Candida was a fantastic host with good communication skills. The apt is 35 minutes outside Lisbon by train and a perfect spot for getting away from the hustle of the city. The apt is fully equipped but could use a space heater for those cloudy cool days.
Candida was a most gracious host. She helped us find our way, and helped with various things in the apartment at a moment's notice, including ordering cabs for us. We loved the area especially the little bakeries, the park and the winding streets.
I'd rent it again anytime!
This was a great location in Monte Estoril as it was close to train station, taxi, cafe, shops and short walk to beach promenade to Cascais.
We enjoyed our stay here and would love to return. Candida was a lovely host and had comfortable accommodations.
Lovely flat, in a great location. Handy for the shops, the beach and easy to get to from Lisbon by train, station 5 mins away. Flat has everything you would want and two restaurants and an Indian takeaway that does ok Portuguese food around the corner. Lovely place for a quiet yet convenient time away. Candida is a lovely host too.
I spent two weeks in Candida's apartment. I felt at home at any time. In the flat nothing is missing. The location is perfect for trips to Lisbon and Sintra. A small supermarket and bakery are just around the corner.
From the first contact to departure everything was perfect. I felt welcome. Candida is a very friendly host. I hope to come again next holiday.
it was the second time this year that we spended our holidays in Candidas house. it was like coming home, we felt very comfortable and welcome. Everything was clean and fine, Candida is a very friendly and charming host. We will surely come back next year, we think it is the best adress in monte estoril to spend wonderful holidays (especially with a little child).
We had a very relaxing and laid-back fortnight in Candida's apartment. The accommodation is very tastefully decorated and located conveniently close to local stores and the beach. Candida was a delightful and attentive host and we would highly recommend her flat to anyone interested.

Very nice apartment in a quiet area. Perfect for families. I came with my mother and grand mother. Mini market near by . Very close to the beach. I would recommend a car. Estoril is a lovely place to visit and not full of drunken and disorderly people. The beaches are clean and I would recommend it.
My wife, son, and I stayed in the apartment for eight nights in early June, and found it excellent in every respect. We traveled by train from Lisbon which took approximately thirty minutes and cost 2 Euro 40 each.
The apartment is five minutes walk from Monte Estoril train station, is well furnished, and very comfortable. It is located in a quiet cul de sac with access via a short (no longer than 50m) though moderately steep hill. There are two supermarkets, and a bakery within a very short walking distance all of which sell goods at reasonable prices. Immediately around the corner from the apartment approximately two minutes walk away is a small restaurant that does good food at reasonable prices (approximately 40 euros for three adults including drinks). Next to the restaurant is an Indian takeaway that also does excellent food (approximately 20 Euros for three adult meals). The best bar we found was Busby's which is approximately five minutes walk from the apartment (walk past the park when heading for the railway station and look to the left. The road splits in two, take the downward heading road, and the bar is on the right). The bar has an excellent view of the sea and charges three Euro a pint which is fair for the general area.
The apartment is approximately fifteen minutes stroll along the sea front from Caiscais where you will find a large number of bars and restaurants. Caiscais is also a very pretty place. The centre of Estoril is about ten minutes walk away, but we found little of interest there.
The only problem we had was a minor problem with the bathroom light. However when we reported it to Candina her husband came around immediately, and remedied the problem.
In conclusion we would definitely use the apartment again, and would highly recommend it
We had fantastic holidays in this nice flat. Beach, city is reachable in 10 minutes. The beautiful centre of cascais is nearby, only 20 minutes walk at the promenade.
The flat was very clean and everything you need ist available (dishwasher, washing machine, wlan...) Candida placed nice decorations to feel comfortable and "at home". The neighbours in the house are very friendly and always ready to help. Especially in contact with our three year old son, the people were very kindly and sympathetic.
We have to thank Candida for beeing our host!
