Bem...Não há palavras...Desde a proprietária (Dª Paula) as condições da casa ...IMPECÁVEL!!! Uma casa tratada com muito bom gosto com pormenores fantásticos e equipada para 14 pessoa até ao mais pequeno detalhe! Com toda a certeza será um sitio a repetir!

Excelente fim de semana nesta quinta fantástica. Muito bem recebidos pela Sra. Maria Paula que logo nos fez sentir como se fosse a nossa própria casa. Uma quinta bem limpa e cuidada, com uma arquitectura e decoração de muito bom gosto. Bem equipada e muito confortável, não nos faltou nada, a não ser mais dias para desfrutar. Fica a vontade de voltar. Recomendo vivamente.

Uma estadia num sitio esplêndido, poderia se dizer que é um sítio rural dentro de um espaço urbano. É uma casa muito interessante, pois a sua arquitetura quer exterior quer interior remete nos para o passado em diferentes épocas, e para as pessoas que tenham uma boa imaginação poderão em cada objeto de decoração encontrar uma história de outros tempos, inclusive relembrar o seu passado. Simplesmente excecional.
