Once upon a time a horse house, this cottage has been fully renewed to meet modern standards of comfort, still keeping its uniqueness intact.
Enjoy the outdoors, spread out in patios and over 1000 m2 of bushy land overlooking the sea.

The space

Casa das Portas (House of the Doors) was once upon a time, almost 200 years ago, an Inn. So… I guess it has now come back to its primordial use, after all these years!

The horse house has been full renewed to modern standards of comfort, still keeping its uniqueness intact.

At ground level, you’ll find a large bedroom, with either a double bed or two twin beds according to your preference; a in-suite bathroom; TV with international channels; free wireless internet; a safe to keep your important belongings; a choice of pillows to accommodate your sleeping habits; a reading area by the window.

First floor comprises a kitchenette area, with a fridge and freezer, induction plate, microwave, and a dish-washer. It is fully equipped for light meals preparation. This open space has a large dinning table and also a living area, with full access to a sunny garden.

Guest access

Guest have full access to three different patios, located at three different levels.

For more adventurous people, the garden extends over 1000 square meters and you will find places were to relax, read, or simply enjoy the ocen views surrounded by trees, shrubs, and birds.

Interaction with guests

Although I am of a talkative nature, it is up to you to decide how much interaction is right for you.
Feel free to ask as much as you want and don't worry if you are of a rather reserved character.
It is your time free, so you lead the dance.
And please keep in mind I do travel often, so there might be a few days when the house is all yours.

Other things to note

Enjoy your stay! And do not hesitate to write for more information ;-)

Sancho is a great host, communicative and caring! The house with its two floors is really nice, cosy and providing everything one need. Regarding the location: We would recommend to rent a car (which we didn't) to be more flexible to explore the coast and countryside - even though the train station is about 10 min away by foot and many places can be easily reached. Overall a wonderful experience, thank you Sancho! :))

This was my first experience with Airbnb, but not my first time in renting an apartment. And this had been my most positive experience ever! The apartment looks even better than on the pictures. So many beautiful details to discover in the apartment. The apartment also has a very nice vibe to it. There is a gorgeous view just when you go a little bit above your sitting area outside. The road is just outside the apartment but really when you are in your apartment you don't even hear it. That's really a big plus! Beside the apartment there is a lot to discover in this area and every place is worth to go. You can enjoy the beaches and also very nice areas with forests to walk through. Hiking is also possible. Beautiful palaces in Sintra with huge gardens to amazing beaches in Carcavelos or Nazaré. You can even walk for hours from this apartment to different villages on a boulevard.. We had rented a car but things are also very easy to do with public transportation. Last but certainly not least! Sancho is a very humble, warm person. He gave us (me and my boyfriend) a warm welcome feeling by giving us a tour around the village. Where to find everything and gave us the ins and outs about public transportation. Sancho lives next to the apartment, so when you up for a chat or you need anything, you can knock on his door or else his mom is more then welcome to help you. Lovely people. I would recommend this place to anyone! People that want quietness and relaxation to people that want interaction. All is possible. We said it before but; Thank you Sancho for everything!

Great place, just as it is listed. Our GPS took us to the wrong area of town, and even though Sancho was out of town, his mother drove across town to rescue us! When we got to the place she even gave us a walking tour of the lovely town. Great restaurants within walking, as well as the train station for exploring Lisbon. I'd highly recommend this listening to anyone who wants to explore Lisbon, but stay in a calm, peaceful area with everything you need.

This was a great experience from start to finish Sancho is a delight to deal with. From the date of the booking the communication could not have been bettered, with detailed maps, photo's and travel instructions, and even an offer to pick us up at the airport. On arrival even though it was late Sancho gave us a quick tour of Paco de Arcos pointing out various landmarks and eating places. The apartment is a fabulous part of the renovation of the property, the style and attention to detail was obviously a painstaking labour of love for Sancho. The accommodation was above our expectations and it was a delight to live in the space for the week. The important parts of travelling and lodging for me are, is the bed comfortable, hot water for a shower and cleanliness. Sancho's place absolutely lived up to these principles. In the words of some copywriter " If Carlsberg did accommodation it would be Sancho' s apartment". You looking for somewhere to stay in Lisbon look no further.

Welcome to my Airbnb page, it was made for you! :-) I hope you have much fun exploring it and get curious about Lisbon at its surroundings.

Let me introduce myself: my name is Sancho, I was born in 1973 (easier than telling you my age... it keeps changing every year! (laughter) ).

From very early on, I had the chance of meeting many interesting people from all sorts of different nationalities. As a child, I first attended a British School in Lisbon, and then a French one; I later moved on to Philadelphia for almost four years, and presently I share my time between sunny Lisbon and surprising The Hague (Netherlands).

As a traveler, I personally look for a complete immersion in different cultures and lifestyles, I like to feel the place I am in and to get lost in new surroundings. So, when life guided me to the Netherlands, I found out there were people willing to offer accommodation at their own house to guests from all over.

It so happened I had the chance to renew a late XVIII century house in Lisbon, so it soon became quite evident I wanted to share my luck with other people. I therefore included an old horse-house in the project to welcome and offer a unique experience to guests from all over the world.

Quite extrovert and curious about almost everything, I take a real pleasure in letting people know about my homeland, its culture, and places to visit.

So, do not hesitate to drop a line even if you are just curious to have some inside tips from Lisbon ;-)

Welcome to Portugal !
