“A REALLY MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE”

Villa Cecilia is in the most fantastic location of Praia Grande and enables you to experience a true sense of Portuguese life. The Villa has amazing views, easy access to Praia das Macas, with a bus stop just outside the gates giving easy acces to Sintra and Lisbon. The fantastic beach of Praia Grande is just a few minutes walk away and has a large swimming pool, cafes, restaurants,( Nortarda and El Fundo are excellent), surfing/ body boarding activities and cliff top walks. The sunsets are stunning and can be best appreciated while enjoying a meal or drink at one of the restaurants.
The villa is well equipped with more than adequate bathroom facilities, spacious bedrooms, kitchen and lounge, a great pool, sauna, gym, laundry room and outdoor cooking area all of which contributed to a relaxing enjoyable holiday for our large family. My teenage grandson had the basement to himself which he loved.
The staff were helpful and did a really good job, answered all our questions and endeavoured to sort out any small problems straight away, (ie iron not working).
The provision of some brochures about Sintra and other attractions together with bus timetables would have been helpful as we had never been to the area before, but once we got our bearings it was easy. A car is only essential for large shopping trips and getting to see the more out of the way places like small roadside markets and picturesque villages.
You can get all your provisions in Praia das Macas, a good butcher ,baker, fish market and mini market at reasonable prices.
Villa Cecilia is an ideal base for a family with a wide range of ages and I would definitely go back in the future.
