Some of the comments from our Visitors' Book in Casita Violeta
Couldn't be better .....
Not only is the villa and it's surrounding gardens and pool absolutely lovely but Murches itself, and Cascais, have so much to offer in terms of things to do and see and wonderful places to eat and drink. However, the most outstanding thing about this holiday for us was our hosts, Eva and Hilario. From taking us to the local supermarket when we arrived, providing an incredibly accommodating shuttle service into Cascais in the evenings, giving restaurant suggestions and thoughtfully leaving a bottle of wine as a welcome, nothing was too much trouble. This felt like a holiday with friends and was never intrusive. The casita had all the comforts of home and was perfectly secluded. We had the pool to ourselves for the duration of our visit as well as the use of the BBQ, washing line and several options for sitting and enjoying a glass of wine at the end of a hard day sunbathing. The Restaurante Colecção d'Aromas in Murches is wonderful. A bottle of house red wine at 3.50euros and surprising dishes such as octopus and pineapple curry which was absolutely delicious. We found a number of nice places to eat in Cascais, particularly O Poeta where the steak on a stone was excellent value and very tasty. Drinks wise you'd have to go a long way to get better than the Crow Bar. Excellent selection of bottled Belgian and craft beers as well as an impressive selection of real ales and their own Mead Beer which went down very well. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday we hope to repeat in the future.

We had 3 amazing weeks with a lot of surfing and great weather. We loved staying here, we had everything we looked for. Great pool, nice garden and a great atmosphere. We liked Portugal a lot and the nice people who is living here. We also had a great evening with Jamie on "Coconuts". It was "pumping"!

A long way to come but worth it. Lovely casita, the warmth of the friendship equal to the heat of the sun. Excellent public transport. Thanks so much for the introduction to St.Andrew's Church of Scotland in Lisbon. An enchanting church and the people are so friendly! What a delight. Ate logo!

We have been to many foreign countries but none have been so unique as yours. We have met many people in our lives but never have we met so many friendly and good-hearted people gathered at one place. Thank you.

Having had vacations in Greece, Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Denmark and Sweden, we agree upon PORTUGAL RULES! We never saw such accommodations, such well-equipped and with such a low "distress level". Will be back.

Thank you so much for your hospitality during our stay! We loved the pool, patio and basketball. Casita Rosa helped us to sail faster at the 2007 World Championship in Cascais! Best always.
