Casa Do Lagar is a charming, comfortable and private country house close to Ericeira, a great whitewashed fishing village turned surfing mecca with tons of great beaches. Away from noise and buzz, a quiet rural retreat.
It houses up to 8 people in two separate houses. There is a pool, several outside seating areas and lemon, olive and fig trees in the garden. Pingpong table, games and lots more. Well equipped house with high standard all over.
Casa Do Lagar is a country house located 30 minutes from fun and gorgeous Lisbon and around 10 minutes from tons of beaches and Ericeira, a great whitewashed fishing village turned surfing mecca (great English speaking surf schools for kids and adults). Lots of other sights nearby such as the world heritage site Sintra, the bustling seaside town Cascais, the palace in Mafra, wineries and much more.
Casa Do Lagar houses up to 8-9 people (main house + guest house) and is a charming old stone house where the nearby farmers made their wine, but was recently renovated to a modern and high standard. There is a pool, several outside seating areas, including an outside barbecue, as well as lemon, olive and fig trees in the garden. The grass is in the garden is of the rough kind, and the layout is sloped. Guests are welcome to use any herbs and vegetables from the garden. A café in the village, 5 minutes by foot, sells fresh fresh bread, cheeses and fruits & vegetables.
The bedrooms: the main house has three bedrooms: one with a double bed (master bedroom), one with two single beds, and one much simpler room in the space of the old wine press which also has a double bed (good for kids as it is also next to the pingpong table!). There is also a sofa bed in the living room. The guest house has a double bed and a small sofa bed (for a child). There is one bathroom in the main house and one in the guest house.
You will have the whole house to yourselves. Garden and pool are also only yours to enjoy; you are not sharing these spaces with anyone else.
Interaction with guests
We (unfortunately!) do not live in Portugal full time but are available by email and phone for any questions. Tovim, our house manager, lives nearby and he will welcome you, enable check in and check out and help with any other needs.
Other things to note
Although close to towns and cities, Casa do Lagar is truly at the country side. The neighbors are mostly farmers (and a few sheep!). With the rural location come the normal flora and fauna, i.e. there will likely be some bugs, a tractor sometimes plowing the fields, and a rooster doing his thing. Nothing out of the ordinary at all, just to note. The bedrooms have fitted mosquito screens and from time to time it's useful to spray the bedrooms an hour or so before going to bed.
We hope that you will feel at home and enjoy our house as much as we do. We also hope you will be friendly and respect our nice neighbours!
Hello, I am Lisa, Swedish but currently living in New York City with my husband and three boys. We love to explore the world and have lived and worked in Guatemala, Zimbabwe, Belgium and New York.
We have always dreamt of a house in Portugal and recently found the perfect place! We spend many weeks there ourselves during the year but also rent it out when we are not there. We want the house to be enjoyed!
