“FIRST CLASS, 5 STAR ACCOMODATION”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This spacious, well maintained villa suited our party of 5 adults. The views were spectacular. On arrival we received the welcome pack with all the necessary bits to set you up after the day travelling. We were able to unwind and relax around the pool in the heat usually there would be a welcoming breeze being up in the valley. With the windows opening on both sides of the lounge and dinning room you would get a through breeze if you wanted to sit inside. On an evening you could enjoy eating out on the veranda looking over the valley, also seeing the sun set. The shop in the village stocked most things and was most convenient for getting bread etc daily. The local people were friendly and helpful. We visited Nazare, Peniche, S. Martinho Do Porto beaches. Obidos, Alcobaca and Lisbon. We had two lovely meals at Alcobaca ( Riu's Restaurant and O Cabeco). The villa was the best we have stayed in over the years and would highly recommend it.

“Comfort and Luxury in the sunshine”
Reviewed 30 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Vista Colina is a little bit of heaven in rural Portugal.
The décor and little touches are wonderful. Very well stocked, everything had been thought of.
Very clean and tidy.
All the creature comforts you could want.
Definitely need a car as there are wonderful places and beaches to visit.

“Superb villa”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Very comfortable villa in a relaxing rural setting. If your looking for the true `Portuguese experience` then this is an ideal location. Local farmers instead of tacky gift shops, peace and quiet instead of nightclubs.This is the perfect escape with almost guaranteed sunshine. A car is essential. The local town,coast and tourist sites are easily accessible.By day the pool takes centre stage but the BBQ and enormous balcony come into their own with lovely evening views over the surrounding countryside.
Recommend this villa as a perfect `get a way from it` destination.

“A lovely villa.”
Reviewed 6 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Vista Colina is in a very peaceful, rural setting with lovely views of the 'real' Portugal. Easy access to excellent beaches and places of interest. The villa was clean, spacious, comfortable and superbly equipped. It’s was so nice to stay in a villa that feels like a home. There is a well stocked local shop within easy walking distance and other amenities a short drive away in the lovely town of Alcobaca. We would not hesitate in recommending this villa to our friends and family as a great holiday base. We look forward to returning again.
