evening chats, the tea from the home grown herbs, small surprisess... All of it :)
The house is outside Lisbon, but you can take a bus to the city, which is quick and the bus stop is only a 10-15 minutes away.
As it is outside of town - we've slept like babies :D
The breakfast was full and tasty.
Really loved the hosts and the place!
We stayed in the tree room, and it was very clean, nice and cozy
Friendly hostess! It is a nice and clean room and perfect if you want to stay close to Lisbon but not in the middle of it. A 10 minute walk takes you to the bus and within 15 minutes you are in Lisbon.
And we really liked the little surprises :)
We had three lovely days in Alcachete with Maria & Alice who shares their beautiful house with us, with a lovely garden and the goats & sheep & chickens were the new friends of my 4 year old. Maria was very helpfull with information about almost whole Portugal and especially the area of Alcachete, but also in helping me finding my way to the airport at night to pick up my mother! We just loved the Dolphin tour in Setubal! I really liked the small town and river beach near Lisboa and got to know a nice new part of Portugal. Would recommend this stay for everyone who likes to be close to Lisboa but don't want to be in the middle of it and also wants to experience a bit of its surroundings.
Although we came in late due to our flight was delayed, Maria awaited us with tea and sweets. The house is very nice and in the outskirts of Alcochete. our room was perfect with the bathroom next door.
maria gave some tips on a nice restaurant in town and has more information on the region.
She is a real nice host and we recommend to stay at her place!
Lovely village with local culture & history at Alcochete. Very helpful from Maria.
She recommends the seafood restaurant is excellent with budget price.
Very tidy & comfortable house with fantasy experiences here.
I have been an active airbnb user for the last 2+ years, but this was the first time that i have booked a home stay. And i must say that the experience was wonderful.
Maria and Alice are great hosts. They made me feel welcome and completely at ease. No overbearing, no pressure but relaxed and pleasant.
I have decided to go to Alcochete as one of the prime birding areas of Portugal starts there (the Tagus estuary), but was taken in by the wonderful atmosphere of the town, the waterfront walking and the general feeling of relaxation.
I have enjoyed my experience thoroughly and would recommend it to those who want to have a pleasant base to explore Lisbon area, to get acquainted with portuguese culture, or just have a mini-break in quiet and beautiful surroundings.
Thank’s for visiting my house. It would be an enormous pleasure for me to host you in Alcochete and show you around this beautiful small village, where one can taste some of Portuguese best traditional customs. I’m a tourism fan and do belief that exchange and knowledge of one’s culture will foster and deepen good relations between people and countries. I’ll be waiting for you! Maria
