We stayed in Casita Rosa in September 2014 for a week. There are two casitas on site, both beautiful. In Casita Rosa we had a large bedroom, a large kitchen/lounge with a double sofa bed & a spacious bathroom with shower.
The hosts were brilliant, the owner was away on holiday so her son Jamie was there to help us, for about 40 euro he picked us up from the airport (even at midnight!), he was full of useful information too. They have a lovel;y dog, Bonnie, who we took for a walk round the amazing area behind the casita.
There is a good little restaurant in the village, along with a bakery and a small shop.
The public transport is easy to use form the village of Murches down into Cascais, and it is cheap to get a taxi back. We caught the train to Lisbon from Cascais and it was less than 5 euro return.
I would recommend this if you want to be within reach of Lisbon, but are looking for a relaxing holiday with a pool instead of being in the busy city.

Just came back from a trip at Casita Violeta and had a great time. Eva and Hilario were both amazingly friendly and so helpful with everything from tourist info to dry cleaning our clothes when we got soaked in a downpour!
We felt welcome from the moment we stepped in and spent the first night out with our hosts to get to know the local town.
Room was warm and cosy, even in the pouring rain; yes we didn't have too much luck with the weather on our weekend!
Bed was comfy and kitchen facilities were more than fine.
Don't worry about what to do while you're there as Eva is a fully qualified tour guide so can give you 1001 different things to do and places to go.
Both Eva and Hilario speak perfect English as well as Portuguese so are perfect hosts to acquaint you with the culture if you don't speak the language.
All in all a really fun trip and certain to go back sometime.
