Joao ha confermato di essere una persona speciale, super premuroso dal principio di grande aiuto e sempre disponibile.
Ha reso la nostra vacanza a Lisbona indimenticabile, lo raccomando vivamente a chiunque pensi di visitare lisbona.
Estadia maravilhosa, ficaram por nos receber mesmo sendo depois de 3 hs do horário combinado. O apartamento é muito limpo e bem decorado. Tinha de tudo, entre equipamentos, roupas de cama e banho, utilidades de cozinha e materiais de higiene e limpeza. Nos decepcionaram com comida na geladeira para um bom lanche, uma vez que chegamos depois das 23 h. Atenciosos em toda a estadia, não faltou nada para ser melhor. Recomendo a estadia, nos sentimos em casa.
Our host were so kind! They met us at the door and spent 40 minutes going over everything in the flat and area we needed to know. The home was comfortable and very cozy. The flat was located in a good area and close driving distance to historic Sintra. we enjoyed our stay here!
wir fühlten uns sehr wohl in der geräumigen wohnung. sintra, die strände und lissabon sind von der wohnung aus gut mit dem auto zu erreichen. die vielen guten hinweise und empfehlungen von unseren gastgebern waren uns immer eine große hilfe. herzlichen dank und liebe grüße an joao und maria.
The apartment is beyond praise. It has everything not only for comfortable staying for few days but for long-time living. Very comfortable. Once we arrived to apartment there was a little bit of food that has helped us to have a meal on the road. Very nice kind of attention from João Carlos. Conveniently located. Not far from the station, which takes you in 5 minutes to the center of the city of Sintra, and 30 minutes to downtown Lisbon. What is very important for those who rent a car - there is a free parking near the house. We could always find there a place to park the car. From the apartment is convenient to travel to the main highway.
João Carlos and Maria are very hospitable hosts. They met us at the airport. They were waiting until we have arranged to rent a car and showed us the way to the apartment. They have shown us and told where to go, how to get food from supermarket, gas from station and told all the details that need to pay attention while you are in Lisbon.
Maria and João Carlos also offered us assistance in returning from the airport to the city, when we passed the car. But we were uncomfortable bother them, so we did it ourselves.
On the day of our departure, because the apartment was not rented, we were asked to stay in it until the time is convenient for us, but we had a train to Porto at 12.00 so Maria and João arrived at 9 am and helped us to get to the train station in Lisbon. They made a small tour, showed us the city, and showed us the place which we did not get - observation point.
Thank you for your hospitality. Looking forward to seeing you in our city, to be able to thank you enough for all.
We wish prosperity to your business, and a lot of guests in your apartment.
they were really friendly, already waited for us at the time we arrived, showed us everything, gave us a lot of information what to do and see and were always available for us - in any case.
we went there as strangers but left as friends.. felt really welcome, even the fridge was already a little bit filled with nice things to eat for us - we really enjoyed staying at their place - all was great. definitely recommend it to others!! :-)
concerning the noise someone else mentioned (because of the school nearby) - we had no problem at all, travelled with a small child.. we didn't even hear the kids playing.. so that's nothing to be worried about :)
Joao & Maria were excellent hosts. They are warm & friendly, & sincerely interested in making our stay enjoyable. They had purchased some food for our use as well. The apartment was large, very clean and comfortable.
They had maps & pamphlets for various sites of interest for our use. Instructions on how to get to their place initially were clear & concise, & free parking was available near the apartment. They took the time to insure we knew where nearby restaurants, markets, & the train station were located. The train station is a 20 minute walk away, but a quick taxi ride back after a long day in Lisboa.
Thank you so much Joao & Maria! It was a pleasure meeting you!
