Customer Reviews

 

If your idea of a holiday is being close enough to the action but tucked away in a picturesque cottage property in beautiful surroundings then Casa Oasis is the place for you. Its quirky owners are British artists who left the hustle and bustle of the UK for a more laid back lifestyle feeding their creativity. It was noticed recently by the Sunday Times as a recommendation for those who want a bit more to their holiday than sun and beach. 

 

The land owned by Kit and Samantha has 2 properties for let. The first is this delightful 2 bedroom spacious cottage on one floor with far reaching country views and ample private space outdoors to enjoy them. Inside the property has a lounge with dining area, a kitchen and bathroom with shower. There are 2 bedrooms. The first bedroom has a king sized bed –sleeping 2 people. The second bedroom has a twin bed sleeping a further 2 people.

 

There is a separate and spacious studio for let which can sleep a further 2 people. There is an additional charge for this property.

 

For keeping in touch with the world there is a TV with some English channels provided by a Satellite and you also have free Wi-Fi for use. The owners have also provided a DVD player and DVDs.

 

If you want to switch all of that off then you can just kick back and enjoy the quiet and beautiful surroundings. For the winter months you can light your log burner and use the complementary wood provided by the owners to be snug.

 

As Sao Martinho Do Porto is just 3 kms away the owners have provided 2 bikes for easy access into town. From Sao Martinho you have a gorgeous beach and plenty of watersports, restaurants and shops including a large supermarket. The area of the Villa is called Serra De Mangues, a very quiet and exclusive area along the dramatic coast line. 

 

If you are looking for an experience on your holiday then Kit and Samantha also offer art workshops on demand. Please enquire and we can give you more detail about this.
