Other things to note
WHAT IS INCLUDED
- Clean towels, linens, sheets and pool towels are provided. There is no daily cleaning service or replacement of towels. You can ask for any number of house cleanings and towel / linen replacement for an extra fee.
- This is a self-catering rental. This means that we will leave you a starting amount of certain items like toilet paper or detergent but when it runs out you should get more yourself.

CELL PHONE AND INTERNET SERVICE
- Cell phone signal is weak. Calls can be difficult to hear or even disconnect.
- Internet comes from mobile cell service. Expect sometimes slow speeds or even disconnects. You can move the wi-fi router around the house to try and get a stronger signal, sometimes it helps.

POWER
- If you turn on many heaters at max power or other high power electrical equipment at the same time (like washing machine, hair dryer, toaster, water boiler, etc.) the safety electrical switches can go off. This is normal and all you have to do is go to the switch box and turn back on all the switches.

BUGS, ANIMALS, SUN - COUNTRY LIFE!
- City folk, prepare for the country!
- Remember this is the countryside. Expect to find small animals and insects like ants, bees, mice, lizards, etc. Other larger animals that are possible to see sometimes are fox, boar, sheep, ... :)
- Bring sun cream, hats and insect repellent for your skin
- The nearest town is 12 km away, you will need a car.

CHECK-IN TIME
- Check-in time is from 4 PM to 8 PM. However we are flexible and will try to accommodate your arrival time. If possible we will meet you earlier so you can drop off your luggage and get the keys. In this case please note that the house may not be clean and ready until mid-afternoon and you should not stay in the property while it's being cleaned.
- We are flexible regarding your arrival time to the house, but it also depends on the schedule of the local lady who will welcome you there. Please understand that it may not be possible at all hours.
- Remember that this is an isolated house in the countryside and the person who meets you is going there on purpose. We really need to know your arrival in advance so that all goes well! :)
- The only way to be sure and have the house ready on an early morning arrival is to book the previous night.
- It is usually not possible to do a check-in after 8 PM. If you arrive later than that, please check with us in advance.

CHECK-OUT TIME
- You should have everything packed and be ready to leave the apartment at 11 AM, or at the latest when the cleaners arrive.

ACCESSIBILITY
- The attic bedroom is accessible only by a narrow spiral staircase. Therefore, this part of the house is not suitable for guests with mobility problems.
- The gate to the grounds has to be opened and closed manually

OWNER ACCESS
- Every few days the gardener will go there (unnanounced) to clean the pool and tend the grounds.
- On other occasions, authorized persons may need to access the property for maintenance services or other necessary tasks (owner, cleaners, repairmen, etc.). We will try to avoid this and to warn you in advance.

Location

Mosqueirão, Setúbal, Portugal

Located in the hilly countryside near Grândola.
There are lots of lovely nearby beaches to choose from - like Melides or Comporta. The house is 30 minutes from the largest stretch of beach in Europe !

It is easy to access from Lisbon, it is just over 1 hour, it is 130 kms almost all by motorway.

Nearest places:
- At 1 minute drive , you have the "Taberna dos Mosqueirões" for simple but delicious local food. It is where the locals go. It's advisable to book in advance so they can get what you want. You can also order food to take out.
- At 5 minutes there is Sobreiras Country Hotel, a charming modern hotel, for a coffee, dinner or drink.
- At 12 km (15 minutes by car) you will find "Grândola", a small town with everything you need, restaurants, bars, cafés, pharmacy, supermarkets, etc. There is the large supermarket Continente open every day.
It's beautiful and perfect for a relaxing family vacation.


Staying here has this advantage: if you like to explore you can easily access varied beaches and country places, all of a fantastic natural beauty!

There are many beaches easily accessible. From here to Comporta it's 35 minutes by car. There are also many other beaches at a similar distance, equally or even more beautiful, such as the beach of Aberta Nova, Carvalhal, São Torpes, Troia ... and so many others.

The house is super quiet, you can sit by the pool hear the birds sing and the animals of neighboring farms, it is a delight!

Being in the countryside there are insects and small animals. Bring insect repellent and sunscreen!

The activities we usually do are go to the beach, eat or dine in Grândola (my cousins have a fantastic restaurant, with several awards), on the beach we sometimes stay until dinner, on the esplanades on the beach with good seafood. In Comporta there are also some restaurants, shops, etc. In Troia there is also everything, including a Casino. In the countryside, you can go hiking or mountain bike. The "Badoca Safari Park" is not far away, it's a mini-reserve with giraffes and other free animals. Children love it. You can learn to surf in the beach school of S. Torpes. If you love horses there are many places where you can ride, even go for a ride on the beach just like Madonna who sometimes comes to this area :)

I'm Portuguese, married with two children. I speak English, French, some Spanish and of course Portuguese. We travel every year and like to stay at other Airbnb places! :) We love to meet people from all around the world and tell them about our beautiful city of Lisbon. When my wife and I decided to buy and prepare an apartment for guests for the first time, we furnished and decorated it as if it was our own home, trying to make a cozy, comfortable and practical place to stay. We came to enjoy this activity so much that we soon prepared another apartment... and then another... Eventually this grew of into a small business! Now we also have Francisca, Catarina and Carla helping us. They too love welcoming guests from all over the world!
