About this listing

Welcome to "Casa da Maria", your little home in a paradise out of time and space! The house is located in the cliffs near Cabo Espichel (Serra da Azoia), in a protected National Park, 15 min away from Sesimbra and 45 min away from Lisbon.

The space

"Casa da Maria" is a traditional house that used to belong to Maria, the old famous baker of our small village. Maria used to bake bread all week in a stone-oven and nowadays the bread of Azoia became famous! Back in the day, life was quite simple here... Maria would bake bread, take care of her donkey and spend time among her beloved flowers. Now you have the chance to spend an amazing holiday at this same place, where it all started, right by the ocean!

The nature around is absolutely amazing... at each turn you can find a different climbing spot, a new cave, or a secret beach with dolphins jumping on the horizon. The paths are flanked by colourful wild flowers and the seagulls will accompany you along the way. If you love nature and peace, this is the place to be. You can go surfing, climbing, hiking, kayaking, cave exploring, biking, etc etc. The calmness and safety of the area makes it an ideal place for children to play and explore the nature outside, for adults to relax and enjoy a glass of wine at the sunset, and even for pets to run around free.

"Casa da Maria" is a cozy, simple, little home. All the furniture was upcycled by us, which means all the pieces are unique and have a special touch. We made everything with great care and love for you! This house is designed as a retreat place for guests to connect with nature and themselves, so it is not a luxury house. You must enjoy simplicity to feel comfy here :)
Big Room - the big room has view to the backyard and has 2 beds: one king-size bed and a single bed, so three people can sleep comfortably!
Small Room - the small room has view to the front garden and has a double bed. A soft curtain separates it from the hall.
The living room has a super-comfy couch and a table to share delicious meals and great moments.
The kitchen is equipped with stove, oven, fridge and everything you need to prepare delicious meals.
The bathroom is spacious and has a nice bathtub and a washing machine.
In "Casa da Maria" there is Wifi and hot water, but no microwave and no TV, as we believe they are not very good for our health.

The neighbours have some chickens, goats and sheep, so it is possible to get some local biological eggs and cheese, if you would like.

Rita is an amazing host! She is ready to help and would faster respond to my messages arranging what was needed. On the other hand, the location of the house was quite frustrating, as it is not in Sesimbra, but in Azoia and it is not surrounded by the sea. In that way, it is a good idea to check out the exact location and surroundings before any booking, as the price may not correspond to what is promised. Anyway, the local experience, Rita s a host and the city vibes are amazing.

Thank you Carla for staying with us and helping us to improve details in our little home. It was a pleasure to host you. We are really sorry that Carla was disappointed with the location. We mention a couple times in our profile that Casa da Maria is in a quiet village (Serra da Azoia), 15 min from Sesimbra. But it is always good to highlight it again for future guests! As the house is located in the municipality of Sesimbra, Airbnb assumes the location to be in Sesimbra. But it is in Serra da Azoia, 12 km away of Sesimbra! We also encourage guests to ask us as many questions as they wish before booking. We are happy to answer everything! :) In this case, Carla did an instant booking without any questions, so we had no chance to clarify the location for her. Apart from this detail, we really loved to spend time with Clara's family, exploring secret beaches together, playing with our baby cats and having all the kids having fun together :)

This house is beautiful and felt like home. Rita was really friendly and helpful all the time we were staying there. Perfect host! It's location is perfect if you want to explore the beaches in that area as well as it's a 20 min drive to Sesimbra. We would definitely come back to this house! ❤️

Rita fue encantadora y muy atenta desde el momento de hacer la reserva, siempre pendiente de cualquier cosa que pudiéramos necesitar. La casa está limpia pero tanto el mobiliario como los electrodomésticos no estaban en muy buen estado. Si buscas tranquilidad es una opción muy buena pero no hay prácticamente nada en menos de 15 min de coche.

A casa de Rita nos surpreendeu de várias formas. Num lugar tranquilo longe do movimento da cidade, próximo ao mar, é simples e muito aconchegante. Nota-se o cuidado e preciosismo da anfitria em cada detalhe (Rita deixou até um vasinho com flores naturais!) Tivemos bons momentos e ficamos com vontade de voltar! Recomendo para quem quer sossego!
