Why restrict yourself to the beach when you can have the best of both worlds? This cozy home is located in a quiet village surrounded by mediterranean-like vegetation, right next to the Arrábida Natural Park and a 5-minute drive away from Sesimbra!

Birdwood is a two-story house with 155 sqm, facing east/south/west to ensure maximum sun exposure through out the day and avoid predominant north winds. It consists of three double bedrooms, the first one with a double bed, the second with a double bed and a single sofa bed, and third with a bunk bed for three people and a single sofa bed.

The open plan living space takes advantage of the generous sun exposure through multiple glass doors to the garden. It comprises of a fully equipped kitchen (refrigerator, freezer, stove, coffee maker, microwave, eating utensils, dishwasher, etc.), a dining area, a TV area with cable TV an WiFi internet, and a fireplace. There's three bathrooms, one on the lower floor with shower, and two on the upper floor, one with a bath tub. There's also a pantry for food storage.

In the 300 sqm garden there's a perfect place to eat outside, with barbecue and outdoor dining furniture, a gorgeous porch and a hammock to enjoy the peaceful sunsets and relax after a pleasant day at the beach.

Guests will have access to the entire house and garden, except for a garage that will be permanently closed.

I'll personally handle check-in/check-out for every Guest. Besides that, I won't be present during the Guest's stay.

With its origins dating back to prehistoric times, Sesimbra is an authentic town with a deep rooted sea and rural tradition, and an unique environment that unites perfectly the binomial mountain and sea. As well as fine sands, turquoise waters and a Moorish castle slung high above the centre, this former fishing village offers a deeply sea-connected gastronomy, providing excellent seafood in its waterfront restaurants, along with wines of superb quality arising from a strong winery tradition in the Setúbal Peninsula. Due to its natural and weather conditions, this region is ideal for practicing several types of sports, such has diving, surfing, fishing and sport fishing, canoeing and boating.

Thickly green, hilly and edged by gleaming, clean, golden beaches and chiselled cliffs, the Arrábida Natural Park stretches along the southeastern coast of the Setúbal Peninsula from Setúbal to Sesimbra. Highlights here are the long, golden beaches of windsurfer hot-spot Figueirinha and the sheltered bay of Galapo. Most stunning of all is Portinho da Arrábida with fine sand, azure waters and a small 17th-century fort built to protect the monks from Barbary pirates.

Just 11kms away from the Birdwood house, there's Meco beach, an unspoilt sweep of golden sand, flanked by low-rise cliffs. Try to catch one of its mesmerising sunsets...

Albufeira Lagoon is situated on the western side of the Setúbal Peninsula, in between Caparica and Espichel Cape. This is a place of unique beauty, combining the purity of the ocean, with the lagoon waters and extensive pine tree fields. The lagoon offers great conditions for the practice of sport fishing, sailing or windsurf. It is formed by two main ponds connected by a narrow canal: the small pond, less deep, and the big pond with 15 meters maximum of depth.

You can always take advantage of the proximity and take a day tour in Lisbon. Spread across steep hillsides that overlook the Rio Tejo, Lisbon offers all the delights you’d expect of Portugal’s star attraction, yet with half the fuss of other European capitals. Gothic cathedrals, majestic monasteries and quaint museums are all part of the colourful cityscape, but the real delights of discovery lie in wandering the narrow lanes of Lisbon’s lovely backstreets.

There are a couple of restaurants and cafes within a 10 min walking range. You can also find grocery stores, supermarkets, nice shops and traditional bakeries within walking distance.

The Birdwood house is just a 45-minute drive away from Lisbon, and there's plenty of parking room outside.

There's a bus connection from Praça de Espanha (Lisbon) to Cotovia, and from there it's a 15-minute walk to reach the house. Buses depart every hour or so.

Don't worry, in case you're not renting a car, I'll pick you up on the airport...

From Cotovia, there's public transportation to any local attraction.

Birdwood house would be ideally suited for one/two couples with children. The neighbourhood is extremely peaceful, with very low traffic and plently of space to play outside. Sesimbra bay, along with the southeastern coast of the Setúbal Peninsula, are excellent for families with children due to its calm, crystal blue waters.

Ruca était très flexible sur les heures d'arrivée et de départ, ce qui nous a bien arrangé. Il nous a bien accueillis et a répondu à nos questions principales. Comme il était un peu presse, il nous a ensuite recontactes et nous a donné à ce moment une série d'informations et de conseils très sympathiques (les bons restos, les plages, etc). La maison est bien située pour alterner les visites à Lisbonne (nous avons privilégié l'accès en ferry pour éviter les problèmes de parking) et les sites plutôt nature. Même si la maison était plus petite que ce que nous avions imaginé, nous avons passé un très agréable séjour, profitant également de la cour fleurie.

Ruca and his mother were good host. He couldn't be there upon our arrival but his mother was there and made us feel very welcome. The house was very confortable and had everything we need. The only thing I was not crazy about was the neighborhood because it did not feel like country side.

Very nice location, the house is great and exactly as described. Everything you need ist nearby, perfect place to relax or start trips to Sesimbra, Lisboa or the beaches and other nice places of the region. We had a absolutely great time. Ruca is a very nice guy, answers immediately and gives also helpful advices, whatever it is.

We stayed in Birdwood House for the entire month of May, 2016 and from beginning to end it was nothing short of terrific. Ruca met us at the house, showed us all the little details and made us feel welcome (the bottle of local Portuguese wine enhance the welcome even more.) When we had questions, he responded by text within an hour. This house is beautifully designed for all weather. If it is cold, close all the doors and windows and the solar heat is great. A little colder and you turn on the heat. If you are warm, open the back door and the front door, and the breeze is marvelous. We ate almost all our dinners outside in the covered patio. The kitchen is definitely set up for cooking, whatever kind of food you wish. Because we were there for a month, we did almost all our cooking in-house, which included fresh fish, clams and sausage, feijoada, and grilled ribs. There is a convenient outdoor barbecue (next to the patio). The house was very quiet, particularly at night and we slept soundly. The neighborhood is quite safe and the house is secure. It provided us with a perfect base for exploring Lisbon and the surrounding area as well as a trip up north to Porto and down south to Sagres. Couldn't be better.

Risposta di Ruca:
Unfortunately, I had Instant Booking on and forgot to block new years' eve, which left me no other options but to cancel Tiago's reservation as soon as I got the notification — sorry about that! To prevent further mistakes like this, I've disabled Instant Booking. Don't worry — I receive the requests on my mobile phone and the average response time is less than 20min... Thanks!

We just spent a week with the whole family ( 5 people) at Rucas home in Portugal. The house is spacious with 2 bathrooms and an extra WC, and has a nice court yard . Everything was as described. On our arrival, Ruca was waiting for us , showed us around and made sure we are comfortable. The area is safe, green and easy access to supermarkets and a restaurant. If you want to get around you will need a car (which we had) . surroundings are great beaches, a natural reserve and of course Lisboa - which you shoud not mos if you are spending time there. I can only recommend the stay at Birdwood house.

Le logement correspond à l'annonce. Le quartier résidentiel est agréable avec une proximité vers les plages, la ville de Sesimbra et Une grande facilité pour atteindre Lisbonne en voiture. Nous étions 6, 3 adultes et 3 enfants qui ont particulièrement appréciés l'accès internet fluide et le hamac..., nous avons aussi appréciés les deux salles de bains et la douceur du climat. Les propriétaires sont de bons conseils et très prévenants. En bref nous recommandons vivement cette location.
