Dear Iris and Geert,

For the first time we spent 2 weeks in the same place, and what a place it is!

We enjoyed the house, the area, and of course the pool!
A very relaxed holiday for the three of us.

Dear Geert and Iris,

Thank you for letting us enjoy the house for two weeks and all the tips about the area.

The weather was somewhat variable, but for visiting the various places the weather was very pleasant, sometimes even hot.

We have seen a lot. Such as Óbidos, Tomar, Batalha, Nazaré, Caldas da Rainha, Coimbra, Lisbon, Sintra, Porto, Alcobaça and São Martinho do Porto. If you want to go to the beach for a day and want to swim, Salir do Porto, São Martinho do Porto and Foz do Arelho are recommended. We found Sintra very touristic. Actually an “Efteling” without attractions but with the queues.
Buddha Eden Park is also nice to visit. Very beautiful!

Good restaurants nearby:
- Pizzaria Portobello
- O Cabeço (very nice location on a mountain)
- Local restaurant is worth the try
Every day there is a large fruit and vegetable market in Caldas da Rainha. There is also an indoor fish market there. Really worth to get your groceries.Do you like ice cream? Then go to Gelatomania on the promenade of São Martinho do Porto.

Have fun in this beautiful part of Portugal and hope you will enjoy it as much as we did!


Dear Geert & Iris,

I want to thank you very much for the super nice stay in Casas Fruta.

A search on the internet led us to your holiday homes. And we are very happy that we were able to spend our vacation here with our friends.

Your homes offer sufficient privacy as well as the possibility to enjoy with several families together. This is very pleasant.

Thank you again and good luck with Casas Fruta.

We ended up in a 'warm nest': everything super clean, everything has been thought of, down to the details (including the basic stock). Sunparcs, Landal Greenparcs etc. could be educated by Geert and Iris. Geert and Iris, an idea to offer them workshops in cleaning and the like? :-)

We had a great week. It started cloudy, but gladly at the end of the week it was great! Thank you also for your extensive information binder. We have used it a lot!

Overall enjoyed house, pool (super!), environment, Costa de Prata!
