Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Setubal. L'appartement
de Rory est vraiment conforme a sa description. De la terrasse,
la vue sur la baie est magnifique ! L'équipement pour faire la cuisine
est parfait ! Silvia nous a gentiment accueilli et nous a laisser des bons produits, merci !
The apartment and surroundings are amazing and Rory made sure that the whole process worked perfectly. The aparment is very well equipped with everything we could need during our stay. Rory's friend Silvia met us when we arrived, had bought some food and gave a lot of helpful tips.
Precioso apartamento,amplio,limpio y con unas vistas espectaculares a Setúbal.
Provisto de todo lo necesario para pasar unas vacaciones impresionantes.
Amplísima terraza con BBQ incluída.
La hospitalidad hizo que nos sintiéramos como en casa,Dilvia estuvo pendiente de que estuviéramos perfectas durante nuestra estancia ,comunicándose vía mail ( incluso nos prepararon un kit de bienvenida a base de quesos,dulces y frutas).
Definitivamente lo recomendaría al 100%,unas vacaciones increíbles.
The apartment is amazing. You have everything you need and the views from the balcony are awsome. Rory wasn't in Setubal so Silvia attend us. She was incredibly nice with us giving us all the information we needed. The appartment is even better than picture shows. The location is also very good, in a very quite place and only ten minutes walking to the zone of restaurants and bars. I really recommend it!
Spacious, clean, fully equipped apartment in a beautiful area of Portugal. Balcony wonderful, location perfect for Setubal, surrounding beaches and Troia. Great pre-arrival info from Rory and more attention than deserved from the lovely Silvia! Really exceeded our expectations. Thank you Rory!
Nous avons été accueillis par Silvia, qui nous a recu avec biscuits, fromage, pain... Elle était au rendez-vous comme a l'heure prévue
Our stay was great!! We did not get to know Rory, but his friend Silvia welcomed us with a selection of regional products such as queijo (cheese) fruits , bread and sweets. She helped us plannng our trips (f.e. dolphin watching) since we dont speak portuguese. Apartment was as described, clean and had an awesome view. We would highly recommend rorys apartment and would go there for a second time for sure. Obrigado
Sorry about this, Annika, Please accept my apologies. We will make sure that it does not happen again. You are of course welcome to return any time. Rory
Had a great time staying at Rory's apt. It was located maybe a 5-10 minute walk from the city center, had a great balcony & view, was spacious and nicely furnished. Would highly recommend!
We did not meet Rory - he was abroad - but his friend Silvia gave us a great service. She even provided us with food and wine, which was really great and made us feel at home immediately. Rory's apartment is a very comfortable place, with everything you can imagine within reach. It's much more than a holliday-apartment, with books and art and souvenirs all over the place. And the view from the terrace is simply stunning. Don't hesitate. If you want to visit Sétubal, Rory's place is a very good choice.
I can only agree with other guests about Rory`s delightful apartment so it is really difficult to find negatives but here goes:
Bedside lights only in in one bedroom, mirror only in one bedroom and shock horror, NO TEAPOT ! But being British we kept calm and carried on.
Seriously, the above should not put anyone off, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Silvia is the best.
Rory et ses collègues sont maintenant des habitués qui connaissent la maison, rencontre annuelle toujours agréable et intéressante, on échange les nouvelles, revenez quand vous voulez.
Rory et Elisabeth sont des hôtes très agréables, à recommander sans hésitation.
Rory , his son and his collegs where very thankfull , supporting and surprising guests . They where supporting me even before the show..
They liked candy and marmelade out of the cabinets.
It was a great experience to allways please them with the extra guests. and we allways found a solution !!! Thank you for that !!!
The only Thing was that I could hardly get the teastane out of my sink but we will find a solution next time .They where very quired guests.Thank you for all.
Je n'ai pas rencontré Rori et sa famille en direct, car j'étais moi-même en voyage, pourtant nous avons communiqué très facilement et de façon très agréable.
J'ai reçu une photo de la neige tombée dans le jardin et
J'ai même eu la très bonne surprise en rentrant de trouver des macarons, deschocolats et du vin en cadeaux !
J'espère avoir à nouveau l'occasion de les héberger à la maison
Wow! Setubal was and is a great town within easy reach from Lisbon airport. Kat and I arrived late in the evening and were met by Rory's Friend Silvia for a quick tour of the apartment. The apartment was very spacious, brilliantly laid out and nicely furnished. The kitchen was fully loaded with everything we needed and more! The reason we didn't use the kitchen too much was because of the fantastic view from the balcony. We spent most of our time out in the fresh air cooking fish (sardines) and ribs (black pig) from the local market on the BBQ in the corner.
Once we managed to draw ourselves away from the fantastic balcony we made good use of Rory's bikes. We took them up the coast road to several beaches as well as using the car ferry to take us across the estuary to Troia. The beaches were all sandy and great for spending a lazy afternoon in the sun. The furthest we cycled was about 8 miles to find a beach where we enjoyed a cold drink on the warm sand taking in the light Atlantic breeze.
We only ate out a couple of times due to enjoying the BBQ and local products the market had to offer. However, we enjoyed eating in a chicken restaurant called Duartes dos Frangos. We ate a feast of crispy roast chicken with their house red wine. A top meal and light on the wallet too. We also had the privilege of eating in an excellent restaurant called the Champagneria where we drank an excellent bottle of Portuguese sparkling wine and dined on a starter of oysters with potato and seafood main. A beautiful evening and honestly some of the best food I have had the pleasure of eating. (Rory recommended both places and so can we!)
The apartment was in a great location being a 10 minute walk down to the main high street. We stayed for just over a week and didn't manage to see all that we wanted. We will definitely be back! We are already looking forward to enjoying the balcony again, grazing on soft cheese and cooking up a seafood feast on the BBQ. Highly recommended!

The first time I walked into Rory's apartment, I was just amazed by the wonderful view and the airy spacious feel of the rooms. Rory has gone to a lot of thought and attention to detail to make it stylish, easy to live in and comfortable. Wherever you are in the living room or the kitchen, you see the sea and the Arrabida National Park.
It is tempting to stay in but there is so much to do and see - the wonderful market, the choice of beaches, each different, within walking distance or a short drive, a walk in the old town, cafes, restaurants, walks on the Arrabida, bike rides - just spoiled for choice.
